Rainbows and Dreams

No, that’s not my attempt at replacing the “champagne wishes and caviar dreams” quote from Robin Leech. Does anyone remember watching that show as a kid?

Anyway, I had a very cool, very vivid dream the other night.

I was standing on a tall building, high above the clouds. The building wasn’t a skyscraper, but more like an ancient ruin carved out of bleached-out red rock twisting itself into the clouds. The air was dense with humidity after a heavy rain and the sun was shining bright in an attempt to cut through the moisture in the air. Right where I was standing was the origin of a thick rainbow and I could reach down and touch it and feel its energy, which was calming and happy. I immediately started smiling. It was like putting my hand into warm, vibrating bubbles.

It’s rare for me to remember my dreams with much detail – the kind of detail that elicits and emotional response. So, when I do, I usually look into them because I feel like it’s my subconscious trying to tell me something. Sneaky subconscious! What I found is pretty cool!

To see a rainbow in your dream represents hope, success and good fortune in the form of money, prestige, or fame. The rainbow is also seen as a bridge between your earthly, grounded self and the higher, spiritual self. It refers to joy and happiness in your relationship. Alternatively, the rainbow implies that your troubles are almost over. Good will come out of your issues. Just hang in there.

Consider me hanging!


I’m Moving

Someday. Seriously.

While on our little weekend away on the western slope of Colorado, Sally and I took the most amazing drive to see the fall colors and scenery. As usual, the pictures don’t do it justice.

The sun was shining down so intensely, which explains the odd rays of light on all of the pictures. It was one of those days that makes you so happy you’re alive. Someday I will live in this area. Mark my words.

Herman the Cabbage Man

I was in this shop the other day and happened upon one of the freakiest things I’ve ever seen.

See what I mean? That’s Herman the Cabbage Man. The fact that he’s so freaky also makes him supremely awesome. I wish I had my dream sunroom right now, cuz I’d buy that little weirdo and hang him on the wall. And if you think I’m kidding, well, you just don’t know me all that well.

5 things I’m loving right now

So, this past weekend was pretty busy. I was WAY low energy last week (part of detoxing/cleaning out the old body), but after an acupuncture session on Friday, my energy returned and I was able to be pretty busy this weekend. The manfriend’s mom comes into town tomorrow night and her visit has provided just the kick in the pants we needed to clean up the house and yard.

  1. A clean basement! It’s needed an overhaul for quite some time.
  2. Getting my hands back in the earth. I cleaned out a few of my flower beds and it felt good to be out in the brisk morning air.
  3. Super clean floors! I often sweep, but this time I was down on my hands and knees going for it.
  4. Game of Thrones. We just started watching the first season this weekend and love it. The Song of Fire and Ice series are some of my favorite books ever. I’m waiting until Martin is done, done, done with the series and then I’ll read them all over again. Anyone know if there’s supposed to be six or seven books total?
  5. An afternoon with my nephew Ayuba creating a cool mother’s day gift. I can’t give you more details or it’ll ruin the surprise!

A little redecorating around these parts

My bedroom used to look like this:

But I decided, after three years of living with it, that the red wall had to go. I wanted something more cooling, peaceful, calm. So now my bedroom looks like this:

Not much changed in the room other than the wall color and yet I feel like there’s been a big change. That’s the beauty of paint. It’s a relatively affordable, sometimes quick (ha) way to make a big change.

What do you guys think of the color change?

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
