I’m not dead. Yeah, I know. I’m sorry. I keep saying that I’ll do stuff and then I don’t. I’ve been fighting depression this summer, and dealing with the government, earlier this year I had bad/stalking neighbors to deal with (they are finally gone, both of them, THANK THE GODS!!!) and other stuff that just led to me retreating into one of my most reliable happy places: Middle-Earth (the other is Star Trek). Yes I spent all summer with my head buried in Lord of the Rings/the Hobbit movies, books, and fanfiction. SIGH. Anyway I am trying to get back on the horse here.
Homestead News: I have a breeder pair of rabbits now. They were given to me by a neighbor but after months of them doing the bunny-business and no babies, I had to conclude that one of them is sterile. Yes they are both plenty old enough to get preggers, and didn’t. So I ate the boy and got another one, this one a proven sire who has had many kits. So if in a month or so she still isn’t pregnant, then I’ll have to get another female and she’ll become stew. Yes, I’m so terrible of a homesteader that I’m having difficulty getting RABBITS to breed!!!! Heh. Animal husbandry is not as simple as some would have you believe.
Pagan Book News: Still planning on co-editing the Athena devotional for Neos Alexandria starting in October, so go ahead and send me your submissions. I’m looking for poetry, essays, personal experiences, rituals and recipes, translations, fictional stories, anything involving our dear gray-eyed Lady!
God of the Month Club News: I can’t keep up with doing 3 Gods a month. I just can’t. As much as I like having one from each of my Pantheons, I just can’t keep that up all the time. Some months I can handle the work load, and others I just can’t which leads to me doing nothing at all. So, sadly, I’m reducing myself to one God a month so I can give Them the attention they deserve. I will cycle through the Pantheons, so that there will be 4 Norse Gods, 4 Egyptian, and 4 Greco-Roman Gods in a year.
Since I failed the last three so badly I’m going to start with Heimdall. So when I get back to the GMC posts expect that first one to be on Heimdall, and then the month after that will be either an Egyptian or a Greek/Roman month. We’ll see which one gets chosen when that time comes, and then I’ll stick to that pattern afterwards.
