Happy Samhain!

Merry meet! I hope this holiday finds everyone well. We have seen a lot changes around the "kitchen". There has been tons of sewing for all the costume events, and for our recent hand-fasting. We had a perfect October day for a beautiful ritual. I dare say that my non-pagan family members did not expect such a ceremony. However, it was truly beautiful and everyone thought so, regardless of religious affiliation.

And, on a sad note, a few months ago my beloved black cat passed. Moonie was a loving cat, to me, and she has been very missed. She was getting on in years, as she was going on 10 years old. She was an indoor cat, however she expressed a wish to sit on the deck in her last few weeks of life. She didn't show any signs of anything being wrong until the final day or two, and then it was too late. My poor kitty! May she find the Summer Land warm, sunny and full of fluffy pillows just for her.

Happy Imbolc!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Imbolc. I had a realitively nice one. There was no baking this time around, as I was busy cleaning house, and busy playing Mom's Taxi. The youngest was at my mom's, and the teen with the attitude was at softball conditioning. I did light my candles when I go home, and took a moment of peace and quiet as I could find it. And trust me, in my house, that's a great feat unto itself. I think I will be baking this Saturday, as we are supposed to get hit with a winter storm come Friday and Saturday. Maybe baking will help remind spring that it needs to hurry up, even though that groundhog saw his shadow. Maybe some nice baked goods will help convince it to show up early anyway.

Well, until it's time to start my seedlings for the gardens, I must say ado!
