Well.... the other half of our Xmas party showed up today, last night really, (many days late) but I was out on "the hill" doing a full moon rite with the Druids. It was such a lovely evening. Misty air, smelled like we might get a drop or two of rain in a few days which would be most needed. The Moon was delightlfully yet fleetingly obscured by thinly veiled wisps of clouds, which continued to cast a halo around the Moon. When the rite ended the halo vanished. Usually this time of year the mist freezes on the baby blades of grass, casting brilliant diamonds of sparkly color in the wake of ones shadow while walking back to the cars (usually well after midnight when the air has gone down by notches). Not one single blade of new grass
We opted to do the Druid ritual before the "eve" as so many people want to be elsewhere. My group will meet on the 1st in the late afternoon and will partake in the ritual I posted on healing. http://everythingunderthemoon.net/forum ... 36216.html
...but back to the Xmas party. They (step son and family) arrived with 2 pigs, I was so relieved to hear they weren't to be slaughtered for BBQ this time, but pets for the nephews. They just left to bring them to G-mas house where the nephews are staying. They need another animal over there like a hole in the head, but that's on G-ma (husbands mother). I believe they are trying to slowly introduce the pigs to the other animals today then I guess everyone is coming here for the countdown??? no one tells me anything, but those kids might just take off before the day is over, you never know with them. I may go to a friends if it gets too crazy over here. So I short, I don't know what I'm doing...tonight.
Happy New Year!
