A Renewal

I had started this post over and over again on several days over a period of weeks. It keeps disappearing or gets trashed. I don’t know what is up with that 😦

I can no longer post over at danceuponstars.blogspot. The page will not load and I will be posting here exclusively. I have missed blogging and keeping up with everyone.

It’s only one month into the year and I have been busy as all get out!!! We moved in November and I’m still getting the new place all together, but it is coming along well. I’m loving the new place, well except for the cost of heating oil 😦

I’ve been working on my sunroom and it is coming along nicely. It is my favorite room in the house 🙂 I use it as my craft room mostly. That nook over to the side is going to be a reading nook. I’ve found the cushions real cheap at a store in salisbury and am looking for the fabric now. Or i might just get more bed sheets and sew them up. That would be cheaper 🙂 Can’t decide though.

My coven is turned 10 years old this Imbolc! I can’t believe we’ve been together this long. It doesn’t feel like it has been that long. And let me just say that we kicked ass in that ritual. I’m still reeling from the magick of that ritual.

I’m so ready for spring and I can’t wait to my garden started. The plan is for a bunch of us to pool our resources and have a big community garden at my house. The weather is nice today, but it did just snow the other night, so I’m not sure when we will get started. We are still deciding what we want to plant.

There are so many interesting things afoot for me right now, that I can barely contain myself but I don’t want to spoil them by speaking too soon!


A Sudoku Kind of Life? I Wish…

I really like Sudoku. It’s rather simple in it’s complexity and I enjoy that challenge. You know there are always going to be nine squares within nine squares and the numbers one through nine will always go somewhere in that square. Each line, each column, and each square contain those numbers, 1 through 9. You may not know how, but you know they always fit…

But life is not like that. And that really is okay.

Today my son’s Rite of Passage begins. Today, he finds himself in a sacred space with men who will help him to discover what it means to be a man. I’m so excited for him to discover who he is becoming and where he will take that. As my first born child when I held him in my arms for the first time, I was so overwhelmed with the task before me.

I look back on his childhood and hope that I gave him enough love, strength and freedom. I hope that my mistakes lead to a greater strength so he can overcome his obstacles.

My son is a good boy and I can see the great man that he will become. If nothing else, I am very proud of him!

I love you Alex
