Congratulations on 2 weeks @triplemoonlove9091 & thank you so much & congratulations to @CelestiaMoon! Great job to both of you!

I feel like it is going to be a good week. I have 1 appointment tomorrow morning which is good because it’s my daughter’s half-day at school. So I can be home for her when she is out. Maybe we can watch a movie or I’ll save my errands & she can come on adventures with me! Oh, that’s an even better idea!

I am making incense for Brighid today, I ran out of the incense I had already made for her. So today I’m making more while everyone is out doing their things. :fire: :triquetra: :triskele:


Yay for @triplemoonlove9091 and @CelestiaMoon for encouraging the love! Thank you, ladies!

@Siofra_Strega, good luck adventuring with your daughter tomorrow. That sounds like fun!

I’ve been to the leg doctor and I have an infection. Again. :face_with_diagonal_mouth: So it’s back to the ID doctor for special antibiotics. At least it’s not a bad infection. They just need to clean it up before they do the next step to fixing me which is a skin graft. Hopefully, it will clear up quickly. And I can videoconference her instead of going to the office.

Other than that, not much going on this week for me. I’m reading a really good book, called Starlight Web by one of my favorite authors and the heroine is a forty-something-year-old divorcee witch! It’s nice to see the main character of one of those types of books be someone other than a teenager or twenty-something.

Anyhow, hope y’all are having a good week!


I wish your leg would heal properly for you. I’m sad that it has been going on for so long. I’m happy that you have a helper though.

I am going to try to read. I’m just not sure what yet, I have too many decisions. So I’ll wait for the next book club. I think I already did 2 for this book club. :laughing:


Thank you, love. I’m doing all I can to get my leg to heal. It just is resisting me at every step.

You’ve done a great job for the book club then! Read something that you like that’s not witchy, or that’s fiction. Give your brain a break.


Congratulations @triplemoonlove9091 for the most post is past week and to @CelestiaMoon for all the love shown and given. Wonderful job ladies :heart: :dizzy: :hugs: :mage: :writing_hand:


I’ve decided to start reading a newer Stephen King book. When I was in high school I read every one that I could get my hands on through my early 20s. So it’s been a while. My oldest wants me to let him know how it is so he can borrow it. :laughing: :two_hearts:


My week started out awful and I’m not in the best head space and getting on here makes me feel so much better. I am so excited on Mondays to see new things and I am starting to become more active and cannot wait. This helps me get out of my “funk” for a little bit and it makes me so happy!!! :blush:


Feel free to pop on whenever you would like @Janae_Rochele. Even if it helps a little, it still helps! :heartpulse:


@Siofra_Strega Hope your appointment goes well today, Siofra, and that you enjoy the time with your daughter! And good luck with your incense crafting- have fun! :sparkles::diya_lamp:

@Amethyst So sorry to hear about the infection, Amethyst- but it’s great that they caught it and hopefully it will heal up quickly! :pray: It sounds like a very interesting book with a great heroine- I hope it turns out to be a great read for you! :heart:

@Janae_Rochele I’m sorry the week got off on the wrong foot for you, but that’s great that you’re able to pop in the forum for a recharge! :blush: A dose of magickal support and positivity does do wonders on those blue days. Sending big hugs and I hope the rest of your week goes much better! :two_hearts:


OOH, King is a good choice, especially if you get pre-car accident. After the car accident he had, he’s gotten a bit weirder. Which is scary in and of itself. What book are you going to read?

I’m sorry you’re week has started out bad, but I’m glad we can help make it better for you. Anything I can do to help?

Thanks, @TheTravelWitch_Bry. I’m glad they caught it but darn it I thought I had the infection licked! It’s a very good book, I got to about halfway through it yesterday. I’m really enjoying it!


@Amethyst Oh my gosh! So sorry to hear about the leg infection- sending you healing and peace.

Thanks for the book rec. I hadn’t heard of that book or author before but it sounds amazing, and I am going to get a copy of that one and dive in.

Good luck this week and I hope you’re feeling better soon!


Thank you so much, @miriad79, for your kind wishes. I’m waiting on a call from the specialist now. Hopefully, they’ll call before too long. I hate waiting on a phone call. LOL.

I hope you like the book. She’s one of my favorite authors.

Hope you’re having a good week too!


Its been a whirlwind of days the last couple of weeks and I havent had as much time as I want to be on here, I feel a shift happening so I think I am back and I love being here. @Siofra_Strega I hope you and your daughter made magical memories today, @Amethyst I hope you can get some relief for your leg. @Janae_Rochele I hope your week turns around.


@rachel21 thank you so much, I’m enjoying my time with her more & more. She did spend some time with a friend, but came home & was ready to talk to me about her day & we had some fun in the kitchen.


I think it’s always nice when they make time for us. I hope they cherish it as much as we do. I would give a lot of things to have one more laugh with my mom. I know you would as well.


A post was split to a new topic: Tonight’s Moon Spell Question

So troubled Amethyst to hear of your medical issues. Do take care and sending healing to you Dave


Thanks, @rachel21! I’ve got an appointment next week. Hopefully, they can do something then.

Thanks, Dave! It’s been an ongoing issue for me which is worrisome, but I’ll beat it yet!

As for the best time, for the meditation, I would say any time. But that’s just me. Usually, if the moon’s up I do it if it’s something I want, you know?
