Athame or Wand?

I've been going back and forth between whether I want to purchase an Athame or make a wand to add to my supplies. I'm thinking of gathering a large limb off of my grandmother's large old oak tree and just making my own wand. I think doing this off of such an old tree will aid in the energy of the wand. Some people prefer to purchase a wand but I feel as though it would be more spiritual and powerful to make a wand. I'm not very good at wood crafting or "whittling" as it's known where I'm from but, I think if I take my time, I can make a perfect wand, for me. I'll definitely update on my progress. I'm not sure when I will be starting on this.

Alley's Reception

Today was Alley's wedding reception. It was a very pretty reception. I took a lot of pictures for her. There was a ton of food. Except for a slight problem in finding shoes to wear today, and the ones that I finally found gave me a blister on my heel, today was a very good day. I truly hope the best for Alley & Felix. Congratulations!

Autumn Equinox

I've been reading more into Wicca and Paganism here lately. It seems to be a path on which I must go down. Whether I stay there or not, is still a mystery.

But, today.. September 23, 2011 is the Autumn Equinox otherwise known as Mabon. For those of you who don't know anything about it. The Autum Equinox is when day and night are equal. Often celebrated by a gathering of fruits, vegetables and herbs as well as with rituals paying respects to the God and Goddess. Personally, I'm only lighting a couple of candles throughout the day as I do have to go to work in just a little while. Then I'll light some incense and complete my celebration after I get home from work.

As of right now, I'm studying this religious path and for now, it feels right. But, as with all things, it could change. I'm just still trying to find my purpose.

I think I'm boring..

Right? I've noticed that I never have anything to say on this blog. I've tried to come up with plenty of reasons to make this blog interesting. Crafts, weight loss.. etc. Nothing has seemed to work. But, in the spirit of my last blog, I have lost down to 133 lbs. I'm still going as strong as my will will let me. One day, I will be successful. One day.
