The Wicked Witch is Back With Her Motley Crew, August 1st


Imbolc/Candlemas Comments

To all our friends downunder….

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……

Till then,

Oh, how I love you and I am so glad to be back,

Lady of the Abyss

    1. We did a lot of crying the first night we were home. Darn it felt so good and like a dream at the same time. You don’t realize what you have or had till it is gone. I know I am truly grateful to be home and as the old saying goes, “there is no place like home!” You know if we all keep crying, I am investing in Kleenex stock, lol! So are you moved yet?

    2. No, not completely moved yet. It’s just been to hot here to load a truck and then unload it. We’re basically living in two houses and it seems like you always need the item that’s at the other house. LOL! But hopefully we will be moved in by the end of this month. I’m so happy for you! Take care!

      1. Moving isn’t fun at all is it. That is why the first night we could live back in ours, we packed up the beds and what we needed to stay the night. After that we were there every night, just moving boxes and stuff back and forth after that. That will wear you out, plus you have to stop and eat and everything else, it is a chore. Living in two houses, I don’t know how you do it. It happened to be hot here at the time we made our move. Then would you believe it dropped off to the 80’s. Now at night it is in the 60’s and we are sleeping with the windows open. If only we had this weather when we moved. Take care of yourself moving in the heat. Don’t over due it or come down with heat exhaustion. I know you are eager to get settled in one house but take your time and don’t over due. I hope you can make it to the chat but if you can’t I understand. I guarantee you there will be other chats. I enjoy talking to you and would definitely miss you if you weren’t but your moving is more important right now and I understand that completely. It is good to hear from you this morning. Take care and you get a moment, let me know how it is going.

    1. Hey there sweets,
      It is good to be home. The inside is finished and livable but we still have the noise of the construction workers in the late evenings. They are still finishing up the outside. You don’t know how good it is to be home. I got tickled Lord M told me there was no way I was leaving home again unless it was in a body bag. I hope he meant old age. Hmm, will have to ask him about that, now that I think about it. He has been super. He has absolutely pushed the builders to their limits to get the cabin rebuilt. I love Eleanor and Lynette to pieces but you have to imagine there were 5 adults and 2 teenagers in a house about the size of a cracker boxes. When two of those witches have a tendency to be hot heads, well I don’t have to tell you. But anyway it was time to go. They have all been down to the cabin. Lynette wanted to know if there was room on the couch for her. Jacob told her, “no, Kade(the pup) is sleeping there.” But he was kind enough to offer her space to throw up a tent in the back. He is such a good boy. He thinks like me, lol! So how are you on this beautiful Lammas Morn’? It is rather chilly here, strange weather for the first of August. Oh, are you going to make it to chat Saturday? I would love to talk to you so more. Last time you just disappeared, I didn’t know where you went. Don’t do that, you make me think I am losing my mind and my sis. Got to run for now. It is great to see you and hear from you.
      Have a very blessed Lammas,
      Love ya,
      A

      1. Well crappity crap crap crap.. I’m sure that in chat I let everyone know that I had to log out.. I’m terribly sorry Kit.. but Lammas Blessings to you and all our Sisters.. it’s good that you’re finally settling back in in your own home. There’s no rush to get all unpacked.. please take your time do it. You have loads of help there that’s for sure. You’re lucky and blessed to be surrounded by so many that love and care so much about you.. to be surrounded by that much love must feel so warm and good. Today the skies are very overcast but there isn’t any rain in our forecast.. this has been such a looong hot humid summer. We didn’t have Spring.. we jumped straight from winter to summer. We don’t normally have the really hot temps until August or a week or so into August but this year it was more like the end of May beginning of June… and I don’t like it. We need rain and cooler temps. I’m still working and Fri/Sat/ and Sun are my busiest times but I’ll try to remember to pop into chat.. if I do, it won’t be for very long.. 9am my time right? So much crap going on here that I forget things too easily.. I forget what time I popped in that Saturday.. and I”m sorry I missed your ritual.. I best get going.. I dial through the week as well and should be doing that right now.. argh.. Loveaybunches.. celtie

      2. Hey sis,
        I can’t understand it, I am still having to approve your comments. That makes no sense whatsoever. You might have told everyone that you were leaving and I missed it. I know at the time, people were coming and going. Trying to be a good hostess, I was trying to greet all of them. I would live dangerously and let Eleanor host a chat but we might never have another chat if she hosted one. I love her, don’t get me wrong. Speaking of love, it is nice to be loved but it can smother you. I have had people up my rump for way to long. Don’t do this, let me get that for you, where are you going, what are you going to do, I know they mean well but good grief, a witch needs her space. The last few days have been a dream come true. We have the plugs for the phone and we just found the phone last night. We weren’t really looking that hard for it. I know now I wish I had lived back in the early pioneer days, no phone, no internet, just peace and quiet. Well maybe internet. I know I missed it more than anything. I guess I am too nosy I want to know what is going on. But the peace and quiet has been very refreshing. It has been so cool here that we have been able to open the windows at night and sleep with them open. That is very unusual for us. It should be in the 100’s right now. Instead it is in the low 80’s during the day and 60’s at night. We didn’t have much of a Spring either. I think we had about a week or two of cool, window opening weather and then it was up in the 90’s. We don’t have much of a Spring anymore or a Fall and I love both seasons. And they say our planet is not suffering from climate change, HA! There is an old saying around here, that for every fog you have in August there will be a snow in the winter. So far we are on day two and it has been foggy as hell. I guess we are going to have one heck of a winter. Probably snow up to our rumps. I don’t like Winter anymore. Last year wasn’t bad but that was unusual also. Now how on earth did we get on the weather. I am sure we can find better things to talk about. How are you and your bunch doing? Is hubby still wanting to chat when you are on the computer? You need a “do not disturb” sign to hang on the door when you are on the computer. It figures though, every time I get on the computer, all hell breaks loose around here. I have learned to multi-task and take lots of nerve pills, no, not really. I take enough regular medicine without adding anything to it. The guys were cleaning the yard up since some of it had grown up. Apparently there was some poison Sumac in the yard. I developed a strange rash from my neck to my ankles, I kid you not. I went to the specialist Monday and she decided that I had developed an allergy to either poison Ivy or Sumac. Since we haven’t seen any ivy in years, it had to be the Sumac. She told me that you could catch it by just being outside in the wind. You didn’t have actually touch it or nothing. I got a steroid shot, on a steroid pack and anti-itch pills. I guess out comes the bubble, huh! I have never been allergic to any of that stuff. She told me your body just changes over time. Hell I wish my body would stop with the damn changes. This is pathetic. But besides that, my blood is tolerating the new medicine good. Now watch since it is experimental, I will grow a tail. I guess if I do I can run off and join the circus then. Well, sweetie, I have talked your ear off. Got to get to work before everybody thinks we took the day off. I hope to see you Saturday and yes chat is at 10 so I guess it would be 9 your time. I always swore up and down, we were on the same time zone. That is what I get for swearing. Anyway, I am off for now (as you know), get a minute, give me a holler. I love hearing from you. Have a great day, sis,
        Love ya,
        Kit

      3. Heya Sweet Thang 🙂 hahahaha.. so you’re still having to approve my messages.. well.. seems that I’m surrounded by many who feel they are above me and must approve of this and that before I do.. or critique what I say.. whatever.. I’ll do and say what I want when I want.. I’m greatful that so far my messages are getting through though.. YAY.. I can understand your needing for some space.. I don’t get much privacy either.. it’s rare.. but when it happens.. ooooh man it feels so good. I know you feel somewhat smothered.. but darling sister.. you’re life was almost snuffed out.. your existence was hanging by a thread.. and you are so precious to me.. us.. you know, there’s a lot of people out there who are in need of care and can’t afford it.. can’t get it.. and are having to do without.. you’re situation has been so serious.. I know you’re thankful .. and greatful.. so am I.. if I lived closer, I’d be one of them right by your side and not taking no for an answer.. you are sooooo loved (((hugs))).. at least you know for a fact that they aren’t phonies.. they’re there because they truly want to be.. because you matter.. I was thinking.. do you realize that we’ve known each other now for .. what.. 15 years? 16? WOW.. have you ever heard any news on Gypsy? I was trying to remember the name of that group.. something Cauldron? or the Cauldron something? My memory is crap… Seems like forever ago.. and what’s happening with your kids? You haven’t mentioned them in a while either. Becky and her 2 kids are still living here.. and my son and his wife.. wow.. they’ll be celebrating their 1 year wedding anniversary in September.. things have been pretty tense around here.. oh yeah.. I was going to ask you.. is there an area around here where you can send private messages?? or is everything public? I need to go.. I gotta get back to dialing… sending happy day wishes.. Loveyabunches .. celtie

      4. Sugar is definitely flowing from your mouth today, lol! Flattery, flattery, flattery, will get you every where with me, sis and you know that. I love you anyway. As far as me having to approve you is because WordPress has up-dated some of the larger sites security. They started it when FB first got their rumps in trouble and have been working on it ever since. I don’t know how many times I have to approve you before they realize I actually know you and you are a real person. But it is WordPress at work. They especially check all the comments that come through here because personally I believe we were one of the first Witchcraft sites they let on here. They want to make sure we are on the up and up, no I am just kidding. They just check everyone before the comments come to the sites. It is to stop hackers from ever reaching the site. WordPress is a good place to have a blog or start a business. I am always singing their praise, they do a wonderful job on protecting all their sites. Maybe one day they will figure out you are for real, lol! I have to admit I have enjoyed the privacy but the minute we get to the office, they start grilling the boys on what I have done the night before. I told the boys the next time they asked to tell them I went crazy and started swinging from trees during the middle of the night. Gee, I know they are concerned but give me a break, I am not going to do anything that I ain’t suppose too. I would love to have you down here in this mess You would either have a ball and laugh your ass off or go crazy, one of the other. I haven’t mentioned my kids in a while because they read this blog daily to see what dear old mom is up too. So I try to keep them off the pages. When I use to talk about them, I would hear about it. I asked them if they were reading the site and finally got them to admit it. It doesn’t seem like our kids ought to be as old as they are. Does that mean we are getting old? I have three grandchildren. One of them is getting ready to go in middle school this year. But I am a young grandmother thank the Goddess, lol! In regards to your question about a private place to send messages to, I have several hidden sites here. I could send you one of their addys and we could use that if you wanted to talk privately. Let me know and I will send one of them two you. Just don’t laugh at the crazy designs or graphics on them because I use them to experiment on before I bring stuff over here. But I will be more than happy to send one of the addys to you. They are all marked private and the search engines and the general public cannot find them. So all our secrets would be safe there. So what do you do dial and then post over here? I have days I think I can multi-task good and days I can’t, today happens to be one of those “can’t” days! When your fingers get tired, give me a holler. I will be here for a while. Get off today, it is back to unpacking, JOY! JOY! JOY!. Got to run.
        Love ya,
        Kit

      5. Heya Kit.. this will be short.. I’m bogged down here with work and this weekend is a big weekend in our town.. it’s a long holiday weekend here in Canada.. Civic Holiday and for the last 40 years our town holds a HUGE full weekend Fri/Sat/Sun and Mon event.. there’s music groups playing.. starting tonight.. and hubby wants to go see them.. now I’ve always loved watching a live group play.. there’s 3 unknown groups going on before the big name one.. which tonight is 54-40? I think that’s what they’re called.. and then he wants to go tomorrow night to see Blue Rodeo.. I looked up 54-whatever on youtube and it turns out I know the music.. just didn’t know the name of the group.. anyway.. this year, rather than holding the concerts uptown at our Market Square, they’re holding them up at the hospital park.. which means we won’t be bringing lawn chairs.. which means I have to bring a blanket and we sit on the grass.. which would be wonderful if I had a better back. Hubby is going to HAVE to help me get up. I’ve taken a couple of muscle relaxants and hoping my back doesn’t go into spasms and go out on me.. we’ll be leaving in about an hour and the concerts don’t start for a few hours after that.. but we need to find a spot to put our blanket. I’ve started to pack my backpack with a few things. Bottled water, the blanket, a bit of munchies.. a trustie roll of toilet paper.. and baggie with paper napkins.. and my bottle of muscle relaxants. Do I really want to go? ummmm, I love to rock out.. the music will be cool.. but, I’d prefer to avoid the crowds. I don’t like being in large crowds. I feel to much.. I put up shields but holding them up steady for 6 or more hours is a bit much. And yes.. I’d like to be able to have some privacy with our conversations.. and that’s no offense to anyone here.. but we sometimes get talking about things and I forget that we are public.. and nooooo we aren’t getting older, the kids are.. hahahahahaha.. should get going here and get some more things ready and spend a bit of time with my grand daughter before she goes.. today she goes back to her dads.. and you Lil Missy.. be careful.. Loveyabunches.. celtie
