New month is here.  Can't believe I'm actually starting the February thread!

 

Happy February to all.  Be safe and Be Happy.

Maia- We can't do propane in an apartment.  I don't think there's a need to fill the bathtub, etc.  Things should be back to normal by Thursday.

The only thing I worry about is losing electricity (in regards to heat.)

Thanks for being concerned.  love.gif

Be safe.

I'm back!!! We've been having internet issues, lately, so I missed a lot of the last thread. Hopefully, it'll all be resolved soon. Plus, we have major sickies over here. First my son, then my daughter. We were supposed to have a weaning party for my daughter on Imbolc, but now she has the flu. We'll reschedule it, but I thought it would be special to have it on Imbolc.

 

Major snow on its way here! I say six more weeks of winter!

I'm at work still, and I have a meeting at noon, but then I get to go home. Hopefully, my school will cancel tomorrow so I don't have to feel bad about not coming in. Many of the area schools are letting out early to beat the worst of it, including my DH's.

 

I can't believe it's February. It's my DD's half birthday today. I can't believe she is 2 1/2!  A blessed Imbolc everyone!


Come ponder with me about food!

So far, so good weather wise. Tonight into tomorrow is what I am concerned about. I am going to fill some jugs just in case. Of course, if we lose power there isn't much we can do, but we should have heat.

Happy February!  Imbolc, the lunar New Year, and my sweet boy's birthday, and that is only the first 3 days of the month!  

 

Hope all you Easterners are safe and warm.

 

Hugs sweetsunshine! I hope with you that February is a better month.

 

Hi revolting!  Sorry you and yours've been unwell.

 

I have some cream to skim and some cupcakes to bake.  And my new course arrived and I can't wait to dive in.  I don't officially start till the 15th, so I have a great chance to get ahead.  I have till mid-June to finish and I want to be done by Beltane - now there's a resolution for you!

 

I am not taking my youngest son with me when I volunteer at his brother and sister's youth program tomorrow night. It has worked out up till now but there was a clown as part of the program last week and he laughed and  just vibrated non-stop for the first half of the program and then melted down in full blown wailing when he didn't get picked to assist with a magic trick.  I forgot that he was a clown for Halloween.  I guess the excitement of seeing a(nother) real live clown put him over the top? He was VERY disruptive bag.gif and I don't want to put any of us through that again.  I hope dh will be available to stay home with him.

Well, we survived the first part of the storm.  PArt 2 is approaching soon - and is likely to be much much worse just looking at all the colors on the moving weather map.  We declared our own snow day (The joys of not teaching).  I emailed our research staff and suggested they use common sense when they were contemplating their plans for the day.  It's slick out there.  I've heard that the main roads are ok but parking lots are skating rinks - as is our own road.  I haven't heard the usual traffic today.  And just a few minutes ago, I got word that our daycare/kindergarten was closing at noon.

 

Aubergine - in what program are you enrolled?

 

Stay cozy, warm and dry!

Yay for a new month!

 

No snow up here... but I'm stuck at home anyway: kidney stone again.  I'm doing everything I can to avoid a trip to the ER...

 

No celebration for us... I'm not able to stand long enough to cook or anything... Might celebrate later when I feel better.

 

I'm trying to find Gluten-Free Tamari... there's only regular Soya Sauce at the grocery stores... Might call a friend to see if I can borrow some of hers till I find it. Chineese New Year calls for a nice styr-fry and fried rice!

ooh Val that sounds like a great idea for the chinese new year! 

 

Hip Hip Hooray for February!  January is closed in my book - thank you very much. :D

 

We're bracing for blizzard conditions here... already shovled out 6" this morning and we're expecting at least another foot today, possibly 2.   We're stocked up and crossing our fingers for the power to stay on while this goes down.  Schools are closed for tomorrow and now its a waiting game to see if my work will be cancelled too.   Even if its not - I might just take a day to avoid driving & going out in that insanity.

 

Sunshine - I didn't get to comment sooner, but *hugs* m'dear as that is a tough loss.  I hope you find peace and your friend finds peace with her decision as I am like you - I wish for friendships, love and etc to transcend differences.  Seriously why can't we all just love each other for all our uniquenesses (i'm not sure that is a word...).

 

ahhh time to switch to a cup of tea since my coffee is out. ...

I had forgotten. I lost a friend, too-- back when I was about 2 years sober, I clicked immediately with this woman in AA. She and I were the same age, liked the same music, movies, laughed non-stop. Differences: she was Christian, and I'm Pagan, also, she was HUGELY depressed, so much so that she was on med roulette all the time, and crying all the time. One day I noticed she was always seeming to be "busy" when I called, and she hadn't called me in awhile. I asked her about it at a meeting, but she just said she'd been busy. That kept going on, and going on, till finally I had to face facts that she was dissing me completely. I broke down and cried, at the end of a meeting one time, and asked her PLEASE won't you tell me what's going on? And she didn't. I never did find an answer. The only thing I could figure out was, she'd gotten this hardcore bootcamp rigid sponsor, and was working the steps really closely with her, and the sponsor told her not to hang with me because I'm a bad influence. Or something. That was 14 years ago and I never did find out. But I was heartbroken for a long, long time.

Oh no, Valerie!! Ye Gods, I hope you pass it without much discomfort. I hear those are the worst next to childbirth. Hugs, and try to rest, hon.

 

Gluten-free tamari-- I guess that would be the same as wheat-free? They have that all over, here. I bet you can find it online if you can't find it locally.

I doubt it will pass. I tend to make pretty big stones... like 3/8" and +  No way it can go out naturally. I have a 1/2" one in my right kidney that doesn't cause any problem, it's just there. But I keep having painful stones on the left side that I get crushed by ultrasounds, get a clear X-ray, then grow a new one. greensad.gif

Ouchy! I am so sorry. I hope that is cleared up asap.

 

So happy it's Feb already. I see the first flowers outside.

 

I think I might cry if there was snow now. It's sunny clear and cold here today.

February, so glad your here!!!

 

I was hiding out the last few days of January, so over that month and all this snow and yucky Winter weather has me down. 

 

I hope everyone who is in this storms path is safe and stocked up.

 

I hope everyone had a great weekend, hugs if you didn't.

 

Today I am taking care of a sick DD and a sick pig:(  DD needs plenty of fluids, pig needs a shot.  Life on the farm!

 

Have a good day.

Yay Hurray It's Feb-ru-aR-AY!

 

We have a moderate smack down of snow thanks to "storm part one"... more coming.  The roads are horrible and they're asking non-essential driving be avoided.  So of course I either need to change our Imbolc meal or make the grocery store "essential".  LOL  Though honestly, what I'd really like is dinner out at the china buffet.  MMMmmmmm.... dumplings!  And hey, dumplings are even kind of Imbolc-ish since they're "hiding" veggies under a "snowy white" cover right?

 

Wheat-free isn't always gluten-free... it's a bit annoying since wheat is now one of the allergens that has to be listed on labels and relatives/friends often assume that it's okay for dd1 as long as there's no wheat.  It seems like barley/malt is a much more common "hidden" gluten.  It seems to be in all sorts of food you'd never think of... like, most crisped rice has malt.  So crispy rice cereals or chocolate bars with crisped rice have gluten.  Not fair!  lol  San-J makes a nice organic tamari that is gluten free.  They used to have it at Wegmans but recently I've only found it at the co-op.  It's a well known brand though so it may be around!

 

Sunshine- big hugs.  I'm sure the relationship was more to her than "just religion", just like it was (is) more than that for you.  I'm sure she didn't make this decision lightly, and maybe she's even hoping that her actions will "bring you back to the fold".... not a lot of comfort I know, but maybe, with time, the two of you will reconnect.  She has probably heard a lot of not-entirely-accurate info about pagans and it may take a long time for her to accept that she has been close to one.  Sort of like any "coming out"... some people need a loooooooong time to realize that there aren't cooties or guilt by association or anything.

Hello everyone, it's a long time ( months) since I joined this group and introduced myself as a newbie. I am happy to say that we are well and truly on our way down this wonderful Pagan path and I am just so grateful that we are. We have met lots of Pagan friends and I'm really connecting with the Wiccan Path.

 

Imbolc is bringing us thoughts and indications of a significant change in our lives. I have lived in Canada for 14 years and now we are debating a move back home to the UK. It makes no sense whatsoever in terms of finances, employment etc but does so on an intuitive level ( family especially). Still,  I'm completely nervous about finding new friends and starting over....

 

Happy February!

Thanks everyone for the hugs and understanding. I'm still pretty much in shock about my former bff. I also found out yesterday that my mom finally "broke the news" to my dad. Apparently he hasn't really had much reaction yet. My cousin said he seems in shock and worried if I am ok. Better than the furious response I received from my mom and (now ex) bff, and that I expected from him. We shall see what comes about. The rumors are spreading back home and I can see the time to become fully "out of the broom closet" is quickly coming. Right now I am trying to focus on tomorrow's ceremony. I need to prepare a little bundle of things from my past that I want to throw in the fire, symbolizing that I don't need to hold onto the pain they carry and I am letting them go. I haven't slept really for three days and have felt sick when I tried to eat, so I am hoping to eat and sleep well tonite. Fortunately this storm has given me tomorrow off from work. I also have Thursday off! Yay!

Hugs for sure. I half expect many people not to "get it" but when it's a close friend of family member AND they sever ties, ughhh. How sad. Hang in there! To thine own self be true, and stuff like that. flowersforyou.gif

sweetsunshine, here's hoping that the ritual helps you find some clsure and peace, and readies you to move on!

 

I wish I understood why people have to freak out over something so personal as spiritual/religious beliefs. Many hugs to you.

Thanks, witchy. I asked Margot Adler about it and she posted this quote.

 

I think you have to understand why people like your friend are saying what they are saying. It has nothing, nothing to do with you. Here is an amazing quote from Carpe Jugulum by Terry Prachett, and I think if you think that your friend and your mother and father have this flame that the Witch Granny Westherwax is talking about in this book, you will have some insight. In this passage, the witch is talking to a priest about God. What would it mean if you really believed your God was real:

“Now if I’d had seen him, really there, really alive it’d be in me like a fever. If I thought there was some god who really did care two hoots about people, who watched ‘em like a father and really cared for ‘em like a mother,…well, you wouldn’t catch me sayin’ things like ‘there are two sides to every question’ and ‘we must respect other people’s beliefs.’ You wouldn’t find me being gen’rally nice in the hope that it’d turn out al right in the end. Not if that flame was burning in me like an unforgivin’ sword. And I did say burnin’, Mr. Oats, ‘cos that’s what it’d be. You say that you people don’t burn folk and sacrifice people anymore, but that’s what true faith would mean, y’see. Sacrificin’ your own life, one day at a time, to the flame, declarin’ the truth of it, workin’ for it, breathin’ the soul of it. That’s religion. Anything else is just…is just bein’ nice. And a way of keepin’ in touch with the neighbors.”

MO3: why not do your imbolc activities on the full moon instead?  that buys you almost 2 weeks of recovery and rest (and planning) time :)

 

sunshine: blessings to you for a fulfilling ritual!

 

i did a variation of an imbolc soup - no leeks so i used the last 1/2 onion in the house, some bok choy, meatballs, lamb broth (by accident and which i'm not enamored with), veggie broth, diced canned fire-roasted tomatoes.  i made a GF variation of Irish Soda Bread crossed with Kiva Rose's Golden Flax bread - flax meal and almond flour, a smudge of caraway seeds, a small handful of raisins, egg to bind it all together.  the soup was ... edible.  the bread was... missing something.

 

daycare/kindergarten is officially closed tomorrow.  so.... SNOW DAY!  again.  kindergarten teacher has promised homework.  yay!  we need something different to keep this very energetic kindergartener-clone trooper-lego builder boy busy, especially when it will be bone-chilling cold tomorrow too.

School is closed for us today (thank goodness. Was NOT happy that they didn't close yesterday.)

My mother was supposed to move yesterday but driving was awful so we had to turn around and go back to my house.  She'll have to wait until Thursday or Friday.

 

Still waiting for ds's school to contact me with a new date for the Team Meeting. 

 

We are drowning in medical appointments.  Roo is going to miss a LOT of school this month due to his appointments (with these med appts, you get what you get... You can't tell them what works best for you.  It's 'take it or leave it.'

Didn't get much by us, though the ice was bad. Hubby said the road seemed ok.

 

Sweetsunshine- thinking of you!

 

Happy Brigid's  Day!- We had cinnamon rolls- It seemed fitting. I am planning roast chicken for tonight. It wasn't what I had planned, but weather didn't allow me to get the ingredients I needed, so alas, roast chicken and veggies it is.

I was also planning to clean the hearth today, but hubby did that Sunday night. So, kind of "eh" for a ritual. Incense and a cleanse will have to do.
