Decaf in the evening

I can drink coffee any time of the day or night, but as I’ve gotten older, I discovered that drinking caffeinated drinks after about 3pm is never a good idea for me. Worse, I crave coffee as a dessert. But after dinner, when I seem to crave coffee as much as I do in the morning, I’ve been torn between happiness and the fear of waking up to pee every hour. So, I’ve been on the hunt for a good tasting decaf and I think I’ve found the one. I ordered the Organic FairTrade Coffee by Mount Hagen from Amazon Japan a month or so ago based on good reviews. I love it. It’s so rich with flavor and doesn’t taste like stale chemicals like the one from Folgers. I just use about one tablespoon and a little bit of milk, and I’m good. Craving satisfied and vindictive bladder misery averted.

First Clarity Spread

I continue to be blown away by the sheer eeriness of tarot reading. I shuffled three times (I prefer the riffle shuffle style). Cut the deck into three, reordered. All the while focusing on the question in my mind. I laid the cards out as the spread indicated and damn I feel like the universe really is speaking to me. Like it knows me. Sees me. And is eager to give me direction.

For a while now, I’ve been in need of clarity and guidance in my life so needless to say, I think I’ll be doing this particular spread more often.

Now I need to figure out a way to make room in my night stand for my growing tarot collection because as of right now I have 7 more decks on the way.

Two New Decks

Yesterday, I impulsively purchased two new decks that caught my eye, Cat Tarot and Daily Crystal Inspiration (DCI). On first impression, the Cat Tarot card stock is kind of on the thin side, but I’m not really bothered by it. I got it because I thought the artwork was funny, playful, and endearing.

As for the other one, though it is a bit hard to shuffle, I really like the simplicity and clean look of the DCI oracle deck. For some reason I like it more than the Judy Hall one, though I might still get that one in the future.

So here are my cards of the day from these two new decks, along with a card from the Animal Spirit:

Site Updates

Last night, as I was getting getting ready for bed, I noticed something off about my blog. My blog title wasn’t displaying correctly on my browser’s tab. Of course, my OCD kicked into overdrive and I immediately launched a full scale investigation. After tinkering with my customizations, I noticed that more things went haywire, and I finally realized that WordPress had decided to “retire” my beloved Moka theme. No matter how hard I tried to modify the code, I just couldn’t. Unless of course I upgraded to a business plan, which I was not about to do since that would cost around $300 a year? Yikes.

So, naturally, I stayed up until 3am trying to find a decent WordPress theme instead. I finally settled on the Editor theme. I’ve seen it many times over the last few years but never really warmed to it, though I do like the fixed navigation side bar. I have to admit though, it’s growing on me!

Also, this morning, I decided that since I’m using a new theme now, I might as well register the free domain that came with my premium plan. So, I did. I now officially own—which is now my humble blog home on the aetherweb. 🙂
