My husband brought a young man over to the house this weekend, he’s 27. Yup. Heading into his Saturn return. My husband is putting a band together, this guy is going to be in it. He plays guitar, drums and something called a didgeridoo among other things. He plays more than one thing at a time, by attaching things to his toe.  I will upload a sample if I can figure out how. It’s awesome.  Anyway, he dropped a drum set off here, along with a gigantic sounds system and some foam for the walls.

“You stayin’ for dinner?” I asked.

“I heard it’s obligatory,” he said.

“Well, it’s not. You can stay or go, but if you stay, we’re having meatballs.”  He nodded.

They near in the kitchen as I cooked. He was remarking on the house. It was not what he expected.  “You know any Italians?” I asked.

“No, ma’am.”

“Well have you ever eaten any Italian food?”

“No, I don’t think I have…”

I laughed heartily. “These meatballs are spicy. I think they’re too spicy for you, but my husband says…”

“I know,” he said.

The pasta was boiling, I wasn’t really thinking of anything. I was behind an island from the table where the two men were sitting, but I kept walking up to it, to listen to the conversation.

“You can be yourself, P. This is ______,” he said.  They are friends.

“I don’t see how I’m not being myself,” I said, with a piece of linguine in my hand, literally.  “I’ve got a piece of pasta in my hand. I keep walking over here to test it. Isn’t that what I normally do?”

The kid just looked at me.

“It’s called, al dente,” I said. “It means to the tooth. Or to the bite.  I’m waiting for the pasta to be done… but not too done.”  This got him real curious. Seriously.

“I make spaghetti sometimes,” he said. “What are you talking about?”

I explained how he should bite into the pasta. If it crunched at all, it was not done.  You want it to have some bite.  Pull it off the stove before it can get mushy, which is disgusting…”

We sat down to eat. I don’t know if he liked it or not. This is the South and people are polite. He passed on garlic bread, which I have never seen anyone do in my life.  “What was that again?”

“Al dente. ALL DEN TAY.”

“And what is it again?”


“What you’re eating right there… to the bite.”

He seemed pleased. I sent him home with meatballs, he has a wife and three kids. “This is the right amount for 1 # of pasta,” I explained.

Apparently they ate it and enjoyed it. Today, the whole shop was talking about “meatballs as big as my fist”.

Are you moving into new realms at this time?

Going to an astrological meet-up on Friday at 7:30pm.

I haven’t been to a group meeting in 20 years.  I think.

Made the decision to go on January 29th.

I don’t want my Personal Year 9 to be like my PY8.

I think, I say, I think I need to be a little more social.

It was a New Moon desire before the New Moon manifest.

It’s Aquarius, so, I’m ahead of the game, I guess.  Future orientation.

I wish, I say, I wish it were Jupiter for the goal.  But, he gets the assist.  As in, he’s gonna be a helper.

Speaking of italian cuisine.

I once had an Italian girlfriend.  She emphatically requested that I tie her up with spaghetti noodles.  Man, you got to know my Venus in Capricorn ain’t goin’ for that!!

But with Guido waiting outside the door, what’s a boy to do??

That man’s got influence…

Very nice blend with a clean composition.

If they complete a song, I would love to hear it, Elsa.

That’s for sure…

Tonight our local Toastmasters club was looking for members to participate in a two-part speech contest. I somehow managed to get talked into being a judge for one portion and a speaker for the other. (My fellow members have faith in me, I’ll tell you that! 🙂)

The thing is…the speech contest winner goes on to compete at Area level, then Division, District, all the way up to International level if they win subsequent rounds. eek   Not sure I see myself going that far, but we’ve had a member reach Division level so who knows. 

I’ve never been a contestant before. Wish me luck!

Yep! I just started belly dancing classes and hope to join the local troupe when I know enough basics. Its so much fun. Uranus is almost in my fifth house. 

Also, venturing more abstract realms, archetypal, psychic, etc. Jupiter is transiting my 12th house.

Carrying on, in the same vein, today we’re having a ‘Southern” family over… for steak fajitas!

Further, I am going to get the mother over her “instant pot fear” by having her make the rice in the pot.

Once she’s done with that, we’re going to make the corn tortillas, fresh.

Yesterday, I made black beans; Brazilian type. 

This is fun!
