I have learned a lot in this journey. With the research needed to back up some posts, and the knowledge gained for those posts where I had no clue what to write about. Well, I could not have done it without some great force pushing me forward.
Again, thank you.

Roses are perfect for every occasion, including afternoon tea. My husband usually buys me flowers about once a month, and when he brings roses, I make this light and gently flavored tea once the flowers have all seen their best.
- Rose petals - these are available from specialist tea stores; if you have the time, you can also dry your own rose petals - instructions below
- Greenpowder tea
- Pick the rose petals and make sure they are free of dew.
- Half fill a net bag and close with an elastic.
- Hang the bag in a warm, dry and dark place to dry. This will take anywhere from a few days to a week, depending on the humidity of your environment.

The Sirens are probably best known for their part in the Odyssey where their song lured sailors to their death. Odysseus ordered his crew to plug their ears with wax (on the advice of Circe) so as not to be lured by the Sirens' song. In the story of the Argonauts, Orpheus sang sweetly enough to keep the men from succumbing to the Sirens.

I did this spell about 3 months ago. I started my new job 2 days ago. It took a bit, but I truly believe it worked.
- Large Green Candle
- Large Red Candle
Time: Thursdays (only after you have submitted your resume or applications)
With a pin or sharp knife, write the name of the company(s) you want to work for on the side of the large green candle. On the red candle, you need to carve the victory rune (Tiwaz, it looks like an arrow, pointing up) and your full name. Burn both candles for 30 minutes on Thursday after the sun sets, while visualizing yourself getting the kind of job you want. At the end of the 30 minutes, snuff the candles (do not blow them out). Burn them each Thursday after that for 15 minutes until they burn out, or until you get the job.
