Plans: day off, tree planting
Fruchtbarkeit, we pray to Fro/Freyr, and to Sibba/Sif, lighting green candles (for fertility):
Fro/Freyr, you are the god of “Ar”, the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the lusty enlarger of life. When the day to day wears us down, remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!
Sibba/Sif: Let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look
beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all
bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let us see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let us see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba/Sif, that we may do our work in the world. HAIL SIBBA/SIF!!

Off to Lowe’s http://www.lowes.com/ for a pick-ax and garden hose
My Thauling, along with his son. came over to help plant
trees around the Vé. Eight trees were
planted around the circumference. BEAUTIFUL! Audie took some great pictures.
We fed the help, too. I made sure that everything was done as well as I think
they could be. Along with planting the Dwarf Alberta Spruce, I made sure the 10” pot got a 20” hole to the top of the pot, along with root stimulator and evergreen fertilizer. I’ve done all I know to do. I have asked the Vanic gods for their blessing!
Okay, NOW I’m feeling today’s labor…ouuuuuuuuuuuuch…

DC v Sporting Kansas City (end of regular season)
DC 0:1 SKC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sporting Kansas city has gone from last to 1st place in the Eastern Division. KC Royals can’t do it. KC Chiefs can’t do it. It takes a SOCCER team to win 1st place for Kansas City. Will they get the respect they deserve?

PM Prayer: All you gods and goddesses bless and keep your Holy Folk. From the cold shadows of the glaciers to the colder shadows of space, always, we have been your people. Guide and guard your North folk as you did in ages past. Wodan/Odin, give wisdom and craft to wits shaped by ice and fire that our foes be foxed. Donar/Thor, give us strength and the will to use it. Fro/Freyr and Froja/Freyja, give full wombs so that bodies will be found for the souls of heroes. Let your Northern Folk grow in number and in power, so that our kind may live, love, survive and thrive, not just today, not for a
millennium, but for ever and ever!
