For Mabon 2010, I decided that I wanted to do three things. Two of these were accomplished. One was to have a picnic lunch in the park. I was able to do this at Dan Daniels park. I had a vegetable plate from Piggly Wiggly with a piece of corn bread. My ‘ale’ was Coca Cola. I went to the park and found a nice table up a hill from a shelter. There were three tables under the trees. I had my lunch in the lovely woods. After I ate, I took several pictures of my surroundings and picked up several leaves and one rock to commemorate my day.
The second thing I planned to do was get some corn husks to make a corn dolly. Unfortunately when I went to PW, they only had corn prepackaged. I wasn’t able to get the husks.
The third thing I wanted to do was have hash brown casserole as my Mabon feast. This was accomplished after getting a couple of ingredients at PW. I made my casserole and enjoyed it for my harvest feast.
All in all it was a good day. It would have be perfect if not for the fact that I was sick. I am not sure what was wrong with me, but I’ve been feeling horrible all day. I had to rush home after my park experience because I felt so bad. I didn’t leave the house after that.
I didn’t do a formal circle for the day, but I did light a candle and some incense on my Altar for the occasion and gave thanks to Anubis and Hecate for the day. Speaking of Anubis, I also printed out two pictures of Him to post over the doors of my house as a house protection. I put one over the front door, and the other ON the back door. There isn’t any room above the back door.
As I pasted the final one on the back door, I said, “At this place, in this hour, This house is protected, by Anubis’ power.”
It was a good Mabon.
