Best I’ve seen by Stephen Alvarez’
During my nap today.
I dreamed I was in my house.
Everything was in place and clean.
When I woke their was all kinds of furniture, dishes, clothes in the front room. The exterminator was spraying a huge bird that had flown in.
He fell to the floor and I noticed he was so beautiful,
a phoenix bird.
To dream of a phoenix stands for rebirth and eternal life. It may also indicate a past that continues to haunt you.
I immediately started reviving him so I could free him.
I told the men to leave because I had animals and did not want the poisonous sprays getting into there tiny lungs.
I also told them to take all that furniture and stuff with them.
Rhea,Matt and I with the cats,dogs and other people’s babies were there.
The clock said 1 AM but it was really 6:30 AM.
Rhea to lower her music or I would have her evicted. She was looking around and saying “what did you do with this and where is my little trinkets ?”
I told her I did nothing with her stuff which in my dream I had not.
The dog was writhing and howling in pain, the cats were all crying and babies were screaming.
That is when we noticed the brown paper layers that were in front of a unique shelving. We began tearing them off one by one and nothing was there but empty shelving.
All our crystals and keepsakes gone.
The dog died and froze.
I was holding on to Minnie but she wanted down.
A lady was sitting in a chair and said what the heck is that and turned it upside down.
Babies still alive, but dying fell on the floor screaming, covered in scorpions and spiders.
That is when we first saw the crawlers, the poisonous spiders, red tipped scorpions that kill with one sting.
They were everywhere as if someone had came in and released them too do their deathly deeds.
I was awakened suddenly by Shy Cat howling in a way I had never heard before.
A forlorn, cry. Than total silence.
I got up to check on him, my cats and birdies.
I made coffee.
I can not sleep now.
I have been drinking lots of water. I went to bed at 1.
Did not watch anything craze on TV before sleeping.
Dreams of Spiders:
To dream of a spider denotes that you are being ignored and overlooked by others. Perhaps you feel that it is best to avoid someone or something that will only influence you negatively. The spider also represents female strengths and intensity. It may be implying that there is some entity trying to keep you safe from your own actions. If you kill a spider, it indicates that you will soon face hardships and obstacles.
To see a spider spinning a web implies that your energies and exertions will result in great gifts. This can be in the form of career advancement, elevation in social status, or prosperity. Spiders represent imagination and artistic nature.
On a negative note, spiders may suggest that you feel stuck in a negative relationship. Perhaps your significant other is being too dependent on you. It can indicate that you are being influenced by someone or something that is detrimental to your happiness or safety.
To see a spider climbing up a wall in your dream implies that you will achieve your goals in the near future.
To dream that you are bitten by a spider symbolizes an issue between you and a female associate. You may be feeling entangled in a relationship that you no longer want to be a part of.
To dream of a scorpion signifies an experience that has caused you great pain or grief. It may also indicate insensitive and resentful words or thoughts that an enemy holds about you. Your dream warns that you may be treading into a territory that can only bring you sorrow and loss. The scorpion symbolizes change and a new beginning. It may be necessary for you to discard previous beliefs and ideals and adopt new ones. Also, the scorpion may be a symbol of a person who was born under the Scorpio zodiac sign.
To see scorpions floating in water signifies that you must resign yourself to the fact that an event or situation has indeed occurred and cannot be changed. There is a possibility that you are experiencing the stages of grief and learning to continue on with your life.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,200 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
Merry meet and Merry part and Merry meet again.The dance of life’s intricate moves are more pleasing since I have you for my friend.
I did my RUNE reading the other day.
As the UNKNOWABLE card says it is a beginning, it is a end.
Perhaps a new beginning and an end to the way things were.
I AM in the moment and nothing can keep me from the experience of making an effort in understanding another human being.
And learning what I need to learn.
The last Rune card I faced up was “The Unknowable”
This card is the blank card…Blank is the End, Blank is the beginning.
This card rises like the Phoenix from the ashes of what we call fate.
The card says that a willingness and permitting are what is required~the empty-handed Leap into the void.
So, as my day continues I remain open to the possibilities, I also remain open to the realizations that THIS MOMENT is good.
And this is the Only Moment !
That undeniable force that makes you realize no matter how down you get that there is always a sun that will come out. It is there to brighten our days. Even when it rains we know that perhaps a rainbow will show through the clouds and the air will seem fresher after the storm.
Occasionally issues are Under the carpet, brushed aside so too speak.
The Time to face the reality of a through cleansing.
The carpet has been lifted and the multitudes of debris is being cleared.
I actually did do under the rugs today when I vacuumed and it was amazing the things I found.
Yesterday I went to a Celebration of Life event and was surrounded by the most wonderful persons.
I made new friends of like mind and it made me think of something I had written way back in 2004.
If I could think of just one something I would like to have right at this moment it would be a like minded companion.
Someone that has grown through there previous relationships and also at the same time learned from them.
This is most important.
If you haven’t learned the lesson the lesson will keep coming over and over until at some point you say ahha. I got it. By George I think I got it.
I wish I understood what in the heck I am doing.
My feelings flip faster then pancakes.
I love Full Moons
This year it falls on the 25 th of December.
Winter solstice is on December 22 2015.
It is an astronomical phenomenon marking the shortest day and the longest night of the year. Winter solstice occurs for the Northern Hemisphere in December and for the Southern Hemisphere in June.
It is called the Full Cold Moon
The full moon hasn’t fallen on Christmas Day since 1977.
Some of My Deco’s
A poem I wrote several years ago.
Christmas isn’t JUST about receiving gifts
It’s in the Giving of our Time and gifts from the Heart
A tin full of homemade cookies
A decorated jar of homemade bath salts to sooth someone’s weary bones
A phone call to let someone know you’re thinking of them
The Spirit of the Holidays should be everyday
No one is guaranteed tomorrow
Seven out of 10 Americans are one paycheck away from being homeless.
Be Thankful for each and every blessing
Keep your stress levels low and evenly balanced by being focused and positive
Shelter from the heat and cold
Food in our tummies
Music too sooth us
Animals (Especially Cats) to love and cherish
Love, Health and a Bit of Abundance
with Time to Enjoy

I have been on a mission to find a healthy choice for my oldest cat Minnie. She was a petite cat at 11 months when I adopted her. Very few health incidents other than a fairly bad Upper respiratory infection a few years ago. She has lost all her large canine teeth.
Minnie will be 13 in February. She’s my heart.
Adoption Day (11 Months old Feb 2004)
Before China she was getting Fat (2011)
Minnie at 12 years of age
China, my youngest having found at my door step 4 years ago is a very robust, beautiful coat and literally will eat anything she finds. She especially likes dust bunnies
China at 4 years of age
The problems with Minnie started around the same time as China’s arrival. Stress related IBS.
Can you imagine having the runnies every day for all these years?
I have been keeping a journal on my mission.
She seems much improved.
No wet food for three days and I notice with just the Science diet for sensitive stomachs she has less runnies and not as many crying scenes nor vomiting.
Than I read that it is one of the worse foods for a cat.
So my research is back in full swing.
Anything that will help my Minnie.
I tend to favor products that are made in our country (USA)
8:56 AM 10/23/2015
Vomited this am.
Feeding more often but less at each feeding.
2:25 AM 10/25/2015
Pudding Plop Puddles = Runnies and crying
She is very fastidious and never leaves any messes for me to clean up.
EXCEPT IN THE LITTER BOX
7:28 PM 11/2/2015
Minnie seems to be doing a bit better, she still weighs barely 10 pounds.
8:12 AM 11/6/2015
She loves the Natures Variety.
Licks the bowl clean and isn’t demanding to be fed constantly.
The BEST Canned Foods for your Cat
Top brands that I use include
Tiki Cat – the kinds with NO FISH
Hound and Gatos
Soulistic, some grain free Wellness and some Merrick Pate Perfect Bistro.
Please note that not all of these are carrageenan free, and most have BPA in the can linings.
This is my go too when funds do not allow the quality foods I have starred here
Nature’s Logic – All canned formulas
From “Four Star” Grain-Free
Newman’s Own Organics Grain-Free Canned Cat Food – All “grain-free” varieties
Note: The “Newman’s Own Organics” non grain-free formulas DO have both carrageenan and guar gum
The Name of this Destructive scenario is Politics and Power ~ Fictitious Media reports propagate Fear in the
majority of persons ~ Those with the darkest imaginations have the most Power.
The War on Terror~The Fear of a Future with impending Doom, an imagined Future.
There was No weapons of mass destruction in IRAQ.
There were no secret caves of elaborate resources in Afghanistan.There was no Al-Qaeda before 9-11.
The Wars began.
Which resulted in an overwhelming loss of humankind.The Killing massacre of innocent children and persons fighting for their beliefs.
You never see any Politicians, Priests, Popes or otherwise religious entities in the War Zones. Ever thought about that ? They make The Rules don’t they ?
9-11. What do you believe ?
Who was really responsible ?
Do you have Faith in our Government ?
This a must see. You may believe differently afterwards.
How did we get on this subject ? Vintage is the one thing I would desire too spend money on.
Remember what is new too you today will be worth some bucks in a Vintage Way years from now.
At any rate. The subject came up because a person posted a photo of his self with his appendage draped across a towel. He advertised it as a towel Holder for females only.
Seriously, I do not recall how we jumped on these two conversations.
I really thought it was a towel holder and wondered why he hadn’t given it to my daughter instead of selling it ?
In the meantime I hung Halloween witches, ghosts, pumpkins, and skeletons. Three of the plastic cats have already fallen.
Put catnip on the fake dog and mouse that is the size of Hempy and China was in fear for her life.
Guess she favors a real cat attack.
Since having my bike repaired I am able to ride and enjoy. Today was Day 1 of my plan to get my stamina built up for the Zombie Ride on the 25 th of this month.
This was my 30 minute ride today.
