Thank you!

Big "thank-yous" and otter-hugs to all the well wishes for me and grey_twolf !  We are thrilled and more than a little terrified at the volume of what we have to do in comparison to the time we have in which to do it.  Exactly nine days exist between Grey's last day of work at his current job (January 23rd) and his first at the new job (February 2nd).  I feel obligated to point out that Murphy's-Law-Magic is in effect here, as I'm unsurprisingly heading up Brighidshaven's open circle for Imbolc, which is to include the blessing and presentation to the community of my newest godsdaughter.  I very nearly committed to heading up a discussion at the local Pagan Moot on the 2nd, to boot!  Many apologies, heartdancer , but I'll be right there for the moot the following month, promise. 
Mmmm....

I DEMAND DANCING IN THE STREETS!!!

My wonder and delight, love of my live, the incomparable grey_twolf has accepted a job in the area and will soon be moving to this verdant commonwealth!!!!

Further details as they arrive! 

Please note that tears of joy on a male supervisor in a large government office wear better than you think they would.

A shift of focus

My love of cooking tends to wander from one flavorprint to another. I've been floating in the Carribean for a long while now, but suddenly I'm obsessed with German food and cuisine from the rest of central Europe and Scandinavia. I wonder if my family would even try gravlax...

This is why...

This is why I do not approve of Thanksgiving dinner at ridiculously early hours.  We had ours today at 12:30.

Up at an absurd hour, rushing to get everything on the table in time, way too much food, home for a long nap, now cleaning to have friends over tomorrow, it's 11pm and I want a pizza so terribly much that the cats are starting to look like pepperoni and cheese...

Throw the crib door wide...

This works as all I wanted was a rock... to wind a piece of string around. Everybody wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

Book meme, always like this one

I got it from ocymvio who got it from drakematrix who apparently got it from several people all at once.  

* Grab the nearest book.

* Open the book to page 56.

* Find the fifth sentence.

* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions if you want to.

* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

The Book: Chocolate Epiphany by Francois Payard with Anne E. McBride

Page 56: Recipe for flourless chocolate cookies

Sentence 5: Place a rack each in the upper and bottom thirds of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  



Well that couldn't have been more dull.

Grrr...

I hate this Mercury retrograde period already.  If it isn't one thing, it's another and I swear I'm speaking French to people without even realizing it, or I might as well be.  Quelquefois, je pense que je suis trop fatigué pour continuer.  J'ai besoin d'une semaine dormant.  Alors, une semaine sans tousser soit grande aussi bien. 

Yes, I'm sure it's wrong, but it's been a dozen years, donnez moi some credit, will you?
