It was great. First, it was the first weekend of Sean's vacation. Second, I got to go shopping. For crafts. What more do you need?!
On Saturday I went to the Holiday Craft sale in our town with one of my best friends. I spent 60 bucks. Ridiculous, isn't it? In my defense some of it was stuff I was going to buy anyway, like spice mix and red pepper jelly. There were some fabulous cheese curds that I just had to buy, I hadn't had fresh cheese curds in about a decade! I also bought some super cute leggings for Brianna for Yule. Here is the link, if you care to look! I bought "G" and "O". G, with the little bird was just cute, and O with the squirrel was just meant to be. Squirrels are Sean's animal, so Brianna has a bunch of squirrel stuff. Mine is a spider. Does Brianna have any spider stuff? No. This is where you would see me rolling my eyes and sticking my tongue out at Sean. I also bought a beautiful bright green Pashmina for ritual wear. Saturday night, we did the Toxic "Friend" spell. It went very well, and I definitely feel a weight lifted. This was Sean's first time casting the circle (almost) by himself, he usually just tells me to do it! It was really nice to have him participate like that.
Sunday, the same friend I went to the Craft Sale with and her husband came over for lunch. She brought her amazing super dill potato salad. They stayed until about 5 pm, it was so nice to have them visit. We really don't do it enough. All of us are rather hermit-like. Then we went to go see the first half of the new Harry Potter, it was really good and effects were amazing. As always though, I was ticked off at what they left out. It's ridiculous how mad I get about it! Everything should be just like the book! Okay, I'm done there.
This coming week is going to be really busy, so forgive me if I miss a day of posting! This afternoon I have an Ultrasound appointment, just to confirm my doctor's diagnosis. Hopefully that will go well. Tuesday Sean has a doctor's appointment to figure out what is wrong with him, he is just, off. We aren't really sure how to describe it even. Also, the doctor wants to check his stitches and he will probably have to get blood work. Wednesday we are going to the above mentioned friends house for a photo shoot (she is a photographer) for our family portrait this year and for dinner. I'm going to show her how to make homemade mayonnaise, and we are probably going to do some Yule baking as well. Thursday I think Sean and I are going out for dinner. Friday might be my only empty day...maybe.
So that's my week. I'm defiantly going to make a serious attempt at my next homemade Yule post, and I want to do another Yule-y post. Not quite sure yet. Probably something about food. I like food.
I would really appreciate it if you lovely readers would send us some good energy, just for the crazy doctors things. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and that wherever you are, the weather has been warmer than it has been here!
