Hail to the Children of Nut and Geb! (And to Sobek!)

From left to right: Sobek, Wesir, Heru-Wer, Set, Aset, and Nebtbet. And yes, I know Sobek isn't meant to be there, but He saw shiny green things and demanded something of His own.

From left to right: Sobek, Wesir, Heru-Wer, Set, Aset, and Nebtbet. Apologies for Dodgy-As-Fuck picture. I need a better camera. And a tripod. 😦

It’s nearly Wep Ronpet according to my calendar, which caught me by surprise. I missed Wesir’s birthday completely and had to make up for it the next day when I honoured Heru-Wer. It’s been good, though. This week has felt really busy because of this, and because I’m gearing up for another Sabbat-y thing in February that is not going to be either Imbolc or Lammas but something else I haven’t thought of yet that might just end up being ‘OH HAI HESTIA ILY’ with appropriate offerings and FIRE. Or something. /slacker Pagan strikes again.

BUT ANYWAY WEP RONPET Y HALO THAR. Will have to go out tomorrow to get Supplies! Once I work out what those supplies are. And write rituals! And then I can fucking rest for a while. But I will enjoy this anyway, because Wep Ronpet! Hestia! Zep Tepi! Bwee! The light of Ra is everywhere right now and it makes me happyhappyhappy. 😀

(That, and I don’t have a little statue for Heru-Wer like I do for the others! D:) But it’s over now, so I decided to spend the afternoon making little beady thingos to go with each of the candles to mark which one is which. I don’t do it very often, and it always takes me a while to remember the best way to thread and tie things off properly. I want to do more of it, though. It’s a creative thing I can do that doesn’t make me feel completely incompetent by the time I’m done.
