Second Moon – Full Moon (For Real)

Monday was not a fun day.  Well, there were moments of fun, particularly at the end when Weretoad and I started to watch an adorable anime series about a cat named Chi.  Otherwise, it was not a good day.  I don’t feel like going into it – at least right now – but I wasContinue reading “Second Moon – Full Moon (For Real)”

Second Moon – New Moon

Last night found me beginning a new lunar cycle with my weekly retreat.  Although my decision to avoid social networking, games, and the usual entertainment kind of annoys my husband (simply because he wants to enjoy those things with me), I find the escape refreshing.  I accomplish much during those hours – including catching upContinue reading “Second Moon – New Moon”

Fun Things

Back from Ireland

I’m back from Ireland, readers!  Weretoad and I returned to the US Friday evening and have been recovering ever since.  Although my husband became ill, we had a fun time and it was a bit hard to return from a green isle with blossoming flowers to a snow storm in Update NY.  I must admit,Continue reading “Back from Ireland”

A New Adventure

In my last post – one that I thought about for awhile before posting – I credited the work of Brian Jacques for inspiring me to go on adventures in the real world.  Reflecting on his influence once more inspired me to go on an adventure.  So…. Weretoad and I are going to Dublin tomorrow!Continue reading “A New Adventure”
