I was suffering from a migraine yesterday, but I didn't let that keep me from stopping at the roadside garden market on my way home for some gourds, tiny pumpkins and a mum for my home.
For the first day of October, I got my kitchen table ready for the season.
I was going to decorate my altar last night, but my head had other thoughts and I went to bed shortly after snapping those photos.
So today's activity was getting my altar ready for Samhain. I switched out my altar cloth from tan and brown harvest flowers to a blue, grey and gold one with pumpkins. I also changed out my cauldron - the small blue ceramic one I normally use is in the kitchen and has been replaced with a newly consecrated cast iron one. I also hung a shelf on the wall above the altar table to use for my god and goddess representations, right now a shell and a cow horn. I'm hoping to craft a goddess figure of Cerridwyn before the season is out.
I have some great events that I'll be going to this weekend that are radically different from each other. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't rain!
