Paul took my car to the Shambhala center tonight. He has a state car because of travel to court and can’t drive it around town. I forgot to get my bag out of the car before he left.
I need to get started on my Mosaic project, I’ve been putting it off for 8 weeks. The art show opens on the 5th of May so I really need to finish them this weekend. I’m feeling lost because my ipod and nano are in my car down town. All I have is my little pink shuffle. I had plans on cutting glass and getting caught up on my podcasts. I’m building a playlist now for my shuffle but I’m not happy about it. I spent many a hours in my glass studio listening to Roddy Frame’s Surf.
Is there life without iPods? I met Jon for coffee on Tuesday and we were talking about the obsolescence of physical media, tapes, cds etc.
I’m going to start producing Robert Place’s Tarot classes and have to decide on media.
The weekend before last I was really uninspired and thought I might stop podcasting. Paul & I played WOW all weekend. I feel re-interested. Here is what people have said about it lately.
- I finally got an I pod in February and have been working through the Tarot Connection archives. It’s a goldmine of tarot-y goodness!!!
- I’ve been subscribed to The Tarot Connection for a few months now and am always looking forward to new episodes. Nice surprise to be able to hear Umbrae doing this ‘thang on an all ready great podcast!
- This was a fascinating episode to listen to. I learned so much.
- I am listening to a podcast on itunes called the Tarot Connection. I really like it alot because it gives me lots of information and ways to learn both my oracle and is helping me to understand tarot as well..:)
- I’m only halfway through the current podcast from Tarot Connection, episode 35 which discusses the “music of the spheres” in an interview with Tarot author Liz Hazel, but I’m greatly enjoying it. The interview is chock full of more information than I know what to do with.
- If you’re a fan of the Tarot and you don’t have time to read through scores of forum posts, you might really enjoy this format. Podcasts are like radio shows that have been recorded and can be downloaded to your iTunes or iPodder software and listened to at your leisure. I’ve looked online for podcasts that were Tarot-centric, but most… even those that claim to be, rarely fulfill their promise. Leisa ReFalo, who just happens to live pretty close to me, is producing regular podcasts on the Tarot. I’ve listened to a couple and can say, unequivocally, that she’s doing something no one else is doing, and she’s doing it beautifully.
So having a cat is the biggest thing going on right now. I took these pictures for her former foster mom. Here she is taking an afternoon nap in the swanky cat bed.
She woke me up this morning with her hunter call so I would play with the string. She can play tug-o-war with it and carries it around the house. I wasn’t 100% sure she was aware that i’m involved with the string game. Her cat skills are getting better with all of the practice.
It has taken 5 weeks for me to get cat nap privileges. I though cat naps came with the cat.
I took her to a groomers on 4/18. She has long hair and doesn’t shed. I bought 2 brushes an they didn’t do a thing. Turns out a furminator is just the very thing. She came back smelling wonderful. Still smells very good. She was very pleased with the results and wanted every one to feel how good her coat felt.
I was listening to a podcast today and the speaker mentioned the word paisley. Its something I haven’t seen or thought about lately. I had a red paisley skirt in college. The prince song went through my mind. I realized I didn’t know anything about the paisley except what it looks like.
It is a ornate asymmetrical teardrop pattern from Persian (Iranian) but its western name derives from a town in central Scotland.
The paisley design resembles and is consistent with the shape of the Indian and/or European medicinal leech. The paisley design often incorporates pregnant leeches; and a body cavity containing baby leeches
I’ve been under the impression that my cat doesn’t like wet food, she has barely eaten it at all. Its taken about two weeks to get through one can, most of it went down the drain.
Just for kicks, I picked up a couple of very small cans of food from Healthy Pet on my lunch hour. I went there to pick up the very popular purple fake fur blanket for under the bed.
I picked on can that looked like it would be the most wholesome and one based on a super attractive lable. This morning I broke out the Tiki Cat and it didn’t last 5 minutes.
I have been cleaning out my drawers at work and ran across a couple of recipes. Dorothy is a friend of my mothers. I believe I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Becky Lee.
