I went out on my bike Saturday to a local farmers market, I wanted to escape the shops, the noise and the lights. I made a lovely thick vegetable stew with lentils and pearl barley for us all....Later as the evening drew in I brought in a tree from the garden bought a few weeks ago, it was damp and heavy with the sharp tang of pinewood and I dressed it with glass droplets and prayer cards from my friend Lisa...I have carols playing and the house smells of Frankinsence and winter spices. There is a big fat Thrush on the Rowan outside just sitting like me, silently watching the day...................

I wanted to light my second candle under the fading stars of night, I wanted it touched by the rising sun, to sparkle like two brilliant jewels amongst the glory of the frosty land that I love so very much.
Have a peaceful and joyous week
Hugs Lynn xx

I seem to be sewing all of the time
I have a book it is like a bible to me......'Simple Abundance' by Sarah Ban Breathnach, 13 years ago it made me think about what I really wanted from my life, I am still struggling with this question, it is still a terrible battle.
How do I live a life without material desire, I covert so many things. I desire so much, I have a passion for loveliness, both in creative form and spirituality, fortunately nature provides most of what I desire, but there are other things, that have to be bought, and paid for!! I have over the years succeeded in cutting myself off from some of the temptations of material desires, and from the people that peddle them, yet I still find myself unable to ditch the computer, the car, the radio. I have to work to pay the bills, where do we find the balance, how do we make our lives authentic? How do we care for our soul.
Be Blessed with a loving week
Love and hugs Lynn xx

I am the waning moon,
The Goddess who is fading from the land,
When you see my power fade
And the leaves fall from the trees;
When snow obliterates like death,
All trace of me upon the earth.
Then look for me in the Moon,
And there in the heavens you will see the soul of me
Soaring still amongst the stars.
When I am hidden, I am renewing
When I am waning I am making ready for my return
Remember my promise and look within you,
And there you will always find the spirit of me.
May we all be blessed with a loving and peaceful week.
Love and hugs Lynn xx

My beautiful gift from Lisa
I just adored the wrapping
Where does the weekend go???
I am busy sewing all the time now, for the fayre, it's good fun , BUT...my house is a tip..and I am wearing the most odd clothing combinations...it's whatever comes out of the wardrobe first, Hubie is doing his best to ignore the pins in his heels, ( I must be more careful) and there are cotton trails all over the carpets, then there are the rather strange cobbled together meals we have taken to eating. Does anyone else have these problems!!! Any advice that you can give will be gratefully accepted.....
I am so thrilled with my beautiful gift from Lisa Hannah Moth to Flame Studio the Maddona cards are so gorgeous, just my thing, thankyou so much Lisa and I just adored the way they were wrapped, have a look at Laura's Etsy pages they are really pretty.
I hope you all have the most peaceful and magical week..... Me too in my dreams........ Love and Hugs Lynn xxx
