So Mother Nature is bringing on the snow again here in Ohio! We have gotten about 15 inches thru the last two storms..this one is to bring another 6-9 inches! I love the snow and Winter but I think enough is enough! It IS very beautiful though and it makes me nestle in and work around my house and various projects etc etc. Maybe it’s HER way of forcing us to focus inward and slow down and enjoy the beauty She’s giving us.
The Olympics have been wonderful and I have trouble tearing myself away from the tv..thank goodness for DVR! I’m so proud of the American athletes, they are doing us proud for sure! I love the figure skating and the pairs started last night. Winning Silver in the Nordic combined for the first time was awesome, Apollo Ohno is so exciting to watch, the moguls were awesome! Just so wonderful to watch!
I finished Ellen Dugan’s book “The Book of Witchery”. It was really an awesome book and I learned so much about my craft. The power that is available to us everyday and the ability to use it to our advantage in our spellwork is amazing. Today, while I’m snowed in, I’m going to start transferring what I learned to pages for my Book of Shadows…I love working on my pages, finding pics online to put on the pages, working out the style of the page, font, etc..so much fun and so personal to me. She also has full moon (ESbat) rituals for the days of the week..such as if a Full Moon is on a saturday etc. I learned alot too about the Gods and Goddesses that represent each day of the week and more about their personalities which made them go much more real to me.
Today I will be doing my Storm Protection spell not to keep the storm away but to keep my power on! I don’t want to miss a minute of the Olympics! LOL I’ll have a fire crackling away soon and I made my famous chili yesterday so I’ll probably have that again..after all, it is usually even better the 2nd day! I love to cook and need the power to do that too! I think today I might make my no bake cookies and my mozzarella chicken! Good comfort food for a cold day.
The next book I’m diving into is “Ostara” by Edain McCoy..as that Sabbat is coming up I want to refresh my knowledge and discover more about the Blessed day. Ostara is much like the Christian holiday of Easter (it would be since they set it up to mimic it on purpose)..it’s all about Spring, bunnies, eggs, lambs, spring cleaning, and flowers! I’ll be setting up my Ostara altar soon too and the spring cleaning needs to be started soon too! I love to do that. Purging, cleaning, organizing, simplifying the house makes me feel new and refreshed. I’ll be blogging about my activities along the way, getting ready for Ostara.
Don’t forget if you visit my blog to click on the Social vibe charity box. It just takes a couple of minutes and doesn’t cost you anything…it’s for the environment, the earth, Mother Nature so it’s the best cause in the world!
Have a happy Monday and Blessed Be,
