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.

June Cleaver made easy

Today was I tested out some home-made-easy tips. I must say they made my life easier! And of course... I just had to share them with all of you :).

First, Daddy wasn't paying attention to what he was doing last night and had a chocolate sauce microwave fiasco. I found out about it this morning... dried chocolate first thing in the morning.... not fun. My Oma told me to pop a mug with1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup white vinegar in the microwave for 7 minutes on high. Just wipe out the microwave with a rag. Took me a total of 7 minutes and 10 seconds start to finish. No chemicals needed!

Second tip I used to day, I found via pinterest, is an amazingly EASY way to clean the ceiling fan. Slide a fan blade into a pillow case. Clamp your hands around the opening and pull off. Repeat until you clean all your fan blades. Shake out the pillow case outside and toss in the wash. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Lastly, when you end up with a few feet of yarn (too small to really do anything) with make yourself a set of squares. You can sew them together to make blankets, place mats, pot holders, or rags. I'm starting a collection of them so I can make a patchwork afgan.

Aside from cleaning I spent a couple hours knitting dish rags today. I love these dish rags! Actually they should be called kitchen cloths. I use them for everything kitchen related and they are bigger than any dish rag I have ever seen. I love knitting. It's very methodical and the counting can clear your mind. It can also make you want to pull out your hair. The end results are almost always worth it though.

The eldest is having a great time in Texas. The baby and I miss him like crazy. Daddy is used to not being home at the same time as our oldest. But I think he secretly misses him too. I can't wait for him to get home. I hate when our family is not together.

Blessed be

As sore as possible...

Oh my bejeebus!! Not only did I shovel heavy snow for 2 hours yesterday, I also became a Zumba convert!! Granted my body slightly hates me...OK maybe completely. 30 minutes of the Ripped Toning session and I was sweating with burning muscles (in the best possible let way ever!) I can't wait until today's session. I'd love a chance to do the hour workouts but since the baby only stays entertained for about a half hour without fussing, I'm relegated to the shorter workouts. Not that they are not effective. Believe me...they are!

On a sadder note... the eldest leaves for his Texas trip tomorrow. His grandmother is picking him up in 2 hours. He'll be in Texas for a week to meet his Great great Grandmother for her 90th birthday. I'm very excited for him... but I hate when he's not around. I miss the kid like crazy. The baby isn't going to know what to do with himself. He adores his big brother.

We are planning to Face time while he is in Texas so he doesn't miss me reading Dragon Rider to him. This is going to be such a long week.

Well... I have a jam packed day today. I need to make some baby food on top of cleaning and laundry.

Blessed Be

Mama's Boys

I have been having a few really hard weeks lately. The week before this one I ended up pulling a muscle in my neck that left my right arm completely useless. I was lucky enough to have a wonderful support system. My oldest son remained home from school the first day it happened to help watch the baby. He even changed diapers for me! My grandmother came over for three days straight to help out watching the boys while Daddy was at work. She also took care of the vacuuming and dishes too! To be honest, it drove me insane to lay on the couch while Oma and the eldest did my chores.

The following week I needed up running a 102+ fever for three days. It was horrendous. Thank the Gods that Daddy was home early day one and home for the last two.

The eldest has been such an amazing helper lately. He's been making his own bed (something I usually do) and doing dishes. He is such a compassionate soul when it came to me being sick. There were no arguments over homework or helping out with baby fetching. The baby is all over the place since he started crawling.

The eldest and I have resumed our nightly ritual of me reading a chapter or two of Dragon Rider every night before bed. We say our thanks to the Goddess and I read to him by candlelight. It's a time where he and I get to spend a little one on one together every day.

Prior to tonight's bedtime story, the two kids and Daddy where sprawled out on the floor playing with blocks and wooden trains. All I can do is sit back and thank the Goddess for the blessings and the love our family shares.

I encourage everyone to take a moment and acknowledge the blessings in your life. They may seem few and far between but when you start to add them up you might just be surprised. I know I always am.

Brightest Blessings!!

She takes the cake...

And frosts like her life depends on it! :)

So I have been taking a cake decorating class as of late and let me just say, it is AWESOME!! I love every second of it. Not too mention all the prep work. I am in a class of twelve, with my mother, her friend , and a close friend of mine. The class is at 6:30 and lasts 2 hours. Time FLIES while we are hanging out. I have laughed more in the past 2 weeks than I have in almost a year.

I am addicted to learning new things. It is my belief that even if you have no one to start with... go anyway. Going to these classes is a great way to meet people who enjoy the same stuff you do.

Too many people now a days get far too caught up in what others think to just kick back and enjoy what they enjoy. Don't be one of them. Be the type of person who can strike up an hour long conversation with a wrong number (did that and was invited to a party).

On a completely different note... my eldest is finally receiving proper instruction in my ways. He came to me with a list of 8 different things he would like to learn about. I could find no faults in his points that he made. And since he's been receiving lessons everyday. He loves them and is very intent on doing his very best. I believe that is what builds a strong faith in kids, their willingness to learn without being forced into it.

Well this witchy woman has had a very long day and is looking forward to getting some rest.

Blessed be and sweet dreams!!
