I started my day dreaming of black cats…again, as well as the eagle goddess…again. There were houses on the water and the eagle goddess was on an island. These dreams all ended with a little sleep paralysis…my least favorite thing. I felt like I could move my left hand a little this time and that was new.
This week is chapter four of Women Who Run With the Wolves and while it’s sad we can’t get together…we have found creative ways to connect.
Then the mail came….I received my Ritual Deck from Zenned Out and two magical magazines that I had ordered a little while ago. This was turning out to be a magical day!
Yesterday I tackled a foot stool that SB gave me when I moved here almost two years ago. I finally pulled the old cross stitch off and let me tell you…that was a work out! I left the cream textured fabric alone and painted the base. I cut my unicorn pillow in half so I could still use it as a pillow, which required my sewing machine but it was a fast sew.
The red velvet on the inside would not have been my first choice but since I can’t run up to the fabric store, I had to use what was on hand. I have had the red velvet fabric since at least 2001, it was time to use it for something. All in all it wasn’t too tough of a project. The hardest part was taking off the old fabric and then there was the part where I put the fabric on upside down. You can’t see that the hinges are on the wrong side from this picture but trust me…they are wrong. Live and learn, I guess. Now I have a place to store all of my oracle/tarot cards. Plus it’s nice to have pet free/ kid free zone of my own.
Work will go back to normal in a couple of days and I think there was a little bit more pressure to get my things in order stat! The over dramatic part of myself was all “I’ll never have extra time again” It’s because I didn’t get as much accomplished as I “feel” I should have on my extra days off. I still have tomorrow? Today the sun was shining which always makes it easier for me to get motivated, hopefully tomorrow is not a washout.
The kids went to visit their dad and it was nice to sit in a quiet, mess free zone. I feel like I shouldn’t even need to have these conversations since my kids are both in their twenties. The Girl does like to nest on the coffee table and the Boy is always filling the sink up with random dishes. It just feels like a really old battle these days….Zia
