Still down..

Greetings to all the blogoworld. I am still sick but i have my voice back and i do not sound anymore like i recently had a sex change operation. Fever is down, i breathe through my nose(yeeiih)and the antibiotics seem to be working just fine. But i hate missing out on Autumn especially because the weather this week has been great. I feel the forests inviting me to walk them. But i can't! I am stuck here. So i tried crafting again. I cut paper(lots of it) into leaves and i painted some of them in a soft golden brown colour and some of them in a soft red colour. Then i scotchtaped them to a light pink wall in the living room. Originally i wanted to put them on the wall above the fireplace but it is painted in a dark colour and they did not look good.
Until recently i only thought seasonal decorating is something you do before Christmas but i have been following jaz 's blog for a while, and well, she inspired me..a lot. I love the way my house is changing like the season does. Petros says if i keep on doing it, that it will end up looking like a cafe. But what is wrong with that?
Anyway, an Esbat is arriving. I plan on celebrating Her beauty with some cleansing both body and house, some meditating, incense burning, chanting and spending time wih Petros. I will make a pop roast and a pie. And i am going to have a ritual Autumn bath,with a mix of herbs like lemon Verbena, rosemary, lavender. I will prepare some lavender sea salts as well. I can't wait for the Esbat to arrive. It is going to be so much fun.
I was thinking of adding some new practices to my craft. I do not use many shamanic tools so i will give them a shot. I am thinking of drums and humming. Maybe i will record something for meditation. Does any of you have any shamanic potions that i could make?

Hope you're getting well fast. It's miserable to be sick in this wonderful season and with the Esbat coming in a few days. I think shamanic drumming is a good idea. I have a tape of some that's used to get into the right mind state to be able to do remote viewing. It really makes my entire body feel alive.

Sounds like a lovely way to spend the esbat.

I'm glad you're feeling a little better, at least. Soon, you'll be feeling as good as new. :)

I haven't used shamanic tools either...but a drum is definitely on my must-have list.

Happy October!

I really hope you get well soon!
Your crafts, and your house sound lovely! And you made me really crave a big ol' chunk of pumpkin pie!

I have never used shamanic tools, but then again, I dont really use any tools at all. I have listened to drum and flute music to meditate before...it tends to make me want to move around a bit though...but it really puts me in touch with my inner self. In terms of athames or drums or anything like that kind of tool...no I havent used them.
Ill do a bit of digging though to see what I can come up with.
