Merry Meet my friends. Wow, did you see the SuperMoon last night? She was amazing! Came up red/orange..then orange..then yellow and then bright and light! The energy coming from Her was amazing and I spent as much time as I could out with Her. It was actually quite cold here and my hands were freezing but my soul and heart were soaring from the beauty and energy. My windchimes were softly singing, coyotes howling, stars twinkling and it was a most magickal night. I hope that you all experienced Her as well. She is there for us….all you have to do is connect!
Today is the first day of Spring! A time for growth and renewal. The Earth is alive again! Grass is greening, trees budding, flower shoots poking up, critters scurrying again and our hearts are singing and feel lighter as the Sun makes our days longer and warmer. I hear mowers running again and motorcycles on the road and people are leaving their coats at home and opting for light jackets. The garden centers are open, my herb seeds are planted, and thoughts turn to being outside. There is even a smell in the air….green and earthy. Ahhh Spring!
“In the Spring, at the end of the day, You should smell like dirt!”
– Margaret Atwood
LOL I love this quote. How wonderful to smell like dirt! 🙂 That means that you have put in a good days work…in your gardens or pots, growing your herbs, flowers, veggies or weeding. The best way to truly connect with Mother Earth is too work in her rich soil, getting dirty, sweaty, your muscles aching…..then sitting back and looking at your handiwork and knowing that your hard work will reap beautiful rewards. Have you planned your garden or pots? I know my garden books and magazines are being perused greatly..and the internet is of course a wonderful way to research as well.
Things to do for Spring? Oh there is so much you can do!
-Have a picnic on a warmer day..take wine, cheese, fruit, bread…its all you need…oh and take someone you love too.
-Go visit a garden center.
-Take a drive out in the country with your windows open
-Visit a farm or go on a bird watch.
-Go fishing or mushrooming or hiking or biking.
-Sit on your porch, drink a lemonade and peruse a garden book.
-Fix a delicious light meal using fresh fruits and veggies.
-Go get an ice cream cone!
-Start a new project around the house..outdoors preferably.
-Find a path and walk it! Take your camera and start taking pics of what you see. Make a scrapbook of your photography!
Make the most of everyday my friends. The seasons are here for us to enjoy. To find Joy! and Spring is here for our renewal after a long hard winter.
The naked earth is warm with Spring,
And with green grass and bursting trees
Leans to the sun’s kiss glorying,
And quivers in the sunny breeze.
How I wish you could come and sit with me for awhile. I’m sure we’d have so much to talk about. I’ll make some cookies and tea and we would just chat and enjoy the scenery. The warm Sun, soft breezes, the feel of the earth and grass beneath our feet and the easy feel of friendship between us. How magickal would that be? Lovely indeed…:)
So let your hearts feel light and find a way to celebrate Spring! Blessings of Spring to you all with Love….
