Feeling myself grow

It was a very busy day today so I haven't had a lot of time to just sit and get some reading and knitting done.  I need to manage my time better so I can focus on improving the crafts I love to work on.  In many ways my spirituality is tied up with the arts and crafts.  And not surprisingly I've discovered that there is a spiritual connection with those same arts and crafts and Druidism.

I printed out some lessons from a Druid site.  They're not indepth but they are designed to get a person to think about their spirituality so I believe it's a starting point for me.  I also plan on downloading some podcasts to listen to.  I was going to use Tom's mp3 player but it's pretty full of his and Zach's music so I'm thinking of getting my own.  It depends on how much they cost.

And just to show how whimsical the Gods are...I sat down to fold the laundry and Bell, Book and Candle was on. 

It was very muggy today but I seemed to have a bit more energy.  In part, I'm sure, to the good sleep I got last night.  It might be a coincidence that I slept well after clearing the air, but I'm not a huge believer in coincidence so...

I've got to remember, though, that Tom is still a Christian and remember not to rant about Christianity or its adherents while he's home.  I went too far today but he didn't react to it and I realized my mistake and shut myself up.  I'm used to doing a lot of debriefing with Zach and forgot Tom isn't healing from pain we're trying to heal from.

I'm exhausted from the amount of physical labor I did today although by normal standards it wasn't much.  By my fibromyalgia standards, it was way more than I get done in a week.  So I'm taking it easy the rest of the night and focusing on spinning and some knitting.  Tomorrow I want to get my pencils out again and get back to sketching.  And to give myself a set amount of time for writing, too.  All these are the crafts I feel very drawn to and love that I can express my spirituality through them.

I also want to start getting outside and get some things done but with the head and humidity I'm going to have to do that first thing in the morning since in the evening the yard is full of mosquitoes.  I still need to plant my echinacea, sage and lavender.  At least I'd like to get that done.  And get my tomatoes staked up before the blossoms turn into fruit.

Life is certainly good today.


  1. :) Good day! I'm pleased for you.

  2. I am happy for you. Sounds like you had a really good day.

    Just curious, where are you getting your Druid lessons from? I've been feeling drawn to this path and have been looking for some online lessons.
