    Yup I should not have called it a solstice, what I should have said was festival. Imbolc is a feast day celebrating the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring.

    The seasons each last about 3 months this varies a bit in real terms depending on your latitude. The solstices and equinox’ denote the middle of each season, the festivals the beginning/end of the seasons.

    Imbolc (winter/sping February 3 2015)
    Beltaine (spring/summer May 5 2015)
    Lughnasad (summer/autumn August 7 2015)
    Samhain (autumn/winter November 7 2015)

    When it comes to Summer some sources actually quote the 21 June as the beginning of summer (this is more of a convenience for modern living than anything) with midsummer a few days later, it does seem that way sometimes but it is technically wrong.

    5 more days until the Spring solstice woo hoo! role on Imbolc, and then another 3 months until Summer.

    Our cat too hunts mice whenever he wants now, we see him in our minds roaming the woods near our house, and he’s having a great time at it. She might not have been a mouser like our Sammy but I’m sure Gladys is having great fun.

    I should sign up to netflix instead of cable then, because the syfy channel in the UK keeps putting this crap on regularly _

    Caffeine and ginseng is an interesting mix, try some red ginseng extract in your coffee, the flavours compliment too.
