May Day. Beltane. My celebration plan was for a quiet day to ourselves, starting with a yummy champagne brunch. As the rain began in the afternoon and I had the afternoon to myself, I suddenly realized circumstances were what I had been asking for and not expecting. It was time to upgrade my laptop OS. What better way to celebrate nature than playing with electronic circuits. And during Mercury retrograde. Talk about non-traditional Beltane. Fortunately, all worked out: I caught up on guilty pleasure television, started knitting a new shawl for me, and the upgrade went without a hitch.
