Loki day 28… Oh Shit, what happened to July?

So… Well… Umm, huh… I seem to have misplaced my month of July, has anyone got a spare? No, alright then…

This month seems to have been munched quite thoroughly by my back injury, the recovery time, starting PT (which is a bitch to motivate myself to do, especially with how much it hurts, but I make myself do it anyways.); and during my moments of being relatively pain-free, cleaning, cooking, and fine-tuning my collection oracle (which was started about a year ago, if I’m not mistaken). I also got some artsy time in via sewing, painting, and crocheting, but in all, I sit here feeling like I dropped the ball on honoring Papa Flamehair this month. not having done anything huge, elaborate, or flammable/glittery/etc. for Him…

I just couldn’t find the inner motivation to really push the envelope in honoring Him, and aside from praying to Him sporadically, offering a sip of my coffee, adding more details to my burning rose artwork, adding and defining the pieces of my Lost Things Oracle to better communicate with Him or other Beings in my life, or focusing my attention on His influence when the pain of my stretches is too much, this month has fell quiet.

Especially on the blogging front of things.

Feeling as though I have dropped the ball is only increased as this month has cast a spotlight onto my practices, and I saw how much stuff I had started accumulating again, without a deeper understanding of what it was meant to signify for me.

And by stuff, I mean literal stuff around my house.

I felt as though the corners, closets, and our extra bedroom had become the Grotto from The Little Mermaid movie, all without us realizing it. So we have been steadily chipping away at saved stuff, old clothing, toys (my GODS, so many toys…), and craft supplies in an attempt to shave down our unneeded belongings into a manageable amount. My chance to take back old toys for “safe-keeping” or miniatures to add to my Oracle has no bearing on my motivations on this matter…

So yea… This month has sort of been devoured by a bunch of stuff. But I am back now. More posts to come!

About darkbookworm13

I am a proud mom to 3 beautiful girls, and married to the love of my life. I have been a practicing Witch since the summer of 2003, having studied many different paths over the years, ranging from Wicca, Goddess only worship (courtesy of StarHawk), Eclectic Paganism, Kitchen Witchcraft, Norse Paganism, Hearthcraft, Spiritual Luciferianism, and more. I have worked with the Futhark runes, Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle deck, Tarot decks, and I am currently working on a customized divination set based on collected items. I like to work with herbs, and gardening. I crochet and make handicrafts like wood burned items, paintings, drawings, toys, and hand sewn doll clothes for my daughters. The only title I call my spiritual path is Witchcraft, as using magic entwines deeply with the worship of the Gods who call me Their own. My Patron deity is Loki, who has chosen me as His kin.
