A Witch’s Beginning: Part 2

Last week, I talked about my childhood background in Christianity and how I ended up drifting away from that, because there wasn’t much of an anchor there to begin with. Something I’ve learned through my years of searching is that spiritual connection, regardless of your religious belief, needs to be cultivated. I was never taught … Continue reading A Witch’s Beginning: Part 2


On Wednesday, I went to a Galentine's party with a girl I met at church, Alex. I forced myself to go because I'm trying very hard to meet new people and step out of my comfort zone. It was definitely out of my comfort zone. That's not to say it wasn't fun, it just wasn't … Continue reading Overwhelmed

Foodie Friday: Cheesy Lasagna with Pork and Beef

Lasagna is one of my favorite dinners, because it's actually relatively easy to make and I almost always have everything on hand. It can be assembled ahead of time and then popped in the oven when you get home from work/school/dancing naked in the woods in heathen ritual... whatever. It's also cheesy and gooey and … Continue reading Foodie Friday: Cheesy Lasagna with Pork and Beef

A Witch’s Beginnings, part 1

In the past, I’ve spoken vaguely about how I came to Wicca, which shifted to Paganism, which has turned into agnostic witchcraft, which continues to shift as I continue to search. But, I haven’t spoken about where I was prior to that, or really delved into the meat of the journey which brought me to … Continue reading A Witch’s Beginnings, part 1

Hot Coffee, Breakfast Burritos And A Little Compassion

An important reminder to be grateful for what we have and to extend our love and compassion to those who need it. ❤

Hestia's Servant


Sometimes things don’t work out quite the way you would like.

As you know, I’ve had a lot of issues with work lately, and, for those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been spending in inordinate amount of time and money trying to figure out what is wrong with one of my wee dogs.  My finances are fairly depleted, but, even though I’m short of money, I am still better off than many.

Today is cold and rainy and I really didn’t want to leave the house.  However, I had an early morning doctor’s appointment a few towns over and, since I had some time, I figured I might as well get a few errands done while I was out and about.  As I was pulling into the Empire of Walmart (I know…don’t judge me), on the corner stood a gentleman with a tarp and a sign…

Making Friends (and other less exciting stuff)

I'm really glad I started attending church. I've met so many nice people--everyone is always coming up and introducing themselves to me. I've even made a new friend! A lovely girl I'll be referring to as "Alex" on this blog (remember, I don't use people's real names). Alex invited me to a "Galentine's Day" party … Continue reading Making Friends (and other less exciting stuff)

Foodie Friday: Simple Marinara Sauce

Because trying to write reviews/raves about something every week is time-consuming and difficult (and I'm kind of sick of giving things publicity without getting paid), I've decided to nix the Friday Faves. Maybe I'll do a "monthly faves" kind of thing where I pick two or three things I'm just really into and do that … Continue reading Foodie Friday: Simple Marinara Sauce
