    I think, since it is going to be very nice here, I will ride my horse and start buying wood and posts for my coop and dog run......you have to love spring. [​IMG]
    Maybe we will have a bonfire if the weather holds like it is suppose to.

    Per usual we're going to see if we really can balance an egg at the time of the equinox. We'll color some eggs, tell some stories and eat lots of food! Woot!

    Actually it's Friday...but no matter...

    starting some seeds is good. Eating food that has seeds in it honour's the new beginnings.

    Colouring eggs definitely.

    Friday, 7:44 am EST, is the vernal equinox. Ostara is the celebration of spring, of renewal, it's time to plant, it's time to get back outdoors and enjoy all the newness of the season. It's my absolute favorite time of the year.

    Dag! My calender is wrong??

    Well, I am glad to know not to use that one!

    We hang eggs in the trees. (Cracks me up when people do this with no idea why! [​IMG] )

    We'll plant some seeds and have a feast! I like to use up the "stores" from winter.
