DAY OF THANKS FOR MARCH 23

building man

LEO Jul 23 | Aug 22 According to the international code of food standards, there are 13 possible sizes for an olive. They include large, extra large, jumbo, extra jumbo, giant, colossal, super colossal, mammoth and super mammoth. If I had my way, Leo, you would apply this mindset to everything you do in the coming weeks. It’s time for you to think very big. You will thrive as you expand your mind, stretch your boundaries, increase your territory, amplify your self-expression, magnify your focus and broaden your innocence.

Its funny that this is my horoscope this time.

Last week I did a FaceBook post asking for construction help because I have finished the design/lay out of the 100 square foot home and I know where everything goes and what it looks like, but I don’t know how to make it structurally sound. This post helped me find my electrician. Solar panel teacher. Check.

I also reached out to a few graphic artistic friends and now my next “Toronto Art Installation” is moving forward to the design/production phase.

I just sent an email to this guy, Elton McDonald. I wonder if he might be the one to help me see if my home can stand…

Just Broken In – The prep work

Before you can build anything you have to get the land ready.

JB30First step is clearing out the energy and bringing it back to the beginning. I bought some Manitoba sweet grass at a little shop in Parkdale to use in my smudging ceremony and had my Indian friend Judy do the honours. .

jbi-june21-32Second step, make friends with your neighbours!

jbi-bday34Last thing I needed to deal with were the bears. I decided to put up a marker and let them know that they are welcome to walk across my land but they need to stay on there side. I may be reaching here but I figure it cannot hurt. I have also been going to the bathroom in a wide circle around my tent. Taking a page out for Never Cry Wolf and getting all animal up there. Loving it.

 

Medicine Man for May 9

Today I was going to talk about my results from the Natural Shampoo and Conditioner I was using. What I realized is that I don’t wash or condition my hair that often so in two weeks my sample size is too smallI to tell if this is right for me. What I can tell you is that it felt amazing. Different than regular shampoo and conditioner but definitely doing what they needed to.

Then I was going to tell you about my Oil Pulling results. Nothing to report here as it seems I don’t really do anything consistently. But again felt great and will add it to my life, on occasion.

Neither really motivated me to type last night so now what I am going to post today is something I did not see coming. I was in Kensington Market today and checked out my heart graffiti and to my awe I saw this. my kensington heart

The last time I saw them they looked like this.heartk5

Someone went there and cleaned up my hearts and added their own. I cannot even tell you how magical that was for my heart.

I’m so glad she found me for March 22

Last weekend I finished about 13 of these characters. The first post went up June 1st with the idea of introducing 1 a week but over the last 3 months I took a little break from the whole production so have missed a few Saturdays. Today thou, I am very happy to introduce to you 9 new neighbours!
