  • So far I posted two blogs - one of which is just a vid, but I found it lovely... Beyond that, I have a busy day & a B-Day party, so I won't be doing much, but I'll have a small ritual this night once all is said and done for the day.


    Here are the blogs...


    Blessed Lammas

  • Sorry Hot-Mama, I'm just getting back on... Lammas is start of Autumn and was the time of the first of three harvest celebrations, and so this is a holiday of fruition and also of preparation for the oncoming winter, as well as the God's impending death. The Goddess enters her phase as Crone. It is a time of giving thanks for all that we have, all that we will have, and all that others have sacrificed for us.

    See why you should be reading my blog?
