Spring Equinox

Yes, that’s right, it’s the Spring Equinox and it’s snowing! Too funny!

I want to take a minute to congratulate New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur. Earlier this week, he broke Patrick Roy’s record as the goalies with the most wins. As of that game, he had 552 wins as a goalie. I haven’t paid attention to the Devils games this week (yeah, I know, I should), so it may already be higher than that. Brodeur is not only an extraordinary athlete, he’s a great guy. May he have as many more years of successful hockey ahead of him as he chooses.

Yesterday, I took care of a lot of business. A word of advice: If you ever get a chance to do business with LPL Financial, pass. They are a nightmare. I had to deal with them through no choice of my own these past weeks, and when I do have a choice, I certainly wouldn’t let them near anything of mine.

Violet is editing this post as I type. She decided that she must be involved with the actual writing process.

Elsa seems to be suffering a relapse. I’m going to keep an eye on her, but, if it continues through the weekend, I guess I’ll be headed back to the vet.

McAfee, as usual, is a nightmare this morning.

Cleared off a good portion of client work yesterday, which is great. I have one more project to finish this afternoon, and then the weekend is clear for my own fiction and for the work on Confidential Job #1.

It looks like I’ll get to see my play next Tuesday night. I’m excited and nervous. It closes at the end of next week, and there were a couple of cast changes.

The plan for the weekend is to work on the two anthology stories, keep going with CRAVE THE HUNT, go over ASSUMPTION OF RIGHT one more time, giving the submission package materials a final polish, and then get the first set of queries out for that next week, along with submission packets on another project that’s making the rounds and sparking interest. Once I’ve shoved those two projects out the door, I can return to the revisions on ANGEL HUNT and go back to The Big Project next week. I hope I get some work done on the plays, too.

I’m not paying much attention to the outside world this weekend; I’m concentrating on quite a few “inner lives”.! 😉 I also want to tweak my morning yoga practice a bit, and try something new meditation-wise.

Later today, I plan to post a ritual on the Cerridwen site for the Equinox, as part of the year-long series “Rituals for Gaia.” I’ll drop a post and let people know when it goes up.

I’m also going to cook hard-boiled eggs, color them, draw runes on them, and hand them out to friends, as I do each Spring Equinox. The runes are for love, prosperity, health, success, home, etc. Sort of like decorating Easter Eggs, but for Ostara and with runes.

  1. Congrats to Martin Broduer! A veteran hockey player and a true performer! I will admit my loyalties lie with the Penguins, but Broduer is a household name and a respected player/person. Good for him!

    Can you drop me a note about the location of your play, hon? If I can swing it, I’d love to see it! Distance being a factor, but still. Never know!

    Prayers for Elsa. Let’s hope she kicks this thing soon.

  2. And I spelled Brodeur’s name wrong – twice. Never type before caffeine.

  3. That’s a neat idea with the eggs! We LOVE to color them. But my kids don’t like to eat them. So, I make massive Deviled eggs afterwards! 😉

    I do hope Elsa isn’t regressing. Sending happy kitty thoughts her way! LOL on Violet and the editing!

    Happy Snowy Spring Equinox!

  4. How cool on the eggs!

    Violet makes me laugh. I can just see her helping you type. hehe I hope Elsa is okay. I will send good thoughts her way for her.

    It’s a bright sunny day here. And you sound like you’re getting lots done! 🙂

    P.S.: Forgot to mention good post!

  6. Love the egg idea–Spring Equinox eggs! d:)

  7. Snow? Good grief! I’ve never heard of dying eggs for Spring Equinox. It sounds like a fun and personal thing to do. I’m sorry to hear that Elsa is not feeling well again. I’ll keep her in my thoughts and prayers. I hope your day improves.

  8. I couldn’t believe the snow when I looked out the window this morning. This winter doesn’t want to end!!

    Great egg idea. It’s also a good way to relax and take a break.

  9. After reading through the article, I feel that I really need more info. Could you share some resources please?
