What?? Rob Ford – again???Rob-Ford

The now infamously famous mayor of Toronto, that, according to his own words, smoked crack cocaine in a drunken stupor??!!??This is the 3rd time this month that I pulled him

= the 9 of Cups that is…..

9 of Cups


I get it!

I get the message:

Live a little, have a little fun….

Fun is good, but any type of booze gives me a nasty migraine, as does cheap chocolate and the cheese, that I would love to have with the wine….

So I have other things to “indulge” myself with:

Books for example, lots of nice books 🙂

And a cup of herbal tea, a delicious home baked cookie or 2 or 3 or….

Sitting in my rocking chair in the afternoon sun, watching the Birds go to and from the feeder and watching the snow glisten on top of the frozen creek…..

9 of Cups afternoon!

Rob Ford, stay sober today or you and Justin Bieber are going to be in the news again tonight.


Aging Queen:

I am in a good mood, exited in fact!

After having been all alone for the last 25 days = over my birthday, Winter Solstice, X-mas, New Years and so on, my hubby Peter is coming home today! ♥

It had been a bit lonely at times, in spite of lots and lots of hard work – in in the Arctic temperatures – all the way down to -38 centigrade – and the lots and lots of snow = 2.70 meters in that time, the ice, the nasty storms, the power outages, the no phone, to call friends or neighbours… all that…….

But today late evening I will go down south and pick him up from the airport bus 🙂 

From the so called “Healing Tarot” I am drawing my card of the day:

The Queen of Pentacles:

 Q of P

She is getting her hair done – in a quite elaborate way.

The image gives me the idea, to also braid my hip long hair in a special and festive way.

I feel like the Queen of Pentacles , actually:)

Just so, and in spite of knowing better, I get out the Healing Tarot book and read the small print page about the QoP:

Queen of Pentacles for AT

Reading the paragraphs significantly dampens my exuberant mood.

Yes, it is true, there is my lingering and slowly worsening back problem – a broken vertebra that never really healed and now dances with arthritis….

Is that normal?

For a woman of 58 that was starved to skin and bones in a christian orphanage, far away from loving parents and subsequently had never quite managed to weigh more than 48kg?

Yes, wrinkles here and there and everywhere and with my physique they show. 😦

Reading this makes me feel ugly and old.

Will it help to braid my hair in a nice special way….

Yes, I HAVE to put myself first!

In terms of food – I can eat and afford to buy anything I want.

I had planned to go to the special deli with European foods in Barrie….

I know that I deserve a little treat after this lonely endurance test, but after reading this message it is not so much fun anymore……

I fell off my “happy” cloud…..


Almost dead – according to my new deck !??

My Deck for January 2014 will be the Healing Tarot , which I received as my Birthday/ Winter Solstice gift.
So far I have looked at all the cards in detail:
The mayors on January 1.
Swords on January 2nd 
the Cups yesterday 
and the Wands Pentacles today.
The deck is largely RWS based and the art is black line drawing on white background with large borders. 
I am not a big fan of black and white decks 
Some of the images are plain weird, some I am taken aback by. What is going on in them?
The book is very detailed , but does not explain the imagery and the artist’s thoughts and intentions.

Ifffff I were to read “by the book” – I would be dead by tomorrow – due to a variety of nasty diseases and full of an assembly of different cancers. 
It WORRRRRRIES ME to think, that there may be people without a medical degree or background who are relating these meanings to their clients….
