Plans: Day off, get things done around the house
Note: Early AM investigations into things connected with things lunar. I am so interested creating a calendar focusing on the new moon; that is, the first sliver of moon appearing just after a dark moon. While I was at it I looked into my Moon Sign just for the heluvit. I have a Virgo Moon: http://astrology.about.com/od/moonsigns/p/VirgoMoon.htm
AM Prayer: Friday, we pray to the glorious siblings, Walburga Frouwa/Freyja and Ing Fro/Freyr, and lighting a gold candle (for Freyja’s tears and Freyr’s golden boar, Gullinbursti).
Walburga Frouwa/Freyja, who could not love you? Women as their own inner glory and highest attainment as the self-made woman, men for your beauty, passion and strength. Praise to you for the gift of life, and for the love that makes life worth living. Remind us always that it is the strong who love the best and the most, and that only the mighty can truly be gentle. Fill our lives with passion and lust that we may live our lives to the fullest. HAIL WALBURGA FROUWA/FREYJA!!
Ing Fro/Freyr, you are the god of “Ar”, the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the lusty enlarger of life. When the day to day wears us down, remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. ING FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!

Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Caution is the word for the day…
Meeka for a walk
I pan-roasted the pumpkin seeds I harvested a couple days ago: YUMMERZ!!!!!!
ROFLMFnAO…once again a squirrel was stuck in Meeka’s food bin. I played hel trying to get it out! It was like the damned rodent was happy to spend the rest of it’s little squirrel life inside that thing; it just wasn’t going to come out. I had to pretty much tear off the flapper door in order to force it out the way it go in.
I spent the afternoon doing most of Audie’s Yule shopping. I had a good idea of what I wanted to get her before I even headed out. She’s going to get one gift (either whole or in part) every day of the Twelve Days of Yule! Last year was amazing enough for her but this year will be stupendous, thanks to the 58 hr work week a couple of weeks ago.
Trip to Dollar Tree http://www.dollartree.com/home.jsp for Yule-tree ornaments
Liquor run: beer and mead for me, champagne for Audie
Grabbed a Bacon, Bacon, Bacon pizza from Papa Murphy’s http://www.papamurphys.com/
Audie absolutely loves the pumpkin seeds I prepared this morning! She said they are the best seeds she’s ever tasted; even better than the retail ones!
A bit of the College (Futball) Cup Semifinal on ESPN3.com
N. Carolina v Louisville
I don’t get the Ehwaz (R) for today; but this could be very problematic if a background kind of thing…
Boom! Boom! Out go the lights!
PM Prayer: Nirdu/Njord:
Nirdu/Njord, god of harbors and seas close to land, Father of the Vanir; Freyr and Freyja, help us to remember the cargoes of wealth that float to our doors daily from the wonderful universe in which we live. Though our misfortunes may rise and fall like the tides, the chance of prosperity, like the eternal sea brimming with fish, is still there. Like the salt-sea spray, awaken us to the possibilities that surround us, so that our nets may be cast wide and return full of life’s gifts. HAIL NIRDU/NJORD!!
PM Rune: none
