Just Talking

So far so good, I'm not 100 % yet but I am back to 75% of my norm in terms of pain and energy, as usual I just needed a few days rest

Are their nerves in the breasts? I guess there must be but I never noticed any sensation there. Anyway I woke up this morning with the queerest pain in my right breast. Even the slightest contact sent a sharp pain from the top to the nipple. Entirely new pain for me. It is beyond annoying to find out just how many ways my body can hurt. I miss the days when I was basically numb everywhere.

Onward into the day. My morning walk is complete, the gate is open and I am enjoying my morning coffee. I like having a donation box nearby, I can give away stuff much easier and I have found a couple of things I've been wanting including some decent chairs. Today I found a couple of those hangers that you can store more than one thing on. I've been wanting to try one of these for awhile.

I think the weather is changing again as my sinuses are acting up, more pain for me to figure into my day. I really did not set out to complain about my physical self today. Guess I just needed to complain a little.

I've set up candles and totems on my altar including a spirit lamp which is a beginning though I still have a lot of other things to go on it.  Including some things I need to make or alter to fit including representatives of Mother Earth and Father Sun.

The final bat box is almost finished needing only an eye painted on and the Clearcoat applied. The others were challenging but this one, (Hufflepuff), gave me a difficult time. The colours were easy but that badger took me a few days to figure out. Like I said it is almost done.

I have not decided what to do next as the landlady bought a welcome sign so now I don't need to make one. I am thinking about doing one for my door anyway but am not entirely sure yet.

The inventory of the shelf is almost complete just the fabric and yarn to do. Oh and all the stuff that is on the top. After that is catalogued I will be tackling the area around my desk which is a desk, a table, a file cabinet and a buried chair.

Most of the keepers will be going into the boxes but the stuff in the drawers will be sorted and redistributed. I expect to get rid of a lot of the duplicates but it is still a lot of little things like ink, stamps and drawing tools and I want to make a list that tells me exactly what stamps I have and how many of each of the drawing tools ie 8 x erasable colouring pencils.

On and on. Now I need my coffee and a book to get me energized to do the last row on the shelf.

Live, Love, Laugh

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Eat Breakfast like a King

That is the first line of a poem that I heard long ago. I am not sure who wrote it or even if I am quoting it right.

If a (wo)man would eat
Breakfast like a king
Lunch like a prince
Dinner as a pauper
Such a (wo)man would be
Healthy, wealthy and wise

I think a prince is supposed to refer to the storekeepers and such who ate three course instead of the 10- 12 courses a king would have at that time. I think it was written in the 1500's

After a little research I found that it was made popular by Adelle Davis in her weight loss book "Lets Get Well", but she only used "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper". I know I have seen that quote as written above elsewhere but danged if I can remember it now. All good sound advice considering she wrote that book in 1965

What it basically says is eat a large meal when you break your fast in the morning, a mid-size lunch and a tiny supper and you will become healthy, rich and smart.

Today I thought …
