We really pondered this for quite awhile & I have to say, it is quite a thought to dive into.
"All year long, the Sun had worked very hard, rising & setting day after day. All year long, the Sun had fed everybody on earth, shining & shining, giving energy to the trees, the flowers, the grasses so they could grow and feed the animals, birds, insects & people. All year long, the Sun's gravity held tight to the Earth and the Moon & all the other whirling planets as they traveled around, until the poor Sun was dizzy watching it all. Now the poor Sun was tired & could barely get up in the morning & after a short time needed to sleep again. So the days grew shorter & the nights grew longer."
~ from The Rebirth of the Sun by Starhawk
"So the children lit their candles & put them in a very safe place, each flame was a little spark of the Suns fire. And the Sun peeped out from between the arms of night, and saw all the little fires, and began to feel warmer & brighter & younger still."

Choose to be in close proximity to people who are empowering, who appeal to your sense of connection to intention, who see the greatness in you, who feel connected to God, and who live a life that gives evidence that Spirit has found celebration through them."

Passed down by her Mother & my Dads mother.
Old enamel pots, ancient mason jars (and some newer ones), a sieve,
funnels, an apple peeler & more.
What a treasure!
It was so fun to unpack those boxes & put the equipment to use again!
I bought some beautiful alpaca roving at the last farmers market that
I can't wait to get on the spinning wheel!
I also started knitting a new baby hat for the Mothering by Nature store
in a lovely purplish kettle dyed Peruvian cotton.
Two sneaky children ran off with my camera to take photos of their lego creations
(and some silly shots of each other!)

Pumpkin Butter was experimented with. This batch turned out pretty good using local honey in place of sugar. The littles loved it mixed into pancake batter, warmed and slathered on top of those cakes, in their morning oatmeal & on toast.
