What's she up to now?!

This is one of those blog posts that I am actually planning out in Word before posting, as opposed to just typing directly into the box. I don’t want to forget anything important or mess up too badly!

Just the other day (which could be two days to a month ago), I was thinking about my blog. I took a trip down memory lane, and I’d like to revisit that with you all.

I started this blog in 2007, I believe, with the intention of writing about magical properties of herbs, fruits, vegetables, etc. I did that. I wanted to discuss sabbats and seasonally-appropriate recipes to help celebrate the turning of the wheel of the year. I did that. I included some recipes here and there, both referenced from other sites and my own creations. Sweet. Another check mark on the to-do list.
What I never did, though, was take all of my recipe ideas and sabbat celebration ideas and put it into a book. I meant to do that ages ago. Oops.

 I’ve actually worked on this project several times. It has had different incarnations over the years. I just never felt satisfied with what I was doing. Then, last year, inspiration struck, and I hit upon what I wanted to do. I’m still in the planning stages, so I don’t have a whole lot to tell you yet.
Maybe I’m just chronically bad at finishing projects; we’ll see. That’s my mantra, always: “We’ll see.”

I am going to put some of my unemployment time and energy into planning and organizing, and I’ll be testing a few things here and there, but it’s going to be a lengthy process. I might suffer burnout. I might have to come to you all for encouragement.

As for the blog, I have said all there is to say about magical properties of ingredients, etc. That doesn’t mean I won’t have new recipes and things to share in the future, however. I shan’t abandon my beloved blog, but content may soon consist of test recipes and me begging for the sweet release of death because I’m buried alive in recipes. Again, we’ll see.

Oh, and lest I completely forget: The project itself! I am working on a book of days. A kitchen witch’s book of days, to be exact. There will be information on magical properties, ideas for sabbats, and some other rantings and ramblings of mine, but most importantly, it will be almost a recipe a day. That’s a lotta recipes! I guess I’d better get back to my planning!

Love to you all, and thank you for reading. I shall be in touch shortly, I hope.
