(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You are motivated to get a lot done at work today with the Sun-Mars conjunction activating your 6th House of Employment. The cluster of planets in futuristic Aquarius encourages you to set pragmatism aside and take a risk for what you want. And although you might not be seeing everything clearly now, it’s smarter to trust your intuition and do what makes sense to you rather than wasting your energy trying to persuade others to share your point of view.
It’s no secret that I love my Rick Levine horoscopes (even though I’m not sure if I’m a Virgo or a Leo these days…) because I find them eerily fitting to my current life.
Or perhaps I’m just eerily hopeful that the good ones will pan out for my day!
After Max’s Bar Mitzvah I took a few days to recover (OY!) Well, who wouldn’t need to recover from THIS?
Knitting note: For those who enjoy Candace Eisner Strick’s work, her
sister, Judith (on violin) is the leader of this Klezmer band, Klezmorim.
And as soon as my recovery seemed complete, Max came down with a croupy cough (he’s prone to those) while leaped to me, then to Hannah, and then to Gerry.
Max is great now, he’s gearing up for a weekend retreat with his B’nai Mitzvah class where they will discuss the facts of life. We joke that it’s going to be two days of guilt training.
Hannah’s well enough to go to school after 2 sick days. It’s the start of the semester and she LOVES her classes and hates to miss them. Besides, today’s a half day, so it gives her a chance to touch base, pick up assignments, then return home and rest for a few days. She does seem much better, just tired.
Gerry’s hit hard – he’s sleeping right now, and missed his photoshop class last night (he’s training with the hope of finding work doing web video stuff, it’s through a program for disabled Minnesotans).
And me? Well, any chance my lungs have for a bender is all they need to go nuts for a week. Laying down is insanely hard, sitting up is tiring, but complaining makes it ALL BETTER. Wah, wah, wah.
Seriously, though, I’ve been getting a lot of swatching & pattern writing work done, which is great! I can’t show images of my sketches because they’re currently in contention for some mag issues, but I’d love to share some of the swatch highlights…
