Spring Equinox

 I love Equinox. Or as other call it  Ostara. We had a great time celebrating this turn of the wheel of the year. I used my green table cloth, wine glasses with green juice in them, tulips in a vase and Easter eggs with a treat inside.

A friends came over with her children so we had a five year old, seven year old and a ten year old. She also brought her CSA pork roast. Oh my that was a wonderful piece of pig. So tender and delicious! I roasted beets, sweet potatoes, and blue new potatoes. A big green spinach salad and green string beans rounded out the dinner.The grains were not even missed by any of us!

Before dinner began we said what we were  grateful for, go around the table and each share a gratitude.  Then I instructed everyone to hold their candy filled Easter egg and imagine imbibing it with all that will be new for you in the next few months. This is a great mediation. We quietly sat and thought about how our lives are evolving and what was next for us. The kids said they made wishes, like when you blow out birthday candles.

And of course we dyed Easter eggs. We used these wonderful natural egg dyes. The dyes were so vibrant! They used, cabbage, radish, and onion to make the dyes. None of that artificial crap.Look how great they look! No need for the other stuff!
We also created little planters with egg shells. We planted some herbs and flowers. They will stay inside until the weather is better and they get buried directly into the soil. Fun huh?
