Feeling out of sorts as we enter the new season…

I’m back from my sister’s lovely wedding and back to feeling out of sorts.  This is just not my year with regards to health, is it?  In addition to a cold or allergies, I’ve been experiencing some stomach discomfort. Before heading to the wedding, I was lucky enough to get an appointment with my doctor who thinks the cause is due to the medications I was taking after my oral surgery.  Oh hurray!  The wisdom teeth fun continues.  (It’s been over a month and I still can’t feel my lower right lip or chin.  I guess you can’t go into any surgery, no matter how minor, and expect to come out of it like before.)  I have to do some tests to make sure it isn’t anything worse, and in the meantime my diet’s been restricted and I’ve been instructed to rest as much as possible…  Difficult to do, but necessary.  Unfortunately, I’ve felt compelled to rescind my RSVP for my grove’s Autumn Equinox ritual and a folk-only camping trip at the end of the month.  My schedule is so hectic right now thanks to grad classes.  I feel that I barely have enough time to do homework.  I’m stressed and uncomfortable…  The last thing I need is to rush off after weekend classes all the way to Syracuse or the Adirondacks before having to rush back for another week of work and night classes!  I’m sad about it, but I have to prioritize my health and college this month.

In the meantime, I can focus a bit more on my Nine Moons work while I’m relaxing at home.  The last quarter starts this week and I’ll be using it to catch up on the previous week’s ritual, some journaling, and reading.    I’ll also celebrate the turn of the seasons in my own little way.  I brought a few potted herbs in since the temperature is dropping dramatically.  The hag of winter is waking up and shaking the icy dust from her blankets.  Last night I witnessed frosted fields.  The farmers are starting to mew their cornfields.  Tonight I heard some Canada geese heading south for the winter…
