So, it's been a while since i've posted. The main reason is that it would have been really difficult not to mention the following until we were ready...

So, yeah, [livejournal.com profile] luvcherbear and i figured we're close enough to the 12 weeks we decided on for the announcement, and since just about the whole world seems to be snowed in today, and has nothing to do but check LJ and Facebook, there it is :) Check out her posts tagged "ps" (for poppy seed) that she should be unlocking at any moment.

Ooh baby I love your way every day.

Merry Yule, everyone!

Celebrated tonight with my Love... Earlier i also happened on this timely news story on tv:


Kinda interesting that 10 minutes searching on BBC's website failed to find it, but 2 seconds on Google did...

Today is less stressful at work than the past few days. This is a welcome relief...
aaaaargh! )
Well at least i still have a job, and don't have to move to Minnesota for it either. I think i'll be spending the two weeks' vacation updating my résumé, though.

I don't want to work / I want to bang on these drums all day.

I meant to post this over the weekend... My drive home from work on Friday was eventful.

Stuff happened... )
I don't really remember the rest of the drive home... except for a brief call to [livejournal.com profile] luvcherbear to let her know i was running late. I'm not superstitious, but the fact that this was Friday the 13th is a bit of a coincidence.

It's Friday, I'm in love.

Figure i'll write down stuff from the past several weekends before i start forgetting them :) Why only weekends? That's when i have a life...
weekends... )
This weekend promises more fun... trick-or-treaters, it's Samhain, we're possibly meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] paquerette on Sunday... and i have a date! *squee* :)

Kisses and Hugs to my loved ones!

Happy Mabon, everyone!

It's Autumn! Autumn, Autumn, Autumn! My favourite time of the year :) On my way out of work this evening, i could already smell it in the air. Summer and Spring smell different here than they did back in England/Holland. Autumn, though, has a very familiar, comforting smell that reminds me of running through piles of dry leaves, morning and evening fog, toffee apples and long shadows in the afternoon.

This past weekend [livejournal.com profile] luvcherbear and i went to Fall Frolic up near Milford. I didn't realise at the time, but it was very much a pagan-oriented event. I went mainly to hear [livejournal.com profile] magicksaff and [livejournal.com profile] stihltygre play a few sets (their band is Project Wendigo), but had fun visiting the vendors and joining in a Mabon ritual in the woods. That evening the Gypsy Nomads played as well... always awesome to see them, but this time it was in a small hall with at most 50 people there.

Last time we saw them was at the last Wicked Faire, with hundreds of people in the audience. This was definitely a different experience :)

Sunday we had another Mabon celebration with family and friends. Less ritual, more Harvest feast, and wonderful seeing everyone again!

Hope everyone had a wonderful day! Hugs & kisses to my loved ones!

As usual, it's taken me until half way through the week to get around to writing a weekend update. Two weekends this time...
Weekend 1 )Weekend 2 )
This coming weekend is a long one. Not only do i have Labor Day off, but the day after, too, because of my company's requirement that everyone take even more vacation time so they don't have to pay us. I already have some plans, so we'll see what else happens :)

*Hugs* and *Kisses* to my loved ones!

Just a quick note to point out that paid members can get a 3-day extension to make up for the outage last week:

The last few weekends have been pretty busy...

A lot has happened since i last posted, so i figured it might be time for an update. I should have more time to post next week, as i'll be stuck in a hotel room in Minneapolis. Of course, i probably won't have anything to post about, as i'll be, well, stuck in a hotel room in Minneapolis.

Since i've already written about next week, i guess i'll continue in reverse chronological order :)
Read more... )
So, yeah, off on another trip next week. I don't like traveling much, and being away from [livejournal.com profile] luvcherbear even less. Here's hoping for an uneventful journey...

Leavin home, out on the road / I've been down before / Ridin' along in this big ol' jet plane / I've been thinkin' about my home.

I love it when artists, especially good ones, can support themselves doing what they love. I'm a bit jealous that they make a living doing what they enjoy doing so much :) The latest example is [livejournal.com profile] ursulav whose publisher is pulling no stops promoting her latest book, Dragonbreath and have already picked up several sequels. BTW, she sells her artwork at Red Wombat Studio and of course there's the epic Digger.

Another LJ-er self-employed, doing wonderful work is [livejournal.com profile] kyleri. Check out her website and order stuff. You won't regret it :) Same goes for [livejournal.com profile] fabricdragon's beads and other pretty things. And there's [livejournal.com profile] aeire and [livejournal.com profile] willowanderer with their webcomics...

There are many others... feel free to plug them in comments :) What prompted me to post this, though, is the tough situation another artist finds herself in. [livejournal.com profile] yoki_onna is the author of the Palimpsest series and was a guest at the last Wicked Faire. To raise funds she's selling her latest book online. It's available for whatever you want to pay, a new chapter each week.

People you've got the power over what we do / You can sit there and wait or you can pull us through / Come along, sing the song / You know that you can't go wrong.

It came!

At long last, today's mail brought USCIS form N-445, that is, "Notification of Naturalization Oath Ceremony"! I had my interview / test back in early January, and they told me at the time i would get this letter "in 3 to 6 weeks". I was beginning to think i wouldn't get it in time for the next Oath ceremony at the local courthouse, and they only do it twice a year. But i did, and on June 23rd i'll no longer be an alien. Stay tuned for details on a party that [livejournal.com profile] luvcherbear has promissed :)

Never looking back again / They're coming to America.

A lot's been going on the past few weeks, so i figure an update is in order... More or less in chronological order:
Week in CA )
Week off )
Tribe meet )
Game day )
Beer )
Off again this whole week, too, so [livejournal.com profile] luvcherbear and i have a date planned for Thursday, her regular day off.

Wow, this got long... Time for some cuts :) Hugs and Kisses to my loved ones!

Took my chances on a big jet plane, / Never let them tell you that they're all the same.
