The laundry leaching pit is still not draining and splashing back into the house slightly. I managed to do a small wash though. While doing the dishes this morning I discovered the new kitchen faucet seems to be leaking slightly, as a circle of dried water was inside the cabinet. Add that to the moving porcelain floor tiles and cracking grout, and guess what we are going to be doing for holidays? Yup, trying to get the contractor to fix things, only 2.5 months after he did the work.
I try not to be discouraged, but honestly it made me feel so bad. I have a lot of pain, and I had my green drink and fish oil, vitamins, then fed the pets and we are all draped over the sunporch enjoying the light while I read an old Colin Dexter Inspector Morse mystery. I had a jasmine tea, my refuge of heat and flowers.
I’m not going to get upset, I’m not going to wish I was dead because some contractor wasn’t perfect. Everybody has things happen in life, we must all cope.
VII HORSE – Spirit of Freedom (The Chariot)
The moon in the sky reminds me of cycles, moving, turning, clouds coming and going, air and intellect and worry, but most of all flying and freedom. “Power, balance, alignment, control” sayeth the book. “Horse advises clarity, confidence, and self-control.” Stay focused on the goal, no need to force. (Be kind to your contractor, don’t yell at him and scream until your face is red!)
“Victory comes when all parts work together, united in a common flow.”
I am the vehicle that carries my soul through life. Nurture courage. Forge ahead with assurance. Let go – become master of your vehicle.
I needed that! I often think of The Chariot with regard to journeys, but this is my journey at the moment and there are lessons to be learned.
