Plans: wifey, prep for Hammerstorm Yule, Hammerstorm Yule.
“Man [or woman] is his [or her] own star” (Ralph Waldo Emerson, parentheticals added).
The Noble Virtue of self-reliance requires that you depend on the efforts of your own handiwork. Do not depend on others to achieve your goals. Do not create co-dependent relationships in any way. Do not let your happiness or your success be determined by anyone else. Be responsible for yourself. Rely on your own efforts to secure your needs, for it is only as we build upon success after success that we will be truly satisfied. (C. Reimer/V. Elmersson)
A farm of your own is better, even if small,
Everyone is someone at home:
Though he has two goats and a coarsely roofed house,
That is better than begging.

I honor you this day, and I honor every bit of you that resides in me. I’m grateful for the strong German heritage you’ve provided. I look forward with eager anticipation to the great family reunion on the other side. I offer you my undying love, honor, respect, and gratitude.

1st check on all fur-kids.
Outcome: 7 hrs. of sleep with two wake-ups; Toby out/Toby in.
Brief morning conversation because she had her little man/grandson in the office.
Manifest on Hulu.
Cell phone rings, I ignore it. House phone rings; okay, someone is trying to get a hold of me, but I can’t peel myself out of my recliner quickly enough to answer it. Checking caller ID, it’s my nephew. Returned the call; left a message. My nephew calls back telling my they’re getting ready to pull the plug on his sister/my niece. WHAT??????????????? I had no idea she was anywhere near that bed. I know she’s been sickly most of her life but NO ONE let me know she was anywhere near death. I told J_ to whisper in her ear before they let her go to tell her, “Uncle Caroll loves you” (mega tears).
My health by the numbers:
Stress related readings, I have to imagine.
Call into niece; call into brother about S_.
Toby and I out for a bit of a troubling, late morning, 30min walk. He found a couple of tasty morsels. I let him finish the one, but when he started the 2nd one, I gave him the voice command, “Bring it!” He KNOWS what that means and how to handle it. He’s done it many times previously. Today, he chose to ignore me, which put him on the retractable for a while. It was too cold on my hands to handle him, my walking stick AND aluminum can bag, so I let him off the retractable.
*cloudy, cold, no breeze.
When I got home, R_ and L_ were there. I visited briefly, but had to get moving.
Return trip to Dillons because I’m a forgetful old man.
Leftover pork, corn and potatoes from last night.
My niece, Shannon Reimer, has died.
*WOW! Mannaz/Divine structure, Ar/challenges eased!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My niece K.R. went off on me on Fb. I mean it REALLY heated up on Fb messenger. Evidently, she totally supports my former and most evil christian brother. It seems he told my niece lies to support his position on walking away from the family by telling my sister that WE pushed him away. I tried to tell her he walked away, but she would hear nothing of it. She believes her mother who believed my former and most evil christian brother. More christian arrogance. I won’t be speaking to her anymore unless she comes to her senses.
