Versus hurts them more than us

Published June 26, 2017 by Lunapo

I was scrolling through the interwebs and I came across an image where a church declared Neil deGrasse Tyson is an “Agent of Satan”. 

I have not been shy about my love for NgT not for my feeling that science is spirituality and the two are the same. If I had to name a profit for my beliefs, it would be Sagan and Tyson. 

I got defensive. My initial post was going to be ugly. 

But then I remembered something very important. 

They are the same. 

They need each other. 

We, humanity, needs both of them to work in conjunction. 

A small find

Today Hubby was accompanied by Witchlette to the craft store. While there, Witchlette, still on a kick from Litha, saw Fae houses on sale and insisted on getting one for the Fae friends who share our dwelling.

Continuing growing

I’d say I’ve been rather successful as a first time potted plant grower. 

Witchlette’s Easter basket gifts of grow kits have exploded. 

Sunflowers

Watermelon

A row of carrots

Tiny garden beans

Some things I would do differently:

  • Put plants into bigger pots to begin with, now that I understand the spacing for root structures. 
  • Learn more about what plants need as far as sun and shade. This is quite foreign to me. The potato plant died almost as soon as it was moved to the back patio and I’ve killed two batches of basil plants. It may have also been the heat they were exposed to in conjunction with the extremely hot afternoon sun which the front of the house gets. 

My ultimate goal is to have a full garden to grow some fruits and veggies to supplement our usual intake. This was, for me, a successful year and has been a good start to many more years of growing in my gardening skills? <Wink wink garden pun>

Solstice day

Published June 21, 2017 by Lunapo

Today we enjoyed the Solstice.

After braving the morning rain for a lovely breakfast, we did some errands and enjoyed lunch at home with a movie and home popped popcorn for Watch It Wednesday.

As Witchling napped and Witchlette and I played, the sun burned through the rest of the clouds and it finally looked like what we all imagine Litha looks like.

Upon his waking, the three of us went to a local park and played in the warm afternoon sun, including a good amount of puddle splashing.

At dinner, we said a Litha prayer and utilized my new offering bowl to make Libations.

We talked about what we want to do this summer.

After dinner and more playing, we drizzled honey on our Fairy cakes and left them in a small thicket at the front of our driveway with the Libations from dinner.

The Littles enjoyed their own cakes in the Fae’s honor with a summer time smores topping.

All in all, a very blessed Solstice indeed!
