I may look grumpy, but I’m happy to be alive

dreams and other things

Mr. Boombastic

I found this toad the other day while watering my holly trees. He was a big ‘un, even though you can’t really tell from the photo. I didn’t want to pick him up, which tells you a lot, if you know me! I will pick up just about anything, lol!

Well, almost anything!
I took lots of photos, because I knew there was a chance I may not see him again! And I was right, I haven’t seen him since.

“The toad beneath the harrow knows
Exactly where each tooth point goes
The butterfly upon the road
Preaches contentment to that toad.”

Here I am
Stuck in a dream
With you

I figured this is as good a time as any to tell you about a dream I had a couple months ago.


In my dream I was walking up my driveway at night and there was snow on the ground. It was dark out, except for the outside kitchen light being on, but I was happy. As I got closer to the house, I saw a frog come hoping from the darkness, from the woods, towards me. I scooped it up, put it up my coat sleeve and went inside.
That’s when I woke up.

So what does this mean? I mean, a frog in snow? What the….
At first, thinking about it in my own head, I thought it was a good sign, but I wasn’t sure so I let it rest, waiting to see if something else came of it. I waited for a while before looking it up, but when I did, I was confused. My dream book said that dreaming about frogs meant I was confused about my sexuality, which didn’t make any sense. In a quick online search one day, I found that dreaming about frogs meant disappointment, especially in love life, or that I was going to get sick. Not majorly sick, just a cold or something. So, I let it drop for a while… see what happens.

Here comes that fellow
“My goodness, how do you feel?”

So, today, I decided to delve into it once again. This is what I found…

  • women dream about frogs more than men, men tend to dream about toads
  • associated with mostly possitive occurances
  • why you were dreaming about frogs:
    • major transformation in your life (things could be changing, but aren’t they always)
    • your happy and joyful heart (love, love, love this!)
    • unpredictible and sponateous happenings in your life (possible)
    • surrounded by good friends (possible)
    • you are wasting time/money on useless hobbies (maybe? I don’t think I’m wasting time doing what I love, especially during this time of covid)
    • need to let people see your inner beauty (possible)
    • you live near a pond full of frogs (it is very possible the frog just found its way into my dream; I do live near a pond and we have Grey’s Tree Frogs that make themselves very known; but it was winter when I had the dream and winter in my dream)
  • when you dream about hearing a frog sing, this could mean new friendships, great profits/harvest. a fulfilling relationship; could also be experiencing spiritual gains/finally feel happy with your life
  • when stepping on a frog in your dream, this could mean you want to capitalize on the power you have over weaker people, abusing power,
  • a dream where you are eating frogs means that you will have a peaceful/satisfying life
  • a dream that you became a happy, jumping frog could mean that you are happy with your life, and it shows
  • seeing a jumping frog could mean that your finances are under threat

still no mention of snow… but, I think I’m generally in a good place. There’s much more, like seeing a frog on a stone, a frog in green grass or the frog turned into a prince, but I won’t get into all that right now!

  • dreaming about catching a frog means that you could get sick, not majorly sick – just a cold or something.
  • dreaming about holding a frog could mean that you are experiencing negative emotions, there is a feeling of disgust, there is a feeling of hatred towrds something/someone and you need to get it out of you
  • dreaming of a frog in your house is a positive thing – you will finally step into a more productive period in your life, you will be happy, fulfilled and content

Getting sick: I just went through a few days where I thought for sure I was getting strep throat. I managed to keep it at bay with a boatload of medicine – allergy spray and medicine, tylonol, gargaling with salt water, and spraying my throat with Chloroseptic. And resting! Lots and lots of rest and water! Nothing like having a frog in your throut! LOL
Negative emotions: have been feeling a little negative towards my boyfriend…at this point I don’t want to get into that. I have a feeling he’s drinking behind my back and possibly lying to me about where he’s going. But I’m not getting into that now.
A frog in my house: (I brought the frog inside to save it from the cold winter) A more productive period!

According to dream meaning.net, catching a frog could mean you are careless about the relationships you enter into, they could be toxic.

and you will encounter
nothing more disgusting
the rest of the day”

So, at this point I’m still not sure what it means, but I think I’m a step in the right direction! At least I hope so!!

hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
