As promised, it’s time for a mead post! On Sunday we spent 7 hours, off and on, playing with mead. Actual work time was probably closer to 3 hours, but in that time we bottled a mead, racked two meads for clearing off, experimented with getting a mead going again (stalled) and started two new batches of mead. At current we have three meads fermenting, two clearing off, and three in the bottle. (more…)
Polyamory and me (and him…and her)
Let’s talk about another topic that might be hard for some. Talking about sexuality and relationship styles may not be something you’re interested in getting into, and that’s perfectly fine. As promised last time, we do have another mead post coming up soon! (more…)
Let’s talk kink
As I mentioned in a previous post, I want to start talking about one of the things that is such a large, important part of my life. And after talking to a great friend who is also in the lifestyle, I got the kick in the pants to get started (thanks, love!). I’ll be talking about various aspects of BDSM, so if you’re uncomfortable reading about it, feel free to take a skip. I’ll be posting all kink related content under the “BDSM” category, to help make it easier to skip. I’ll catch you again soon with another mead update!(more…)
What’s happening with mead
So my last major blog post was about starting two five gallon batches of mead. We mixed a batch with 2lb honey/gallon and a batch with 3lb honey/gallon. We let those percolate for the better part of six months, racking it off to let it clear and tossing some mulling spice into most of the 3lb/gal. And in the end, it all turned out how we wanted it to. My dry is currently in 30 or so bottles (and dwindling) while the hub’s mulled is largely still in the bucket. Which leads us to where we’re at now.(more…)
Recentering in 2020
Hello, my beautiful goobers. This year has been a hell of a ride for all of us, I’m sure. And there’s still so much coming in the next few months. And while that was happening, there’s been some stressful stuff happening around here, too. But there has been a lot of really good things happening, too. But it’s been hard for me to talk about those things here since a lot of what’s been going on have been parts of my life I’ve never really shared on this blog. And what’s the point? This blog is supposed to be about what’s important to me, so keeping such a large part of my life tucked away left me with very little to talk about.
So we’ll be having a change of pace around here. I’ve culled a lot of my old posts and archived them. I’m not ashamed of the path I’ve taken to bring me here, but there are things that I don’t want to see every time I come here to this space. Many of my old religion posts are still here, as are several of my old writings. And there will be more posts about my faith and where the spiral path is taking me now. And there will be posts about the things we’re doing these days – like our mead experiments – that I’ll get around to eventually.
But there are topics I want to talk about that I haven’t been brave enough to address here. Things that are important to me and who I am. So I’ll be discussing them now. I am a polyamorous bisexual woman. My husband is the love of my life. But he’s not the only love in my life. And I’m not ashamed of the women I’ve been fortunate enough to love and be loved by. My husband isn’t ashamed of it, either. That also ties into BDSM and my participation in that lifestyle. I’m a Domme who has had the privilege of holding the submission of some amazing and powerful women. I’m part of an amazing community that allows me to share my knowledge and gain more. And it’s knowledge I’d like to share here and ideals that I’d like to explore here.
So I will. If you are uncomfortable with these new topics, you are more than welcome to focus only on the religion/spirituality Topics, listed on the side and at the top of the page. If you’re curious, please feel free to interact. If I get into anything too raunchy, I’ll be tagging those with the NSFW tag. If you find you can no longer follow this blog, then I wish you well on your travels. I understand that not everyone wants to interact with this kind of content and hold no grudge against that.
But if you are interested in these topics, then make yourself comfortable, however that looks to you. Consent is queen, I’m just the Domme in charge.
The mead experiment
I kept saying I wasn’t going to post a blog about the mead until we’d finished it all and made all our notes about it. But we’ve still got a little of the dry, sarsaparilla mead still left to be drunk. But since on Sunday we started our next batch, I think now is the time. (more…)
It’s that time of year again. May 2019 bring blessings and joy to us all and may the Gods and UnGods walk ever beside us and lead us with the example of Their strength through the year to come.

First I would like to welcome everyone who comes to this post – whether you are one of my familiar goobers who has returned yet again to my little corner of the internet, or if you are a new visitor who comes because of the Gaelic Roundtable. Be ever welcome in joy and love while you are a guest in my “home”. It’s been several months since I participated in the roundtable and I’m looking forward to getting involved once more. This month’s discussion is – divinity. (more…)
This Memorial Day, I honor the one soldier that I knew and loved the best, my Granddaddy, James Luther. He didn’t die at war. He didn’t give the ultimate sacrifice. And he’s been gone nearly 15 years. But he is who I remember and today he is who I honor.
