NOTE: OMGs! I went to let Meeka outside at 4:30AM and there was a skunk on the back stoop getting kibble from her feeder. She was on it like a FLASH. I called her off but she went back to it a second time and I called her off again. By this time the skunk’s tail was high in the air and the stench was even higher! I don’t THINK it made its was under the house; hopefully it went on thru the space in the fence, but wherever it went it certainly left behind its calling card. The stench even permeated the house.
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!!

Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Yeah, I’m so urban born and urban bred when it comes to dealing with things like skunks and possums; both have been in the yard. This skunk thing though…WHEW! Meeka was only doing what Meeka does; I cant get mad at her for doing what comes naturally.
I sat out morning class. I started yank brush off the pile in my back yard in an effort to make sure the skunk hadn’t made a nest in it.
I had a word with the vet and he said since she’s been recently vaccinated not to worry about the obvious scratch on her snout. He suggested I scrub Meeka with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Meeka didn’t like it all that much; hel, I even brushed her teeth.
MY YULE TUNIC ARRIVED TODAY: BEAUTIFUL! I have long enjoyed the red/green color combination of the season of Yule.
I am totally in the dark as to what to do now. I think I keep smelling that skunky aroma in the house but Audie swears she doesn’t.
Haircut…my way…military short!
While out I picked up some dryer sheets to put behind fans and in the window A/C to try to make this damn place smell a bit better.
I attended afternoon class. Now we’re getting into specific functions of an x-ray machine. After being up since 430AM I almost…no, DID fall asleep for just a bit in class.
Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain, beautiful, long overdue rain!
Once again Audie has been out of it all day…she’s just not getting any better to any consistency.
Hmmmmmmmm…Meeka seems to smell better. Maybe I did something right.
PM Prayer: The Norns:
The Norns all three are present at birth
To weave our Fate from merriment to dearth.
Urd, Verdandi and Skuld, the dark queens renowned;
Glorious ladies ‘neath the Tree, work your mysteries in us now.
That which “was” we clearly see.
That which “is” formed now in our deeds.
That which “will be”, will yet be; but cannot see.
We celebrate the Norns, the Ladies Three, for eternity.
PM Rune: eh, let it be…
