Well it’s day 6. Got a shower today. Cold but absolutly the best shower I’ve ever had. Getting used to the homeless thing. I’m just glad we have somewhere to sleep with ac. Hopefully just 2-3 more days til power is back on. Well gonna go chill for a while.
So we are on our way to Alexandria to find gas and some hot food. This is definitely a nightmare. But I’m so glad to have this car with awesome ac. We are under a heat advisory for the next 2 days. Of course right now……really. Still no real plans on where we are gonna stay. Hopefully our power will be on by the end of the week like they say. We will probably just hop around until then. Well wish us luck.
So the above is a real thing and very dangerous. As Ive said robs parents got a generec installed to power their entire house. Lights went out generec came on. It’s been running since Thursday morning at around 2:30. We stayed there Thursday and Thursday night. I had a bit of a headache Friday when I woke up but we left and went to help friends and family around noon. We got home about 8-9. As soon as we got back my head started hurting again. I slept Friday night and I can’t remember much at all of Saturday except I was sick and my head was still really hurting. This morning rob really felt something was wrong. He also felt bad. He made me get up and go outside to the car to see if getting out of there helped. I was confused and really sick. We went to the medic station in Anacoco. My vitals were ok. They sent fire dept out and the house was saturated at 200 which is highly dangerous. Apparently the tank was located too close to the house and the fumes were going right in the house through the ac. We left and came to town where there is limited ac and no poison. Damn. We are very lucky.
So we all made it but everything is a mess. There are trees down everywhere and power lines twisted in ways I can’t even believe. I will post a few pictures on here of some of the damage. The biggest bummer is that our power is out Indefinitely. Soonest will be a week but more likely 3 weeks. My rvs are perfect which is a miracle. So now we clean up and wait for power.
It’s 2:30 in the morning. The rain and wind has just started to hit us here. The power already flickered off and on a few times. I’m sitting in the living room debating whether to go out and see what’s going on. But as I sit here I can hear things in the wind. Probably won’t go out. Lol. It made landfall about an hour and half ago. Well that’s what’s happening here. I’ll be back….
Well it’s a bit past 8:30. It’s pretty calm outside and it’s a nice Wednesday night. Wait…we have about 4 hours until Hurricane Laura makes landfall about 90 miles south of us. Right now it is a category 4 storm. But honestly, only 7 mph away from a category 5. We have gotten everything of value and things that can’t be replaced out of our rvs and have come about 500 feet away to Robs parents house. We are staying here tonight. It’s supposed to be a really bad storm. We are on the dirty side of the eye so most of the wind damage will happen here. We are completely prepared to wake up in the morning and not have our rvs anymore. It’s gonna be a long night. I will keep everyone as informed as I can. If you are in the same path be safe…..
Had a great day with my friend tiny and his kids. Also got to see an old friend from like 8 years ago. It was a great day.
Spending the day on Toledo bend in a pontoon boat with my dear friend tiny and his family. It’s a perfect day for it.
Vinyl plank is better than vinyl sheeting. Porcelain is better than ceramic. On countertops quartz is better than granite.
Tonight is the new moon in Leo ♌️. I will be doing a simple ritual using a candle in a bowl of water with a pinch of salt. Meditation on the inner spiritual self is key. What is it I want in my life? How do I achieve this? I will write it out with more answers as they come to me. I will get in touch with my goddess and listen for wisdom. I will pull a tarot card and give my intention to the earth for powerful guidance. So mote it be. As the moon goes dark tonight you have a blank slate what will you do with it.
This song I just love. It’s from the show Star. One of my favs.
I was and am an addict. This song was very relevant to me at one time. I’ll never forget the moment that I was listening to this song and it hit me hard. It wasn’t too long after that night I was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and locked up for awhile. I lost everything that night but on the other hand I gained my life back.
Music is soooo essential to me. If you wanna know about me listen to the lyrics of the songs I listen to. I’ll try to leave a few songs for y’all when I can. Soooo this week hmmmmmm
Friday night we went to the lake for a party. Had fun watches the sun set. First time I’ve been to the lake this year. Saturday went and hung out with Becca and Jesse. Love those 2. Today just hung around house cleaned and had a quiet day. Did a bit of decorating and mostly enjoyed being home. Pictures to follow
Being Wiccan has changed my life sooooo much. It’s such a beautiful craft. I’ve found a peace and inner joy that I have never had. I want to share that peace with everyone but also keep mine. Blessed be!!!
Well my dear sweet Deandra and Jimmy finally did it. They got married yesterday. They have been together for 10 years. It was a very nice quaint ceremony. We really enjoyed it. Pictures to follow. Also got to talk to my grace tonight. She called for a few minutes. She sounded great. I’m so glad. It was a pretty great week. Work is good and I’m starting to get the swing of it all. We watched Captain Phillips tonight. I never get sick of that one. It’s sooooo good if any of y’all haven’t seen it you must. Well day is done and I’m going to relax. Spent the day cleaning. Here’s to a new week.
This is my Goddess.
PERSEPHONE was the goddess queen of the underworld, wife of the god Haides (Hades). She was also the goddess of spring growth, who was worshipped alongside her mother Demeter in the Eleusinian Mysteries. This agricultural-based cult promised its initiates passage to a blessed afterlife.
Persephone was titled Kore (Core) (the Maiden) as the goddess of spring’s bounty. Once upon a time when she was playing in a flowery meadow with her Nymph companions, Kore was seized by Haides and carried off to the underworld as his bride. Her mother Demeter despaired at her dissappearance and searched for her the throughout the world accompanied by the goddess Hekate (Hecate) bearing torches. When she learned that Zeus had conspired in her daughter’s abduction she was furious, and refused to let the earth fruit until Persephone was returned. Zeus consented, but because the girl had tasted of the food of Haides–a handful of pomegranate seeds–she was forced to forever spend a part of the year with her husband in the underworld. Her annual return to the earth in spring was marked by the flowering of the meadows and the sudden growth of the new grain. Her return to the underworld in winter, conversely, saw the dying down of plants and the halting of growth.
In other myths, Persephone appears exclusively as the queen of the underworld, receiving the likes of Herakles and Orpheus at her court.
Persephone was usually depicted as a young goddess holding sheafs of grain and a flaming torch. Sometimes she was shown in the company of her mother Demeter, and the hero Triptolemos, the teacher of agriculture. At other times she appears enthroned beside Haides
Well here we are in August. Life is happening all around us. This month is the time to lay low and soak up what we have learned so far this year. It’s hot so we stay inside but let us reflect and absorb things and get ready for the fall and holidays. Namaste.
