Plans, things changing, preparing

I have worked out the garden lay-out, the kids and I will be making newspaper seed pots this week...I need over 200! I am excited about this, also almost all of what we are planting can be eaten! This I hope will save us some money, and even more important will help us eat healthier.
Ned became baptize as a Mormon on Sunday! This was sort of a shock, but maybe for him it be good.
I am trying to get the Goddess circle up and going, but with being ill this past weekend, there was just no way to do it. I will be hosting an imbloc, but that will be it until after Mardi Grais, as the world in New Orleans stops during carnival!
I have to start making some king cakes this week. I am hoping to get a few made to take to the mission.
I am going to start Yoga classes soon, there are many studio's within walking distance of where we live! So that will be really good.
I am also going to be taking the girls of a spa day soon, we also live within walking distance of about 20 spa's/beauty shops!
I am working on making purses, I have ordered more fabric...most is vintage reproduced, but some is really from the the 40's. 50's and 60's.
I have to get the Frida Shrine done for the shine swap that I am currently doing on swap-bot.

Change is good....preparing.

I figure that last year I did good...I quit smoking, I started working more, and so for the 2010 year I am going to try and do more positive things. Here is my list of what I hope to do:
1. Reconnect with family, both my Mom's and Dad's. I hope that I can get to know them, and for them all to know us. I live close to both sides of the family, and I figure why not?
2. To get my garden really going this year...this will go with #3
3. To get healthy, to eat better, to just do more things that are healthy.
4. To get into school.

What I have done so far to acheive the above:
1. I found Aunts, Uncle, and cousins on facebook....I am so excited! My cousin Michelle was like my BEST freind when we were little!
2. I have ordered seeds, plants, and am reading books, catalogs and websites about gardening.
3. Walking more. growing sprouts, and drinking less soda.

I just want more out of life, and more for my kids.
I also have given myself permission to let go of my grief. It is time. I will always love my parents, I will always miss them but I must let go now.

New year, new decade, new goals/intentions

It is 2010, a whole new decade has come, this has been a very odd 10 years!
I found the following, and thought that it was interesting(it sounds a lot like new age stuff...but It also has a lot of truth):

The Code - Ten Intentions for a Better World

The First Intent ~ Support Life
I refrain from opposing or harming anyone. I allow others to have their own experiences. I see life in all things and honor it as if it were my own. I support life.

The Second Intent ~ Seek Truth
I follow my inner compass and discard any illusions that are no longer serving me. I go to the source. I seek truth.

The Third Intent ~ Set Your Course
I begin the creative process. I give direction to my life. I set my course.

The Fourth Intent ~ Simplify
I let go, so there is room for something better to come in. I learn to trust by lining up with the highest good and knowing that I am guided, guarded and protected at all times. I am open to receive from expected and unexpected sources. I simplify.

The Fifth Intent ~ Stay Positive
I see good, say good and do good. I accept the gifts from all of my experiences. I am living in grace and gratitude. I stay positive.

The Sixth Intent ~ Synchronize
I am in the flow, fulfilling my desires and doing what I came here to do. Allowing beauty to guide me, I step into the present, where great mystery and miracles abide. I synchronize.

The Seventh Intent ~ Serve Others
I practice love in action. I always have enough to spare and enough to share. I am available to help those who need it. I serve others.

The Eighth Intent ~ Shine Your Light
I am a magnificent being, awakening to my highest potential. I express myself with joy, smiling easily and laughing often. I shine my light.

The Ninth Intent ~ Share Your Vision
I create my ideal world by envisioning it and telling others about it. I share my vision.

The Tenth Intent ~ Synergize
I see humanity as one. I enjoy gathering with lighthearted people regularly. When we come together, we set the stage for Great Oneness to reveal itself. We synergize.

I am going to practice some this though-out the year, and see what happens!
