Fall- a concious stream.

I just love this season. The leaves changing to warm hues and the air getting cooler.. warm cider with cinnamon and a bunch of cinnamon candles scent your house while cookies bake in the oven. Watching your family rake the yard and see your son hop around the yard with his own real rake made of metal and wood and its even his size!...the sound of the acorns pop pop popping in the fire pit with the burning leaves. Sleeping with the windows open and 3 blankets.. listening to your son yell around the house "FUUUUUUUUU" while holding up the Kung Fu Panda DVD. Watching the Hawkeyes and having a beer.. and then rubbing it in to my east coast friends when we kick penn states ass.. yep its lower case for a reason. I honestly did wear a hawkeye shirt to the blue and white penn state party back home in Jersey.. it was really blue and white. Venison chilli with 4 kinds of beans.. mmmm with crackers crumbled on top and a bit of cheese. I think I am already craving turkey..definitely stuffing and cranberry sauce. We will be in line at ToysRus @ midnight before you know it..well only us crazy ones. Does the goddess ever have to wait in lines? Does Hades have bathrooms? Persephone will soon know...if she eats the pomegranate she will have to go. But for now I must blow out my candles and open the windows and find my 4 pillows.. and blankets.. ahh the scent of campfire lingers on the breeze from our burning leaves..I cozy down in my bed and drift down to dreamland like the leaves on the trees.

The "Would Be" Peace

It is a lazy Sunday morning.. the entire family has slept in till 8:30 (a huge deal!) I have gotten out of bed and made banana pancakes, and put on my Pandora station and made myself coffee. All is going well... minus my 2 year old having a random freak out about some unknown factor. It never fails does it? you almost find a moment of pure blissful peace.. and then SCREAM!

The Switch

So recently with in the past few days since the Harvest moon, a full moon on the first day of fall, I have been feeling buzzed with energy. This is not a very often occurrence for me as you know. I have just been aching to read and do magic. I don't get it. How can I just go from blah to woohoo like the flip of a switch?

Labor Day...Literally!

This weekend, while most families are enjoying the "last weekend of summer" My family and I have been been doing a major cleaning spree. We have literally done 10 or more loads of laundry, washing all the bedding and summer clothes, fall clothes.. yep done it. In fact I was up till 2 am folding last night.. But the end product is what it is all about.. a clean home that is ready to get harvest decor and warm candles and warm fall goodness!
