Greetings 🙂 How is everyone doing today? Well I hope. It’s summer time here in Árann and that means long summer days and warm summer nights spent ambling about the woods. You may not know this about me, but I am a keen gardener and the beautiful summer roses in my garden at this time of year bring me endless amounts of joy.
On Saturday last, the 21st of June, it was one of my favorite days of the year; the Summer Solstice. It was marked here in Árann Wood by yet another party (we do like to enjoy ourselves!) and this time it was my time to play the host with the most 🙂 I spent all of last week planning the big event and gathering together all the bits and bobs required. On Friday I gave my sett a thorough cleaning and Saturday was spent decorating the place with flowers and bunting and all sorts of shiny things (I had to watch the magpies that night as sometimes my shiny things seem to go missing when they are around!) Thankfully lots and lots of my friends showed up and the mead flowed and the music (provided by some very talented faeries) echoed all around the wood and a great time was had by all.
Did you get up to anything interesting for the Solstice? If it’s summer time where you live are you enjoying the sunshine and renewed energy the earth has at this time of year? Whatever you are up to I hope it is filled with positivity and brings lot’s of smiles to lot’s of faces 🙂 Until next time, stay shining 🙂
P.S. My friend Heather has asked me to let you know that she is running a competition for all you amigurumi lovers out there 🙂 Just head to http://heatherlovesthemoon.com/2014/06/23/midsummer-and-competition/ for all the info 🙂
