Mercury’s retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry. However, this is an excellent time to reflect on the past. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary. (Or things just start ‘happening’ for no reason…..)
I was telling people on Facebook how my day has had it’s ups and down. A pal who is a psychic (it says spiritual as occupation) said it sounded like I was being affected by the Mercury retrograde which is occurring for the next several days.
I woke up not feeling well, so not sure if it was sinuses or a cold. I’ve been ‘deep’ cleaning a lot, so I’m thinking it’s the dust factor. I’m glad I digging deep, but it happens almost every time.
I had a few knocks on the door-good stuff was delivered!
First from my friend Angela from NY
So pretty and perfect for the autumn!
The Fed Ex came and these Peruvian Lilies were from my mom. I had sent her some and they lasted a long time.
Sean wanted to take me out to lunch and I had a Livingsocial.com voucher that would fit the bill. It was a British Tea Room over in Delaware.
We were a wee bit late and Sean was like deer in headlights. There were mostly women, but a few teenagers who ogled him like he was a teeny bopper singer. : )
We both had Christmas teas. I had like a coconut, vanilla and Sean had a chocolate mint.
I had to order the ‘High Tea’ as part of the voucher. I had an entire pot of tea plus this and a salad.
egg salad, chicken salad and cucumber tea sandwiches on the lower tier; Cherry scone and a sausage biscuit in the middle and dessert-mostly pumpkin enhanced. I shared many of these with Sean who had a salad, egg salad, pasta salad and fruit salad.
That cellphone would prove to be the first mercury retrograde of the day. More later.
He looks thrilled, doesn’t he?
Look, another guy Sean!
There were a few geocaches found. It’s fun with Sean. The first one was behind the shopping center where we had lunch. We went up a little hill near a ball field. There was a cement barrier. We saw it inside a log!
We got gas and there was one near the lamp post-ha ha.
We decided to go to Kmart. Brian needs new clothes now. I got him a shirt and jeans and a few other things. I had left my phone in the car to charge up and I went to look at it and it was completely dead. I can usually get it to start up again. We had saved our tea and Sean had gotten a drink from Subway (for his dinner as he has class) and I had to hold the now lukewarm tea. Brian called twice on Sean’s phone and the second time he threw it at me and the tea went all over the mat (my car). It had a lid on it too. So I drove home with my feet up. It only got wet around the edge of the rug.
We went out to dinner as I had gotten a birthday pack with assorted, mostly restaurant coupons, so I picked (www.birthdaypack.com) a place down in Hockessin, DE. I ordered a Denver steak, medium well and it came almost black on the outside and mostly red on the outside. I complained and I got my wine for free.
I came home and plugged my phone in and it started to reboot (I had even called T-Mobile and was told to get a new battery). I did order the battery anyway.
On top of all that I am just plain grouchy-I really tried not to be too.
I’m waiting for Sean to come home from class to have cake.
Got a call from my brother Ken and niece Tori, so that made me feel better.
It’s been an interesting day for sure!
Wow, Dianne, that was one active birth day! Glad you enjoyed it.
Happy Birthday Dianne!!!! I like to celebrate all week when it is my birthday so you have a few more days to go!!! 🙂
Such beautiful flowers you received for your birthday and I love the looks of that tea room you and Sean went to! I can well imagine how he felt, though, being the minority in the tea room! LOL Steve has come with me a couple of times to tea rooms and it surprises me because he’s such a macho guy but then he loves food and they serve food, so….hehe So sorry to hear that there were a few mishaps that day but at least it didn’t ruin your special day:-) xoxo
