Yesterday my sisters and I visited an independent book store in Millerton, NY called Oblong Books & Music. A friend of a friend works there and I love the random assortment of books they have! I was looking for a cook book since being at the island with the family I’m a nanny for inspired me to, thanks to the mom’s awesome cooking and experimenting skills with food. As I was browsing, I moved a small blue berry cook book out of the way in front of other books and happened to find The Wicca Cook Book: Recipes, Ritual, and Lore 2nd ed. I just smiled at it and felt my heart lift. I knew There was a first cook book out there for me somewhere, and I wasn’t even searching for a magical one specifically! I’m not sure what I’ll cook just yet, but the recipes are organized by Sabbat, so I’ll see what’s there for the Summer Solstice for the time being.
Today, I went to Mystic CT with my family and after the aquarium we visited the Olde Mystic Village Shoppes. There’s a store called Mystical Elements with TONS of mystical stuff ranging from Asian to Wiccan. In short, IT’S AMAZING!! I didn’t get a whole lot today because I didn’t want to overwhelm myself (not to mention saving money) but I did get 2 bags of loose tea and a pack of cloth bags to use for said tea, herb baths, charms, etc and they’re re-usable! The teas I got were Grandma’s Tonic Tea, for detoxifying; and Earl Grey Green Tea with Lavender. It sounds so soothing ^__^ I think I’m going to try the tonic tea tonight, I’ll let you all know how it is soon!
