This has been a quieter week than last, thankfully, though I’ve been on vacation, so I’ve been plowing through a lot of larger tasks at home, including making my pantry usable again, doing the bulk of an update on my library organisation, and generally arranging daily stuff in my life better.
Lots of reading! I met my mother at the Worchester Art Museum on Friday (which is, I think, the first time I’ve been there, and it’s an excellent smaller art museum, quite a manageable size to wander around.)
Yesterday, I wrote up my current Daily and Weekly Offering practice, so that there’s actually a reference to point to.
The coming week
New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day are the last of the ‘let’s start this year on a good foot’ rituals.
Tuesday: The last major part of my cleaning binge is giving all my floors a good going over – that will be on Tuesday for New Year’s Eve Day. I’m also planning to get a chunk of my financial records in order, so I can start the new financial year better organised.
I’m also planning to post about a few witchy and magical books I’ve read this year (not everything I’ve read, but a few highlights) as one of my goals in 2020 is to share a few more resources like this.
Wednesday: I subscribe to ‘do a bit of everything you want in your life this year’ as a theory, so I am planning to:
- Cook (ok, that’s making lunch for work for the rest of the week.)
- Make chicken stock from the chicken I roasted for solstice that has been in the freezer. (I’ll start it in the slow cooker Tuesday night.)
- Knit and spin (see below)
- Chat with friends
- Have something tasty to eat and drink
- Depending on the weather, I may walk up to a local coffee house with a book for a bit of being around people.
Knitting and spinning: These have been going along very nicely. I finished spinning the chunk of roving I was working with today, and will ply it once tomorrow, and again on New Year’s Day, for four ply (strands), three sets of twists, which feels right. We’ll be using this for ritual for our Imbolc ritual, and I’m excited to see how it turns out. (There will be some photos.)
