Would you believe that after my post on Monday, the fairies/gremlins/ghosts/little people/universe (delete as
preferred) decided to give me back a couple of the things that had disappeared into the Caithness Triangle in my post on Monday.
Here it is if you missed it:
Firstly the dog bowl that went missing last week turned up in the garage (turned out that was more to do with S's putting it there then forgetting, than it actually mysteriously disappearing).
Then S was playing hall ball with a poor substitute for Reuben's beloved green ball when it rolled under one of the sofas in the living room. He had to lie down on the floor and reach right under to get it back and as he did he found the green balled wedged up in the mechanism that makes the sofa seat recline. Which is why every time I'd looked under the sofa to see if the ball was there, I'd not seen it. Mystery solved and Reuben was happily reunited with his green ball. Of course in the meantime, I had ordered a new ball from Amazon (in the shape of a very rotund chicken) and that arrived on Thursday.It's now his new favourite and the green ball lies forlorn and unloved while Reuben and his sister, Brodie, chase the chicken ball up and down the hall instead. Canine loyalty clearly doesn't extend to balls.

In other very exciting news, I am taking my Reiki first degree this weekend. I had been talking to one of the girls at the animal shelter who has her second degree which makes her a qualified Reiki Practitioner and, as I'm a firm believer that everything in the universe is connected, the whole concept of Reiki which translated is 'Universal Life Energy' really intrigues me. I hadn't known that much about it before although I'd come across a Reiki symbol, Zonar, online by chance last year and what it stood for appealed to me so much that I got it tattooed on my foot! Perhaps it was a sign.
Anyway, by chance (or design?) a cancellation came up on a two day initiation to Reiki this weekend in Wick, a town about 45 minutes from me, which another of the girls at the animal shelter told me about. It was still available when I phoned up about it so I took that as a sign and booked myself on it. I can't wait. I've already got a few books on practising Reiki on animals as, no great surprise, that is where my interests mostly lie.
Anyway, apologies in advance if I don't get round to visit as many blogs from Paint Party Friday as normal this weekend but I'll be off having my chakras attuned to hopefully become a calmer, more balanced and in tune with the universe version of me!
