Quincy loves the broom!

I am setting up my "magical" space to do some energy work tomorrow with two of my good friends and as I turned around this is what I saw. Quincy is definitely attached to my broom. Lol! Notice Emma on the other end. :) It's funny, the cats are so relaxed in my space. They seem to act differently, either relaxed or full of playful energy. Do you ever notice how your pets act in sacred space? :)

Hope you're all having a relaxing weekend. I'm going to try to play catch-up with everyone's blogs tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I apologize for not visiting you all as often as I had wanted to recently. Life has been crazy with packing, getting over sicknesses, etc. Once the holidays are over and things have slowed down I will promise to get back to my regular blogging and visits! In the meantime, I am so thankful I have met everyone here in blog land! I'm also thankful for all that I have in my life. Despite the obstacles I've had to overcome recently, I am always focusing on what I'm thankful for....and what I do have in my life. I think that's very important.

Eat well, visit with your family and be thankful always!

Call me the traveling gypsy....cleansing your new home.

And this is how this gypsy!

Do you wanna know why I call myself this? Well, I am moving again! It seems I move every year. Must be the Gemini in me. Lol! Okay, really it's not what you think. I'm still in the same condo complex but I am moving to the townhouse across from me! Lol! I mean literally, the garages are across from each other. I am making this change because I decided I am paying too much for rent right now. The condo I am in is the most desired floor plan and, well, all around the most desired condo in the complex. I LOVE the complex I am in...not sure if I've mentioned that. It's gated, so I feel safe, it's quiet and trees everywhere! So, this is going to sound funny but I am now moving into a three story townhouse which is bigger than the condo I am in but much cheaper. I just won't have as many windows and not as much of a view. That's okay though, I would rather start saving more money for a house in the future. :) I know Quincy and Emma will have tons of room to run now. Two sets of stairs...the first floor is the garage, second is the living room, dining room and kitchen and one bathroom, and the third are the two bedrooms and two more bathrooms.

Here's the thing and the reason I haven't been posting as much lately, besides the cat fiasco. :( I'm cleaning and getting ready for the short move across the street because it all has to happen mid December. Terrible time, I know but they couldn't hold this townhouse longer than 30 days for had to have it. Talk about stressful. A move in between the holidays. Nice going, Michelle. Oh well, I can think of worst things, right?

Also, this time around I'd like to cleanse my new home. I didn't cleanse the place I'm in now but nothing really negative has happened. So, what I'd like to know is how would you cleanse a new home/space? I'm thinking about it now and would really love some feedback on this!

Anyhow, hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! Kitties are still doing fine. Mocha is hanging in there, a bit cranky but eating and drinking a lot. I'm not sure if she will be the same kitty after this but she is still with me and, for that, I am happy.

We are on the mend!

Thank you all...from the bottom of my heart...for all the well wishes. We are healing, slowly but surely. Actually, Quincy and Emma are totally fine. Mocha is healing slowly but as of the last couple of days she has had a voracious appetite and is drinking a lot. I realize that's probably the steroid. Still, I did NOT like the side effects that came with that. She seems a little more normal these days, alert, hungry and her eyes are bright. :)

Isn't it amazing how powerful intentions are? Thanks to everyone and their healing thoughts....a little intention on my end...a banishing spell and some Green Aventurine (thanks for the suggestion Hibiscus Moon), I am going to believe everyone is going to heal fine. I will continue my intentions though.

In the meantime, I am going to snuggle here with the kitties and work on making a few of these for the cold season ahead. :)

Thank you again, ever so much!! I will be back into the swing of things (and visiting you all!).

Brightest blessings....

Michelle and the kitties :)

Emotional Time....

So sorry I've been away for a few days. I've been struggling with three sick cats at home. It started with Emma and a few days later Quincy and Mocha caught it. All three were vomiting and had terrible diarrhea. First I had to bring Emma in to get antibiotics and fluids...then three days later both Quincy and Mocha went in. They gave Quincy antibiotics and Mocha (my oldest - the brown one you see on the right) got a steroid shot because she had previous IBD issues. We had done a full panel check on her five months ago but found nothing out of the ordinary that would cause her IBD. Well,after that shot, she turned into a total zombie and she stopped eating for a day and a half and was very lethargic. I just finally got her to start eating some white chicken breast tonight which she ate tons of. She's not drinking enough though so I am giving her water in a syringe to keep her hydrated. I called two doctors (since Emma sees a different doctor than Mocha and Quincy) and they agree that perhaps the shot of steroid was a bit too much for Mocha and being a senior at 13 1/2 years was too much for her little body. I am hoping it will start tapering off and she will get back to normal. I just wanted you all to know I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. If you can possibly send some healing thoughts our way we would be ever so thankful! Quincy and Emma have bounced back but Mocha still is lethargic but was definitely more alert today when I came home.

I was at my wit's end last night so being that it is still a waning moon I performed a banishing ritual to rid our household of this sickness.

This picture was taken tonight. We're all just resting comfortably and I'm trying to keep everything calm and peaceful. I had this beautiful Reiki music playing for them and I think it kind of put them all to sleep. Lol!

A Gift from Merlin's Magickal Mistress!

I received a very special package yesterday from the sweetest witch by the sea that I know, Merlin's Magickal Mistress!! A few posts back I talked about my small by growing collection of mermaids. When she saw my post she graciously emailed me and said she wanted to send two of her mermaid ornaments that she had. HOW SWEET IS THAT?!! Anyway, I was so excited when I got them! I loved 'em! I was going to put them in my bathroom that houses most of my mermaids but then I realized they would go much better on my year-round pink Christmas tree. Seriously, they matched the Christmas tree like they came with the tree! See for yourself! Oh and if you haven't checked out her blog...swing on over. She is funny, sassy and full of fire, that witch!

Oh and Mr. Quincy decided to hang out with me while I was putting the mermaids in the tree...I saw how the sunlight was hitting him and had to take pictures. :)

Thank you again, Judith!! They add a bit more whimsy to my tree. :)

A new stone for me...the Sun Stone

I recently received some beautiful Sun Stones in the mail and am just learning more about them. I can't wait to connect with them once they are cleansed. They're even a native of my state. :) Jennifer Warr is a crystal reader and here she describes her experience with the beautiful stones. Enjoy!

I Won a Giveaway!

Yay!!! The last Halloween Giveaway from Marzel over at The Play of Light and Shadow was bestowed upon me...yes, ME! I am so excited. Do you know why? Well, because I get all these adorable goodies but because the witches hat will be my very first witches hat! :) I know, pathetic I don't have one already. Lol!

If you haven't seen Marzel's blog you have been missing out. She is such a talented artist, writer, person and oh I could go on. She is also a very good personal friend of mine, although we live in different states. :) Thank you, Marzel!!!!

Also, in case you weren't aware, we also share another blog called The Play of Light and Shadows where we share our ghost hunting experiences! Swing on by if you get a chance and checkout our haunting pictures! :)

I can't tell you the exhilarating feeling I get when riding, let alone the views I stumble upon in the beautiful mountains and valleys here in Oregon. I went riding with three of my girlfriends this past weekend and for the first time we let the horses go! Let them run as fast as they could and oh my gosh, I thought I was in Heaven! I rose from the saddle, leaned forward and we took off, the wind blowing through us, the sound of Romeo's labored yet excited breathing as he raced as fast as he could past the other gals. LOL! I almost couldn't stop him though. Nonetheless, it was my first and will not be my last to ride like we were one with the wind. These are the views we usually come upon. Breathtaking, isn't it? :) It's times like this I feel closest to Mother Nature.

Hope you're all having a wonderful week!
