Merry We Meet!!

This is my space to share, rant, rave, and even do a little bragging about my life choices, family, and where each are taking me.

Many people think 'witch' and immediately jump to the conclusion that I am some weirdo who's home smells like stale incense and thinks Mr. Potter is end all be all of magick. I hate to disappoint, but I am as normal as the next person. As much as a person can be normal.

So, please read on. Enjoy my trials and tribulations. Hopefully, you can learn something from the mistakes I make and the good fortunes that come my way.

Altar Egos ^_^

I've taken some of this time away from everyone to delve deeper into my spirituality and see how it affects my day to day life. I have to say, I was surprised to discover how much of my spirituality is reflected in my daily chores and what not. When I called myself a Christian I never had even a quarter of the devotion that I do to the path that I am on now. My life is almost consumed by it (in a good way). I sometimes feel like I am the equivalent to a bible thumper :)  Although I don't go around preaching and trying to convert everyone to my way of thinking.

I recently purchased a new pentacle, which is absolutely stunning! I wear it with an unashamed pride too. Something I never did with a cross. Honestly, I always felt ashamed to admit I was Christian. I hated telling people that I was. That was at a very young age (from the age of 6 to about 12) before I knew there was any other way.  

The hiatus from basically all technology (and most people) gave me time to really think and appreciate what (and who) I do have. Even though I was so depressed that at times I couldn't see it. I must say, the people I chose to surround myself with now are some of the most accepting, open, supportive, and loving people I have ever met. This includes a lot of my family as well.

As I took the time I needed to get my head straight (again) I began to take inventory. I have always known how important my family and friends were... I just never realized how dependent on them for strength I was. It's more than wonderful to know that when I am at my lowest they have always been there for me. I have been REALLY low.

I mean Daddy even threw me a bbq to help me start to feel better. It was last minute and kind of thrown together (I'm a horrible control/planning freak!) but the sweetest thing he's done in awhile. That man would move mountains if he thought it would make me happy. And yes, I realize how truly truly blessed I am to have him in my life. Believe me it is not easy to be with me. There are times I still wonder why in the world he chose me.

Anyway! So to honor my Goddesses and Gods I finally got around to putting together a proper altar. It's still an evolving art in progress. And it's not like I didn't have an altar before... in fact I had 2. One in my bedroom and one on my kitchen window sill. I still have them, I just also created a large one. Unfortunately, the only space I have in our house to make a large altar was in the basement. At the same time though... it's kind of like my own SILENT sacred space. Eventually, I'd like to move it out into the breeze way of our home, along with a couple comfy chairs. But for now, it's perfect where it is.

My eldest son decided to do some rearranging before these photos were taken.  So the layout is slightly different. The sticks were also replaced with twisted willow branches. I need to get a vase for flowers and better arrangements of branches and such. I have a few other ideas as well... and I'd like a few decorative plates and bowls. Like I said, it's an art work in progress :) The table also has a drawer in the front that I keep matches, extra sage sticks, and oils in. There is also my carry-all altar box underneath as well for when I need to make it portable.

The sculptures on the altar were made by me. I was watching 2 extra kids one day and decided to have a craft day. They made a time machine, a skull, and one of them made a sculpture for the baby with his name on it.

I take time out of every day to light the candles on the altar and be thankful for all my blessings, the trials that make me stronger, the things that make me smile, and for each day that I have a chance to do it all over again.

Take a minute or two out of your day and look at all that you have been offered. What exactly have you learned from the rough patches? Where could you have done things differently? Looking back is always 20/20... so how do you want to shape your future? It may not seem like you are going anywhere at the moment. But life, like my altar, is always changing. How are you changing with it? And is it the way you want it to be? If not... CHANGE IT! Everything starts with the first step :)

Blessed Be and Brightest Blessings dearest friends!

Short Hiatus...

I'm currently dealing with a rough bout of depression.  I'm doing the best I can to get back to my normal life, but it may take a few days. Unfortunately that means I probably won't be posting too often over the next few days. I will get back to posting as soon as I start feeling better. With my bipolar being the way it is, that could be days or just a few hours.

Book Worms!

I realize the past few days I had been slacking on writing new posts. I'd like to say I've been really busy, but truth is... I needed a technological break! At the beginning of the week so much of my energy had been leeched out of me that I needed to take a few days to recharge. I spent a lot of hours outside soaking up as much of the universes energy as I could. One day I even took a 2 hour nap outside under our giant maple with the baby and the dog. The recharge felt amazing!! It also allowed for me to really get into my new book! (I had just ordered 3) Today, I have decided to review the new books that I bought. As I finish each one I will let you all know what I thought of them and whether or not I recommend them!

Without further adieu...

As I said, I recently finished the book, Cottage Witchery by Ellen Dugan. I have to say it was one of the most fast paced, well written "spell" books I have read! The book is focused on hearth and home magick. It is chocked full of real life stories from her own life. Ms. Dugan jumps right in to the home and hearth spells within the first few pages, starting with the blessing of the heart of the home. Her writing style is very down to earth and friendly. It's more like you are sitting down and chatting with a friend than actually reading.

Within a day of starting the book I ended up using 5 of her spells, enchantments, and charms. With a slight tweaking here and there. Her spells are definitely geared towards Wiccans who practice The Craft. But she encourages you to make the spells your own.

This amazing book also offers the reader worksheets and a household journal to help you organize your magickal items that you have in your home, yard, and neighborhood already. I'm a big lister and journaler (obviously) so this was a HUGE selling point for me.

Her spells (for the most part) are quick and easy. Perfect for those of us who don't have time to cast full circles, need to get dinner on the table, and have children running around the house, and a baby that needs to be fed! Both Ellen and I encourage people to adapt her spells as well as write their own to increase the spell's potency. But it really nice to have a jumping off point or a reference.

I HIGHLY recommend this book to beginners (who already have a working knowledge of casting) and veteran casters alike. I cannot wait to acquire a few more of the books Ellen Dugan has written.

Next book on the reading list is Circle Round by Starhawk, Anne Hill, and Diane Baker!

Brightest Blessings!!

Adding a little color!!

I decided this morning that our front yard could use a little color! What is the best way to do that? Well... I could repaint my house... or a much cheaper and quicker idea was to add a few pots of flowers!

My sons and I packed up, jumped in the car, and headed to the local nursery. We found 2 red Mums, 1 Bronze Mum, a Jade Plant, an Aloe plant, a tropical terrarium, and a Venus Flytrap. We also bought pots and potting soil for all of these plants. Of course, the Aloe and Jade plants can't be outdoors because of Michigan weather.

Before today we had no house plants! I couldn't believe that I went this long without any greenery in our home. Besides the benefits of having the plants in house, the energy the plants give off (all living things give off energy) has filtered through each of the rooms. As if this house didn't feel homey before! I just walk in the door and can't help but smile every time!

Aside from bringing nature into our home, I made 2 new protection charms, a small altar on my kitchen window sill, and charmed all the house plants and outdoor flowers, and had the time to cast a productivity spell for a dear friend (with permission)! Also, I took the time to pack up the boys and walk down to their Grandmother and Grandfather's house for a visit.

Needless to say... I am exhausted today! I have a few things that I plan to do tomorrow. Such as: sanding and spray painting a bookcase, doing laundry, bathing the baby, and cooking dinner. Aside from that... I plan to take it easy tomorrow. I do believe that there will be a large chunk of time being spent in the shade of our Dogwood tree staring at clouds. Providing that it doesn't rain.

Well, have a great night my friends! It's late and I am VERY tired.

Blessed Be!

Smudges and blessings

Today was a phenomenal day, for the most part. It hit a little snafu, but I will get into that a little later.

The start of my day began with a visit from my brother, his girlfriend, and their very handsome pit bull! We spent a decent chunk of time letting the dogs play in the backyard and soaked up so good vibes from the sun!

After they departed, I got down to it and scrubbed my house clean from top to bottom, stem to stern! There is nothing as instantly gratifying as sweeping away all the bad energy, negative vibes, and of course that pesky animal fur that collects EVERYWHERE!

Once the house was physically clean, I took a quick break to clean myself! Boy, did that shower feel wonderful!

Here is where my day went slightly haywire... My eldest came home from spending the week with his dad in Florida. He had a great time. But man was he out of sorts! He was overtired, hungry, and just an all around intolerable person to be around. We went out to dinner with my grandparents (bad idea). When we got home, he was relegated to his room so that he could calm down. He and the baby ended up taking naps at the same time.

I took that time to smudge the entire house! Including my children (who were still sleeping), the dog, and both the kittens. I also cleaned the nightmares from my eldest's dream catchers as well. I love the smell of white sage. All that is left is to smudge Daddy when he comes home.

I recently bought 2 new white sage smudge sticks and a Abalone shell (that is bigger than the baby's head! :D )

 This is my new smudge set! (I also have a feather that is not pictured here.) The smaller shell and mini smudge stick were bonuses! I gifted them to my eldest so that he can smudge his room when he feels the need.

This is the stand that the large Abalone shell sits on. It's gorgeous! I love the setup. I keep all setup on my dresser as a sort of mini altar. I'm still in the process of setting up my new altar.

After I smudged my entire home, including the basement, I blessed the heart of my home (which for me is the kitchen). I will enter that ritual on the ritual page tomorrow. 

Afterwards, I could just feel the positive energy flowing through my home. To keep the negative energies, and other unwanted's, out of the house I salted all the entryways into our home. I've never smudged daily, but with the coming school year and all the stress that brings, I may start smudging daily. At least for the time being.

Well, The Hunger Games are on and my eldest is bugging for me to curl up on the bed and watch it with him... so it is time for me to head to bed.

Blessed Dreams my friends!

Lazy days of summer


I spent my morning, albeit slightly busy, in the backyard on a blanket with our baby reading a new book with the dog lazing about next to us! It was absolutely wonderful to spread out and just enjoy the gorgeous day! It's not too hot (72... such a wonderful temperature), sun is shining, and giant puffy white clouds are hanging in the bluest of skies!

Since I live in a city, it was far from quiet. I still love getting lost in the nature that surrounds me though. I laid the blanket down in the shade of our huge maple tree next to a patch of little yellow flowers (yea, they are just weeds, but to me... flowers are flowers!).  The baby was on his tummy struggling to get to the flowers in front him. Cooing and grunting as he tried hard as ever to shimmy his way over there. I had to giggle at the look of sheer frustration on his face.

I wish I could just freeze the weather to be like this all the time! Although, I do love the cold and snow! I even love autumn when all the leaves are falling and the trees are settling in for their wintry slumbers. The only season I really DON'T enjoy is summer. It's far too hot and I have to avoid sunlight most of the time (long story that I am not ready to get into here just yet).

As the baby and I soaked up the positive energies flowing around us, I had an AMAZING idea! I have about a 10-15 foot space next to our garage that opens into the rest of our backyard. It is separated from the front by a white picket fence.

Yea, I seriously lucked out there! I'm going to see if Daddy would be cool with me tearing out the grass there and making a flower/herb garden. There is a gate that leads into our backyard, so I could put down a stepping stone path or make a mossy walkway! The possibilities are endless!! I'm going to start planning it out as soon as I get the go ahead. I really don't think he'd tell me no. But since he lives here too, I still have to ask what he thinks. I could grow so many magickal flowers and herbs. I'd go out and pick flowers for inside weekly.... *sigh* just the thought is making me beam with joy!

I will post designs and ideas on the gardening page as I work through this process. I wouldn't be able to plant anything until next year... but the planning is all part of the fun!

Well, I apparently have some research to do, I must be off!

Brightest Blessings on this wonderful day!!

Random Rants...

Rant numero uno #

The other day my grandmother came over to drop off a recipe book for me. Totally cool! As we sat there chatting it up for a bit she came around (yet again) to asking me if I was going to baptize our son. *insert head shake here*

Her question was "So have you thought anymore about baptizing the baby?". I answered, ever so politely (even though I really wanted to scream) "I have, and no."

Now, my whole stance on baptism is and always has been, you should only be baptized if YOU decide that is the faith you want to follow. I can see parents dedicating themselves to raising their children in whatever faith they deem worthy. However, I believe it should be your own choice to baptized into the faith.

She continued with "Well, it wasn't long ago that you were taking classes to become a Catholic."

Now to clarify this statement, yes I did go and take adult classes at her church in my journey to find my path. I also took classes and spoke with religious leaders from other religions as well! I didn't feel any kind of connection with any of them! I believe the reason why was because I had already known that I was a witch and I was fighting against my own faith because I wanted to be accepted by my family. A completely idiotic concept! How can you be happy if you deny yourself in the process! I have since come to the realization that if they cannot accept me for who and what I am... they don't need to be a part of my life! This goes for anyone who knows me really.

My refusal to baptize my child does NOT mean that I will raise my boys pagan either. Yes, I do intend to include them in my practices (not my spell casting however. 1. They are way to young and 2. They have no idea what they are doing 3. I don't allow dabbling in my house! 4. I don't want anything set on fire) My children WILL grow up spiritual, I WILL teach them everything I know about other religions. I have studied a vast majority of religions for well over 15 years now. I WILL let them decide their own path. Most importantly, I WILL support and accept them 100% in whatever they chose.

I also told her about an argument that my parent's friend and I got into. He said I should just baptize the baby to make her happy. She looked at me and said "I don't want you to baptize him to make please me at all. That has to be your choice!" My grandmother is very understanding about how I live my life. I don't do ANYTHING just to please someone else at the risk of compromising what I believe or how I feel about something. I refuse to live my life to please others. It's just not in my nature! ( I get it from my father! )

Rant numero dos:

I am so tired of seeing posts about witches and pagans on my facebook feed that have Wiccans defending witches by lumping ALL pagans and witches into Wicca! I'm sorry but NO! I'm not a wiccan, but I AM a witch! Let me just throw this out there...


We do not all follow the wiccan rede. We do not all believe in the same Lord and Lady! Not all pagans are witches! Not all pagans are Wiccans! Research before you open your damn traps!! You're giving all of us a bad name by your ignorance!

Had to get that out there...

Ok, I do believe that that is that for the rants! I've sufficiently released my anger for the time being!

Have a blessed day!

Black cats and voodoo dolls...

Alright, so maybe no Voodoo dolls.

We let the cats roam the house for the first time today. We want them to comfortable in the house before the dog and the cats roam at the same time. I was in the kitchen making some dill dip (recipe is on the kitchen witchin' page) for Daddy. Moon Baby was all curled on his lap and Daddy hollers into the kitchen "It's kinda funny that you got a black cat."

I popped my head into his line of vision and gave him a quizzical look. I had no clue what he was getting at. Moon Baby picked me, not the other way around.

He smiled and pointed at Moon "Black cat." He pointed at me "Witch." He smiled "It's kinda funny."

I had to laugh. I never really thought of it that way. I had always wanted a black cat, but I never choose my animals, they always choose me.

Moon Baby is much smaller than Dexter, almost half his size. But Moon is a jerk! Lol. He always has to have whatever attention you are devoting to Dex. Moon will put himself between you and Dex at any chance he gets. He wants both hands on him at all times! And if poor Dex decides he wants to eat Moon will worm his way into the same food dish (I have one for each of them, same with the water) and start eating underneath Dex's chin.

You can almost see Dex sigh in frustration! He waits for Moon Baby to finish then eats his fill. They are so much fun to watch, and even more fun to watch their personalities develop. Even if my little Moon is a bit of a weasel. I love him regardless :) But at the end of the day... the boys are inseparable.

Blessed Be my friends!

Sunday, August 12, 2012


It's been a handful of days since I last posted! It's been an insanely busy time for us. I feel like I have done a ton of things to keep me busy. In reality, probably not that much. Here is a list of updates though!

**Update on Moon Baby and Dexter**

They are getting along splendidly with each other. Daddy has had Dexter and Bella curled up together on the bed. Moon Baby is still skittish around Bella and gets the dog all worked up. So as of right now, they are still separated. I really don't think that will last too much longer.

**Son #1 Update**

He is spending the week in Florida with his father and his father's family. They are going to Lego Land and the Disney parks. He was so excited when he left that he called me when they arrived at the condo they are renting. Walking through the entire place, he described it in detail and promised me lots of pictures. We are going to put his trip into a scrapbook when he gets home. If he remembers to take pictures that is :)

**Baby Update**

Little one just had his 2 month checkup this past Friday. He is a little chunky butt!! Weighing in at a whopping 15 pounds 4 ounces!! Chubs is sleeping through the night. I'm talking like a solid 9-10 hours every night!! Lucky me!! He's rolling over already too and trying to crawl. Chubs has become very vocal in the past few weeks too. The minute he wakes up in the morning he's all chatterboxy with me. We are loving every minute of it!

**Daddy Update**

Just found out that he is being promoted again as soon as the new store opens! Oh, yea.... and a bit of bad news, our truck is broken : / The muffler fell off. That is supposed to be getting fixed on Tuesday. I think that is about it.

**An Update for Mommy**

MY DRYER GOT FIXED!! I can finally do laundry at my own home again. Unfortunately, the heating element is going so it takes FOREVER to dry clothes... but I can still do them at home so I don't mind so much. We may be getting a new washer and dryer soon though. (Is it odd that this is the first exciting thing I think of for me? *shrugs*)

Also... even more exciting for me, I met a medium today! He lives close by too. I may end up doing an interview with him soon. It all happened because he had a table out on the curb that I wanted to place next to the washer and dryer for my soaps and such. He is a very enjoyable soul to be around. Very easy to talk too and has so many wonderful stories. I went over for a table and ended up leaving with a very intriguing friend!

**Blog Update**

I have updated the Kitchen Witchin' page though. I have had some really good recipes as of late. Most of which make their way onto here. The ones that don't are still in need of a little tweaking. Check back frequently too, I try to add at least one recipe a week.

I have a few ideas for the upcoming blog posts this week. As always though, if you have any questions, comments, ideas, ANYTHING at all... send me a message, leave me a comment, or email me (! I love to hear from you and I love answering questions! Some of my best blog posts are the ones that were suggested by readers. That is also how some made it to their own pages.

Brightest Blessings My Friends!

Let the universe decide!

So, today, my son, my mother, and I went out to the Pet Adoption Center. I had found out earlier in the morning that Gizmo, the little kitten that my family had fallen in love with had been adopted earlier in the weekend. But I told my son that we could go and look anyway. Perhaps we could find someone else to bring home and add to our family.

We dropped the baby off at my grandmother's house. We stopped by the pet store so I could get some food, litter, and a few toys for the new baby. Ended up finding a WONDERFUL new holistic cat food. I will post a link to the site. Then it was off to the shelter.

When we got there, we were greeted by no less than 50 kittens! The woman who helped us told me that there were currently 160+ cats and kittens at the shelter and another 100 were supposed to be brought in later in the day.

**Side Note: SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR CAT!! There are so many homeless kittens that NEED loving homes!**

Anyway, as we roamed through the aisles of kittens in cages we came across a cage that held 4 kittens. A black male kitten saw me and crawled over the three other kittens to get to me. He was sitting on top of his sister (who was also black) and sliding off repeatedly just so I could have a chance to pet him. He was located half way down the hallway and we still had at least another 30 cats to look at. I had already found the kitten I was adopting though!

Well, not 10 feet away was a very cute white and grey tiger striped kitten who was a week older than the black sweetheart I had just left. This kitten (named Dexter) instantly fell in love with my son!! He reached out to catch my son's attention and desperately cried for his pets! My son looked up at me with big hopeful eyes and asked me "Can we PLEASE take him home?"

Who was I to tell him 'no' after he had just lost his cat Miss Diamond?! I made him look through the rest of the cats first to make sure that is who he REALLY wanted. There was NO changing his mind. He'd fallen in love with the little cutie. I am not one to deny a little boy love. *sigh*

But my mind and heart still yearned for the little black kitten that was so desperate for love.

So I did the only thing I could do. We adopted 2 kittens.

These two precious sweethearts are Dexter (my son wanted to keep his name as is) and Moon Baby! Dex is 15 weeks and Moon Baby is 14 weeks. Although, Dex is probably twice the size of my little Moonie. Moon Baby is such a lover. He just wants to be pet and snuggled all the time. Dex is much more... adventurous! He wants to roam and explore and play with anything and everything he can get his little paws on!

My mother also left the shelter today with two little ones of her own.

This is Time, she is Moon Baby's sister. At the time of this picture, she was so shy that I had to stick the camera under my mother's coffee table and snap a pic blindly. She is already coming out from under there on her own.

This is Boutsy aka Bout. She was playing chase/hide and seek with my son. She is a feisty little girl! It's so much fun to watch her tear around my parent's living room!   (Bout Time is the name of my parent's sailboat)

All the kittens are adjusting very well to their new homes! Our kittens are currently hanging out in my son's bedroom because we want to slowly introduce them to our German Shepperd. Who is very interested in meeting them. Just not too sure how interested they are in meeting her.

At the current point in time that this post is being written, Daddy still has NO idea that we adopted 2 new babies! Hopefully, he will be pleasantly surprised when he comes home from work today. He is such an animal lover though... I don't see an extra set of paws being a problem.

It was worth getting the two kittens just to see how happy my son is! I expect a lot of fun stories in the very near future!

Brightest Blessings!!

Candle Magick

I was recently asked for some help casting spells and using candle magick. I gave her some books on the subject that had been recommended to me. If you are interested, you can email me and I will pass the list along to you. ( Although, I may be making a reference page soon and listing books that I have in my collection and recommendations from other pagans as well.

Anyway... I wanted to give a list of candle colors and what they can be used for. Certain rituals call for certain colors, depending on what emotion or goal you are trying to reach. In my personal opinion, I have always used color based on the connection I feel with that color. If I am missing the desired color, I usually go with white. There are two reasons for that. The first of which being that white represents the Goddess to me and a clean slate. Secondly, the color white is the combination of ALL color. So obviously, the color I need is in there somewhere.

Here is the list:

* White *
The Goddess
Higher Self
(substitutes any other color)

* Black *
Repels Negativity

Special Favors
To Influence Friendships
* Silver *
The Goddess
Astral energy
Female energy
* Purple *
Third Eye
Psychic Ability
Hidden Knowledge
To Influence People in High Places
Spiritual Power
* Blue *
Element of Water
Good Fortune
Opening Blocked Communication
Spiritual Inspiration
*Green *
The Element of Earth
Physical Healing
Monetary success
Mother Earth
Tree and Plant Magic
Personal Goals
* Pink *
Planetary Good Will
* Red *
Element of Fire (this happens to be my element)
Fast action
Career Goals
Driving Force
Blood of the Moon

* Orange *
General Success
Property Deals
Legal matters

* Copper *
Professional Growth
Business Fertility
Career Maneuvers
Money Goals

* Gold *
The God
Promote Winning
Power of the Male
* Yellow *
The Element of Air
The Sun
Logical Imagination
To Accelerate Learning
To Break Mental Blocks

When I work with candle magick I like to anoint my candles with an oil, either one used in the ritual itself, one that corresponds with the candle color (I  may add a list of commonly used oils at a later date), or one that sparks a memory related to what I am trying to achieve. I also use this when I am sending energy to a friend or into a given situation for a desired outcome.

**Now, once again, I feel I need to remind those who have not read my entire blog... I am NOT Wiccan. But I am a witch and do practice magick. I don't always follow the same rules when casting spells that most Wiccans follow. For the most part, I rarely interfere with others free will. But there have been occasions when I have. I do my best to make sure the spells I cast only influence me or the person who asked me to cast for them. But it doesn't always work that way. I am a firm believer in karma though, so be careful... what goes around will come back at you at least 3 fold! (learned that the hard way)**

I will post a simple candle magick spell that I use to attract positive things into my life on the ritual page. I refrain from posting other spells because I do not support dabbling. It can be dangerous if you don't know what you are really doing. But I believe that this spell anyone can do, despite religious beliefs. If you feel uncomfortable calling it a spell, think of it as more of a positive affirmation! And you can always insert your God's name in place of my reference to the Goddess.

Brightest Blessings and Blessed Be!!

Could be karma, kismet, or just plain serendipity!

My mother called me earlier today. She was bored and wanted something to do. I asked her if she wanted to go out to grab some dinner. We ended up going to a delicious Greek restaurant that has the absolute BEST Greek dressing!

When she came to pick me and the boys up, she brought with her some paints (for a birdhouse project I have waiting for my eldest) and also a folder. Which I looked at very curiously.

She handed me 4 sheets of paper from inside said folder. They were info sheets on kittens that are up for adoption. A woman on her route fosters kittens and gave my mother the info on the babies. Of course I HAD to look at them. I fell in love with one of the babies. A very cute kitten named Gizmo. My son ended up loving the same one.

This is Gizmo

Come Monday, with Daddy's approval of course, we will be heading out to the shelter to bring said baby home. My mother wants to adopt two of the litter mates! I have been the one to hold out on getting another animal. But I do not believe that I can say no to this.

The only reason why I held out on getting a cat was because my dog was very... excitable (Bella has never hurt a cat, chased them... sure. Even cornered them. But not once hurt them.). However, I don't know if it's age or what, but the last time we were at my mother's, Bella simply ignored the cat the entire time we were there. I believe that if we were to introduce her to the kitten, she would be perfectly fine.

Perhaps it's time our family grows by one more 4 legged member :)

By the way... I am working on the Astral Projection post. It's just taking a moment. I still can't decide whether or not to make it a page.

Promised Post

I know that I promised a post on Astral Projection today. However, with the wealth of research that I have come across, along with interviews and personal knowledge...I am going to need a little more time to compile everything and put it in a comprehensive post. Actually, I am debating on whether or not to turn this solitary up-coming post into it's very own page. There is so much information on this topic! I just wanted to let you all know that I am doing my due diligence and not rushing a post just to have a post for you! I much prefer to give my loyal friends quality info! So, please, just bear with me for a day or two! Thanks everyone, and thanks to those who are helping me out with this!

Late night postings


It is very late for me... almost 1 am. I've been up since 6 am yesterday. I cleaned my entire house, walked the kiddies to the park, went grocery shopping, picked the baby up from the sitters, made dinner, did dishes, and managed to entertain a few friends today. All in all, it has been a VERY busy day in the keeper of the cauldron's life! Even as I am sitting here swallowing back yawns, I realize how truly truly blessed my life is. (And yes, it required 2 'truly's') I have amazing children. A wonderful home. And people who surround me with their love!

The full moon last night made me feel so recharged and refreshed. I woke up raring and willing to start my day with a HUGE smile on my face. It's been plastered there ever since.

Tomorrow, I am dedicating my post to a friend of mine. Tomorrow's topic will be all about Astral Projection! I'm excited to write about it.

Now... it is far too late, and I am long past exhausted! So Goodnight my friends!

Blessed Be
