I am back!

Did you miss me?

I have been sidelined by a whole bunch of nasty stuff, but yesterday I decided that I had had enough and I need to pick myself up, ignore all the crap and get my life back on track. I have a dozen projects, both old and new, I want to work on and I want to give my house and garden a proper spring cleaning.

The cats are all healthy and happy and today we even have sunshine for a change. We had lots of rain and then some more and my garden is rather squishy. I hope I will be able to get some work done out there soon.

This is the cake I baked for Valentine's Day and MamaCat and her new best friend.

Have a great day everyone, see you soon.

My weekend contained a trip to the farmer's market, a little sewing, a little knitting, lots of yummy food and unfortunately a lot of back pain as well.

Happy Imbolc/St. Brigid's Day/Candlemas/Groundhog Day

Whatever you observe or celebrate this weekend eat, drink and be merry.

We will have an Irish themed lunch in honor of St. Brigid on Saturday and if the groundhog predicts 6 more weeks of Winter it will be groundhog stew on Sunday. Nah, just kidding, it will actually be Charleston Shrimp and Grits. I think there are not enough holidays in the US calendar and life is too short to miss an occasion for feasting and merry making therefore we decided to celebrate all kinds of holidays this year. And so this weekend we celebrate than the return of light and the beginning of the agricultural year. And don't forget to do a rain dance for Saturday. ;-)

I made an Imbolc candle and a St. Brigid's Cross.
