Things seem to be moving really fast in my life. I haven't done much blogging because every spare moment I have goes to sewing.
Since I was caught short, I donated my auction piece and promptly started a replacement:
I started another page for my daily practice. I started writing around Lammas so I was writing about the holiday and gradually I realized I was only writing about holidays. I didn't say anything about day to day spell work. I realized I needed to start over. Possibly I need to create a 3rd page.
The daily work involves battling the school. I'm using my broom, my circle charm, and the geode. The first day of school went well for one child. The second day was a disaster. Last year the special education teacher told me we would meet a month into the school year to see how my son is doing in the regular classroom. I took this to mean AFTER the first month she would schedule a meeting. Instead, she scheduled the meeting for August 31. When she gave my son the letter she told him that he maybe back in her class. He came home and cried for an hour because he thought he had to go back to special ed. This is why I hate the school.
My daily practice also involves sewing. When working on "Higher Than the Pine " I thought about the sky. I worked stitches of blue thinking about air, how we all need space, we need to breathe, to think. I made white stitches and thought of clouds which led to cloud 9. I stitch. I focus. I imagine situations playing out in my favor. That's how Kitchen Witchery works- you turn the mundane into magick. While I start projects intending them to be a particular spell, other things creep in. I don't see a problem with it. I believe we lend bits of ourselves to everything we do, everywhere we go. We cannot turn off our thoughts. We can only change our perspective. Viewing something only in a negative light leads to being stuck. Finding the good helps us see how to move forward.
