It has now been raining for a whole week, continuously. For a country associated with the desert, it is incredible how much rain pours down over parts of it. Roads have been flooded and there’s a mini moat around my house. Everything is damp, slightly moist. After having clothes hanging on the washing line for a week, I ended up taking the whole lot to the laundromat and paying for a dryer. I’ve learned it is not a good idea to leave tarot cards out on a table overnight – the paper absorbs moisture and they end up feeling damp. My Fairytale tarot deck actually got bent out of shape – the whole deck just became wavy after I left it on the table for a night uncovered. I suppose I should take more care of my precious possessions, eh?
So when the Death card turned up yesterday, I saw the boat on the river and thought, That’s about right. Actually since one is not meant to drive through flood waters a lot of my co-workers weren’t even at work as quite a few roads were flooded. A canoe might be just the thing at the moment, at least to get through the front yard 😉
So this weekend I’ll be investing in some clove oil and wiping the walls to stop mould from growing – no point in getting a dehumidifier around here anyway. I do wonder how people managed a hundred years ago, with no modern appliances, air conditioning, and usually six children around to clean and feed. Death is a final card for all of us, but until then, I guess we are a pretty resilient bunch 😉
Hope you are all warm and dry. Many blessings,
