Don't limit your answers to just the spiritual side of life but let us know about the rest of your life too.

I have just finished building 9 raised beds for the garden and I ordered 2.5 yards of "fertilizer" (horse manure) to add into the sand and peat to fill them.

I just finished putting on the last of the prerequisite classes in my program of Pagan 101 series of classes. I will be going on to the more advanced classes beginning next month.

I have been busy putting drywall up in the garage and shop so I can finally finish both of them. I have been making pilots and spacers on my lathe for my case trimmer in preparation for reloading ammo for this years competitions.

I am accepting the vice presidency for the range I belong to after serving on the board of directors for the last year. I took first place in the Small bore Silhouette competition last Saturday. We are rebuilding the range and keeping it clean while putting up new signs and revamping the standard operating procedures to better define acceptable actions.

I am about half way through the police department's Citizens Academy training.

I have two loaves of banana bread that I made yesterday that have not been touched yet. One of them is for the "Pagans in the Park" gathering this coming Sunday. I have the sourdough starter curing for some cinnamon sourdough bread for the event as well.

That and my normal preparation of meals and helping my wife with some of her projects is about all I have been busy with.

Eternal Seeker:

I am meeting Saturday with the Chaplain of Putnamville Correctional Facility as consultant for Pagan services in my ongoing prison ministry. This may lead to consulting in other facilities I don't have the time and strength to actually go into at this time.

My health continues to improve after the last two surgeries (which is why I'm able to take on the above); I'm seeing a spine specialist next week about a new disc repair procedure. My weight loss is now at 115 lbs and counting.

I have a publisher for my latest book, tentatively titled "Wicca 103, an intermediate guide". I still have one chapter of text and about 20 illustrations to finish, but it's progressing well.

Our two new kittens are at that spindly stage where the framework has sprouted to adult size, and now they're adding muscle to it... which means they're eating like... well, we've nicknamed them "the locusts".

My wife and I, and some friends are putting together a trip to an elephant rescue facility later this year where we'll spend a day or two feeding and bathing them.



At work, I have been relatively busy doing project development and estimating costs for various school systems and government facilities across the state of Tennessee.  Our team develops projects that pay for themselves in energy and water conservation.  My next project is in eastern Arkansas.   Fortunately, other team members are covering the jobsite visits and sharing photos and building plans so I don't have to travel.

At home, we are gearing up for the growing season.  We planted apple and peach trees last week and GW has tilled the garden a couple of times.  We have expanded the garden area to increase our plant spacing and grow more things this year.  I have started some seeds, most notably tomatoes, which are sprouting on the front porch and am taking off this afternoon to plant kale, peas, and carrots in the tilled area.  The herbs are all thriving and weeding is a pretty constant thing. 

Very soon, I am planning to try making some mead.  I have been gathering supplies for that purpose and just need to get my hands on more honey to give it a shot.

I find that most of my spiritual activity takes place during gardening lately.  I am always mindful of the land vaettir and the lessons I can learn from participating in the process of growing things.  Occasionally, I have time for genealogical research which is an opportunity to learn more about history and create deeper bonds with the ancestors. 

The family was over on Easter for a family dinner which was nice and I spend time with my daughter regularly which is also nice.  We have decided to get Dollywood season passes so we can spend some time screaming on roller coasters this year.  :) 

I have also reserved cabins for summer getaways. We are doing a long weekend in June for a mini family reunion and a few days in July just to relax.  I am looking forward to both occasions.

Ghost Wolf:
Note: I will NOT be on the roller coasters...
