Lammas is coming soon and approching rather quikly im excited and getting ready as quikly as possible!! Ahhhh
What is Lammas you may ask...
-July 31st - August 1st Lughnasadh / Lammas
At Lammas, sometimes called Lughnasadh, it's time to celebrate the first harvest of the year, and recognize that the hot summer days will soon come to an end. The plants of spring wither and drop seeds to ensure future crops. Grains are ready to be harvested and the fruits are ripe for picking. We can give thanks for the food on our tables.
Lughnasadh means the funeral games of Lugh (pronounced Loo), referring to Lugh, the sun god. However, the funeral is not his own, but the funeral games he hosts in honor of his foster-mother Tailte. For that reason, the traditional Tailtean craft fairs and Tailtean marriages (which last for a year and a day) are also celebrated at this time.
As autumn begins, the Celtic Sun God enters his old age, but is not yet dead. The God symbolically loses some of his strength as the Sun rises farther in the South each day and the nights grow longer.
The Christian religion adopted this theme and called it 'Lammas ', meaning 'loaf-mass ', a time when newly baked loaves of bread are placed on the altar. An alternative date around August 5 (Old Lammas), when the sun reaches 15 degrees Leo, is sometimes employed by Covens

lol as foolish as this sounds my two guinea pigs had a wedding lol. Now i know what your thinking "Seriously a wedding for two rodents? She has to be kidding!"
Well im not and theres a good reason for that. When we first got Willow we had planned to have them mate and my little sister Bryana (10-years-old) had ask if they were to have babies didnt they have to be married first? So a few months after willow was well enough we through a small cerimony for the two critters! It was actually very cute. And it made my little sister happy as well XD
on other news....
We have recently recieved a new little kitty she is 9 days old and as cute as can be! A friend of a friend had found the little kitten in thier driveway with the after birth and umbilical cord still attached they though she was dead and left it there and in the morning the little thing had moved three feet so they brought it in cleaned her up and gave me a call. Ever sence that day we have had her and gave her the name Miracle because she truely is a little miracle.
Also my dear friend Conner has let me take a few photos of him which i think turned out pretty well. Im still practicing and trying to get the hang of all the photography stuff my mother is helping me though. I did take my first group photos. It was a rather large family photo group and it was mega fun and the children were OMG cute!!!!
