The newest additions to our home, 4 sweet Bantam Hens 🐔 named, from L - R in the first photo, Chiweenie (usually called Weenie Girl because she’s so little and shy), Boss Lady (technically called Athena, the smartest one), Hettie (what I’ve always wanted to name a hen) and Ditto (gives no F’s about anything, punk, named after Beth Ditto)
Ditto has laid 3 eggs so far, one for each day we’ve had them! The others are still a little skittish, Hettie likes to complain about nearly everything, but Ditto sincerely cares about nothing, is totally fearless and likes to walk right up to me and look me in the eye like she’s teasing me with her soft fluffy feathers.
We’re also hoping to add some chicks soon!
I’ve been sitting with them every day, just loving watching and listening to them. They’re so funny to spend time with!
Using my Week Ahead Spread for 4/16 - 4/22 ❤️ reading available in the shop here - https://etsy.me/2HEXPNQ
What to focus on:
Love | Compassion
It’s easy to feel frustrated during communications when you can’t quite seem to get on each other’s wavelength, or when little misunderstandings or hurts happen. During moments of crossed wires, I need to focus on the intention, the desire to connect, to communicate, to share. Focusing on Love brings it into clearer focus with greater clarity, and soothes the heart.
Music | Harmony
I’ve been feeling some pretty major emotional burnout recently, and I need to remember that it’s healthier to retain my own sense of self and support from there, playing my own instrument along with others, than it is to pick up others instruments and try to play them for them, depleting myself. When I let myself get burnt out, not only do I have to remedy that, but I’m also not as helpful to others.
Whale | Breach
This seems like a really odd thing to increase at first, but what I’m getting is a message of recalibration and following my instincts, even if they don’t seem logical. I do also need to focus on taking care of myself though - sometimes I get so focused on doing something that I might not realize it’s not the best thing for me personally.
Lesson of the Week:
Rain | Purification
It’s time to start releasing, washing away what doesn’t fit for me.
Today marks 2 years of marriage with the most wonderful soul I’ve ever been blessed to meet 💞 it feels like just yesterday and like forever all at once, and I can’t imagine anyone I’d rather spend each day with than you, sweet Pip.
