Happy Summer Solstice and a Gift from a Lovely Friend :)

Happy Summer Solstice everyone! I am finding it hard to believe it's summer though. As of yesterday we still had rain and cool weather. I am trying so hard to respect what Mother Nature is bringing us here in the Northwest but I am pleading for more sun from Her! Today we had a glimpse of brighter weather and Quincy and Emma decided to sun bathe with what little sun we had. :)

Uh oh, he discovered the fresh catnip.

Also, I received a beautiful gift from Jen over at Rue and Hyssop. Jen sent me this book when she discovered my new found interest, crystals! It was so thoughtful of her to send this book to me and I am getting so much out of it. Thank you, Jen!! I am going to be making some bath salts to put in a jar and infuse with oils and a crystal to empower it. I will post about it once I'm finished!

She included this beautiful card!

Inside was a wealth of information on crystals and uses and it was simple to read and lots of colorful pictures. My kind of book, lol!

Thank you again, Jen!! I will cherish this book and it will stay put in my magickal library. :)
