Early Holiday Gifts-yay!!!

Here's a little something that arrived today. I have always loved trees and in the last year or so the raven has appeared to me many times and I am feeling a much closer connection with it now.

My first gem show

I have always wanted to go to a rock and gem show, but it never seems to work out with my schedule when they are around. This year it was perfect timing, and I was able to go. I picked up these pieces while I was there. My favorite is the amazing quartz piece, and my new selenite piece. Both have amazing energy that I just couldn't resist.

Birthday Time

My boyfriend and I both love Jimmy Buffett, so this year I ordered him a Jimmy Buffett themed cake, and he loved it. Our birthdays are pretty close together so we usually celebrate together. We went out for a nice dinner at a place called Schooner's on the water, to a ball game, did some shopping, visited the pumpkin house, and later in the week I surprised him with concert tickets to see Trans Siberian Orchestra (TSO) all in all it was a wonderful time.

The Pumpkin House

I love visiting the Pumpkin House near Halloween each year. It's a little house in Ohio, and the pumpkins go up in number each year. This year there was 3,030 carved pumpkins. It's a wonderful thing to see. I'm amazed each time we go! This year my favorite pumpkins were all the various birds people carved, and I also loved the simple peace sign pumpkin!

Fall Thoughts

I know I haven't posted anything in a while, but hopefully I can update more often coming up. I'm playing catch up with posts today though! The first picture is of a little squirrel looking in the window at us when we woke up one morning. I adore squirrles, so I loved that this little guy let me take a picture of him. I talked to him at the window for a while, and he just stood there looking at me. The next picture is just a cool older house I liked at the beginning of our ghost walk on a tour one night. Next was just a view of mushrooms in the yard. I get so excited when I see them-I know silly me! Here's a view of the lake I often go to in the fall and just sit and meditate when I can. Last of all here's a picture of some new fall and Halloween decorations I picked up for the year.
