Busy Little Bee? That's me!

Farm labor five days a week keeps me strong, healthy, (unfortunately) very tan, active and out of the house, or most any other man-made structure (except the barns, of course). However, it also keeps me busy, tired and hot to the point where it's all I can do to go straight home, don my swimsuit and trek over to Sis's apartment for an hour-long dip. After that, I'm pretty much useless to the world. I consider myself lucky on those nights if I had the foresight earlier in the week to make rice to nuke with veggies for dinner. I just don't have the kind of energy Auntie has when it comes to preparing and cooking for myself. The easier the better, but Goddess forbid I ever go back to grabbing frozen pizzas or other preservative-filled, frozen entrees! I don't want that anymore; I'd rather go to bed without dinner. It's been so hot and I've been so exhausted, I have gone to bed without dinner a few times already this summer. (It helped that I wasn't hungry.)
Imagine my surprise when I went to the beauty salon with Auntie and Sis for haircuts, agreed to collaborate and co-run a workshop on Working with Faeries in Magickal Practice and go to a birthday party the other day! Oh, right, I'm also packing to move in two weeks and was present for the birth of our newest little cria (baby alpaca) on the farm. We're getting a truck to start moving some of our immense amount of stuff tomorrow, then again next Monday.
So, why am I sitting here typing up this update for you friends, when I really should be packing? Well, I haven't been online for about a week, now (and this sweltering heat is keeping me low to the ground and sitting directly on the cool tile of my bedroom floor.) Being a witch blog, I shun myself for not posting a lick about Lammas, or the wondrous Full Moon we had last week, or the random scents and gifts the Fae have bestowed upon me, seeing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince with my father, etc., etc., et al. I'm hoping things will be worlds easier once the move has transpired and I will have only work in the cooler, Autumn air to contend with my Pagan practise. We shall see.
I hope everyone had a marvelous Lammas, full of delicious harvest treats and happy, contented hearts! Remember, the Almanac asks of us tomorrow: " Carry Colored Glass." Goddess knows why, but try it and let me know the effects. The only colored glass I have that I could carry I fear would shatter and cut me. I shall have to gather some on the beach once the tourists have departed, I suppose, so I am not caught without next time.
Merry Meet and Merry Part, my patient readers!


  1. wow you have been busy, though it sounds like you have been productive. what do you do on the farm, I am pretty much a city girl but I have always been interested in farm work. Anyways, I thought that the latest Harry Potter movie was the best so far. Well I hope you get some free time soon

  2. Yeah, productive is definitely a good word for it all! *^_^* I am the full-time animal caretaker/barn manager, and it's the best job I have ever had (in the decade that I have been in the workforce)! I recommend farm labor to anyone who wants to try it, even if it's just volunteering at a local farm stand, then getting into the dirt work. It is all worth it.
    As for the HP film, I thoroughly enjoyed it and feel that the scenes they chose for the film were well done. However, like other fans I have heard donning their critic caps, I have to agree that they left a good chunk of stuff out. My dad was let down, and he usually adores the HP movies...even though he's never read/listened to the books.
    Thanks for the well wishing, and I hope to catch up on all of my blog subscriptions soon, and see what everyone else has been up to! Thanks for stopping by! *^_^*
