Plans: perhaps yard, study…
AM 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!!

Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Okay, I decided against mowing the yard; it’s been so hot and so dry for so long there is no point in even bothering with it. If I had invested in grass, sure, I would be watering and hence mowing. Since there seems to be mostly weeds anyway (with a smattering of some kind of grass but don’t know what kind it is) there is no need to water and less of a need to mow.
Audie seems to be in a much better mood this morning.
I spent a good part of the morning vacuum sealing winter clothes, uniforms, etc, for storage. Once all that was out of the way and cleared up some closet space Audie took to rearranging closets. See? Audie and I CAN work well together!
The domestic we…
I met this woman online; Facebook specifically. She sent me a message a few days ago saying she was clearing out some stuff and wanted to send some of what she has cleared out to me as a donation to Rheinwood. I graciously accept but had no idea what she had.. The packages came today: OMGs! She sent some real treasures! It was amazing! I just could not believe her kindness.
Great Wall for lunch
Gassed up the buggy; saved .30 per gallon with my gas points from Dillons
I saw my JW buddy working on his yard…IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY! I went to get my edger to help him with his curbing and sidewalk, but the cap to my edger went flying off: DAMN! That certainly didn’t take long. It was too reminiscent of when I tried to help him the last time. I don’t know what it is with his yard…I fully believe it’s possessed.
I had a-hankerin’ for one of those fruit smoothies from McDs http://www.mcdonalds.com/realfruitsmoothies it just sounded so good on a sweltering summer day. On the way I stopped back in at my JW buddy’s house and offered to get him/them one, too. I like the wild berry but he and his wife went with the strawberry/banana. I came back with them and we enjoyed each other’s company.
Mannaz was alive and well all day!

PM Prayer: Heimdall:
HEAR ME HEIMO/HEIMDALL, the genetic link between gods and humankind. Your keen eyes and sharp ears guard the world of the gods. As you stand so alert for the approach of giants, remind us that we must also watch for our own encroaching evil. Let weakness, cowardice, lies and dishonor be barred from the Rainbow Bridge leading to our heart’s abode. Be a model for vigilance, that we may rise to the best that is in us, and someday join the Noble Gods in their shining home. HAIL HEIMO/HEIMDALL!!
