I am now trying to straighten things out and get caught up on my duties here.
I have been nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by a dear friend Shannon at Abstract Lucidity . This comes as a total surprise and I must say a very welcome one. I am honored to even be considered for such an Award. It is indeed a great honor and privilege to accept this Award and proudly display it on the site. Thank you so much, Shannon. I appreciate your thoughtfulness in considering me for the Award. Blessings to you, dear sister.
There are Rules to accepting this Award and they are as follows:

Seven Things About Myself. Hmm, my life is an open book, what don’t you know, lol!
1. I am a Kentucky Hillbilly
2. I am a Solitary Practitioner
3. I am a Hereditary Witch. I was raised around a lot of Granny Magick in the Mountains of Kentucky.
4, I long for the peaceful and quiet life of the Mountains again. It is just so peaceful and beautiful there. If you could see it, you would never want to leave it either.
5. If I moved to the mountains, I would have to make sure they had the internet somewhere up there, lol! I could stand to part with my family and friends here.
6. The WOTC is my baby. But as it has grew and gotten bigger, I now say, “The WOTC is yours, I am just the caretaker.” I sincerely hope you think of the WOTC as your home on the net. Because that is how I want you to think of it.
7. And on a very personal note, I am recently separated from my husband and plan on divorcing. Am I sad, a little but it is something I should have done a long time ago. When the divorce is final, we are going to have one hell of a party! You are all invited!

Thank you so much for the nomination. HUGS
Is it difficult being a witch in the Bible Belt?
The part of Kentucky I am in really ain’t so Bible Belty. All the people that are important to me know what I am. I have run into some narrow minded people recently though. The painters we had here, for instance. They were find painting in all the rooms till they got to my office. Then one of the women painters absolutely refused to go in there. The foreman finally told her to get in there and paint or go home. I heard her say, “but she’s a witch!” I thought to myself, you have been friendly to me all week, what happened? Did I grow horns and a tail all of a sudden?” People like that gripe my rump. Really they are just down right ignorant. I don’t know if they will ever accept what we really are. But living in the Bible Belt, I am lucky this part of the state really isn’t in it.
That reminds me of something similar that happened when I took a world religion class in college. We had to do group projects that involved teaching the class about certain religions. My group was Wicca. There was one woman that refused to participate and wouldn’t go near tarot cards because they were “evil”. She was completely against learning the truth about anything. I can’t imagine living a life like that!
I can’t either. Of course, we have fought ignorant people the whole time we have been on the net. I really believe the internet has been worse than real life. I guess it is because people hide behind their computer screens and they really feel big and bad.
I never figured Mystie would jump into the conversation but I told her she needed to meet some of the people on the site. I just didn’t tell her not to reply to message intended for me, lol! Our history is almost the same. We met up in the Mountains of Kentucky. The only difference in us is that my daddy’s people came out of Louisiana. You never would have guessed that by what she posts and what I post. She is the gris gris bags and all that stuff. I am totally different in that aspect. But being afraid of a deck of cards is pathetic. Being part of the Craft, you might as well let it roll off your back. Unless they get verbal, then that’s a different story. Of course I have a temper and tend to use it when provoked, lol!
I am going to quit saying anything around you. The “growing horns and a tail” were my words, girlfriend. Keep it up and I am going to sit you out on the front porch today. I am going to tell you this but I know you will forget so I am putting it in writing. The way to tell who the messages are addressed to is to look at the right hand side of the comment. There you will see the title of the message. Then you will know if I posted it or you did. If I posted it the comment is directed toward me. If you posted it, the comment is directed toward you. I know you had good intentions and this is something I forgot to tell you. I am sorry for that, sweetie. Now you know. You know I have to say this publically, You are doing a great job! I appreciate you coming to help me out. Thank you Mystie!
wow i was thinking last night that i don’t have the versatile blogger award yet! and now i do! thank you i appreciate this. i will do my post soon. blessed be )O(
Congratulations and thank you for including me! I always think of you and your colleagues when I do my posts on neglected pantheons of deities!
I believe you were one of the first people I met on WordPress, dear friend. As long as I am here, I will consider you just that. You are a great friend and one that stuck with us no matter what. How could I not think of you and your terrific site.
Congratulations! Nice to be in touch with a like minded soul. I am a solitary trad and practice mountain granny magic. Am a “GRIT” (girl raised in the south). You are now commencing the beginning of “the best is yet to be”! Blessings –
Thank you, sweetie. I believe I am too. I should have done it sooner. Where abouts in the south were you raised? Mine started out in Mississippi and then moved to Tennessee and finally landed in Kentucky(that’s my father’s side). My mother’s side came straight from Ireland, landed in Dinwiddle, South Caroline and came to Kentucky. I have no earthly idea what it was about Kentucky. Knowing my bunch, they were giving away free land or something, lol! But momma’s bunch went up in the mountains and daddy’s bunch when the opposite direction. It had to be fate that brought them two together. It is nice to meet a kindred spirit and especially a Southern one.
It should be added that Mystie is also getting a divorce. That is why I am stuck with her, lol! We are both in agreement, we should have left the “SOBs” along time ago.
Well, my Mom’s Dad’s family were Scotch/Irish/English and came over in the 1600s; landed in Virginia. After the Civil War, their part of Virginia became West Virginia. The rest of my family were from Russia. I love the South and am very sure that in some of my prior incarnations I’ve been a southerner. Moved to New York and am looking to move back south. Give me a porch, garden, some chickens and a cow, a room for my dog and cats (14) and some like minded loving old times and old ways and the old religion and I’d be as happy as a New England clam at high tide!!
You sound like you’ve got your hands full, but you are more blessed than you could know. Wish I lived down the road or over the hill so we could have a cup of tea or a shot of whiskey.
Reading your blog and the Craft newsletter, I always smile – makes me feel at home.
