I hope everyone had a good holiday season.
Things have been crazy here and between holiday events, work and the expensive disasters with the house I have not had much time to post.
I think the goblins got into our air conditioning unit outside and destroyed the motor and some creeping bad faerie got into the pipes at the back of the house and destroyed them, rusting them completely. Ended up being an expensive job to fix the whole lot of it . I don't know what posessed the builders of our house to put the wrong pipe in there in the first place but apparantly the naughty faeries found it a ripe target for mayhem:
It was an odd day during a week when the weather cant seem to decide whether to be cold or hot and the wind was blowing in unpredictable gusts, and wouldnt you know it a big gust of wind came up and the weather turned bad when my father was out working in the garden. He wasn't finished and a little weather usually doesnt bother him so he goes to get the hose and turn on the water and the whole spigot broke off in his hand! bloomin faeries!
Gaww! What a holiday. But I have to say now at years end, if there is one thing I have learned this year through all the strange happenings it is how much people should support and believe in one another. Especially those in a position to train or mentor. In my life I have only had two people who really believed in me and realized certain talents and traits and wanted me to suceed. And this year I have seen the stark difference between what it is like now and how it was like then in those two snapshots in time.
I do think the muses call to us at odd times when we are working at something unrelated. I don't know why I had the urge to make needle felted penguins with santa hats this year but I did and they were a hit. Perhaps further omen that I am better off doing creative persuits than my "normal" job that makes megar money. I spent a ton on myuki beads and findings this season and so I think I will make a resolution do do more beading, felting and writing in the new year. I discovered a music artist that does epic pieces for tv and film so I am letting their songs be the inspiration for my writing.
I hope every enchanted folk has a happy and blessed new year!
