It’s a good time to journal, and so I am going to barrow from one of my favorite blogs Abide With Me. Every now and then she does a journaling post with lots of headings as prompts. I am changing them a little and borrowing a little from others.
First Drink of the Day (From Thalassa)
Water (I strongly believe you should start each day with a pint of water) followed closely by my coffee. I make it at the strength my husband likes it and the pour myself 1/3 cup with 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup milk.
Sowing/ Harvesting: We have been watching The Lorax a lot lately. I have always been a fan of the book but the movie is nice too there is a line in the song that says “you can’t reap what you don’t sow” I like it I have always liked the saying you reap what you sow but for some reason looking at it the other way seems very meaningful to me. I guess it is the planner in me. What it makes me think of all the times we wish things were different, we wish they turned out different but we didn’t sow anything different.
In the Garden: The California poppies have just started flowering and the mustard and wild radishes are cheerfully speckled over the back yard. The peas we planted are doing well and I should go check on the squash I planted.
Creating:Bah I still feel like I’m not creating anything. heck I haven’t even been blogging like I would like to, which means I’m not creating words or stories.
Looking: house after house after house. Each one a disappointment To far away or to small or to much work needs to be done. All are too expensive. Not that we can’t afford them just that the thought of spending that much money makes me want to vomit.
Listening: The mocking birds who are in the troughs of claiming territory. a dog barking and general neighborhood noises.
Reading: some free kindle books, some of which are epically bad. One is so bad that I will be reading part of it at my book club. The idea of the story is ok but it is so horribly written that I kept wanting to stop and rewrite sentences and paragraphs so that it read well.
Outing: open house and house tours. house after house after house.
Thinking: Isis and Aset. I have only been introduced to the Kemetic way of things lately Mostly due to this blog. So I have been thinking of names and thinking of the Gods that called me first. Before even the ones from my family heritage it was Isis, Anubis and Thoth. Above all though always Isis. Which of course is why Power of the Witch by Lauri Cabot was so appealing to me oh so many years ago. She talked about worshiping Egyptian Gods. Isis and I already had a relationship by then. I have not been blessed with a great memory so unlike my husband who can recall every conversation he has had since he was 3 I only remember little bits and pieces here and there of my childhood. At any rate by the time I was 6 I know I was Hers.
Cooking: again not cooking like I would like. I made a yummy chicken and brussle sprout baked dish this week as well as a nice potato salad. I am looking forward to making more crockpot meals as the days get hotter and I am at work more.
Feeling: Still super over shopping for houses. rather frustrated by the whole process. frustrated about not cooking or creating and about silly little things at work. maybe I need a nap?
Wishing: my house work would do itself and people would start listening. I have high doubts that either will happen anytime soon.
