Sometimes Psychedelic, Sometimes Spiritual, Always Cool

Welcome to the Jungle


I’ve been into some serious blues, purples, and turquoise lately.  I can’t help it, it just happens.   “The Clearing” is focused  on transitioning from the heart chakra to the blues of the throat chakra  with maybe even some of the purple sixth chakra showing up. Things are on the move!

My heart chakra painting should be finished in the next few days, assuming the timing is right. I had to let it breathe for awhile, not to mention letting myself adjust to the clearing that took place.  This  energy art print is my way of paving the way for the fifth chakra painting, the throat.

Daily Channeled MessageĀ® by Dyan Garris 

There is a somewhat softer edge to this day as closure and resolution seem to be right around the corner. As the energies begin to shift now and we can begin to have hope for the future, Spirit asks us to examine a few things. Who or what is your source? Who or what have you been giving your power away to and why? If you’ve been waiting for a situation to change, waiting and wondering why someone isn’t doing or hasn’t done something differently, or wondering why someone has the attitudes and point of view that they do, wonder no longer. Focus your energy instead on your own center, your own power, and your own source. Everything is a reflection and you are in there somewhere. Peer inside the darkness and find your light. Reclaim your power. 

The Mirror Card


The Mirror 

“When you look into this mirror 

The reflection is not of you 

This window is here to help you see

Far beyond yourself it’s true.” 





That’s a cool message I thought, and one that I should examine (Great….another message to examine..gah!)




As I’m sitting here, Bobo, my crazy little jack russel terrier is racing madly around the house, bouncing off the furniture for a little extra speed and momentum.  He stops every few seconds, tries to speak in Human, and then he’s off again.  Lol, dogs are so funny.   Bobo is especially entertaining with an equal amount of “highly annoying” thrown in which he follows up with “super sweet”.   His voice…good Gawd!   So LOUD……and Brain Piercing.


Bobo, such a cute, sweet, smart, annoying little guy! I wuv him. 



A couple of months ago, Bobo (affectionately known as Bobo McBratz)  was racing around the house like Speedy Gonzales and Penny, our roommate Jeremiahs’ very overweight hulk of a black lab  (affectionately known as  Penny McPhatz),  decided to get in on the chase.


Penny McPhatz, she’s obsessed with food…and lasers   



They were racing around the house at top speed (well, Penny lumbered…the house shook ) with Bobo going up and over all the furniture, easily evading the Incredible Bulk.    Penny decided to cut him off at the pass as he was going over the top of the couch that separates the living room from the dining room.  She jumped on the couch  and somehow launched her walrus like body over the back,  and they collided in mid air.   Bobo richoceted off Penny like he was shot out of a cannon! lol He went flying through the air backwards and bounced off the cedar chest.   lololol 


Oh my gosh, that was so funny, and he was so mad!  I was sitting in the recliner laughing at this turn of events, so Bobo  jumped into my lap and proceeded to cuss Penny up one side and down the other.  I’ve never heard so many different sounds coming out of that little dog’s mouth before and I’ve heard a lot of sounds as he tries to speak in Human (he’s very smart and on occasion gets pretty close).  What a tirade!  So Penny has to tell her side of the story and  sits right at my feet, looks me directly in the face and says “Grrrrr woof…….grrrr woof”.  


Then Bobo looked at me and loudly said “arrarrrarr, rrrrr, yip yip, grrr ow ow ow whine whine squeal arararrrrr ow ow ow” with his voice hitting a range of octaves that were mind boggling even for him.   I couldn’t help but  laugh, and while Bobo typically enjoys making me laugh, in this case it just made him madder and escalated his tirade. heheee   Poor wittle Bobo….


Here are the rest of our dogs….



Ellie Bear, better known as The White Devil.

She’s my daughter Andi’s dog that apparently is now my dog seeing as how it’s been almost 3 MONTHS since I agreed to babysit her for supposedly a WEEK.  She’s getting better behaved or so I tell myself.  She’s super smart and does tricks like a circus dog, most notably a very entertaining “Ninja Roll” (but only if there are high quality treats involved like meat.  Dog biscuits, crackers….those are a no go).



Chance, my Bubby Dog

He’s the oldest, the most obedient, the most loyal and protective and always has a smile on his face. 


Patches, better known as Patches McPhartz

She’s the sweetest, most sensitive and gentlest of our dogs. She always knows when I feel bad and tries to give me some lovin’.  This picture was taken in the Great Blizzard of 2011.

Needless to say, sometimes it’s a madhouse around here, a madhouse sitting in the middle of an increasingly unruly jungle. I wouldn’t trade it though, I love my crazy jungle.

I know Memorial Day is about war veterans, but it’s also a day that I choose to honor the memory of my mom, my dad, my aunts (especially Aunt Gladys), uncles, and grandparents.


Have a great one everybody!

Saturday Laughs

I’ve decided that today is a day for funny videos.  (Not one business link or business keyword in sight! Yay!)  Uh, can you tell I’ve acquired a bad attitude towards the whole internet marketing thing?  Maaann, so unfulfilling and just  a total drag.  I’m afraid spring and summer weather will keep me away from the computer quite a bit.

My day started off by walking outside barefoot to take in this glorious sunny warm weather, and promptly stepping in chicken poop. Gah!  So I thought, maybe some funny animal videos are what’s called for.

Monkeys are so cool.   I mean, wouldn’t it be fun to live and swing in the trees!?  On the flip side,  I don’t think it would be that fun to throw poop at each other.  Although, maybeeee… (staring off into space imagining myself throwing my own poop at someone……..EWWWWWW!)   Yeah, that would be gross, just had to make sure.

Now dogs, how awesome would it be to have the life of a pampered dog!  They’ve got it going on and I  like that they can be mortal enemies with the neighbor dogs one day, then do a little butt sniffing and wa la! truce!  Too bad humans couldn’t solve their differences that way….(staring into space imagining feuding humans bending over to sniff each other’s butts…. ewwwwwww!)  LOL, Ok, maybe not, just had to make sure…

Kitties, how I would love to be a kitty, sleepin’ all day, oh yeah!  Sometimes I see our kitties at the neighbors house, getting fed special treats no doubt.  They come around when they want to and go off on big adventures whenever they feel like it.  And in the spirit of a poop/butt oriented post, they’re neat and clean and bury their poop. 

I remember when we first got our pygmy goats, they were about eye level with the chickens at the time.  I was out in the shed petting them, and our cat Sugar comes creeping up to check it out.  One of the goats took a step towards her and she sprang about two feet straight up in the air, held there for a second, and somehow projected herself sideways about 4 feet!  It was like watching the real life version of that cartoon with Snagglepuss.  Remember this?  “Heavens to Murgatroid! Exit, Stage Left!” lol….I’m probably the only one old enough to remember that cartoon….Maaaann!
Have an awesome Saturday!

Another Dog Story

The Migraine Zone  
I love all my puppies, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes it gets a little ridiculous around here.  All of our dogs seem to think they need to be within four feet of me at all times, all  five dogs.  I’m like the pied piper, wherever I go it’s a mini parade.  If I shut the door to the bathroom, they  lay down outside the door and wait patiently for me to come back out, then follow me single file and take their places within the four foot range with Bobo in my lap.
Yesterday I had a slammin’ migraine, so I took one of my treximets which knock me out  hard.  I fell asleep on the couch and woke up about 2 a.m. and decided I needed to go to bed.  In a hardcore haze of groggy, where am I? mentality, I stood up, stepped on Chance’s tail who was sleeping next to the couch.  He let out a yelp which startled Bobo, who sleeps under the blanket with me and triggered  a full-on Jack Russell Terrier tirade of high pitched screaming and yelling. Ellie, my daughter’s dog, starts her shrill little girl shrieking.  I stepped somewhere else to get off of Chance’s tail, and stepped on Penny’s tail, who yelped and started barking.  Then I  stumbled over Patches, (Miss Skunkalicious), and promptly did a face plant on the floor amidst a chaotic chorus of exited dog yelling.  Good grief, what a zoo!
I laid there for a minute, groaning and imagining myself with one of those Batman cartoon bubbles over my head that says POW!  and then one that says ARGGGGGHHHHH!.  The noise and excitement dies down but while I’m on the floor in total darkness trying to get my act together, my face is getting  licked by several tongues at once (cartoon bubble that says EWWWWWWW). 

I stumble towards the bedroom where for some unknown reason, the door is half shut, so I promptly crash into the door with my face!  Good Gawd, that migraine/treximet combo is a bitch…

The good news?  Nothing is broken, my puppies adore me and my migraine is gone. (Cartoon bubble that says AWWWWW).
By the way, that top picture is how I feel when I get a migraine.  I created that image yesterday when I was in the migraine/drugged zone.  Pretty colors but a little chaotic and jaggedy.

Have an awesome day!

Later,

Laurie
