Baking chicken for enchilladas – 6:30am
Fonzie gets a bronze statue here next week, The water board sent us all info that there are alarming amounts of Lead in our water – due to the old pipes used in this area. “So run your faucets about a minute before you use any water” – well that explains the plants not quite living up to snuff and sorry kids about exposing you to harsh lead levels and the raydon for this last year and a half. If its not one thing is is certainly another. We have a lovely neighborhood with nosy (attentive) neighbors and an old fashion feel. There is always the give and take. Our lake is still closed – school is almost starting and this will be known as the summer of the great flood and the beach/lake was closed all summer.
It is getting light later in the morning and my witch group pondered the season coming early recently and what if anything that means as a reflection of man’s actions on the planet. I think that each season – like each child is its own. You know pretty much what to expect and the milestones and when things will happen but they happen on their own and in their own time. Fall might seem to be coming early this year but each season is its own “being”. I am hoping for a long Indian Summer and an easy Fall – This time of year in the past has always brought some intense storms and winds and power outages. But this has been the summer of power outages and intense storms so nice and quiet please – an ease into Fall and slip into winter slowly as if into an icy pool. Let us get used to it slowly and not force us to have to choose between heating oil and food. The next few weeks for me include a redo of the curtains – more layered and some wool for all. Electric blankets and more fabric covered furnishings – I am thinking that it will at least appear to be warmer when the cold does come.
The shift to fall includes more purges of our old stores inventory. I am definatly not going back into the antiques biz. Two stores downtown have closed in our town in two months. A big Mall opened in Waukesha though. I just dont have the appetite for all the junking right now. Its a new season.
Full Moon on the 16th and many witches are casting for the healing of the great Mother Earth.
