New Blog

I've started a new blog over at blog spot. I'm not leaving this journal completely, my intention is to put personal stuff here and informative stuff at the new blog. I'll be transferring over old stuff from this blog to the new one:

Domestic Witch

I feel kinda bad, like I'm being disloyal to LJ, but there are some things I like better about blogspot and many of my favorite blogs are on blogspot.

Trinty Lynn

A couple weeks ago, November 19th actually, I got to be apart of Raven's delivery of Trinity Lynn. It was one of the coolest things I've ever done. Completely different than when I had Angelus c-section and never even felt a labor contraction. Raven had Trinity Lynn al natural and being there was, wow. There are just no words for how precious it was! Robert was on one side of Raven and I was on the other and we held Raven’s legs and helped her push. It was surreal to look down to see "how things we going" and find Trinity Lynn's head was suddenly was there, sticking out. haha It was funny, I couldn't help but say "Oh my gods, it's her head!" .

Well to be honest, Raven didn't need much help; she pushed Trinity out in just over 20 minutes like it was nothing. She’s the strong, silent type. Raven probably could have done it all by herself but she was just being nice to let people help. I think Raven was worried that it was gross to watch, but it wasn’t at all. I even got to check out the placenta. Robert and I almost had the nurse convinced to let them take it home! I always wanted to have my placenta to use in a tree ritual for Angelus, marking the tree as his magical tree. Or the ya-ya's could use them to open a placenta bar and never age like the Aunts. hee hee

The photo of me holding Trinity is sweet because I can see the cord from the Binding of the Wrists ritual from Raven Blessing Way for Trinity Lynn and my "Mother's Ring" from Angelus.

From women we were born into this circle,
from women we were born unto this earth

Oh and to top it all off, I was the top of the phone tree! hahaha! I got to be the one to activate the phone tree when Raven gave birth. I felt so special.

Trinity Lynn was the sweetest shade of pink, Robert cried nearly the whole time and Raven just sat back like the beautiful Dark Goddess that she is and brought life into the world….

Love the holidays!

Thanksgiving was one of the best in a long time. We have a ton of fun house hopping, taking home leftovers and not doing any of the work! We ended up at Dad's until 1am playing scene it and poker and then when back over on Saturday to play his new Wii. Ed and I spent the rest of the long weekend on the couch watching all five Harry Potter movies and we finally finished the Order of the Phoenix book.

This Week..
Wednesday: Volunteering at Penrickton Center with Pagan Center
Thursday: Ornament exchange with Julie’s family.
Friday: Ed's work holiday party at the Atheneum downtown
Saturday Morning: Chop down the Christmas tree with Dad's clan and hopefully Julie's clan.
Saturday Evening: Pagan Center Kids Yule Party. Rick will make an appearance again as Santa.
Sunday: Christmas tree and home decorating!

Next year, no matter what Christmas does not start until after Thanksgiving. I must remember this!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are house hoping this year for Thanksgiving, I feel like Lorelei and Rory in Gilmore Girls' A Deep Fried Korean Thanksgiving. We have three dinners to consume, but I will not forgo the rolls! Instead of half eaten chocolate Turkeys, I’m giving our hosts scented candles. I picked up some American Made on clearance at Meijer. Mocha Latte, apple spice, warm caramel corn..yumm… they should smell savory.

I’d like to make a breakfast casserole for Thanksgiving morning to eat while we watch the parade. We had once last year Kelly made us and it was really good. But we might go downtown to watch the parade, those plans are on the fence.

1pm Mom’s Dinner
3pm Ed’s Aunt Zona’s Dinner
5pm Dad’s Dinner

We’ll spend most of the evening at dad’s planning Scene It with Joe and Julie. It should be a really fun day!

I did it!

Finally a dream realized! I've wanted to create an online source to share my knowledge of how to shop for American Made products, and I've finally got it started! Not so easy with a toddler, thank you Ed for giving me a free morning!

Please add my new blog as your friend and please advertise for me on your journal! HUGS AND KISSES!

Notes from the Sugar Queen

Peppermint Oil on the windows keeps away unwelcome guests.

Books that you need to read appear when you need them too. I'd really like to draw this ability to me. Like a premonition or omen, a manual to an undiscovered skill set, an answer to a question, whatever I need. I can do that. I'm officially putting it "out there", when I need to read a book, it will magically be there.

And red is my magic color

I am overcome with joy, hope and pride in America.

For the first time in 12 years, since I started voting, Obama talks and I actually want to listen. I've never voted for a president that has won, usually I vote third party and I haven't given two shits about anyone who has run. I figured that voting third party might strike a trend that we're not happy with that way things are. Did it work? Obama is different. Instead of knocking McClain down he built himself up. He comes from nothing, I can relate to that. I've never related to a president before, it sounds ludicrous, but now its reality. He talks and I feel hopeful.

And I'm so proud that race did not play a role in the voting numbers. The only demographic category that really stood out was age. That is so amazing.

Wow, just wow.
