On this Monday morning, after a few less-than-pleasant wake-ups by smelly puppy and later an attack by muddy puppy paws, I took my tarot card deck, shuffled it, and asked myself the following question (while shuffling):
What do I need to know about my upcoming week?
I’m a bit stressed, I’ll have you know. There’s construction happening on the back deck as of today which is both good and bad – the deck needs improving to prevent from falling apart and become more functional while covid rages on, so kids especially can still have friends over and hang together. But lumber prices are high and he keeps changing his mind what we are going to do which is influenced by budgetary constraints, yada yada.
Frankly, I don’t want to invest in this house much anymore, but I’m pragmatic and know how valuable an esthetically-funcional small house must be for potential resale value. Especially in this neighbourhood…
We’re not selling yet. We collectively decided until the youngest is done high school (four years) it’s best to remain here. For the kids’ sake primarily.
I can manage this short-term plan only because I live part of my time at my mom’s in the suburbs… It’s really a good in-between situation, for all of us, no matter how unconventional it may appear to anyone. It’s basically office hours for me. 😃
Anyway, these were the cards that appeared this morning:
Since tomorrow is Tarot Tuesday, I won’t go into all the details; I will however tell you what pops into my head right off the bat:
- Pentacles are Earth energy and symbolize work and creativity.
- See the first card on the left, the Eight of Pentacles? That was me in the past few weeks and continues to be me this upcoming week.
- I have not pulled the Three of Pentacles before and will analyze further.
- I have also not pulled the Nine of Cups before but I do know Cups are Water energy which implies emotions, feelings. I will leave this for later as well.
The dog needs a bath. He is coming to mom’s with me and I already don’t know how the sleeping arrangements will go since I’m not going to bring the crate. He is fidgety even when he sleeps so… 🙄
If a kid comes along (she said she wants to) I’ll banish him in with her … 😛
I’ll figure it out. The good news about mom’s house is she has a huge backyard and puppy can run himself into exhaustion. Let’s hope he does that. 😏
So. I feel better already. Off to a new week with purpose and focus.
