*yawn* So far it has been a good birthday morning. After totally giving up on receiving my altar items yesterday, this morning I was rudely awaken by the door buzzer. The friendly postman had my package! I am totally thrilled by the items. They are much prettier then I expected them to be, and they were well worth the wait.
Yesterday afternoon I was pretty bummed about my practice, but this has got me excited again. Yes, I know we don’t need tools and do-dads to practice, but when you have spent the last decade not using them, actually having a couple is pretty neat. 🙂
