I watched the movie The Lunchbox recently and it was lovely. Highly recommend.

This is the weekly post for those of us who are traversing together this hellscape called Personal Growth. Brag about this week’s accomplishments, ask for support, talk about what worked, what didn’t. Tell us how things are going for you.

clevermankaI’ve posted a weekly themed collection on my Tumblr nearly every week since October, 2011. Someday I’ll compile a list of them, with links to the dates. That day is not today.

Friday Open Thread

The first couple seasons of That 70s Show were so good and the theme song is included on this Cheap Trick album if you don’t already have a Cheap Trick compilation album. Ahem.

I’m hanging out with friends on Saturday and the Burgomaster is having friends over on Sunday. This is more socializing than I’ve done in a month. I’m looking forward to it, though. Haven’t seen any of these people in ages and I’m looking forward to feeding my buddies meatzas and these chocolate chip cookies (if you make these, I recommend adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract). Is there any particular role you fill in your social circle? I am absolutely The Food Lady, even in my currently diminished state.

This was a result from an image search for “checking in” gifs and I had to use it even though it doesn’t really have a check-in theme.

Passing Time: Autumnal Equinox

Guest Post, · Categories: Passing Time Rituals Series

I saw this on a Tumblr search for fall equinox images and there was no way I wasn’t using it. For those not on Tumblr or Twitter, I give you Know Your Meme, and my apologies.

Welcome to the sixth article in our rituals series. I went with the modern pagan wheel of the year calendar because several of us are familiar with it and it evenly breaks up the twelve months into manageable chunks of time. There will a mix of spiritual and secular practices and observations for each holiday–I can’t promise ahead of time if any will be weighted more one way or the other, but I’ll do my best to include something for everyone. I’ll post these the Wednesday before the holiday date. Thank you to the contributors! You are invaluable. Read full post
