I can’t even…..Uranus went retrograde this week and holy hell it blows! If one more planet goes retrograde….I am hiding in my bed until it’s over! What a week!!!
Today I came home from work to find the basement flooded! All of the roads were flooded on the way home but this was in the house!!
It rained a little and this was on the floor. This drain goes nowhere I guess so I didn’t worry about it….because that is what I was told. Today the skies opened and everything flooded! It was a crazy drive home!! I walked in the door and looked down the basement stairs and I could see a bit of water. I called the landlord and by the time I got the through the drain in the basement was like a geyser! Water was shooting up from the basement floor…what the heck? This picture has the girl’s foot before the geyser when there was only about an inch of water.
The sump pump was working but it could only do so much when the water was coming in that fast. It eventually went down and now we are in the “multiple fan” part of the process. It was a hot mess! On the plus side? I didn’t read the book club book so I didn’t have to fudge my way through it. What a mess! I am very lucky to have the landlords that I do. They were over and helping in any way that they could!
I was this far into my post last night when I hit a wall…I just couldn’t finish it, I was done. I tried to watch the news to see what was happening in our town after the 3 1/2 inches of water that fell in a couple of hours but I couldn’t do that either. Bed…I needed to get to bed….so I did.
It’s been more than 24 hours since the basement debacle and it’s mostly dry. I had more stuff that I wanted to get done today than what was actually accomplished. The weekend just isn’t long enough for me. I have my Lemongrass Spa launch party/ open house tomorrow and I have miles to go before I am ready. Thankfully the girl is a good helper and she will get most of the cleaning done. The kitchen and the floor fall under my jurisdiction. When I am done here that is where I am headed.
I am making a veggie tray and a fruit and cheese tray for tomorrow. That’s good…right? I don’t want too much but I do want people to have something to munch on. Mostly I want them to buy stuff and book parties….. baby steps I guess.
Before I had my coffee this morning I smudged with sage and sweet grass and built a new moon crystal grid. This grid feels different..it makes my heart beat harder when I get to close to it. Maybe it’s the crazy energies that are out there right now? I have been assured that things will calm down tomorrow…good Goddess I hope so! I extra smudged just in case.
Today was dragonfly day. I have seen more dragonflies today than I have in the last three years. I have seen a lot this week but today they were everywhere! Thursday when I went to get my nap chair out of my trunk I saw two and said “awe, he is carrying his friend” thinking one was injured. Then it made a few more passes and I realized what I was seeing…grabbed my chair and said “geez…get a room!” If I have ever witnessed that before, I have blocked it from my memory because this was a first for me.
Did I mention this was a strange week? I welcome the predicted calming energies of tomorrow …..Zia
