Imbolc was lovely and peaceful. The girls made beeswax candles to honor and mark the growing light each day. They decorated the candles with more beeswax that was all colors of loveliness. Sophia called it a rainbow snow for her candle.

We are so close to Spring now. Baby chicks will be arriving next week. Our thoughts are turned to seeds and planting and the good brown earth and the hope of many lambs. Sophia asks nearly every day if it is Spring yet.

It is not Spring yet, but soon it will be. Soon.
