Good morning. I woke up after sleeping 4 hours and was ready to start the day. I chose just a regular black tea to have this morning. I did choose a mug that used to be my mom’s. She had collected this pattern of dishes since she was around 16 and when she passed, I got the collection. I was thinking of her this morning and with Samhain coming up fast, I thought it would be a nice way to honor her this morning.
I’m still healing and doing well with that, I just go a little stir crazy from time to time because I pretty much have to stay in one spot and if I do anything other than go to the bathroom or the kitchen, I need someone around to make sure I stay upright. I can’t drive so I am dependent on other people to pick things up or get outside things done for me and I’m not used to that, I’m pretty independent.
I am going to find an album I have of my grandmother’s family. They are all black and white photos of ancestors. I am going to put it on my altar with some of my grandmother’s jewelry. I think with the veil thinning it’s good to let her know that I love and miss her terribly.
I will be in and out of the forum again, it keeps me occupied throughout the day. I will be in my book of mirrors today too. I am practicing writing in there at least once a day. I did do a meditation the the day before yesterday from Spells8 and for my second cup of tea, I think I am going to do the Black Tea Meditation. I haven’t gotten to try that one yet and I just put SoundCloud on my phone so I can wear my headphones while listening.
I hope everyone has a great day and a wonderful Samhain/Halloween and everyone stays safe.
@TheTravelWitch and @Francisco, I don’t know if it’s something we could do, but what about a tea time on Samhain just to check in with everyone and see how they are doing with the holiday or for November 1? I know it’s short notice, but it just popped into my head as I made my first cup of tea this morning. I don’t know how much interest there would be from everyone else either. It was a thought though.
Have a great day/evening and everyone stay safe!
