Imbolc Celebrations
I have a feeling that Imbolc will become a big Sabbat for me.  I've recently discovered Brighid as one of my patron goddesses.  This is due to the fact that she is multifaceted, and the number 19 is important to her story.  19 has been a recurring number in my life so it just made sense.

So!  Imbolc practices!  I made butter this morning.  Yes.  Made it.  All you need is some heavy whipping cream and a mason jar big enough to hold it with a little room at the top.  Then you shake the jar for about 30 minutes or until the cream solidifies.  You will have some fluid left over.  But that's buttermilk!  You can use it in some other recipe.  I added salt to my butter.  You can also add herbs, honey or whatever you want to it.  It's really easy and tasty too!  We're a margarine household here, so it's been awhile since I've had real butter.

To go with the butter, I am making braided bread.  I should probably go braid it now actually.  Ah well.  We shall be having that with our dinner.

Later on my sister will be helping me clean my room.  Well... she'll be organizing and I'll be doing the cleaning.  I mean a deep, carpet-shampooing type clean.  Should be fun! *note sarcasm*  


  1. The bread was tasty! I helped with the braiding. ^^ *feels proud* I also think your room looks a tad nicer now that it's more organized! Hopefully it'll be better functioning for you. All that's left is for you to vacuum, shampoo the carpet, and do your laundry. :P

  2. Imbolc is one of my favorite Sabbats as well! :) I like to make Irish Soda Bread, butter, and some sort of fish for dinner. It's such a beautiful holiday full of light and promise.
