Plans: work 2nd shift
NOTE: Weeeeeeell…Audie was home before I crawled out of bed; hope everything’s okay.
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 us see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let us 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!!
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
Berkana (U): The feminine, Nerthus, birth processes, rejuvenation, growth, nurturing, mature wisdom, recuperation, purification, the birch tree, birth, becoming, life changes, the Earth Mother, the kind Mother, Frija/Frigga at her most Motherly, healing, bringing into being, a significant life passage.
Berkana (R): Problems with relating to the feminine, the maternal influence
and the feminine mysteries, void of growth and caring, deceit, degradation,
immaturity, deterioration, contamination, needlessly clinging, tough love
Mothering, in need of Mothering, missing/ignoring a significant life
Outcome: Hail Frigga; my goddess!
I can see house this could play out early in the day. Not knowing what Audie did all last night I will walk a delicate Berkana line until I know for sure.
I think Audie is okay.
Took the new camping gear (Coleman Instant Tent and Coleman Grill w/ stove
attachments) out to the shed; Jeez that shit is heavy!
I’m still absolutely amazed that Audie sits down and
ENJOYS watching the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Hehe…this could be a serious
life-changing thing! I’m definitely going to nurture this one as far as I can.
Together we watched England v France. I had to go to work just was they had to
go into extra time because it was 1:1 at the end of regulation.
This had to be THE FUCKING HOTTEST day yet. Temps reached 107 and I had to
work in the M-r F-r. It was horrible. On the way home (10PM) temps were still
in the mid-90s: JsMrFnChst! Over the dinner break work served up a boxed lunch
in the form of a turkey with lettuce and cheese, chips, apple and cookies. It
wasn’t horrible. Where’s my motherly hug when I need it?
WOW! The women’s match between England and France went scoreless after
extended time; then into a PSO (Penalty Shoot Out) which France won 4:3 WOW!
OMGs! Germany is out?
This has been MUCH BETTER than I ever imagined!
Here’s how things stand:
MLS matches http://www.mlssoccer.com/
Sporting KC 1:1 Chivas (not bad, SKC, but a win is needed!)
NY 0:1 DC (WOW!)
Houston 2:0 Toronto (not a good year for the Red Patch Boys)
Salt Lake 2:0 Dallas
Colorado 2:1 Vancouver
LA 2:1 Chicago
San Jose 0:0 Philly
PM Prayer: Wuldar/Ullr:
Wuldar/Ullr, god of ski and bow, you glide through the snow-clad forests bringing death to game and life to your people. Remind us that life feeds on life, and that the beauty of the prey is formed generation after generation by the culling ferocity of the predator. Let your Yew-bow be the great World-Yew under another guise, so that through the spirit of the hunter, we may climb its branched to ever higher levels of awareness. HAIL WULDAR/ULLR!!
PM Rune: none
