Happy Full Moon in Libra
The night sky is beautiful out there tonight. Officially full about 45 mins ago. Some of you would scoff at my suggestion that things can
get a little "loony" during the lunar fullness ... but we are all salt
water, bloggies, and those ebb and flow of tides within us are not
without their meaningfulness sometimes.
1st day of spring, nearly 10 days ago now, got two phone calls: 1) my
cousin died up north...he was married to his awesome wife 62 yrs;
2) our friend's daughter had her baby in Texas where she went to
help her ... and we heard of it just minutes after it happened laughing
with the newly uncle and grand uncle of little Aidan ... at a pub at
the end of our road. Both in the same day. Sympathy followed by
congratulations. Sorrow followed by joy. Memories followed by new
memories in the making. And we as witness.
I don't know ... will March go out like a Lion? It came in like a Lamb,
so the old story goes. It certainly has cooled down drastically, dang
it! The warmth and sunshine were so welcoming, but then those
early damned mosquitos weren't welcome at all! Bastards! Will it
still snow yet? Hmmmmm!?
Today is the 24th and 17th anniv of my dad and mom's deaths ... and
also their wedding anniversary. I know I've written about them
dying and being buried both on their anniversary. Always the drama
with them! ha! I live in my childhood home, as I've said over and over
boringly...but I honor them with my memories and the good memories
are the best. All in all it's been a peaceful weekend and Monday, and
a Full Moon to boot, just to add to the drama.
Happy Trails, Dana and Josephine ... thank you for marrying and
having me 9 yrs later, your first bundle of joy. I am grateful.
Make some memories out there, Bloggies! Remember your loved ones
in positive lights. Keep smiling and shining on!
Love from your

Last night Jeff worked over 12 hours at his job, when usually it is 7 hrs per night, and tonight who knows? He also has to work tomorrow on Saturday ;o( even though they have a fit if he goes over 40 hrs a week, unless it serves their purpose. He was hoping to have tomorrow off since he will definitely be over 40 hrs...but then, the health insurance premium will be due soon and the bills will always get paid, leaving not so much for fun, play or recreation. We still have good times, though, just sitting across the kitchen table talking together, catching up on how our work day/night went, laughing about all the strange and often funny things that employees can get into (which I won't repeat here). I sometimes record several TV shows so we can watch them together later on (we love Ghost Whisperer and Medium ... and Chuck!) I get a reprieve tonight with nothing of interest to watch or record so I have been reading magazines as the dishes sit in the sink ... sitting out under the McIntosh apple tree at the picnic table with Tuffy coming to visit me and cuffing at me when I bugged him too much (as he gazed excitedly at a nearby rabbit, too lazy to chase it, gladly!) and I thought I'd just reminisce here a little about loving someone ... and dedicating this post to me and my husband ... and all you others out there who are in love, have been in love, will be in love, and especially loving yourselves first and foremost so you know how very worthy you are to be loved in return. Bless you and thank you for sharing your love with me now and again. It is such a breath of fresh air to hear positive stories in the midst of the daily grind of negativity everywhere in the media, etc. I pretty much steer clear of that or of anyone who wants to spread it.
Last night just as I was winding down at work, I inadvertently locked myself out of the office inner door and after realizing the cleaning lady was gone from the building, and delivering a letter down the hall to a psychologist friend, after I told her about my predicament and that I didn't think I could fit thru the receptionist window if I tried to climb through, she offered to come down and climb through for me ... and she's a tiny lady. She came down and climbed through and, wow! that was so nice of her to offer that service! I was able to get my work done and leave on time and have a nice chat with her, and she commended me on my recent "being in control" of my health and eating habits and healing process. I came home last night and went out and picked some pussy willows from our tree (my dad orig planted many yrs ago and we resurrected it) and put them into a beautiful piece of pottery that is hard to explain, but it's very earthy and looks somewhat like an acorn with only a small hole in the top to put flowers, etc. in. I do believe Monday I am going to give that to her for helping me, even though she said it was a "piece of cake" and "no big deal"... it was a big deal to me. I think, anyway ... it is awfully beautiful! ;oD
Well, as you can see, I can ramble on ... it is very fulfilling sometimes to just sit here "talking" to you folks. I feel a sense of peacefulness knowing that we have this connection all around the world ... from the United Kingdom to Singapore to Oregon to Connecticut to Minnesota ... one never knows. BUT! I digress ... I sign off with my dedication to you lovers out there ... go look at yourself in a mirror, hopefully a beautiful mirror, and KNOW that what you see is so good and wondrous and meaningful to me and so many others ... make sure it is all that and more to YOU!
Have a lovely first day of Spring tomorrow. The Vernal Equinox ... hope springs eternal ... and I am, your faithful SisSTAR of the C.O.D.E. (Childless Orphaned Daughter of the Evolution ... resolving to evolve). Whew! That was a long one, eh? ;oD XOXOXOXOXO

I even have a couple little shamrock plants I've tended to for many years now and one is blooming. The purple one will be blooming one of these days, and it has little purple flowers as opposed to the white ones on the green shamrock. So here's to Ireland and here's to being green! And here's to Danny Boy xoxo

Good morning, Bloggies! I am feeling so much better and eagerly awaiting the end of my work day today. Of course, I haven't even made it to work yet as I have a
choice of when I go in ;oD and it's so sunny and beautiful outside, even though there's still plenty of snow and cold it makes it so much nicer to see the sunshine.
I have been meditating on the living room floor nearly every morning in the sun's rays and find it very energizing. A lot different than my old "usual" way of sleeping until 10 am and then checking the dr's messages, rushing around and getting there shortly afterwards. Now I do "leisurely" and I like that ;oD Well, actually I've been quite productive, amazing myself lately, and sleeping well without the aid of anything. Haven't used my asthma inhaler much at all since I've been eating healthy and that will help a lot with the anxiety, insomnia and heart palpitations which were the "norm". But enough of all this crapola!
Today is a beautiful sunny Friday, Bloggies. I am sending out good wishes over the e-waves hoping all of you will have a fantastic weekend in whatever way you choose, with a few surprises (good ones!) thrown in to keep things exciting. Be well and love yourself and one another!
From your SisSTAR
