Seems like a century away!

Wow, it's been aegs since I last posted! I feel so bad for not visiting everybody as I should and wanted to, I'm sorry, guys! :P I did kept in touch with many of you at Facebook (which is a life-saver when time is short to write long posts, but we want to send smoke signs), but nothing compares to the detailed posts we can share here at our blog homes! ;)

I've been really really busy lately (still am, lol!) with Yule orders, thank the gods, this holiday was awesome for my shop! While last year I had only a couple of orders, this time I had a huge bunch of them. So I was happily sewing my fingers off, as Kris used to say. I created a bunch of new goddesses and gods, soon to be posted here.

In the meantime, Lucas moved to the next grade in school (grade 3 now, can't believe it...), and I'm proud that he got A+ in all subjects! ;) He won a medal at the soccer class along eith his little friends, and now is enjoying lazy days of vacation st home (until he goes to his dad after Christmas to spend January with him... But that's for another post, I don't want to think about it now).

My nephew William, my late sister's son, who lived here at mom's for two year since her death, went to live with his dad yesterday, in another state, to start college next year. We're all sad missing him, but we know this was a necessary step in his life, and he'll be okay. Good that there's internet to keep in touch!

Christmas is almost here, and we do celebrate it as a family holiday/tradition. All my siblings come to mom's, each bringing something home-made for the feast (traditionally we have turkey wih bittersweet sauce, French toast, manioc flour toasted in butter, salpicao, rice, and other yummies...), and we exchange gifts. The young kids, who still believe in Santa (my litle witch included), can hardly wait for it! Thanks to my shop, I could buy gifts for everybody this year, it's a great feeling! :)

And ('bout time!) Summer is finally coming here! We're facing weird stormy weather on a daily basis, always in the afternoons. The days start with a bright sun shining, warm weather. Then, when it's around 5pm, seems like the skies are falling over our heads (I have to remember Asterix then, lol), thunders and lightnings crossing above. Today was the first day in weeks that this didn't happen!

We'll celebrate Litha as usual, with a home breakfast picnic to salute the sunny day. I love the warmer months here in Petropolis, never too hot to bear, with a cool breeze in the evenings.

Also, I won some awesome prizes at Mrs. B.'s Halloween party (*taking mental note to post about them asap*)!

Summoning up, it was a good, busy time off! I hope you all firgive my absence from everybody's blogs, and I do hope everything went well in the meantime. I'll be pretty busy now catching up!

Kisses and love from us! <|;)

PS: Above is my little witch one of these days, ready to school, with hair gel, cute! ;)

Hope you have a wonderful Litha and I can't believe how grown up he looks! Is he 14 already. ;) I like the sound of your weather. Hope you enjoy and continue to enjoy the season there. :)

I was starting to worry!

What a gorgeous man-in-the-becoming you have!

I am so glad you are back! I have missed you dearly!
I am happy to hear your shop is doing well! The freya goddess I bought from your shop has a new home! I think she will be happy where she is going. I told the person who I gave it to all about you and your blog! The word is spreading!

I blinked a few times when I read the "Summer is coming" bit. I always forget how far south you are =)

Love keeping up with you on FB. I'm having a hard time keeping up with blogging too - so much to do!

Glad things are all going well at home and with the family. Lucas is growing up so fast!

Lucas keeps getting more and more handsome which doesn't surprise me with the beautiful mommy he has ;) So glad to hear that your etsy shop is prospering, Nydia. I think here in blog land we've all been a little crazed and not blogging or visiting others as much. Wishing you a light filled Solstice, Nydia.

Thank goodness for facebook! I'd have a hard time keeping up with everyone without it!

I'm so envious of your summer weather - even the storms! We never get good storms here. If we do, they are usually "nor'easters", full of freezing wind and rain or snow.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!!

Your family is just so beautiful and magickal Nydia! I always smile reading your posts and your strong love for Lucas and life. May 2011 be full of beautiful mystery and magick for all of you.
