Plans: Audie to CSL, study
A.M. Prayer: Saturday, normally attributed to the fertility goddess, Saeter, we pray to Sibba/Sif, lighting a green candle (for fertility):
Sibba/Sif let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let me see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let me see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba/Sif, that we may do our work in the world. HAIL SIBBA/SIF!!
Born of Fire, born of ice,
Life is lived at such a price.
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: We are both winners in our loosing ways and are reaping the harvest of our efforts! Yesterday at the VA’s fat man class at the weigh-in I noticed I have lost 5 lbs. Today at Audie’s CSL appointment discovered at her weigh-in that she has lost 7 lbs!
While Audie was at CSL I started playing with the recently purchased trimmer/edger. OMGs this thing is a weed killer! Last year’s was a 5 AMP and it died an ugly death, so I had to by another one this year. It’s a 7 AMP monster! Audie wanted to play with it too and at made short work of edging the yard; well, at least the front yard.
Merle’s for lunch: Audie’s treat…
Finished cleaning up after the monster trimmer: it sure was good about throwing stuff all over!
Audie was in the mood for clothes with which to use on the St Louis trip. We went to the consignment shop where she has a few things. She was delightfully surprised to see that she so $70+ of stuff. She spent almost all of it. It amazes me how she is so willing to get rid of clothes on consignment but equally ready to buy more clothes from consignment. Nonetheless, it’s her harvest and her reward! She really has good taste in clothes and knows what looks good one her. I came out with a thermos and a Huckleberry Finn book.

Study…depression…I just know I’m not doing that well in these classes; was at one time, not any more, and it’s difficult to study: it almost seems pointless…sad, 10+ years ago at WSU I did very well…it seems that the health professions take a different kind of smart-ness…maybe I’m just not smart enough for the health profession…this is a good example of reaping a bad harvest due to a wrong action. I’m just very disappointed in myself. There is no one else to blame, really, but me.
P.M. Prayer: Era/Eir:
Era/Eir, whose loving hands and sweet breath brings healing and health, PRAISE YOUR NAME AMONGST NORTH-FOLK! We thank you for your gentle caress, your soft ministrations and your care. When stress, strains, aches and pains plague is, you come with your lithe figure and flowing hair to ease our distress. Eir, goddess holy and wise, we honor you. HAIL ERA/EIR!!
P.M. Rune: none
