Rest in Peace, Zee

As most of you probably know, Zelda Hopkins passed away at 4 am Saturday, September 8th 2018. I just found out a few minutes ago. I am deeply saddened, but I know she is in a much better place. She is in the arms of her Maker, and I look forward to cooking up all kinds of fun with her some day.

All about Mabon, The Autumn Equinox

It is the time of the autumn equinox, and the harvest is winding down. The fields are nearly empty because the crops have been plucked and stored for the coming winter. Mabon is the mid-harvest festival, and it is when we take a few moments to honor the changing seasons, and celebrate the second harvest. On or around September 21 (or March 21, if you're in the Southern Hemisphere), for many Pagan and Wiccan traditions it is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is abundant crops or other blessings. It's a time of plenty, of gratitude, and of sharing our abundance with those less fortunate.

Depending on your individual spiritual path, there are many different ways you can celebrate Mabon, but typically the focus is on either the second harvest aspect, or the balance between light and dark. This, after all, is the time when there is an equal amount of day and night. While we celebrate the gifts of the earth, we also accept that the soil is dying. We have food to eat, but the crops are brown and going dormant. Warmth is behind us, cold lies ahead. Here are a few rituals you may want to think about trying -- and remember, any of them can be adapted for either a solitary practitioner or a small group, with just a little planning ahead.

Prayers needed

Yesterday my granddaughter was walking their silver lab the dog was on the side of the road next to her and some stupid idiot come along hit the dog now she might have to have her leg amputated thank God the dog was on that side and he didn't hit my granddaughter. He stopped and yelled is that your dog and do you live around here and then took off and left the dog lay in front of my granddaughter. So I guess I'm asking for prayers for the dog she's a good dog.

Prayers and Positive Vibes for Zelda

Just got off the phone with Zelda. I've spoken with her several times this week. Today, she is so depressed and scared. She has CHF and not much is really being done about it. She is retaining an exorbitant amount of fluid all over her body and she feels it around all her internal organs as well as being very swollen externally. She said she feels like she won't last much longer.

I wish I could speak to her physician to learn a little more about her condition and what the plan is to reduce all this fluid retention.

She told me she has talked with a couple other friends from JaP and I want to thank you both for taking the time to visit with her. She needs some distractions and some uplifting stories from others. She asked me if I could send her some more $$ because she uses it to buy food sometimes when she doesn't like what the kitchen is serving. She doesn't eat pasta - no spaghetti; no mac & cheese, etc. And she said that's what they serve in some form nearly every day. It's a texture thing, I think...the pasta is cooked to a slimy mushy glob.

I just wanted to vent my own frustrations and give you all an update on our longtime friend.

Happy Friday.
