Plans: prep for RheinWood Yule, errands, party @ Mouse’s
A.M. Prayer: Thursday, we pray to Donar/Thor, and lighting a red candle:
Donar/Thor, thunder forth in our lives. When we would hold back, let us advance. When we would be weak, help us be strong. When we would shun life’s pleasures, sharpen our appetites for that which is lusty and good. Help us grow from strength, and teach us, elder brother, how to throw our own Hammer, and slay the giants who appose our will. HAIL DONAR/THOR!!
Born of Fire, born of ice,
Life is lived at such a price.
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
A.M. Rune: Two Runes:
Sowulo (Irreversible): The Sun, Sonne/Sunna, a lightening bolt, victory, success, spiritual guidance, and leadership.
Teiwaz (U): The God Ziu/Tyr, one handed god of war and honor, justice, victory in conflict, the spiritual warrior, self-sacrifice, mental and emotional order.
Outcome: OH HEL YEAH!
OMGs! The first major winter storm has hit Oz; still not a lot of snow but it sure is nice!
I went over to visit my J’sW friends down the street. I always enjoy our conversations!
Grocery for bread while Audie tended to the home fires.
While out I picked up Audie’s BIG Yule gift from Belden’s: I also picked up another small gift for a nephew and mead for RheinWood’s Yule coming up this weekend.
I’m no good at keeping presents quiet so once home and mostly unloaded I asked her if she wanted her BIG Yule present. At first she played like she wanted to wait but SHE knew I couldn’t wait and I didn’t WANT HER to wait nor did she really want to wait. I quickly hid it under the tree and wished her a Happy Yule: pointed under the tree. I got her a diamond/sapphire necklace, earrings and a diamond/sapphire ring. I think I’m safe to say she appreciated it. Oh, but according to Audie, she is “OVER THE MOON!” Let’s recap her Yule gifts: silky-soft jammies, slippers (what she calls “swip-swips”), gloves and a baby-blue beret, oh, AND the aforementioned jewelry. Doesn’t suck for being unemployed. I told her, just wait until I find REAL work: she’ll get the full effect of my generosity with gifts.
Holiday Party at Mouse’s house went fine: LOTS-o-FOOD...and well…karaoke!
I’m not sure if it’s still snowing or it’s only drifting…but there’s a goodly amount of the white stuff!
P.M. Prayer: Ostara/Idun:
Ostara/Idun, keeper of the golden apples of youth, keep us young inside. When we are starving for laughter, hungry for the lightness that comes with having few years on our shoulders, slip us one of those gleaming fruits that we may see the world through youthful eyes. Let springtime be in our steps, love in our hearts and a song on our lips. Change us to the core! Fill us with optimism and dreams for the future. HAIL OSTARA/IDUN!!!
P.M. Rune: none
