Imbolg Blessings and a Groundhog!

I woke up early this morning to watch my favorite groundhog, Punxatawney Phil, on the news!! Where in front of thousands of extremely excited fans, Phil was brought out from his burrow by his "The Inner Circle" members to address everyone, including reporters from various National news stations, in order to give us all his "live" winter prediction broadcast for 2013. Phil's verdict?  Yay!!! "An early spring for you and me!" I said it before and I'll say it again, "Gotta LOVE that Phil!"

Watch Phil's live prediction here ...

 
 
 Groundhog Day is so poplular here in PA, that I would be terribly remiss for not mentioning two of our more local weather predicting prognosticating groundhogs, "Shoey Louie" (from Shoemakersville, PA) and "Pagoda Patty" (who makes her live appearance from The Reading Pagoda in downtown Reading, PA). 
 
 
 
So what are my plans for today, my friends? Well, I am going to start by doing my usual house cleaning while watching a marathon on TV of the movie "Groundhog Day," then I plan on traditionally cleansing and blessing my home, and then finally in the early evening I am going to celebrate Imbolg solitary style.  Nothing too exciting, but, I, just like my cats, am a creature of habit and I do so enjoy my routines as this is how I typically spend this sabbat (along with Groundhog Day, of course).
 
So as we all await "an early spring" this year, let the mid-season of Winter commence with whatever way in which you perosnally choose to celebrate it!
 
 
WISHING ALL THE BLESSINGS OF IMBLOG AND ALL THE BEST FOR GROUNDHOG DAY!!!

  2. I like the routines too, it is comforting to do certain things each year. Enjoy the day, the Light and thoughts of an early Spring.
