Cookies and Tea

The weather is changing.  There has been a heat wave for the last few days.  I am not a fan of hot weather.  It makes me feel simultaneously agitated and droopy, with the need to escape and retreat from the relentless solar assault. 

Last night though, there was a dramatic shift, and today it's been overcast, cloudy and grey.  What I like to call "witchy weather."  A time when the Otherworld is within grasp, and magic is possible.  Grasses rustle in the chill air, crows caw and circle with messages from beyond, and the transitory state of nature is a reminder to appreciate the moments as they pass. 

I am snuggled within my cozy condo, a candle burning merrily on the altar, happily feasting on jelly cookies and lavender tea.  It feels so good to be home.


  1. Lovely! We have a woodfire today, as it's very chilly here in the hills right now. And I've baked a crustless pumpkin pie. It's been raining since yesterday, but right now, the sun has come out.

    And I think I'll do the same -- A good walk on a pretty day.

  2. 'Witchy weather' is right on! I'm not a fan of summer either (must be the Scandi blood). Winter Nights is nearing and the change can be felt.
