Echuca Farm Stay Diary: Day 6

Hello from the last day of the unprecedented year.

Today I woke up from yes, another great night sleep. After slathering my face with the pure luxe face oil I got as a free sample, I started reading The New Parisienne by Lindsey Tramuta in bed.

I was in the middle of writing the annual post of “The Year I..” when Fafa called me for brekkie. Today he only made egg on toast anticipating the delicious lunch date in the town.

I published the above post, pulled a card representation for the year-end (King of Cups), went running, clocked 150km for the year, and sat to do one of my new year rituals; writing my new year intentions and goals, resolutions, and sharing the process with Jik.

2021 Intentions, Goals and Resolutions

By then, it was almost lunchtime. We got ready and drove half-hour in the scorching heat. We had lunch at the Monkey Coo & Asian Kitchen. My order wasn’t as good this time, but the crab spring rolls appetiser was yummy!

Before leaving Echuca town centre, we made a short stop at Candle Scents as I wanted to give a small thank you token to the farmhouse owner who has been so courteous throughout our stay, even when we broke the bathtub yesterday.

It was past 3 PM when we were back in the farmhouse. Since it was too hot to do anything and it’s a liminal space day anyway, after feeding the chickens, I changed into Pjs, opened a new bottle of wine and started journaling.

I wrote my last gratitude list for the year, tarot related goals for the next year and any random things I can think of in between, with the pink-sky backdrop which can be seen from the dinning room where I am writing this from. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

After this as my previous days’ routine, I am going to shower, watch Come Dine With Me on SBS Food, have steak dinner (Fafa’s new year’s eve speciality), drink more wine in the name of festivity, write a bit more, greet the cows, wish my parents an early Happy New Year, read, eat 12 grapes as another new year tradition, drink tea, watch Dexter, pray and go to bed early-ish so I can greet the new year in peace and gratitude.

Happy New Year’s Eve ━ hope you are celebrating it the way you want.

This Might Hurt Tarot Deck Interview

Tell me about you:

1. Your vibe:

Eight of Pentacles

The Apprentice – This is the card of putting the hard work to learn a craft or master a skill. This deck invites me to work with it for the rest of this year to learn tarot as one of my goals in 2020.

2. What type of reading suits you best/What are you good at?

Wheel of Fortune

This one is a bit hard for me to understand. I would like to think this deck is going to support my tarot journey through thick and thin. It’s also very moldable as in I can use it for any type of reading, from personal to professional, from fun stuff to heart breaks.

3. What is a challenge for you?

King of Cups

Leadership through emotional strength. The limit of this deck is finding a balance of emotions. Managing feelings without repressing them. Listening to unconscious without being overwhelmed by it. How to show compassion to the community while taking care of oneself.

4. How to treat you?

Nine of Swords

Err…

4. How do you spill your tea?

Three of Cups

Party with Friends – The deck is telling me to always bring it to social events and gathering with friends. I will take it out and introduce it to the group whenever the opportunities arise.

6. What are you here for?

The Sun

Oh happy day! This deck is here to teach me to see the world with a sense of wonder. To find and spread joy in my tarot journey.

7. Our vibes together:

Knight of Pentacles

The one who rides all the way through. This deck will ground me. It’s reliable, will work alongside with me diligently and stick it my learning.

Perfect!

No Internet Prompts Me To Journal

I keep getting reminders to journal today.

From the podcast in the morning walk to the internet being cut off to reading the Healing Magic suggestion to write in red something that I intrinsically predicted.

I moved the desk to join my new team today. Many came and inquired what was happening. I am actually excited about doing new things at work.

I called my App earlier. I have been meaning to call him for a while but keep putting it off until I pull today’s tarot card this morning: the King of Cups. It represents him perfectly for me. Kind, loving and generous, yet can be distance. And, he is also a Pisces. Our conversation was awkward, which is pretty usual, and I am okay with. I am just glad that I called him.

I got Chrysocolla crystal to work with me this week. Hmm, I am not sure what more to write. Not journaling for sometime sure does make picking it up again a little harder.

I wish I can wake up 30 mins earlier every morning so I can do a 10-15 mins morning journal every day. Journaling should be my thing.
