Being how it's already August here, I thought I'd get a jump on starting the new thread (mainly so I don't miss subbing to it and miss 3days of posts like I did recently lol)

For us down unda', it's Imbolc! Tomorrow we'll be making a big pot of potato & leek soup & bread rolls for dinner and a yummy custard for dessert. I'm feeling very run down so I don't think we'll do anything REALLY exciting unfortunately.

We went up to the shopping centre that happens to have the best fenced & shade cloth covered playground today, and I got a posh iced coffee and we sat out enjoying the beautiful weather for a long time. We did do a little something sabbat related... I've got the poops with yogurt being nearly 8bucks for the one we like (nice & thick with natural cultures and not tons of sugar) so we bought a yogurt maker! Maybe I'll set that up to go this afternoon so we can have our own homemade yogurt tomorrow I know we'll like it, as we used to have one but the kids broke it

Oh man! I was coming here to start the thread! LOL Hopefully this month I will actually show up. It has been NUTS here this summer. Some good nuts and some not so good.

Here is to a great August! :

Hello pagan mamas!

It's Lammas today here, so I'm working on a plan (nothing like waiting til the very last minute!). I think we'll have a veggie and tofu scramble for breakfast. That's a good start, no?

It's also Solar Eclipse Day! I think it's about over now. We didn't get to see much from NY, plus it was just a tad bit overcast here. But I watched through live streaming at the NASA site. I'll probably do a small lesson on solar eclipses with the kids and we'll watch some video later (they aren't up yet).

I'm doing this new thing (well, I used to do it all the time) where I getup early in the morning, do my morning ritual and housework before anyone is up. I really enjoy the quiet time to myself. Also, it's the dog days of summer here, so I try not to move much between the hours of 10am and 6pm----that means things like housework, laundry, filing, decluttering are best done first thing in the morning! I'm actually a morning person by nature, but I work evenings so I've lost my connection to the dawn a bit.

I'm working my pagan home binder and morning and evening rituals and learning about Getting Things Done/Zen to Done but I lost my focus on Pagan Camp. My plan is to read up on this weeks camp and do some divination work this weekend with my younger dd who is very interested in tarot and reading stones.

I'm finishing up my packing and then leaving for Body Tribal. I desperately need this, so I'm looking forward to it (even though ahving your period in the woods kind of sucks ).

My mom will be coming for a visit on the 9th (she's in CA) and on the 10th she's taking ds and I on vacation. :

I've been looking forward to this for months!! We are only going to South County, RI but we'll be close to the ocean. (well, not walking close)

I'm looking forward to relaxing at the B&B. I'm counting on this vacation to recharge my batteries.

Have fun Rynna!

There is a discussion about Kindles on the tail end of last month's thread (what on earth happened to July?) I have been considering a Kindle or Reader. There are a couple other eReaders I am researching... iLiad & Cybook are equally intriguing. DP is the gadget junkie but I may have to go with him on one of these. My dad read books on his palm pilot all the time.

it would definitely help cut down on the physical space my library takes up. I'd probably just stick to fiction, since I am a margin scribbler when it comes to cookbooks, craft books and gardening & history tomes.

Good morning everyone. We're back from vacation and I have so much catching up to do. But I wanted to pop in and say hello and Happy Lammas!

Merry Lammas to all.

Four years ago, DH and I were married on Lammas Eve and carried the party over into Lammas Day. We're continuing the tradition and are heading down to the boat club where we got married this evening to spend the weekend camping with friends who shared our circle four years ago and friends we've made since then. We're going to have a bonfire, do some drumming, spin some poi, play midnight freeze tag...should be fun.

DoK have fun! I am just over the border.

We are trying to get to Charlestown this month... Fantastic Umbrella Factory & Frosty Drew Observatory.

I thought the Umbrella Factory closed. My mom will be so excited if it's still open!

It was open in March, ummm maybe you should call first. I know they had been trying to sell it, may be someone bought it.

Welcome to the circle of crazy pagan peoples time4another! We've been pretty quiet the past month or so so this is a great time to join in... some months we talk non-stop and somehow there's another 2-3 pages every morning when I wake up!

eilonwy- Have fun! (woods and womanhood clash aside) I wish I lived close enough to a center to join in.... but I checked and 4Q is about 5 hours away. Poo! I enjoy the solitary kitchen witch lifestyle but wish it was a bit more optional, you know? Anyway... have a wonderful weekend and gloriously fun event!

And welcome back from your trip Burtsgirl. I hope it was relaxing and renewing. And have fun DoK... you and your little one are so deserving of a happy fun break. I hope you have a blast.

Ok, I'm positive I've missed someone, something, somewhen, but for everyone and everything :

And now I've got to go clean... or maybe prep the Lughnasadh bonfire... our storage unit contract expired yesterday so we pulled everything out and right now our itty bitty house is beyond full, and there are piles all over the yard under big blue tarps. And today is a holy day. AND my MIL and SIL will be arriving tonight or tomorrow morning. And my SIL has never seen our house (she's actually never met the girls either) so I'm a bit stressed. Oh, and Paco-dog just ate a box of crayons. Errrrr. I'm sure he'll be fine (though I should probably warn dh so the evening walk doesn't end with an "OMG he's pooping purple!") but now the living room throw rug looks like there was a massacre of crayola proportions. Which there was. So I guess we're doing the laundry too!

: Happy Lughnasadh all! May your fires burn bright, may your fields be full, and may your dreams be gentle as the seasons turn towards home. :


and that goes for Imbolc too!

Happy Lammas, everyone!! : i just love that jumpy smiley.

last night i took Smooth Move tea, for those of you who don't know what it is, see if you can guess from the name and i'm sure this is TMI, but i was up at 3am until something like quarter to four, with the most painful stomach cramps i've had in umpteen years. i was sweating, i was cold, my arms were numb, i thought i was going to die. everytime i tried to lay back down i had to get up again immediately. and i honestly don't think it was, um, that productive, considering the pain i was in. it's 10:30ish a.m. and i'm *just* starting to feel better. yikes, i'm tired. but we are going to the lake today (small beach there) so hopefully i will get to rest some.

happy holiday, happy holy day, happy vacation (i hate that word, though, has to do with word origins compared to "holiday" ) to all of you who are going away!

oh, cari, i'm sorry i didn't get back to you with that recipe. this fast has thrown me for a loop. i can hardly concentrate on anything. i am waiting for the enlightenment that lots of people seem to get with not eating
i bet, though, if you went to the Vegetarian Times site, they might have it in a search. it's their recipes that i use.

oh, welcome heather!

july CREPT by, for me. i am hoping, though, that these next two weeks creep by also. ds starts school on <gasp> the 13th!! of THIS month. with a mandatory orientation on the 11th, at 8-freakin-30 in the morning. and i start classes on the 18th. yowsa!
