First sacrifice upon return

Yesterday I returned from a very long journey to another city.  The journey was pleasant, and I travelled through the mountains which had some snow lying about, and across several rivers.

When I returned, I realised that I haven't made any sacrifices in a long time.  I was having Middle-Eastern pizza that night, which contained beef (cows and bulls are listed in offering lists as frequent sacrifices), and so I gave it as an offering to the gods in my house before I ate it.

I felt spiritual and closer to the deities as a result.  It is sacrifices like these which ensure that we honour our side of our covenant with them.
