What a week...

It has been a long couple of days. Really, really excruciating long. I think that my child was suffering from a well known children's disease called post-Christmas lameness. She was being a whiny little turd that would settle for nothing less than trying to crawl up my butt and never give me a moments peace. All I wanted was time to pack our bags for our pending Seattle trip and to clean the bathroom so my friend who is house/dog sitting has a clean pot to sit on. =) According to Jae though, that was FAR too much to ask! *sigh*

Christmas went really well... Jae, like most three year olds, made out like a bandit and I received a beautiful staff that my parents made for me. It's a lovely piece of willow about two inches shorter than I am (and I stand at 65") with a leather bound hand hold and medicine pouch. One of the most amazing parts though, is the hollowed out knot just above the hand hold that my parents put a beautiful piece of quartz crystal point into. Really, it's so amazing!

She practically sings! She hasn't told me her name yet... but we'll get there. =)

Right now, I'm watching an Australia show called Dance Academy. It's actually really cute, and I will likely veg out on the couch and watch a few more episodes until I decide I'm truly tired and will be able to sleep without tossing and turning.

Blessings to everyone and I'll write again soon.


  1. That's a beautiful gift. :)

    I've never heard of naming your staff though.

  2. Wow, that's one of the prettiest staves I've ever seen! I know how it is when you have a little one like that- they seem to instinctively KNOW when you need a break and won't give it to you! Hug yourself for me and hang in there!! Happy New Year!

  3. What a lovely gift! Many blessings to you and yours! :D
