  • adventuring: helping with a soccer tournament. maisie's riding up my mom's stair lift in my mom's lap
  • eating: ceviche. pork chops. steak. gluten-free pizza
  • watching: jesse stone: death in paradise. jesse stone: sea change. kingdom
  • reading: roz chast's can't we talk about something more pleasant?
  • listening to: rita emmett. elaine st. james
  • discovering: there is a summer camp for adults
  • thinking about: robin williams (and depression). the law of attraction. how weird it is that maisie's collar disappeared for 4-1/2 days and then turned up in a strange place
  • disliking: when the kooky guy on a bike (who had said this to us) saw maisie and said, "cute little skunk dog." when a library dvd is scratched and unwatchable. that maisie has an abrasion ulcer on her eye and is pretty miserable -- the cone of silence/cone of shame/satellite dish doesn't help (but my god, she is incredibly good-natured). check engine lights
  • laughing at: this cat wearing a shark costume while riding a roomba
  • loving: finding $3 on the street one day, $5 the next, $1 a couple days later. i swear this baby panda is smiling. when maisie curls up on me. that i have friends who are healers. this video of a puppy and baby

evil eye

today, my friend k, a healer and intuitive, made me take down my evil eye amulet, and then crush it with a hammer. we were talking about the law of attraction, and eye issues [more on that tomorrow], and she pointed out that the law of attraction is about focusing on what you want, not what you don't want (and that the eye represents protection against fear, harm, or lack, so it was attracting those things to me as i gave attention to it). so it just seemed right.
