The very first thing I had to do was get my mullein flowers washed and dried again and ready for medicine. (Medicine making is a fine Mabon activity, don't you think?)
The next project -the babes were still sleeping- was apple dolls. Which will probably become kitchen witches.
I've wanted to do this for a few years, but really thought I'd be terrible at it, and didn't expect much other than feelings of ineptitude and disappointment.
I am so happy to say I was wrong!
I am so in love with these ladies that have come to life, and am honored that they have showed themselves to me.
It was very hard for me to stop at three!
When the children awoke there was lots of time spent doing the usual sorts of things,
reading-- the first three chapters of The Mouse and the Motorcycle
art with stickers and scissors and markers
and bird feeders.
And that, friends, was that.
Here comes Fall...
