Of Full Moons and Cookies

Posted Thursday, June 16, 2011 by Kally83
Welcome Strong Sun Moon! A fabulous lunar eclipse was part of the festivities, unfortunately there was no seeing it up here in the Northern Hemisphere since it happened during the day.

I'm working on Bean's birthday cake this week (can you imagine he's going to be a year old!!). It's going to be an elephant but I needed to make the ears and trunk from cookie dough. Being the intuitive witch I am, I made a full batch of dough despite only needing a small amount for the cake.

Full moon + boatloads of leftover cookie dough =


Too bad these don't freeze well! They'd be perfect for cakes and ale :)

I know he never reads my blog but I'd like to wish Boo a very happy birthday today. He does so much for our family and I can't express how thankful I am that I'm able to walk through this life with him.

PhotobucketSo much has been going on lately, I barely know where to start.

I made it through Meatless May and have continued on into June (and pretty sure I'll just keep continuing on and on). I feel really good and I've even lost a couple of pounds!! I'm finally at my pre-pregnancy weight so I'm feeling really happy about that! Unfortunately, having babies means my hips have widened so certain "skinny" jeans that I've held on to are never going to fit again even if I continue to lose weight. I'm ok with that. I wasn't at first, but seeing the shape my body is now, I'm actually quite happy with it :) Also, seeing the struggles of some of my friends to lose their baby weight, I have no right to complain whatsoever!! I'm proud of what I've managed to accomplish.

If you don't already follow PaganDad (also the creator of The Pagan Village and The Pagan Household), you should be. He has such fantastic ideas for raising little witchlets in our faith. He's put together Pagan Summer Camp (in response to all of the Vacation Bible Schools out there). So much fun!

I'm going to be making a real effort to post at least a few times a week here (though I'm definitely not promising daily). I miss blogging! :(

This and That

I'm sorry it's been awhile. With summer being here I've spent most days outside with the boys and am usually so exhausted by the end of the day, I never take the time to write.

Life has been sort of stressful lately too. Due to unexpected circumstances and poor planning on our part, finances have been REALLY tight so I've had to watch our budget to the penny (which I probably should be doing anyway.) The whole summer is going to be pretty tight but hopefully by the autumn things will be back on track.

I'm hoping to get back to posting regularly...I have plenty to write about it's just sitting down and making the time to do it!!
