Everyone says events in life that don't work out the way we plan are bumps in the road. Well, I feel like I live on a cobblestone road. A new bump consists of me loosing my daycare job. I was told it was because of cutbacks but in reality it was because I do not share in the religious beliefs of the center where I worked. I was a good teacher and ignorance cost me happiness and a paycheck. I enjoyed my job....
Balance can be regained.

The little kids were at Grandma's and the big kids were at friends' homes so what did I do? Clean and polish my teapot collection. These are just a few....

The little kids making music in the new Winter sun. It was a crisp, clear day yesterday and we played in the front yard. I figured out my new blue tooth speaker and the little kids got into my work toys. That meant music all around....

As I worked in my garage that I have set up as my herbal workshop Eliot and Ben set up a store. Eliot used an old computer keyboard as her register and Ben bought all the toys on the shelf. I have never hrard Ben say "yes sir" before till he was shopping. It was so cute.

This egg is available in my Etsy store for purchase. It comes with an amulet or sachet that contains herbs, stones, and other items that have been charged with positive energy to help one conceive. That could be conceive a child, conceive new ideas, or just nurture fertile growth both literally and figuratively. It would make a great Red Tent decoration or even a gift for a youth at her first menstration or "moon time".

Annika had some psychological testing today. She did really well. I want her to receive all the services she needs to become the best she can be in the future. We will get the results soon.

I had a lot of fun showing off some meditation beads and how to make them in Lyn and Connor's class at church. I only wish I had more time to go into more detail....

I found this Mother / Woman / Goddess figure today at the thrift store. Annika and my friend Tracie helped me look up her worth to sell. Apparently Annika thinks she is priceless. She wants me to keep her. I just may do that..

They cut a limb off of the tree we always climb to harvest mistletoe. We ended up getting some, but not what expected....
Our two garlands turned out OK... They make a nice contrast on the tree. Eliot, Lyn, Ben, and Evan helped. That included eating the popcorn as well as stringing it....

Contact me if you want any. I will list it in my shop but feel free to just message me here through a comment or through facebook if you need it before it is listed on Etsy.
I just love these pictures though. My next to the oldest and my next to the youngest learning from each other....
Not too bad for a first try. A star made from sticks collected from one of my sacred places tied together with jute twine with three cranberries added. I think it needs an anise star too. We may head out tomorrow to collect some mistletoe from a very old oak tree tomorrow. That will make a great addition to the tree also.
It started out as just a regular pile of sticks... I have plenty left over. I need to get the little kids to help make some this weekend when we continue to decorate the tree.

Annika enjoys the after school program she is enrolled in. Not only do I get to be near and keep an eye on her if she needs me she is having a lot of fun. I am trying really hard to leave religion open ended for my children so they can find their own path. Annika enjoys reading her Bible and always finds it interesting that I have read it many times even though I am not a Christian. In her after school setting she gets to explore Bible study and learn new things as well as make friends. And of course she gets to participate in gymnastics once a week there which she is really good at.
