*Hel, we’ve barely had a winter her in River City; cold yes, snow, not so much..
Fruchtbarkeit/Saturday, we pray to Sibba, and to Ing-Frô, lighting green candles (for fertility):
Sibba, Great Goddess of Fertility and Family, wife of Donar; let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let us see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let us see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba, that we may do our work in the world. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HAIL, SIBBA, as we honor the Sibba that resides in us all!
(peace, good seasons), the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the god of this World. When the day to day wears us down remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing-Frô, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HAIL, ING-FRÔ, as we honor the Ing-Frô that resides in all of us!

my old comrades out to war,
I sing 'neath the shields, and they fare forth mightily
safe into battle, safe out of battle,
and safe return from the strife.
Interpretation: Control (Ehwaz) AND success (Sig): perfekt!
Outcome: Just as I think Toby has figured out his 1-mile walk…the first distraction, he handled perfectly. The next two distraction, not so much. Verbally berating him was in order.
Dillons http://www.dillons.com/Pages/default.aspx for Essie’s breakfast bacon; well,
McDs http://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en/home.html 1st breakfast
Contacted by a childhood/Heathen friend; some trying family issues.
2nd breakfast: two eggs with cheese and salsa, potatoes O’Brien, 6 oz bacon, milk, juice.
Right there! Right there is the reason why I’m so hesitant to Essie outside off the tether. There’s a black-n-white tomcat with balls the size of Texas that has been hanging around the neighborhood for some time. He doesn’t belong to anybody, really, and I know he’s not feral. He’s loyal to whosoever will feed him. I’ve seen him beat-up other cats, I’ve seen him pretty beat-up. My fear is that this tom will find Essie and who knows what he might do to her.
I think Essie was a bit perturbed when I let her outside on a tether under my supervision. She nonetheless found her way about 4ft up a nearby tree and roosted a bit.
Separated recyclables and took them in http://recyclewichita.org/
On the way back from taking in the recyclables I found a place I want to eventually frequent: Diamond Archery http://diamondarchery.net/
WOW! I’ve been wondering what has ever become of Thea. According to a source for which I obviously can't successfully produce a proper link on Weebly, I think she may have been in jail for a little more than a year. I have someone checking on it.
Rheinwood Nordliut had our open meeting this evening. Well, actually it was a combination open/closed as we had an excellent fried chicken dinner prepared by our Tyra, the we broke open the “Germanic Heathenry" book and discussed the priority of the family in relation to the Irminenschaft. After that the hinges came off completely with other various and sundry other things.
MISL (Major Indoor Soccer League) http://misl.uslsoccer.com/
Missouri Comets 15:29 Milwaukee Wave
Syracuse Silver Knights 6:11 Baltimore Blast
Rochester Lancers 11:14 Wichita Wings (WOW!)
HEAR ME HEIMO, Gellanhorn’s god, son of nine
mothers and whitest of all gods. You’re the genetic link between the gods and humankind. From your home in Himilberg, your keen eyes and sharp ears guard Ensigart, the world of the gods. As you stand so alert for the approach of giants, remind us that we must also watch for our own encroaching evil. Let weakness, cowardice, lies and dishonor be barred from Ensiwëg, the Rainbow Bridge, leading to our heart’s abode. Be a model for vigilance, that we may rise to the best that is in us, and someday join the Noble Gods in
their shining homes. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HAIL, HEIMO, as we honor the Heimo that resides in us all!
