Monday Medley

So, another snowfall......over a foot. Always beautiful, but at this time of year, with Spring stretching herself towards us, not quite as exhilarating. Add to this the fact that my delightful husband is in Hawaii on business. Yes, Hawaii. Perhaps I shall say no further words on that subject.

Son nicarus and I have been working around the house this past week. Remember the Dreaded Craft Corner I blogged about back in, (yikes) November? I shall be posting photos soon of the lovely makeover of my creative space!

We went to Mystic Side, the metaphysical shop I love, over the weekend. Besides restocking my tiny candles, I found a book by my most favorite Wiccan author, Scott Cunningham. Divination for Beginners, Reading the Past, Present and Future. ( It was originally called The Art of Divination when it was first published in 1993). It always thrills me to find a Cunningham book and reading it last night was very inspiring and exciting. His writing style is simple and beautiful, explaining in a way that does not confuse. If you have not read any of Scott Cunningham's books, I strongly encourage you to do so.

The sun is now shining, the wild birds are bickering over the feeders, the dogs are anxious to get out into the snow and I am thinking about my to-do lists. And Ostara is getting closer. The sabbat that celebrates the Spring Equinox. I get a little giddy when I think about Spring!

Wishing everyone a great week.

Cunningham is my favourite author as well! I have close to have his works collected thus far, and want to gather them all. I am so sick of seeing snow and so anxious for Spring myself lol

I do hope we won´t get that much snow when it comes here, because I´m certain it will come.

There´s nothing better than to open up a new book for the first time, especially if it is from one of the favorite authors :-)

Have a great day!

Hawaii. Ok, that is so not fair! I cannot wait to see your craft corner project - I have been decluttering like made here to prepare for the house sale and I know what an incredible accomplishment it is - so satisfying! I love Scott Cunningham too - his book Encyclopedia of magical herbs is a MUST. I bought it 3 times. Or maybe 4. Long story for another day!
