I don't have any rituals, but I need to clean out my garage. I am hoping to work on  that in the next couple weeks. It rained today, so that was not going to happen.

no rituals, but we need to sweep and mop the garage it really needs it! We also want to repaint the deck before Kains birthday party. We just painted it last year but used cheap outdoor paint so it chipped off on the steps

We don't have any rituals that we do for summer solstice. I watched an interesting video about what they do at Stone Henge, though. They watch the sunrise and bring in the summer. It's neat and I would participate if I lived there. They had 20,000+ people attend!

No rituals.  We are living in a fixer-uper, you don't want to see MY to-do list.  I really want to put new screens in my living room and a sliding glass door in my kitchen but we don't have the funds to...
