Quarantine Ramble

Dear friends, I just wanted to do an update and I donโ€™t know when this will be published but I am starting the writing process on Saturday, April 11. I have been going through different emotions during the quarantine and I am very thankful that now my anxiety and asthma is under control I feel fine โ€“ this lifestyle is not new to me when it comes to staying home-the only thing I really miss is shopping in the real world along with seeing my friends in person. Last night I learned about Sephora dropping off all employees except for corporate and that bothered me severely enough so that I posted on Instagram about it and I will admit that I went off I was upset and angry that they took this measure. I feel as if they did not think about the people-because of coronavirus, many people are losing their jobs many businesses are filing for bankruptcy and the world will never be the same as it was before coronavirus. I have shared articles about coronavirus many of times and there are rumors that are probably true that it was here before it was publicly announced as a problem this morning I posted on Instagram an apology note for overflowing my feelings even though I do not regret doing that post. Today is another day of knitting and coffee. Right now as I speak I am watching #FlippingVegas, they are working on a duplex and I am having many many pipe dreams. Speaking of pipe dreams, I have always wanted a she shed, I have a she space but sometimes I need a change of scenery it does not include my neighbors backyard which is hideous so one never knows if this pipe dreams will come true but thereโ€™s always a chance because when you think about it my three-year-old was a pipe dream and now I have my sweet little Chihuahua. Anyway I am still waiting on the shipment of my animal wisdom tarot cards. Yes it is very very frustrating because I ordered them on April 6 with also an order of yarn from eBay, the yarn has arrived and the cards have not shipped โ€“ I saw something that if they did not ship by the 23rd that I could cancel and get a refund excuse me but itโ€™s been a week and a half and there is no movement on shipping?-In other news I am definitely enjoying their lives from my witchy friends. Somehow I seem to be quicker with the knitting when Iโ€™m watching a live podcast. Iโ€™ve thought about going live myself but I donโ€™t feel experienced enough in a make up world or the witchcraft world to be an influencer like that this morning I made myself a grilled cheese and it was not as good as Iโ€™d hoped even though I did not burn the entire thing-I am definitely not a kitchen witch. I remember I said the other day or the other week other month whenever this quarantine bullshit started then I would not buy any cosmetic products during Quarantine well that went to a big failure because one of my favorite companies released a โ€œlimited editionโ€œ which I had to have because it was in the โ€œfestival collectionโ€œ so thatโ€™s on order I donโ€™t know whether to finish the skein iโ€™m working on with the #ACMOmbre mini blanket or Play with my Tarot cards, as of right now I have two decks of taro because I definitely want to learn more about the four different suits -meanwhile the dogs have been sleeping all day. Enough rambling, for now, I got to post this and continue with my day stay tuned for more articles and journal entries.

Wednesday Rambling

Good morning and welcome to the one-year anniversary of the untimely passing of our dear friend Luke Perry. I have decided to spend some time by myself windowshopping doing a little retail therapy because of circumstances. Just purchased some Juniper and white sage leaves because itโ€™s that kind of day. I am going to share some information later about politics and who is and is not still in the running for President of the United States. So after I went to #EastMeetsWest, I made my way to #Spencers & found myself some more incense, coffee mug and incense burner not necessarily an incense burner but something Iโ€™m going to use for it. And thereโ€™s also something going on with Chris Matthews and him abruptly resigning from his television gig along with something about the spotted lantern fly-itโ€™s going to be a busy day when I get home for blog posting which is a good thing because Iโ€™ve been lacking and slacking. Until later I bid you a farewell.

Weekly Rambles Of A Groundhog

ย Good morning and happy Super Bowl Sunday/Groundhog Day. I have been having many thoughts going through my head today yesterday and the day before. Some of which is very frustrating from things that Iโ€™ve learned from past relationships. And youโ€™re damn straight Iโ€™m gonna dump it. I found out some things that very much bother me from my first official relationship and it is infuriating me Because it has to do with something I have zero control over. I donโ€™t give two shits what I do I wonder the bus because this blog is about my mental health and right now there is a chink in the fence. I found out that my gut instinct from the family of my former fiancรฉ was true and I am very very angry about it because I cannot stand people like that who discriminate. I know it was 10+ years ago but to find it out now really fucking hurts. Because I am โ€œdisabledโ€œ they did not find my relationship with their son worthy enough they did not approve of my being in the family they didnโ€™t give two shits that we love each other. There are things that I cannot do because of my โ€œdisabilityโ€œ but there are things that I can do-I pose the question to different ways and the reply was โ€œbut they didnโ€™tโ€œ for some reason I feel like it doesnโ€™t matter that this past situation bothers me and right now โ€“ this is why I am sometimes frightful of trusting anyone.ย  It is shameful on the parental units that they are so close-minded. Now that I have released the aggregation and annoyance of the latest personalized news, I can move on until the next shoe of frustration appears. This morning I did some much needed retail therapy even though I spent more than originally planned. I got my intended affirmation cards and tarot cards along with a purpose candle. The stories I shared this morning weren’t what I was expecting to post especially when it came to Shannen Dohertyโ€™s health. She’s a very strong woman for working through the illness to honor Luke Perry. Even though the article claims that the only castmate she confided in was Brian Austin Green. I was just cruising the interwebs I saw a comment about Luke and wonder if he was also in the know. Anyway, itโ€™s a few days past the last time I updated and I wanted to get this entry published. Even before I started studying the craft I was obsessed with aromatherapy -specifically for the past 4 years or so – I truly believe in the amazing benefits of different scents. I’ve always loved tropical scents because it takes me back to my island life. Something that certainly misses. So thankful for my eclectic mix of friends from every walk of life. Reading the news about the clergy and others who have been accused of misconduct in whatever fashion makes me feel like I am on the right path spirituality. I was commenting on aromatherapy before I went random. I love the different types of scents that help with the energy and chakras etc even if you do not burn candles or incense sometimes the scent is powerful enough to make a difference in the dwelling. I know that I benefit from the changed atmosphere. As my path continues I think I am going to expand my knowledge of the other realms of religious freedom. Thatโ€™s one of the many benefits of being eclectic, I can study whatever I want and learn from different aspects. So Iโ€™m going off into another ramble because itโ€™s just how it goes with me. Iโ€™m definitely concerned about Shannen Dohertyโ€™s newly announced return of cancerโ€ฆ In fact, when I purchased my incense cones the other day, I donated to Spencers cancer fund. There are two books that Iโ€™m interested in & crazy enough I don’t have a picture image in my head. Today though I did adopt two new palmstones, Finally got my goldstone & my hematite- my goldstone has namaste inscribed. Enough rambling for now so I must return to study hall.ย
