Wishing You & Yours A Very Beautiful & Blessed Imbolc!
I know I am probably a day late on wishing everyone down under “A Very Happy & Blessed Imbolc!” If I am not a day late, then I am probably posting this and they will see it early Thursday morning down there. My life’s story a day late, a dollar short!
So how have all of you been doing? I hope super!!! I know I am having my first taste of freedom in several, several months but tired out also. I didn’t realize we had that much stuff to move. Someone told me, “we had lost everything in the fire.” Come to find out there was somethings that were salvageable and in a storage unit. Not only did we have to move the boys and my stuff out of the rental house, we also had to empty a storage unit. We had plenty of help, everyone from the office chipped in and helped. I guess we were probably moved in, not out of boxes though, in about three days. The first day, the boys and I put up our beds and packed everything we needed to spend the night. Somebody went off and forgot the TV (Jacob), which turned out not to be such a big deal after all. We ended up walking to the pond and just sitting there till the night sky came out. Then we laid back and talked about Mystie and all the memories we had at our home. The mosquitos got bad so we had to pack up and come back to the house. Darn, I guess because no one has been here the mosquitos were hungry and tried to carry us off. But Lord M put the guys to work on the yard and got rid of all the weeds, mowed the lawn and trimmed what hedges were left. It was dangerous when they mowed the lawn because of the nails and screws that had been dropped. You would hear something fly by you and it would be a nail picked up by the lawnmower. When we mow, we now need a suit of armor to do so.
We are glad to be home to say the least. We are still unpacking boxes but I told the boys, “hey, we have the rest of our lives to unpack those boxes, who cares?” I am just so delighted to be home. You don’t realize how much something means to you or you miss something to it is gone. I love this place to pieces. Lord M hired the contractors and gave them a general idea of what the place looked like before. He added a little extra touch. Remember, the place isn’t finished yet but almost. All they like to do is finish the porch which is going to surround the cabin and have landscape lights under it. The idea is for the place to look like it is floating at night. I wasn’t suppose to know about it till the cabin was finished. It was Lord M’s surprise to me and I wasn’t suppose to know anything about it till the cabin was finished. Lord M saw that Eleanor and I were getting on each other’s nerves. He knew if we stayed around each other much longer we would be casting spells against each other. So he told me the inside was complete and was liveable if we wanted to move back home. You can imagine my answer, “HELL YES!” Back to the story (see I never change, too easy to get side tracked), the contractors finished the front of the cabin. Lord M made me close my eyes and drug me outside the first night and showed me my surprise. I was stunned, breathless and couldn’t believe it, it is absolutely beautiful. I cried, the boys cried, Lord M cried, some of the contractors that were still working shed a tear and we all did a group hug. When I find my camera, keyword “when” I will take some pics and post them for you all to see.
I have to say the last few months have been hell but coming home and seeing the cabin made it all worth it. I have so much to tell you but I don’t want to bore you to tears. I do want to thank you for everything you have done for me in the past few months. Your donations, your energy, your prayers, your thoughts, have meant the world to me and the boys. You have given me to the courage to survive it all and come out better for it. I have been humbled, I have had operation after operation, I have even had a heart attack and through it all I survived. I have learned and learned a lot in the past few months, be very grateful for what you have because you never know when you will be knocked flat on your face. Even though I might not have been here, I could feel your love and prayers and you helped me to survive it all, for that my dear, precious family, I thank you!
Now I am going to catch a few winks, we are going to have a little Pre-Lammas celebration tonight and then a big one tomorrow night. Hey, we just like to party. Tomorrow night, since it is Lammas, we figured it would be a great time to do a house blessing and have a house warming. Eleanor and I will be doing the house blessing together. Oh, yes, she is still here. We might fight like cats and dogs but we love each other. We have just put money on how long Lynette and Eleanor will live together. Lynette has finally made up her mind, she is staying also. They tell me, I need someone to look out for my rump, HA!
Anyway, my luvs, we will see you tomorrow……
Oh, how I love you and I am so glad to be back,
Lady of the Abyss
