Releasing Blocks, Wrestling Squirrels
*Nope, that’s not an anaconda, that’s just a small portion of the root ball that came out of the drain….damn.
We’ve had a drain blockage in the backyard for…….ever.
It worked like a charm for the first seven years and then these last three years it’s been slowwwwwwwwing down, until this past month, when I did my spring power wash,(which I love to do, BTW, I love instant gratification!) the water never drained.
It just collected and sat there like a little lagoon.
It created its own Eco-system. Wildlife started to gather at dusk and dawn.
Never one to put the kabosh on the yard self-landscaping, ( it often has better ideas that any of us), a lagoon so close to the bar-b-que was less than desirable.
And we needed a functioning drain on the patio.
At the same time the guys were working on clearing and re-routing the drain today, the cable guy showed up.
It was a miracle of sorts, because the wait time window was reasonable, (11-12) and he actually showed up inside that window.
Our cable signal gets wonky every year and a half or so, because the squirrels decide to chew, floss and jump rope with our Time Warner cable line.
So up the pole the cable guy goes, to splice and dice the line, and leave a cease and desist notice for the squirrels.
The astrology lately has been about re-visiting blockages and seeking clarity.
I know it to be true, because Tosha Silver says it’s so, along with a thousand others.
So….(wiping hands together) done, and done!
We killed two birds with one stone today.
Well, it may have been two stones, and no birds died today, although I did have my eye on some squirrels…..but you get the picture.
We cleared the signal AND the blockage.
As above; so below.
Metaphorically speaking; I feel SO much better.
*I must admit; I do miss the lagoon.
Have you recently cleared something up that’s been blocked? Have you noticed a difference in how you feel?
I’d LOVE to hear about it.
