Autumn blessings

Blessed Mabon everybody.  Today I have been really busy so I didn't have a chance to celebrate like usual,  but I did do something major!  Look! I am so happy!


Thank you Stacy and Magaly!

The previous post was an experiment of sorts.  You know I have been having some browser issues.  It turns out I can read your posts with dolphin, but I can only upload pictures with chrome.  But, hey now I can do both and show you the wonderful surprise I received recently.

A couple of weeks ago I received a notification for a package waiting for me at the postal office.  But, I was not expecting anything and I have been really busy, so it took me a while to get to it. It turns out it was from  Stacy!
The moment I went into the car I tore the package in pieces. First thing I saw was this little envelope with a pretty card that she had put for me little heart stickers on it. The letter brought tears in my eyes and the widest of smiles. Inside the package I also found those beautiful creations of hers.
This is the baby crow now sitting on the windowsill of my daughter's room. Isn't it the cutest?  And underneath it right next to my grandmother and Magaly's black out poems is the "nature speaks, listen little painting. Those are with me every day in my office while I work reminding me of the powerful connections that bind us and acts of pure and unconditional kindness. And last but not least on top of Melina Nefeli's library right next to her very first drawing is the" relax" another one of Stacy's baby crows. The black out poems,  the "relax" baby crow, and the "live" crow  that sits on top of my fireplace were sent to me this Winter during a very difficult time for me, in a very similar way by sweet Magaly. Her package also brought tears in my eyes. The care she has put in it.  Everything was wrapped with paper and bound with a beautiful purple cord. Her words spoke right into my heart. And of course I also opened the package as soon as I was in the car. I never said I was a patient woman people, come on!  It took me a while to make this post because of technical issues and chronic procrastination , but I have such great gratitude towards these very special women,  bloggers, friends.  You gave me strength, love and great joy. Thank you!


Reluctantly excited

So, my mom came by the other day with a bunch of plastic flowers and it felt like fate. I usually do not decorate for Fall until the Equinox trying to hold on to as much Summer as I possibly can. But this year the Sun went to hiding the moment September came.  The air is crispier, the leaves are turning and no amount of denial from my part could bring Summer back. Of course there is so much beauty all around.  The glow of the Sun paints the whole world in a golden color.  The weather is lovely for leisure walks in the park, although I haven't had the chance yet. The Wheel is turning and I shall welcome the change. So, my front door may be a bit extreme, but the princess witch loved it!  Are you excited about Autumn?


Summer in a few words

Greetings blogfriends!!  I have been gone for quite some time.  It's mainly because I had some browser problems.  It has been hard to find a browser that allowed me to blog. Now I am using dolphin and I hope this never becomes an issue again because I am used to using my phone to read your blogs since at home we only have a large monitor that works as a TV and it is not convenient for blogging.
So, to sum the whole summer up  it was quite productive. We went on a rather short vacation in Monemvasia where we spent four days living in an actual castle. Me and Nefeli called each other princess and Petros our knight.
I took up running and I can officially call myself a decent runner since I worked my way up to 40-50 kilometers per week and I also got a lot stronger. My back acts up from time to time but nothing major anymore.  And my hormones are somewhat balanced.  I have not mastered the art of sleeping yet but I have improved a lot. I also started writing a book more on that on a following post. I read a lot,  listened to a lot of music and worked long hours. I also spent a lot of time with my family.  At the Summer Solstice we celebrated Melina Nefeli's third birthday.  She is a magic cusp baby.
As for my spiritual practice I had a lot of fun sharing my magical work with my little girl.  She is unbelievable gifted with great instincts. She is starting to understand the concept of card readings..  We made wreaths,  planted herbs, gathered them, burned them, cooked breads, gave them as offerings. Recently I started to talk to her about the different religious practices around the world.
So, what have you been up to?
