Fairy Day - Livin' the Good Life
Apr. 2nd, 2010
02:40 pm - Fairy Day
The morning is cool and crisp as I sit patiently waiting for the children to arrive. I've done all the preparations. I've made and set out the props. I've planned the simple table setting. I've ironed the pretty new lavender tablecloth that Maya gave me. I've mixed and rolled the yummy flax, honey, cacao, and almond butter balls. I've brewed the heavenly rose petal tea. The trusty glue gun and newspapers are in place for our craft project. The backyard is well-watered and ready to be beautified for its fairy inhabitants. The warming fire is lit in the woodstove as I sit expectantly in the living room, the beeswax story candle beside me, waiting to do its job. The songs and circle games have been learned. The fairy story has been memorized. My homemade flower garland is resting on my head as I wait quietly for the fun to begin. Oh, joy
I'm ready. Where are those delightful children?
Working on the fairy garden planting a fairy favorite: chia seeds! Won't those fairies be surprised!
Hey, Darlene! Look what we made: A fairy sandbox and slide!
The wonder of it all!
After the children went home, I went out in the backyard to inspect the fruits of their labors. I was delighted to find a fairy slide that twirled round into a fairy sandbox!
The fairy garden was planted with chia and decorated with flowers. Oh, won't those fairies love that??
It looks like the fairies were expecting company. They even have a juicy berry for dessert!
I found the hidden bedroom:
And the pinecone forest path:
One ticket to fairyland (required to get in) and wheatgrass sprouting in an Easter basket (Oops, it's a little too late for Easter this year. Next year I'll start earlier!)
I wish I had taken a picture of the marvelous "fairy food" that everyone brought for lunch. It was a sumptuous meal and so beautiful all spread out and arranged on my lilac-colored tablecloth with my simple, white tableware. We had tiny "fairy pancakes", crackers with cream cheese, cucumber and a flower-shaped carrot slice on top, fairy-ring-shaped, homemade bread with strawberry cream cheese spread, some kind of a mushroom treat that I didn't get a chance to try, my almond-flax seed balls, and of course, yummy rose-petal iced-tea.
The children all left with their craft project in hand: a fairy table to start their own fairyland at home. They seemed anxious to get home and get started! And I'm ready for a nap!
