Hot Saturday Morning, and a Deer

It’s been hot here. 97 yesterday. Though, I told my friend out in Iowa, and it was 113 there. It never used to get that hot there. Global warming, I guess. 97 is pretty hot for here. Whatever, I love summer. 97 is summer. I wanted my son to go with me to an outdoor bar in town last night, but he wouldn’t go, said it was too hot to sit outside, lol. I said, how can you stay inside? Anyway, there was a breeze, and it was cooling down. But I sat on my deck instead and talked to 2 of my oldest friends on the phone, had pizza, drank wine. I had a lovely evening. Sat out til it was dark and the mosquitos started feasting on me, lol.

Today I have a couple people coming here to give me estimates on moving my stuff to FL. I’d like to get that pretty well organized, so I can just start packing. The inspection on my house is Monday. I am expecting it to go well, I don’t know that they can find too much wrong with this house. Nothing major. I know the gutters need cleaning. I am going to try to fix the linkage for a bathroom drain myself this weekend. It doesn’t look to be a big job.

I came into my kitchen at about 5:45 this morning, and there was a deer, a buck, in my yard. I love seeing them. It’s only the 2nd time I’ve seen one in my back yard. But my yard backs up to woods, on a hill, so it’s not an uncommon sight around here. Yesterday a black bear broke into a mans house in a town about 30 miles from here! The man heard a noise and went into his den and there was a black bear in there, lol. YIKES. Neighborhood was close to where my sister-in-law lives. Just for fun, I looked up the spirit meaning of a deer crossing my path on Spirit_animals.com. Here’s what it said:

If Deer has crossed your path;

It is often a sign not to be too hard on yourself. Still the voice of the self critic and treat yourself with gentleness and understanding, be yourself and continue along your path. Seek out your inner treasures and use them generously to help those around you. Trust that kindness and graciousness will be well received.

We are also reminded that we cannot push towards change in others, rather we gently nudge them in the right direction with love and understanding. Lead by doing and showing the way.

Deer is a messenger of serenity, can see between shadows and hear what isn’t being said.

Deer teaches us to maintain our innocence and gentleness so we can share our open-heartedness with others.

That’s kind of cool. I like that.

I am having a hard time lately keeping up on people’s blogs. I’ll try to get caught up this weekend. Just so much going on. I think I’ll be better at it once I’m settled in my new home.

 

Love and light everyone.
