Happy Yule (belated)

 

Merry Meet,

Happy Yule for yesterday everyone!
I was too busy enjoying my Yule yesterday to post anything but I did get some photographs.
I hope that everyone enjoyed their Yule/Litha if you are in the Northern Hemisphere.

**Note:
I do not have a fireplace or anywhere sufficient to burn a Yule log, so I decided to start my own tradition of burning “Yule pine cones”.

My Sun candle almost burned out. I burned it the whole day from just before the sunrise.

Yule Decorations

Yule Decorations

Merry Meet,

Since I am on holiday I decided to decorate my home with some Yule decor. Where I live it doesn’t snow. It has gotten colder than usual in the last month, we even had so much sleet the other day that it looked like it had snowed! But it doesn’t snow. And this makes me kind of sad. So yesterday my sister and I sat together and made paper snowflakes. My sister LOVED it so we made many. I have only taken a few pictures to show.

How do you decorate for yule?

Merry Meet,

It is almost Yule here for me in the Southern Hemisphere and I have been doing lots of research and preparations.

My partner is not pagan but he is very supportive of my path and he often joins me for celebrations. This morning he made this picture for my desktop as a surprise for me. Well he added the caption. Unfortunately I don’t know who the original image belongs to! But I thought it was so sweet of him I wanted to share it here on my blog.

Blessed Be

Ornies

Ornies

Merry Meet,

Now that I am on holiday I have time for doing more crafting things. I made these Ornies a few days ago. Each one has a specific purpose, the star is for motivation, the cat is for happiness, and the heart is for healing. They are gifts that I made.

I used Silver RavenWolf’s tutorial. I made the picture click through link to her page so that should work, please let me know if it doesn’t, I’m still quite new to WordPress.

Blessed Be,

Finally Done Studying

Merry Meet!

I am finally done with my studying! I wrote my last exam today. My exams have gone so well this far and I am so happy.
I have not really had the emotional or physical energy to do any rituals during this period but I have been praying a lot and burning candles to my deities. I am also felt a real sense of closeness and aid from the divine. I am so glad that it went so well and that it is now over for a while.

I hope to be posting and commenting more often now.

Blessed Be,
)O(
