Full moon

Tomorrow is our full moon circle and the ritual still needs some work!

Imbolc is in two short weeks and that event needs a lot of sprucing up.
Meanwhile I share this.

It’s a good time to journal, and so I am going to barrow from one of my favorite blogs Abide With Me. Every now and then she does a journaling post with lots of headings as prompts. I am changing them a little and borrowing a little from others.

Drink of the Day (From Thalassa)
Irish Breakfast Tea

Sowing/ Harvesting:  Sowing the seeds to making my dreams real. Harvesting some dream work and some hard work put in after wards to create my workbook.

In the Garden:  we are really hopping now. I have the baby sprouts of corn coming up and we have put in water melons, sunflowers, a ton of wildflowers, tomatoes, and basil. I have a volunteer cucumber (no idea how I got that!) a ton of butternut squash starts that need to be moved and shared. AND still 2 empty beds to plant. I’m trying the square foot garden method and I am really liking it. I have a slew of plants that I still want to put in too. Oh and I found the most beautiful rose blooming in my garden this morning! It is from my neighbor’s yard and it is stunning. I will get a picture.

Creating:.Various books and kits 🙂 more on that later.

Looking: The birds in my yard. I am engaged in this silly life and death battle going on. It is silly that I’m involved not that silly that it is going on. The house finches and mocking birds make their nest in our row of 14 cypress tress. The babies are hatched and featherless little things squeaking for food. The Crows come by for an easy meal. Last year around this time he carried one off and Little was so sad. So now I’m going out side 5 times a day to shoo the crow away and explain that after the babies are bigger and no longer food I will leave him some food. He just looks at me to see if I’m  seriously getting in the way of his meal.

Listening: The blasted TV which seems to be always on. The birds mocking birds and mourning doves and quail and blue jays and house finches. I don’t know them all.

Smiling: I sold my first workbook. I created something that someone else liked enough to buy. Its kind of a rush

Reading:  A book on square foot gardening and then anything else on my nightstand. trying to get back on track of my blogs. I’m WEEKS behind!

Outing: Does going to the office count?  Things are going better there though. I took Little to a swim class. The second one went better than the first. The first she didn’t want class to be over and jumped back into the pool and ran to a place that was too deep for her.

Thinking: I miss my blog and reading blogs. I wonder if I can sneak away and watch 2 episodes of Rachel Zoe and 20 of Dr Who?

Cooking: We made some yummy ribs the other day and a yummy frittata with goat cheese.  When I plan my week I cook better and eat better when I don’t plan I end up uninspired.  I really want soup

Feeling: hormonal. TMI? I have seriously cried a lot over the last week some happy some sad but quick to tears is ANNOYING!

Wishing:  for someone to cook me soup and bring me hot chocolate with whipped cream while I read and or watch the above shows. I need some “off” time.

Poppy’s Pagan Planning Imbolc 4

Our last Imbolc post before the holiday. If you have missed the others you check them out here, and here, and here 🙂 or if your curious about any sort of holiday or event please check out My Book of Days. I add all of the Poppy’s Pagan Planning posts to it as well as share posts from other blogs and recipes and all sorts of things that I find interesting and useful.

I just love the candles and the lanterns of this picture. And the white and the Green color palette

These are just mason jars filled with Epsom salt with candles. I think it looks a little like ice and snow and think it would be a lovely way to mark out the edges of the circle.

These are Peonies made from coffee filters! simple and beautiful. I tried to follow the pinterest link to brown paper 😦 so I searched around and I found another tutorial here. Warning that blog plays music when you open it.

Ah Martha, she always has such good stuff! These were for Valentines day as you can tell by the pink lace but I think with white lace they would be lovely snow like candles.

A lovely little chant 🙂

This is a pattern from urbanthreads.com I think it would be fun as a embroidery piece or just a coloring page.

last but not least a lovely beeswax lantern from Petals and Sunshine which is one of my very favorite blogs. You can find her tutorial here and be excited to know it is not that hard.

I hope you enjoyed my Imbolc sires. I sure have. I think I will tweak it a little for the next series Beltane 🙂

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
