My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

all Saints Day

November 1st is All Saints Day
Today we remember and honour all saints of the church
and we give thanks for our saints -known and unknown

I look on the saints as experts in their field
just like here on earth where many of us have areas where we excel
* mine would definitely be vacuuming!* St Robyn patron saint of the vacuum cleaner
and I believe it is much the same in Heaven

You can't forget St. Anthony - patron saint of lost objects
many a time I have uttered a little prayer asking St Anthony to help me find something I have misplaced
* and dear St Therese, who I leaned on during my radiation treatment
* St Gerard, whose protection I was put under when diagnosed with cancer
* St Christopher of course, whenever we travel
and St Jude when all else fails - patron saint of hopeless cases
we don't pray to the saints as such but more ask them to pray for us to God

and in waiting for All Souls day tomorrow
*light a beeswax candle & pray the rosary or burn incense & pray the litany of saints

Dear Ms 'Hoover' - thank you for the explanation of the Saints. Not being a Catholic, I never learned much about them.

It's funny how in England one never talks about vacuuming a carpet - it's always Hoovering, even though Hoover is only one brand of cleaner. Like how we never talk of a portable food cooler - it's always an Esky, even though there are other brands.

I wonder if there's a patron saint of housework? hmm...
