I need to start my preparations for Beltaine

Beltaine is arriving faster than I am ready for. I have looked at different rituals to get a sense of what I want to do but I haven't spent as much time as I'd like on the study of it.  Nor have I gathered up what I need for the ritual.  I must stay home tomorrow and start getting ready for it.  I've waited too many times until the last minute before celebrating the festivals and I'd like to be ready for it just one time.  Okay I'd like to be ready for it all the times but once is a good start.

I ran into my son's friend who lives in Norway now.  She's not going back until the middle of next month so I'll probably run into her again.  My whole social life exists at Walmart.  I had my Goddess/triple moon necklace on and I didn't try to hide it.  I really don't care if she sees it.  She's read this blog before so she knows I'm Pagan.  But knowing that she's a Tea Party devotee, going to rallies when she's not even allowed to vote here anymore pisses me off anyway, especially when she bitches about universal health care for people here while she whined her way into getting it over there (she hadn't had her resident visa yet.)

I hope we have good weather on Saturday night.  Otherwise I'll have to have my ritual indoors and burn the stuff on a later date.  I'm not sure I can handle a fire in the house.  Or at least another one.  I did set that potholder on fire once. 

I've been doing well with nightly rituals, enjoying them far more than I ever imagined I would.  I would like to add morning and noon prayers on a regular basis but I'm comfortable with just nightly rituals.  I've been winging it more and more for the morning and noon prayers as I normally do those more spontaneously.  And I'm cool with that, too.

Well, my bed is calling to me because it's lonely and needs me to snuggle under the covers so I'm off to do my nightly ritual and prayers and crawl into bed.



  1. Potholders don't grow on trees, you know. Don't burn any more!

  2. LOL! I'm a slow learner but I have learned not to set potholders on the burners and then turn the wrong one on. At least, I hope I've learned that.
