Happy Summer Solstice!!!

Today is actually a minor holiday in the Pagan year. If you didn't know, I'm a Pagan and very proud of it. I was raised Jewish and I still carry that with me everywhere I go. Because Judaism is also a culture and a way of life as much as it is a religion, I call myself a Jewish Pagan. Faith wise I'm pagan, lifestyle wise, I'm still a Jew. I don't eat certain things because that is how I was raised, I celebrate certain things also. If that makes sense to you. Below is a picture of my altar from this evening. Pretty isn't it? I have collected things over the years for it. When I finally moved into my apartment my parents, yep my parents, helped me set it up. My mom thinks it's a phase (life long phase) and my dad just accepts it as it is, only cares if I graduate college, get a job, pay the bills, and am a good person. That's not too much to ask is it?

Onto my sockapalooza socks. . . .OMFG THEY'RE STARTED!!!!! Yep, I finally chose a yarn, spring something by Fearless Fibers. Beautiful yarn!!!!! It's soft and the pattern of the Genevieves look great. The first picture below is of the sock earlier today while I was out waiting with Mac for a FedEx package. The one below that is a picture from about 8:30 this evening. I sat in my bedroom with Mac with the window open listening to the thunderstorm outside. I LOVE thunderstorms. . .and snow. =)

OOOOO and by the way, these new socks count for Summer of Socks! It's started!!!
