My awesome son is home from Army basic training all graduated and in tip-top shape. Isn't he a cutie!? Oh, please try to ignore my wispy "do" - I had a long hard morning of baking and getting ready for his belated 21st birthday/coming home party! There are no words to express how proud a Momma I was seeing him at graduation. My heart was in my throat the whole time. I'm a very patriotic person and seeing my son in uniform, marching across that field and knowing what he has gone through and accomplished in the past 3 months was close to overwhelming. Since he's been home, he has been a good motivator for me in the early mornings! I'm up at 4:30 and doing at least a mile walk before heading to work.

Spring has popped up and my yard sure does need some tending! So far, Son and I have planted pansies and put in new mulch in the front flower bed. I have catnip and castor oil plants popping up in my planters, too (thanks to Carolina!). Which reminds me - I need to check on the mandrake that I've had soaking in the might be ready to put in some soil, too!

So...I keep getting "christian-type" emails from a few friends and certain family members at my work and home email. Do any of you get those still? And, no, most of them to not know I am Pagan - only a select few. I don't advertise it one way or the other. I've contemplated sending them a really nice email asking them to not send biblical humor and/or christian type emails to me....Or, should I just ignore it. I am not going to receive a miracle if I forward this or any email to 8 people! I don't send them Pagan emails, or Witch humor. ~shrugs~ Maybe I should, or maybe I'll just send them the link to my blog. Think that might do it? I guess it's time to "come out" some more. Well, I'm off to contemplate this a bit more and do a little work around the office. Many blessings to you all!


  1. Let me know how those Mandrake are doing... I'm wanting to try my hand at growing a few myself...

    And, if I were you, I'd send them all a link to your blog and tell them to enjoy... ;-p But hey, that's just me!

  2. I think sending them Pagan Humor jokes would be funny.

  3. You could always set up a filter so those types get sent to a folder instead of your inbox.

    Congrats to your son :)

  4. Yes...maybe some Pagan humor! I can't filter emails at work.

  5. congrats to your son!! that is a HUGE accomplishment! and P.S... I think the whispy 'do' looks great! my hair just dosnt do that care-free look and I wish it would! :P

    lol! Im not far enough out of the broom closet for a whole bunch of people to know im a pagan (my grampy is a pentecosatl minister lol!) but im not the type that people would send biblical humor anyway... never had that problem! I would probably get a kick out of them either way though... either because they really are funny... or just laughing at the stupidity of the joke! anyway! good luck with all that jazz!

  6. Great picture - and you are both looking great!!! ((He's so handsome!!!)) I always just delete the emails, the chain stuff I don't have time to bother with or no interest, I never say anything ... but I hate ruffling feathers, if you know what I mean... as for Spring, don't you just love it!!!! I'm so happy to see all the pretty blooms and hear the birds singing in the morning... it's lovely... I need to get my tush in gear and do some planting too! xox

  7. That is a great picture of the two of you. =)
    I still get christian emails from family and coworkers. I believe they do not think prior to sending and I just delete them upon arrival. Some were sending them to my work email and to those I explained it was a work address and asked they not send joke emails. It worked nicely. =) I'm curious to read what you decide.
