May Pagan Circle - Page 3

post #41 of 212
The Pagan group I used to be part of had him do a lecture/workshop last year. I wish we hadn't have moved!

Anyone who wants to join-I'm on the MDC Pagan Circle. I added a few of you as friends. PM me on FB if you want to join the group since it is closed. If I did not add you and you want to join, just let me know. I didn't want to seem like a spambot and request everyone. lol.gif

What is with today???

My great-aunt died, my ex quit his job, cutting off $800 a month for us and insurance which we desperately needed. Then my dd's tsh came back at over 170 again. Jeez. I need a vacation from today. Something involving chocolate and vodka on a beach.

Yippee!  I am done with school for the year.  I haven't looked forward to summer so much ever before.  (I am NOT found of hot weather.) And got one of my grades back already B+.  I may have to wait up to a week for the other two but maybe not both professors are pretty with it.  Now I can catch up on my big pile of reading, get my flowers planted, think through my bucket garden and see if I am too late seeds & if I should buy some plants instead and I can knit.  I have a bunch of babies to knit for and maybe get some of my Christmas knitting finished since I am taking 4 classes, all heavy reading, in the Fall.

 

I hope everyone has lovely visits, sounds like fun.

 

You have a fun, busy summer planned! Yay you!

Oh, Lordy. I'm sorry. Hang in there hug2.gif

 

I had so much fun with witchygrrl! We ended up hanging for 3-1/2 hours instead of just lunch. I hope we can hang again sometime! M is due home any minute now...going to get off of here winky.gif Catch y'all later!

Yes, Maiasaura and I had a lot of fun (though some pretty awful coffee!). And I spent way too much money on my DD, but whatever. I can dole it out at apropriate times. i think we meshed pretty well:D

 

Yay, Indigo!

 

I'm so sorry, kitty witty.

Hooray for meeting online friends, for being done with schoolwork (I only wish!) and for Tamora Pierce.  I don't remember if I suggested her or only seconded someone else's suggestion.  You or your girls (someday)  may be interested in this site - co-founded by Pierce, a place for girls and women to share admiration of favorite female heroes and how they aspire to become sheroes themselves.  Pierce has awesome fans.

 

Hope you have a spectacular vacation, Dok. Sounds like a beautiful location.  Wish I *could* see it.

 

 

Love Penczak.  He is just so accessible, pulls things together in a way that makes so much sense.

 

 

I really want to read his new writings, especially The Witches Heart, since I loved his earlier books in that series.  Can't order it from out of the US yet though - that one I for sure would want to own.  And I'd love to hear him lecture - sorry to hear his mom is ill.

 

Just did a search and I can get a lot more of his books by interlibrary loan now than the last time I checked, a year ago -- woot!

 

Welcome Mamachicken!

 

I need to plant -- the long range looks safe for about 2 weeks but I'm not planting tomatoes out till May long or after. My seedlings are now outside during the day in nice weather, though.

have fun Maia!

 

kittywitty- ((hugs))... there really is something going on today, we got a bill from the state tax people saying we owe them money from 2008!  And a bill from the hospital saying they're turning us over to collections (even though I HAVE the proof of payment, and have been through this with them a few times already).  And yet another letter from the bank saying our car payment is late (again, despite having the direct deposit slip with the date they collected payment, which was BEFORE the dang thing was due).  And so on.  Here's hoping the winds shift and the world smiles on us all!

 

Happy May 5th all... DH brought home mango/orange juice and the fixings for a Mexican dinner so yum!  I needed a little happy after getting the mail.

Hey Ladies,

 I got a call from my bff and could use some hugs, positive energy and any prayers. She is going through heck right now, and so is her daughter. I am totally shaken up about it.

Thanks Gals!

Yay, I thought we did, too! Though, I have to agree, that was some righteously bad coffee. The food was good, though, I thought. And the way you talked about your dd, I think she'll just love her presents, especially if you drag it out orngbiggrin.gif Oh, and M said he does want to go Saturday, so LMK when you guys are coming, if you do!

DOK-- is that the same place you went to last year? I remember she posted pix last year, Aubergine, and the place was beautiful.

 

Plants-- I am worried-- our frost-free date was supposed to be like April 11th-- and I think we had a freeze last night. While I'm up north. I have so many plants outside now!! A whole container garden plus plants and sprouts in the ground. Dang. I hope they're alright. My ds is on his field trip, not at our house with the babysitter, so there's nobody there who could've taken care of this for me and covered them! I hopehopehope the plants survived greensad.gif fingersx.gif

I am having the BEST time so far! joy.gif All that trouble we had months ago, is just nonexistent now. M is being really accommodating, and I'm being happier and mellower as a result, so it's just going swimmingly love.gif
 

Clay, if you know you paid those things, and you have proof, don't sweat it. It's a PITA to prove it, or re-send the proof, but at least you have it, and it shouldn't be a big deal. I know I don't need to say SEND COPIES and not the originals!

Maia--sounds great. DH has a Medicine Wheel class at 10, and it'll be a few hours, but then we'll probably head out there after a quick bite. I'll give you a buzz and let you know what's up when I do.  Man, the food was good, though. Tonight DH, DD, and I had some really fab Mexican food.

 

A great day for me, but it's always a bit bittersweet, as it's the anniversary of my mom's death, 22 years ago.

 

However, as nothing bad actually happened today to, I'll take it. I wish everyone could have had such a great day; hopefully tomorrow will be better for those of you who had a lousy day today.

 

We should know if DH gets a second interview tomorrow. Please please please!

Just FYI mango/orange juice + coconut rum = super happy MamaChicken!!!

Wishing your DH luck!

 

M's mom died on Mother's Day 1999. He does not like Mother's Day now.

 

Yeah, gimme a call!

 

I am down 1.2lbs from yesterday, woohoo! I discovered Cabot Greek style plain yogurt. Nom!! I wish they had Cabot in NC! I think we have the cheeses, but not the Greek yogurt. I had that with fresh strawberries (can you beat 2lbs for $3.00? I think not!) and slivered almonds for dessert last night. It's going to be breakfast, dessert, and snack till I go home! lol.gif

Awesome for online meetings, school being over :)

I'm heading to an acupuncture appointment hoping this helps my anxiety. Off to make breakfast...still finding MDC very hard to load pages :(

Morning:)

 

Today is a beautiful day so I am going to get in the garden while I can.  Have to fence it off today my dogs and my pig keep stepping on my plants:(  Anyone have anything for the weekend?  Nothing here, just hope it's nice so we can spend time outside:)

post #56 of 212
Clay- Ugh! What a pain!!! Good thing you kept your receipts! hug2.gif

goodvibes.gif Aeress!

And hug2.gif to everyone who has had deaths on Mother's Day. That's not something to look forward to at all!

Other than piano, we don't have anything this weekend, thankfully! We're about to go to the coffee shop for breakfast, but that's about it!
post #57 of 212

I concur... yesterday was awful!  hugs to all who need them.

 

I've been using a very high-potency homeopathic remedy on my old lady cat.  She's been clearing stuff out nicely.  We had another visit with the crazy holistic vet on Tuesday.  Vet did some acupuncture and (I guess) some energy work.  In her words, we had sacred space for about 10 minutes.  Until the clinic cat jumped up on the table and dissipated it.  

 

Before that visit, old lady cat had just started to become re-interested in hunting.  She was watching kitten torture a baby chipmunk on the weekend.  On Wednesday (after the powerful vet visit), old lady cat found one of kitten's dead bodies (a big chipmunk) in the yard somewhere and brought it on the deck.  "Lookie what i found!"  Then yesterday, old lady cat brought a little chipmunk INTO THE HOUSE.  Still alive.  We managed to get it out safely but then last night, both cats were partaking in chipmunk torture together.  So not fair - 2 cats, 1 chipmunk.  Not sure what happened in the end.  But the remarkable thing is that old lady cat hasn't shown any interest in hunting since she became ill, about 2 years ago.  And now that I'm thinking about it... she's also not so hissy with everyone anymore.  Now if only she'd stop pee'ing outside the litter box in the house.  We're not over with the hyperthyroidism - her little heart beats like a canary's and she has little tolerance for heat because her metabolism is also as fast as a canary's.  But what progress with just a few little tablets in water and a whole lot of intention.

 

post #58 of 212
Wow, bluets! I hope it all resolves soon!
post #59 of 212

I'm doing my random, every few months, pop my head in thing. If anyone remembers me. lol

 

Many blessings!  i'm feeling nostalgic today and wandered back to MDC after barely being here since last summer.  My babies are getting big, my life is getting busy and I just wasn't wanting to spend time on mdc for a while. 

 

But summer is coming, which makes me think of the great summer camps we did before, and my sister is about to go into labor, which makes me think  of my own wee ones being born, and I'm just generally feeling wistful. <3

 

Hope everyone has been well.  I'm also feeing just spiritually ...not dead or empty really, just like ritual has gone on the back (farrrr back) burner this year.  Thankfully, there isn't the guilt associated with this like there was back  in the christian days, but a longing for what I've had previously.  

 

I started my own yarn/fiber dyeing business, my older two kids went back to school and this year just has been so different than previous years in my motherhood. Wow, I didn't really phrase it like that yet, but that's it.  This year my identity has been totally different. Even though my youngest (Bodhi!) is still at home, and 4 years old, this is the first year I wasn't unschooly sahm, with only ourselves to set a schedule etc.  we answer to the school system, I try to carve out business time at home, and I haven't had nearly the same amount of time with my friends as I use to, as they are all unschooly types and our social time was our KIDs social time. 

 

Well, that may have been useless chatter, but it was cathartic. Blessings, everyone. I'm going to make it a point to check in here every day or two, just for personal connection. :-) bb

Hello all!

 

I just wanted to wish you well. We have all been fighting a cold at our house. I thought we'd be done with it by now! I swear, we should have the immunities to keep us well for years to come after this cold season.

 

I've been distracted lately. One of my bosses is in a rehab hospital for people who have addiction/alcohol problems. I had no idea that she relapsed. She confides a lot in me-almost going into the realm of my being her therapist, but I didn't see it coming. She is my friend & like another mother to me, but it had been hard to see her every week for quite some time. (I clean her house) I have long been wishing to be free of the financial need to work there mainly to have some space from her, but now I feel terrible for her & her family. Her husband wants to divorce her. For now they still want me to work, but I have no idea what to expect when she comes home. I love her & wish her the best, but am now feeling guilty for my recent feelings. I know it's not my fault, but...still. *sigh*

 

I really didn't mean to be absent here for awhile & then dump this, but it's what came out when I finally had a spare minute. I really want to cry right now. I thought I was less emotionally affected than I am.

 

On a lighter note, happy mother's day to you all in case I don't get on here again before then!
