I hope you all had a delightful and positive Solstice today. Mine was quite sunny. No huge celebrations though. I’ve done them, they’re lovely, but not what I need any longer. In my googling around earlier I did come across a very useful resource that I thought you guys would like. Here is a wonderfully informative post.
It’s so fun when I stumble across these places. Can’t wait to go read more from this person. I encourage anyone who is interested in the history of our high holy days spend a few minutes there. No clue who runs it, but I’m going to find out later.
I also came across this place. I’m fascinated by miniatures, as you all well know. But this takes it to an entirely higher level. ALIVE gardens! But TINY! Will be spending some time there as well.
As I entered our card altar room this afternoon, right before I headed out on the bike, I was guided to our newest deck. As it turns out, this one is perfect for today. (Of course it is.)
“Goddess Of Nature ~
You reap what you sow;
Your dream is coming to fruition.
This is a time to reap the rewards and benefits that are derived from the seeds of a project, venture, or idea you planted some time ago. It has not all be plain sailing, and many a time you have doubted whether your many efforts and labour would ever be rewarded.
Yet harvest time has come. A time when you reap what you have sown. Accept all the blessings about to come your way and realise that they are the result of the love, courage, dedication, and commitment you have shown in the recent past.
Give thanks to Mother Nature and enjoy!”
Those five-pointed stars caught my eye immediately. Duh. And in this case I actually don’t hate the illustration, entirely. Kinda dark, but the symbolism is nice. If I don’t look too closely (still lines in her eyes) this one will suffice. Also, the message is great.
Last night after he got off work, my son came by. He had ordered a few things for his dad, and since we were gone last weekend, the gift giving happened around our kitchen table, at one in the morning.
That gun was merely the one J.D. had with him. To show his father? I guess. I wasn’t paying attention* to that part of the conversation. The gifts were outstandingly cool, a combo package of assorted items from both of our Aries babies. (Gemini girl gave us a baseball game evening and was fabulously generous all weekend.)
*I was very busy trying to avoid his french fries. I failed, in this attempt, just as I did with the last one (from yesterday). Don’t even ASK about the health report right now.
If you looked at Dan’s new twitter page you saw the tweetie pic he sent out last night (a new watch, guitar pick press, multi-use BBQ implement, and some assorted dried meat snacks). Later, a miracle occurred. Jade joined the masses. Follow him too: @daywalker103 (please and thank you).
When we got home (and it was light out), this was one of the first things I checked on. My salad bowl continues to amaze and thrill me. This Friday I’m hoping that the guy who sold us the starts has his booth up at the Farmer’s Market so I can get more. If not, it’ll still be a great time there, Ally is playing her tuba! (Yes, there will be pictures.)
Finally, here’s our Daily Dog. As soon as I opened the door he shot right out onto the porch. Then, he immediately collapsed.
See? Sunny. We are very glad to see that Summer truly has arrived. (Even if it was ferociously freaking cloudy yesterday and it’s probably going to rain tomorrow.)
