Merry Lammas! ( Watch out, they spit! )
Merry Lammas to all my Pagan and Witchy folk! I hope that your harvests, in whatever they may be, are bountiful!
Today has been unexpected. I did not manage to get to sleep until 8 am...I went to bed at 4 am and Jack's mind and body were having an argument over whether or not to get up, so he flopped and flipped and generally wallered around like a pig in a mud pit, waking me up every few minutes.
Finally at 8 he got up and I crashed until 2:30 when he and Alex woke me up. He was in a grumbly mood about me sleeping during the day, but after I got up I informed him that at 2am I was sweeping and mopping floors while he slept. He left me alone after that lol.
We grilled out burgers and hot dogs for dinner, and right as we sat down to eat, my Dad and Mike show up. They had been down at Wakulla Beach catching Fiddler Crabs and decided to drop in on their way home. Dad then asked if Alex could go home with him, and I said " Sure!" and not long after they left. Bonus!
Jack and I finished eating and watching a movie, and then we sat and talked for a bit. I am currently looking for a job, and it is tough going. A lot of things have to fall in to place for it to work, because we are strapped for money there is not even any gas money for me to drive around and look, and there is only so much that you can do online. Not to mention until Alex gets into school, there is the matter of a sitter, or finding a night shift job so when he gets off work he can take care of her. Anywho, we finished talking and I put Mad Max in the DVD player for him and got back on here to blog before I go and take a shower.
If the energy hits me, as it usually does late at night, I might tackle some of Alex's room tonight. We shall see.
I ended up having 93 pics on my digi cam, but I got rid of some I did not like, and ended up with 74 lol. Took me the better part of two hours to crop and caption them...I learned a few things about the program I was using to edit pics last night so that was cool. I may upload some to my FB page later, for now only Rayden and Maia got to see them lol. After all that work I was just too tired to upload them to FB..with my slow dial up and all.
At some point I need to do something simple for Lammas, I already did a bread offering, but I might do something else. It is not often I get the chance to do anything elaborate due to Alex.
I started reading a new book today, called: "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" by Ron Hansen. Apparently there is a movie about it, or will be, with Brad Pitt, but I do not recall hearing anything about it. I am only 21 pages into it, but I learned that Jesse James was into astral travel, potions and sorcery, as they called it. He was forever mixing potions for ailments and other effects. I also learned he was crazier than a bed bug lol. I had a brief talk about it with my father, and he confirmed it for me as well.
*Random thought: I think I will paint my nails tonight...I have not done that in a while...*
Mom called me today and told me that she bought a lot of things for Alex to start school with. She bought her the sleep mat for nap time, her backpack, a lunchbox, folders, pencils, markers, and something else I can not remember right now. She is also going to buy her a few outfits next week if she can. That was nice of her. They can be evil and stubborn and single minded at times, but if there is a need they do what they can to help.
I have a couple of new followers and I just wanted to say thank you and I will do my best to provide some entertaining reading!
Time for me to hit the showers and get it out of the way..I still have more blog reading to do!
