Plans: Kansas State Fair
AM Prayer: Saturday, Day of Fertility/Tag der Fruchtbarkeit, normally attributed to the (rather obscure) fertility goddess, Saeter (more correctly Saturn), we pray to Sibba/Sif and to Fro/Freyr, lighting green candles
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
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!!
Born of fire, born of ice
Life is lived at such a price

Audie was so ready to go to the fair this morning. She was in such a good mood and as goofy/happy as could be. We loaded up and headed out about mid-morning. I took $110 and when it was gone we were done. It was great weather for the Fair. We saw many animal exhibits and partook of fair food. Audie got a really nice blouse, a State fair t-shirt and some jewelry. I got a State fair t-shirt and had my fill of food: beer, wings, jerky sausage, roasted corn. On the way back we tried to stop at the Dutch Mill Bakery
http://www.hutchmarketplace.com/marketplace/businesses/dutch-mill-bakery/ in Yoder http://www.yoderkansas.com/ but they were already closed. So, we backtracked a bit and stopped at an Amish bake sale. We got some apple butter, sand plum jelly and spicy bred-n-butter pickles. There was plenty of good things and they were wonderful people; complete with plain clothes and bonnets.
$110.50 spent; we’re done!
Home and tired but it certainly has been a good/joyous day!

PM Prayer: Ostara/Idun:
Ostara/Idun, keeper of the golden apples of youth, keep us young inside. When we are starving for laughter, hungry for the lightness that comes with having few years on our shoulders, slip us one of those gleaming fruits that we may see the world through youthful eyes. Let springtime be in our steps, love in our hearts and a song on our lips. Change us to the core! Fill us with optimism and dreams for the future. HAIL
