See? With the threat of an alarm, I’m LUCKY to get six-hours of sleep.
Without it I CAN get 8-hours.
Frouwa and Ing-Frô :
Frouwa, most lovely of all goddesses; who could not love you? Women as their own inner glory and highest attainment as the self-made woman, men for your beauty, passion and strength. Praise to you for the gift of life, and for the love that makes life worth living. Remind us always that it is the strong who love the best and the most, and that only the mighty can truly be gentle. Fill our lives with passion and lust that we may live our lives to the fullest. WE GIVE YOU MOST A HEART-FELT HEIL, FROUWA, as we honor the Frouwa that resides in us all!
Ing-Frô , you’re the Great God of Fridu (all-encompassing safety and protection), Ar (peace, good seasons), the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the god of this World. When the day to day wears us down remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing-Frô, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HEIL, ING-FRÔ, as we honor the Ing-Frô that resides in all of us!

Born of fire, born of ice

AM Elder Rune: Isa (irreversible): Ice: dormancy: a calming, reflective
influence, stilling effect: self-control: the concentrated self: ego, das Ich
(the unified, whole, principle or force), the composite plurality of Ich, be
still and gain control of the Self (in all its forms): grounding, a lowering of
vibration levels, and the loss of momentum.

Born of fire, born of ice

The fourth one I know, when a foe has tied up
My arms and hands;
The fetters fall from my leg, when I chant that song,
And off my hands the ropes come.
That which is offered, freedom, Wodanic energies, leadership, mouth, speech,
the effort to convince, deed following the word, the Divine Breath, kingship,
discussion, idea of that which is given/evolving, the spiritual power that is
gained through speech, it is the breath of the world, its voice, strength that a
person needs to rise up in power, freedom from the bondage of the material world.
Interpretation: Gaining control of the Self (Isa) leads to freedom (Os).
Outcome: 56F/19C makes for a BEAUTIFULLY cool morning. It’s amazing for late
July, but summer soon returns to Oz.
Toby was well-behaved on his 1-mile walk.
*Essie on her tether. See? Cooler temps equate to a more active, attentive Essie.
Forgot about the Safelite http://www.safelite.com/ guy coming to fix the chip in my windshield. McDs can wait for a bit
1st breakfast, but I’ll never again buy those frozen breakfast sandwiches…YUCK
A shameless plug for Safelight; they are the BEST! They KNOW customer service. I know of no other who will come to where you are to fix or replace windshields.
Finished the “Gods and Meditations” page http://www.irminenschaft.org/
Two loads of laundry
Socks’ Cat House was in need of a bit of attention.
Met the new neighbors to the west. They’re a young couple with children. I
sincerely hope that’s not a recipe for disaster.
In Heathen Community World-wide on Facebook, I think I’ve had the most
pleasant experience in the Internet. An Urglaawe author I respect greatly
violated our group description and I called him on it. He vehemently apologized
to me AND the community, then offered to share the link of the community on his
other Internet sites as “as part of the Schild” offering. What an AMAZINGLY
Lunch at Old Chicago http://www.oldchicago.com/index.php
*BBQ Bacon Cheddar Burger http://www.oldchicago.com/food/burgers/bbq-bacon-cheddar-burger/wichita-old-town with spicy fries…YUM!
*shot that gift card…thank you so much, Krissi!
Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market for pet food
Dillons for most things
Aldi if needed
Excellent visit from my Mt Hope Brother! We had a chance to get down to some
good conversation, and to give him a couple of carboys, along with some recipes,
to aid his home brewing efforts.
I had planned on Jamie being here but she’s come down ill with…something
The garden is starting to produce. Beet never took off. Peas were slightly
disappointing, but produced something. Tomatoes and sweet peppers…oh yeah!
Essie actually did the thunder-paws run from stern to stem, and was ready to go outside on her tether to tussle with Socks…amazing!
Essie tops off the evening with some long overdue hyper activity. Nighty-night!

PM Meditation: Saga, you’re the goddess of history; part and parcel of our ever expanding past. As we share in Minnatranc, whisper to our hearts of the stories about our gods, our ancestors, our heroes and their glories. Be the resource for our memories should we ever forget from whence we come. Gently remind us that we all have a rich history from which to pull. For it is as we remember and respect the past can we deal with our present, knowing that we will some day have to deal with our spiritual debt. We honor you, Saga, as a repository for the basis of all that we are, all that we are coming to be, and all that our offspring will inherit from us. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT
HEIL, SAGA, as we honor the Saga that resides in us all.
