Up In The Wee Hours....

Good morning everyone!

I have been having a weird habit of getting up before the sun this week. Not quite sure why, its not like my sleep schedule has been that messy lately....

I do think it may have something to do with the full moon. The full moon is this morning at 9:36am and we also have a lunar eclipse at 9:32am. It is also known as the "Long Nights Moon."

Tonight is my work's little christmas get together called to Po' Folks Ball [for us poor folk lol].

I went shopping yesterday for the rest of my Yule gifts but i think i overspent my funds, so today i have to take some stuff back [which i will just have to repurchase with my next check, i wont need them til after christmas anyways].

My poor tree has seen better days. Unfortunately my little black kitty, Salem, aka Chubby Wubby has taken it upon himself to undecorate the bottom half of the tree, so slowly night after night the ornaments are making their way to the top half of the tree, making for a very unbalance tree.

I got some great deals yesterday at a consignment shop [one i used to go to for my school dances to get my dresses] and got a very cute satiny purple dress for the dance tonight, some clothes for handsome, and lily--she really needed new pants and for 4 bucks a pair you cant go wrong! Then i found the clearance rack----found a few good workout shirts for a dollar a piece! I just couldnt pass it up!

I also found a nice suit for 9 bucks [the last suit i bought cost about 70!] but unfortunately when i got home i realized it wasnt in my trunk with the rest of my stuff. I do not know how i missed it in the bagging process [and i get sooooo peeved when i buy things then leave them at the store---such a waste!].

This will be a busy week for me. Besides the usual school and work, i also need to finish some paperwork for our church's council meeting/ update member forms [which are done i am just double checking everything and updating other records], i need to write and plan what to bring and do for our Yule ritual which is also the same day we are doing our Yule dinner with the inlaws.

I love this time of the year but i soooo cant wait for it to be over and get my life back to normal. I love winter---not for the cold or the snow or the holidays [tho those things are still ok--minus the cold i hate being cold!] but it is the time of the year when i can wall myself up in my toasty little house and have some inner journeying/ me time and work on projects i have been putting off.

I really want to get into making more candles, i have a lot of things for it which i purchased long ago this past year but i have yet to take the time to really delve in and experiment with styles and colors and consistency etc.

How cool it will be to finally be able to make all of my candles myself---so much added energy!

I really would like a mini-taper mold but have yet to find one. I do have pillar candle mold and votive so that will be good.

Anywho i will get off here now and try to wake up handsome....he wanted to go hunting this am!

P.S.

Just had my first week of kettlebell--today will be day 3, and i can really feel it in all my muscles. Its a lot of work but i know it will be worth it!

Love, J.

Productive Day

I had a very productive day today. I woke up, got my bill organizer updated since i had a new computer and my old computer died, and took with it all my organizer things. Then I went to handsome's work to give him a different pair of shoes and his meds, then i went to the bank to turn in donations, to vgs to turn in community share points, walmart to get a new water bottle and frame for my third year certificate, and new headphones for the gym, then went to the gym for about an hour and ran into my handsome's brother's girlfriend lol. Then i got a full tank of gas, food, then i am back home. Now im trying to get organized before my love comes home then he is cooking venison and fried mashed potatoes!

Sight, Seeing, and Such!

Went to get an eye exam today, and to get new eye wear. Good news is the doc said my eyes are very healthy, that the prescription is the same in both eye (they weren't 5 years ago when i had my last exam---well overdue!), and that my prescription has been staying relatively the same, which is great!

The part I hate most is the glaucoma test, you know, the one where it blasts each eye with air! Yeah I really hate that, I ALWAYS jump, then feel foolish lol.

Then after that, I got a "contacts 101" class to practice putting those little bugger in and taking them out. Not as easy as I thought because you really cannot see what you are doing, and if you blink, you have to start all over again!

But once they are in, they aren't so bad. First time getting them in made my eyes all watery and red/bloodshot, but that quickly went away, and the second time I did it was like I was a pro. Now my hard part is removing them, but I think I have the maneuver down. I'll have to take them out at about 2p today (its 1:20p with now) because I am only supposed to keep them in for 4 hrs today, then increase by 2 hrs each day for a week until I go back for my follow up appointment. They showed me how to clean and store them, and what to do if I drop them etc.

I guess the kind I got are "soft lenses", the really floppy bendy kinds, that are good for 2 weeks, remove at night, I believe the max time to wear them at one time is 14 hours, after my 1 week of adjusting to them. I have to kind of build up to the 14 hrs.

Then I got to pick out my new frames. Some may say I'm a stickler, but I went for the closest ones I could pick to resemble my old pair. I like them being small and thin frame, not those big chunky dark frames.

I also got to pick out a nice pair of frames for sunglasses. I haven't been able to wear sunglasses in over a decade lol. (Since about 5th grade.) So this is a big deal for me. It will be so nice to be able to wear them when I'm fishing!

So I got to take the contacts with me to adjust for the week, and I have to wear my old glasses for 7-10 business days until my glasses and sunglasses are done and ready for pickup. I am so excited, and LOVE not having to wear glasses to see!

I can't even begin to describe how nice it is not not be stuck with metal on my face, and can actually look like I'm SUPPOSED to look as nature intended! And to still be able to read and see!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

That's it for now.

Time to try takin these suckers out before work --- my 4 hours are almost up!

Spring Vs. Winter





Just when it begins to feel like spring, winter comes back. Apparently it doesn't give two squats about the Spring Equinox lol.




We had a great Ostara celebration Saturday.


I made:

Pink Stuff



Salad



and Deviled Eggs



So I have had a few days off from work and it's been very nice being able to do what I want at my own leisure and not feeling rushed. I had my candles lit and soundscapes going while cleaning yesterday, and it was very peaceful.


I'm trying to remember what I did all week..... I know I had class the day of the ice storm, which really I only had class for 25 minutes (Astronomy) because they said they were closing at 11a, instead of just closing for the whole day like everyone else, so i still had to drive out there..grr.



After I got out I went to Walmart to cut my hair! Then went to Dort Federal to order checks for SBS, then to the gym for about 2 hrs. Then came home, diddied around a bit, then went to Genesys to meet Kade Owen Ellingson. One of my best friends just had her baby boy! So I went and met my little feller---I am his godmother, or as her man called me, his fairy WITCH mother lol.

Oh now I remember, monday was handsome's birthday, so I took him and his parents to Fuddruckers, and Lily was able to come too. It was very nice. I think they all enjoyed it, and it was nice that we got to go a bit early so it wasnt busy and we didn't have to wait a long time for our food. I should have taken a picture of my burger...it was super good!



So anywho, I am just going to keep working on my 3rd yr studies until handsome gets out of work and lily gets here. Tomorrow I am helping my sister move out to Howell. Then I go back to work Sunday.


Hope everything is going well!

Spring is in the Air!

Tomorrow is our Ostara ritual....and really looking forward to it. It is sure to be a lot different than what we usually do! And it's nice to have a break since I led the last 2 for my 3rd year requirements. I still have one more (Beltane) and I have to do a mock life-event ritual.

I am been in a super cleaning mode. My home is not very messy to begin with being that I am the neat-freak-Virgo that I am, but it doesn't keep little piles of stuff from accumulating in hidden places.

It all started with Kevin cleaning his side of the closet out, so I cleaned out my side and put stuff in storage, then I cleaned the rest of the room, cleaned up my witchie books and altars, and started a new one for moon time, not sure yet what I'm going to do with it though, right now it's set up, but I have yet to figure out a routine that I would like to get in to honor the Red Tent time.

Then I tackled my desk and all the papers that needed to be filed, plus cleaned out my file cabinet because it was so full I had no room for anything else to be added. Cleaned my pantry, got dishes and laundry caught up (which of course will never be completely done, it's a daily thing in my home), my counter tops are organized, cat boxes clean, trash and recycling have been to the road and picked up, organized my cork board, took care of my animals things (plus got them up to date on shots, neutered my only one who still had parts lol, got new id tags, plus the one who got neutered also got microchipped), organized my herbs and made their labels better, and cleaned up other odds and ends.

I still have to tackle the mess under my kitchen sink that is super unorganized and my storage closet in the bathroom.

Then I think I will be all set until the weather gets good enough to organize my storage unit and outdoor shed, and then I can begin readying my gardens and flower pots. My daffodils and tulips have been above ground for a few weeks now, they aren't really large, but they are big enough to tell which is which. Really looking forward to the blooms---its my first year with daffodils, and i planted more tulips because last year someone chopped off all the heads of the few i had, and if you are a tulip planter you know that it takes from fall til spring for them to finally sprout, and tulips only make one flower per bulb a year, so once the head dies, its gone, at least until the next year, so you can imagine how angry i was!

Oh yeah, I forgot, I also just spent a good hour in Lily's room organizing her dresser and bedroom going through her clothes and taking out what no longer fits to put in storage, and make room for newer clothes. I got her a few really cute spring dresses that I can't wait to dress her up in.

I bought some really nice things for my garden from hobby lobby last week that I can't wait to put up. I found some really heavy cast iron hooks, one moon and one sun, to hang on the back of the shed above my garden, and i got a nice hanging cast iron plate looking thing that hangs from three chains i was thinking of using for offerings since the squirrel wont be able to get into it.

So this is the major stuff happening this week

Saturday - Ostara Ritual/ Super Full Moon
Monday- Kevin's 27th B-day (Taking him and his parent's out to Fudrucker's for dinner)
Tuesday- HESI test for school (entrance exam needed to get into the program)
Wednesday- one of my best friends is scheduled for a c-section at 3:30p for her baby boy Kade
(They said I am his godmother/ fairy "witch" mother lol)

So it's gonna be a fun busy week!

Hope you all are having a great time and are getting ready for spring as well!

2011 Virgo Predictions

Year 2011 Overview

2011 is all about showing Virgo the money. Being the bona fide workaholic of the zodiac, you have certainly earned your right to demand the six figures through long hours and heaps of your own blood, sweat and tears over the past several years. And you've certainly suffered enough losses and endured enough tests of faith in the financial department to prove your substance. As much as you get off on the occasional masochistic work jag, you can't help but wonder when things are going to get easier. Well hang tight Virgin, because the bonus you so desperately need and deserve should arrive between March and June of 2011. A major conglomeration of fiery planets activates your sector of other people's money, including the luckiest planet of them all -- Jupiter. If that doesn't bring some kind of windfall, loan or access to a serious line of credit you're going about your business all kinds of wrong.

You're also getting ready to shed some serious skin starting this March. With Uranus, the change god joining forces with Jupiter in your sector of psychological change: you're preparing to face some serious skeletons in your psychic closet. Rather than applying your brilliant yet critical mind in assessing other people's shortcomings, you're ready to confront your own strengths and weaknesses on a new level. This year favors the clean slate approach to all matters of self-help, renewal and transformation of your personality. You're leaving many aspects of your old self behind in order to become a better and more authentic version of who you really are.

Year 2011 Career

Now that Chiron is finally coming out of your work sector this February after an extended seven-year saga of pushing every social insecurity button known to man, your work environment should be considerably less painful. If you've had trouble with co-workers or employees, you'll finally feel like you're getting some thicker skin compliments of Neptune moving out of your work sector between April and August. Use this planetary reprieve to take a more detached attitude towards all of the drama.

The absence of Chiron and Neptune in your work sector facilitates renewed confidence in your talents. You can stop second-guessing your skills and put more energy into furthering your assets. With a major eclipse pattern hitting your career sector in June, you can expect monumental changes to occur in your professional life between June and next January. This is the year for your hard work to pay off. Plus the lessons of compassion and heightened sensitivity you've learned over the past several years will only work to serve you in reading people's subliminal motives and assess who is a true ally and who to avoid at all costs when doing business.

Between the end of January and June, Jupiter comes back to bless your sector of legacy and other people's money. You'll likely be gifted with a considerable karmic jackpot in the form of a donation, gift, inheritance or loan. Do you still have issues receiving? Now is not the time to look any gift horses in the mouth Virgo. You've more than paid your dues with the amount of free help, guidance and other such service and now it's your time to receive and replenish the well.

Year 2011 Romantic

Your love life is beyond rich and transformational again this year. After enduring a prolonged deprivation spell, where true love seemed like something that only happened to other people, your turn for real love has arrived. Chances are you're already in the midst of a very soulful tryst that began last year. But if you happen to be one of the remaining diehard hermits, get ready to experience one of the most intense romantic encounters of your lifetime. Your birthday season tops the charts in garnishing romance and pleasure, so be sure to take some time off to properly enjoy the amorous gifts of Venus.

You've got two powerful planetary energies working to make your love life the stuff movies and dreams are made of (and for the long haul.) Neptune, the planet of dreams and soulful experience will take up residence in your relationship sector this April to bring you a preview of what's to come for the next fourteen years in radically spiritualizing your relationships. And then Pluto, the god of the underworld continues the excavation begun in 2008 in your romance sector. Over the next 14 years you can count on Pluto to bring unparalleled intensity and reveal hidden aspects of your self through the vehicle of romance. Nothing light or frivolous anymore when it comes to love, Virgo. If it's not a soul connection that will transform every fiber of your being, you'll quickly lose interest.
