Here comes the Sun

New Moon Circle (the learning circle I am a part of) celebrated Midsummer (Litha) this afternoon/evening. 

After dinner, we had all hands on deck for creating a Sun Wheel in which we energized with all we wish to manifest into the coming dark half of the Wheel of the Year. 

Quin invoked the Green Man with the cabbage mask she created with the help of L. 

This little fella (a being brought into this world by L.) visited with our motley band and had us all falling in love. (If you want to purchase one, let me know, and I can pass your contact info along.)

Wheel complete and charged in the light of the setting sun with poetry, songs, and joy.  

Welcome Summer! How are you celebrating? 

May the shortening days ahead give you the best of memories and needed respite. 


Happy Fathers’ Day 2017

Dawn greets Father Sky before the storms blow through. And Quin lost her first tooth. (Other missing tooth was removed, not lost.)

And I am now sporting a summer cut courtesy of Dawn and her bucket list. She did a pretty amazing job. 

Blessings to all that father today. 


Summer Ear Candy

Not posting so much because of non-stop (or seemingly so) summer activities.  I have re-discovered the joy of podcasts (no apple product needed, thank you very much) and audiobooks/playaways.  Participating in the summer reading program at the local library and going to their special events for children has been a bundle of fun… later today is a magic show!

But I still exist, I promise.  You might see me at the Taste of Richmond and free music at the Richmond Centre on Friday, or the car show on Saturday…  if it is free summer fun, I might just make a personal appearance!  I did get to camp this past weekend at a friends’ farm and the weather was perfect for me.  Quin was a bit off the hook but got better as the weekend progressed.  Sadly, there are no other camping plans made for the season… but celebrating Summer Solstice on Monday with my learning circle.

If you are also into podcasts, anything by the How Stuff Works crew is great, such as “Stuff You Missed in History Class”, “Stuff You Should Know”, and “Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know” (yes, I love a good conspiracy).  I am also giving “CoffeeBreak Spanish” a whirl to see if it can improve my horrible Spanglish.

Bright Summer Blessings to my beloved readers.  Let me know if you have any favorite podcasts or audiobooks in the comments… then I can find more awesomeness to consume!  It has been rainy quite a bit lately, so we need something to thrill our brains while we crochet the day away.
