Plans: up early for the EPL (English Premier League) live on ESPN2, play it by ear but gotta study
NOTE: 6:30 AM, Everton @ Liverpool: Everton is one of the two teams I support in the EPL, Fulham being the other. Both are because of the Amerikans on their teams: Landon Donavan (from the LA Galaxy and the USA Men’s National team) on loan with Everton FC and Clint Dempsey (formerly of the New England Revolution and currently on the USA Men’s National Team) permanent party on Fulham FC.
Everton 0:1 Liverpool (DAMN!)
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
A.M. Rune: Two Runes:
Outcome: EXCELLENT! The ancestors AND Thor are both smiling!
Audie hasn’t done the plasma thing for six weeks as she has been building up her iron level. She was successful at that but now her blood pressure is up and it would go back down. I think she wants to try it again tomorrow.
After plasma I took Audie out to McDs for lunch: hey, it was her idea. The plasma place is out east a bit and I started heading west for McDs. She was so funny as she tried to figure out where we were going. She finally realized (a bit perturbed maybe) we were going to the 21st and Ridge McDs. It turned out to be a very good move. For one thing I was able to talk to some very good customers of mine when I was there. For another thing I met a fellow Heathen and we struck up a good conversation; so much so we exchanged contact information. I think we were both surprised to discover each other; even more so to find another active Heathen presence here in River City. It’s a great day to be a Heathen.
Now I know why the ancestors and Thor are smiling!
WOW! Power outage last night: Audie and I went out for a walk to see the residual effects. It seemed to cover about a 12-block area. We sat in the candlelight sharing conversation.
P.M. Prayer: Eger und Rahana/Aegir and Ran:
Eger und Rahana/Aegir and Ran, keeper of the deep hall at ocean’s bottom, host to the drowned and the sea lost. Your dwelling might be thought sad and gloomy, but you are known to be kind and hospitable ale givers. In your goodness then, cheer us when waves of misfortune pound our life’s fragile boats to the bottom. For even at the bottom, there is warmth, cheer and hope. Be our assurance and our inspiration to strive on despite the swells and swirls of fate. HAIL AEGIR AND RAN/EGER UND RHANA!!
P.M. Rune: none
