52Weeks #1 – Just a Little Late

Last week I was supposed to post about where I see myself going from here, where will I be in the future. I have to admit, I can’t really see too far ahead anymore. It’s not that I don’t want to, or that I don’t have dreams and wishes for the future… I just don’t want to get those old hopes up too high and see them fall, smashing my heart to pieces again.

So, for now I’m seeing only as far as the end of this year.

It’s got to be better than last year, even though I know things are going to get worse financially and there’s going to be a lot of hard work ahead, getting my own writing back on track as well as putting out the Belfire line. I know there’s the possibility of a new home, but I also had that possibility last year, so I’m not holding out for it. I know in one way I’m looking forward to seeing Draco graduate, but in another… it means in September, both she and Artemis will likely be off to school somewhere.

My children are grown ups this year… Artemis will be 19, and Draco will be 18 in October. It’s been 20 years since I lost the twins. Time has gone by a great deal faster than I’d ever expected it to, and I’m certainly not where I thought I’d be back then. Looking forward that far? Boggles the mind. Seriously.

Let me get through to December without completely crashing, and I’ll say cool. <|;-p

52 Weeks in the Blogosphere

Last year, over at jodilee.ca, I did the Ten Weeks of Blogdom challenge, which was a take off of the Ten Days of Blogdom (or maybe Blogging?) meme on Facebook.

I got through it, I enjoyed the heck out of it, but I slacked off seriously after that. Since I’m doing numerous, personally strengthening challenges this year, I thought this one could be morphed into a year, and would work well here, too.

So that’s what this is – 52 Weeks in the Blogoshphere. Here, I’ll be posting once a week, something pagan, spiritual, healing or food related most likely. I have the other blogs as well, both Morri’s Moon and Into the Mirror. They’ll have other sorts of posts, if you’re interested.

If you would like to participate as well, leave a comment below (before the end of February), and we can all troop around and read each others’ posts.

Litha Delayed

We’re having issues with the images, so we’re expecting to be delayed at least until Friday.

The girls have done me proud, really. Rhia’s story is amusing and she left enough of a hook at the end to move it forward into Lughnasadh. Care’s coloring page is pretty darn good.

Now if I could just get it to lay out properly. ;)
