Blessed Mabon...swaps, apples and blugrass.

Blessed Mabon to all! This weekend we went apple picking to celebrate, and to reap the rewards. Then we went to Thornville Ohio to the Backwoods Festival. I bought soaps from my favorite soap company Elder Forest Soaps, a wooden crow for the yard, a catnip toy for Sam, a sage lavender and flower smudge stick and some home made "pepper butter".

Today I received my Mabon swap package from the lovely Holistic Knitter. I sent her a set of prayer flags. She sent me a Mabon Dreamcatcher, an apple cozy and some autumn note cards.

Our viking/rennie selves had an amazing time, as always,

I talked to a lot of really nice people though, found a goat farm named gallifrey farms (the owner was so excited when I got it), got a lot of compliments on my camera strap and ate some fantastic pizza at a place called JRs in downtown Lithopolis. I purchased a hand painted candle holder with bees/hives on it, several packets of heirloom seeds, Seth and I's initials carved from books, an herbal honey that can help with anxiety, cinnamon honey, lemon verbena honey and buckwheat honey.

This weekend I also started on a bowling league with my mom, sister and Aunt Gayle. We had so much fun. I generally suck at bowling, but I ended my last game with two strikes in the tenth frame. My mom …
