Merry Meet Monday - Forum News! December 28th 🎆

I see, @Amethyst- I hope they can fix everything up nice for you! I imagine it will be good to have those things taken care of. But yes, tough to be away for a day. Hopefully you have somewhere nice or interesting to spend the time? And hopefully someplace warm! :two_hearts:

I saw your Elderberry syrup, @Siofra! It looks amazing- always a healthy and delicious treat :yum::purple_heart: I’m glad to hear the week is off to a good start and you are feeling good!

I think I can speak for the forums and say we are proud to have you here too- you are truly a blessing, @praecog29! :heart: Enjoy the beautiful Full Moon :full_moon: and the firework show- it sounds exciting! :fireworks:

Thanks to @Magdelina for the elderberry tip- and look at that stunning spread! Such a gorgeous setup- I hope you had a lovely ritual and were able to charge your oils :two_hearts:

Adding to CrazyT’s great pointer, for @brad1 I also suggest Mountain Rose Herbs or checking with your local apothecary/tea shop as they may have elderberries in stock or perhaps can order some for you! :+1:


Glad to hear that everyone is doing well! :blush: Things are busy with both work and New Year’s prep at my place- keeping me on my toes! I’ve got my cinnamon ready for the NYE ritual tomorrow and I’m considering a bath ritual as well to cleanse for the new year. I just need to find the time! :bathtub::laughing:

Is everyone ready to welcome in 2021? :partying_face:

I’m gonna either sit in the lobby or the community room. That is unless I have a doctor’s appointment. So I won’t be too far if they finish up early.

Are you doing something special for New Year’s? I probably will go to bed at my regular time. I’m just not up to staying up late anymore. Good luck getting everything you need to be done! I’m so ready for 2021 it’s not even funny!

I think I am going to do a ritual shower for cleansing on NYE and the intention releasing spell from @SilverBear. I have written down my intentions and I’m hoping they work out. I’m going to buy some more cinnamon sticks and some oranges and lemons for another simmer pot tomorrow when I can get to the store. Like @TheTravelWitch I just need to find the time, so hopefully, I wake up early to get these things done.

Nope, but then I never am ready. I have to work tomorrow, but…I got my eggnog ready, I am still trying to look for a ritual for tomorrow that I will be doing at midnight with my sister in law who is ringing in with me from Wisconsin. Worked on more chakra oils and intention jars. These are coming together nicely and I hope to be done soon so I can get them listed. I already sold one of the yellow (solar plexus) oils. I have a good feeling that 2021 is going to be my year. :grin: and I am ready for it.

Well it’s time for my nightly meditation. Good night and Blessed Be!!! :sparkling_heart:

A good plan- I’ve got my fingers crossed they work quick and you can kick back and relax in your home sooner than expected :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’m with you on the plan for going to bed early- I think the last 2 years I’ve fallen asleep before midnight and I intend to stick with that new tradition :laughing::+1:

Thanks for the good wishes, Kasie! I think I’m finally all set for the new year: I finished my house cleansing, had a nice bath cleansing ritual, set my goals, and did the NYE cinnamon ritual for luck this morning. I am also very ready for 2021- bye bye 2020! :wave:

It’s my partner’s bday today, so we’ll be having a very small celebration with just the two of us and some chooclate cake. That’s the limit of the festivities here- my partying days seem to be long behind me now :joy:

Cheers to that, Krissie- it’s been a hectic time! You have some wonderful plans for ritual and spellwork, enjoy and welcome in the new year with many blessings :blush::two_hearts:

A wonderful feeling! I think you are more ready for the new year than you know, CrazyT- I hope it is a year overflowing with joy and happiness for you! :hearts: Have fun with your sister-in-law, were you able to find a good midnight ritual?

Sounds like you’ve been busy this morning! Good for you! I’m going to be doing the NYE ritual tonight I think. I’ve got some chores around the house I need to do first.

Oh, and Happy Birthday to your partner! A little birdie told me it’s @Limeberry’s cake day as well!

I’m excited to get started on them today & finish them up tomorrow. It will be a nice start to the New Year. I think in a little bit I will set up my ritual shower things and do that today.

I am so tired. :sleeping: :upside_down_face: :rofl: I woke up yesterday at 7:30 to take my oldest to the doctor for his final round of school required vaccines. Now he can graduate in May.

Last night I went to a friend’s house to celebrate New Year’s early. :tada: :fireworks: (There were 6 of us in a large room to keep us safe.) We listened to the Cotton Bowl while laughing and playing games. Somehow a few hour party turned into an all night celebration.

I did modified tarot spreads for everyone and apparently they were all spot on. (Well, one was for 2021 as a whole so we will see if that ends up being correct. I did two spreads for that guy and the second spread ended up using all but one of the same cards as the first spread. The spreads were a modified Gaia tree and @Limeberry’s Christmas :christmas_tree: Tree spread - also modified. The fact these two spreads used mostly the same cards and they said the same thing is possible confirmation for him.)

At 6 am we watched New Zealand’s :new_zealand: fireworks. Later, we watched Sydney’s :australia: fireworks. Both were live on YouTube. I got home around 9, I believe, and I have been up talking to the kids and watching the other celebrations as they happen. I won’t have a chance to get to sleep until 12:30 am on the 1st.

It’s been a fun couple of days!

Thank you, @Amethyst! :heart: I hope you had a wonderful NYE ritual and that all of your chores were easy-peasy :grin: Happy New Year! :fireworks:

That sounds wonderful, @Siofra- hope you had a lovely ritual and are starting the new year feeling happy and refreshed! :two_hearts:

It sounds like a blast, @Praecog29! I’m glad you had a fun time and were able to welcome in the new year among friends and loved ones :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: And you caught two sets of fireworks as well- very exciting! I bet you are completely exhausted- hopefully you can catch some sleep soon :sleeping:

Welcome to 2021, everyone! :star2:

So far my new year has been wonderful and I felt so refreshed yesterday when I finished. I think once a week I will do a shower ritual. I have a few in my BOS. I do have to get more rose for my herb jars, I used the last of what I had in that shower. Before that I used it in a simmer pot. I like to do the simmer pots on the weekends.

I’m getting things taken care of and I have a plan that is already in motion. This coming week I have appointments every day. I’m looking forward to getting them done. I also have to start going to the dentist more often for cleanings, but they are going to do deep cleans. With my hEDS one of the issues with it is tooth breakage so about once a month lately I’ll be brushing my teeth and a piece of a tooth falls out. I’m hoping they can either fix them or tell me how to take care of them so to slow that down.

Eek, that’s not good. I hope the dentist can help you, even if it’s just telling you that you need implants. Hopefully you’ll get to all your doctor appointments okay and you’ll feel accomplished once your done. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts! :hugs:

thank you! I always feel accomplished when I get things from my mental or physical list of things done. Today we are taking down decorations in the house & I have already gotten dressed & cleaned my room. So I’m taking it one moment at a time today.

You’ve gotten more done than I did today! You’re doing great!

We never got to taking down decorations yesterday, so that is being done today. But I’ve gotten a lot of little things done too that had to do with paperwork kinds of things.

Hope your undecorating went well. I did fun stuff like cleaning the bathroom today. We’re going to be out of water for eight hours a day starting tomorrow. That’s going to be fun.
