Filling you in and Ostara

Greetings to all the blogland!
I am sorry i have been away for so long. For some reason i was n't in a very creative mood for a while, but i have returned. My life had way too many ups and downs and i was very stressed. But i have to admit that it feels good to have my keyboard on my lap and filling you in. You know the feeling, like catching up with a friend although in this case with several friends. Weirdly enough my life was more balanced than ever(hitting the gym, meeting with friends, seeing a therapist, working and taking care of business stuff while organising my wedding). The only downside is that my stress levels are abnormally high, especially when it has to do with music(a gig and some very important exams are coming up). Deep breaths, long baths and showers and cooking hearty comfort foods are usual occurrences lately.
I am also picking flowers and drying them and i bought a bunch of house plants to celebrate Ostara and bring some nature in my home. The spring equinox never felt so strong and powerful as it does now while it is approaching. The only plan i have set up in my mind is to make a wreath to hang on my front door. Many witches work with fairy magick this time of the year. I usually prefer Lughnasad for it, but it is a common practice along with beauty, luck and love spells.
Do you have any special plans for Ostara?

Well, I normally like to go for a swim on Ostara and make love outdoors. The weather is very cooperative for outdoor lovemaking--it's in the 80s already, but the pool is still 60 degrees, so this year I might just do a polar bear dip.

hey! missed ya! But at the same time I know how ya feel...everything crashes down on you at once and then all of a sudden, it lifts again...

I personally dont have any big plans for Ostara.... I just want to fill my house with dozens of plants and set up a big colorful fish tank! I think that new life in the house is just what I need!


So gym buddie! I kinda fell a bit off the wagon in the last few days...but im going to a cycling class tonight and that should get the ball rolling again! :D
...lol...i just thought i should be honest ;P Hope all is well with you!

As always it is nice to hear from you... we all have our times when we just dont want to blog.. I have a feeling as the weather warms, my urge may become too strong for me to resist. Blessings

ok..update. you know how you ate the granola and love the maple syrup? that is how i am with these candies in the box which are covered in white powdered sugar. OMG..they are little pieces of heaven. and i don't even eat candy all that much. i pop one in my mouth every time i walk into the kitchen! i am in love with the candy and in hate with my lack of self control! thank you once again!!!

I gues everybody has this feeling once in a while, of not feeling like blogging or having the nergy to. It's totally okay.

I wish you a wonderful Ostara, making a wreath out of flowers is terrific! May this season be full of light for you!

Kisses from Nydia.

Happy Ostara !! We had a nice family evening with good food and a nice movie. Nanny McPhee was on and I love that movie. Very magical too, so just on the right day ; )

I feel the Spring Equinox very strongly this year as well! I spent the day with my wonderful boyfriend, and did some gardening. Many Ostara blessings to you!

Happy spring! Hope you had a beautiful Ostara.
