New Beginnings


I've survived the last few days of snow and ice, and am now watching as the rain turns the lovely snow into lakes of water along the roadways and yards. I'm hoping we get a spot more snow for Yule and Christmas, but I'm not doing a snow dance or making any wishes. Those things tend to backfire, and produce much more of the white stuff than we need!

On an exciting note, I am in the process of buying a small metaphysical shop (not the above shop - I just enjoyed their pic, and attached the link if you are curious.) The shop that I am purchasing, is the little store where I buy most of my supplies (candles, smudge, books, meditation cds, crystals, etc.) The two ladies that own it want more time to do their own projects and don't have much energy to invest in it. My sister in law (a groovy Buddhist and Tarot reader extraordinare) asked if I wanted a partner, and now we are shooting for February 1st as a takeover day. I am SO thrilled about this new project!

I will definitely do a nice giveaway when I'm an official store owner!

There is still so much to be done with family coming for Christmas, trying to get my painting finished in my new home, then moving, and buying the store. Not to mention, keeping my sanity during the next few months. Luckily, I have wonderful blogs to read that make me smile, and take me out of my own head for a while! Do forgive me if I'm a little late posting comments on your blogs - I'm in a rather constant state of "catch-up" right now.

Looking forward to Yule this Sunday/Monday and to hearing how you are all going to celebrate. I've got some baking to do, and a Reiki share on Sunday, with a ritual planned for that night.

Blessings upon blessings to all of you, and a very happy Yule!

Oh my gosh, Rue!!! I'm so excited for you! Your very own shop. I'm so jealous....that's my dream. Well my dream was to have my own soap shop. I'm actually going to try to get back into my soap making...bath bombs and hand creams as well after the New Year.

I may be visiting a friend in British Columbia next Spring...if you have your store I may have to come find it! :)

Oh Rue...I couldn't be happier for you...you are just the right "type" to run a shop like that!
And what a wonderful time of the year to begin this new venture...the start of new stirrings in the Mother Earth!
I wish you a very happy Yuletide and every success in your new shop!
You must share some photo's with us!
I'll give The Odin Tree a special hug for you!

Congrats on the store. That sounds like so much fun. Are you going to actually run the store or work another job at the same time.

I sometimes wish I could do something of teh sort, but i love working with children adn being able to spend summers home with my children.

Have fun on your new life journey. It sounds like the new year is already blessed for you.
