The Elsa Memorial Orchid reblooms

Waxing Moon
Saturn Retrograde
Mercury Retrograde
Sunny and cold

In the 30’s today, but at least the sun is out. Maybe I can get out this week and clean up some of the beds. And I have to get that lawnmower — not the best thing to do during a Mercury Retrograde, but it’s a small lawnmower, not a car or a refrigerator, so I’ll consider it a small purchase, not a major one!

Went to acupuncture yesterday morning. He worked on my back, and needled me for the cough. Buh-bye, cough. I have what’s more like a deep throat clearing once or twice a day, but the cough is gone, which means the back can heal, and I’m back to regular stretching and strengthening exercises. Carefully, but consistently.

I’ve got a new post up on Gratitude and Growth about what’s going on in the garden, and the Ever-Growing Eggplant.

Grocery shopping and resting to let the treatment set for awhile yesterday, then commented on exercises in the workshop, posted the new one, and got started on the edits for ASSUMPTION OF RIGHT. I like my editor, which helps a lot. She’s got great ideas, and she’s very enthusiastic about the book. I’ve also got to get back into the rhythm of THE SPIRIT REPOSITORY, and I have an idea for another Annabel Aidan book, which has nothing to do with these characters. I need to organize my time. And not neglect the taxes,which hang around and are just a major magilla this year. I have something like eight extra schedules to file this year. Hopefully, next year’s taxes will be easier. At least I won’t have to file in NY State, which is just one of the meanest state tax organizations with whom I’ve ever dealt. Nothing like systematically cashing checks without applying it where it’s supposed to be, right?

I have to do the write-up for Confidential Job #1 today, too.

Got a few errands to run, but I want to get some good time in at the desk first, and, once I come in from the garden this afternoon, some quality time with edits.

A dear friend’s cat died, and I just hurt for him. I know how awful those last few hours are, with the animal in pain. It’s heartbreaking.



  1. That orchid is the most beautiful color I’ve ever seen.

    Those taxes sound heinous. I wish there were an easier way – just take my money and don’t require me to fill out papers, people!

  2. Sorry to hear about your friend’s cat. 😦

    The orchid *is* lovely, and I’m glad your cough seems to be history.

  3. What great news about your cough! The Orchid is gorgeous. Sorry to hear about your friends cat, I’ll say a prayer for him.
    Blessings for a good day!
