Early One Morning...

I'm up early this morning. Usually, my husband is up at this time before I am. I'm drinking coffee, watching the news.

I must remember today to ask my husband about the blinds in the bathroom: I keep finding them open (which is unusual because we both enjoy privacy).

I'm looking forward to tonight: ringing in the new year with people that I've known now for years and whom I like.

My dreams were quiet last night, nothing of interest to anyone.

The Next Nine Days...

What a busy schedule:

January 3 - television appearance (gawd, I found out it's national)
January 5,6 - readings, regular schedule
January 7 - Tarot party
January 8 - all day investigation / readings up North

When I return on the 8th, I have to prepare a report of another investigation.


After two days of shopping constantly, I found an outfit for the television show with much, much help from my husband. It's simple: black calf-length skirt, green sweater and funky 1920s'-style shoes.

So far this week, one person has asked if she can be my assistant at investigations and a parapsychological group has asked if I would be interested in working with them.

My husband and I really enjoyed shopping together today and visiting with a favourite uncle.

Well, I don't know how they heard of me but I was invited to do a live, call-in show on a well-known television station. Wow.

I am very, very nervous about this but I do get to buy a new outfit :)

Apparently, my rating on Blogexplosion leaves something to be desired. 5.50, I think. Jeesh, I hope I haven't bored you to death. Err...wrong choice of words??

It was a matter of curiosity for me to try the Blogexplosion phenomenon. I'm not sure how I feel about marketing one's blogs so aggressively. Sure, there are link directories, etc. and I don't really have a problem with submitting my blog to those, but actually participating in a blog-viewing plan? Ah, well. I have met some fantastic people so, for that reason alone, it was worth joining.

I suspect that you would like more details about the readings that I give daily but I can't provide you with much: I promise people confidentiality and I would not want to risk a client recognizing him-or-herself in an entry on the offchance that my blog would be stumbled upon. No apologies here.

If, however, you think that there should be more information about ghosts, then I will do my best to provide you with experiences that don't affect copyright of any sort.

At any rate, to the people who "blogmarked" me, I thank you. You like me, you really like me :-)

Happy Holidays!

OK, I haven't posted as often as I said I would but things have been busy: clients and botanical products and stuff.

Now, things are settling down for me since I booked the rest of December off for myself (I can do that cuz I'm the boss).

In January: readings resume from Monday to Friday and then there will be an investigation up north in the second week. My husband and I are going to treat it also as a vacation.

Ghostly events to report? My sister has told me that my niece's noisy toys are going off by themselves. (Still, she went ahead and bought her another such noisemaker for Christmas: Tickle-Me-Elmo). That house is never devoid ghostly activity. In fact, during her pregnancy, a toy on the nursery shelf (Ernie, I believe) started talking.

In our home, my husband and I can hear conversations in the basement WHILE in the basement! In fact, we keep thinking that the other one is speaking!

Also, the other day, hearing my husband yell, I ran frantically up the basement stairs to the main floor and asked my husband if he was all right.

"Yes!" he shouted back down from the top floor (we have a lot of stairs and a very tall house). He thought that I had yelled.

There's nothing much else to report except the footsteps that I can hear from the basement when I'm the only one in the house.

Everyone keeps asking me if I intend to watch the new show called "Medium" in January and the spate of supernatural-inspired movies that are upcoming...I might but I'm not exactly excited. I guess it would be the same for my husband: coming home after work and watching shows/movies about computers.

For me, a movie can seem compelling for different reasons: the pairing of actors/actresses, the script is based on a familiar novel or the director is one of my favourites.

At any rate, I look forward to the new year for many reasons and I hope that you do, too.

Sunday's Radio Show

It went really well: there were callers queued before I even got to the microphone. We took about 40 calls which has to be some kind of record.

The host said that the show gets better all the time.

Each time I appear, the questions seem to be clustered, coincidentally, into one of several categories. Last show: job and finances. This makes sense given the time of year but my family, avid listeners that they are, have told me that they prefer the questions about love and relationships. I have no control over this, as I've tried to explain, since calls are taken on a first-call, first-answered basis (as it should be).

My readings, in person, are usually about one hour in length and pretty comprehensive. Not surprisingly, then, the show is a change of pace.

Gothic Requests

I've added many books to my Christmas wishlist this year and I think that my husband has endeavoured to find me some. There's little in the way of fiction, mostly the meta-gothic: criticism, history, etc.

I have had trouble with motivation today: I can't seem to wake up and start doing things.

I scheduled only one client today and this appointment isn't until 6:00 p.m. I feel rather selfish because I am now booking into the second week of January when I could have given some of the day to clients. It's Christmas, however, and, so, Merry Christmas to me.

Back soon.

I'm leaving for the radio station soon. Once I get there, the time goes by so quickly. A one hour show just flies by.

Tarot and Such

Last night, I did a tarot party and it turned out very well. I severely limit the number that I do. This is done in addition to my regular schedule of weekday readings and only on Fridays.

I apologize, dear readers, for not posting much lately but I have been so terribly busy. My writing has also preoccupied me.

I will write more and more indepthly this week, I hope.
