It is some kind of nasty where I live right now. Apparently, the wind got so bad last night while we were under a tornado watch, that it knocked out the power and broke the umbrella we had on the porch.
Draco, of course, is still out-of-town and I have had some very spiritual things happening to me lately that I’m still trying to sort out and I’m not quite ready to talk about. Until I get it sorted, the Card of the Day feature is on hold.
I have made many decisions lately, both personal and for my family.
I mentioned us moving before, and we are still going to, but things have changed a smidge. The apartment that Mini-Me is moving out of, we won’t be taking. After giving it a good-looking over, we decided that it was just too small for us and we would like something bigger. A large part of that is to do with our business, which I have also made some decisions about.
I have decided to close the business for the moment. Honestly, I haven’t been doing that much business and it’s just not quite what I really want. I will be opening another business at a later date, but for now, I need to get us moved and possibly find a part-time job. Once all of that is settled, I am going to take stock of what I have, what I want to do and I’ll be adding some stuff and then I’ll go from there. We’ll see what happens.
Now that word is starting to circulate about our move, people are coming around and trying to help. L is taking it better than I thought she would, and her family now understands why. It’s like I told L’s mom yesterday (which is where I spent practically my entire day), we’re not leaving because there’s a problem or we’re not happy. The simple truth is that we haven’t had our own place in about 3 years now, and it’s beyond time for us to get out on our own and do it again. I know it will be hard and a little more expensive, but the things worth having in life are never easy.
Draco and I need our own space to grow and explore our relationship now that we have an empty nest, we need space to practice our religion without the worry of how it will affect anyone but us. We need to be able to laugh, love and fight loudly if that’s what we need or want to do. Those are things that it’s hard to do when you live with other people.
Our time here has been wonderful for the most part, and we still love L and Little Diva to pieces and they will continue to be a big part of our lives going into the future. We still plan to get together regularly, include them in family things and have them play a big part in our lives. I’m grateful for everything the God and Goddess has given us in our relationship with L and I don’t plan to lose it.
Our next hurdle will be this coming month. We have a lot of money to put together in just a few weeks all while we try to sort the issue of after living with other people for 3 years, we don’t really have much in the way of household stuff of our own.
I’m tickled though, about a set of dishes L gave me yesterday from her stash at her Mom’s house. The plates and bowls have herbs on them and they are awesome!
Well, that’s it for now. Maybe later today I can pull one of the plates out of the box and take a picture to include.
Today’s card caught me off guard, considering everything that’s been happening. There have been a few things going on behind the scenes here, that I have intentionally not mentioned. Today was the day I had planned to mention some of it anyway, and I get this card:
The Six of Cups. It means joy. Usually revisiting something that we know made us happy. This plays right into what has been going on.

Everyone knows that Draco and I have enjoyed our time with L and Little Diva. L is a wonderful friend, and as far as living with other people go, I couldn’t have asked for a much better situation than what we’ve had here. It’s absolutely been a far cry from what we went through staying with my parents during my Mom’s illness where I felt that I was a constant target for someone.
Time moves on, though, and Draco and I are becoming an “older couple”. Life is forcing me to accept the onset of my Crone phase, and I’m finally beginning to do it gracefully, but as time moves on, situations, needs and wants change.
Draco and I have not had our own place in something like 3 years now.
We gave up our last place to go stay with my family to try to help out when Mom had her heart attack and then she got sick and we haven’t had our own place since.
It’s time. Really it’s beyond time.
It just so happens that Mini-Me is looking to change her living situation as well. She’s had a small, 1 bedroom apartment, fully furnished, right down the road from us, and she’s looking at something closer to the heart of town, and closer to her friends. She’s been trying to move for about a month now and hasn’t been able to pull together the resources to do it. She even has a roommate lined up to help her with the bills. I’m happy for her, but it got me to thinking about the apartment she would be leaving behind.
It is rather small, but Draco is gone most of the week and during that time, it’s just Dutchess and I. My body has moved into the Crone phase ahead of the rest of me, and it’s harder for me to do extensive housework than it used to be. I don’t want a lot that I have to clean.
Also, I’m becoming something of a minimalist. I would rather be surrounded by the things that I love, that bring me joy and make me smile, than to have a ton of stuff I don’t care about.
Add to that, I’ve been having some odd dreams about a cottage-type setting. It was small, cozy, rustic…and honestly, I think with some TLC and the right witch’s decorative hand, that little apartment could be awfully close to what I’ve been dreaming.
I feel that the Goddess and God have spoken to me on this and that this is the right direction to move in, or to at least try.
Because of Mini-Me’s financial situation, it may be a little bit tricky, but we intend to try.
Our obligations to L hold us here through the end of the month, but after that, we will be able to do whatever we want to do. We will be focusing the next few weeks on helping Mini-Me prepare for the move as well as trying to prepare ourselves.
I have to say that although it will be an adjustment to be on our own again after all this time, and I will miss L and Little Diva terribly, I am excited and looking forward to this next Phase in life. I will try to be around as much as possible and keep the updates flowing. Wish us luck!
