Day two of writing on my blog. The midwest Winter Storm is over. Things are very cold, very snowy and very beautiful. The snow hanging on the trees is awe inspiring. The wildlife is out and about..the bird feeder is very busy with cardinals, blue jays, little birds, squirrels and chipmunks. They are all very busy collecting to get thru the rest of the winter.
I’m looking forward to the Super Bowl game. It should be a very good game..not a blow out like usual. The Colts are my 2nd favorite team (the Bengals being my first..Who Dey!) but I have to admit that the Saints winning would be pretty awesome..we’ll see what happens. I’m going to make Baked Ziti and Pineapple upside down cake..good comfort food for a cold winter day. Yum-O.
This week I’ll be looking for those special Valentine gifts for my daughters and grandaughter. At 14 months old she is old enough to enjoy a heartshaped cookie or a cupcake with pink icing and red sprinkles! So much fun. She loves books too so Barnes and Noble here I come! My daughters love gift certificates and witchy items..I just got a wonderful new mortar and pestle..rough granite and very big..I’m thinking that would make a great gift! My husband is happy with eating out so I’m sure thats what we’ll do.
I love to knit, especially small projects like scarfs, mittens, little sweaters for my grandaughter and small baby blankets. I haven’t had a good knitting day lately.I’m thinking today would be a good day for that too. As I mentioned before too, I’m reading Ellen Dugan’s book “the Book of Witchery” which is excellent. It gives the week of the day correspondences and magickal influences. I highly recommend it and the information is definitely going to go in my book of shadows.
Speaking of book of shadows, my daughters, my sister and I are all anxiously awaiting deliver of our huge, beautiful, leather bound books from Witches Moon. We ordered them in August and are trying very hard to be patient. From what we can tell, on average, it takes about 7 months to get them..they are completely handmade by a husband and wife with great love. They are very special and will be a true “keep forever and hand down to future generations” item! We’ve been given a tentative shipping date of the 17th..so I’ll let you know when they come! (wriggling with excitement and anticipation)!
Well, I’m off to make that cake, light the fire in the fireplace, light some candles and settle in with my book or knitting.
Blessed Be, Autumn
