Blog changes

In an effort to get this blog back on track I have simplified it, deleted some of the attached one-topic blogs
and focused on Sabbats and Esbats, which was the original intent.
Other writings will be in 'stumbling upon the path of the goddess'
and the Borrowed Book of Charms is still active.

no explanation...

So today, against my better judgment, I was in a grocery store to pick up a bottle of Martinelli's Sparkling Cider for a friend.  The place was packed, elbow to elbow, and I wasn't having any luck.  I didn't even know what it looked like and after cruising through several rows of drinks and asking two frazzled clerks (who pointed me in opposite directions) I gave up, decided to pick up a couple of bottles of pop and call it done.
I made a beeline for the Mountain Dew (my favorite) and there on the shelf, between two bottles of Mt. Dew, was a single bottle of Martinelli's Sparkling Cider.  I picked it up and then looked up and down the adjacent aisles for where it belonged.  No luck.
When I checked out the clerk said she thought it had sold out a couple of days ago.



  1. Who's the Goddess of Sparkling Cider? Maybe Pomona, whose name gives us the word apple in French (pomme)? Or Idunn, She of the Apples of Youth. Whoever She is, She was smiling on you! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Just one more thing to be thankful for!! Enjoy your cider! :)

  3. I remember loving that stuff as a kid, when I was convinced it was champagne, lol!

  4. Talk about lucky! Here's hoping we all share a little of your good fortune this holiday season.

  5. Pomona, Roman goddess of plenty, goddess of orchards. I will remember to offer thanks to her today. :-)

  6. Awesome. ^-^
    I love when wonderful stuff like this happens. Have a most wonderful day today! ^-^
