Blog Update, Content, and Future Surprise

Lit. Update – Mystery and Poetry

Personal Post: “Spring Ahead”


  Recently, we had the first rainfall of the year. It was a welcomed blessing because it's been pretty dry since the snow stopped. Sadly, except for a few quick errands, I've been too busy struggling getting things done to get outside very much. Once I get rid of some more items on my to-do... Continue Reading →

During the first week of October, we have the feast of Tabernacle ‘s. Then there is Samhain, and the very next day after there is All Saints Day.

Personal Post – “A Different Kind”


  If people were to get a peek into my activities this year, they probably wouldn't think I was celebrating at all. While the Grianstad festival does include the day most people now call Halloween, we've never observed that day. Our festival is about giving thanks, helping others, and preparing for the winter - not... Continue Reading →
