You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Rain for the next week?


I was hoping the Autumnal Equinox would be bright sunny and warm. Oh well.

Just sent out the invitations for my daughter's baby shower. Even though the RSVP date is Oct. 12, I am sitting here hoping the phone will ring, or that even one item she put on her registry is purchased. So far nothing yet.

Have to find another way to spend my day without thinking about all of this. Let's see . . . knitting project. Always a good choice. :)

Knitting project happiness . . .

Is there any relief and satisfaction greater than figuring out a knitting pattern that you've been working on for three days. Just couldn't figure out where I was going wrong. Finally got it! HA!

Another Friday evening . . .

S. O. Sh**.

AA says I shouldn't say anything, but its hard when I see the pizza I spent time prepping and cooking with loving care plopped hither and thither across the floor and furniture. "Hey! Please don't take that into the bedroom to eat! It's bad enough cleaning it up off the floor out here!"

I didn't do well as an AA spouse tonight. Oh well, there's always next week. :/

The twins . . .

Daughter just text'd from the Dr's office. We have twin boys! Oh my!

Oh! Friday evenings!

Just sent husband to take a nap.

Granted he works hard all week. He's on the road 8 hours a day delivering all over Eastern Massachusetts. He gets home on Friday night, has a few beers (don't know if he had any nips on the way), and within an hour he's falling asleep with a plate of food in his hand. Incoherent, all composure lost.

Good night sweet prince!

Here's something cheery!

Yesterday's harvest from my community garden plot:

My Kitties

I have had all three of my cats to the vet's recently and all have debilitating conditions.

My 13 1/2 yr old, Malcolm, has a mass in his lung (he gets a shot to reduce inflammation), my 11 yr old, Luna, has a heart murmur that will result in some very undignified physical problems, and my 9 yr old, Rolf, has kidney stones and is having trouble peeing.

All extended remedies will wipe me out financially, not to mention put the animals through some very unpleasant, stressful procedures.

All I can afford is to humanely euthanize each one when as their time comes. I will miss all of them, but am comforted knowing that this is something we CAN do for the animals when their pain is great.


Time to post something . . .

Thanks for the nudge, Michael.

Very busy, sleeping a lot.

This past weeks boasts:

the announcement there will be a new addition to the family. This will be my third grandchild. I hope for good health and good fortune;

a new washing machine and refrigerator, both lost power within days of each other (thanks hubby!);

a raise and rather substantial bonus for my son. Now he can afford a newer car.;

my community garden is producing tomato and broccoli. Now to keep that little bunny out. He likes to hide beneath the rhubarb in the next plot. Very cute. :);

and last, but not least, my granddaughter's dance recital is tomorrow afternoon!

Oh forgot to mention, Tornadoes in Massachusetts! F3! Small stuff, I know, compared to the devastation in other parts of the country. This is a new thing for this neck of the woods. EEEK!

I'm sad today . .

I had a dream about one of the horses I met at the MSPCA farm while volunteering. His face was so vivid that I immediately went to their website in the morning and looked for him, but he wasn't there. An email and phone call just an hour ago confirmed that he had indeed been put down due to an old hip injury that was bothering him. He was having trouble walking from the barn to his paddock and back again, the medication needed to comfort him would destroy his inner organs, so they euthanized him.

Here's to you Rocky! Thanks for visiting me. I am glad to have had the honor of meeting you and leading you out for your turnout.
