Ring the bell!
Your Mission Today —
For the Busy Person — The Lint Trap in the Dryer — another disaster waiting to happen if you don’t clean it after every load, and if you don’t clean out the vent at least once a year. Also, no clothes piled around the dryer — this is a fire hazard, too.
For the Dedicated Enthusiast — The Lint Trap in the Dryer and out-of-season clothes that don’t fit.
Someday I will fit back into this! Yeah. Right. When the styles have changed just enough so that I’ll be in that stillpoint of truly shabby, no chic about it. Sigh.
I’ve been publicly doing the Great Release Challenge for three years. For me, this year is a major turning point. As I’ve mentioned in one of the earlier posts, what I’ve passed over for two years now faces the floodlight of my determination. Before, I glossed over most of the clothes and set my sights on other things. Not this time. With menopause over (is it ever really?) I have actually come to terms with quite a few things this year. Never again will I hold that fresh-young-thang aura…that’s long gone for this lifetime; but, that’s okay. I’ve learned to deal with my aging reflection in the mirror — that…person…really… is me. My new role model is Betty White.
And, ya know? I like it!
Time to blossom in a new way. From my aura (which we’re working on together through the Gold Star Meditations) , to my hair (we’re not doing that quite yet) to my clothes. Time to get rid of the retro material that I use to cover my body. This became extremely apparent when I examined one of my favorite 20-plus-year skirts, pulled on it, and the elastic promptly disintegrated.
Yep. Time to ring in the new.
Go through your clothes. Give away what you can. Trash the rest.
Ring the bell!
Gold Star Meditation For Today —
If you complete this challenge — you earn another gold star! This is number twelve! Put it at your throat for eloquence!
Remember that list you made on the first day? Keep it handy, we’ll be working with it soon.
Release Program Diary
True to Mercury Retrograde and the flip of Uranus to Direct — my dryer decided to go to the great dryer-heaven wherever that may be. Which, of course, posed a problem. I’m not adverse to hanging things outside (did it all the time as a kid) in an effort to wait until Mercury turns direct this week; but, with the dementia patient and the plethora of urine soaked bedding (hey, I tell you like it is) I would need enough clothesline from here to town square in the meantime…so! I waited until the best astrological time possible, grabbed the hubby, the red pick-em-up, and off we went.
It went so smooth, it wasn’t even funny…and, I got a 30% discount. You simply cannot beat that! The only reason I’m writing about this is to say that not all astrological timing is willing to cooperate with what we need. If you think about it, you can work around it. I used Llewellyn’s Planetary Guide and checked the best I could when might be the best time to shop for the dryer in the limited window of time. Will I have a problem with the dryer in the future? Maybe; but, since I saved so much money on the sale, I was able to purchase the protection plan. Even if it does blow up — its covered.
Even better, remember that elf-gnome person that stopped and took away the junk when I was writing HedgeWitch? Darned if he didn’t show up this morning and ask to take away the old dryer and the two broken air conditioners. Have at ’em, baby!
I will persevere!
Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
So Be It!
