Yep, another unplanned hiatus from blogging. Sorry about that. Full time work hours, camping up in the mountains for a pagan festival and then a chaotic trip back to Iowa & Wisconsin for a funeral, now recuperating and trying to reorient myself.
I really like this weekly check-in that Faye does at Aradia's Cauldron, hope its okay to borrow it to do my own check-in:
Watching: Pan's Labyrinth arrived from Netflix the other day, looking forward to watching it again (I saw it in the theatre when it came out). I remember it being strange, thought-provoking, sad and visually stunning.
Thinking: About the next few weeks ahead of me, what needs done for my shops, what needs done before vacay, what needs done right now.
Creating: Polymer clay decorated journal covers, pagan art journal circle pages. I am behind with both, need to play catch-up. Hate that.
Planning: Gathering recipe and decorating ideas for a witches' tea party I have planned for next month's full moon.
Reading: A Cast-Off Coven: A witchcraft mystery by Juliet Blackwell and Learning the Tarot: A book for beginners by Joan Bunning. The first book is some fun, rather mindless fluff; the second has great info, especially on wording questions for tarot and on interpreting Celtic Cross spreads, with which I am becoming quite fond of using.
Listening: Lately, Queen's Greatest Hits has been on my iPod a lot. At this very moment, I'm listening to the pounding of hammers as the neighbors have a new roof put on their house.
Realizing: Already the days are getting shorter. Where did summer go?
Trying: To get myself organized. Strange how an unplanned week away can make everything feel so up in the air for so long. Now I have to remember-- what was I doing before we left? Where do I start from here?
Feeling: Lots of back pain these last couple of days, trying to take it easy and not let it depress me. Chiro app't next week, hope I can make it until then.
