It’s our one year Homeversary!
The clouds and sky made a pretty show for us yesterday at sunset. Getting into this place one year ago, coupled with becoming a host home provider for Lillian in February 2020, meant the world to my emotional and physical health.
November 2019 was the tipping point for me, and I’m deeply blessed and grateful to everyone who helped us along the way the previous ten years. Because of these two events I was able to take 2020 as a year of rest and reset.
My body, mind, and heart were wasted after about 13 years of focusing on healing, with struggling financially. I am feeling so much better! Hallelujah!!!! I’m ready to rejoin society! 🤣😂 … As soon as society is able to reopen! 😂🤣 … Oceans of love to all of you!! ❤️❤️❤️

“I Will Survive” – Gloria Gaynor …. Love!!! One of my favorite songs! 🎶🖤🎶
A beautiful 2020 sparkling pink lemonade with vegan “cheesecake” topped with homemade cherry sauce. We celebrated on New York time so I’m off to bed. Last dreams of 2020 and first dreams of 2021. See y’all next year! 🖤🎉🖤

Rosey got to celebrate too! She got a great bubble bath!! Ahhhh!! She’s shiny now!! (I’m not sure what we were celebrating, but YAY for celebrating!
I agree with you Rachel Jane Flower … A cold swim is invigorating, refreshing, and gets the creative juices flowing. Had an amazing swim and then came home and created a yummy dinner! Rice pasta with butter sautéed chicken and shiitake mushrooms with leftover pumpkin soup drizzled on top. Yum!!

So that Lillian could see the rare double planet conjunction before it’s gone, we opened a couple of gifts this morning. She got astronomy binoculars with a tripod stand. These are the hugest binoculars I’ve ever seen! We can see the trees on Mt Rose!!
I needed time to figure it all out before the rarity is finished! 🤣😂 Thomas got a brand new phone. He’s always used hand me down phones, and his was about to completely die! Yay!!! 💚💚💚🎄🎄🎄❤️❤️❤️
Huge binoculars!!! I’ve got to get the tripod set up so we can adjust the focus. They’re hard to hold completely still with your hands. Lillian definitely wouldn’t be able to hold them. We’re so excited to see the moon and the Christmas star!! I researched pros and cons between astrology binoculars and telescopes, and decided these would be better for her. 🌚 ✨ 🪐
Lillian has wanted a telescope for about 5 or 6 years. I’m thrilled to be able to finally get her something to look closer at the planets and stars! You can find some great articles online comparing the two. Honestly, I needed something I could figure out, also. I haven’t had much luck with telescopes!!

Tonight Lillian was showing me the Fairy Book of Jobs. I asked her if she thought they needed a Reiki Fairy. She said “Yes” and told me my next step is to write down that I’d like to be a Reiki Fairy and turn it into one of the teachers at The Fairy College. They will get back to me. Lillian said that would be a really good thing there. She also said she may see me there later as she is going to the Fairy Library and it is at the college. Hope y’all have some sweet dreams on that note!! HA!!! xoxo

December 2020 Note: Lillian was 12 years old when this happened. For quite some time, every night while she slept she visited Fairy Land. That’s what this conversation was about. Such sweet, sweet, memories!

Just back from a swim. This is the first time I’ve ever had access to an outdoor, year-round, heated pool. (YAY!!!) The water felt amazing, heated to 80 degrees currently. We’ll see if I can keep it up as the temperature drops. 💙 💦 🏊♀️ 💦💙

This manual sweeper is in the top ten of best purchases. Lillian and I split the cost of this so that she could help clean the mess she leaves behind after eating.
Some of my C18 friends will understand. She doesn’t have lip closure, and has issues with sitting close to the table, leaving lots of crumbs and bits on the floor. Another win for both of us!! Go Lillian!! 🎉🎉🎉 And, yay for me!! 🎉🎉🎉

Spotted this morning. Before Lillian came into my life, I don’t think I would have ever been as observant of shadows. She’s the Shadow Whisperer, and has taught me much. 🖤❤️🖤
