Full Moon
Mars Retrograde
Saturn Retrograde
Fourth of Advent
Rainy and cold

We actually have to worry about flooding today, so I got up early and moved the car. Of course, the only place safe from the water isn’t safe from debris loosened by the high winds, so I’m taking a risk no matter what I do.


I ended up cleaning out a bunch of cupboards yesterday (hey, when the cleaning urge hits, who am I to ignore it?), which is also going to make things much easier when it’s time to pack up and go.

Ran my errands. Bought a dust devil Kone – yes, I am a woman who can get excited about appliances, especially one that will make my life so much easier. The cats HATE it.

Did a massive grocery shopping, but now have everything I need through most of next week, although I’ll have to go to Trader Joe’s about mid-week for more cat food and maybe some treats for the New Year. I decided I’m going to spend next weekend at a friend’s and then go on retreat for the Eve and the Day.

Worked on the Christmas story off and on. I’ve given myself off from Earth Bride and Hex Breaker until the 26th.

Today is a baking day – I want to make different breads and rolls to do with the feasts for the eve and the day, but instead of making them ON the eve and the day, I’ll bake them today and be done. I also want to get at least two hours done on the work for Confidential Job #2 – it’s due January 4th, but I’ll have to send it out on Friday before I leave for the weekend.

Keep your fingers crossed it doesn’t flood. That would REALLY suck on the day before Christmas. Many people in the neighborhood haven’t even been able to move back into the houses that were destroyed back in March and April – it would be awful if they had to re-gut everything and start over AGAIN – all because FEMA and the city have done jack to make sure this doesn’t happen again.

The Yule ceremony was lovely and has put me in a good frame of mind for the coming season.

  1. Bought a dust devil Kone

    Is that the one that looks like a piece of 1960s sculpture? They look very cool and hip. 🙂

  2. Hi, Devon

    I like your blog. Great name, too. Isn’t it amazing how strong the planetary energies have been since the last New Moon? May you stay high and dry through this latest storm. Merry Christmas!


  3. Oh no! Not flooding again! I’m praying it doesn’t happen and that you have a blessed Christmas time, Devon.

  4. First of all, I hope everyone in your neighborhood will be able to return to their homes as soon as possible. Secondly, your blog is wonderful. It’ll take sometimes for me to explore all of your posts — but I’m sure I will enjoy reading them.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  5. MORE flooding? Good grief, I certainly hope not. Have a wonderful time baking. It’s very funny to hear that the cats don’t like the ‘clone’. *g* Do they run from it or swat at it? (I have a cat that hates Daughter’s electric toothbrush.) I hope you have a wonderful day!

  6. Finger crossed against flooding and for a very merry, cozy, joyful holiday season for you! Bread sounds yummy. Retreat sounds even yummier.

  7. THANK YOU for your insight to NYC! We just returned from our 4Day visit. WE LOVED it!! We are glad that we saved our Major siteseeing walk for Saturday, because we could hardly move as we were packing to leave Sunday morning! Our walk from Central Park to the Brooklyn Bridge via Hell’s Kitchen, The Empire State Bldg., W 25th Street Flea Market, Greenwich Village, SoHo, Little Italy, Bowery, etc… didn’t seem that long while we were busy gawking and taking it all in – but we are still recovering!!
