This weekend was a fun one although busy, primarily encompassed by travel, dogsitting, and seeing dear friends and family. I didn't really get that much accomplished, which can have either good or bad connotations depending on what one could deem necessary in time management. My photoshoot at the mill in my hometown on Saturday was rained out so my friends and I decided to hit up some antique/thrift stores and a book store and ended up going to one of my favorite restaurants in town (Gabriel's) for greasy breadsticks and Amber Bock. I got to see my niece and after she went to bed we all sat and watched documentaries and a good night was had by all.
Sunday I got to see my parents and helped my mom pick tomatoes. We drank wine and talked and it was just a generally good day. I love seeing my parents and hate that I don't get to see them very often anymore.
Because I am a huge dork and into astrology, this weekend I started reading a book called "Cosmic Love." It is not necessarily about love but about human relationships in relation to the North and South nodes in astrology. I never really knew much about the "true node" or anything like that, but I do enjoy psychology so it is a pretty informative book. I have a Taurus north node (I guess Scorpio would be my south, even though I am a Scorpio) and the book was pretty darn close where it described my personality. I don't know if I believe in all the past life reincarnation stuff the book talks about (for example, according to the book I have no south node, which makes no sense!), but it has been helpful as far as my life path is concerned. The funniest thing I found is that as I investigated it, one of the roles I am supposed to play in my life is "the architect." How ironic is that? Although vague, the book has many helpful hints for dealing with people in general. Since I think of things astrologically (which includes my family, pets, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, etc..), I like to know how best to deal with them on a personal basis.
Also, an even dorkier fact about me is that I LOVE READING TEXTBOOKS. My Comp II class is about "Religion in the 21st Century" and since I received it Saturday I have been reading it almost nonstop. It is so horribly well-written. My Physics textbook scares the shit out of me already, however.
