A year has passed already....

An entire year has passed, but the stories are still there. On 1 April the gov't. will shut down, quarantine 3 towns....leaving thousands of animals to die, slowly, needlessly.  Still, some fight one.  There are plenty of scars as well.

I wants it.

This is the most *awesome* sandbox  *Ever*.  I don't have room for it at this rental property, but I still wants it!

Wednedsday post, which I forgot to post...

My newest tarot deck came in. So excited! We're having out 'get to know you' Saturday evening.  I would like to use my incense. I recently dumped my stick incense as the charcoal used to bind was getting to be too much for myself & my daughter.  Now I have restocked with no/low smoke charcoal & resins. Which is lovely, except for one thing.....I can't get the charcoal lit hot enough to burn the resin! *What* am I doing wrong?!  I use matches, lit long enough to get sparks going, but then, once the sparks fade, the charcoal is only heated long enough (& only on one corner) to burn 2 minutes, tops!   AARRGGHHHHHH.....

Getting warmer...time for seeds!

Excitement mounts! First half of seeds are in my hands: red cabbage, basil, cinnamon basil, cucumbers, lettuce mix, paste tomatoes.  Waiting for my little package of seed trays...will give it a few more days before I start contacting the company to see what's up.  Second half of seeds are in the mail.
The soil is still much to cold & wet to think about planting anything, so will start seedlings beginning of next month.  Also a new partial fence must be put up due to soninlaw not controlling his dog properly.

It feels like an early spring....

...so much movement...beginnings begun in Springtime :)  Here are just a few that have caught my eye:
A lovely song for Holle;  a new Sun talisman; fresh oils for a new season.
