First of all, congratulations to @Siofra :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::tada:
Secondly, as for any spell work that I’ll be doing has to deal with healing my uncle and I. I won’t go into details about me because I’m scared and I don’t have a proper diagnosis yet. I’m going to my doctor this week.
My uncle is getting worse by the day. He’s been in the hospital for a while. He has kidney failure and congenitive heart disease along with brain cancer. He started chemo yesterday and, well I’m not sure how that’s going. He is on the Energy Exchange.

I hope everyone has a beautiful week! Don’t let any negativity lower your vibration!!! You’re a precious soul on this planet and you’re worth so much more! :sparkles:

Congratulations to @christina4 and @Siofra! I don’t know where we’d be without you two lovely ladies in the forum!

@christina4 I’m lighting a special candle, just for you my love. I hope your doctor is able to help you.

As for me, I went to MedExpress this Friday for my leg. Again. I was hoping that would take less time than an ER but not with Covid around. At least I was able to wait in my car rather than in a crowded waiting room. My leg’s infection kicked off again and I’m on another round of antibiotics and should hear something about the culture they did soonish. He also put me on a special wound wash to clean the area of bacteria since it’s getting infected while being wrapped. So I’m hoping that this time they’ve got it licked.

I’m not looking forward to what my regular doctor has to say on Friday though. I feel like I’m cheating on her, going to the ER and stuff, but if she doesn’t have room for me and I need the doctor where else am I supposed to go?

This week I want to do something to banish illness but I don’t know what yet. We’ll see what I come up with. I’ll probably do it on Saturday so I have time to figure something out.

Anyhow, enough about me. How are y’alls week going? Have any plans?

Round of applause to @christina4 and @Siofra ! :clap:

In my thoughts and prayers @christina4 :pray::revolving_hearts:

I have nothing planned, just me doing me one day at a time :smirk:

Oh, I am counting down to my vacation in October. Heading to Gatlinburg instead of New Jersey :grin:

There’s a beautiful resort called Brookside, where every room is river view, that’s where I’m staying again. We would sit out on the patio and have drinks, listening to the the river, sleep with the window open. It’s a little “touristy” but I like to go wandering the trails, drive Cades Cove loop, find waterfalls. Ripley’s has a nice aquarium, there’s Dollywood too in the next town over, Pigeon Forge. I go in October because of the changing of the leaves :fallen_leaf::maple_leaf:
Oh…and there’s moonshine :joy:
But mainly I go because it’s beautiful, peaceful and helps me “reset”

It sounds lovely, @Peaches and at that time of year, the leaves should be turning. I bet it’s gorgeous!

It’s Bank Holiday Monday here in England and hubby and I are spending some quality time together. And at the weekend it’s our wedding anniversary and we’re going out for dinner and to see a comedy show in London.

But I’m most excited that we’ve booked a weekend away in Ireland for my birthday at the start of October!

Things have gotten off to a rough start for me this week. I had a terrible headache yesterday and today my throat is a little dry and scratchy, but that is probably because of the change in temperature.
But I’m looking forward to the cooler temperatures. :relaxed:
Been everywhere trying to get a pumpkin spice latte, but they’re sold out everywhere. :sob: And they say that nobody likes pumpkin spice. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Is it weird that I’ve never had a pumpkin spiced latte?
