Talking to family ghosts and insanely long update..

Samhein blessings to all!! This was the first one that my little one really quite understood and celebrated. You see we dont celebrate halloween here in Greece, So the grim parts of it seemed to her confusing. But we did do a spell to connect with my dear dead grandma and offered her a piece of chocolate. She used to love dark chocolate... We also sang halloween songs, danced around and filled our bellies with chocolate. We had a grand time.
The Wheel is turning in a not so subtle way. I have witnessed  some beautiful colors on leaves, the skies turning grey, the air got chilly. And although I love the quickening of this majestic season I already miss the Sun.
Life seems more hectic but it feels as if I got the tempo of it. On weekdays after I leave Nefeli at preschool I go to the gym where I do steps while reading a book. Right now I am at Tolstoy's War and Peace, before that I read the adventures of Tom  Sawyer, before that Madame de Bovarie, before that Mrs Dalloway and so on. You see while I was trying to not aggrevate my back i exchanged running for doing stairs and it took me a while to realize I could read while doing my cardio... As you can probably imagine I am beyond excited. After I finish this wonderful process, i do a little bit of weights. I then return home for some yoga on the roof, some cooking and afterwards I work. Most of the afternoons I take Nefeli to our kickboxing practice and if we dont have practice we enjoy some cuddling time at home.. That little witch keeps amazing me every day..  Have I mentioned she had stiches?  She fell at school and when I finally got there to take her to the hospital I went all Cramer vs Cramer and kept running with her on my arms. The little bug scared me half to death.
 My husband has pretty much the same schedule minus the exercise and on opposite times and we spend very little time everyday together and I miss him a lot.
My back is much better, although my hip still clinks which means the tendon has not healed yet. Hormonally, I feel wonderful, I have a healthy metabolism now, I am almost at my target weight(7 kilos to go,) ,  I sleep well, the cold does not bother me, my hair and eyebrows are not falling.. It is weird but everything I went through feels distant and as if from a past life. I wish this happens some day soon with my back as well. The pain to be a thing of the past, something that used to be a part of my life in the past.. I feel i am getting closer. The supplements I am now taking is serrapeptase, curcumin, fish oil, magnesium, a multivitamin,  collagen and, ac vinegar. They worked... Despite their scary amount it is not a weird obsession of mine. These natural antiinflammatories worked... I circulate their intake. Yes, I have a system.. And it works, it got me off painkillers and muscle relaxants. Well, most of the time. Still, to this day the main goal I am working towards is to be free of back pain. It will be amazing if one day i get a more fun goal like a new diploma or something of that sort..
Be witchy, be lovely and have fun!

I had a wonderful night last night. I drank wine ate little carrot cakes and danced around my circle and then I went out into the cold rain and let it wash me. Then I went and took a nice hot shower washed my hair and sat on the sofa under my nice warm fake fur blanket and watched the sun come up. It was a wonderful Samhain night.
I'm glad you are working out. I'm stuck with going to the pool and walking. No running, jumping or hopping for me. My fake knees can't take the pressure of the weight. I found out fake knees are great but you have to stop doing all the fun stuff. I'm not taking my pain meds like I was before. I should because of the constant pain but I sometimes forget when I last took a pill. I worry about overdosing a lot. So I have to write down when I last took anything to keep on top of it. I hate that fact that my pain meds make my mind so fuzzy.

So good to hear from you! Glad you are doing better. Have you tried reiki sessions at all? My father had chronic pain all the time due to arthritis all overt his body. I performed reiki on him once every two weeks so that he need not take as many pain pills to manage his pain. After a time on those kinds of meds his kidneys were so badly affected that he could no longer take them anymore. He said that reiki helped him a lot.

Anyway, I wish you and yours a very Blessed Samhain!

It's really good to read you, to learn that you and your wee angel share such delightful things, that she's growing up and your life is getting better (especially your back).

Many hugs.
