A fifth I know: when I see, by foes shot,
speeding a shaft through the host,
flies it never so strongly I still can stay it,
if I get but a glimpse of its flight
Outcome: Inner stability (Eihwaz) comes knowing I’m on the right track(Rit)!
Contacted VA for annual physical
Contacted Workforce Center TAA rep about my unemployment dilemma
I TIRED to contact the unemployment office in an effort to set them straight. I was on hold for more than an hour and a half only to gave up to get on with my day.
Toby did exceptionally well on his mid-morning, 1-mile walk. At one point the was getting a bit too far ahead so I called him to slow up. He slowed down but kept going. A second time I called him to wait but he kept going. Then I called him back to me and he came around the corner looking like a goof. I laughed so hard. A couple of other times he stopped and turned around looking like the same goof. GODS he’s so funny when he wants to be.
Watered the baby trees around the Wîhstat and the transplanted Iris’.

I participated in early voting, but there was a bit of an incident at the poling place. I walk into the polling place and there is a lady standing RIGHT THERE IN THE POLLING ROOM wearing an “Obama Gone” t-shirt. It didn’t exactly have the word “Obama” but the shirt had the symbol for Obama’s campaign and the word “Gone” underneath. I brought it to the attention of the ladies at the check-in table and they directed me to the head-hauncho. I brought this to her attention and she blew me off saying “Well, we were just talking and I didn’t notice”. To myself I thought, DIDN’T NOTICE? She’s electioneering right in her in front of you and you didn’t notice? Returning to the tables I told the ladies the election commissioner is going to hear from me. When I got home I immediately called the election office and told them what happened. I also told them there were no signs about ‘no electioneering within X feet (whatever the distance is) of this polling place‘.
The election office returned my call to let me know that everything has been handled. I expressed my appreciation for their diligence.
Yes, this situation was stressful (Eihwaz) but I had to do the right thing (Rit).
Awwwwwwww…brother came over for a visit. His required help has been put-off until tomorrow.
Man, I’m glad I had the foresight to make a to-do list for today, otherwise I might not have gotten all done that needed to be done.
86F/30C…EIGHTY-SIX DEGREES IN EARLY NOVEMBER…AND DRY! WTF? This doesn’t bode well for a good winter here in Oz. Are we cursed to have another nonexistent winter this year?
I just love it when Essie snuggles up to Toby. It warms the cockles of my little pea-picking heart. Essie practically had her face all up into Toby’s business but she didn’t care. Evidently neither did Toby. It was so cute. I wish I had a camera in every room to catch these shots.
