Merry evening friends! Hope that you all had a very Blessed Ostara. I know I did. It was just a simple meal and a simple ritual but meaningful. Did any of you try any of my recipes? If you did, please let me know! I’d love to hear about it. I made my Dilly egg salad for lunch and it was yummy!
Now Spring? Yea, in Ohio it’s not here yet! 🙂 We, as many of you, just had a huge Winter snowstorm on March 24-25. We got about 7 inches here in my neck of the woods. But I am NOT complaining at all. I loved it! It was beautiful and magickal. Fell for about 36 hours straight. Here’s a pic of the first morning……
Beautiful isn’t it 🙂 I have seen a lot of complaining about Winter being so long, Spring to slow to come etc. I hear ya! I too can’t wait to lighten up my clothes, work in my garden, get outside!! But I believe that Mother Earth knows what she needs more then we do and we should let her just do what she needs to do!! Complaining won’t change it anyway..right? I say make the most of each day, no matter what the weather and do something fun to enjoy it. I made sure to collect some snow water and some nice-sized snowballs. I will love pulling those out in the heat of the Summer. They will be great to let the grandkids play with them, take a chunk and let it run down my hot neck, or use it to make a slushy margarita!! (Thanks Mike for that idea 🙂 To me, everyday is magickal if you look for it….now stop complaining! LOL!!
Spring..it’ll get here. We already see the snow melting and will be in the 50’s for a couple days this weekend. In the meantime, I am planning my garden, getting my lighter clothes ready, and perusing my cookbooks for lighter, healthier meals. I can’t wait to put my hands in the dirt and my face to the Sun and my back to a tree 🙂 I know that is what you all are ready for too! Take heart…it’s coming!!
Through all the frozen winter
My nose has grown most lonely
For lovely, lovely, colored smells
That come in springtime only.
The purple smell of lilacs,
The yellow smell that blows
Across the air of meadows
Where bright forsythia grows.
The tall pink smell of peach trees,
The low white smell of clover,
And everywhere the great green smell
Of grass the whole world over.”

Oh, and Blessed Full Moon to you all!! May the Goddess shine Her light and energy on you…always!
Blessings and Love
