FF – I heart New Years

Actually, to be more precise, I love new beginnings. If I had to create a Facebook status for my relationship with New Years, it would be, "It's complicated." I touched upon the reason in an old post, so in the spirit (that permeates this time of year) of leaving the past behind, I won't rehash... Continue Reading →

MM – Ethical chocolate

I know everyone has strong feelings about things we should do to make our planet better. Reusable shopping bags instead of plastic, eating vegan, banishing GMOs, volunteering, protesting animal abuse, donating blood, donating time, donating money - after a while, the list becomes overwhelming (at least to me), and I end up not doing anything...

WW – Happy Secular New Year

I ordinarily don't make the distinction of "secular" when wishing all a Happy New Year, but given that this is a WW (Witchy Wednesday) post, and the Wiccan New Year is Samhain (Halloween), I figured it made sense to say, Happy Secular New Year. Since hubby and I have been together, one thing we've done... Continue Reading →

MM – Mixed emotions

I have a major case of mixed emotions. December and the accompanying holiday season has been a time of joy and sadness for me since 2001. That year, within a two week span, I lost my maternal grandmother and my father. Some years it hits me hard, and it's a struggle to maintain a cheerful... Continue Reading →

Throwback Thursday Christmas

Now that I'm feeling better, I'm making a concerted effort to take care of those projects I've been meaning to get around to. One of those projects is to turn the four or five plastic storage boxes of family photos into an online collection. To that end, hubby set me up with an external hard... Continue Reading →

WW – Witchy holiday greetings

My grand plan to create a unique spider ornament this year was dashed by a houseful of sick people. Thankfully, it could have been much worse, and at the moment, I'm the only one still hit fairly hard - the eldest is a bit better, and everyone else is well (fingers crossed they stay that...

MM – Misery Monday

This brief Misery Monday blurb brought to you by DayQuil, Kleenex, Tums, Ritz Crackers, and Halls cough drops (gee, maybe I should get one of them to sponsor my blog). If you hadn't guessed, Santa brought germs as an extra early gift for our household. Still, it could be much worse, so my whiny blog... Continue Reading →

WW – I’m a bad witch

No, not in the Wicked Witch kind of way, regardless of the WW in my post title (in this case, it means Witchy Wednesday). I'm talking about neglecting Sabbats and Esbats, forgetting full moons and new moons, and disregarding deities and demigods in my everyday life. I wasn't always such a bad witch. In fact,...

Happy Turkey Birthday, Mom!

Happy Turkey Birthday, Mom! Our Nor'easter delayed Thanksgiving feast is close to being done, and the house smells amazing. Today also happens to be my mother's birthday - we brought her up from Massachusetts this past Tuesday for a combined Thanksgiving and birthday visit, never imagining both celebrations would end up being the same day....
