Note from Bry:
Hi everyone! This MMM has been scheduled and launched thanks to help from the wonderful @MeganB (thanks again, Megan! :heart:). I am currently out at sea and, if we’re on course, halfway across the Atlantic! :ocean:

Keeping you all in my thoughts. Hope you all have a blessed week! :sparkles:

Thank you for the shout-out, Bry! I hope you have smooth sailing! We are missing you!

As for me, I have my doctor’s appointment late today so I can get caught up on posts before I got today. It’s mainly a check-up on my leg and some strategizing on wraps that I need for my legs so I’m hoping it won’t be too long.

I plan to do a spell with a bloodstone and some herbs for good blood circulation. Not sure what else yet. We’ll see, but I figure this is a good moon phase for it.

That’s all I’m planning for this week, other than maybe sending Sally to Dollar Tree for some Halloween goodies. LOL! Hope you all are having a good week!

Merry Meet Monday Witches!
@TheTravelWitch_Bry How exciting!!! Im just off the Atlantic, im waving at you!!! Lol.
Congrats @Amethyst for sharing the love this week, and great positivity!

Not much to report here on my end this week. Just piddling around, handling the chores of the house and waiting for October!

Blessed Be to each of you and Abundance Abound!

Congrats @Amethyst for all the love, positivity and posts this week!!!

I am gearing up for another Chemo on Wednesday, otherwise trying to enjoy the last couple of days of feeling good prior to it - I felt like crap for 2 weeks straight after my last chemo treatment so I’ve really enjoyed these last couple of days. Your world gets very small when all you do is rest, sleep, eat, repeat. And, maybe play with the dogs :dog: and :cat: some.

Have a fabulous week everyone!!! :green_heart:

I know it’s Tuesday, yesterday was well, yesterday :laughing:

Congratulations x2 @Amethyst! Great job, always a pleasure to have you in the coven & all that you do! :revolving_hearts:

@jan_TheGreenWitch I hope this treatment isn’t as rough afterward & the days are easier & have more good than not. As always we are here if you need us! :revolving_hearts:

I’m still working on pouches for each of my decks & now it’s a thing that my daughter helps me pick out & add charms. She asks, what should I know about the deck related to the charms? Of course, then they are all spread out across my bed & she’s actually 1/4 helping me & 3/4 looking for my tiny keys :laughing: but she is really good about showing me ones that catch her eye or that she thinks would go with the decks & their pouches.

I have 1 appointment this week & it’s the countdown to the start of school for my daughter & the last big weekend of the Cape Summer… Labor Day. After that, we should be somewhat back to normal travel times & more direct ways to get around. Having a State Route go through the town as the main road to get from one end to the other & continue through the entire Cape… way back when this was not what they imagined :laughing: I do like that the actual older version of routes here have been renamed like Route 3 & there’s Route 3A… usually the Route with the letter (which is 99.9% of the time “A”) is the original forged route before the masses. At least GPS systems stay away from more intricate backroads & neighborhoods that residents know how to cut through :rofl: After Columbus Day, everyone has pretty much headed home for the season & back to Florida for 6 months of the Fall :fallen_leaf: & winter :snowflake: plus the beginning of Spring :cherry_blossom:. We call them Snow Birds :bird:

The following is a satirical statement because New England climates are way different than the Florida climates, no ill intent at all… I love to go to Florida when I am able to

  • (I’m not kidding, the number of half-year residents from Florida… my father said once they find out you’re from Massachusetts or Cape Cod they just hand out licenses, license plates, & depending on your age a handicap placard along with a house including a pool & central air. When it was my Mom & Dad that moved to FL… they both had a handicap placard because she was terminally ill. Then they have renewed it for my father ever since & his current wife also has one that gets renewed. Kind of afraid to go to FL permanently, I may fall apart :laughing:)

I hope everyone has a great week & it’s full of great things for everyone! :revolving_hearts:

@jan_TheGreenWitch

I’m sorry you have to go through this, I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like. I would like to ask your permission to send you healing. I’m asking because you are an empath and may know when I’m doing healing on you. Of course, it’s always your choice.

With lots of love :heart: always :people_hugging:

@marsha I would be honored and so grateful for the energy healing - thank you so much for your consideration. :white_heart:

Thank you! Tonight I will send “Divine (Infinite) Light” then tomorrow night I will do a Pain Drain. It’s really important energetically for you to release as much of the toxic energy as possible. I will send more information tomorrow.

I hope everyone is doing well! Last Friday I woke up sick and as of today I am finally starting to feel somewhat better. Been dealing with congestion, coughing, and using lots and lots of tissues… Ugh lol. Thankfully it’s NOT COVID.
