Salvia- I saw! Thank you sooooooo much. I know I need to be patient and that slowly things will unfold but I am so not the patient type. So why do I keep buying properties that need years of work, I ask myself? Glutton for punishment or something. I have to say a truck drove past yesterday with music blaring and for a moment I thought the ick folk from our old home had followed us! It made me appreciate again just how lovely our new space is, even with the slow pace.
Rough towels? That sounds kinky.

Gardens~It is work, but it is good work, isn't it? Buying properties...well, it's good to be the protectors of a bit of Earth for a bit. I love your May Ribbon hoop! We have lots of wine barrel hoops around here, so I may steal your idea....hmmmm And, I know you are braver than I am, because you were so brave in your old neighborhood. But, I'm soooo glad you and the family are in your new place!

I can't sleep. I'm exhausted but wired. Does that make any sense?
There's no way I'm going to be able to go to church (UU) on Sunday.

No.. I think it's wonderful.. of course that could be because I've sorta done the same thing for my momma I think it's a GOOD thing, your children should not miss out on knowing about their grandfather and having things that remind you of him will help you talk to them about him.

My 'altar' (actually our family altar/nature table for the kiddies) is a dining hutch with two shelves above it.. the top of the buffet is the main altar, but the first shelf up has momma's photos and a candle for her. I saw a Dancing Goddess doll that I so want to get to put there (even though it's tagged as a mourning mother for her child) because it just speaks to me, no cash for pretties at the moment though

I am really looking forward to getting to know all of you lovely ladies, you seem to have a wealth of knowledge. I don't know many pagan IRL, and am working on getting to know some. But at the moment all of my energy is focused on the birth of my child so it is taking a bit of a back seat
Hey & welcome Mum to be : I'm also in oz, although over in Brisbane... lovely to have another upside down pagan with us! Hope you had a wonderful Samhain!

Hehe I could dry ours inside too. I'm actually going to get the owner to let me put up an undercover retractable line under the patio so I can never use my dryer except in urgent cases! We dry everything on the line.. I love crunchy towels.. very invigorating for the skin as for crunchy jeans, I just wad them up & give em a good rub together and then they're pretty ok

Beltaine was spectacular. : The kids and I had a really wonderful time (BeanBean: "I didn't have a good time when we had to LEAVE!" ) and Mike had a slightly less-fun time, but still enjoyed it. BeanBean wants to live at Four Quarters Farm.

i can't keep up with you guys!! sheesh! :

i think it's a perfect idea, a shrine to your dad. i kind of did that when my dad died, too. and i still put his photo and my son's dad's photo on our samhain altar. and my cat who died when ds was 9 months old. and my grandmas.

sage, are you feeling better?

honeytree, congrats!

battymama, i love your name! welcome! do you like bats, or are you batty?

who else did i miss? yikes. this thread is way too prolific

i went to a small public Beltaine ritual last night. i got to dance the maypole, AND partake of a spiral dance! it was a lovely ritual. i'm glad i got to go.

whatever happened to Barbara? the one who was trying to get preggers, who had a dh in iraq, and a carpy landlord?

Thanks, mamas, for the enthusiasm and congrats! I started a pregnancy journal. I think it will help me to focus on each day, being grateful for the moment that is and not worrying/spending too much time thinking about the future. So far all I have is an ode to my blueberry-banana-flaxseed smoothie this morning, but it's a start!

Do any/many of y'all read or dabble in tarot? I know the topic pops up on this forum every now and again, but I picked it up after walking further along on my pagan path, so to me it all comes back to the universal energies, the god and goddess archetypes, and the power of intention. Anywho, I did a reading for myself about a week and half ago, when I first suspected I was pregnant. And oddly, both my "motherhood" cards turned up (the princess and queen of disks), but in unexpected places. So I feel like some element of uncertainty or surprise is going to be part of this for me.

Man, I have been gorging on mulberries for the past week! They are among my very favorite edible signs of spring!

I often consider myself a thread killer...

I'm feeling a bit better today, thank you for asking! Now that I'm tired and exhausted my sinuses are fully blocked again.. ugh.

The weather here today was gorgeous! Its supposed to be nice for the next week so I hope I feel better so that I can get the rest of my planting done. The girls and I are going to go out into the forests with some gloves and bags and pick up all the garbage that somehow made its way into the forest. People disgust me sometimes how can they just throw their garbage onto the ground?
Since these forests give us so much peace and joy, we're going to show our love and appreciation and give back some peace and joy :

A lot of both i think

Congratulations Honeytree! I dabble a bit in tarot my self- just taking those first few tentative steps. But i have gotten a couple of really interesting readings throughout pregnancy. I think they are written in my book of shadows, which i have lost

I really need it too, i have only just started to really use it through pregnancy, and it has all of the information i need on herbs for the birthing and postpartum, and everything else. Sigh, i have looked everywhere, even in crazy only a pregnant lady would put it there places. Its driving me nuts.

Book of shadows- I just started one, well i is a folder but I have begun to collect herb, stone and other stuff.

I look at Tarot decks but haven't bought one. I would like to investigate it further though.

Well, I am all alone today, so I am planning to finish my coffee and head into the garden. : I spent an hr getting my herb bed cleaned up and it still needs some work.

Sage- glad to hear you are feeling better!

I am having one of the peppiest Mondays I've had in a while. Despite being completely exhausted from a full weekend, I am still chirpy here in the office. .

Got to dance around the Maypole. Enjoy a wonderful guided meditation. And share a wonderful, thought provoking time with friends. Saturday was a blast.

I was able to handle a day at the folks' house with good humor and rubber skin yesterday.

HT - I haven't pulled out my deck in a while, I might have to admit years. Hm... but I think it's time to dust them off, if I can even find them. Maybe it's time to start new and go deck shopping.

Honeytree!!!! I am soo happy for you! A baby! YIPPEE!!!

DoK: I think the thing for your dad is a wonderful idea... not "weird" at all.

The family and I went out to a farm on Saturday to see a movie and check out where we get some of our stuff (they go to the farmer's market, the co-op and are part of the CSA). The movie was great (The real dirt on Farmer John) and the farm is stunning. 7 foot tall holihocks, and primroses everywhere. The stars were so bright the Rowan actually SAW THEM and yeled and pointed. It was amazing. We saw a flock/herd of deer jump the fences and get to the horse feed... very cool. The farmer is so amazing. The whole thing was great.

been there too, sweets. i think mdc goes in cycles for me. there are certainly times i hole myself up here.

on that note, actually, i should have just asked this here... i'm looking for some home cleaning cloths that will feel wonderful and make my cleaning more intentful. any ideas? (please dont say microfiber towels or washcloths from target.) i'm dreaming of lovely floral cloths that look like something a garden goddess would clean her alter with.... you know?

i have a lovely avalon oracle deck that ds adores. (he's a moon boy, so he loves they all have the crescent on them.) isnt pregnancy always a path filled with unexpected twists and delights? well, mine certainly was any way. i do hear there are some people who coast thru it. boggles *my* mind. totally captivated all of my resources for the full nine months, that's certain!

i'm basking in this taurus new moon thus far! anyone else? started last night, actually. had a lovely "date" night with dh's best friend's new girl friend whom i adore. we watched "becoming jane" and drank a wonderful red (chosen because of the lovely wine goddess on the label... when i showed her the bottle she remarked that she'd just seen that one the other day and been drawn to it!)... it's been three years since i've had a close gf in the same town!

I knew someone who used to buy water soluble fabric, you should be able to get it from a craft of fabric shop, then she would stitch all over with a sewing machine, making sure that it overlapped over and over again. Then she would dissolve it, and would be left with a lacy cleaning cloth, she said they were perfect for scrubbing, dusting, any thing you could think of. You can also crochet or knit cleaning cloths. Of course you could just buy some pretty fabric, and either hem, over lock or cut it with pinking shears to stop fraying.

Can you tell i am a machinist

It really was nice out yesterday here too. I put some flower seeds in random places, mowed (sorta- we need a new mower so bad!), and rearranged some blackberry vines so they are a bit out of the way. There were birds everywhere and I saw my first butterfly (coulda been a moth skipper thingy though) of the season! The butterfly is a symbol of the Goddess for me so that's always a really neat thing.

Crocheted granny squares make brilliant cleaning cloths. And of course, you can work any sort of intent you like into something you're making. I used to do it all the time, they work up pretty quickly and the cotton, while a bit heavy when wet, is excellent for scrubbing. It's the kind of project even i (read: woman trapped under babies all the time) can manage (read: small and fast). You can make them fine and lacy, in just about any colorway you can imagine (even hand-dye them yourself later, if you like) and there are all kinds of patterns you could use (though of course, the basic granny square is probably fastest).

I love tarot. Been a while, though. I had a new deck that I bought just before Bella was born... it then promptly disappeared and turned up again after her birth. Quite an experience, that was. In any case, I haven't seen that deck (though I have seen pieces of it) in some time. :/ I'd kind of like to get a new one-- it's on my list. Tarot was actually part of my earliest experiences with fun pagan things. Although my preferred method of scrying is with a mirror, I have remarkable success with tarot and always have. As long as I'm comfortable with the deck, I do very well with it. I've actually got a set of blank cards with which I intend to create my very own tarot deck, but I haven't gotten around to it yet-- mostly because I'm not quite sure how I intend to make them (draw directly on them, glue pictures, use the printer, etc). It's the kind of project that I'd actually really like someone else to do for me, but with my input 100% of the way. So I could say, "I have this photograph which perfectly epitomizes the Ten of Cups; I found this image which I'd like to play a role in the Ten of Swords, and I think that the Ten of Pentacles needs to be hand-drawn," and then look at first drafts and accept or dismiss them, as required. I don't ask too much, huh? I think I could to it myself, but I think that it's one of those things that someone else could do *better*, and I'm all in favor of better.

Heather- That sounds like a great time!

A little update on me: I emailed my minister about my dad passing and she asked if I'd like to get together to chat about it. I'm going to take her up on her offer. I know I'm going to bawl my eyes out and I feel a little embarrassed about that but this is the kind of thing that ministers are there for, right?

DOK-- yep. absolutely, momma. that's what they're there for. hugs!

i *love* etsy! but it makes me dizzy. those sound lovely, though! i might have to go look. i always wind up finding something totally unrelated and wonderful. so dangerous! i wish i could knit or something. i can sew a bit by hand, but that's my limit right now. alas.

eilonwy~ i'm making my own goddess intention cards... i'll do it in photoshop and send them to the photo place to be printed, then slip them in little hand made baggies. (ps--go read tracy's new moon article!! also good for while trapped under babes. )

Today my boys figured out how to burn leaves using a magnifying glass. They were having a great time and then my little one came and told me what older brother did. He burned a beetle.

I made him write on paper how he thinks the beetle felt about being burned. Hopefully, he won't do it again after that.

Kleine-Bella went through a phase where she wanted to squish bugs. It really surprised me since she is gently by nature and now this spring, she is so excited and gentle with them. Sure, I talked to Bella and she seemed to get it, but it sure must have felt powerful, so she kept doing it. I felt awful, but now she tells Gillian why she has to be gentle.

Thanks for the support ladies. I am out of sorts, MIl is visiting and has developed walking pneumonia, plus my period was miserable, and my day in the garden was spent in the dr's office. Oh well, MIL is so sick, she needed to be seen.

Hi everyone. Just popping in to day I'm reading but don't have much to offer right now. Hope everyone is warming up, up north, and keeping cool down south!
