Thunderation! Quite a stormy day here yesterday. Three or four storms moved through, with pouring rain, booming thunder. It is nice to get a break from watering the garden and container plantings, but it did keep me inside, and as always, scares the heck out of my sheltie dog, Gwennie. Poor little thing either hides in the downstairs bathroom or sticks to me like glue.
Speaking of the garden, I am in process of drying rosemary for both magickal and culinary purposes. Soon I will be drying parsley, sage, thyme, chamomile and a couple of other herbs. I have all those wonderful little jars to fill and it truly is a satisfying process. Growing from seed, tending, harvesting and drying. This is the first year I have added growing herbs to my magickal path. Love it! Definitely planting more next year.
Here's a little secret: I am writing a story to post on the blog. I used to write short stories way back when, and recently started up again. We will see how it turns out; I will let you know.
Audio Book Progress: A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin. I have not listened to the book since about 4 days before Raethan's wedding. At that time, I had made it to disc 11, with 27 discs to go. Regretfully I don't think I am going to finish the cds. I can not take the reader I am sorry I just can not do it no offense to the man really but OMG his voice drives me insane I hate the way he makes the female characters all sound like ancient women even the young girls and some of the male characters sound like a bad rendition of Blackbeard the pirate and really I am longing to actually read the book so I am just going to go buy the book even though we paid for the audio version perhaps I can sell that on ebay or amazon. WHEW! Glad I got that out. Sorry, Kallan, we will have to wait a bit longer for our Dragon discussion.
Well, then, sending out Monday greetings and wishing everyone a great, good week.
