Good morning. I am having a rough start to the week. My daughter & I woke up late so she missed the bus & I had to bring her to school before I had my coffee. :sleeping: I was 3 hours late taking my medication so I’m kind of blah & my hips & back don’t want to get out of bed yet. I did manage to get my candles on my altar for the day though & I moved my Rose of Jericho into indirect sunlight.

My son has his driver’s test today & I know he is really nervous about going through that, I’m hoping that he gets it today. He’s been overthinking it for a few days now. He knows all the things he needs to, he just thinks it’s harder than it is. I guess we all go through that when it’s the driver’s test because you don’t know until you go through it.

I missed one of my OT appointments today but I just couldn’t get myself to go after oversleeping & not taking my medicine. I don’t do well with a rushed morning. Any other part of the day can be rushed, but my mornings are just about sacred. :rofl:

I’m going to do a meditation before we go to the RMV for the road test. I need to be calm as well or he will know that I am nervous for him & get discombobulated himself. I hope everyone has a great week! I will pop back in a little later & see how everyone is doing.


Merry Meet Monday! @Siofra I hope your day slows down a bit for you, I don’t do well with rushed mornings, either…or afternoons and evenings. :laughing:
Thank you @TheTravelWitch for the shout-out :grin:
Today for me is just an average day, no plans just the usual things chores and cooking. I have to work on my drawing for our Infinite Roots and I downloaded a new book last night on audible I think I’ll give that a try, although I’m not sure if I’m going to like “listening” to a book…:nerd_face:
Blessed Be Witches


@Rowan I’m so sorry! Congratulations on the shout-out for the most love! :partying_face: :heart: & Congratulations to @basil for the most posts! Great job to both of you!

I’m currently getting ready to leave with my son for his driver’s test. Once I got through my 2nd cup of coffee things seemed a little less rushed & I put the Rose of Jericho on my kitchen counter by the window so it gets some indirect sunlight. I know it likes the shade, but it needs some sun to turn green & really thrive.


Sending energy your way! :zap: And good luck to your son – I’m cheering him on! :four_leaf_clover: I 100% understand the overthinking it – the one question I missed on the written portion was because I overthought it and put what I thought the answer SHOULD be, not what the law actually says >.< haha

On the bright side, I missed it for a super stupid reason. The question was about who in the car needed to be wearing their seatbelt when the driver was a certain age (thanks, graduated driver’s license system for making things more complicated!), and I said that EVERYONE should be strapped in (the actual word on the test, which was also misleading!), but the answer was that only the front seat passengers were required (again, the word should, not required was used on the test) to be strapped in :roll_eyes: Such a stupid question to mark people wrong for. lol


I am FIRED FULL of moon energy! Now to try and capitalize on that instead of sliding back into a slump…trying to be a bit more focused lately (trying is the operative word) as I tend to want to learn about everything all at once and then feel I never know anything.
This week I’ve got a lot of yoga any intention is to find other things during the day that are also serving my greater good.
Blessed be my coven


Definitely let me know how things went!!!


My son got his license on his first try! The examiner said he had never had someone so nervous before, but he did great! I’m elated right now. Thank you @wade & @AliceInWonderdab & everyone wishing him well.

Now I need to find something to do for gratitude. I did a meditation in the car while I was waiting for him. I have all of this good energy now after a rocky start this morning.


Yay!!! WOOT WOOT Ty!!! :partying_face:


Turned my day right around @Tamera, I am so happy for him. I am going to do a gratitude spell. Today has been great. I did a meditation in the car while he was taking his test & when I finished, he was finished also!


Yay! Congrats to @Basil and @Rowan! Good job on keeping this place going!

@Siofra I hope your son does well today! I’ll be thinking of him. Hope you feel better too. Once your morning is messed up the whole day just gets awful. Good luck! OOh, I see he passed! That’s great! Congratulations!


Been busy promoting the site, done nothing but chatting, all day, to this 75 year old lovely woman that never heard of Spells8 :blush:


That’s great! We can use some Crone energies in here!


She makes me crack with old English lines.
After all these years living & learning in UK!


Hey I’d lived for about twenty-five years in WV before I learned some of the slang. Still not too sure about some of it. You learn something new each day!


Sure you do, you live and learn.:revolving_hearts:


In Spain there was once this man who run the Royal Academy of Spanish Language.
He said that “TACOS” or swearing is what makes languages to evolve.
In a worl of “Stiff upper Lips”, we are missing the richness of the low words that give form to our vocabulary.
Yet, there’s a time and a place for those.
Play with them, use them as often as you like. Just be aware of who you are talking too.:wink:


Heh. I don’t do good with talking much. Half the time I don’t know what to say. I guess I save my talking for the written word.


Don’t say anything then.
We should all practice listening more often.:smiley:
And not just people!
You are wise & old🙏


Congrats to your son on his successful road test, @Siofra! Super exciting! :partying_face:

You are very welcome, @Rowan- thank YOU for being so awesome! :heart:

Ohhh I know the feeling @wade- some of the questions on the test are awful! Like they are designed to make people fail :woman_shrugging: I think it’s really impressive that there was only one question that gave you a tough time- the written tests are very tricky, so you must be very smart! :clap: :blush:

That is awesome @AliceInWonderdab - enjoy that full moon energy :full_moon_with_face: I hope you have a great time with yoga and your magickal practice this week. Blessed be! :sparkles:

Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! :raised_hands:
