Happy Solstice!

Upon a winter's day, how beautiful the shadows are! - Charles Dickens

















It's almost time for our annual solstice party wherein we celebrate the return of light! We made lots of paper lanterns for a moonlight walk with the Lilliputians and some peppermint bark for the Brobdingnagians!






















































We also made these little pouches of seed to sprinkle outside for the woodland creatures.


















On Sunday there will be a crock of vegetarian chili with all the fixins, a warm fire, and a houseful of cherished people scattered around this tree.






















Speaking of cherished people, have a listen to an excerpt from Karen Maezen Miller's new book. I just adore her...her holey socks...her nubby sweater...her lovely voice...her wit & wisdom!

I love your lanterns! Sounds like the makings for a beautiful party!

Our family celebrates solstice by making a tiny fire in the woods. (parents are warm, kids get to play with fire!)
