Good Wednesday Morning, My Loves! I Hope You Are Having A Very Blessed Day!

I hope everyone is having a super, fantastic Wednesday. I apologize for yesterday. But yesterday wasn’t a very good day for me. My blood pressure sort of went crazy (after visiting two doctors, whose wouldn’t, lol!). I use to take blood pressure medicine off and on. Mostly off because after being on it awhile my pressure bottoms out.  Then if I want to stand up straight I have to stop it. Last night I got tired of fighting it and ate the hell out of some cayenne peppers 😦 ! You talking about a hot momma, but they did take care of the blood pressure. I am normal today, well what’s normal for me! Right!

You might be wondering why the horrible spider as a graphic. Well he plays into my blood pressure ordeal. Several years ago, I almost lost my leg to a bunch of recluse spiders. The pretty thing above is not a recluse but a writing spider. They will kill the recluse and keep it away. The first year I had one show up it started out in my corner on my porch. I would talk to it as I was unlocking the door. A few weeks later, I guess the spider decided he wanted to be friends. I opened the door and there he was right in the middle of this grapevine wreath I have hanging. I holler because I didn’t expect him to be that close and you have to admit they are a little frightening. My husband heard me, he came running. He was going to kill it. I told him, “hell no, he wasn’t,” and hand over the broom immediately. He gave me the broom. Believe it or not, I put the tip of the broom up to his web and he walked right on it. It didn’t dawn on me till afterwards what if he had kept on walking (I probably would have been changing drawers!).  Anyway to cut this story short, I have bushes around the porch where I originally placed this one. I now have eight of them adorning those bushes. The recluse are gone. Now I have to figure out if these guys will do anything about wolf spiders. Cause I honestly believe I got a bite from a wolf spider. That’s the only time my blood pressure goes haywire when I get bit by something poisonous. Knowing my luck, the wolf spiders are smart enough to avoid my jolly little army of writing spiders. I must add these spiders also keep noisy neighbors at bay! Hmm, perhaps I use start a market on writing spiders! Any takers?

Have a great one, my sweets!

Luv & Hugs,

Your Animal Spirit for Sept. 20th is The Butterfly

Your Animal Spirit for Today
September 20, 2013

Butterfly

Beautiful butterfly has fluttered into your reading to remind you of the powerful transformational energies at work in your life. If something important seems to be stagnating, know that transformation is at work just below the surface—and just like the caterpillar, the “cocooned” situation you’re fretting about is about to be freed.

Dragonfly

Dragonfly eggs are laid within their territory near the water. Once hatched, these nymphs will live nearly two years on the bottom of streams and ponds. As they reach adulthood an amazing thing occurs, they transform into dragonflies and ascend to the air. In the air, they travel with wings that sparkle with spectacular colors by reflecting and refracting light and other colors. No insect or bird can maneuver as well as a dragonfly. Flying up to 30 mph, they will twist, turn, move up and down, fly backwards, even change directions instantaneously and still will spot movement 40 feet away.
The power of Dragonfly lies in its ability to see around things by looking from different angles. Using its ability to transform colors and lights by reflecting and refracting them, Dragonfly shows us that life, like light, can bend, shift, and adapt in various ways, making life’s appearance never be what it appears to be. Dragonfly’s magic shows us to see through life’s illusions and find our true vision. It calls us to transform within our lives and reminds us to feel deeply so we will have the compassion necessary to help ourselves and others.

Happy and Glorious Saturday to All!

I hope everyone is having a beautiful Saturday so far.  I fell asleep in the floor last night and woke up this morning at 3:00 a.m., to Hitler invading Russia.  Great to wake up to early, early on your Saturday morning. I got up when to wash dishes and here comes hubby wanting to know if there is any coffee made. Of course, seeing all the violence on TV, I wanted to pop him on the head with the coffee pot. Then I got to thinking coffee, not a bad idea. So I made us a pot, rather me a pot. He had one cup and went back to bed. Dawn was beginning to crack, so I did what I love to do. Take my coffee outside, curl up on my bench and watch the beautiful Sun come up. Curling up wasn’t in the picture this morning. Two of the wildcats were already outside waiting on me. The biggest one and the  smallest one and would you believe they were occupying my bench, lol! They wanted to play and love. But out of all of them, the big one is the most hostile. It took me forever to befriend him. Now if there is any of the others out there, forget they don’t come close to me. We played and loved a little bit, then I broke up fights, then I went and got their food. I figured that was the only way I was going to get any peace.

I had noticed when I came back in the house, I had wasted an hour and a half playing with the cats. The sky was beginning to lighten up, so I figured it was a great time to water the garden (since I forgot to last night).  I gathered up my pitchers and flashlight. Now remember I said it was just starting to lighten up, you still couldn’t see that great. I put the garden on the back side of the porch. Turns out it was a pretty smart move. I can stand on the porch and water the garden in cast it is super muddy. I forgot to mention, when I was digging this spot up the ground was just so soft and it took no strength what so ever to dig it up. This is very, very unusual for the ground around here. I didn’t think anything about it, I was just thrilled I didn’t have to kill myself. The day I dug up the garden, I went into to get a glass of ice water. When I came back I found out why the ground was so easy to dig, I was digging in a wolf spider’s nest. It was almost down right funny, I went to observe my handy work and there in the middle of the dirt had to be the grandpa of all wolf spiders. He was huge. I figured after I watered the ground some more, they would leave. I brought the hose around the house and started watering. Oh brother, did I get a reaction out of that spider. He jumped at me. Needless to say, I had forgotten they could jump and it scared the crap out of me. Now back to this morning, I had my flashlight and was up on the porch. I noticed one of my plants had been moved. Miss Perfectionist couldn’t stand that. She had to go and put it back in its place. I had totally forgot about the spiders. I pulled the plant up and move it over just a little bit. I wasn’t paying attention but I had opened the spider’s hole back up. I had just stood up and the evil spider jumped on my foot. I am sure I woke up every neighbor in a five-mile radius. I screamed a dirty word while dancing around on one foot. I never did think I was going to get that damn spider off of my foot. Finally after throwing my foot out-of-place, I got the spider off of me. Thank the Goddess he didn’t bite me. I can do some of the stupidest things at times. Please use this as a what not to guide when gardening.

Beware of soft dirty. (It is a mean, cruel joke played on you by some creature or critter)

If your plants get up and move on their own. (Leave them alone, the plant will be happier and so will you)

Never garden by flashlight. ( This should be a no boner)

If you find a spider of any kind in your garden, leave him be and maybe he will do the same. (If not, just give him a good drink of water and a shower. Hopefully the shower will do him in, lol!)
