Yay! warm weather!!!!

I thought it might be fun to keep people up to date on what I've been reading. I have so many books that I could be a library all by myself. I thought I would write book reviews mostly just for fun but also as a way for others to find something they might like to read.

So here it is book review number one: The Mummy or Ramses the Damned by Anne Rice. Ok first off, let me say I love almost everything I have ever read that this author has written. This book is mostly set in Egypt while it was still THE hotspot for wealthy Americans and Europeans to go for the winter. This book was alot of fun to read because Anne Rice always paints vivid pictures of the characters. Basic storyline is as follows: An egyptologist awakens an imortal man who falls in love with the egyptologist's daughter. They go to Egypt to see the Ancient Ruins where the immortal finds the body of his lost love. I don't want to give too much away but its a great book fraught with moral dillemna, sex, murder, big scary mummies and ancient magic (sort of). What's not to love?

Ok, well obviously I'm not the best book reviewer but I've always been bored with book reviews I've read. They were always too dry

I'm excited its spring, more or less. I have a bunch of plants starting or growing and its fabulous. Its still cold but thats hows ohio does it. This year I'm planting calendula in hopes of making my own salves and things with it, and maybe eating some just for fun. Right now half of the seeds have sprouted and are 2 inches (give or take) tall and they are ADORABLE. I'm also super excited to report that I'm getting a dwarf fig tree, and mini blueberry bush (again) because I thought it would be fun to have my own dwarf fruit farm to produce my own fruit. Where I will put them all.....I don't really know but my family and my boy will just have to put up with it. The past 3 days have been rainy and or cloudy and it doesn't look like it will change today but I am hopefully watching for a parting of the clouds to warm things up so I can take walks and look at all the budding greenery.

Brightest Blessings

I'm Baaack 2 millionth edition

Ok, so I haven't been on in a long, long time. I'm really going to try and get back on the horse here now that I have a few ideas I can talk about. The first thing is the Story of Bottled Water seen below. (there was a technical confusing and it made its own blog). I really like this video and the Story of Stuff Project because it puts things into simple terms with easy to follow graphics and important points. Anyways. Watch the Story of Bottled Water, and the other 2 they have if you haven't seen them before

That movie is awesome. ok it took me some time to write this I saw it a couple moths ago when it first came out. It made every inch of my pagan social justice-y heart very happy. For once the indigenous population wins!!!!! And Mama pandora (the planet) got mad and kicked ass. It was great, it makes me a happy happy pagan.

2009 at its end

This year has for the most part sucked. It has been a year of transition and therefore by my very definition must suck. I hate change, but cannot sit in one place and I know this. But that doesn't mean I have to like it.

This year I have dealt on numerous occasions with depression each one seemed worse then the last, starting when I was in school and the last ending only last month(honestly, I probably wouldn't have any friends at all if my fiance didn't more or less instruct me to go hang out when invited to do so because at the time I just couldn't care.....about anything), I have graduated from school, watched all my plans fall into ruins and still feel lost. I haven't posted anything because there was nothing new to post except for a worsening feeling of wandering in the black woods.

I see children and find myself wishing they would never grow up. And that sounds terrible! And it's not that I want them to die as children, Gods know thats not what I mean. But I miss being a child. I wish I wasn't an adult, with every ounce of my being. I certainly don't feel like an adult. I wish for every child I see that they stay happy and care free and all that awesome stuff that kids have and feel that gets stolen from us secretly and quietly as the world makes us grow up. But apparently while I wasn't looking and was having fun playing at grown up, the world stole away my kiddie-hood and I actually am a grown up. All I can say is what the fuck?!!

I'm engaged to a wonderful man, I've graduated college and am paying most of my bills all by myself (thanks mom and dad) and as lost and terrified as I feel most of the time I have hope. I have wonderful people around me who as much as I try and keep hidden my thoughts, fears, frustrations, and tears know me well enough to be patient with me and know me well enough to kick me in the butt when I need it....even while I'm kicking and screaming that I don't need it. Bear with me my Darlings I've never shown my feelings to people easily. I know I'm easy to read but it has never been easy to share what everyone sees in my face.

With Hope I watch for the New Year
Brightest Blessings and a Wonderful Next Year for you all
