Waxing Moon
Saturn Retrograde
Cloudy and cold

Late posting, because well, it has been INTERESTING, that’s for sure (although maybe just to live, not to read).

Trip down yesterday was okay. Lovely sunshine, more traffic that I wanted, but I made it down in just over 4 hours, including two stops. All good. Went grocery shopping for a few last things, etc.

Some unexpected developments took up most of the afternoon, but that’s why I’m here, to solve problems. So, all was set at Site #1, things sorted out.

Moved over to Site #2 this morning, had some more unexpected kerfuffle to sort, but it seems to be sorted. Have to run out this afternoon quickly to take care of a couple of things and then it’s back to writing. I don’t usually write much in the afternoon, I’m more creative in the morning, but here’s hoping I can get it together and focus.

A gorgeous red fox is roaming between the sites of Site #1 and Site #2 (which aren’t far from each other on the same street). Definitely the same one — so lovely. Fox is one of my totems, so I’m always happy to see one close enough to appreciate it, but far enough away to honor the fact that it’s not a house pet.

It amazes me how much more stressful everything is here than on the Cape. Everyone’s running and frantic and worried. There’s the same amount to be done in both places, but somehow it all gets done on time, more efficiently, and with less fuss on the Cape than here.

Also, because it’s a Saturn Retrograde, every time I’m put in a position where I’d usually be RE-actionary, I stop, take a breath and think, “Saturn retrograde. How can I approach this differently than I have in the past?” and then I try something new. The “new” tends to be more ACTionary and REactionary, and gets things done with less stress, and, certainly, fewer personal/personnel conflicts.

So, knowing a retrograde is in place doesn’t mean just shrugging and using it as a reason for things going wrong — it’s a chance to change patterns that haven’t worked in the past.

I’m not entirely successful yet, but at least I’m aware and making an effort.

Both job sites have wonderful bird feeders and watching the birds is just amazing. The cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, and all the other birds I can’t yet identify — I could spend hours just watching them.

Okay, I better get going and get my errands done so that I can settle in and write. Tomorrow I move back to Site #1.

Back to the page. It looks like it wants to snow again, so I better get everything done before it does.

  2. I hope this isn’t a silly question, but how do you know a Fox is one of your totems? Wishing a wonderful weekend for you!

  3. I think the garden birds you get over there are simply beautiful. They are so colourful oompared to our dowdy little things.
