SOL!! {{{that's snort out loud}}}

I snorted when I read that, DOK! Too funny.

Happy to say I came out of hiding, or whatever that was I was doing, long before Septemeber.

Mine did that too lol. I didn't arrive home till the 13th.. but I can't decide if the 2.5wks since I got home flew past, or have crept quietly away without my noticing!

<snipped>
(Hopefully we won't have it on the ground here until late Oct or November - But maybe we'll focus on celebrating what the coming snow means rather than dreading the short days of winter - more snow on the ground does mean more light a snowless winter is sooo dreary.)
You live in Alaska? *sigh* I think I remember that now... what a beautiful, but BRIEF autumn! LOL : Whale watching and critter spotting was one of our favourite past times when we lived there. (NOTE: I think I carried thisquote over from the Aug thread before I clued in that it's sept.. thanks to DOK's reminder post lol)

By then the boys & I will be outside by about 630am and back in for the day (most days) by 9ish. The sun & heat gets too unbearable after that most days! By then I'll be WISHING for Autumnal-ness hehehe.

Anyways... it's nice to meet you all!
Welcome EarthMommy. Good thing Paganism & Buddhism aren't mutually exclusive!

The woman in the ritual started out with her hair tied up/put up, and wearing a dark dress or sarong (over other clothing) and then during the course of the ritual one of the other women pulled the pin letting her hair down and she whipped off the sarong to reveal a colourful, gorgeous dress and danced to celebrate HERSELF and the opportunities now before her. It sounded awesome... You need to find a way to turn this into not being about what you perceive as your failure... and into being about your recognizing it was time to be free, ala a butterfly in a cocoon!

It's been a busy day. Now I'm fighting with my computer because I'm trying to set up an online Pampered Chef party (stoneware is on sale, dude!). My email has been wonky so sending out the link, etc, is driving me bonkers.

We went to meet ds's new teacher today. She's younger than I expected. And she has blonde hair so ds is happy. Yes, you read that right. Because Cinderella has blonde hair, he has a thing for blondes. LOL. She seems gentle yet organized...yippee!
School starts tomorrow (half day).
Oh I love me some pampered chef lol... damn that pacific ocean! I hope the blondeness is the starting point for a great working relationship for your ds with his teacher :

Well, ladies, color me green with envy for all that FAB "autumnal" weather! It's still hot as sin here in Texas! It has gotten a smidge cooler in the mornings and it's only in the 90s during the day, so that's better than over 100! I'll just plan on living vicariously through you all....keep up the delicious autumn talk!!

Our second week of school seems to be trucking along pretty well. We're getting into the curriculum now so things will be busy! My kiddos this year seem pretty nice, if a bit overly talkative. I'll just have to figure out some creative ways to channel that chattiness (although, for some of them, it's full blown diarrhea of the mouth!!) More seriously, I'm always amazed at the differences in what some of my students think is appropriate at school and in public as compared to what I was taught. Not to be ugly about it or anything. I don't hold it against them, but some behaviors/actions/spoken thoughts boggle my mind!

I am welcoming this new season with open arms and can't wait for Samhain and the New Year. I close on my house in about three weeks and after my great session with my therapist this weekend, I really feel like a new chapter is opening.....I feel blessed! Happy September, all!

I do need pagan girlfriends!! I want to celebrate on Friday, my Mom wants to go to the casino...the one right up the road from where my EX is now. I said I didn't really want to go there ever again. So we will see what happens. I rather just go to a bar, drink, shoot pool, etc

Oooh, that sounds like a great ritual! Hrmmm, maybe I could do a variation of that myself on say...Thursday night since the hearing is Friday afternoon? Did I mention EX won't be there?? Yeah, coward. Its all good though, I have no desire to see him.

I've been spending the day reading my favorite J.R. Ward book. I'm about to crack open another one too. I think its helping to keep me distracted while raising my vibration I need to work on being more positive again. I was doing so well before the EX left and before I let him play me recently. Should be interesting to see what my positivity brings.

Oh and Autumn is my FAVORITE time of year. LOVE it.

Got to catch up with one of my co-leaders...It was awesome! I just got in (and I left about 5 hours ago!).

Also a little funny from the universe...on Saturday at our planning meeting, the four of us co-leaders were saying that it would be great to have another group in the east end of the city because it is a far drive to the other groups from there. Then we were saying, we just didn't have enough members to split the group...we weren't at 25 moms or anything. Guess what happens at tonight's meeting? 20 moms! We were running out of room! We'll see how the toddler meeting goes next week and the series meeting next month.

I also came home and the laundry was all done! I had sorted it all out and DH did it all! Just wonderful! I now need to relax a little so I can sleep. I also saw the beautiful moon! Sooo pretty!

I have been reading "The Earth Path" and I have to say that I like some of the activities/ideas/meditations that are in there. I don't always connect with everything she says but at least there is some good useful stuff that I can practically make use of or something that makes me reflect on where I am, where I am going, etc. It does go through each of the elements with specific things tied to each one (and some are simple like practicing your observation skills). Off to dive into the spiritual work and hope that I can get grounded so I can sleep.

Morning all. I am trying to wake up this morning. I slept so deep I am having a hard time keeping my eyes open. Third day of High School for my guys. Things seem to be going well. This year is proving to be a bit tough on me, my guys are getting ready to fininsh up with school and move on to college in 2 years and it's just hitting me.

Roo starts 1st grade! Yippee! (I'm a little nervous about it because it's quite different from Kindergarten.)
post #29 of 595
DOK- it is pretty different but hopefully his teacher will temper the requirements by offering great projects that really engage him.

Gun- I mean't comment on the other thread- I am so happy to hear that everything is back on track for the adoption.

Maia- how are you holding up dear?

Singin- You know, I find everytime I say something like, "lets not" or "we dont" someone in the universe hears me and poof, we are suddenly overwhelmed with helpers, people and lots of kids. It is great!

I have a slight scratchy throat, think I have a mild cold. Time to kick up the herbs, vitamins for fall.

Mornin' Ladies!

I'm on the second day of a 2 day headache (it had better not be a 3 day headache!) and it sucks.

I've had headaches and migraines since I was 16...but that doesn't make them any better to live with. When we lived in Indiana our family doc would do cranial sacral adjustments and acupuncture and I'd be headache free again for a good long while. I need to find someone here to help me with these horrible, life-sucking, things.

Anyway, yes autumnal weather! loving it! The boys have been spending 3-5 hours outside playing in the woods, climbing, building forts, digging and using their muscles and imaginations BIG time. They come in dirty and tired and after dinner they practically beg for bedtime.

I take Whinnie out in front of the house in the mornings and she plays, visits the cat, digs in the gravel driveway, moves the cat, draws with chalk, moves the cat...yeah, she's obsessed with our free cat, Solstice, who seems to have adopted us (he showed up on the evening of the summer solstice and has been around since...) While she does all these things, I knit. Heaven.

I spent time yesterday afternoon looking through my homeschooling planning pages and am really loving what I am seeing. I needed to take time to integrate the math work for Nic, since I didn't have that book yet when I wrote out the rest.

Goodness, a full moon Friday and a three-day-weekend and then we start school!

Good Morning!

THIS, I am very much looking forward to!

The weather is just beautiful here right now. I can smell autumn, and everyone is looking at me like I am crazy when I say that I can't wait for those cool nights to turn to cool days! I'm ready for jeans, boots, and hoodie weather! lol

Does anyone have any plans for the full moon this friday? I am hoping that it will put SIL in labor and I will get the phone call and be headed to the birthing center to be her main support. I'm very excited to meet my new nephew!

I think I might want to plan a small get together bbq this weekend before things get crazy when the kids start school. Plus, I have a lot of gardening to do this weekend. My garden looks pretty sad, with the exception of my herbs and cherry tomatos and banana peppers. I picked a giant yellow squash out of my dads garden yesterday! Can't wait to cook that up, and he's got tons more and he won't eat them... so, they're all mine!

: You all bring a smile to me every day. I really enjoy getting to hear all about the new babies, milestones, gardening, reading, and so on. I so wish we were all neighbors!

DOK- I hope ds has a wonderful school day

BellaLR- hold on to your positivity! Cari's ritual sounds like a fantastic idea.

EarthMommy- A bbq sounds like a good farewell to summer. I'm about ready for boots and blue jeans too.

Wombat- hope your girlie parts are healing and feeling better

I'm so behind on hs planning- I'd better go hop to it!

Good Morning Mamas!

Another blue sky here! I know I have to do some pretty insane cleaning before DHs mom comes (that's just me) but I know dd and I will escape the indoors to celebrate Mother Nature's beauty!

The Full Moon is sooo soon and I can't decide what to do! Friday we are going to see a baseball game and DH's mom and sister will be over for the weekend, so nothing formal. I think I will try to get something in Thursday night before they arrive. At least being outside and seeing the beauty and taking it all in. I would like to do a fertility "ritual" - a blessing or something since we are going to try again after this summer's ectopic pregnancy adventure. I have a huge pull that June is an important month for some reason...but if we conceive next month, we would be due in June. We'll just have to wait and see!

I'm also in the midst of planning a Mabon ritual with a friend of mine. It should be a good time! Just to find space...I want to do it outside, but that depends on the weather.

Shortly, we will be going back to our scheduled programming - drop-in play stuff. The military family resource centre has fantastic programs so we can't wait until it starts again and we can hang out with other moms and babes! Tonight is my staff meeting...I have all my stuff together for that. It starts at 6:30 but I don't think it will be short. There is a lot to talk about and get going because the cadets come back next week and the week after we get our new recruits! Yikes!

Alright, enough babbling...off to enjoy this great day and continue celebrate the turning wheel!

(well, now, yesterday makes sense. i'm sick now too. posting nice and slow. at least i slept last night! yay, sleep!)


full moon...
i'm more anxious for this full moon than i usually am. i'll probably do something with my new moon beads... maybe re-make them adding in something fresh.

(editing...articles up now! :-)) those of you who are new and havent heard me go on and on about mooncircles.com, but are looking for moon-related things, the full moon articles/rituals are up now here ...it's a wonderful site. (and, we SO need a moon-smiley. anyone here know how do make one and get it passed?)


redveg~ congrats on the new pup!

liza, i love the felted bowl idea! i think that fits very nicely in with the project!

maia~ yay you!!! 100% & 90%! you're awesome!!
(thanks for asking about ds. he's much better now, but freaked me out monday night. i think now that he was already getting sick and that's why he had such a bad fall.)

LM, yay grocery shopping alone. i lurve it.

SA~ happy b'day to your little, and hugs & smooth party vibes to you!

so, mary, do you like september? i wasnt sure.... (that is usually me in october, although here it's too hot even then for my blood.)

saphire, happy b'day to your dh! (and belated to cari's dh!) mine's 35th is this month too! (and my own is next month! wheee!)


that autumnal bliss... fall is our favorite season without doubt. but, does the picture-perfect stuff like clay posted... does it really exist? (keep in mind i've lived in the northwest, the southwest, the middle, as well as houston... and england.)


earth mommy, welcome!

dok, how cute that ds likes his teacher because of cinderella!

crescent, i'm so excited for your new home! (speaking of living thru others, i'm following you along that path with your home! it's making me feel like my home will come soon. )

mary, hugs on the headaches! have you tried tapping for them? i get migranes and tapping has really helped.

(yes, i am aware i talk about tapping alot. maybe i should tap on that.... heh.)


~~~~
i am so excited about the year-o-beading project. my idea clicked nicely into place (lack of sleep and getting sick is great inspiration, i guess! lol). i'm going to do an "all seasons tree" either embrodered wall-hanging or a wire-wrap/bead thing... with one special bead or charm for each "branch" that will be re-movable so i can either wear it or add it to my prayer beads.

i havent gotten out to get a new book yet, so i'm either going to re-read some mary stewart merlin books or dust off tolkien a bit earlier than i'd planned....

happy hump day, all!


eta: cari, you know what would make me feel better? mmm.... camp! i even have altar pics ready to share..... <grin. xoxox>

I have many faults...lack of enthusiasm has never been one of them...

And tapping, I'm glad you bring it up often. I have it bookmarked and know I will get into it and try it soon. I'm not procrastinating so much as I am waiting for the intuition that right NOW is the right time. I'm like that.

And I'd try dancing around a pyre of dead chickens if that's what it would take to rid me of headaches and dysfunctional thought patterns (and yes, I understand that there could be a connection)
post #36 of 595
maybe the chickens would help! have you tried that?

there is absolutely a connection for me. i keep almost mentioning this, but i think i've edited it out each time i've started to... the guy who does tapping.com has a chakra workbook (<waves>, hi! saphire!--she's done it too) that was, i think i would actually say, life changing for me. i am not quite clear-headed enough right now to be coherent about how it works, but it really drew out that connection and cleared some major things up and out as it were. it's unfortunately not free, but i have one "preview" exercise he emailed out as a practice that i could send you to try if you're interested... although, to be honest, i think the power of it ultimately lies in doing all of them and moving on to successive... levels... ugh. if my head wasnt filled with cotton, i might be able to explain it better....

i've been noted for my enthusiasm as well at times, though a good deal of it seems to have been transfered to the babe, lol... & i hear you on waiting for the intuition-- i am just the same myself. it does get called procrastination a lot, though... ;-)
post #37 of 595
I love love love September. I mean, yes I'm partial to it, since it's my birthday month, but I love it! I told my sister yesterday that it was as if Fall was giving us a big ol' kiss. So cool and brisk and invigorating! Ahh!

I just found out there's a local pagan gathering for the equinox, this is the fourth year for it. And since it's only days after my birthday, I'm going to go! Hopefully meet some other pagans and have a good time. To me the Equinoxes (is that the right plural form?) and Solstices have the most pull.

I know commonly, that the time for celebrating sex/fertility and such is in may and june, but this is my time of year for it. Robust, and invigorating is the way! Of course, it seems like every buck in the world is outside right now, looking to spread out all over the state and celebrate with any and every doe he can find.

The DSC are here now for the school year: They've never really experienced a fall and winter before, having grown up in Vegas and CA. They're already telling me how cold it is in the mornings. I can't WAIT for more.

Wombatclay I SOO agree about Autumnal, the season and the word. Ahhh, ti's like relief and invigorating.


Cari, I love the description of that ritual, such a great idea! I say go for it, Bella!

I cannot wait for apple picking and hay rides, I know that's more a late September/ October thign around here, but, I feel it coming and that's enough for me!
post #38 of 595
aweynsayl -- nope, never tried the chickens...however, less than a 1/2 mile away my good friend raises chickens (and goats and other farm animals) and I'm sure she'd give me as many chicken carcasses as I'd like.

I'd love to take a look at the chakra workbook exercise. I'll pm you with my email address...not that I mind ANYONE in this thread having it...but I know that these conversation threads are open to any and all who wander by.

I think my headache might be related to this shift in weather -- from hell-hot to fallish in a matter of like 36 hours. But I also think I am charging up mentally/emotionally. I had a good emotional cleansing at the last full moon and I think I'm storing things up to do it again this Friday.

But the tapping thing? That's totally on my 'gonna do' list -- I just don't know when.

teeny -- the apple harvest has begun here. One of the local orchards (that is always at our local farmers' market and has the BEST jellies and jams) has gala and honeycrisp apples right now and will have empire (reputedly great for making applesauce) in a few weeks. We're going to go to the orchard this weekend and get gobs of apples. One of our homeschooling foci for next week for my kindergartener will be apple harvests. And the boy LOVES APPLES, like almost insanely.

The same orchard does the traditional hayride, pumpkins, corn mazes, etc. staring 9/26 - 11/1. I'm so excited about that. Last night Theo asked me if I'd make him a pumpkin pie. Um, the child has never even tried pumpkin pie. But he said he'd eat it if he picked the pumpkin and I made the pie. Um, ok. I think all this fall weather is getting to all of us here.

Off to get the wee-girlie into a nap...

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

That's it exactly! Anyone else wrestle with this? I do, alot.

Yes, I know, tapping. And I am working on that in that way now.

But, anyone else feel that way? I had a therapist (long time ago, when in grad school, before even meeting my dear husband) who told me that I was suffering from 'fear of success syndrome' because I would *almost* get to my goal and then self-sabotage.

The older I get, the more I learn, the more wisdom I collect (I hope) the more I feel myself almost able to let go and really just explode into the person I am meant to be...the more I am afraid to pull back that veil and just LET GO!

And, obviously this fear of 'power beyond measure' is what constantly pushes me to believing myself inadequate. It gives me an excuse, you know? If I'm not even adequate to what's before me on a daily basis, then how can I possibly try anything else.

Oy! On to learn more.

I am STOKED about what it might mean for the winter. I'm good and ready for a cold one, for a change! Though, normally I'd be excited for lots of snow days... this year, they can just go somewhere else. I do NOT want school to go on and on because of snow days. Especially I do not want DS's school to have snow days when my school does not!

We have been having the coolest summer I can remember, too I think it has only hit 90, or even high 80s, maybe a handful of times. I am not complaining!

OK...I'd be excited if I knew how to pronounce it. Is it with the emphasis on the first syllable (well, first two run together really fast, lol), as in AUTUM...nal? Or is it au-TUM-nal? Does one even pronounce the N? :

and...what's black cap? It sounds horribly like this thing we have been learning about in Wound Care, called eschar, which is just grossifying.

Aside from that, YES, I love Autumn. Fall. Whatever. Why is it us Pagans come crawling out of the woodwork this time of year? I live in apple country, and I am just bursting at the seams to go apple picking. We go through several bushels, just eating fresh apples! :

Yeah-- me too. FI, when I grew up, "sucks" was very nearly as bad as the F word. Now everybody says it, and I still blanch hearing it out of a child's mouth. My own 8yo DS says it and I chide him for it. He doesn't think it's a bad word (and I guess it's not, anymore) but I tell him it sounds ugly and I don't want to hear it.
What else have you noticed? Not that I want to get off on a side topic or anything

It's YOUR celebration. I say YOU get to dictate where it's spent!

It does sound like a great ritual. It sounds like a great way to end a ritual, actually-- I'm envisioning one where you start it off on a more somber note, letting go of what you had, in some symbolic way (here is where you get to cry/scream/yell if you need to), then moving on to what you want to bring INTO your life (NOT in the way of men! but "other" abundances, like how you want to be-- confident, whatever), then do the dance-thingy as the raising-energy part. Put on some great pole-dancing music and go to town, all alone in your own room, with candles and everything! Then have strawberries and sponge cake for cakes, and champagne for ale, close the circle, and go celebrate your freedom!

Today I passed my 1st skills test, though-- cleaning and re-dressing a wound The teacher checking me off was generous, but I really only messed up in one place. I will not forget again!

It does exist. We get it here When I graduate, you better come visit me! And you can see for yourself. You have to come the week before Samhain/Halloween-- that's when the leaves change. People come here from all over to see the mountains change color. It's breathtaking.

New book-- just finished Lisey's Story by Stephen King. I love that man. I really have to write him the Fan Letter someday before one of us dies first.
I'm going to read The Mammoth Hunters (Auel) again, next. I read the first two back in the summer and I really should have kept going in the series. Then after that, Barbara Kingsolver and then maybe Into The Forest (Hegland) again.

Back to studying-- skin, hair, nails next. Who knew so many things could go wrong with hair?
