May Day Views

We're dancing, we're dancing around the Maypole high,
In colors of the rainbow our ribbons do fly,
Dear children take a ribbon please,
Today May flowers all are we,
Around, around, around,
A garland do we weave.

~Enki Festival Songs

May Pole


The Battle

After rain all night and part of the morning, the clouds broke and we had abundant, strong sunshine for our May Day festivities.  Everything was in a bit of disarray--muddy footprints on the floor, a pail of water poured on the front porch, and flower bits scattered around--but, we had a lovely time with our dear friends.  I really appreciate them helping us to celebrate at various points through the year and I hope our traditions only grow better with time.  Our pictures of us going around the pole didn't come out, but you can see here that the armies for the Queens of Winter and Summer did battle and Summer came out on top.

Today begins our long-awaited bathroom remodel and screen-free week.  We're going to the park while they tackle taking out the tub, and may have to leave again after lunch.  There are numerous things up in the air, for sure.  I'll be back tomorrow for Crafting On and then spend the rest of the week enjoying whatever is before (or trying!).

I agree. I wish we had a group around here. Maybe we are making our own? ;-) The bathroom is moving along!

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
