I am the square peg that doesn't fit into the round pagan hole. I'm a witch, ecclectic, learning, researching and having a blast. Join me in my quest to be happy no matter what kind of witch I grow up to be. Perhaps you will find your way too.

Happy Monday everyone! Well, went mugwort picking with Mrs. B this past Saturday. There was a nice size group and we had a very enlightening time. Here I am thinking mugwort is this exotic herb that I can only get at the metaphysical store. WRONG! Its a weed! It's all over New Jersey. We picked this up by the beach, the city is chopping it down left and right. Mrs. B mentioned that the stalks get very thick and grow up to 6 ft. tall. Hmmmmm....that sounds familiar, and when I got a look at it, it even LOOKS familiar. Why? Because I've trying to chop it down for the last five years! The minute I got home I walked over to a corner on my property and sure enough there it is. Hubby mowed it last week. Actually, he weed wacked it. Wait until I tell him not to mow it anymore so I can harvest it! He thinks I'm nuts anyway, he'll think I went over the edge on this one. Thank you Mrs. B for showing me what mugwort really looks like, now I can get creative with my very own patch of mugwort.

Jeez it hard being a witch sometimes. Candlemaking, art, cooking, spirituality, spells, soltices, esbats now I have to worry about weed wacking really cool weeds!
