Full Beaver Moon

I stood in the front yard before supper
and watched as the full Beaver Moon rose.

I planned to serve our savory pie at 6pm.

I have a hot cup of ginger tea and a moon bath planned for later.
November's full moon is also know as the full Frosty Moon.
It is not frosty tonight but I will need a blanket as I catch moon beams.
Happy Full Beaver Moon!

Your full moon is great...too many clouds here. I can see why this would be the Frosty Moon!

PS: Sometimes these word verifications are a little funny "dingbot".

Beautiful moon shot Sherry. It poured rain here all day yesterday (tuesday). I am not complaining as we needed the rain.

I enjoy it when you name the moons. It gives them such character.

Cheryl said...

Dear Sherry.....again I am never fail to lift me with your beautiful words....

We had a frost last night....the moon was magical......

and as for that pie.....I could be rude and ask for two servings but one will be fine thank looks delicious......

Dear Marmee,
My feet are all cozy in their wool slippers this morning! They are washable too!
I am thinking about next Tuesday's project. Not sure what it will be. I do want to make some silk slippers to do my Stumpwork on. I might get those started. I have a boiled wool sweater that has lovely crewel work on it. It is white and very pretty. I am thinking a hatband hat and matching bag would be nice for December wearing. I could do them too. I might have time for all three.
November is pie month at my house.
The savory pie was delicious and so easy to make!
I am thinking come January I will start a cooking journal. Since Wednesday is now "cook from a recipe" night I think having a cooking blog would be fun. (Normally I make my dishes up.)Each month I showcase a different sort of cooking at my house. Maybe a spot to share ideas would be inspiring for me and for others.
December is all about cookies!
I do think life is fun!

Dear Chris,
It is cold and frosty at your house I think!
We just began Indian Summer yesterday. I was walking when the wind shifted to the south. I could almost smell the gulf air!
It is to be lovely this afternoon. I hope to be outside.
When it is in the 60's in November I often see butterflies and bees!
As the Indians would say,
All my relations,

Dear Lisa,
Glad you received some rain. It really has been too dry for you this year. I am good on rain. We had a wet spring and summer. Autumn seems to be just fine too.
I was just talking about Indian Summer starting yesterday...the Full Moon names I use are from the American Indian tradition. I named the New Moons a few years ago!
(I was shocked the 12 Grandmother Moons were nameless.)
I hope you also have Indian Summer
I am dressing for my time outside today.
I am thinking Indian Princess in my mocs and beaded headband. I am gathering seeds and lovely spent pods for my potpourri bowl.
All my relations,

Dear Cheryl,
I thought of you as I faced east and watched the Moon rise last night. I think you are 6 hours ahead of me. As I bowed to Miss Moon I sent a blessing to you and your loved ones. I do hope November brings smiles to all of your family.
My savory pie was delightful. For some reason once food is made into a pie it tastes delicious.
This was as spinach, mushroom, onion pie with fresh garden sage, nutmeg and parmesan cheese.
I began working from a recipe but ended up only having the onion they called for. I closed my book and began creating!
It is a compliment to chef when seconds are asked for!
All my relations,

That pie looks so good. I'm making a quiche tomorrow night. Yum.

What's a moon bath? It sounds interesting.

Rose said...

That savory pie looks delicious, especially with such a beautiful crust, Sherry! I like your idea of cooking a new recipe one night a week--I might try that to liven up my menus!
Hope you didn't get too cold taking your moon bath:)

Chrissie said...

Happy Full Beaver Moon, Sherry :-)

Q said...

Dear Marnie,
Quiche is always yummy!
A moon bath is like sun bathing only easier on your skin! I think moon beams actually subtract sun damage and they always leave my face refreshed and glowing!
Try a moon bath...
in the summer I love a midnight moon bath!
Keeper of the Moon,

Q said...

Dear Rose,
I had to wear a hat and wrap up in my blanket but I was able to have some Moon time!
I am needing to be more creative in the kitchen now that the vegetable garden is resting. Sometimes it is hard to get excited for supper since I fix it most every night.
Doing a recipe helps to jazz me up. I also think I will get a cook book every month either from the secondhand bookseller or the library. I study different cultures each month so it would be fun to learn how to cook with different spices.
So much to learn!

Q said...

Dear Chris,
Happy Full Beaver Moon to you too!
I made a wish for you.
Hope all is going well.
