Auschwitz Anniversary

Hello everyone,

Well the official 70th anniversary of the freedom of the Jews from Auschwitz is on 1/27/2015. I am a big history buff and one of my favorite subjects of history is World War II. One day I would like to take my father to see Auschwitz. Why not my mother? She says she doesn't float or fly. So no choice in either. Auschwitz was a terrible camp and is one of the best known of the camps, though their were others that were used to kill other Jews. You can go to:…

New Year's Resolutions

Hi everyone,

Wow! It's been a long time since I have posted. I hope everyone is having a great new year so far! My new year is okay so far. I got a diet book called The 17 Day Diet by Dr. Mike Moreno and am trying to follow it. I am working hard to lose 100 lbs this year. My goal is to lose 5 lbs each month. I gained weight over 10 years. When I moved to SC from WV, I lost many friends and I turned to food as a friend. It's going to be hard to get it off, but you have to work hard on…

Mercury Rx Recap - It's That Time Again!

Yes, Ladies and Gents!  It's that time again. Mercury Retrograde, starts today and will go direct 2/11/15.

Now if I recall correctly. The last time I blogged about the Mercury Retrograde, I was undecided, if I wanted to shake Hermes hand or to punch him in the face.

Well, let's just say we had a couple of fire side chats since the last posting, that I no longer want to punch him in the face. Actually, I see him now, more like....hmmm... a Sage behaving like a Court Jester in…

Baby its cold outside!

Good morning all,

I thought I'd post a nice winter recipe and give you all an update. Normally I post recipes in my group spice goddess here on RD but since I want to include updated I will post it here instead.

In central Illinois is has been so cold lately. Below zero Temps and negative windchills. We've had winter weather advisories as well as windchill advisories and windchill warnings. We haven't gotten much snow yet just really really cold.

Definitely layering weather for… Continue

2015!

I was watching Criminal Minds with my mother and wasn't anywhere near my computer an hour ago, but Happy New Year!

Tomorrow, I go tracking down mead at the local wine shops (the internet says there are five different shops here that carry it). And I make my candles. *And* I buy new wood blanks and a better carving tool, because the runes I finally got around to making earlier this week are basically unusable. I couldn't focus for anything while making them and I kept having to…

Happy New Year!

Hey everyone,

Happy New Year! I'm personally looking forward to the new year! Yay 2015!

So...

I didn’t actually get to make my runes yesterday because my child was up too late and I was too tired to be trusted with a carving blade by the time she went to bed. Tonight is shaping up to be the same.

I might have to lock her in her bedroom so I can do it tomorrow night. There’s way too much going on during the day for me to get it done during the day.

The Crafty One - Homemade Yuletide Gifts

A real quickie here.  As I still have things to get done.  Like Pink Lemonade frosted Sugar Cookies and baked Jerk Chicken for a pot luck I'm attending to at work.  But just wanted to show a few things that just got completed.  There's more that I would like to show; crocheted hats and scarfs, but my little princesses who would under normal circumstances model them for me are still tucked away in their beds.  Lucky them.  No school, and they're taken full advantage of not having to wake up…

The Winter Solstice is here!

The light is returning!

I've been waiting all month for today. I have a Runeset to make. The wood is already cut into discs and sanded, but I've been waiting since Thanksgiving to do the rest of it. It just seems appropriate, somehow, to carve and consecrate them on the day the light begins to last longer.

AND it's a new moon, which just makes me happier, because new moons are good for new beginnings.



I do wish I had a bottle of mead handy, but I don't. The caramel…

Returning my gift

Hey everyone,

Well I said I was going to get myself a laptop for the holidays. However, the laptop came and it was too small for me. So I decided to save money until my birthday and go to Best Buy and physically get myself a laptop for my birthday. It will be a b-day present to myself. So i'm thinking as a holiday present I will get Dr. Phil's new weight loss book. Maybe it will help me. My parents are depressing me about my weight. So anyway, that's it for now.

So I am creating a person

Hey all,

I found out a few weeks before thanksgiving that I was pregnant. So I wanted to take a little bit to talk about my pregnancy so far and an update on everything else.

We found a home for 2 of the kittens. Pepper and monarch went to the same home, with a girl I work with and her 4 year old daughter. She sends me pics and keeps us updated on how they are growing and doing. We kept Apollo. He also adjusted well. He plays with onyx. The kittens mom, boots is still missing. She… Continue

My Ultimate Gift to Myself

Hey everyone,

Well the other day I ordered a laptop from QVC as a holiday gift to myself. I am so looking forward to it because the one I have is about 4-5 years old. I'm supposed to be getting it next week. On top of that I have a lot of stuff I have yet to do to prepare for the holidays. I'm sending out cards today. Also I have to send out care packages for the soldiers I write to. I have scarves to finish for my nephew and brother-in-law. Just a lot of stuff to do. However, i'm…
