What a crazy week it’s been! Kids went back to school for two days, then had a three day weekend. They are back today and tomorrow, then have a four day weekend for Rosh Hashana! Next week they’ll be back to school full time, and we can get into a real, regular routine. Thank goodness! With Miss M. and Middle Guy both in the same school this year (her first year in the middle school!), it’s been a bit of a transition for all. It’s been quite some time since 2 of the kids needed to be ready at the exact same time, lol!
In my garden this week, we’ve harvested all the mugwort we had left, got it dried and ready to use! I love that stuff, lol! This week, the rue, catnip and the last of the white sage will start coming out. Mr. B. is already starting to clear the beds out and get them ready for planting in the spring. This year we are going to winter over some of the herbs and hope that they will make it through the
frigid wasteland of NJ winter.
On other fronts, It’s September and Mabon is getting closer all the time! Tomorrow is the New Moon for the month. The New Moon is time for new beginnings time to start new ventures, to look for a job or to attract new love! It’s also a good time for renewing love and romance with your partner. *insert eyebrow wiggle here*
The 22 is Mabon (Ostara if you are in the Southern Hemisphere) and the moon goes full within hours afterward! This will be the first time that’s happened since 1991 and won’t happen again until 2029. Time to get some serious Mabon/Full Moon magic on!
There are still spots open for the Haunted Blog Tour and for guest bloggers for The 31 Days of Halloween. If you haven’t signed up yet, get busy, lol!
And today is the last day to enter to win a 6 pack of tarts from Tempting Tarts! Sign up by noon to enter.
Hope you are off to a great start to this short week!
