Another month gone by without a post. Sadly it's because there hasn't been much to post about in my little corner of the world. Just trying to get by and what not.
Grendal and I recently hit a set back in the way of saving up for our wedding. We had nearly 1000 set aside when we realized that we needed a mower for our 4+ acres of grass. His parents agreed to pay us back and there went our savings. They've made one 'payment' so far but that was about two or three weeks ago and was a vary small portion of it. While it rankles me I can't say much because they're in a financial bind due to bills and little in the realm of a budget and restraint.
The two of us have sat down and looked at what we need/want for the wedding. I think we've come to the conclusion that 15 gallons of mead is a bit much due to how strong our brew is, and how many bottles we'll need. That and we don't have many drinkers in our group. I'm thinking about taking it down to possibly 6. We'll see how Grendal takes that.
We'll be heading to Bristol RenFaire to pick out our wedding jewelry. There is a lovely little stall that sells pendants and this time we'll be springing for silver rather than copper ones. We've also thought about purchasing a drinking horn for our shared cup of our homemade mead. Thought it would be a nice touch. I'm also thinking about looking for a headdress or something else as an accessory. Don't know what just yet, I'll just have to see.
Lately I've had the urge to rearrange my altar. I think it's gotten cluttered and I need to downsize. That and I believe some of my statues need to be put away. While I am not disregarding the deities as I move their representations, I just feel like I've moved on to something else. I always feel horrible when this happens. While I worked with Ba'al and those in that Pantheon, it just feels like something no longer clicks. I was so in to that mind set for some time and with a sudden switch, I'm off reading something else. To others it might seem like just jumping from one group to another just because I can. That's not the case. I've been studying and learning, expanding my views once more. In a way Ba'al was a gateway to another deity and Pantheon, one that seems closer to home than any other. There are times when I can feel him but, for the most part, his time with me has come to an end. A time that was wonderful!
