Plans: Audie to her parent’s, me to my niece's.
AM Prayer: Thursday, we pray to Donar/Thor, and lighting a red candle:
Donar/Thor, thunder forth in our lives. When we would hold back, let us advance. When we would be weak, help us be strong. When we would shun life’s pleasures, sharpen our appetites for that which is lusty and good. Help us grow from strength, and teach us, elder brother, how to throw our own Hammer, and slay the giants who appose our will. HAIL DONAR/THOR!!
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
Pertho (U): Dice cup, the lucky roll of the dice, the presence of positive Wyrd/Orlog (the ordeal of Humankind), the Norns, Urdr, Verdandi and Skuld, the realization of hidden potential, interwoven yet independent Wyrd, good fellowship and happiness, secrets revealed, the Well of Knowledge for growth.
Pertho (R): The presence of negative Wyrd, an unlucky roll of the dice, bad luck, secrets remaining secret, delusions, fantasies, megalomania, outside the collective/individual consciousness, out of touch with reality, negative forces set in motion, the need to deal with uncertainty, unpleasant contractions of birth pains.
Outcome: Early morning shopping excursion. I’ve determined to get a fruit basket for Audie to take to her parents’ house along with her veggie offering, and I’m taking a fall-isch centerpiece coupled with a tossed salad to my niece’s. OMGs the fruit basket ended up being HUGE for a $25 basket; of course, it all comes down to knowing the guys in the produce section as I world with them years ago. They no doubt padded it a bit. The salad I made turned out to be one of my best! As I dropped Audie off at her parents’ I took in the fruit basket. I left there to head out to my niece’s. I had an excellent time with my niece, her husband, my sister-in-law, and her brother, Frank. My great nephew had both of his favorite uncles there, but once frank left I was the total focus of my great-nephew’s attention. He is such an absolute blast! I REALLY LOVE MY GREAT NEPHEW! He’s going to grow up to be an amazing man, no doubt! I left there to pick up Audie who was playing Scrabble with her parents and brother. Audie and I may have had to go to separate Thanksgiving Day festivities but we did just fine!
Once home, it didn’t take Audie ;long to go to bed!
I would say the luck was rolling today!
Audie’s step-mom called later in the evening thanking us (really it was MY idea) for the fruit basket and to say how enjoyable Audie was; like she was her old self!
Luck be a lady tonight!
Ya know, looking back, I can see how Pertho could have very easily played out in either position depending on how other situations played out!
Too much food = BOOM, BOOM; OUT GO THE LIGHTS!
PM Prayer: All you gods and goddesses bless and keep your Holy Folk. From the cold shadows of the glaciers to the colder shadows of space, always, we have been your people. Guide and guard your North folk as you did in ages past. Wodan/Odin, give wisdom and craft to wits shaped by ice and fire that our foes be foxed. Donar/Thor, give us strength and the will to use it. Ing Fro/Freyr and Frouwa/Freyja, give full wombs so that bodies will be found for the souls of heroes. Let your Northern Folk grow in number and in power, so that our kind may live, love, survive and thrive, not just today, not for a millennium, but for ever and ever!
