Happy almost Imbolc Brothers and Sisters! What is on your agenda for the holiday? We are going to bless seeds and candles for the year. It is also a great time to clean the winter dust off of the altar, take an inventory of your herbs, candles, and incenses and make a list of what you need to buy from your local stores. I always try to buy local although during the winter it is nice to have a package delivered to your door instead of getting out in the snow!!! Seeds starter kits are starting to show up at the stores too. We had to go to get a new washer and dryer this weekend at the store this weekend. We picked up some cucumber, cherry tomato, peony, and lavendar seeds to start in the next few weeks. My mother-in-law got us a Chia herb garden for Yule. I think we are going to start the seeds for that on Imbolc. What are your plans for the Holiday?
Here's the latest article from the Wicca site at BellaOnline.com.

Don't forget the book club has started!!! We are reading Buckland's Book of Witchcraft. There was a good response of people interested but only 1 person has responded to the questions I posted. If you are interested in discussin the book or any other questions you may have, please visit the forums!
