Signs, small miracles and good music

After resolving to “get back to the basics” in my last post, I was determined to find my Circle Round CD.  At my house, this is no easy task as CDs and DVDs get piled up and I am the only one who puts them back in their cases.  However, in what is nothing short …

Kids’ Sabbats

My children are 1 and 4, so attention span is not a strength they currently have.  Getting into things and touching everything, however, are some of their strongest features.  So while we have been doing little celebrations for the Sabbats, they have not done rituals with me and our celebrations haven’t really been focused on …

Tonight! Tonight!

Full moon tonight!  Which means I started this blog 1 moon cycle ago!  And I still don’t have a hard core plan for tonight!  But anyone who tries a hard core plan with a 3 year old is a better mom than I.  Anyone who succeeds at executing a hard core plan with a 3 …

Slacker Paganism By Star Foster on Patheos

As a full-time working mom of 2 I love and appreciate this blog post!  I have nothing to add other than it is fantastic!  Here are some of my favorite parts but definitely read the whole thing: I have given myself permission to half-ass it. It is profoundly helpful and liberating. What I have done …
