The Man of My Dreams

This man, this lovely, happy man, is my father. The man of my dreams, except that he certainly wasn’t a dream, but real. I can hardly describe my father, today, 20 years and some odd months after his death.  I only know that each day that comes, I think of something my dad would say…

Soul Despair

For once in my life, I am not reacting to what I am seeing on the news or the internet. I can’t. I just cannot get my head around this much hate in the world. It is making me physically ill. When I learned Thursday that Rush Limbaugh died, I was saddened. He was someone…

The Lamb that Saved the Farm

This little girl (I think, more about that later) saved the farm yesterday. She made her appearance between 8:30 am and 12:00 and she floored The Shepherd with her markings. We’ve never had a lamb like this before, although last week Mandy did give us one gray/black baby ewe with black legs.  You can see…

Mercury Retrograde and I Can Tell

There’s all sorts of neat Mercury Retrograde things happening these days. Like we have this tractor. This tractor is OLD. It’s OLD as in it was made in 1955 or so. It’s a John Deere M 50 and it has needed a bit of work. Right now? It won’t start. It has been in the…

The Definition of Cute

These are the first two lambs born this season and the second two who were just born about a half an hour before this video was taken. I just can’t get over how they run around and are so alert within hours of birth! Raising these lambs is a heart ache, for both of us….

Art, Stars, Sheep, and CHEESE?

The art and the star part of this journal is getting short shrift. I promise to make it up in the near future. You might want to just relax until the 11th. There are some annoying aspects flying around up there now and after the 11th we should have a much easier time of it!…

Lambs Lambs Lambs

I figured out when we were supposed to start lambing this season. It’s not scientific, I just note the date our ram (Randy) won’t leave the girls alone. He had a bit of a rough time this year because we had several of his sons that were old enough to compete for the ewe’s attention….

We’re Having Baby Lambs

It’s started! I was a few days off in my 145 day calculation regarding the arrival of babies. I don’t do it scientifically. I just notice when Randy won’t leave the girls ALONE and I figure 145 days from that. He is a randy old ram! We raise our sheep on the “pretend they’re on…

Rise Up

I don’t have to tell you that this year has been ODD. Not just odd, but mind-blowing ODD. For me, it was doubly strange because I had a total knee replacement on the 17th of March. Now THAT was not only ODD, it was scary. I have had surgery a couple of times before this,…

A Day to Do Nothing

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. That is my plan for the day. Well, except laundry. I have two mountains of clothes to fold in the laundry room, which is ridiculous because there are only two of us. I have done laundry for a week but not folded it. If The Shepherd paid attention, he would be appalled….

Finding Truth

After the aggravation of the last few years (4 years), I have decided it is time for me to get back into my life and out of the world-confusion. My spiritual path has cliffs on it – I occasionally fall off. I’m climbing back on my path, just like my Capricorn symbol, the mountain goat….

OFF FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND MESSENGER!

I’m done. I’ve swallowed all the anger I’m going to swallow. I thought when this started, the day after the election in 2016, that they would eventually stop. They did not. They got worse. Now we have ABC News telling people Trump supporters need to be “cleansed.” I knew this would happen. I waited for…

The Day After

We all know what happened yesterday. Or we think we do. Personally, I have no clue who entered the capitol. Supposedly they were Trump supporters, but I’m not convinced. Most Trump supporters don’t dress in drag or wear weird paint on their bodies. Trump supporters are normal people. I do know someone was murdered. If…

Keep the World Out – It’s Not Real

It’s true. What you see as “The World” is just a projected set of incidents coming from the minds of the collective. Not the TRUE Cosmic Consciousness, but the little, small, petty, angry, hateful and disgusting minds of the humans alive in the world today. Don’t participate. That’s all. you can do. Don’t get caught…

Win the Lottery

Okay! Here it is folks! If you live in Maine, Massachusetts or New Hampshire you can win $410 Million as in DOLLARS! And if you live anywhere, you can win $410 Million in the powerball. Maybe you could win both. Years ago I played the lottery. I started buying tickets because every client I read…

When I Was Called Rachael

In 1987, I graduated from university. Finally, 18 years after I started. I thought that having a degree would help me get a job that was more of a career. You know, less direction and more directing? Well, that was a laugh. I got nothing after college, except disillusioned. I had intended on going to…

69 Years

Sixty-nine years ago, I made my first appearance in this incarnation. Whoa, what was I thinking, agreeing to this? It’s true, you know. We choose our life path, our lessons, our family. We aren’t thrown out into the world without first giving our opinion. I must have been feeling really guilty. I got a lot…

Stars and Sheep

It’s weird being a farmer’s wife AND a psychic. Especially since the farmer is a skeptic. He used to be more skeptical. I’ve shocked him a few times. I love when that happens. But if you are going to look at the stars, you may as well live somewhere where you can see them! Life…
