What do you wish for your home?

This year I will be wishing a lot.
Each Wednesday I visit Jamie, who leads the Wishcasting Wednesdays.
Each Saturday I use her Wishcasting Journal. It is an extra special journal as it was the first ever to go out from Jamie Ridler Studios.
On Wednesdays I write my wishes here in my blog and illustrate with one of my own pictures.
On Saturdays I do something different. First I´ve taken Kathryn´s approach to the wish. I open the jounal and leave it open somewhere I can see every day, more than once a day. I take the wish with me for a week and on the following Saturday I work on the journal. And the other difference is that I use collage as in my Full Moon boards (I don´t write over them and I don´t put strangers faces there) and write in my own handwriting. I might get to colour/paint/doodle in the future. Everything goes in my journal.

Today Jamie asks "What do you wish for your home?" I addressed the subject within my "What do you wish for this year?" journal enrty this Saturday.
Here´s my list (the blue words in the page):
*efficient housework routines
*energy to perform them
*cleanness
*nutritious and varied meals
*clean and tidy clothes
*joy
*knick knacks (small ornaments, trinkets)
*photographs
*friends
*laughter
*fun
*entertainment

What I noticed from the whole page is that I wished for efficiency and energy on all aspects of my life. During the summer holidays the routines were more relaxed and laid back but not horizontal. ;) Then come my material wishes. I want pretty little things. :D The friends and laughter part comes from my wedding´s blessing. I totally loved the priest wishing us a home full of friends and laughter. I will be working on my connection and community feeling again.
