Sideways, but fine.

             A full hour late?  Why yes, that’s correct.  We are posting this in a tardy fashion.  (Not a record, but close.)  I have a half-written draft, with today’s message (now going to be tomorrow’s message) saved and not ready for viewing.

             Wanna know why?  Of course you do.  The card below will speak for itself.  Also?  Emma showed up last night.  She stayed over.  And we all slept late.  Then today, she and I went to a yard sale (held by a school pal of hers).  Which was next door to a fundraising baked goods table.  We got treats.

             And these treasures.  The cabinet/shelving unit is about four feet high, or around there, I can’t really estimate size.  I just know that it’s not as tall as me.

In front of our driveway gate, with some persistent greenery trying to escape the yard.

             The fabric draped over the side is what I selected.  Batiks.  Super nice.  But slightly musty smelling.  They are soaking in vinegar right now, and will soon be hanging on my outdoor clothes line.  Yes, in the rain.  It’s supposed to come back tonight.

             The afternoon just spun out of control after that.  A neighbor called to say that ANOTHER neighbor had a big red chair on the sidewalk.  For FREE!  Obviously we needed to get down there, quickly!

             Turns out, it’s the beloved large chaise that belongs to one of my oldest friend’s daughter who (due to circumstances beyond her control) has recently moved back home.  Mom and Dad don’t have room for this.  But guess what?  I do.  Because I sent Emma home with HER beloved (ugly!) chair.

             I told Megan I’d store this one for her, until she was out on her own again.  And by “store” it, I obviously meant that I’d sit in it and read library books.  Soon there will be a nice picture for you, but now, here’s the daily draw.

The Tower – 16
mostly reversed

             This is the direction we like to see our Towers.  Buffered and less than destructive.   Instead, this way tells us that we’ve been through the worst part already, and what changes are still on their way won’t be too shocking.

             It just felt slightly skewed and not too painful.  Which is always good to see.  When we transition it can be uncomfortable, but with a predominantly crooked view, we’ll survive with all of our limbs intact.

Today’s Deck:

Robin Wood Tarot

             There is no mileage today because we had to drive, in order to move furniture around.  And who knows what tomorrow is going to do, I’ll be starting my day off by getting a dental x-ray.
