weight lost and walking

Getting Ready

Yesterday (July 11 2018) I wash off the bucket of rocks that I will be taking to our 2nd annul camp out.
But also I got the chairs ready for our circle. Wipe it down with moon water (Holly Water) and with sage ask those who every sits in the chair that comfort comes to them, they stay safe and is blessed.
There people who can't stand during our entire ceremony.
My Mennonite neighbor were having some type of religion activity. I could hear them singing. Actual it was quite beautiful.
And I'm our doing a ritual on the chairs.
I guess I have to wonder. What there thinking they have a pagan living next door. I've never brought up my beliefs.
Mennonites don't push there beliefs either. Which I like about them.

Isn't it amazing what we can still learn being middle age. I thought those who TOSSED THE BONES actual used bones. They use all sort of odds and ends.
Question time...What is something you thought or said but later found out you were wrong?

I did mange to get in a small walk this morning. Regis took me out for lunch. We split a child plate of chicken nuggets. He had the chicken nuggets and part of the fries.
Then I had half of fries and the salad.

I meant my friend Quenella at understand for morning coffee. And coffee I been trying to keep down to a minimum.
But coffee to me is some what a ritual for me. I like sitting on deck and joying what is.

I use to do a SCAVENGER HUNT for the WHEEL OF YEAR using snail mail and depending on which pagan holiday...I would ask for seven items to be exchange.
It was fun and I'm thinking of doing it for Mabon.

Wednesday Meme Number Nine

1. What's something in your house you'd like to get rid of but can't?
It been slow but I been going though certain area in the house. First anything just plain trash I take directly to the garbage. And after that I then go back though it make my self a lease give 10% to the thrift store. Right now there this pile I been hauling off to the thrift store and I have set of desert glasses and I keep looking at them and have all sorts of thoughts of what I can do with them. Knowing I don't have the actual time to make it happen.

2. When is the last time you experienced a sense of nostalgia? Elaborate.
I'm not much on nostalgia. But usual when nostalgia comes around I try to balance it out in my thinking. Recall both side of it, negative and postive. 

I find people who are heavy into nostalgia have trouble moving forward and change is uncomfortable for them.

3. You're only allowed three apps on your smart phone or tablet...which three do you keep?
I haven't yet put any apps on my phone.

4. July 11th is National Blueberry Muffin Day. Who knew? Do you like blueberry muffins? If you were going to have a muffin would blueberry be your choice? What's the last thing you baked?
Blueberry muffin does sound good. I was thinking of doing up some type muffin and enter them in our county fair. 

It been a while since I baked.
I been thinking of making what I call a sunshine pie. It something I take to summer soltice party. A pie made up of necterine or peach, blueberries or huckleberrie, and strawberries or raspberries. For this pie the trick is the arrangement of the fruit. In middle you place the necterine, and on the out side edge place mixture of blueberries, and raspberries. Note I use about 60% necterine, for rapberries and blueberris I divide them about 15% each.
This an open face pie and once it bake and it taken oven It was a nice blend of fruit that looks like a summer sun.

5. What's the biggest way you've changed since you were a child? In what way are you still the same?
I think as I got older I learn about sitting personal bounds. So that way I have change.

But I still have my sence of humor. I love laugh when I was young and still do.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

It been general hot here in north idaho, with a few days of relief. This weekend we having a pagan camp out, and some other pagan coming up from the Spokane area. It not one of sabbats or esbates but our circle or worship theme is planting, growing, and harvest.

Should Be And I Know Better

I need and no I should be more active. It plain and simple I been procrastinate about taking walks. Well I did mange to get a small walk.
I end parking on the back parking lot at Regis. So when I left I walk down the road and around the building to get a few extra steps in.
I took a short walk down our road and down the hill a bit.
Weigh in at T.O.P.S I've maintain the same weight for last two times. I've been working on loosing 20 pounds for year.
It been a half a year and I'm down 10 pounds. But I seem I can't get going on next five pounds. I want to be down anther 5 pounds by September.

I got invited to a LAMMAS celebration and there planning to have FUNERAL GAMES  But I have to wonder in today world what type of games they will play. They're planning five of them.
The celebration is in CLAYTON WASHINGTON

I pagan circle we have four elements we work with and any of these spiritual part of life we all have or can grow.
Earth element represent the north. It falls in line of stability, fertility, growth, and healing.
We all deal in a our life time cycle of life.birth, life, death and rebirth.
 It most ultimate feminine
Air element represent the east. Changes, ideal, communications. Just think how the wind brings in storms and also remove them.
Fire elements represent the south. creativity, passion, Fire can also clear out the old and one need to be careful that they don't destroy something is a value to them.
Water elements represent the west emotion, intuition. Sometime we need to deal with our emotion baggage before we move on and is aloud to grow.
emotion makes us who we are. Both negative and positive ones.
The four elements in paganism helps us though our life.

Now What Will Get Posted In Limted Time

Watch the national news, afterward President Trump announce his nominee for the United States Supreme court.
Then afterward I have a few project I'm going to work on. Clean out my car, and start to prep work on our wands. Removing part of the bark.

So this morning I did a little research on irritable bowel syndrome diet. I will have diarrah and constipation at the same time.
Well I looked at three site on types of food I should eat.
All three sites mention diary and it sugars, meat fats, and soluble fibers, or insoluble fiber.
Is to figure out what my balance I need.
Dinner I had green salad, rice with soy sauce, and barbecue ground beef patty.
But each of site also couldn't agree on food that is beneficial or detrimental. But it seem they agree on three above.

It been in upper 80's today and if I have the time and it cool down once the sun goes down I will to get a walk in.

I guess President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme court, and he is five years younger then me.

Now I Believe It Day Seven

Little behind on the Ultra Blog Challenge, So I missed two days. Sky didn't part and angels didn't blow there horn. Last two days the sun came up in east and set in west.
All is good.

I guess I will make this a hodge podge post, as there a little of this and that though out my day. But mostly on paganism.

Got all of my stuff from Amazon. Almost complete bucket of rocks to paint. I'm taking them down to our pagan group camp out this up coming weekend.
As for a work shop we will be making WANDS which could be looked also as royalty SCEPTRE. Then there two other possible way of looking at as STAFF OF MOSES or AARON ROD.
The type of wood you use will make a different. there pagans who have multi wands. Made from different types of WOODS and the two main type of wood we will be using is birch and maple. But some one might bring in different woods.

Not long ago some ask me if I was raise pagan. My parents gave me complete religious freedom. I attend many churches, mostly Christians and when I lived in the Opportunity Washington I went to the female youth group at the BEREANS.
And then my parents moved and being 14 I also end up moving. I then usual attend the catholic church and was fascinated by there Saints.
Also there were other churches I have attend though out my life. I even been to Buddhist service. Three religious service I would like to attend is HINDUJUDAISM, and MUSLIM
If there UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM church in my neck of woods. Is a religion I would attend on weekly bases

Today we ran though the circle which will be held the last day of our camp out. We're doing a circles in a circles.
We're doing a royal court sit up. So there a place for the Pages, Knights, Queen, and King. Then also we will be the elements.
Anther day and time I can explain the court and elements.

Opinion time I think two other holidays we should celebrate as much as our indepdence is our CONSTITUTION and that would be September 17 and also we should celebrate our BILL OF RIGHTS which is also in September on the 24th.
So since there so close together a day in September we should celebrate both.
Question time...which new amendment should be add to the consition?....mine would be one for health care for all. Health care should be a right and not a privilege
