After two back to back Winter storms…about 4:00 this afternoon the sun came out! It was beautiful. The skies cleared and turned blue and the snow was glinting in the brilliance! I was soooo happy to see it! I love Winter as I’ve said before, but the dreary gray heavy skies can really get a person down. My spirit was lifted as soon as I saw the bright ball in the sky again.
Today I had lunch with my daughters and grandaughter at Fridays..I love love love their sweet potato fries!…then we headed off to Barnes & Noble to have coffee and purchase various books. With Valentines Day coming, little board books were bought for little Lily, crochet books for Willow and I, and some gifts that I won’t mention here so as not to give anything away! While we were there I took Lily back to the Children’s section to run off some steam and play. They have a little table set up with a Thomas the Train set for the kids to play on. A little boy about 5 years old was playing there. My grandaughter became absolutely giddy about another child there playing and immediately started interacting with him. She laughed til she was weak kneed literally everytime he said anything or made an “engine” noise..she kept grabbing his arm to touch him and stay connected to him. Bless his heart he quickly realized he had her rapt attention and took advantage of it quickly..playing with her. It was sooo adorable, I wanted to laugh with her in her joy, and cry at the love I felt for her. I will never forget it…ever. She is just 14 months old but seems so much older..an old soul, I believe. She is very special, but of course I’m her Nana and would think so wouldn’t I??!!
Tonight we are in the “dark moon.” The new moon will be on the 13th…I am trying to decide what I want to ask The Goddess to aid me in during that night. The new moon is for new projects, personal growth, healing and drawing abundance, money and success. I will ask for all those things in some way..I don’t have a new project planned as of right now so I will focus on the others. I love when after 3 days of the dark moon that the silver sliver shows up again in the sky and all seems right with the world. Tomorrow I’ll be going to the health food store to get the needed herbs and oils to do my spellwork.
I’m almost finished with “The Book of Witchery” by Ellen Dugan and again, I strongly suggest it to those interested in Magickal Daily Correspondences..the information is invaluable and really helps me to be grounded and feel prepared for each day of the week. I’ve picked out the next book I’ll be starting on next. More on that yet to come.
Have you seen the new show “Past Life”? It’s a good one, I highly recommend it. Whether you believe in reincarnation or not.
I’m off to watch the show and do more reading. May you have a Blessed, restful night.
