Woo-woo Alert:

I read tarot cards for No.2 Sis yesterday. They said, “Pamper yourself, rest, take a bubblebath, curl up in front of the fire and relax!”

I read the cards for myself, and they said, “You lazy bum! Quit daydreaming and actually get something done! Get to work!”

It reminds me of something No.8 Sis’ girlfriend said to her recently. “Sweetie, you have such good ideas. Why don’t you do one?”

So No.8 Sis is building a guest-house in India.

My ambitions are a bit more low-key. I cleaned the whole house (except the art studio). Do you know how seldom the bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen and dining room are all clean at once?

If you read this blog, you know that the answer is “rarely”. It looks so nice!

So today I can just watch the snow fall…and fall…and fall… This winter storm Jaxon is hitting us right now. I don’t know when they started naming blizzards, but there ya go.

I’m also working on feng shuiing (totally a word) the wealth corner in my cottage. This is in lieu of getting a j-o-b.

The wealth area of the cottage is in the bedroom. There was a flying pig lamp in this corner, which suggests that I’ll be wealthy when pigs fly. This is doing feng shui badly.

I got a new (used) lamp at Lamp Mender, or as I like to call them, The Lamp Ladies, a store in Bloomington, MN.

I liked the shape, but not the color, so I painted it white with blue accents. Here it is in its new home by the bed.

Four coats, hand-painted. If I had gotten spray paint, it would have been done in a couple of coats. But where can you spray paint in an cottage apartment?

I charged some crystals for manifesting wealth (do I need another woo-woo alert?), and put some money in jewel box (The Taj Mahal Box) No.2 Sis brought me from India for my birthday.

I also hung a watercolor print of Ireland given to me by my BFF “T”. It doesn’t necessarily represent wealth, but I love it.

This is the first picture I’ve hung in the cottage. Don’t judge, I’ve only been here 9-and-a-half months!

The crystals are (top left to  bottom right) Quartz, Aventurine, Moss Agate, Black Tourmaline, and Citrine.

Let the wealth come pouring in.

Stay tuned…
