Morning gifts: Venus rising
Sunrise over the Pines
Praying Mantis on the kitchen window frame.
I fixed ice coffee for our morning beverage.
I lit the candles and the oil lamps.
The amber glass candle inserts were a thrift store find yesterday.
I found four.
I brought out the "Power Out" journal. My husband went to check to see how far reaching the outage was. He saw power company trucks fixing a transformer. We would have electricity before long.
I dressed by the sunrise. Within the hour the power was on.
Another hot day is forecasted. Watering has begun.
Yesterday's gifts were many. The thrift store had this dipper gourd someone had made into a lovely scoop. Our dipper gourds are forming. I see how to make scoops.
The Obsidian necklace and earrings came yesterday. It is my stone for August. My daughter and I shopped together for this. The swan will remind me to keep my neck back!
The birds planted sunflowers and now they are blooming.
Each day has so many gifts!
For Harvest Day, my husband dug the last of the potatoes. I read Rosemary can help keep potatoes fresh and help to delay sprouting. I picked nine tomatoes. Some I picked a bit green. They will ripen on the counter and avoid splitting.
A basket of yellow squash finished our celebration of Celtic Harvest.
