Greetings everyone! :)
I've been away from the computer for the last week so my apologies for not starting a new thread earlier.
At last spring is here and I've been touring the garden centres trying to decide what plants to buy for the front yard. Haven't bought a thing yet but I am in the planning stages. :)
Hope everything is well with all of you.:D

I was stuck at Beltane as my son was going through a bit of a tantrum phase and as i am a solitary i had to settle for a walk in the woods with the bluebells around me, and a rather unhappy toddler!
I hope to be able to make more of a celebration of Litha, and i have lots of time to plan!
I have just come back from my cousins wedding and it was lovely but i know i will have a big gain on thursday when i weigh!! Nevermind, its only once a blue moon that our family get together, so it was worth it!
I am starting to plan our wedding soon. It will probably not be for 2 years but i want to have it on Beltane as it would mean a lot to me. My boyfriend is not religious and has no real idea of the extent of my beliefs, as i feel he would disapprove, or at least laugh at me. I would love to have a proper handfasting ceremony, but i think i need 2 years to convince him!
Hope you are all well!
Blessed be! :df:

Merry meet angelmouse! :wave:
Congratulations on your decision to get married. Maybe you could approach your boyfriend with the idea of a Celtic themed wedding since you could get still get hand-fasted but it may seem less pagan to him if presented in that manner.

Thats a good idea. He is coming to terms with my wiccan/pagan beliefs and i have shown him some things online and he is coming round!
Hope evryone is having a good week so far!

That IS a good idea. Celtic weddings are great.
Hubby and I never did an actual handfasting. We were HP and HPS at the Midsummer circle one year. (Which is essentially a wedding ceremony in our tradition). Circle was held two days prior to Midsummer. Two days after Midsummer we satisfied the gods of New Jersey at city hall with a secular marriage. Thus we celebrate our anniversary on Midsummer.

Thats lovely! I really hope he comes round! His mother is a very spiritual person and i am sure she will help me convince him!!
We have to start saving now and hope to get married in 2009! I will have lost all my weight by then too!!

I am ashamed to annouce a 5.5 lb gain this week. I went to a wedding and was expecting a gain but not like this! Hope i can pull it back soon !

Hope i can pull it back soon !
Sure you can. Just hop right back on your plan. This was just a bump in the road. We all encounter bumps in the road.

I was wrong. It was a gain of 6.5 lbs!!
Shocking result. I am off to deep water aqua aerobics tomorrow and i am going to try not to use the noodle as much so i will burn some extra off.
Blessed be :df: xxx

Merry meet, all! It's been so long since I've posted in here. I don't really like it being tucked away as a sub-forum, makes it hard to find but oh well. We know it's here!
Here's a link to an awesome wedding/handfasting site: http://www.dfwx.com
You have to dig around but there are so many beautiful vows and rites to check out and gain ideas from. Congrats on planning your wedding!
As for visiting garden centers and planning the front garden, I know exactly how you feel, Mauvais Roux! I just got back from the nursery and planted up a few new plants. I have such plans for the front of the house, including a new fence, an arch over the pathway complete with climbers and a gate. I think it's gonna have to be done in stages as it promises to be a big job. Still, as my husband said to day, I'm never happier than when I have my hands in the dirt.

Thanks for that Mummy Tummy! There are some lovely things there!! Will have to run them past my other half and see what he says!!

Geeze Mummy, you've become a real Brit!
Soon you'll be entering the Britain in Bloom.

Well i stuck to the plan word for word and had a fantastic loss of 7.5lbs!!! So pleased!!
I went and weeded the garden just now in the sun and its so peaceful and beautiful! My passion flower is looking great and i can't wait for it to start flowering!

I'm still stuck in the same weight range. Can't seem to lose anything. Then again I'm not doing much of anything. :p I did go to the local spirit fayre, and it was a blast! This one lady was amazing. Said I should keep trying anti-depressant meds. Also said I have nutritional deficiencies, though I knew that. But it was still a lot of fun. Got some really nice stones and a cedar native american flute. Still working on that one. :)

I can tell you from experience that exercise works as well as meds for depression. Of course when you're depressed you don't feel like exercising - so the combo of meds pus exercise should be a good idea.
Down another couple of pounds this week.
05-23-2007, 06:40 PM
Yah, I know that feeling. :) But I'm going to try some antural things for my depression. Synthetic stuff just doesn't seem to work for me sometimes. Seriously. So I'l going to try st. John's Wart, now that I'm not on birth control anymore. I'm also taking Essential Woman oil. Feels really weird going down your throat, but it's got over 5,000mg of Omega-3 plus Omega-6 and Omega-9. And it's organic so it should be good stuff.

Hey everyone! :wave:
I've been away for a bit in L.A. and then busy with work so I haven't been on the boards much.
I hope all of you have been well and are still around to pop in to chat. :)
Not much new with me except for a trip to the garden centre last weekend. I bought too many plants, as usual. :0
I managed to pick up some echinacea, daisies, lupins, poppies, snow in summer and some thyme for ground cover. I may try to get my herbs next weekend.
I think I have a social event to go to each Saturday from tomorrow up until July 14! :faint: guess I'll rest up in the fall -:lol:
