So I totally know this is late but hey, I have a life too. With work, the Fur Kids, and a Police husband, I am busy cleaning, cooking sleeping and relaxing (when I can). So now I am writing my Samhian post.
At work we decided on a Sports them. I went as a referee as did my partner in crime.
The other girls dressed as a tennis, soccer, and baseball player.
We had a wrestler, and a handful of tail gaiters.
We all brought food and had a big Halloween feast.
It was fun and some of the other departments really went all out. Our Medical Records department chose Hocus Pocus to dress up as. I have to say that they won the day in my book.
They had a floating cauldron and the hanging cages with kids in them ( not real ones).
The sacred candle which can only be lit by a Virgin.
And who could forget Billy Butcherson?
They did a great job.
It was a long day at work but I was ready to head over to ritual with my friend Barbra. Our lovely host had the house decorated to the 9’s. They had over 300 kids come trick or treating to her house alone.
The food was amazing!
The fire pit was a blaze and we all gathered round for warmth and conversation.
Circle was set with beautiful lights as the spirit world lingered just on the other side of the thinning veil.
Paula and Cody graciously invited us in to circle. It was a magical time to reflect on the past year and what was to come in the new year. You could feel those who had left this relm reaching out to us. Letting us know they are there and to thank us for remembering them.
We all lit candles for our ancestors.
It was a wonderful evening. I am so glad that I can be a part of such a fantastical group of people.
Now that November has started it is time to be thankful and show appreciation for all that we have in this dark time of year. Love, shelter, friends, jobs, LIFE! I think that I will post about what I am thankful for throughout November. I challenge you to tell someone what you are thankful for too.
