November & December 2021

I’ll write this blog update starting with December.  Philip and I got married.  A beautiful sweet little ceremony, held at Trowbridge registry office, accompanied with only our two witnesses, on Winter Solstice, 21st December 2021.  Winter Solstice being an important date in our earthly diary, we don’t celebrate Christmas, we put all our efforts into the Winter Solstice.  Anyway, we then went to Glastonbury and spent a few hours celebrating at George & Pilgrim a 15th century pub.  The staff there, spoilt us rotten with a banquet of food, laid out on a beautifully dressed table.  We felt so special, the day went far too quickly and was wonderfully romantic.  We’re both still enjoying our little flashbacks of such a magical day.

Our home was moored in the middle of nowhere for 2 weeks and we honeymooned in deeply, with Mother Nature, not seeing another human soul.  We feel blessed.

Now too November.  We’ve been preparing ourselves for winter from way back in August.  Winter is a time to slow down, rest from the hard work of summer and autumn.  The season shows us that we need to hunker down in the warmth, sleep a little longer and maybe tidy up some small jobs that get put to one-side, during the busy months of light.  JātaDreads was busy in November tidying up locks, had one fresh head.

Back to December.  Only a few dread-heads because of marriage plans and honeymoon.  Also school wrapped up for December giving me time to chill out with my husband.

However you spent the winter festivities, I trust the season brought you stillness and peace.  Blessings to all for nature’s new earth cycle and see you soon xxx Mrs Anna-Marie Semturis-Anderson.
