Witch’s Thanksgiving


At 5:51 AM yesterday, the sun crossed the celestial equator, creating equal periods of night day and marking the official beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere. The day is known as Alban Elfed, Autumn Equinox, Autumnal Equinox, Cornucopia, Feast of Avilon, Festival of Dionysus, Harvest Home, Harvest Tide, Mabon, Night of the Hunter, Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Witch’s Thanksgiving, and the first day of autumn. I like Witch’s Thanksgiving. And with this hay bale standing next to my house, it’s no surprise. Okay, is it just me or does this hay bale look malevolent? Possibly alive? A creepy, fuzzy monster? That’s going to come and GET ME?! 😮

Happy Fall!

    Congrats, Dru! :clap:

    Happy Fall, Suzanne! :cowsleep: :woof: :sheepjump:

    I don’t know. I think it’s kind of cute in a big, fat, malevolent kind of way. The old 2’X4′ bails were nicer.

  3. Susan says:

    Congratulations, Dru! :snoopy:

    If you aren’t here tomorrow we will know where to focus our rescue search! 😆

    Congrats Dru!
    Stay away from the hay bale, Suzanne.

    Congrats Dru!

    The bale would be quite spooky with a good dose of fog around it 😮

    You have a good dose of imagination which all good authors should have :catmeow:

    congrats Dru.

    The hay bale just says “home” to me.

    Congrats, Dru! I hope you enjoy the book.

    BTW, Suzanne, I meant to post that I got my copy of “A Hero’s Redemption” a couple of weeks ago. But I’ve had my dad visiting from Vancouver, BC and haven’t had a chance to read one or two chapters some evenings, when I haven’t been too exhausted to stay awake. LOL. Anyway, he left today, so I’m looking forward to finishing it. And I can’t wait for the next in the series. 🙂

    Happy Autumn, everyone. It’s glorious here!

    That IS an evil-looking hay bale! Steer clear of it!

    Congrats, Dru!!!

    Congrats Dru!! :shimmy: Maybe it’s just me, but that hay bale reminds me of the movie Arachnophobia. I couldn’t go into a barn for a long time after seeing that one. :chicken: Hope you’re not afraid of spiders Suzanne. :shocked: Hope everyone has a great day today.

    Congratulations Dru!

    As for the bale of hay? It reminds me of a snowball you’d see in one of the Scooby cartoons, the ones that roll all down the mountain picking things up along the way. Did you check the bale for any kids or animals? *G*

  11. Dru says:

    oh wow, I won! Thanks everyone.

    It looks like a wooly mammoth resting before the attack.

  12. Lexi Connor says:

    Of course, to a suspense mind it looks evil. 🙂
