A quiet New Year's day

Happy new year dear blogfriends! How did you celebrate?  Well, we were a bit under the weather,  so it was quite intimate.
This morning, I began my New year's preparations by  throwing out all garbage.  I then did a water and salt cleansing potion.  I burned rosemary with mandrake.  I did a Goddess blessing and an elemental blessing and then I drew my tarot cards for each month of 2017. It looks like it is going to be a great year for me!
Then we cut our vasilopita which is a traditional Greek cake  that has a coin in it.  Whoever gets it is supposed to have good luck through the year that comes. Ours was a bit more magical.  It was an apple abundance cake from which we will make an offering to the Goddess and fairies. And to top it all off it was sugarless, very low in carbs and delicious. The only downside was we forgot to take a picture.  It's a shame because me and the little witchling had decorated it,  in a short of "frozen"theme. But we were hungry, and sleepy and sick.  It completely slipped our minds. Well, the coin was in my mom's piece which was great because she got really excited when we called to tell her.
Right now the witchling and her dad are playing with her cars in her motorway, right next to me.  I am sipping nutmeg coffee with milk foam and cinnamon which is my drink of choice with a heating pad on my back, on my rocking chair by the fireplace.  Life is wonderful!   It would be a little more wonderful if we all didn't have the flu and I didn't have menstrual cramps but I am not one to split hairs. Just kidding!  This was one of my all time favorite New Year celebrations.
May 2017 bring peace, love, health and abundance to all!!

Happy New Year! I'm sorry you're not feeling well and hope it passes quickly. I love the idea of the cake with the coin in it. Never heard of that one before but I think it's a great concept. I do hope that our 2017 is filled with good health, lots of happiness and peace from within! So glad I found you again. Yay!

We stayed home, too. The Little Princess was sick and I need to stay away from crowds (too many germs and I'm still on steroids, which make my immune system rather crappy). But we had fun with LEGOs, coloring books and watching Space Balls.

By the way, if you have the recipe for the low carb cake, I would love to have it! You can email it to me: magalyguerrero At live DOT com.

Hope 2017 brings you lots and lots of magic!
