Spring Has Sprung

I can tell Spring has sprung because I’m craving fresh vegetables and fruits and I want to be more active.  I want to get outside and play.  I want to blow bubbles, fly kites, throw Frisbees, and take walks.  I have visions of taking Tree Faerie to the park.  I want to go feed the ducks in our neighborhood.  I want to blossom!


Overall, the weekend was good.  Tree Faerie had diarrhea all weekend, but that didn’t really stop us from having fun.  The church’s Ostara celebration on Saturday was fun, despite the incessant wind and cold.  Thankfully I had blankets in the car.  Tree Faerie enjoyed running around the park and exploring.  She didn’t take part in the egg hunt because she woke up from her nap just as the hunt started.  She still wanted to be held, so we wandered around helping another little girl who already had several eggs.  Tree Faerie and I didn’t find any eggs, but we did pick up trash and throw it away.  That is one thing I love about our group – we always leave a place cleaner than the way we found it.


I even went out Saturday night after I got Tree Faerie in bed.  I met up with a wonderful lady at the Flying Saucer, where we each had a Woodchuck Amber.  It was a lot of fun, and I was back home by 11:30.  This is the first time I’ve gone out and left DTTF with Tree Faerie after she’s been put to bed.  Thankfully it went without a hitch. 


Sunday afternoon we had our Ostara celebration for our Outer Court, and it was fabulous.  This one was indoors, so we didn’t have to suffer the wind and cold again.  We dyed a few eggs, performed a ritual, and then had a Spring-themed feast, which was centered on a build-your-own salad.  I really enjoy spending time with the Outer Court members. 


This week is lining up to be only slightly less stressful than last week.  If I keep going at this rate, I’ll be due for a massage long before July gets here.

Reading your posts make me miss my friend, Lotus, even more. She and I did a couple of great rituals together last summer. She is my only true pagan friend, and I really miss our goddess chats. :(

I'm glad you had a great holiday weekend even though it was cold. We bundled the kids up in coats and Easter Egg hunted regardless of the chill! :-)
