Busy, busy, busy

And things are only getting busier as the fall wraps her shawl around New England.

Soon I’ll be off to the OBOD East Coast Gathering. I’m looking forward to spending a weekend with such an awesome bunch of druids! Last year was a blast and I can’t imagine what’s in store for us this time.

And, sadly, my camera decided to up and die while I was on a hike a couple of weeks ago. It’s leaving large purple smudges over everything—with no evidence of anything on the lens—which means I don’t have my usual visual assortment of filler for the blog. But, among the works in progress are a number of wands, a macerating pig skull, a rabbit skin divination cloth, and the completion of my (patent-pending!) Druid Bugout Bag. Many goodies, but no pics. Very sad indeed.

Lastly, the garden is giving up her final fruits. We haven’t had time to do a fall crop this year, but hopefully we can get this season’s final hardscape tasks firmed up before the community work weekend. Then, it’ll be time for planning, and drooling over the seed catalogues with cups of hot chai. There’s one thing I know for certain: fewer tomatoes!

Happy Autumn and Alban Elfed!
