Thank y’all so much! I’m glad y’all don’t mind my babbling! And thanks for the special title! It means a lot to me! And congratulations to @praecog29 for giving the most love! :purple_heart:

Happy Monday to everyone! I hope y’all had a good weekend. I got some writing done and other little things so I’m calling it a good weekend! I hope to have a good week this week. They should be finishing sheetrocking in my apartment where they put in new plumbing and I’m hoping to get my stuff back where it belongs. I had to clear the countertops and stuff and when they sand their repairs there is going to be dust and gunk everywhere. Not looking forward to that. But once it’s done, it’ll be done and hopefully won’t have to happen again for a while.

Other than that, I haven’t got much going on this week. No doctor appointments, Sally is getting my groceries for me. It’s gonna be a good week! Hope y’all have one too! :hugs:

Congratulations to @Amethyst & to @praecog29! Great job! I’m so happy for you both.

I had a very up and down week last week, so I’m hoping for better after the weekend. I’m going to get on the weekly challenge, I’m hoping today. I just have to watch my daughter. She has a head cold & a little cough. Whatever is going through my house isn’t bad, but I still don’t want it. My sons have it too. I’m hoping it stays with the kids.

I have only been having issues with my back lately & I know our weather has something to do with the severity. It’s really bad in the morning & then late afternoon.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Thank you, @Amethyst and @Siofra. :hugs: You guys are the real hearts of the forum and I am so thankful for you.

I am happy the sheetrock is going up finally, Kasie. The cat will be happy, too, right?

I am so sorry the kids have colds, Krissie. Mine always seem to get them first and give them to me. :sweat_smile: I hope you don’t get it.

A special shoutout to @Aedreysa for starting We need a Coven Name!. Thank you!

Will some of the more talented :star_struck: members of the coven share fairy tales on Friday?

I have been keeping “Energy Exchange Circle - February 13th” up to date and the Energy Exchange Circle 2021 Wiki. (Sorry for the long names. :joy:) Thankful :pray:t3: for Brianna reminding us about them. I really encourage everyone to check them out from time to time, even if they don’t have something for themselves.

I hope everyone has a better week than the last. Blessings to all of you.

Thank you @praecog29 & you do a wonderful job with the Energy Exchange Circle Thank you so much for that, I know I am on there a lot. I appreciate all the love though. :hugs:

I’m hoping for a week of getting something done. The weather last week made it hard for me to do some of the things that I normally do. Plus it was a vacation week, so I had my Peanut home too. :sun_with_face:

Things seem to be moving in a more positive direction for me this week. Although my anxiety is still reeling from the weekend. I have been sleeping better the last couple of nights though. :smiley:

I also appreciate the readings from @MeganB in the Freebie Friday topics. It really helped me get through Saturday because I knew it was time & I was ready to handle it. I just wish someone told my panic that we were ready. :rofl:

In times of course where we can’t decide if AI is for better or worse, groups and websites like this pardon my datum practice. :flushed::sweat_smile::woman_mage::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’ll have to see what I can find for Fairytale Friday :rabbit: Maybe I’ll just share some mythology and stories instead, because I’m finding some fascinating info about Brighid that isn’t commonly known!

4 Likes

Oh, I love Brigid! If you find anything that you can share that would be lovely. I have a lot about her in my BOS. I’m always looking for more information on her. I would greatly appreciate it @MeganB!

Congrats on your writing and the end of the work on your apartment, @Amethyst- it will be so nice to be finished with it! I hope you enjoy a very relaxing week (and no appointments- yay!) and have some good weather too. Blessings to you! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I hope this week is better for you, @Siofra- may your daughter and sons have speedy recoveries, it’s no fun to be sick! May the weather improve there soon. Hopefully warmer days will be easier on your back. Be well, Krissie! :heart:


You are a hero for running the Energy Exchange Circle, @praecog29- your hard work is very much appreciated! :pray: And ohhh such a fun idea, I would also love to see any fairy tales anyone has to share! Always love a good story :european_castle: :blush:


That would be a delight, @MeganB! You have so much wisdom and I always love reading your posts- I hope you’re able to discover something new about the lovely Brighid! :grin::two_hearts:


I hope everyone’s week is off to a wonderful start! Blessed be to all :sparkles:

@TheTravelWitch thank you so much. I’m doing okay & the kids seem to be doing better already! The regular medicine from the pharmacy seems to be doing the trick so far. They don’t sound all stuffy anymore either.

The weather right now is below freezing and the top of the porch has a sheet of ice on it that you don’t notice until your feet hit it. So I’ll be staying in as much as possible.

I have to do the snow moon spell!!!

5 Likes

Happy to hear that the medicine helped, @Siofra! Wishing all of your kids a speedy recovery back to full health :pray: Stay healthy and safe! :two_hearts:

Awesome- enjoy the spell and have a very blessed Full Moon, @Christina4! :full_moon: :sparkles:

Yes it did! My daughter went back to school yesterday, but today is her weekly remote day. My kids are convinced that I have it because I sneezed yesterday. I think they are hoping I have it from the sounds of it.

Well, I’ve got my fingers crossed that you avoid the icky sickness- stay healthy and well, Krissie! :blush:

Thank you, it seems to have missed me. The kids are all okay & so am I! No one is stuffy or sneezing anymore, so that’s good for us! I hope every one else stays healthy also!

Glad to hear that everyone is doing well! Thanks- wishing the same to you! :blush::pray:
