Signals, Symbols and Signs


So...aside from almost being killed by someone turning in front of me, with no signal light on, I've had a pretty good day. 

I managed to get plenty of work done at the office, eat a healthy lunch and there is now a strong possibility of a visit to the pub for "Wing Night" with the girls. 

And - as an added bonus I was treated to a 15 minute massage today when my boss brought in a shiatsu/massage practitioner to give the staff a little rub.  Yes - the people I work for are ridiculously cool.

We were asked to choose an essential oil that was dripped onto a sash that covered the massage chair for some aromatherapy benefits.  I immediately said "Rosemary" without even thinking, which was a surprise because it's not my usual scent of choice.  I figure I must have needed it though - and a quick check of it's magical properties and symbolism confirmed it: memory, health, love and protection.


Also - as a reminder from the Universe that all is in fact, not lost because of the intense heat and tourists - I have bright, happy Sunflowers opening up daily in the garden, a sure sign that Summer is not without it's rewards. 

 

Now...I think there are some ice cold rewards calling my name.....

I'm very happy you didn't get killed!! Eeek!

How do you get your sunflowers to look so awesome? Mine are being decimated by something, I don't know what... I see a lot of ants on them, but they don't appear to be eating them. *sigh* I'd love to figure out your secret!!

I'm glad you managed to avoid the idiot driver... They seem to be multiplying exponentially... Not so good.

Hope you had a great night at the pub! Woohoo for wings & beer! =D

Thanks! ^-^
I'm sure I'll have a good weekend. I don't mind cleaning so much, just when I slack off & let it pile up... Like I have been. Ah well... I can see my kitchen again, so I'm happy. Hope you have a good weekend too! ^-^

Jen-na-na - left you a note on your blog. The sunflowers are self-sowers. I let the birds pick at them all Autumn and I have more seedlings that I can handle in the Spring.

Debra - "the goddess Asphalta!" lol! She looks out for me alot during the crazy Summer tourist months!
