With the passing of Lammas, the summer harvest is waning. Now is the time to begin planning and planting our fall gardens. Even though temperatures will soon begin to drop, it doesn’t mean that we can’t grow fresh produce. We just need to be intentional and choose plants that thrive in cooler weather. Here are […]
July flew by in a blur of canning and preserving. A coworker says that time moves faster as we get older. Lately, I tend to agree with him. I cannot believe that it is already time for the August 2019 calendar printable. Here is a look at what we have on tap for August. Lammas/Lughnasadh […]
I cannot believe that Lughnasadh is only a week away. I somehow managed to once again underestimate the amount of work required by the garden and lost track of time. Now, I am in full Lughnasadh planning mode. To help you and your little ones celebrate the upcoming Sabbat, I wanted to share a free […]
We are still a couple of weeks away from Lughnasadh, but it is already incredibly hot here. August is always the hottest month of the year, so the next few weeks are going to be even rougher temperature wise. I dislike using the oven during the summer months. It heats up the entire house. So, I […]
Book: Parenting Pagan Tots by Janet Callahan Rating: 4 stars Being a parent is challenging. I believe that being a Pagan parent is even more challenging.

We are still weeks away from Lughnasadh, but the harvest season is already in full swing here on the homestead. I love gardening. I love providing and preserving healthy food for my family.

As Pagans, we never lack a reason to celebrate. With eight Sabbats and thirteen Esbats, we have a lot of occasions to remember. At one point, I bought a fancy planner from a craft store. (Of course, I used a 40% off coupon.) However since I forgot to use it most of the time, it wasn’t very […]
One of my goals for this blog is to provide more resources for Pagan parents. When I google homeschool or homeschooling, the majority of the search results are based around other religions. Honestly, I feel left out sometimes. So, I am trying to be proactive and create resources. For Lammas or Lughnasadh, I created this free maze […]
We are only about a week past Litha, but the Lammas harvest season is already in full force here on the homestead. We haven’t had a lot of spare time, but we did acquire a new book recently. Little ones, homeschooling and related things have been on my mind lately. Unfortunately, I haven’t found many Pagan themed children’s books. So when I saw Rupert’s Tales: The Nature of Elements by Kyrja, I immediately decided to buy it.
After finding Wicca, I struggled to find ways to celebrate the Sabbats. Even though I grew up in a Christian household, holidays were not big events.

I want to share with you my top five ideas for celebrating Litha.
