Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Rain, eh? Here in the Great White North we've gone one better: snow! Yep, last night the wind howled and prowled around, and about 9 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time, the snowstorm hit! I watched from my cozy bed where Fred Cat and I were sharing a wonderful mystery, Full Dark House by Christopher Fowler.

Mind you, this morning the sky is clearing; the streets are merely wet (not icy, which is always a worry), and it'll likely melt completely by the sunset...

We have rain! Rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain rain.

The last time it rained around here was in early August. There has been no water in Jacob's Gut for a week now. When I walked into my yard, sand sifted into my shoes as if I were at the beach. We lost 2/3rds the corn crop. Barley hasn't even poked its wee tips above the ground yet. This has been baaaad and we aren't even in the worst hit part of the state.

But yesterday it rained. Hard. And last night it rained. More. And there are 2 more grey days in the weather dot com guys' callendar.

And there is a certain tension that has eased out of my shoulders – a bracing I'd been doing as my subconcious prepared for worse yet to come – downed trees, dried up wells, the sort of things that cause permanent damage – not just a year of belt tightening.

Let us all give up a prayer of thanks, because this is really something to be thankful for.

Something else I'm thankful for is this:

Paint is still tacky but I'll begin stocking those beautiful empty shelves on Saturday.

In other news of a heavenly nature, Ms.Horoscope says:

When flowing emotions are running at full power, magnetic attraction is at its peak.Strong flowing feelings magnetically attract changes in matter.

Flowing emotions attract a sympathetic reality out ofinfinite potentialities and this manifests in the physical world.

During the full moon, flowing emotions are at their most powerful,so manifesting changes on the physical plane is much easier at this time.

Somehow, this seems to deserve something more than a visit to the dentist – which is what I have on the agenda today. That, and doing something to fix errors I made in the library's Quickbook. That was last week and it was truly a Mercury in retrograde crash-up.

Oh dear. She continues in Virgo-specific language to say:

This cycle is also about cash, property and possessions. On the one hand, you do need to be extra careful in all financial transactions as there is extra chance for confusion. On the other, most positively, it's a very good time to rethink your finances and some will even see money they've been waiting for finally making its way into their bank account.

So, heads up, my virgo sisters ...

The key with Mercury retrograde is always to let the cycle unfold without making any major decisions, if you can. Mercury retrograde usually leads to more information being sent your way so it's best to way and see what transpires before you act. Use this time to contemplate what might be.

Hmmmm. A studio might be. Early retirement? Permanent weight loss? hmmm. many things might be. Hope all of them are good - for me. For you.
