My dream was interrupted by a call of nature - So I had to cut into it and then I really couldn't get back into it - sadly. It was a interesting one.
I was in a large building like a school or castle and was getting ready to board a train to go learn more. But the train was full of dead boys/their ghosts. A man next to me sent in his familiar? Another ghost, to get the hoard of ghost boys off the train and they left in a mass and I could see them running along side the train - it was darkish, like early morning.
I remember most of them were gone so I jumped up on a platform in between cars and 2 of them stopped to stare at me. I said in a low flat voice that they had to GO NOW they weren't to be here and they ran off. Like I had some power to also make them go?
That's when I woke up - I need to try to re-enter this dream later.
And being a NASA junkie -
Also of note today is a NASA launch! From their website:
A new era of human spaceflight is set to begin as American astronauts once again launch on an American rocket from American soil to the International Space Station as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will fly on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft, lifting off on a Falcon 9 rocket at 4:33 p.m. EDT May 27, from Launch Complex 39A in Florida, for an extended stay at the space station for the Demo-2 mission. The specific duration of the mission is to be determined.
As the final flight test for SpaceX, this mission will validate the company’s crew transportation system, including the launch pad, rocket, spacecraft, and operational capabilities. This also will be the first time NASA astronauts will test the spacecraft systems in orbit.
So, the other day I was getting ready in the morning and I saw a largish spider come in the bathroom window. That happens sometimes -they usually come in and hide somewhere for awhile. But this one came in the window and then did this very obvious circuit around the bathroom walls, pausing as if making sure I actually saw it - kind of hard to not see a large orangy spider be-bopping around above my head LOL
Anyway, it made its rounds and then went back out the window. I have never seen a spider do that in there. Then again this morning a wee spider walked up the wall above my computer and just sat there. Yes, yes, I see you. Ok, I hear you.
Weaving and creating. Also, the web is like the Wheel in Tarot, ups and downs and knowing things change all the time. It is about knowing where to stand and what to decide and to keep moving so we don't freeze up with fear.
When Spider drops in you should look to be creative - either my making something or finding creative ways to get past an obstacle or tricky situation. And be aware of what is around you - perhaps something you started on awhile ago is now bearing fruit.
This was good timing as a dream I had this morning had me waking up with creative energy which hasn't happened in awhile.
So, yeah, cigarettes? It was an odd snippet of a dream and I only wrote it down because I am out of practice of writing them down (they all seem so blah while I have been stuck inside for so long) and because it was so odd.
So, in this one, I was at my parents house and my dad came in and I asked him if he needed anything at the store. He said Doral cigarettes, menthol, the kind with the green stripe.
First I was annoyed that he needed anything as I really didn't want to go to the store for anything and then WTF? No one in my family smokes. I asked him if he had enough and he didn't so I went to the store.
My brother and I are now at the checkout counter and I ask if I can get them there or if I have to go to the "cigarette desk?" They say I have to go there and I am annoyed again because the only thing I really came to get were the dang cigarettes. I honestly have no idea if there was anything else in my cart as I don't recall shopping at all. So, I send my brother to get the smokes and I pay the clerk with a check, only it was written on the back of an old ratty business sized envelope with tears in it so I had to tape bits of it together.
Then I woke up. I had another dream after about making out with Rob Lowe which was much more satisfying but a noise woke me up and I couldn't finish it LOLOL
It's memorial day. Just thought I'd add that in there. I am trying to get back into the blog habit to keep track of days and life and hours before they all fly by.
That was actually me around day 14 - I was waiting to cut my hair around my birthday (March 27) as I might have had jury duty and wanted to look semi decent. Then covid shut the world down and I missed my hair cut, which was last done in December. It. Is. Touching. My. Neck. (I hate that)
I am actually surprised I haven't cut it myself - yet.
It looks like things are starting to slowly reopen this weekend. I saw that Hobby Lobby was open yesterday - HOBBY LOBBY! I cannot wait to get in there for the smell of the store alone. I cannot describe it but it is one of my favorite smells. Like a bookstore smells of ALLTHEBOOKS - Hobby Lobby smells of ALLTHECRAFTS. I have missed it greatly.
I used to whine a lot about having to go grocery shopping and now I miss the easiness of how it used to be. Shopping now requires a mask and planning LOL Although, some changes I absolutely love - the curbside pickups are fabulous. Drive up, pop the trunk, drive away. That needs to stick around!
Amazon has more things available for Prime free delivery now too. During the first weeks it was impossible to find puzzles and paint by numbers kits at all and if they had them there was at least a $10 shipping charge and you might get it in June. I was able to get stuff here in a few days last week and for that I am grateful as I am running out of puzzles.
I mean, really? How perfect is that? I have been amusing myself with Disney's Emoji Blitz - mostly to collect the emoji because they made everything else either too complicated to do or impossible unless you spend real money. But you can still collect coins and emoji. And apparently the number of the beast too :)
I am not kidding about that. I have lost all track of time and I know I am not the only one. Every day melts into the next and I hate that. It probably doesn't help that I never bought a wall calendar this year and while I have a daily planner I don't see it unless I go look at it and right now, who needs a planner?!
Look at computer
Stare at things
Puzzle, craft, paint stuff
Fight depression from news
Sleep not sleep because wtf is happening in the world
Still - my current planner ends in June so I spent some time looking for a new one. I decided I needed to work a bit more with my highs and lows and the moon. Since I have always been so in tune with the Moon, I want to track daily, how I am feeling and what is going on etc. So, I got a Moon journal and Moonology and am hoping that will help me stay grounded in whatever fucking day it happens to be and I stop thinking its Friday when it is actually Sunday.
I watched a birthday/graduation parade yesterday in front of my house. A ton of cars decorated their windows and tied balloons to their bits and drove up and down the streets honking and playing music and celebrating their people. Because we are still being isolated and it can be so sucky. So watching that made me all teary eyed. I am blaming my period but still. There is often too much negative news and not enough stuff to make me smile and that made me smile.
This is a not so brave new world happening and cabin fever is making me itchy to see what happens next. Also, I really hope toilet paper and paper towels are more available soon. I am pretty sure the people who hoarded it back in March will have enough til 2050 at this point. Save some for the rest of us, huh?
73 says between blogs. 73 days of staying indoors and watching the world via computer screens. 73 days of watching covid change everything. 73 days of not cutting my own hair off. 73 days of wondering what comes next.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
