tunes and in tune

Greetings my smooch recipients!

The Melissa Auf Der Maur album is wonderful. It’s a little dark, a little metaphysical, a little grubby rock and funky with ethereal vocals… it’s cool. Get it. (Kinda like if Kyuss, Hole and a gaggle of wayward angels had a baby…)

I’m not 100% today… or yesterday for that matter. I did a lot of energy draining activity over the weekend and I think it’s tuckered me out. I stayed home from the farm, lit candles, listened to some music and painted. I didn’t get to do art over the weekend, so tonight was the indulgence…

It’s coming along. I’m pleased. I don’t think I can finish it tonight due to the super thick amounts of paint on the canvas already and the thick head I’ve got thanks to absinthe! Tomorrow she will be finished. Tonight I indulged in the evening of half consciousness and let the energies be after a certain pause. And there’s thunder outside… god I love a thunderstorm.

More tomorrow kitties-
smooches~ (paint covered lips)

Blue moons and perfect days

Greetings all-

It’s currently the day ushered in by the blue moon of last eve. I am strongly attached to the moon for reasons I may never fully understand but deny not that I’m to revel in the rarity and cosmic deja vu of a blue moon occurrence. She was brilliant last night… huge, proud and smiling upon the earth with a warm smile not typically apparent in the mother of shadows and veiled intent. She was truly a gift and I am grateful. Mei luna…

I was out with friends last night and had a really swell time, having given thanks for the lunar gift prior to engaging in the plans pending. Aaron was there too. It was an interesting feeling to have gone out with him as a friend. No pressure to be sweet or amorous. We ate pizza, played pool, drank a little… it was comfort like I’ve not felt with him in ages. We were free. It was beautiful. And mei luna smiled sweetly on us all.

We returned home before midnight and I did a little more thanking and such before nearly passing out from exhaustion. I barely drank alcohol last night, so I was just ready for sleep- nothing more complex than that. Mei luna kissed me goodnight and I slept like a babe.

I’m having a very productive day today. Aaron is away with his brother at a festival and I am free to do what I please in this house. I’ve done the mundane tasks of washing floors, scrubbing the toilet, running a load of towels through the wash… but all without provocation, interruption, or the feeling of having to share space. This is my house today and I am drinking in every moment with an energy and pleasure. Not that I mind my (now ex)husband being around, but it’s easier on us both when the other is out of the house. It’s natural and we accept that. Nothing more to it.

I think I’ll paint. I’ve not dirtied a canvas in over a year. I need to now. Perhaps I’ll post a picture of it when I’m finished…

Until later kitties-
smooches of new dawns dusted in joy,

Current mood: content and productive. happy, really.

Sleepy head full of CSS…

You may have noticed a slight difference from the last blog look…

Yup, I told you awhile ago that I was attempting to learn some of the CSS and other guts of WordPress… Well that’s exactly what I’m doing. (I sorta didn’t get to it before today…)
I am pleased as a monkey covered in marmalade with the progress made today. I started with the default template, messed around with it, then snarked CSS from a couple of other sources for inspiration and direction.

The results do please me and I will plough forward with the new design.

The header graphic isn’t quite sorted yet, but will be hopefully, by the end of tomorrow.
There’s an ugly temporary link up there for now…
Oh- and it’s inconsistent between IE and Safari… go figure.

I’m falling asleep at the keyboard, so that means snoozy time kitties…

Oh- before I neglect to tell you: don’t forget to occasionally check out my dotmac* page… the link is in the upper right corner of this page. I’m always changing the pictures around and typically rotate what’s available for download.

Good night kitties-
