It snowed all weekend. And not lightly; It's still snowing, they forecast snow until tomorrow after-noon and there's around 20 cm that felt so far, around 15 other cm to come!
Maybe you wouldn't say it looks like spring's coming. But I do. In Québec, we have that last winter storm. That one where the thick, heavy snow stick to branches. And it's what's happening right now, so yay!
|oh my.. look at those chubby arms!|
Ostara is the name some pagans uses for Spring equinox. I love to use it, as I love using fancy names...ahah, not really. It separates the equinox celebration from Easter. And I love the Sabbath of Ostara. You can read my post from last year about what it means to me.
And now, Mariann is old enough for an egg hunt! I'm thrilled! ahah. It won't be anything overwhelming... Not many eggs (as I try having them all felted by me). With little plaything and piece of chocolate she will most definitely enjoy. I have a daffodil fairy done in the same fashion as the Snow Drop fairy. I will make some chicks with plushy yellow fabric, pompom bunnies, lambs, finger puppets, those kind of things. She will also have a felted horse, should I find my pattern, and maybe a plush hen, if I find the right fabric in my stash. It will be our main activity, along with some colourful baking, for the day. I don't like planning a busy day on a Sabbath day.
We won't decorate real eggs, but I'll draw huge ones in a paper for Mariann to paint over, and we'll proudly hang it somewhere. I might even do a banner like the one we did for Valentine's day, with colourful eggs, flowers and butterfly.
As for meal, we'll have an omelette. Mariann loves cracking eggs! With lots of leafy greens to accompagne it. I think I'll try blowing one or two and decorate it for myself when my daugther will be in bed. It's kind of selfish but I haven't done that in ages! I'll just let her play (break...) it in the morning...ahah!
Do you do something to highlight the Spring equinox at home?
