Plans: THREE DAYS OFF!
NOTE: After yesterday’s fiasco health-wise I’m taking it very easy this morning; little or no talking, everything I can do to keep from barfing/hiccupping/coughing. So far so good.
normally attributed to the (rather obscure) fertility goddess, Saeter (more correctly Saturn), we pray to Sibba/Sif and to Fro/Freyr, lighting green candles (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 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!!
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, Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!

…..methinks I’m hooked on their sushi!
I guess today has been my day to cook.
*Breakfast: scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon, potatoes w/onions for me, toast w/apricot preserves, juice, milk
*Dinner: home made tacos (beef mixed w/onions and seasoning, diced tomatoes,
shredded lettuce and cheese) on those stand-up taco shells
worked pretty well! Audie said I’ve been holding out on her: LOL!
I don’t suck at cooking; really I don’t.
This is the first day I’ve felt human since Friday of last week. My efforts to be well are paying off though not out of the woods yet. I can feel the hiccups just waiting to take hold but I wont let ‘em! Every cough is closely monitored and a cup of tea close at hand to fend off any negative throat reaction,
A very cautious, early evening walk with Meeka…

It’s been very touch-and-go with the hiccups late this evening. They tried to rear their ugly head twice but I was able to fend them off with continued medication, controlled breathing couple that with timely swallowing: WHEW! At least things have been reduced to that. Reduced coughing, almost void of hiccups, no regurgitation or irritation: PERFEKT! Today has been a very good day of improvement (Jera)!
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!!
