My tarot reader said that I need to take care of myself this month and she was right. April was not a good month for me and my health suffered as well. Mercury in retrograde really didn’t help! She said that I would feel fatigued in May, so I am heeding her advice.
I’m very tempted to agree to any fun shenanigans that come my way, but I know that if I don’t schedule my activities wisely, I’ll find myself drained. For now, I putting off making any future commitments until Thursday, when Mercury is no longer in retrograde. I’ve already have a June deadline coming up and May is the busiest month of the year at work. I don’t need more on my plate!
What I have been putting on my plate are a lot of vegetables for lunch. Yesterday had brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Today I had Chinese broccoli, regular broccoli, and carrots. It’s not very exciting, but it leaves room for more interesting food for the rest of the day.
When I got home, I had a slice of rhubarb pie with Greek yogurt.
¾ cup maple sugar
3 cups chopped rhubarb stalks
1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
2 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoon cornstarch
2 pie crusts
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Mix sugar, rhubarb, strawberries, flour and starch together.
- Put into pie crust. Cover pie with second crust and seal edges. Cut holes to let steam out.
- Bake for at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.
Over rhubarb pie, I took a cold, hard look at my resources.
Financially and emotionally, I’m doing fine. Last month’s expenses and communication issues were abnormal, so I’m not worried about that.
The one thing I am lacking in is my mental capabilities. I’m not processing things as quickly as I used and need to work on improving my intellect. As much as I don’t want to admit it, I think I need to exercise my academic brain more. That means spending less time reading fluffy news articles that provide vague, inaccurate information about the world and reading more stuff written by experts in the field.
