DIY Summer Rose Water and Aloe Hydrating Lotion

I made lotion. Well first, I made rose water, then I made lotion with it.Let me back up a little further.I’m spending a lot of time outside doing yard work and landscaping. My fair freckled Irish skin is taking a beating even with sunscreen.Yesterday morning we were outside again working on ‘the next step’ *because the best way to accomplish BIG projects is one step at a time.* Of course my busy-busy mind decided that while I was pulling weeds, sifting compost and filling a new flower bed, I should also be making rose water with the roses that have...

Moon Magic, Inspirations, and Black Salt

I have a confession. I've never been very good at keeping track of the moon cycles. *I know, Bad Witch* It's one of the things that's encouraged if you're trying to live a magical life. There's so much energy attached to the phases of the moon. It can get pretty complicated depending on what astrological sign the moon happens to be sitting in; each sign influences the moons energy in its own way. The idea is to work your intentions and magic in line with the energy of the moon.  New moons are for new beginnings. Setting Intentions and beginning...

However our theme for this month is Gifts - as in what gifts do we...

Quinoa *That's pronounced Keen-wah* Recipe

A few years ago, my oldest daughter and her step mom decided to go vegan. She was 16 and perfectly capable of making her own decision. My only concern was that she got enough iron and protein, because she was prone to anemia and she was working out al lot, P90-X and all that jazz. So to appease me, she did a thorough search of what foods would give her enough protein to replace meat and began incorporating them into her diet - with the help of her step mom.  *for the record, I loved her step-mom and was really...

AnnaPurna DIY Goddess Lessons recipe

Holy Goddess Of Grains! Annapurna inspires Granola

  Sometimes the Goddesses are all in your ear shouting, "Sugar, you need to hear this!" but sometimes they're quieter and the messages are subtle; less of an epiphany more of a gradual understanding. Sometimes its just the little synchronocities that let you know She is here for you, subtly influencing and blessing you in her own way. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So, while I've been so absorbed in the end of Summer busy-ness and developing a routine for homeschool, (I can't believe August is almost over!) I was thinking maybe I was not giving Annapurna enough time. I did what I normally do....
