Happy new year


I miss my writing time. I’m told that my new laptop charger will be here tomorrow which means I will once again be able to type with all fingers, and not just thumbs. I can’t wait.
Really I cant, which is why today I will once again brave the thumb typing.

I hope all of you had a great night last night. We stayed in with popcorn and hot apple cider. We were going to go to a fall festival with trunker treating, but Little was not interested. She was equeally uninterested in her costume and so we had a cozy night at home.
I did a small ritual around midnight. Just me in the dark. It was quite moving and powerful to me and so I am pleased with it. I of course thanked the Goddess and God for their blessings and abundance through out this last year. I then did a remeberance for those who have past recently and in the last year. Including those lost in natural disasters around the world and in war zones. And that was it. I choose to not do any divination. I simply want to be thankful. Tonight I will take the beans and rice I left on our altar for our ancestors and scatter it.

Which brings us to today. Happy new year! What spiritual goals have you set for the new year? Perhaps a garden, or working a particular skill? My goal is to finish me book this year. I am also working on continuing the permaculture in my back yard. That is it. If I start thinking of to many things I will get distracted and nothing will get done. Always loved the saying “keep it simple sweetie.”
So what are your goals?
Bright blessings, Poppy

One thought on “Happy new year

  1. I am the same way, too many goals makes me distracted. My simple goal is to make sure I say a devotional every day, and then my larger goal is to start a garden after the winter is over.

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
