Scenery Tumblr Themes

This is my sister blog. Suited for all the nifty pagan oriented things I find.
I'm a practicing eclectic pagan with very strong Nordic principles.

Feel free to message me about anything. I'll do my best if anyone has questions relating to paganism.

Summer Goddess Sun Tea with Chamomile Syrup 
Summer Goddess Sun Tea

Equal parts dried rose and hibiscus flowers, blended1-3 teaspoons of flowers per 8 oz of water

Brew sun tea by leaving a jar of water and flower petals in a sunny window for an hour or two. The hibiscus imparts its flavor quickly, so the tea doesn’t take long to brew. A caveat: there’s some risk of bacteria growth when making sun tea. If you think you’ll leave your tea out for more than a couple of hours, consider brewing it overnight in the refrigerator instead, or making it the old-fashioned way with boiling water. If you use boiling water, pour it over dried flowers, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes before straining.
Brown Sugar Chamomile Syrup

1 cup organic brown sugar1 cup water 1/2 cup dried chamomile flowers

In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add chamomile flowers and cover with a lid. Jessa likes to add one cup of flowers for a strong chamomile flavor. If you prefer a more subtle flavor, add just a half cup of flowers. Allow to cool and then strain into a clean container and enjoy. Syrup can be refrigerated for up to one month.

"Fortunate is he who is favored in his lifetime  With praise and words of wisdom:  Evil counsel is often given  By those of evil heart,
Blessed is he who in his own lifetime  Is awarded praise and wit,  For ill counsel is often given  By mortal men to each other”
Odin at the Havamal.

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]
