Iðunn’s Haven

Inspection and financing are still pending (and, really, the inspection worries us more than the financing, as we already know how much the the maximum is that the broker would give us provided we have the down payment), but virtually the worst part of the process of buying a house, is behind us, since we…

We’ve been kind of busy…

I have completely forgotten to do my September arrivals post for local produce, and I haven’t really updated with things that have happened. The Feathered Terror had a second health scare. She was only hospitalized one night, this time, and per the veterinarian’s guidance, we decided to get her the Suprelorin implant to prevent hormonal…

Freyfaxi Blessings

I’m a little late, but we’ve been recuperating from being social, after several weeks of staying mostly home. The week before the Meadmaster and I went on vacation, I found out that I finally landed a permanent position at the government healthcare agency where I’ve been working for only two and a half years! Permanent,…

What The Hel Is Going On?

In the last few days, I have seen a lot of prominent members of the magical community either comment, or being alarmed by a trend on WitchTok where witchlets/dabblers have been hexing things they shouldn’t be hexing (the Fae, the Moon, the Sun), claiming the gods fear them (um, no… just no) or having « intercourse »…

Big Project Ahead

The Meadmaster and I have been looking at finances, and, believe it or not, we’re this close to potentially buying a house. Our income and finances would have no problems making the mortgage payments, and we’re about halfway there for a down payment and closing fees. This is exciting. In the meantime, we are planning…

Meditation

I really need to get to it and start the meditation chapter in Inner Temple. I’ve never been big on meditation, even during my years actually in a coven, at least on my own. I prefer guided meditations where someone is actually talking. I know there is the option of purchasing the companion CDs, but…

Slice of Life : St. John’s Feast, Culture Shock Edition

We have a show called Infoman on Radio Canada, which takes a humourous spin on current events, while still being very informative. It isn’t pure satire, and despite the main animator’s obvious tongue-in-cheek questions to the people he interviews, he’s usually respectful and therefore well-liked by the celebrities and politicians he interviews, even when he…

Humility and Self-Confidence

Since deciding that I’ve been out of practice for so long and to put myself through the paces with Christopher Penczak’s Temple of Witchcraft book series, I have made myself somewhat of a study plan in the form of an Excel sheet, on which I have put tabs for reading chapters, tabs for doing exercises,…
