Protection pouches

I made a couple protection pouches last night.
one for my sister and her family in Long Island NY.
luckily they are safe!
no power and flooding.. but they are safe!
love you sister!!

and one for me..

I put nine herbs inside. and a lucky stone.
I can't remember all the herbs.. marjoram, lavendar, sage, etc.. for protection and safety

said a prayer..
something like

may you stay safe and dry
may you feel warm and happy
may the storm pass quickly
may your home be blessed

blessed be

and they sit in my windowsill charging under the moon


want to see some of my Halloween decorations?

Happy Birthday Dad

you are 71 years old today.
you've been gone for a year and a half and I miss you every day. The pain gets easier to bear, but never really goes away. 
I still cry in the car, when a thought about you, a memory, or an image of you comes into my mind.
I still cry in random places, for no reason. yeah. it's not unusual.
the girls miss you so much.
they love their gramps
I am so glad they got to spend what time they could with you guys.

we know you are hanging out with mama. probably driving her nuts
we know
you two are happy

there are times when I feel you guys.
truly feel you here. with me.
I thank you for that.

here's some cake n pressies for you pops

and in the words of a great man

May you stay forever young.
