I am trying to be more positive since some crap went down at work with people I THOUGHT were friends, ending up blocking, deleting and setting high privacy settings, more about that another time.
Mike came over today and he took stuff to the basement so I could go through more stuff and was feeling GREAT about what I was purging and keeping UNTIL, we opened the storage room. HOLY SHIT BATMAN!! where am I going to keep all of the Yule, Samhain decorations and trees?? Where will I store the stuff we only use now and again? I don't know...
I am like the wind, just breathing through this until it is the weekend of next week when we move and then I will deal with all of this, or I will be using the basement which we aren't suppose to do.
To make me happy I am posting some elemental pictures below this only because I love the Elements... I am a nerd and I am ok with that LOL
|I designed and stitched these, they will make a nice size for an altar cloth!|
Not sure where I found the prayer, but it is wonderful!
