In rainy Petropolis...

Hello, everybody!!  This mountain city is under water! Gods, it`s unbelievable how non-stop this rain is right now! Oh, I miss you guys! I miss visiting your pages and talking to you. But here we are in Petopolis, at mom`s, spending great days, our first real vacations for years! On Friday, my Rodrigo went to Minas Gerais with his dad, who came to fetch him and Baruck - who was a chapter apart, how hard it is to make a cat to get into a travelling box?! Poor cat, he was so stressed and frightened that it took us almost one hour to make him simply enter that damn box. He was meowing as if the worst spirit was trying to possess him... But in the end he calmed down, with his favorite lion toy and blanket. Rodrigo said he`s doing fine and adapting well to his new place.
On Saturday my aunt Sandra took me and Lucas to Petropolis, with tons of luggage, among clothes, personal articles, toys, my magick stuff, handcraft things... It is really good to be here at my mom`s house. This is the very first time I can stay more than five days straight (we`ll go to Minas on the 29th), due to my tight working schedule. The only negative note is that, with the drastic change of weather (and life), as Rio is rainy but hot, and here is so chilli and rainy as well, Lucas got his old tonsilits back, and the fever is haunting him since Sunday. But medicines are being given and his mood is great, he loves being here with his fun grandma.
I already set a little altar on my bedside table, and while I chat and "gossip" with my mom and brother Evaldo, I take the time to make little witches for Carioca Witch and some handmade gifts for my relatives. The Summer Solstice ins approaching and I`ll have to make something discreet to celebrate, since my family is catholic and you know... They respect my choices but I wouldn`t feel comfortable celebrating the sabbath like I do at home. Oh well, I`ll find something to do at our bedroom, lit a candle and thank the coming warm season.
I just wanted to let you know how things are doing. I hope you are doing fine, in good health and good spirits. I`ll be back as soon as I can. Take good care and keep me posted too about you!!
Bright blessings & kisses from us.

I'm sorry you are getting so much rain, but glad you are with family and are finding time to relax and have fun. Sorry your son is sick again. Maybe he will get use to the climate change soon.
I have an idea for you for the summer solstic. Maybe you can cut out paper suns and hang them in your room. That would be a nice way of welcoming the season.
Also thanks for the reminder at 2withces. I went by and put my name in.

It is good to hear from you. Sorry Lucas' throat trouble has flared, might be a bit of 'moving stress' involved. We have moved several cats over the years and it never easy.
We will be celebrating Solstice also thus we might avoid the Festering experience.
Take care, Blessed be.

I am so glad to hear from you! Glad you're having a good time at your mom's.

Sorry to hear about the rain and Lucas' throat. Hope they both get better!

Glad to hear things are moving along (even if a bit over-damp) there, and hope the fever clears up for Lucus in time to enjoy the holidays.
As for celebrating with your family, The summer solstice in the Catholic calender is celebrated by St. John the Babtist's day, so you can feast, play games, and celebrate right along with your less witchy relatives. I'm sure you could come up with a cross-denominational festival to keep everyone happy and in the holiday mood. *grin*

Aww sorry to hear your little man is sick. I have had a sore throat myself for a while now. It's definately no fun. Blessings for Lucas to feel better! I hope you have a great day!!!

Yay! So happy to see a post from you! Sorry that Lucas has tonsillitis, but glad you are at your mom's and can have a nice long visit. Hope Baruck the Kitty gets settled soon. They get used to new places quickly. All the changes, even positive ones, are hard on people's minds, though, so hang in there!!!

Good to hear that you are having fun with the family and that your move is under way! So exciting! So nice that this move gives you an extra long visit with your family along the way.

Poor Baruck! There are not many cats who enjoy travel. But at least he is adapting well to his new home.

So sorry to hear Lucas is sick again, but it sounds like his grandma and uncles are helping Mom take good care of him! Hope he feel better soon!

I've missed you, dear Nydia, but it's great to hear that you're enjoying yourself. Poor Lucas - any stress and temperature change can set off the tonsillitis. Having a fun visit should help him to recover quickly though. Hugs to you all.
