Day of Birth

On December 2nd 1987 at 8:04 in the morning I came into this world.

This past December 2nd I celebrated y 28th birthday.

Since I have been having a lot of flare ups, I didn’t really feel like doing much I ended up just having lunch with my dad and sister. We then went to a couple of thrift stores to look for books I found quite a bit. I kind of have a bit of a book buying addiction (that I don’t intend curing any time soon). Plus I bought most of the books at Goodwill which were $1-$2 each so it was hard not to buy a lot. I found some really good ones .Here is a picture:

After thrifting we went to my brother’s house and made breakfast for dinner. My sister had also made me dirt cake. It was delicious! Overall it was a good birthday.

Pen Pals

I’m in a couple of Pagan groups on Facebook and one day a bunch of us decided that we missed old fashioned letter writing. So we created a separate group exclusively for letter writers. From there I found another group that did Pocketletter Pen Pals If you don’t know what those are go here.

I quickly found two pals to exchange with. It was pretty fun but I realized that you need a lot of scrap booking supplies. Something I don’t really have. I mostly just have some stickers and washi tape. Though it was fun, I don’t think I will be doing it again any time soon. I just don’t have a stock pile of scrap booking supplies already so it makes it really expensive

That’s okay though because I have about 7ish regular hand writing pen pals that I started exchanging with. If you hear me talk about my pen pals in the future then you will know what’s up.

Here are the wonderful pocket letters I did receive:

First Pen Pal (she sent e two pages. I’ll show you the front and the backs).:

My second Pen Pal sent me lots of little goodies (I accidentally opened hers upside down and everything fell out. I put it back together a little sloppy for the picture. Oops):

She also sent me a birthday card (which was the 2nd of December):

Surprise Visit

I’ve been meaning to post for the past two weeks, but I got really busy. That means I will be writing a couple of posts today. One reason I was so busy is because my sister came home for a visit. She was on spring break from college. I didn’t even know she was coming home until she surprised me at work Friday night (the 6th). She and my mom had kept her visit a secret for a month. Since she was only here a week, we spent a lot of time together. We mostly just hung out and watched Netflix. Last Thursday we ended up going to the beach. I found a bunch of big chunks of shells that I’m going to use to make jewelry with.

Shells Edited

I couldn’t really find any whole shells and the ones I did find were to thin to make jewelry with. I like these pieces though and they are nice and thick. Even thought I’m not really a fan of the beach, it was still nice to being there and feeling the energy of the ocean. Another thing I like about the beach is that it’s where all the elements come together; earth, air, water, fire. The elements plus the salt in the water make it a very healing place. The only thing I didn’t like was that it was really packed.

One morning we ate breakfast at a 50’s diner because my sister really likes 50’s memorabilia.

After breakfast that day, we went thrifting. I found some really nice things. I found this beautiful wooden box that I put my crystals and gemstones in:

I also found this awesome filo-fax style planner. This was my favorite because I had been really wanting one of these about a month ago. The only ones I could find online were $40+. This one was $2! The down side is it smells like cigarettes. I’m going to have to figure out how to get that smell out.

I also found these cute little jars for my herbs:

I didn’t find these jars during this trip, but I really wanted to show them:

I’m going to use these to put my baking ingredients in.

All in all, it was really nice seeing my sister again. The last time she had been home was Christmas which is a long time because we are really close. Now I just have to wait until summer to see her again.
