Happy Valentines Day and a few superstitions you may not be aware of. :)

Just drying a few rose petals for future spells. I hope you're having a wonderful Valentines Day and hope that you celebrate it everyday and not just today!   

In the meantime, have you heard a few of these superstitions?  

Count horses, not sheep:
There's more than one way to count a horse.  According to superstition, if you count 60 white horses and one white mule, you will marry the first person with whom you shake hands.  Similarly, if you counter 100 white horses during a leap year, the same will hold true!

Mirrors bring about Prince Charming:
Sleep with a mirror under your pillow to dream of your future lover.

You can predict your lover's initials:
Take 26 pieces of paper and write a letter of the alphabet on each.  Then place each paper face down in a bowl of water and put it under your bed.  In the morning, the pieces that are face up in the water are the initials of your future spouse.

And you know you're a crazy cat witch when you stay up until 1 a.m. creating a cat Valentines Day card to send to fellow cat lovers on Facebook.  By the way, if you all don't know yet, my cats have their own Facebook page!   Look for My Life as Quincy and enter the world of crazy animal lovers.

Snow Water

It's been snowing for days and days and days.  Well, okay, just three so far.  I feel like I'm going crazy and getting cabin fever.    I eat, then craft, then watch a movie, then dote on cats...then start the whole process over again.   Then an idea hit me!    Why not go out and gather some snow to make sacred snow water for spells!    Hmmmm...perhaps a spell to "melt away" something in your life?   I can think of a few things to melt away, like FAT.    So, I've melted some so far and tagged it as such.   :)

Here's to warmer weather tomorrow (oh please, oh please) and thanking the Universe for this little blessing.
