Samhain was so great!

Sunday, October 30, 2005
We had a beautiful candlelight spiral, and honored our ancestors, as the tradition of Samhain dictates. It was really really great. Hopefully we'll get some pictures to post. We all wore our witch hats, and robes... and it was FREEZING. And wet! The moisture in the air curled the paper on some of our shrines that we created.

Oh! The best part was that everytime we had silence, the animals on the block would make noises. From sheep... to horses... to dogs... to donkeys, I felt like I was on Old MacDonalds farm. It was great! I envy Ligeiyas yard.

I want to do luminaries EVERY time, now. Thank the Goddess for Pacific Circle this year... otherwise, I never would have known how cool luminaries were. Easy clean-up too. I'm all about the clean-up.

Shopping for Samhain

Thursday, October 27, 2005
Well, I shopped for Samhain today... got some good deals on the makings of ancestor shrines. Bought some wooden boxes at Ms... finally invested in a coven glue gun. If any coven needed that in their box of stuff, its us. Bought a few rolls of harvesty ribbon that was on sale. Bought bags for our luminaries. I think its going to be beautiful. Now, if only I had a nice SLR camera with which to take pictures... Oh well... hopefully my disposable will do the job!

Lets get the Inner Court all up in here!

Evoking the Excrementals

Monday, October 24, 2005
Saturday was very interesting... Ligeiya lives in the BEST out-in-the-country area. We got there a little after 10am, and played with her dogs for a while before getting down to business. One of her puppies wanted to come home with me... I just KNOW it.

Anywho, we get outside and notice the poop. Now, I saw a few random donkeys on the corner and wondered why the owner hadn't tied them up. Turns out thats because there IS no owner! They have stray burros! So, I took the poop patrol, and started shoveling it into a big pile. Ligeiya and Dominique started hoeing and raking the area. I think it was Dominique who made the remark about evoking the excrementals. It was funny.

Ligeiya's hubby got the riding mower running a little bit so that totally helped- until it died. Then he got the plow hooked up to his truck. It was great. I wish I would have remembered my camera.

Anyway, we plotted out the general ritual space a little bit. Samhain is going to be great!
