We found a HOUSE!

Well, we found a new place... a 3 bedroom, 2 bath 1200+ square foot trailer sitting on just over 6 acres out in the country. Sits between Uhland & Maxwell, altho the ZIP is still Kyle. Nice little driveway as the home is set a ways off the road, and driveway is lined with white picket fence & lights. The front deck has room for plants, chairs, etc and will catch the rising sun. Sits almost oriented East/West. Morning sun comes up on what will be the art space/study and the sun will set over the master bedroom. The master bedroom/bathroom is at one end, complete with spa tub & seperate shower enclosure. The kitchen/dining nook and the living room seperate the other 2 bedrooms from the master bedroom. The center room will be the guest room, when we HAVE a guest. Spirit has a nice antique bedroom set in storage, so we'll set that up. And, since we do not have guests all THAT often, it will serve mainly as a room for Lizzie, Agathos, and the Bearded Dragon that will be a…

Heaven's on Fire

I look at you and my blood boils hot, I feel my temperature rise
I want it all, give me what you got, there's hunger in your eyes
I'm getting closer, baby hear me breathe
You know the way to give me what I need
Just let me love you and you'll never leave
Feel my heat takin' you higher, burn with me, Heaven's on fire
Paint the sky with desire, angel fly, Heaven's on fire
I got a fever ragin' in my heart, you make me shiver and shake
Baby don't stop, take it to the top, eat it like a piece of cake
You're comin' closer, I can hear you breathe
You drive me crazy when you start to tease
You could bring the devil to his knees
Oho Heaven's on fire, oho Heaven's on fire, oho
I'm getting closer, baby hear me breathe
You know the way to give me what I need
Just let me love you and you'll never leave

Agathos update, Jayce w/SMPD

Well, Agathos has had his mouse July 10th before arriving home, and weighed in at 1.8 ounces and 18 inches long. His next meal will be Saturday, after which we will weigh and measure again. :-)
Tonight is the Central Texas Pagan Meetup dinner @ Cedars Cafe in San Marcos... Agathos will be our guest at dinner, altho don't expect much in the way of conversation. He must have been tired still this morning as he yawned a couple of times while I was journalling (he was wrapped around my non-writing wrist).
Son went w/his cousin Jason on a "ride along" with San Marcos PD last night. He was not yet home when Spirit and I turned in @ 11pm, and still fast asleep when we awoke @ 4:30am (well, d'oh!) so I have no idea how it went. More on that later....
Still waiting to get w/son to see if he is off this weekend to see if we can go visit with Granny & Granddad this weekend sometime…

Hoobastank "Right Before Your Eyes"

Well, heard this song again on my way to work this morning... it was still poignant (Profoundly moving; touching) so I thought I would post it here today::
"Right Before Your Eyes"
When the door shuts
Don’t worry about me
Its not attention that I want from you
I need you to trust who I’m gonna be
And in everything I’m going to do
Cause I’m not afraid
Of what I don’t know
For understanding is all that I earn
What is for sure is I’m gonna to go
I’m gonna to live and I’m going to learn
And I know there will be mistakes that I will make
But I know they’re not worse than chances I don’t take
Right before your eyes I am changing, changing
New life on the inside I am changing, changing
When the door shuts
Its shuts in front of me
A new person that I have become
I follow my heart to my destiny
But living in fear and sorrow is done
There will be no more feeling that I’m all alone
I will surround myself with things that help me grow, grow
Right before your eyes I am changing, changing
New life on the inside…

newest member comes home!

Well, Agathos has arrived home!! Spirit picked him up yesterday whilst I was home ill.We named him after the Egyptian protector God of Alexandria, whose sanctuary was apparently founded by Alexander himself. The oldest evidence for his cult is a passage from the Potters' Oracle (130 BC) where Agathos Daimon is identified with the primeval snake Kneph. For the rest, the cult was confined to Alexandria and is only known from the Roman Period. The worship of the Agathos Daimon as a protective house snake appears to have a Greek origin. Further, he mainly appears in Greek literature, known as Agathodemon. Agathos in Greek meant "Good" and Daimon meant "Divinity", and this creature was much like a guardian angel. Regarded as the "Good Divinity", Agathos Daimon was the guardian of the household or personal home, and in other accounts this creature guarded a person, hovering around them invisibly.

weekend tally

"headache two, family one" Well, sinus headache appeared early Sunday and a migraine snuck in underneath it, but we still mamanged to do things we had planned, so I count the weekend as a success. The evening got a bit dicey near the end, actually really ugly, but oh well. Poor Spirit, not sure she got ANY sleep, really, looking after me. Sigh. Migraine finally broke around 1am, but when your alarm goes off at 4:30am... UGH! We did get to the book group and MY! what a discussion that was... about a dozen goddess came to share their insights on the 2nd installment of "The Great Cosmic Mother." From there we went to drop off some work I was doing for the publisher (this one is a book titled "America Jane") up in N Austin. And, since we were so far north already, we went ahead and stopped in at ZooKeeper (Research & Burnet) to take a look at the latest arrivals... ball pythons, of course. Drooled on a few, then had to head home so we could hit Spi…
