A Full Michaelmas

Today we spent a lot of time cultivating our will forces. In other words, we did a lot. From collecting horse chestnuts (really, what will we do with them all?) to making conker dragons. From kneading dough to forming our own individual dragon breads. From harvesting apples to slicing and drying, cooking and saucing. From collecting hazelnuts to... well, we had to leave something for tomorrow!

Many hands make light work, and we had a lot of fun. It was a full Michaelmas, spent manifesting, transforming, and playing together. And with Moonshine's help, I managed to take pictures.

    What a wonderful, wonderful day you had! Boy, you sure know how to celebrate something; wish I lived with you guys...I'll bet my kids do too. LOL!

    That is such a cute dragon (?) that you made with the chestnuts! Your bread is amazing! Your little one kneads better than I do. :}

    And, oh my goodness, those apples are gorgeous! Ours are so gnarly and pocked. Luckily, they do taste amazing (like the best pink ladies we've ever had), but I wish they look more like the ones you had.

  2. Okay, please email me your apple drying secret. GemSprightly absolutely LOVES dried apples but we always just get them from my aunt who makes them...it's time I learned how to do this my own self.

  3. Aw, thanks Teresa. It is a "dragon," as it kind of slithers when you pull it, and the pattern is from a book. I'm still waiting for someone to write one called, "1001 uses for horse chestnuts."


Thank you for taking the time to leave a message. I appreciate your sweet words so much!
