What Â a Â very Â interesting Â Summer Â Solstice Â Day Â itâ€™s been! The bad first, then the good.
Lots of wild energies, Â including Â another Â theft Â from inside my front yard, which explains why Grendelâ€™s been living up to his name Â recently, Â oh he of the ferocious barks. Iâ€™ve lived in the same house for almost 13 years and Â now Â two Â thefts Â of Â multiple Â heavy objects Â taken Â in broad daylight from a part of Â the yard that can be seen only from up close. I didnâ€™t have time to invite the police back a second Â time, but itâ€™s odd that Iâ€™m havingÂ these problems only since my neighbors have been having con- tractors Â practically Â living Â atÂ their Â home Â to Â refurbish Â it. These items werenâ€™t Â taken Â by some Â kid on bikeâ€”they were hauled out in a truck.
On the up side, the contractors have finally stopped blocking my Â mailbox Â (and hence Â incoming Â checks Â and outgoing payments) after I offered to have their vehicles towed for the fifth time in a week if I came home at lunch and surprised them there again. And to think how worried I was that my roofers might upset my neighbors!
If I catch the culprit, I will prosecuteâ€”I Â canâ€™t stand for people to steal from me, particularly when I give away so many things when simply asked. Or did. Thatâ€™s coming to an end, I believe.
And then there was the kids locking themselves out of the house. Â Maybe Â Iâ€™ll see aboutÂ having Â microchips implanted in their necks….
And then things at the office ground to a halt so instead of being grateful for a reprieve, I stupidly asked my boss for more work while I waited on something to break loose and whoosh! Iâ€™m swamped again…voila!
But itâ€™s been an extremely productive day in other regards. I canâ€™t believe how many projects Iâ€™m getting out the door to the printerâ€™s this week.
By Sunday night, I suspect Iâ€™ll have at least 6 books there and waiting to be printed before Mercury goes retrograde.
The difference in my productivity? My summer hireâ€” Shannon. Sheâ€™s marvelous and creative and very focused on getting the job done. Iâ€™m so proud of her.
And then Harriet and AngelSu told me about some fantastic hypnotherapy training and…it looks like itâ€™s mine to do!
And then Â thereâ€™s Â the Â other Â very Â unusual Â thing Â to- day…something Â I thought Â I had lost came back to me. Not that I have it back yet, but itâ€™s on its way to me now. And I feel terribly blessed that it is.
