My Christmas Wishlist

Here it is again already, Christmastime. How did that happen so soon? Time does fly by. This time last year I had been listening to 8 hours of Christmas music a day at work and sick to death of it. How do retail people do it every year? Since then I changed radio stations. Not due to the change over to Christmas music but because I could finally pick up the public radio station WNKU. Glad Santa brought them some new antennas! I became a member last week and there should be two cd's heading my way as a thank you gift. I am anxiously awaiting those. Anyway back to last year, I was also way too busy at work and otherwise to suit me with no vacation time in sight. This year I am laid back listening to awesome music while my bosses are both out of the office. I did all my shopping online and have all next week off work. Not a stressful bone in my body at this moment. Now that's what I would call a Christmas bonus! Although there has been some news in the family, I personally have not done a lot to speak of this year. Some reflecting, looking back and forward and mostly dreaming of the future. I feel this year has been like a step-over year. Like it has went by with me looking in at myself from afar without being attached. It's weird but that's the only way to explain it. I hope to join up with myself this year and get back to doing more. Wish me luck on that one!

I have been such a good girl this year, I am hopeful that Santa is going to bring me an iPhone 6 and an iPad. I am ready to jump on the iCloud. I am anticipating that I will enjoy sharing my music, photos and books on my different devices. I hope I can figure it out but apparently all you have to do is sign in with your Apple ID and you are all set without having to do a thing but opt in. I will have to update you on my adventure on the cloud once I am floating :o) 

Before closing I want to wish you all the love and happiness you can make and find this holiday season. I hope you get everything your heart desires. Merry Christmas!

Season of the Witch

This time of year everywhere you look there are ghouls, ghosts and, of course, witches galore. A time when the dead can converse with the living and all things seem magical or scary or both. The wind starts to whip and you swear you heard someone speak to you even though there is no one around. The days are shorter and darkness descends. I find things move from where I know they are to someplace they should never be. It takes me the rest of the winter or longer to ever find them again. I always find them though in some odd spot. I binge on scary movies and popcorn and dread the cold.

I don't normally dress up for Halloween other than the occasional witch or some cat ears. If nothing else I at least try to wear orange. This year as I was looking for cat food there out of the blue laid the pretty witch's hat I'm wearing in these pictures. I think it wanted me to buy it so who was I to argue.

I have always had an interest in witchcraft, the Wicca religion and there's nothing better than a scary movie with a nasty witch in it. You never know whether they are good or bad and there's always that mysterious aura around them. Even the bad, ugly, ones are very charismatic. In real life witchery has not always been so glorified. You can read about witchcraft here on Wikipedia and about Wicca here.

One thing that comes up a lot when reading about ancient witchcraft is a lot of women where accused of being witches just because they had red hair. If you happen by and smell the cauldron bubbling, see the frogs hopping and hear me cackling think nothing of it. We'll have a glass of brew and a shiny red pretty :o)

Back to work

I was back to work today in full swing and not wearing my black skirt. As bad as I just wanted to grab it and throw it on this morning I didn't. Yay for me. I hate coming back after a few days off. It seems everybody, and their brother too, want to talk to me. It's ok though, I am trying to stay busy to keep from thinking about how much it is going to cost to get my car fixed. Way, way too much! I'd rather it break down now than this winter in the middle of a snowstorm I guess. I was just extremely bummed because it died on my birthday. With any luck I'll be cruising this time tomorrow with no worries. I'm letting them fix everything. Main thing was the fuel pump went out. Not cheap.

I wanted to share some pictures I got of the moon last night and thought what the heck, how about a picture of my cute dress while I'm at it. I wasn't able to see the moon when it was supposed to turn red but it sure was bright. No blood moon for me but very pretty too look at for sure. I was kind of psyched for the American Horror Story premiere last night and wanted to waste a few minutes beforehand so I could skip through the commercials so I went out and photographed the moon. I love to do that sometimes but where I live I can't always see it. Down in a valley where the tall trees grow. To be honest though, I think I was more impressed with the moon than the show. It might not be my cup of tea this year. Another bummer....but I did get a great deal on the dress and a beautiful show put on by nature last night so I can't complain. Ok, I know...too late!
