The Spiral of Time.

Hello Novemember : www.theMagicOnions.com

  Welcome to a new month. November! A month of autumn and changes and the calm before the storm. I’m manifesting the Spiral this month.     I’m working on accepting the turnings and changes of life as it evolves. I won’t fight it. I will breath it in. I won’t grieve over another year […]

I had a bunch of Dahlias in the Sunny House last week. Oh my… they kept getting more impossibly beautiful as the days went by.  Of course, I grabbed my camera and they became a muse as I played with my new lens… so pretty!   (And, I love my lens!) Look at the color of […]

Summer Slowdown

Beautiful summer, filled with golden sunshine. Our day’s are warm and slow and we have given in to delicious lethargy… and surrendered to watermelon, cold from the fridge.

    I want to begin August by sharing some beautiful blogs I think you’ll love. A Soulful Life – dreamer, poet, Mama, artist, maker of happy messes, fan of unmade beds. Whole Family Rhythms – I’ve been hot and it’s wonderfully refreshing to see winter photos. I particularly love Meagan’s ‘in the kitchen’ posts. […]

Welcome, July, the month of being with my children all-day-long and hearing their laughter, and mine, filling the house. Welcome, July, the month of fairy gardens, bees […]

The Magic of Boredom.

The Magic Of Being Bored : The Magic Onions : www.theMagicOnions.com

‘Mom, I’m bored’. ‘Mom, there’s NOTHING to do’. ‘MOM, Teddy’s irritating me!’ ‘Mom, Kitty won’t play with me’. I’ve heard these sentences a hundred times this summer. The summer is long.     We dread these sentences. They make us feel bad, don’t they. They make us feel guilty, like we are not doing a […]
