CANDLE SWAP! CANDLE SWAP! Let's do a CANDLE SWAP!

YAY, beemama!!!! What wonderful news.

Which makes me want to revisit an idea from way back in this thread. Let's do the candle swap Salvia mentioned!!! We can do little fat candles instead of tapers so they won't break. Has anyone done a swap before? How does it work the best? Would y'all want to do candles all on a similar theme (like healing, for self, earth, relationships, etc.) or tailored for each person? Would you want to swap with just one person, or with everyone else who wanted to swap? I should just stop--I don't really know how to do this well. Someone with experience reach in and help me out...

Of course, this is still assuming there's interest...

P.S. Thanks for turning a blind eye to my clutter, and for your nice words about my bigga boy!!!

Yay beemama! Hey, do you have a polyp in your sinuses? I had that.

Scotland- Has anyone ever watched the series MONARCH OF THE GLEN? I love that series. Don't know if it's still on BBC (i haven't had cable in a long time). I used to watch Monarch o t Glen while living in England.
While lying in bed last night, I realized that come December, I will have been back in the states for 5 years. FIVE YEARS! I can't believe I haven't been able to go back and visit my very best friend in England. That's it, I am going to visit there next year (at the latest).
Two places you HAVE to visit in England are:
*Glastonbury
*Avebury

So, who's coming with me?

(Edited to change the number of yrs i've been back.

I will! I also want to got ot the Isle of Mann! I was planning on going the summer of 2000 with one of my step-sisters, but I got married and moved away. She went with her sis two years ago. I *need* to go.

I am Irish, still have family there. It would be nice to go see them.

I would so love to do that! I've never ever been out of the country...actually until 3 years ago, I had ever even taken a real trip out of California!

Man, liz--sounds like you have lived in some cool places! And I've never seen that series but I do have cable. I should check and see if it is still on.

beemama: : I am so happy for you! HOORAY!

13moons: I needed that. I have to bring myself down. I get too caught up in stuff I have no control over. I need to stay focused on what I can do, and just let the other stuff go. (Otherwise I go nuts!)

I had some wildness happen in our neighborhood this morning. I was outside with the two youngest boys,(in the backyard) and they both had stepped in chicken poo, so they were freakin' out. I was getting them calmed down when someone in the block behind us and to the left started screaming. I thought they were making fun of my kids freakin' out. But then it turned to crys for help. So I call 911 and tell the police that something wierd is going on behind me. They cruise the neighborhood (we see the car) and I go out about 15 minutes after the car drives by (into the backyard) and I hear a gunshot! I make a mad dash for the house and tell the kids... NO BACKYARD! Craziness!

Ah, geez. That is so scary. I've had that happen before a few times...anyone who has been around these threads for more than a year might remember that the drive-by shooting at my house was the reason we moved last Spring. Doesn't help you let go of thinking about all the problems in our world either...I hope things are more calm and safe over there now. ((hugs)) And congrats on your 10 seconds of rain!

Mamaofthree- Yikes!!

Mama of three - how scary!

Beemama- glad you're ok

I'd love to go to Scotland, but doubt we could afford it.

Valerie- cool about your daughter

Heather, I forgot to mention something I do to help channel my feelings of hopelessness regarding BIG issues like the environment, consumerism, etc. I write a little column for our progressive community newspaper on natural family living. So far I've done articles on babywearing and cleaning with natural, home-made products, and alongside the AP content, there's a heavy dose of environmental, anti-consumerism, and simple living sprinkled in. I'm doing the reading anyway, just because I'm interested in those subjects, so I figured I'd write up my ideas to be able to reach more people. Just a thought--in reading your blog (which I love, by the way!), I've actually gotten a couple of ideas for future articles, such as how to collect and use graywater.

Yay beemama!

Mamaofthree- yoicks! We had a stabbing one block down last week (three people were injured) and a shooting a few months ago. Ithaca is usually pretty laid back but there is some wacky vibe going round I think. I hope the catch the people/figure out what was going on behind your property!

HoneyTree- I haven't done a candle swap, but I was involved in a yule ornament exchange. All the interested mamas put their names on a list and also put down how many ornaments they could do. Mamas were matched up, snail mail addys provided, and a "please mail by" date was set. So for instance I made 3 ornaments (a dark blue yarn circle with a silver spiral embroideredon top), sent them to three different mamas, and got 3ornaments back in the mail (a burnished metal star with a spiral tail, a crocheted snowflake, and a beaded star). It was a lot of fun, the only real theme was "yule ornament", and since these were ornaments they were pretty sturdy. I suppose short candles wouldn't break, but ornamentation on the candle might fall off?

I would be up to a candle exchange. I think the small candles would ship the best. I have the best idea too! So count me in!

man, i would LOVE to go to Scotland. and Ireland. and England. it's my dream trip. but no way i could go next year....well, maybe! i am already in so much credit debt, what's a couple thousand more *sigh*

but in reality, i'd still have to wait till ds is totally weaned and probably not co-sleeping anymore. wouldn't i? i know he's 5 but i don't want to force-wean. i am totally totally committed to his lead on this one. but if he's weaned and still co-sleeping, he'd probably be ok staying with his Nana (my mom) or someone, right? i can't see my mom letting him sleep with her, though. so it's probably a thing to do to wait till he sleeps on his own. which could be ages.

If we do go to Scotland next summer I'd be bringing dd with me...and since we're ttc#2 I might also be bringing an itty bitty. My dh is an Irish citizen (dual citizenship with the US) so if we did go we'd probably spend some time in Ireland visiting relatives.

The travel costs to Scotland are actually pretty cheap if you fly into London or Dublin and then EuroRail or local shuttle hop into Scotland.
