I have been experimenting in a few ways. The biggest would be the constant mess in the kitchen. Yesterday I made more room in the freezer by using up some of the pumpkin I roasted and pureed last fall. I made a pumpkin chili, pumpkin cornbread, and some pumpkin chive biscuits. Everything was gluten free and it wasn’t bad. The chili tasted the best. The Boy just moved everything around in his bowl because the Girl told him there was pumpkin in the chili. He ate the cornbread and it had pumpkin in it…because he didn’t know. (insert mom rolling her eyes) Pumpkin is high in vitamin A and C and you couldn’t even taste it. The Girl and I liked it. I’m sure there will be more experiments like this in the coming weeks.
I had another friend tell me that I should be putting my phone in airplane mode at night. The kids can’t go anywhere that isn’t a necessity so they are home when I am sleeping. I decided that now would be the perfect opportunity to give this a try. Friday night was the first night and I did feel more rested Saturday morning. Sometimes when I wake up my eyes are still tired. This morning I was up for about two hours and could have gone back to sleep. I woke up tired again. My dreams are different…not as vivid, for now anyway.
The way I felt when I woke up this morning was why I tried my third experiment. I had a headache, my eyes were groggy, and I woke up tired. I haven’t had any wine since Saturday night, I thought maybe I was starting to have a reaction to it? This morning proves it isn’t the wine. The copious amounts of hot water with lemon and ginger that I have been consuming the last few days have been helpful for this experimental detox. The only thing that may have contributed to the headache was the webinar I watched last night. It was an herbal talk and the dude liked to talk and talk and talk. It was over an hour and a half. I still had my contacts in so no protection from the blue light and I was trying to read some of the comments…nighttime modified monovision on a phone can be a struggle. I don’t normally hold my phone and look at it for that long, maybe that is a factor? I’ll figure it out eventually….
Do you remember that Barred Owl I saw on my drive home last month or the month before? I look for that beauty every time I am on that road. Yesterday on my way to work to wash windows, I was horrified to see it laying in the middle of the road. It took everything in me not to go back and get it out of the road. It was still there two hours later. I grabbed the Girl and a blanket and we went back. It was gone when we came back, I hope whoever took it was going to bury it in the back yard like we planned to do. I have seen a lot of things dead in the road but never an owl. Today on my way back from dropping off the recycling there was a garter snake in the road. He was a light tan with red stripes, he didn’t look smashed but he wasn’t moving. Both are sad but the owl really bothered me.
Now for the weirdness….last night I was in the shower and the steam on the wall outside of the shower was making faces. They morphed into face after face. It started out looking like Jesus then a woman, then Jim Morrison, then an alien, then Jesus again, and then Sekhmet. The Sekhmet made me stand back…the other images were more subjective…like when you look at clouds. I could give a sketch artist details of her face and mostly her eyes or eye…it was half of her face. I ended my shower right then because I was a little freaked out.
Hestia whispered to me at the end of January and now Sekhmet? I’m not sure what to think about all of this. Hestia is home….also fire. Sekhmet is more of a hard-ass but also fire. This still makes no sense to me. I read that Bastet is another side of Sekhmet and she is more similar to Hestia, that makes more sense. But I “knew” it was Sekhmet so I guess I have no idea???? I guess when the time is right, I will know for sure.
The energy today feels really heavy…have you felt it? Maybe it’s just more of my weirdness…Zia
