Tonight is mothers night, this night we celebrate the ancestral mothers because lets face it without them our ancestral fathers wouldn’t have found their pants 😉

celebrating the ancestral mothers is different for each familie, so I suggest looking up your familie history or tree to see who your Desir are. I haven’t gotten very far up my tree so that is a project I really need to work on.

While the cakes were cooling we went for a walk in the woods and I saw a woodpecker for the very first time in my life. I tried to take a picture but its so blurry you cant see him on it, I was expecting a bigger bird you know 🙂

In light of recent events I will keep the mothers of Berlin in my prayers to Frigg tonight, I will ask Eir to stand by those fighting for their lives and ask Forsetti for swift judgement over the guilty party.
