Moving the blog

I've moved the iPod Witch website over to WordPress and now I'm moving this blog too. All new posts will be there. I was able to import everything over so all the posts and comments are intact. If you want to continue to follow my blog, please go here.

This site will stay up until November 1, 2010 and then I will be deleting it.

Gem show!

I forgot to mention the gem show in Martinsville that I went to in May. This is the same gem show I go to every year. I didn't have much money this time, so I only got a few stones. I spent a total of $9 but I got some really pretty stones.

I bought Lepidolite (which I didn't have before), blue lace agate, unakite, quartz, citrine, carnelian, and more. I got 13 stones in all. Some I bought individually and 5 were from a 5/1.00 pile. They are all pretty. I hope to get a picture of them up on the iPodWitch website soon!

July already?

Yes, it's July already and I haven't posted anything here in quite a while. I've been behind on basically everything! :p I have been working on losing a few pounds though. I've been walking everyday since May. I've only missed two days. The last two. I think I'm taking the weekend off and will get back to it on Monday. I have lost some weight and I have enjoyed my walks immensely. I actually planned to get back to the walks today but it's raining. :p

The rain is great though. All my plants need it so badly. I haven't planted any seeds this year. I've only planted to Juniper ground cover bushes. (they are PRETTY!) and I bought a Lemon Verbena and two little succulents. I wanted to have a nice garden this summer, but it has been waaaaay too hot to do anything in the yard!

If you follow the podcast, you'll see that I have an episode this month. I plan to get back on schedule and get those podcasts out more often. I also plan to keep up with my e-mails and return them in a timely fashion! :)

Snow, snow, magical snow! :)

I LOVE snow. Where I live (Southern central Virginia) we are lucky to get an inch or two of snow once a winter. Today at 1:45 p.m. it started snowing here. It hasn't stopped and it isn't supposed to stop until tomorrow! :D :D :D Yes, I'm happy! I will be going out to drawn pentagrams and pentacles in the snow tomorrow along with building a snowman! I also will be taking in some more snow so I can have some snow water for later use. I love snow. They said we might get up to 16 inches!!!!!

I'll be posting pictures up at the iPod Witch website. in case you didn't know. If you are wondering where I've been and why I haven't been posting here, I've been mostly at the site. I hope to get back here and keep up my Witchy journal. I had thought of moving it to the site, but I like having it here. :)

Sunday pictures and fun

Yesterday I decided it was time to clean off my roof. I raked off the branches and leaves and then moved down to the gutters. The gutters were full of great compost! :D The leaves and branches, and nut shells (pecan tree) fall into the gutter and pile up. It rains and then the stuff in my gutters turns into compost. lol I got quite a few pounds of nice rich compost from my gutters and put them in a container. (I talk about this in Episode 28 of the iPod Witch)

I mowed some lawn yesterday and went out and looked at my new plants. I planted potatoes, pumpkins, sunflowers, assorted flowers, and checked on my Bee Balm. Everything is looking so nice! I have pictures of the pumpkin plants at my flickr:

With the pumpkin picture, I also have one view from my roof, and some Crow pictures from the park. I also have a cute little squirrel and a picture of my most important piece of jewelry! Enjoy. :)

Daffs in bloom and snow! :O

Yes, I said Daffs and snow. :) It snowed here (six inches worth!!!) and then the next week we had temps in the 70's and 80's. lol So I have some pictures of the snow and some pictures of the Daffs around the birdbath in bloom. You can see them at my Flickr photostream. :)

Pictures here... follow me!
