lammas from midnight fever

Oatmeal Cookies

My card for the day for yesterday was Three of Pentacles from the Tarot of Prague. 

                             

The book alongside the deck is damaged by water from a window that I left open. It is sad to open the book and see that, but well, I can still read it. The card stands for accomplishments and teamwork. Yesterday I baked oatmeal cookies with my husband. The cookies were for a Lammas ritual. Some were burned, because I turned on the microwave instead of the oven.




The ones baked in the oven turned out quite well.

Lammas

The card I picked today as card of the day is Six of Pentacles from the Tarot of Prague. 

                        

This card is about sharing. The card pictures a woman who gives bread to beggars. Bread is literary an important theme for me at the moment. I have been very busy the last few days with writing a ritual for the festival of Lammas with a spread, for on my website. In this festival bread is important. Oatmeal and wheat and barley are harvested right now. Today I have uploaded it

I gave my daughter oatmeal cookies to share today, the ones that I baked yesterday, for her holiday camp in the woods where she goes to each day this week. I felt like a ‘real good’ mother, giving healthy, self-made cookies.
