Dim and green this morning. The clouds yesterday evening were absolutely beautiful. Rowan and I stood in the window at the shop watching them us they went from a pink and green over slate grey to red, then faded into the dark.
We had two students yesterday, but only ran one formal class since there was a lot of other stuff going on. I got just enough time at the sewing machine to finish 3 of the 4 panels for the back of the one display case and left one at the not-quite stage. Most of the rest of the day was spent talking with folks and hunting for some of my sewing supplies that are still missing, mostly for my bias tape. Not a lot accomplished compared to the weeks for work leading up to opening! That actually feels pretty good. We had a houseful last night, sitting and talking and sharing some Double Dead Guy from the Rogue Brewery.
There was a flash of bright yellow from the other side of the feeder as a bird flared his wings… He didn’t land so I dunno *what* that was!
We have Wicca 101 this morning, then a class on Fire Magicks at 2pm. My embroidery frame is up again, so I’ll likely be working on that during the tail end of the day.
I’m really liking having the “reading spot” near the books. When there are readers in or friends that’s where we tend to congregate. It’s sunny, or bright when there’s no sun, with comfortable seating. I keep thinking about the peacock chair and wanting to wear my Holy Clothing black dress and do the Morticia Adams bit with my hair! Good profile picture for Facebook? Fat Morticia…. Oughta be pretty funny!
They’ve put up some kind of a tower…looks like a cell tower…right in the middle of the notch that’s always been my Ostara/Mabon marker. Guess I have a new mark? Sam and I have been discussing when it went up. It’s pretty recent, I think, and we’ve been discussing it in the last few weeks.
The shop opens at 10am today! Summer hours – Thursday through Monday, 10am-6pm!
Love & Light,
