Hot and noisy Fourth around here. Kids setting off firecrackers all day. It is bad for us because our little Gwennie dog is frightened of these sounds. Then last night three or four nearby neighbors went all out with lots of fireworks, so much booming, banging and popping. In New York state, fireworks are illegal. Oh well.
We did enjoy a delicious barbecued meal. My husband did a wonderful job grilling sirloin steak and corn on the cob. I actually was able to make salads for us with my homegrown lettuce and three, count them, 3 cherry tomatoes. There are more little tomatoes setting up, but only 3 were ripe. So delicious. I did get a late start with my planting this year.
The Full Moon was awesome this month. Called the Thunder Moon, this huge glowing orb hung over the house and shone down with amazing light. A summer moon does not have that sterile-like cold glow that happens during winter months. Gazing at this moon caused an almost hypnotic state for me. Symbol of the Goddess, the Full Moon is a great Light to work magick by.
It is Thursday today, but feels like Monday. My husband took a couple of days off before the Fourth, so I am really screwed up, schedule wise. No matter, it has been too hot to do much of anything really.
Gotta go water the plants. How are you surviving the heat?
