Goddess Wednesday -- Celebrating the Sun

The little ones woke up to a bright and sunny table decorated by fairies that slide down the Sun's rays at sunrise this morning. The girls were delighted. The little gifts were left overs, if you will, from Christmas and the only reason that gifts were involved for this occasion. The flowers are wooden puzzles that the girls enjoyed taking apart and putting back together - and I think they look pretty. 

We enjoyed reading and singing John Denver's Sunshine on My Shoulders - a book I had from my publishing days. The illustrations in this book are beautiful and dreamy. As an added bonus a CD and score was included. It is sure to become a family favorite - and brings warm and fuzzy memories of my childhood. You can find out more about this book at this amazing site that I found today. I have no connections to this publisher - but I think you will agree they are pretty cool. 

We planned on baking a sun cake this morning but received word that the gas into the building of my condo would be shut off for the day. Ella opted to make one out of magic clay instead. It is drying in the sun waiting to be painted. I love celebrating such magical events with the girls - truly enchanting. We made fresh lemonade and enjoy doing yoga in my Mother's yard. (A post for tomorrow.)

Now I must get ready for my enchanting evening with my Goddess friends.
