Thursday on Friday, ok Friday too.

As far as linguistics go, the Enghlish names for these days are both brought to us via the Norse Gods. Thursday meaning Thor’s Day, and Friday coming from Freyja. Actually the names rattled around Europe a bit and there are different versions in many of the countries there. Going back to the way I think of days :we get Jupiter and Venus. Of course not matter which way you choose to call it we are talking about the God of the Sky, and the Goddess of Love and beauty.

That said my themes for this blog (at least for now) will be Practical Magic Thursday and Love Friday.

I find most all magic that I do practical and I tend to do more “practical” cottage witch, kitchen witchery types of magic. I decided to dedicate a day to write about magic for several reasons. One is that I think people have the wrong idea about what it is. Two is that EVERYONE can do it. Three is that is seems to be something that fascinates people. Lastly Four is because I have an issue with it. That being you don’t need to be a witch to do magic and being a witch doesn’t make your magic better. Also doing a love spell or what have you may be done in the context of the religion but it doesn’t take place of the worship of the Goddess and God. So because I have all these hang ups about it I thought I should write about it.

Fridays will be days for me to ramble on about love. Weather keeping the home fires burning, looking for new love or the love of a good friend or heck a good meal. You know I love food so I am guessing that food will be a big part of Fridays.

Now that I have themes my ideas are flowing in a more manageable way and I can’t wait to see what this blog has in store for all of us. I of course will still be posting pictures from my  personal book of shadows. Happy Friday. Let the people you love know you love them today.

“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.
