Prompt for Day 10:

Wild Cards: Take a photo of your cards out in nature (or if you can’t leave your house, with a sweet houseplant!)

 

The day I took the photo was a bit wild, as we had some snow from morning to mid afternoon, a dusting mostly, but it melted by the time I got out to take the picture in my back porch. It was kind of cold to go too far, so this is about as “wild” as it got for this photo.

On a side note, when we moved to our apartment here, the view behind the apartment from the back porch was fairly wild with tall grass and field. Then the landlord decided I guess she needed more money and renters, so the apartments right behind us (out of the photo, would be slightly to the right) were built in the past year. The houses you see in the distance are also part of her business (she sells those) and of course meant razing over that wilderness; that area back there had grass, trees, nice greenery overall. So unless I go out to the Pinnacles and the woods, the “wild” here is shrinking. To be honest, that tree you see in the middle there, given the drive to build more I am not sure how much longer it will stay. Oh well.

Prompt for Day Seven: The “That Gross Dirty Melting Snow”: Tell your deck the beginning of a classic joke, and then pull the punchline. Guaranteed to be an experience.

I am going with the Abbott and Costello classic of “Who’s on first?” (Link to YouTube video so you can see the routine).

Day Six prompt:

The Spring Cleaning Spread: Pull (randomly or by design) a card to represent something that needs to leave your life.

April Fool Tarot Challenge 2018 Day 6.

 

Card was drawn randomly. It certainly shows something needs to be left behind, but once you do so, it should be smooth sailing and better days. I’d say stop clinging to the past.

Day 5 Prompt:

The April Showers Spread: Pull a card to represent April showers (an upcoming challenge), and another to show May flowers (a potential positive outcome of this challenge)

 

April Food Challenge Day 5 cards. Five of Wands and Six of Wands.

For the April showers (an upcoming challenge): Five of Wands. I see chaos and possible conflict between now and the end of the semester. As depicted in the Santa Muerte Tarot, the guy lighting a match seems very appropriate. Things could get volatile, or dramatic, or just plain chaotic. So I am just hanging in there for the ride and doing my best to avoid drama.

For the May flowers (a potential positive outcome of the challenge): Six of Wands. We make it to the end of the term; we get to see another graduation and celebrate work well done. However, I do work in academia in more of a support staff thing, so after commencement, summer work starts. Oh well.
