Plans: domestic stuff…
NOTE: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww…a lovely layer of new snow this morning…
NOTE 2: I learned how to insert pics at the rheinwood.weebly.com site so it looks more like the blogs posted to the Facebook page.
Greetings to you Sonne, Lamp of Uuodan/Odin: newly risen! Hail to you who has shown on all our ancestors, who shines on us, and who will shine on our decedents yet unborn. Share with us some of your light, your energy, your power, so that we might better fight our battles and attain our goals. SONNE/SUNNA HAIL!!
Blameless Paltar/Baldr, shining god, let your goodness and your reconciliation smooth our paths on Earth. When our days here are over, light up death’s darkness with the promise of rebirth. Help is to avoid evil, and seek the good. Inspired by you, we will keep our reputations spotless that our lives be proclaimed a victory of the Spirit, and out leaving this life a tragedy. PALTAR/BALDR HAIL!
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: I don’t get it…problems are elsewhere…not here
Cleared the fresh snow form the patio, porch and driveway. It was so dry it was sweep-able
Took down Yule decorations and stored them in the shed…maybe the ancestors are upset about that: who knows? I always leave a bit of Yule up all year to help out my mood throughout the year. I always keep my home colors (wine and forest green) and some kind of holly around in places.
I took a few pieces of Audie’s fresh apple cake over to my sister-in-laws house for her, my niece and my niece’s husband. Methinks it was well received.
Minnesota Vikings v NY Giants; one of the ONLY Amerikan football rivalries in which I am personally interested because I look at it like a modern expression of our lore. Vikings kicked Giant ass: 44-7!
Accompanying the winter weather of late we have had some beautiful gray skies: very little sun J
Audie is in another of her cooking modes. She made some turkey and egg noodles: YUMMY!
I would say we’re pretty homey and holed up for the evening.
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
Comments: cared for animals, Meeka inside (baby it’s cold OUTSIDE)
