I'm Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Yes, I know I haven’t posted in a while. Once again, real life has interfered with my blogging. I had a great Yule and a Happy Birthday, but after that my life went straight to hell. Let’s just say that 2007 appears to be the year when my wife and I have to repair everything.

I hope that everyone had a happy Imbolc. We attended a local celebration where we got to meet a large number of local Pagans that I’d only known as posters on the Kentucky Pagan Forum. We planted seeds as part of the celebration, and it looks like at least one is germinating. We figure it’s the squash. The ground should thaw before it gets too big for the pot (holding the remains of our late lamented rosemary).

Yesterday, we celebrated Fornacalia. I realize that this sounds dirtier than it is. It’s the annual blessing of ovens (‘fornax’ = ovens, stop thinking ‘fornix’, you pervs!), and we normally bake bread or cookies (this year was oatmeal cookies). Naturally, since the name sounds suggestive, we have people who usually make lewd shapes with the dough. This year was unusually tame. The closest thing we had to a pussy was a fellow who made cookies shaped like his kitty cats.

It was a pleasant, calm get-together, though. The celebration was followed by people receiving 2007 Tarot readings (the January session was snowed out) while the rest watched Eddie Izzard on DVD.

Anyway, I hope to post more in the future.
