Phryne Fisher Friday

Happy Friday, my fellow dreamers. It's Friday, woo hoo. A perfect day to talk with you all about one of my favorite new shows.

It is the Phryne Fisher Mysteries on Netflix. It's a wonderful mystery series from Australia based on the books of the same name by Kerry Greenwood. Phryne (pronounced Fry-knee, to rhyme with briny) is rich, smart, elegant and witty. Even when she is covered with blood, she still manages to look stylish. The self described Lady Detective is a treat to watch. I haven't read the books, if the series is close to the books then they must be wonderful.

Essie Davis as Phryne is marvelous. I'm currently toward the end of season 1. Hoping Netflix will pick up season 2! She also has a close relationship with married Detective Inspector Jack Robinson played by the awesomely cute Nathan Page. They hint that he is not quite happy at home. This is set in the 1920's, I have no idea whether the two will get together. It's still fun to watch them glow on screen together.

Phryne is aided by the pretty and sweet Dot; along with Constable Collins who works under DI Robinson. There is now a sweet romance brewing between Dot and Constable Collins, as well.

Oh and the clothes!!

I'm loving this whole outfit.

This has to be one of my favorite's of Phryne.

Now, have I enticed you my friends. I do hope you give The Phryne Fisher Mysteries a go. You will adore the show like I have. Have a wonderful Friday.

Full Moon Beauty

Hello, my fellow dreamers.

I have to admit last night, I was feeling a bit restless. How about any of you? Perhaps it was a long day or the Full Moon Energy playing with me?Hmm...

It is the Full Moon in Libra and also a lunar eclipse! Can you say double pow pow. For all my sun and moon sign Libras, this is your special moon. For the rest of us,
we can glide in the airy energy of Libra.
Libra is ruled by Venus. Beauty, harmony, balance, love may be running in your head and in your life in some way. I feel for this Eclipse it's all about uncovering what is hidden. My mom has a great saying that I always share with others. Never lie to yourself. Being completely honest with yourself makes life easier. Something that I have found. So what are you hiding in the corners of your mind? Tonight, light a blue or white candle. Take deep breathes and say out loud to yourself truths you need to come clean on.

Since Libra is about beauty in all forms, Here is a meditation I like to do to give me extra sparkle. I'm going to make you all laugh, I like to do this mediation especially on the train. Keeps me centered and in my own energy.

Sit or stand. Close your eyes. Imagine from the ceiling/roof/sky a great shower of energy is coming down on you. I like to imagine it in colors of the rainbow. You can pick whatever color you fancy. The energy coming from above washes over you and takes away all that old energy you have keeping on you. Visualize the energy from your body melting or running down to the floor. The energy from you is going back to mama earth to be converted into golden energy for the planet. You can visualize this shower of energy as long as you need until you feel lighter or calmer. When you are ready, open your eyes.

Well, I have rambled enough, my friends. I'm wishing you all a lovely Full Moon.

Poetry Month!

Happy Thursday, my friends. I am a few days behind, I finally remembered it's poetry month! Woo hoo. If you had to suffer through learning poetry through uninspired teachers, my apologies. My deep apology. Poetry can be so many things: beautiful, thoughtful, dangerous, sexy, maddening, mind altering.

I find the best way to get back into reading poetry is as follows:

1) Find some poems you actually liked from school.
2) Look up the author and find more of their other poems.
3) Then pick a few you feel connected to. You can have as few as 3 and up to 15 poems.
4) Find a nice place you can be alone: your home or out in nature.
5) Read the poems out loud. Yes, out loud. For me, there is something about hearing poetry spoken out loud that makes the words come alive even more. Try it and see.

I have always written poetry for my own pleasure. With my active Jacob, I haven't found the time to sit down and write new poetry. I like to share with you all a poem I wrote about Jacob about a year ago. I hope you enjoy. I'll pop in through the month with more poems I have written and favorites ones from famous poets. Enjoy

It feels like you have been here
Can it only be 17 months
That you have been here
I have loved wildly, deeply,
Passionately, madly
Never have I loved with
No words to describe
how I feel
My piece of flesh and heart
My soul
My sky and sun
My Son.

Powerful Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, my friends.

Do you think Tuesdays are just a regular day of the week? Another day to get through till Friday. Oh, no my friends. Tuesdays is a day packed full of power, energy and passion.

Tuesday was named after the Norse god Tyr. The Romans named the day after their god Mars which is why Tuesday is called Martedi in Italian and Mardi in French.

How does this info help you, my dreamy friends?

Have to deal with something or someone challenging? Make an appointment on a Tuesday. Yes, align yourself with that warrior energy that the day was named after. Wear shades of red or black on your clothes too to give you that boost of energy. Warriors have fear all the time, they still go into battle.

Need a boost of romance in your life. Forget the little black dress..put on the little red dress.
Or if that is too much for you, a bit of red lipstick makes me feel glam.
Need to feel more self love or rev up your personal energy buy yourself red roses and burn a lovely red candle.

For some inner Tuesday energy, cook, bake or eat something with garlic, carrots, ginger, chillies. (Of course, not all in the same dish that may be overwhelming.)

Each day of the week is packed full of lovely energy for us to use. Want to do more research on your own. Look up the days of the week. Who or what the day was named after? From there, you can see the attributes of the days from it's namesake.

I'm wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday.

New Moon, So Soon....

Happy New Moon, my friends. Wait...I know I said that in the beginning of the month. It's our second new moon in a month which is very special indeed. It is the New Moon in Aries.

Though this little Ram is adorable. Aries energy is not laid back at all. Aries is like a hot firecracker ready to blast off and illuminate the sky. This new moon is infused with the extra boost Spring energy.

Do you need a kick in the pants to get something done? Or perhaps to feel alive again after a long and snowy winter? Or just want to feel more enthusiastic about life?This is what you do. Make a playlist of your favorite high energy songs. Songs that make you dance. Put them on and dance, as the famous quote says, like no one is watching. Do this for 30 minutes or more. Make sure you have a glass of water or smoothie to drink after you are done. When you finally finish dancing, you will feel clear and energized. Make a list, plans, vision board or action steps that you need for yourself. Then commit this week to at least doing two of them. Before you know it you will be getting things done and feel like this happy Aries Ram.

Wishing you all a Happy New Moon, my friends.

Friday Joy

Happy Friday, my friends.

Even Marilyn is excited. Had a long week? Well it's over. Had a great week? Good for you and make next week even better for yourself.

Friday Fun:
Throw out/donate all those outdated clothes.
Buy yourself a new shade of lipstick. (I recently got myself a MAC lipstick that I adore.)
Take a long hot bath.
Have as my mom would say a nice stiff drink.
Order take out or have someone else cook.
Burn a sweet pink or green candle.
Put your hand over your heart and say I love you as many times as you need.

Have a fabulous Weekend, everyone.
