Autumnal Equinox

We have decided to try and celebrate some of the seasonal festivals as incorporated by the Waldorf method. I hadn't had a chance to post about our little Fall Equinox evening. We celebrated with a meal and bonfire.

We made Irish soda bread for the first time using a recipe from the wonderful blog - Weave a Thousand Flavors - Weave a Thousand Flavors - Irish Soda Bread . It was wonderful and the boys had a great time measuring out the ingredients and baking it. We will definitely make this bread again. It is a dense, heavier texture. My Grandmother never made this before, even with our Irish immigrant heritage.We roasted a chicken instead of the traditional duck, then enjoyed the bonfire.

Handwork of a different sort

We have been making our way through Oak Meadow and loving it. We have added in handwork of a different sort- do it yourself home improvement. Finishing the interior of our new backroom provided great opportunities.

Practicing with the drill.

You know... this might not be such a good idea after all...I can actually see those wheels turning.
