Plans: back to work 2nd shift
Greetings to you Mano/Manni, silver messenger on high, as you fly silently on your way reflect into our souls the glory of the High Ones that we might aspire to the realms of the gods. Bathe our world in soft brightness, and whisper to our souls of joyous realms beyond our knowing. Mano/Manni let us see the
goodness within us and without us, all the nights and days of our lives. MANO/MANNI, HAIL!!

Advice on how to spend the day

loss of momentum.
gift, a fair exchange between people or gods and the Luck that accompanies it; freely exchanged, contracts, relationships, sometimes sexual, sacrifice, and hospitality, do not take more than we are wiling to give, the voluntary sacrifice of resources.
Audie to plasma
While Audie was at plasma, I created an event on Facebook: national Mead Day.
It was created by some home brewing association:
http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/events/mead-day. I thought it would make a WONDERFUL event, and so far…it has!
Mid-afternoon, getting ready for work, and my event on Facebook for National
Mead Day is falling like this:
25 maybe attending
40 not attending
2,347 yet to reply
(which means that more invitations have been shared among friends than I originally sent out). Not too bad for its first few hours of existence. We see what happens while
I’m at work.
I just now noticed the newspaper bill Audie left on the computer desk. She said not to pay it when I was going to because they were going to make some kind of special offer, and she’s right. I had to slow down (Isa) and make sure this was a gift (Gebo) I could sacrifice. The offer is so good I pulled from the liquid account to pay for a year’s worth of newspaper delivery.
Work went okay. Lay-off notices will go out Wednesday. I still say there’s a good possibility that I will be laid off either directly or bumped. I’m not being pessimistic just realistic. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
Who was it that said, I always expect the worst. When the best happens, I’m delightfully surprised. Both Isa and Gebo are right here!

PM Prayer: The Norns:
The Norns, all three, are present at birth
To weave our Fate from merriment to dearth.
Urd, Verdandi and Skuld, the dark queens renowned;
Glorious ladies ‘neath the Tree, work your mysteries in us now.
That which “was” we clearly see.
That which “is” formed now in our deeds.
That which “will be”, will yet be; but cannot see.
We celebrate the Norns, the Ladies Three, for eternity.
PM Rune: none
