Plans: Highland games, UEFA championship…
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
AM Rune: none, it just slipped by…
Outcome: Prior to the Highland Games and Celtic Festival we stopped at a QT for drinks…only to discover the Farmers Market at the Sedgwick County Extension Office: WE HAD TO STOP! We bought a pie, jalapeño cheesy bread, beef jerky and tiny/grape tomatoes: YUMMY!
For its first year the Highland Games and Celtic Festival http://www.wichitahighlandgames.com/ wasn’t bad! While there I discovered the Coast Guard tartan. Every branch of service has one, so it seems. Rekindled acquaintances and had some great conversations with new ones. Audie bought some jewelry and I purchased some wrist guards. We both purchased t-shirts. It was a rather small festival (expected for the first year) but with some GREAT potential! Audie handled it all like a trooper!
Quincy’s http://quincyswichita.com/ for lunch
Back in time for the FC Bayern Mü nchen v FC Internationale Milan match http://www.uefa.com/ on FOX
@ the half Bayern 0:1 Inter
Bayern 0:2 Inter
Bayern dominated possession
Bayern dominated shots on goal
Bayern dominated corners
Breakdown in defense, baby…defense…
What I think is really cool about international play like this is there was a German team against an Italian team and there were English refs: too cool!
Audie actually wanted to go out and do something. We went to the Vagabond just to get out of the house. I had to stop her after two drinks (I had blackberry tea) because she sometimes doesn’t know when to stop on her own. She may think that I am no fun, but neither is she when she drinks too much.
I took Audie over to a friend of hers house to pick up her motorbike. She came back right after sunset. I challenged her on her condition. She swore she hadn’t done anything. She feel asleep shortly thereafter in her chair on the porch…yeah…
New England 0:1 Toronto
San Jose 1:0 Seattle (wooooooooooooooooow)
DC 0:2 Houston
Salt Lake 2:1 Chivas
PM Prayer: Nirdu/Njord:
Nirdu/Njord, god of harbors and seas close to land, Father of Freyr and Freyja, help us to remember the cargoes of wealth that float to our doors daily from the wonderful universe in which we live. Though our misfortunes may rise and fall like the tides, the chance of prosperity, like the eternal sea brimming with fish, is still there. Like the salt-sea spray, awaken us to the possibilities that surround us, so that our nets may be cast wide and return full of life’s gifts. HAIL NIRDU/NJORD!!
PM Rune: Two Runes:
Comments: herein lies yet another example of the day going well, only for it to degenerate to this.
