Here’s a thing you should know. (Or maybe NOT know. If you’re suggestible, like me, look away.) Were you aware that See’s Candy has post-holiday, on-line only, more-than-half-price sales? Yeah. Me neither. Until now. Some chocolate showed up on our doorstep today. It’s outstandingly good (duh, their stuff ALWAYS is). And the most amazing bargain of all time. Also, arrived AT OUR DOOR!
Okay, let’s keep moving. There were some comments made recently mentioning a potentially negative, and absolutely very sad, situation with bees. I can’t actually allow my mind to go there. Additionally, that is not what’s happening here, where I live. Earlier today there was a news release, this is the story, of much hope, on a similar topic. (It featured THIS local company.)
On the astrological front, at some-minutes-past noon today (one of my alarm setting times, in fact, when I need to get anywhere EARLY) Pluto went Retrograde. Read the full post HERE to get all of the MOST important info. As Sarah says, “…. the bigger our resistance to it, the bigger the impact of that resistance.”
In our card altar room we have another theme going, the idea of socialization and staying connected is running deep this week. Also, this one is another 33. Nice, huh? Oooo, we do love our Magick around here.
“The Camel Boy ~ 33 ~ small steps, asking for help
When the Camel Boy comes as your Ally, he reminds you that asking for help will bring in the right people to ease the burden of your life. Perhaps a wise person appears to give you advice. Maybe you are moving and suddenly a couple of friends offer to give you a hand with the packing. Or you want information about someone and you just happen to run into his former business partner, who gives you the knowledge you need to make the decision you’ve been weighing.
No matter the issue, this is a sign that if you ask, you will receive what you need. Synchronicity is engaged when you request assistance. The Camel Boy never lets you down when you ask for help in lightening your load. Now is the time to do so – and to expect to get it.”
Camels have been appearing as symbols in my life lately, so this message counts as even MORE of a big damn deal than usual.

is from Corina, who found this (credited to Kitty Degler), without even knowing that I’d been searching for it. (I changed some of the singular parts to plural, because ya know, I’m like that.)
Now I lay me down to rest.
I pray that all the world be blessed,
Lady Moon and Sister Star,
Watch over us all from afar.
Mother Earth is always there,
And keeps us safe within her care.
The Lord of Dreams will dance and sing,
And happy dreams to all will bring.
And when I wake to greet the day,
Brother Sun will light my way.

did not go too poorly. I’d even go so far as to call it one of my (inadvertent) successes.
Although I’ve since been given* more detailed instructions, so next time will be an improved version. We hope. (There were some croutons that I had stopped being fond of, so I bashed them up and used that in place of real breadcrumbs. Except that later I ended up adding a bit of Panko to the mix.)
*Which I promptly lost, but have re-requested that they be sent anew.
We ate them with a spoon. Because the “breading” wanted to fall off. And I wanted it NOT to when I put the bite in my mouth. When it doubt: scoop and shovel.
