Red, Dead and Cuddley
Here in the "city" everyone gets burgled or robbed. Somehow with the arsenal of swords, guns and knives we own, not to mention both of our tempers, I'm not to worried. (But explaining that to our neighbors without sounding like skin head nut jobs is another story.)People in the new age community ask me if I'm afraid of the "spiritual energies" Miles draws and "brings in to our home". What? Like he's channeling Satan? Sorry no, Satan lives down the block and designs brat doll movies. (seriously, his real name is Bob Lizarraga) http://www.lizarraga.net/ I like saying hello to him using his nickname though. Almost Everyone over 50 turns their head with worry. If I did see a scary TEVES "energy" hanging out here, I'd tell the dude to guard the house!
We went looking at houses and I told Miles when we get our "compound", I want a 20 foot cement wall with razor tape on the top and a sign that says, "unannounced visitors will be tortured and shot". He disagreed. He thought a tribe of Aboriginal warriors with blow darts would be more fun and less traceable. For now, the life size Darkness Bust saves us from most pushy missionaries and "Good lord, you need saven'! " types, not to mention the minions of Satanic Beings just flying around the neighborhood waiting to be discovered by Miles Teves. Right? Amen sister. If they only knew what kind of people we really were, they would be so disappointed. But then, there would be nothing to gossip about. So, I'm happy to provide constant entertainment for the fear-mongering idiots of the world. I mean, what would Vampira say?
Shake it.... says Malena

I have just enough energy left to add to this before falling into bed.Had a long hard far away gig last night. Some gigs are magic and wonderful and everyone is into you and the music is on on on and the people are as much a part of it all as you are. And some gigs are work. I worked last night. ( tho at one point a Party Bus of women pulled up, all dressed in Sombreros and such, with a bride to be. We played Mexican music for them. Irish actually, but hey, like at that point they knew the difference???? They were fun anyway. )
Today my belly dancing horticulture friend Gretchen came over and planned Yard and Garden. Also planted three huge lilac bushes, one unknown tree which MIGHT be a plum or a crabapple, a Clematis Vine and a pot of Pansies, and hung up twp purple petunia baskets. I am not so very into Grass as the main feature of Lawn. I want all sorts of wild and magic spreading things and lots of Garden and Bushes and , oh I don't know, weird things. It is going to be all wild and Fey in the back and very lovely in the front.
Between Dog and Garden, I no longer worry about workout. Just staying awake and upright, or heck just upright, for work and gigs. ( which , as I mentioned, are sometimes work. )The Veggies are all doing all one could hope for too. Country Thing that I am. I haven't quite got Malena's Style down , when it comes to Gardening, no high heels and corsets, but I think long black dress and top hat pictures could very well be showing up here soon.I love my Witchy Little House on the Hill!!!!!!!!!!( and even tho they are not needed here, where people hardly ever even lock doors, I think the Warriors With Blow Darts would add a certain something to any establishment!)
Love and Gardens,
