So my partner comes home with a cold. That's fine - I make sure he drinks orange juice and eats some fruit. Of course then, taking care of him, it passes to me. Just in time for my last day of mid-term break, going back to school bright and early tomorrow morning. I'm going to enjoy today, laying on the couch, relaxing and drinking orange juice and water. Making some Indian food tonight (sweat it out, baby!). My kitten is enjoying the day sitting on my lap, incessantly giving me little kitty kisses. <3!
It sucks though as well, that I'm sick just in time for Noumenia. I'm usually pretty dedicated to regular practice and worship; it's grounding for me, and maintaining that sort of regular, close relationship is fulfilling in a very amazing way. Lately though, I've been allowing the stress of my life to make me forgetful and lazy, and I am definitely suffering for it. This is something that I'm going to have to work on this month, learning to deal with the stress of life's obligations without losing the things that are important to me. Maintaining myself under stress has always been a problem.
Fortunately, my Slavic practice has been pretty well maintained - though I need to clean off the altar space with my photos, offering plate, etc. I'm glad I've been regular with it - I just hope that I get better before the very end of this month, because there is a lot to be done! I'm reminded that I need to acquire some pretty things to make a wreath from; I also need to acquire some dyes and kisky to make kraslice (pisanky). I know not much money will come my way this month, but the credit card is paid up, so getting ahold of the supplies should not be difficult. I shall, for sure, post pictures!
