Welcome to In the know Once a month on the 25th I ask question about something. This month question What is Mabon or Fall like in your area?
I don’t know why I consider the first of September actual the beginning of Mabon season.
Our weather in North Idaho starts to cool down and usually more of breeze picks up. I notice at end of August a few trees start to turn color.
Each day more and more are changing colors.
I notice two of our trees in back are pretty well naked of leaves.
I thought last fall our larch trees start to change there needles to a beautiful gold as I look out towards the mountain in our back or front yard there no goldish glow coming off the mountain side yet.
I planted sunflower in front by Bart window and they form heads but no seeds. Maybe next time around
Honest time…I let things go in the hot summer months My flower bed real look like crap.
During the heat I real neglected my flowerbeds now there full of weeds.
I was going to buy more bulbs but I decided I needed to take care of the ones I got. So far I clean out my patriotic flowerbed.
I did buy some white daffodils.
When it comes to fall I start think more in line of making soups or stews. Actual using the oven a little more
Like spring time it actual I start to do some projects. Because with out the heat.
I then become more chipper and like doing projects around the place.
I went thought our bedroom closet and got rid of some stuff some went to the thrift store, other went in trash and others went in the garbage can.
It looks a lot better but I need to do more
I wonder what my ancestors of the pass did this time of year. I recall my parents had a garden and my mom canned and froze things for the freezer.
I heard stories of my Grandma Olive (My mom’s mom) who had a little farmer cart and she sold produce from her garden in Nebraska they lived there from about 1923 until 1937.
The money she earn from that she bought the school clothes for her children.
I wish I could see a picture of it.
Most of my pass ancestors were blue color worker and farmers who weren’t afraid to get there hands dirty.
I guess the only one thing I would like to meet more people who’s faith is more Earthy Base ones.
The closes thing to that is at the gardenia center which to me more Interfaith.
A least they excepted other spiritual path then just one way
One last thing when I was young I did not like the wind. But now I do it brings change

Now next month “ In the know question” will be Which holiday don’t you like and if you could change it how would you do it
