Back To School (and maybe back to normal)

You know, when I went to read my Oracle Cards this morning, I didn’t really realize just how perfect it would apply for all of 2020. The card I pulled was Shakti reversed, and the explanation for what that meant was this: “Sometimes people and situations come into your life as the kind of change agents that turn your life upside down.”

It was supported by Lilith reversed as the Shadow Card (the one on the bottom of the deck, you know, the one you subconsciously put down at the bottom because you are trying to hide it from yourself). It suggests that I fear being truly Independent and that I am drawn to other people’s chaos so that (basically) I don’t have to deal with my own stuff.

Weekend Coffee Share: Moving Day

Hello to all my coffee share peeps! I almost missed this week, because I already have no idea what day of the week it is at any given moment. Normally it takes a little longer into the summer for me to lose track of days, but the events of this year and the last few weeks especially has expedited the summer time-confusion.

This week, similar to last week, has been a bit hectic and disheveled. At least, that’s how I feel… whether or not the events of the week actually reflect that, I guess we’ll see.

Weekend Coffee Share: Whirlwind Week

Hello Coffee Share Peeps! I’d offer you coffee, but it would be hospital coffee, so I can’t promise it’s any good. I’m keeping my father company this weekend, which has been a big part of this week in general. His room has a nice big window, and while the view isn’t great, it doesn’t feel as dour as most hospital rooms I’ve seen.

He’s napping after a hard day of physical therapy, so I’ve got a minute to chat and catch up on everyone’s week. So come on in, sit down, and let’s chit chat… quietly.

Weekend Coffee Share: Lots of Family Time…

Well hello Coffee Share peeps! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been around. Starting at a new school in a new district when I was already going through some things kept me away.

But I’m back!

We’ve got loads to catch up on, so grab a cup of tea or coffee, I’ll bring the strawberry cheesecake pie I made for Beltane, and let’s spill the T.

#DSFWeeklyRewind: A new year begins.

Well hello there, Weekly Rewinders! I’m running a little late this weekend. Today has been an interesting day, so as we rewind, we might as well work our way backwards.

Also, as part of my new outlook for this blog (and, well, this whole year, actually) I’ve made a playlist. I tried to keep it really positive and relatively new. Anything that is older is something that I absolutely love, or makes me feel particularly happy or at peace.

Those are the emotional goals for this year: happy and at peace. The rest of the rewind follows the playlist below. It’s not in any particular order, so hit shuffle and enjoy!
