Merry Meet and Merry Part, and Merry Meet again

Monday Medley

The snowpack is melting after a relatively mild Sunday, though we are preparing for another storm headed our way. The deck and porch are clear, the bird feeders are full, baking supplies are laid in, and the Yule tree light situation has been sorted out!  Good, positive energy is flowing through the house!

I am excited that there will be a Full Moon on Yule! That is a double bonus for us Wiccans. We love the Full Moon, a time to honor the Goddess and work magick. To have a Full Moon occur on a major Sabbat, such as the Winter Solstice....well, that just gives me goosebumps!! This is one of the reasons that make me love being Wiccan: that Nature is always ready to give you a boost, to give new energy, to acknowledge the connection we have with Nature, Earth, and the Universe! There is never a dull moment. Always something wonderful to celebrate, every single day!

Our Yule Tree, not quite finished
I have enjoyed reading the blogs I follow over the last week..everyone is sharing their Yule preparations, recipes, crafts, beautiful photos! It is a real pleasure being part of this Blog Community. I appreciate every single one I read! And I am amazed at the fact that I now have 39 followers! How cool is that! I am planning a giveaway soon, so keep an eye out for that.

Have a wonderful day, and blessings to you!

Brew me a cup for a winter's night.
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I'll toast our bright eyes,
my sweetheart fair.

I think this will be a pretty powerful full moon. Glad to hear that you have been able to somewhat dig out. We had nothing but rain, but that is how the city has been lately. Last winter we had the most snow we have had in years...and none of it was that kind of snow that you just 'couldn't' get to work.

I love to look at the full moon, but otherwise I´m not that happy about it because I sleep so bad that night. But it is beautiful!

I haven´t started to prepare anything for christmas really, but today i wrote about Saint Lucia´s day that we celebrate over here. Like all big holidays it has its roots in our pagan past.

Have a great day now!
