Working and Hibernating

Last week was very tiring, and I was in bed by 9pm nearly every night. My day job is mentally draining, plus I did a lot of driving around. Thankfully the snow has stopped (for now), and we look to be snow-free for another week at least. By the time I get home, take the dog for a walk, make dinner, the husband gets home (he works later than I do), we eat dinner, watch another episode of Dark Shadows and by that time I’m literally exhausted.

I did manage to do some meditation before bed at least three nights last week. Deepak Chopra is wonderful.

Some of the things we ordered finally arrived: business cards to promote this blog, some DVD’s and a book. The business cards looks great, with rounded edges and a glossy shine. My husband ordered me three seasons of Still Open All Hours, a hilarious BBC comedy that I first saw on PBS and fell in love with. I think there are about 5 or 6 seasons. We also got the first season of Being Human, another BBC program with the gorgeous Russell Tovey. It’s a dark melodrama about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost who befriend each other and get into all sorts of shenanigans. We wouldn’t be able to watch these at all without our all-region DVD/Blu-ray player. It was one of the best things we ever bought, we can watch any DVD from any country. Alot of these programs are not available in the U.S. and the DVD’s won’t play on American players. Because American products are crap.

The cards look great, don’t they?
The cast from Still Open All Hours. I love this show.
We’ve just started watching this, and it’s great.

Also, this came.

This is a hardcover edition of The Mabinogion, a collection of ancient Welsh tales. I’m rather attached to these stories. I already have several paperback editions, but this hardcover is quite lovely and I’d been wanting it for ages.

I’ve been getting that feeling again lately that I should hold off on teaching. My new classes are supposed to start in March, but things are still uncertain regarding the plague. There has been some interest in the home-study course, but even that has me feeling a bit anxious. I’m just sensing that now is not a good time. Even though the orange dictator is leaving the White House in just three days, I think we’re in for some violence and turbulent times. Speaking of the plague, I’m getting my first vaccine this coming Tuesday. I know some people have had bad reactions, some that required a trip to hospital, so I’m a little nervous, but I’m going to do it.

I worked on my book some more today. I wanted to have it finished by now, but I don’t want to rush it. I keep thinking of more things to add. It’s so hard to write during the week, I may have to schedule a couple of days off work to finish it.

In a few hours I’ll be doing my weekly devotional to Cerridwen, along with some divination and meditation. I do this every Sunday night at 9pm. I always do tarot and ogham readings to get some insight into the coming week. With the inauguration happening, I’m curious to see what the cards and the staves have to say.

So that has been my week. Rather uneventful.

And it looks like Winston has lost one of his toys under the sofa, so I guess it’s time to stop for now. I’ll try to write again during the week, but no promises…

Next weekend for sure.
