Good afternoon, my luvs! The graphic expresses exactly what I have seen for two days. I hope the sun is shining, it is warm and a beautiful day, wherever you are. We are having a very unusual Winter. It has been in the 60’s and raining for 2 days now. After I sit and watch it rain, I sort of get wild and wacky, thus the greeting above. I guess I get ants in my pants. I have to do something whether it is right or wrong, lol! I have already planned on cooking supper which is on the wacky side of me. I hate to cook. I can cook now. Everyone tells me I am a gourmet chef. I just cook like my mother did and she was a country cook. It wasn’t unusual for daddy to go out and shoot a squirrel. He would bring it home. Momma would skin it and cut it up. Then she would cook squirrel and gravy or just simply fry it. I know some of you just curled up your nose, squirrel? It is good. It actually tastes like chicken. I know everything odd taste like chicken, squid, octopus, rattlesnake, etc. But I am not planning anything like that for supper. We are going to have some ribs. Oh, I miss ribs in the Winter. But I have been baking them and they are delicious. After that I am sure I will find something else to get into.
But enough with my menu and my wild and wackiness on rainy days. Let’s get on with what’s important.
Have a fantastic day!

Spellcrafting for Wednesday, Jan. 25th
Lay or sit in a place where you will not be disturbed for at least five minutes.
Get comfortable. If you are sitting, your back should be straight.
Sitting or lying down, your legs should be crossed.
If sitting, rest your hands, palms down, in your lap. Close your eyes.
Visualize a golden ball of beautiful, warm light surrounding your feet.
If you cannot “see” the golden ball when you visualize it, its okay, just know it is there. The ball of golden warm light always brings peace and total relaxation. Wherever the ball goes tension departs.
Now allow this ball of light to rise up your legs and up your torso.
Then allow it to go down your arms to your fingers, and finally up your neck and into your head until covered with total peace and relaxation and all tension is gone. If you feel tension anywhere, send the ball there and the tension will vanish. Stay in this state for a few moments. If you are having trouble sleeping, try this.
Be at one with yourself. When you are ready to come out of this state of deep relaxation, take three deep breaths and feel fresh life and energy coming out of your body with each breath.
