Did you know that marigold flowers are nothing less than Calendula??? So I plant loads every year and dry them along with lavender , rosemary, sage, thyme, you name it and  label it for baths and all sorts of potions and lotions…

News News not sad News

I know that what is happening in the world is sad but I try to stay away from comments on religions, wars, politics. I know I graduated in political sciences but I have opinions and can not be neutral to certain things that bother me so I prefer to keep it to myself at the moment.
In my little world, in my bubble many things happened this week. I bought a house on a property Auction, yes a stone cottage with a giant garden so when we start doing it up because it needs some love, hopefully I won't be too tired to update you with photos and "how to" stories. I had been to Auctions before but never really got anything because my bids and what I was prepared to spend were never the highest bid so this time I did it and when the hammer hit the table I had an "adrenaline rush" so powerful that it felt like being a child before my birthday or Christmas. It started in my heart or in the mouth of my stomach  a heat, a happiness, an excitement like the Sun was Shinning inside and spreading all over my body and I actually did the victory arms considering I was by myself there and a giant smile was plastered in my face, well sitting to make the paperwork arrangements the woman sitting behind me during the auction that bid on a garage and won told me she did not know why she bought the garage? I asked her She was looking forward for that garage and she told me she always goes to Auctions and bids on something without seeing it beforehand like out of her own intuition (OOOKAY!)
The solicitor joking said to me "It's a lovely PUB you are buying" and if I didn't know any better I would start to panic because after your bid is accepted there is no turning back. I went to this auction with one property in mind and my husband had been to the cottage at least five times on viewing days so I knew it wasn't a pub :)
Did I mention it's my birthday soon? And did I mention I got back home dancing and jumping with happiness ?!!! Woooohooo!!!!
So did I mention I am going on holiday next week and will be off grid for a month?
Yes but don't worry I will be back full of new places,stories and pics to share by the end of august. Because even a Goddess needs a break once in a while to regenerate and recuperate...
Love you all and will miss you and if you leave comment I will read it on my return to the net! Please keep tuned and don't disconnect for 
 "I'LL BE BACK"
