Happy Happy Day All! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
Following my pattern, I seem to have a cold. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> But it's a minor sniffle/sore throat thing so I'm not too worried. We don't have any events today and I don't have anything planned, but we're going to do a lot of outdoor stuff...<br><br>
Our crazy goal is to have dh finish wiring (45 minutes ish). Then plant the last two apple trees. Then clean up the yard and pile the construction debris. Then build a new fire pit and burn said debris! If there is any time left we'll start the coop, and I may scout out a spot for a larger outdoor altar. It may not be traditional may day stuff, but it IS outdoor/fertility/beauty related.

Happy Beltane! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/flower.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="flower"> and thanks for all the birthday wishes on the April thread.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I haven't exactly decided on my plans for today. I had a nice evening with a friend last night, and the family is giving me a little party tomorrow. I think a quiet day at the farmer's market and in my garden would be nice, but most important of all, I should decide on cake.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat"><br><br>

Happy Beltane, everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
We're having a lovely day here! Just got back from the garden centre where we picked up a variety of plants for what will be our indoor homeschool botany area. I'm so stoked! We're especially excited by the strawberries and cherry tomatoes, which we can already see growing, and the basil which is making my whole kitchen smell yummy. Hopefully this afternoon we'll get everything set up, re-pot some of our new plants, and plant some seeds we picked up earlier this week.<br><br>
Wolfcat... Thinking of you and sending beautiful birthing vibes your way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
femme rouge... Happy Birthday!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> I hope it's filled with magic and joy!<br><br>
There's a whole bunch of stuff I wanted to comment on from the April thread, but I lost my place along the way so I'll just leave it at that for now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Well, to update people, I ended up in the ER for MSG intolerance/adverse reaction last night. I am fine, they checked me all out and are pretty sure that I was having a reaction to msg. It was scary but I am fine now. If you could send me a little extra energy, I would appreciate it!

Aeress- ack! Big huge (but gentle on shaky recovering systems) energy winging your way. How scary, but I'm glad you're pretty sure what caused it and can deal with it from there.

yay for today! Today is my first wedding anniversary! we have been together 6.5 years but just got married a year ago today! too bad i have bronchitis. lol. so we are just chillin at home. it is lovely outside, i got 3 loads of laundry done, and even got a nice surprise. the neighbor kids did may day baskets!. it had some cheese popcorn and some little pieces of chocolate. i have just started my improvements to my diest so i had been craving some carbs. it was just enough to satisfy without wrecking it all up. they even banged on the door and ran. such fun!! made me smile.<br><br>
last night i made chowder for the first time. i know i got the idea from someone here ( you had the recipe posted lol). i looked everywhere for the recipe and couldnt find it so tried out my own. it was cheesy potato chowder with ham. it was so yummy. i even made some rolls with garlic salt on top. ok, now i am going to go heat up leftovers lol.<br><br>
so feeling pretty good today. i think the TM makes a difference. seeing my intentions laid out like that for me everyday really resets my mindset. i even had salad for lunch instead of mac-n-cheese. yay me!

Off to swim lessons with the boys... we spent a lovely autumn day outside relaxing yesterday but today it's go go go. Swim lessons.. a visit at the grandparents for the boys, and cousin L's birthday party. Which is sure to be ridiculously overdone, as her mother is just like that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> But we'll soldier on <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

It's super windy outside, so my flowers are going to have to wait to go into the ground. I think I'll bake up some yummy dessert for after dinner.
