My Head is Funky



 Thank you for making time for me…my head has so much going on…it means much that you are willing to listen…

As always we will start with massage…I am working with deep water horizon to try and figure out my claim…they cannot compare me to those in my industry because I do not know of anyone in the state with my qualifications, so they are having a hard time trying to figure it out…I wrote a letter to Rick Scott, Adam Putnam and MQA outlining my resignation…Rick Scott had a young man reach out to me…He appreciates how dedicated I have been and requested I apply for a CEU waiver…as you all know I have been fighting this for a while…it is nice to know my Governor believes in me and what I do…I will do as he requested…film at 11

I love my school- Everglades University…I am currently enrolled in finical management and completive strategy…I still have a 4.0 average, but maintaining it takes much work…it tickles me that at 47 years old I am entered in a master’s program…I can see a whole group of people in heaven shaking their heads in disbelief…I feel blessed

Book 3 is so much fun…it really is amazing what a Girly Pirate can get into…Chris and I have managed a few phone calls…it is neat…in 8 years I have really come to depend on him and times likes this just shows how much…we will soon be opening a new website…I hope to have it up by the first of October…

Nature’s Power and Energy, LLC has been a dynamic place to work lately…to see the HydroQueen start to come to life is AMAZING…we will soon have her in pool trials- really freakin excited…Our new website for NPE will go up in December

The Circle of Boudica has had a very quiet summer…for Lammas (Aug 1) l have found an old soda bread recipe and have been searching out some lovely yellow candles…it has been difficult locating wheat bundles down here…I plan on a small bonfire and would love the company…

SunshinePaddle had a VERY hard month…one of our crew members got ill and passed away from residual effects of being battered- sadly she is free now…it has strengthened my resolve to work hard to make this happen…I was saddened that Hillsboro County has money for sports teams, but not for the women and children of their county to be safe…smh…it has rained every day for the last few weeks, so I have been doing office work …still in need of volunteers- I could even use someone to write letters or send e-mails…I have been working out on the Welso whenever I get a free moment…

The gardens are growing at 100mph due to the rain…I mow whenever I can get the ground to be dry enough to support the mower- about every 3 days…the lawn becomes a giant grass matt that sucks the water up… a few weeks ago Walt and I cleaned up…by the time Melissa came she could not tell…Melissa and her daughter have spent 2 days trying to help me get some air to the plants and get the base of the planters cleared and it just doesn’t look like we did anything at all…anytime the yard floods it is important to make sure you compost when the water goes down…this replenishes the soil…because my yard is a living eco system, many bugs (that are normally underground) can be seen everywhere at the moment…this has been bringing many interesting birds to the yard…some things are just so cool in such a very bizarre way…

Mom and I have had time together as Dad has been visiting Tris…Walter has been a tad cranky because every time he has a day off it rains…We plan to go swimming Tuesday with Mom…he has a vacation day coming up and I am planning to take him to the rock climbing gym…it will be so cool- shh it is a surprise…I have also found what I will buy him for Yule…

A friend sent me ‘Comfortiss’ to use on the dogs…it was a Godsend and has worked wonderfully…I could not use advantage due to skin issues from hartz shampoo…for the last 60 days they have been flea and tick free and I have washed them once a week…if you use this make sure you feed the animal first or they will get sick…
Several people have asked how I keep it all straight…lists, notes, a good sense of humor, the ability to accept my flaws and the ability to be a straight up Bitch when needed…I think above all- I am fair to all concerned or at least I try to be…so many have told me we need to lead by example…it is okay for me to stand up…my hand will reach back to grab yours to bring you with me:)
Thanks for letting me sort out my head...
Your Girly Pirate,

Holy Mackerel Batman

Merry Meet,

I have been cranking out the work…so glad you came to see me…grab an Aquafina- the bottles are good and cold……come… walk with me… life has so many changes, let me fill you in:

My clients know August 30th will be my last day of massage…as you know this has been a bittersweet situation for me…I will miss my clients, but cannot go into debt to keep my license- I did that for the last renewal…I have called the Dept of Health about this and they will not budge on CEUs or license renewal- even though they are aware the new laws have crippled this profession…they do not care…we do have a massage board in this state, but they do not represent the therapists- they are just there to judge and punish therapists…I did write a letter to the governor, consumer affairs and medical quality assurance- not that it will do me any good, but it made me feel better to say something…people have been trying to get in before I am done…it has created some tearful sessions

School has been WAY BUSY…I just finished Organizational Behavior and Global Business Ventures…so glad for both classes…I got As in both…now I am in Fiscal Management and Strategic Management…both seem really interesting so far…my school teaches using the most up to date information and I have been able to put it to practical use…Everglades University is AWESOME

Chris and I have been working on Book 3 and it is going okay…the book is good, but his phones and cable are still down and it is making it difficult…it is still my hope to have it out before my birthday- fingers crossed
Nature’s Power and Energy has been ever so busy…we now have the help of 3 very special engineers, each has brought wonderful new perspective to the current project…I have seen amazing engineered drawings of the HydroQueen…it is my feeling we will soon be building the prototype (maybe as soon as September)…I have been getting water readings…too freakin cool…I have also put through an unsolicited proposal to the National Energy Technology Labs which is part of the Dept. of Energy- this upload is approx. 8 ½ hours…

August 1 is Lammas…this is the celebration of the first harvest…this is yellow and green…it is an all vegetable meal…this is a time of reflection- what has been done/ what needs done…the planting of autumn crop is the next day…it is common to cover all mirrors in the house and garden…metal trash can lids should be filled with water and one should walk among them and pray…the water reflects the intention of the person praying…In the Circle of Boudica we will pray for Zac and Zeta as they need our energy to help them

The SunshinePaddle has been busy…practice has had swimming and endurance training…I have also been over to Weeki Wachee and to Hudson…I have made appearances at the Newport Richie Aquatic Center and The Grand Prix in Tampa…later this month I will attempt to get down to the Dolphin Research Center on Marathon Key…we have had many planning meetings and currently we are looking for ways to raise money…please message me with any ideas

Dad has been up playing with Tristan…Mom has been here an working on a new quilt…we have been getting a good deal of rain…listen…can you hear it…it is the sound of the grass growing…I have had to mow every 3 days…my cactus and plumeria started blooming a week ago and I feel will go the rest of summer

I am planning a trip to go tubing…if you have time message me, I would love for you to go with…your Tan looks good:)


Blessed be,
