Card PullΒ 

Thursday, March 23rd 2017 

Today I felt drawn to pull cards from my Eternal Crystals Oracle Cards by Jade-Sky…

Fluorite ~ Spirit Guides- 3rd eye chakra

You are never alone. To find or recognize your spirit guide, speak to them from inside or out loud. You will know they are there by a tingle or sudden sensation. You are protected. Fluorire helps enhance your intuition.

Zincite ~ Physical Body – Root chakra
You know what is good for you and what is not. Listen to your body. You may be focusing on your physical appearance too much.Zincite is excellent for removing energy blocks. It helps encourage your own personal power, creativity and physical energy.

Another preverbial “slap in the face”. 😊




Asparagus bed/Winter Savory Bed

Yes!! Yes!!! Yes!!!! Can you tell I am excited? πŸ˜† Ha! 

Winter Savory

My Winter Savory has survived the winter so far. So very happy about that.

Moist ground

Garden dirt!!

There is mud on my boots and the garden soil is being exposed. The smell is intoxicating. The birds are starting to twitter and the fowl are venturing out of the coop more and more. Oh, I absolutely adore spring. ❀

Today is the day! I get to start seeds…*squeal* I have soil inside warming and flats and recycled cell packs waiting on the porch. My fingers are itching….

Flats and recycled cell packs.

+8c in the greenhouse…Buddha is finally warming up.

The soil in the greenhouse is finally warming up, as is Buddha. +8c on the greenhouse at 9am. Woohoo! 

🌱Off and away to my la la land🌱



Morning card pull…

Tuesday, March 22nd 2017

From my Sacred Path Cards by Jamie Sams I pulled…

Kokopelli – Fertility….a shift away from the old, limiting ideas and a move forward. I am being asked to use my talents to create especially after things have been slow…Kokopelli says plant now and you will be productive. It is up to me.🌱

West Shield – Introspection/goals….”in all cases, the West Shield speaks off the ability to complete our goals, the acknowledgement of our inner-strengths and the power to find and know our own answers. Remember that the opinions of others become mixed with our own doubts and become limitations when we forget to Enter the Silence just like Bear.🐻

Both these speaks loads of truth to me as I have been struggling with a lot the past few months. It is also time for starting my garden seeds and Spring. A renewal of life. 



Card pull…


I have decided to pull a card a day to help me focus. I have pulled cards for myself for years…my first was in 1992 in Gr10. It was my spiritual awakening. It was from my mom’s deck. They will be my next card deck purchase. 



Blessed Ostara!

Blessed Ostara! To those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.🌸🏡

Blessed Mabon! To my beautiful friends in the Southern Hemisphere. πŸπŸ‚

Our day was full of sun shine and signs of Spring.

Spring Equinox sunrise

Our day was not full of ceremony unless you consider our traditional Monday errands in town ceremony. 😊 It was so nice to soak in some sun and visit with my mom-in-love. I needed a recharge.

Snowshoe Hare

Yesterday while eating our dinner a Snowshoe Hare sat in our yard soaking up the last of the winter sun. He/she sat there for close to an hour. It’s coat is changing over to the brown spring colour from his winter white camoflage. 

This evening after my daughters went to dreamland. I started to plan on what seeds to start tomorrow. I filled a few pots and cell packs with soil, all the while breathing in deep the scent of earth. Ahhhhh! 

Moist soil waiting to feed new growth

Well my day has come to an end. Bill is off to work at the sawmill and I have a little sadness in my heart. My Oma passed away in her sleep today…she is with Opa again. I think it was the perfect day to connect with Opa. ☺ I am happy she no longer suffers. 🌷🌷🌷

Sleep well my friends. I promise I will write more soon. 


Fun with trees🌲

The family likes to tease me about the amount of photos I take of flowers, plants, trees and foliage. Haha! 
I *cough* have a few…ahem.πŸ˜† 

They are the best models for me. They don’t move. Well not all the time. They are easiest to photograph when my hands are super shaky.


Fire and snow

In the fall we had cut down a large amount of Poplar trees that were taking over the yard. Most of the wood went into our woodshed to season for the 2017 or 2018 winter heating. The rest of the limbs and broken pieces that are not good for burning in our furnace got put into a large pile and tarped for the winter. We figured once there was enough snow on the ground and cabin fever had set in we would wait for beautiful sunny day and then light the sucker. 😊

Today was the perfect day! 

The day started out at -17c and cloudy. By 10am it reached -2c and sunshine in the strong blue sky. β˜‰

We all bundled up and set out to light our bonfire. First task was removing the tarp. The weight of the snow and ice had compressed the 6ft high brush pile into a 3ft one. It also meant the tarp had frozen to the ground. Thankfully it was an old holey tarp, which meant cutting it down the middle and peeling it open didn’t make us feel too bad. Milena helped crush and dig the snow away from the edges for us. 

Once we finally got the tarp pulled away and the fire lit. The relaxing began. Out came the battered and broken camping chairs. 

Milena brought out her Dad’s Tonka toys(circa 1978’ish) and had a blast. Seren sat and wrote in her journal and read a book called “Ghost Soldiers” all under the protective and watchful eyes of Mr.Odin. 

We pruned dead Poplar branches and started clean up behind our woodshed. Ugh! So much fucking junk. Excuse the language, but after the amount of junk we have cleaned up on this property in the past 2yrs I am so tired of it. I lost count of the amount of trips to the dump. It makes me so sad and a tad twitchy.😜 Anyways, as I was saying…we started cleaning the old shed up. There is rotting lumber, garbage, old rotting engine parts and other …stuff. Bill removed the lumber and we threw it on the fire. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯AhhhhπŸ”₯πŸ”₯

By 2:30pm most of the fire was roaring nicely and it was +4c out. Gorgeous and warm. It made me crave Spring, but I am okay if it snows again. It means that we can have another smaller fire without worrying about sparks.

At 4pm we cooked hotdogs on the BBQ. Our roasting sticks were kind of frozen into the ground at the garden fire pit. Oops. πŸ˜† That’s okay. We BBQ’d the hotdogs and ate them around the fire. Mmm…

We watched the sun sink slowly into the horizon before calling it a day and heading inside. 

It was a beautiful day of memories made and my heart full.πŸ’™πŸ’š I sent New Moon intentions up with the flames, shrouded in sweet smelling smoke and ash floating in the air currents. β˜„

I will leave you now with one last photo…Happy New Moon blessing to you all.πŸŒ‘πŸŒš
