After Beltane

Our Beltane ritual last night was very nice, but abbreviated. We usually start circle around 70m or 8pm. But when Cary went to the Whole Foods Market to buy food for the evening, it took her a long time to get out of the check-out line. Apparently, Sunday night is when all of the health-food junkies in Houston do their grocery shopping. I'm not sure why that would be, but... *shrugs*

She bought about 3 lbs. of cheese, two bags of chocolate chips, some fresh fruit, and dried fruit. She asked me to buy evaporated milk because she wasn't sure if Whole Foods would sell it--which I thought was hilarious.

We wound up doing our fondue before the ritual instead of after it, so we wouldn't hae the food sitting out, etc.

It was good food! I had crystalized ginger for the first time, and the stuff is delicious! Unfortunately, the cheese didn't melt all the way--or at least, didn't stay gooey; it got stringy, instead. I think we needed to add more cornstarch. Still, a delicious feast. We jumped over the cauldron, sang Beltane songs--one from Camelot--and "Mummers' Dance" by Loreena McKennit. I've decided I'll sing "A Rosebud in June" by Steeleye Span for Midsummer.

It was almost midnight by the time we finished.

Oooh! I forgot that I bought buttermilk biscuits at the grocery store, yesterday! *goes off to nab one*

Other happy news--I found a translation for the first verse of "Ubi Catirat." Hurray!
