These are my meditation beads. I used to carry them around wherever I went. I started recently to keep them in my bag in their box. I need to actively handle them more. I was called today to sit on the Earth during my break but I sat in my warm car instead. Now I feel I missed something. I need to reconnect. Tomorrow I am off work. I am going to try hard to get outside with the kids even if it is only in the back yard. Working inside during the Winter is so challenging. I need daylight.....

I can't even find any more information about this deck but it really holds a lot of interest for me. The imagery is rich and not what you would expect. I can't wait to get to know it better.

The pictures are never very good but the kids all had a good time playing together today. Granny had a little something for everyone. The littles also received some gifts from their other grandparents. Watching everyone change so quickly amazes me and then it is like time stands still sometimes. Today Eliot and Connor hung out a lot. That translates into... the 7 year old sister tortured her 14 year old brother. Deep down I think Connor enjoyed the attention. Eliot sure enjoyed the rides on his shoulders.

I made it to work frazzled and only minutes late thanks to my habit of leaving early. Now, if only the car will make it. No word yet on it after it was towed.

I so enjoy being a resource to breastfeeding mothers when they need support. Whether it is a new mom with basic questions and in need of a home visit or a sick mother who needs support to continue nursing when the world screams at her to use treatments she is not comfortable with.

Of course working with 2 year olds again after teaching infants doesn't mean the fun ends. Dinosaurs is the theme of the week and man do they get into everything. ...
Ben's preschool class had a great time trying to match smells to pictures of the items. In the nursery Elaina had fun making Winter streamers. Eliot and Evan wanted to hang out with me a bit but they eventually went to their class. Those were the only 4 who came with me to church yesterday.

Eliot has been dreaming and thinking of a tree. It isn't quite a nightmare but she wants the dream to stop. We decided that if she drew a picture of it and we burned it in my cauldron it would help dispell the negative feelings. So far it seems to have worked. ...

I found a wonderful blackboard candle that you can write on with chalk. What a great way to share a message with the universe. I chose a round black candle for the Chalice. Along with representations of the elements and a black Mother candle we welcomed new beginnings tonight. Eliot and Elaina ran around the yard l8ke wild children. Evan and Ben took a look and stayed inside most of the time. Etta nursed in my lap. It will be Etta ' s birthday and Bread Communion at church tomorrow so a lot to celebrate. ...
