Waning Moon
Pluto Retrograde
Neptune Retrograde
Sunny and pleasant

I looked at the calendar, realized that Mercury goes retrograde on the 2nd and said a bad word! 😉 No wonder I chose August as the month off — I wanted to stay home and lay low. No chance of that now. It’s retrograde from the 2nd to the 26. I will have to keep my mouth shut and smile a lot. And hopefully get some great deals on yoga clothes and garden statuary! 😉

Yoga on the beach was wonderful yesterday. A cloudy, cool day (wore my sweat jacket all class) with seals playing just off shore. They paused and watched us from a safe distance for awhile — too funny!

Didn’t have time to get online when I got home. Had to take care of a few things in the garden, including a patch on the side I hoped would be a wildflower paradise, but, instead, started looking like a vacant lot! Took care of that, pulled some of the coleus out of the urn because it crowded everything else, deadheaded, and took care of a few things. The mower was a pain in the you-know-what. It hums along for a few minutes, then sputters and dies and won’t restart. Not the way a mower in its first season of usage should behave.

Our retired gardening neighbor came bearing more gifts of beans and cucumbers and complimented me on how nice everything looks! Praise from the master! I nearly fainted.

Headed out in the afternoon for a site job. This client basically wants full-time staff and I’m not it. Nor do I do domestic or personal assistant work. So more discussion has to happen here.

Got a little bit of writing done, but not happy with it, and got some revisions done.

Came home, barely had time to scarf down some dinner, and headed back out again for a committee meeting. The woman who was so awful to me at the concert didn’t show up, so it was a lively and fun meeting. I think the event will turn out well.

Back home, a few hours spent with students, fell into bed exhausted and overslept this morning.

Got to rush out and go grocery shopping, with an eye towards the next couple of weeks. My mom will be away, and I’ve got to pack up the food for her, so all she has to do is pop her meal packets in the microwave. And I have to have some food in for myself, too. Then, I have lunch at a great place on the beach with a friend, and back to work with my students this afternoon and evening. I’d wanted to attend a lecture on turtles, but I think I need to focus on my students first. They’re keeping up with their work, and I need to keep up with the responses.

I also want to get some writing in there, and some work for the Mermaid Ball.

  1. Who couldn’t love yoga on a beach with seals? My lord, is it true a year ago you were still in Hell? Or had you escaped by then? I think that milestone should be celebrated annually.

  2. I hope everything goes well for you today. The yoga class on the beach sounds so soothing.
