...and where it led

i started off the day by meditating to the sound of crystal bowls for fifteen minutes. from scrubbing the shower on my hands and knees, i not only managed to make the bathroom fit for human habitation once again, but got all my unpacking done and put away. according to the laundry schedule meg created out of desperation one winter, today was towels and rugs day - so i washed not only all the towels (three loads, sorted by color) but managed to do all the bathrugs and the shower curtain as well.

from the bath and bedroom, i proceeded to the kitchen, where the bulk of the work had been done by Beloved while i was gone. he even cleaned out the fridge. all i had to really pay attention to was the floor, where the contractors and the dogs have left their dusty, hairy marks.

and then it was on to the big mess. before i turned to it, i meditated again for another fifteen minutes, answered email, played a bit on cafemom, ate some yogurt, some peanuts and cranberries and a banana. i decided to spend today mostly sorting, and packing. i also swept and vacuumed. the few articles of furniture i dusted, i draped in old tablecloths. i was happy i could move a few things into new places.

i have a tarot class to prepare for tomorrow evening, and i was disappointed by a new brand of glue in my dollhouse. the kitchen floor will have to be peeled up and redone, but except for the trim, most of the rooms are done. i'll post some pics tomorrow.

now it's ham and sweet potatoes and watercress salad for dinner.

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

All in all it seems the path was productive and not without elements of satisfaction, eh?

Hi Annie! I finally gave in to my editors demands and started a blog. I've been dropping a line from here on recent occassion, Linda R. The blog name is other. I'm intrigued by your mention of a tarot class. Are you teaching it or attending as a student? Either way, can you tell me more about the lesson?
