I had a quiet week. I worked on getting my last book out. I am having technical problems. I feel like giving up. On Tuesday, I went out with Elma. I had an appointment in Stockton and then went to mimis Cafe, lane Bryant where I bought a lovely sweater at their semi-annual sale and went to Texas Roadhouse, all in elk Grove. I am still coughing and have diarrhea. I was unable to go to Pat’s on Christmas. However. Nicholas and I are going to San Francisco on new years day to go to the de jung Museum and Pat’s. Debbie and I shared a bottle of fre Chardonnay for an early New years celebration.

Update from the trenches

19 of swords. Deep wounds. Betrayal, loos. Crisis

I habern suffering from RSV the past week. I am tired as hell and still coughing. I saw Rose on Wednesday while my son visited my sister who had Covid. I took my son to my mental health doctor where she answered his questions about autism. I had a streak of luck. I won some gloves at bingo and then won some pretty towels at a raffle at our Christmas party.

Happy Winter Solstice!

The main message of the winter solstice is exploring the darkness and turning it into light. I have been to hell and back in the last week. I have been sick with RSV the past week and in isolation. I am still tired and coughing. However, the sun finally came out and I am going out to visit my sister and rose in Tracy. I am going to watch Srason 3 of Emily in Paris.

Ideas to celebrate winter solstice:

Put your crystals out in the sun to absorb the energy of this sacred day.

Empower Yule and Christmas cards with energy

Empower the gifts you give this season with love and happiness.

Build a Yule altar.

Recognize Yule is a time of closure, especially in relation to sun-driven activities in your life–groups and organizations, corporation. Gracefully let go of those things that are no longer needed. Add meditation and prayer tuned to the low ebb of solar energy, to include in your daily activities.

Tarot card of the day. Keywords: life cycle, karma, cause and effect

I got sick last Thursday with RSV. I caught it from my roommate who went to the hospital. It is wonderful to have her gone. The room doesn’t stink and it is quiet. I summoned enough energy on Monday to get a steroid shot for my back and to go to Santana row for our Christmas gift giving. We ate at maggianos, an old fashioned Italian restaurant straight of the godfather. I got two blouses and a hat.
