I’m Back From New York!

613

This was a very spiritual occurrence, we had in New Jersey looking over the Hudson River to Manhattan, New York. We’ve got rained out. But Mother Nature let us witness a beautiful moment.

Wow! This was a long trip! We went to St. Louis, Missouri; visited a friend in Columbus, Ohio; visited more friends in Niagara Falls, New York; crossed the border to see Toronto in Canada; went to New York City; saw the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and took a short break to see the in-laws in North Carolina, before we went back home to Dallas, Texas. About 3752 miles (6038 Kilometers) in 8 days were driven. Kevin, the girls and I had tons of fun on this trip. And we definitely have to go back to New York City to see more sights. In the days to come, I’ll write more blogs about this wonderful trip. ❤

Summer Solstice

Blessed Litha!

Blessed Litha!

Blessed Litha! Sacred fire!
Magical sunrise stirs desire
Queen of Heaven and of Earth
We celebrate your bright rebirth
We see your first blessed rays
In these magical solstice days
Ascending cycle to fulfil
Dancing on the silver hill.

Lilies burn with your desire
Intoxicating spirit fire
As oak and myrrh and mugwort burn
Elder, chamomile and fern
The sacred serpent eats the Spring
Then brings Autumn on the wing
Burning wreaths of sweet vervain
The Goddess will return again.

Rock of Ages ~ Casa Mañana, Fort Worth, Texas

Kevin and I saw the musical “Rock of Ages” at the Casa Mañana in Fort Worth, last night. It was very refreshing listening to songs, we used to know every word of the lyrics back when we were teenagers. Surprisingly, I found out right inside the theater, that we got seats in the first row. We were so close to the stage, that “Stacee Jaxx” couldn’t resist flipping a thong in my face. I kept the thong as a souvenir. 😀 😉

Overall, the show was awesome. We had an amazing evening, enjoying great music on a Saturday evening. Kevin and I definitely have to repeat that. ❤

Kobolds & Mushrooms

The fairies like our garden so much, they sent out the kobold to grow some mushrooms for the garden. Sara was happy, that Mrs. Rabbit pointed the mushrooms out to her. I told Sara, that the kobold must have been very busy taking good care of the mushrooms. Now, she’s waiting for the kobold to grow more mushrooms around the fairy house. 😉 But for the mushrooms to grow, we need a little bit more rain.

The kobold added some mushrooms in our garden.
