I went down this kefir road a few years ago but wasn't fully committed. Now I'm committed to the point of happy obsession. When starting out with dried kefir grains, you need to strain and place them in fresh milk every day until the resulting brew thickens, smells fresh, and tastes slightly tart, but not sour. On the sixth day it happened. Real kefir made from raw milk from our cow (share). Did you know that kefir is pronounced kef-eer? Now I don't know whether to say key-fir or kef-eer. I guess it will depend on who I'm talking to.
And the little holly leaf spirit hanging from the hutch key was made from a Magic Cabin sewing kit, but I don't think they sell them anymore. It has a tiny Waldorf-style head with wool felt and wool stuffing.
Today is a waning moonday in fiery Leo. Some descriptors for Leo are: Confident, straightforward, generous, warm, and dominant. Our individual personalities shine now making this a good time for job interviews and other performance-type activities -- teaching, acting, training, sales, etc. We enjoy the Leo spotlight and might feel like wearing bold colors -- reds, golds, and oranges especially.
The sign of Leo affects the heart, circulation, and upper back. That means conditions may be aggravated, while at the same time healing efforts and actions are well done now. Louise Hay in You Can Heal Your Life relates the heart with love and joy. Life and stress can squeeze out all the joy in our hearts and make us feel hard-hearted. The treatment for this is simple. Take joy.
Wishing you a joy-filled week.
