I harvested some sage, rosemary and lavender yesterday. I separated them into two bundles and now they're rolled up in paper to dry out. I haven't tried this paper method before so I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out. The apartment sure smells good.
I walked to the post office yesterday to ship a smudge stick I made last week for a friend and also to send another friend (Hi Pam!) her birthday present that I've had made for three years. Procrastiwhat?
While I was out enjoying the cool morning, I took a walk through the co-op and picked up some Roastaroma tea from Celestial Seasonings. Sometimes I would really love a cup of coffee in the evening but I know it would keep me up. Roastaroma will be a nice alternative. I also picked up some almonds and dried mango slices for snacking. I love the mangos but probably won't choose them next time. I didn't read the label to see that they are completely covered in sugar. They are yummy, though, I have to say.
I also went to the used bookstore. I picked up two books that I am enjoying very much. The first one is Magical Spells for Your Home by Anne-Marie Gallagher and the second is Holistic Home by Joanna Trevelyan.
Both are filled with simple ways of making your home a sacred, nurturing space and they're both filled with beautiful images.
Today is the day we put out the weekly update and I have a few new coupons to make and a new contest so that will keep me busy for a while this morning. Then I hope to play a little.
Life is good.
