    struggling to wake up, thinking of my friend who just got out of major surgery,
    relieved to know that hes safe back in his room,
    now the long slow recovery and rehab begins.
    Asking my spirit helpers to help him to understand patience
    and stay in hospital for as long as hes asked to.

    Ozzie is licking my toes, tickles.

    heater noise, kettle nearly whistles

    thirsty , lips dry.

    It's a quarter past 6 PM. I can smell potatoes baking in the oven. Carrots and broccoli steaming on the stove. The little oven fan gently whirring... wonder why a hot oven would need a fan. Car sounds from the road that I don't usually hear... ah it's a motorcycle. A couple of lamps are on now and the outside light is fading. The overhead fan casts a shadow on the ceiling, slowly turning.

    The phone just rang ... my cousin calling

    There's something about looking at my hands that brings me instantly into the present moment ... does anybody else have that? It just grounds me into my body like nothing else. For a flighty Gemini like me, that's so good!

    5:26 PM ... just off work a while ago, sipping my evening beer, and browsing a little on Avalon, kids are playing (off in their own world, but try to get me to provide input on some things I have no clue about because it is from their own little world -- hehe funny) Smelling some cooked beef, that my GF made .. likely won't eat today though .. maybe a bite later ... Computer fan humming Y&R in background (ugh) ... deep breath in ... erase the thoughts... and out, there, much better ....

    Just got a call from my mom, in Abbottsford B.C. (Vancouver). Oh, I wanted to argue, to shake her out of her dream world. And, I'll admit, I did throw in a few comments to make her think, but its like water off a duck's back. Like the beggar on her street corner who got her mad because his sign changed from "hungry, I need food" to "thanks for the help, I've got a job, now I need start up money". So I told her that not long ago my Valdi went out to panhandle for a few hours because I had no money for the bus to get to work. I'm not sure she even heard me, so good is her programming. Oh well...
    I love my mom.
    May the Most High bless her soul.

    Junebug, wish I could be there with you and lift the lids of your saucepans to check on your veggies.
    Your hands are your means of expression, there is a belief that Geminis talk with their hands. Their hands are used for their multiple skills.
    Cancer also is a hand sign but their hands are used for strength, like baking bread, kneading, sculpting, massaging.
    Ulli resting now, and hearing more crickets than ever as there has been no rain today. Cloudy afternoon, though, and the late afternoon sungazing had to be cancelled.
    Made another rosary today...not sure if it has just become fashionable to wear them, or people are actually praying more.
    Not being a Catholic myself I will have to ask around. Family must find it amusing that crazy ulli is making rosaries now, but times are tough and marketing is everything.

    Ulli, the veggies came out perfect! Sometimes I overcook them, but not today. I am just full enough, and enjoying the daylight's turn into evening.
    Interesting about hands and Gemini ... it's so true that I talk with my hands, although have tried to mitigate it over the years, fairly successfully. But it still pops out sometimes.
    You are so generous with your knowledge of astrology. I think I need to hire you to do a natal chart report for me ... I will PM you.
    Time for the evening walk. And my son is waiting to use my laptop.

    Husband watching something funny in the next room.. enjoying his bursts of laughter. Just heard a familiar
    clunking noise on the back deck.. mama raccoon and her baby getting into the recyclables. I flip on the light to see the baby with the coffee cream container to its mouth - makes me laugh.. Little dogs run to the back door - racoons scatter.

    Gentle rain is falling, with thunder as it approached. Wonder if Ray Charles ever thought about singing 'a rainy night in Alabama'?? It's right next door to Georgia.

    I'm about to write out a menu for the rest of the week ... Thai Broccoli Salad w/sunflower seeds, a big green salad, artichoke-avocado-tomato salad, baked butternut squash, spinach feta phyllo pie, butternut-ginger bisque, and eggplant provencal. I just have to figure out what things go together.

    Am in my head again ... watching my hands as I type brings me back.

    still waking, slow day so far.
    Tall glass warming my hand, coffee strong and black.

    Right arm is numb, and throbs.
    Note to self, disconnect energy from hospital friend now he is ok.

    Baby broccoli seedlings call me to be planted outside,
    the cycle of nature waits for no one.

    Thinking if we stick to living by the cycles of nature,
    the future will take care of itself.

    Dream remnants tug at me,
    make note to journey later on to clean up from last night.

    Make note to resolve new healing task,
    has to be private but still i need help with this one.

    Must build proving box today for sour dough,
    so many projects, need better focus.

    Gym might help that,
    if i don't get flattened too much by being around too many people.
    Have to pick quiet times to go.

    Hosp friend just messaged me from his phone,
    said he saw a group of guides surrounding him,
    very cool.

    Drier noise through headphones,
    need shower,
    water good for disconnecting.

    Guide to my right nudging me along.

    3.13 in the Afternoon. Gardener has just arrived and started up his whipper snipper. Sitting at my coffee table, taking a break with a cuppa and biscuit. Big day. Painted the render over the fireplace brickwork, and it really lightens up the room, though the render I did looks more the 'Adobe' look than a professional job. Been puttying up the holes in the floor boards in preparation for sanding. Though I rent this, there is something about it being my home, and I am happy to spend some money doing it. Not a popular concept.
    Yesterday I made a big move and closed my visa and savings account with a certain bank, an account I've held for a long time. This is the season for change. Hoping to at some stage simply piff my mobile into the ocean, it has so many memories, and its time to move on.

    Seven in the morning, hearing birds and crickets and the sound of the school bus picking up the kids in the neighborhood. Several cats within easy reach, as per usual.

    observing how consciousness blends into the surroundings, looking back at myself typing this....

    I love the early morning time, really any time the sun is close to the horizon, everything seems to be a little more elastic.

    PL - nice post! I hadn't thought about the elastic thing, but now that you say it, I must agree.

    And it reminds me of my favorite quotation... I've loved this one since I first saw it, even before I knew I was an herbalist.

    "If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy,
    and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs,
    is more elastic, more starry, more immortal—
    that is your success.
    All nature is your congratulation,
    and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself."

    --Henry David Thoreau

    Thanks for bringing it to light on this lovely, foggy, rainy morning.

    Thanks for the quote, JB, love me some Thoreau in the morning.

    Hot coffee, kitty cats, and the blue jays are getting the day started. Granny always said never kill a mocking bird, and never ever kill a woodpecker, but shoot all the blue jays you can. I found out later that blue jays are egg stealers and if allowed to over-populate will diminish other species. Sorta like people in that regard, I suppose.

    Now some old crow is telling us all about it.

    I do love living in the country.

    Overcast skies, first time this week. It's been such pretty weather since the tropical storm blew over.

    Another cat demands attention with rear paws on the stomach and front paws on the shoulder. A little scratching and he flops over and now I am typing with one thumb.

    Lunchtime, sat in the office. No energy whatsoever, getting no work done - too many thoughts in my head of yesterday - took Mum to the hospital, was told the cancer can't be treated, first time she realised this.... can't get the picture of her face out of my mind. Damn. 82, past 20 years of the worst health, a mind of steel, a life of giving, a heart of gold. I hope I can be half the person she is.

    I'm thinking it won't be long before the directors won't allow me more time off, and I'll need more time off....

    Where did I store that old dream of healing people? God how I want to do that.

    Words in head..... "life isn't meant to be fair, it's just meant to be there".

    1:40 Must work on positive vibes



    EDIT. Then I read your posts good people, I wonder, for the fleeting moments that you say something good here, do you realise how much it helps others? Thanks to all of you.


    Peace,

    Pickle

    Good morning Avalon!

    Sore neck today but otherwise in good spirits. Going to see 42, Avalon member today for lunch.
    Looking forward to it.

    After my coffee and toast with jam I must do yoga and concentrate on neck and upper back. Held my headstand too long yesterday. Knew it too, but purposefully held it a minute longer. Oh well. Live and learn.

    Have a good day everyone.
