Rabbit, Rabbit!

Oh wait, that’s not a rabbit.

german-rabbitThis is a rabbit! Whooo-eeee, look at that Hoss.

Ha! This time I remembered. Its Beltane (May Day) so get out there and enjoy some sunshine and fresh air, if you have any. Its raining here so dancing around the bonfire nekkid will have to wait.  Traditionally, this is the time to light two fires and drive your herds between the two for purfication and protection. However, not having much of a herd, unless you count cats as a herd, I tend to celebrate Beltane in the Germanic way, with a Maypole, fertility rituals, and a long walk in the forest.

Sadly, I have no Maypole, do not wish to be fertile, except in a monetary sense, and walking in my yard in the rain will have to suffice for a walk in the forest. I do have to make a casserole today so lighting the oven will have to substitute for a bonfire.

Hope you have a prosperous month and a beautiful day!

    We were going to have a scout bonfire tonight but high winds and threats of thunderstorms caused it to be canceled.

    I’ll have to settle for images of you running around nekkid in front of a fire instead. Not an altogether unpleasant idea.

    I’ll have to settle for celebrating a few weekends ahead from now. The next two are completely booked! Hope you enjoy your back yard! 🙂

    Maybe you should just blog naked with the “rabbit” on your shoulder?

    Sorry Jammie J, but if you’re naked with a “rabbit”, you don’t put it on your shoulder. 😉

    Hope you have a prosperous month, too, Inanna!

    No fires here either. The last thing I need is fertility : )
