Spell-A-Day: Here Comes the Sun Spell

I'm one of the contributers for the Llewellyn's 2012 Witches' Spell-A-Day Almanac, myself and many others joined forces to provide 365 spells for this great almanac, one for every day of the year.  Today's spell is one of mine, I wanted to share the link with you which you'll find below.  I was totally inspired to write todays spell for a Lovely Sunday in March that also happens to be Daylight Savings Time (set your clocks if you haven't already!)  I took my inspiration from the sun-tea that we used to make when I was a kid, but I gave this spell an herbal tea twist, and added magic as well as deliciousness to make this a Sunday spell to remember.  If today isn't sunny where you are, you can choose to do it any Sunday you wish.  I plan to use this delicious magical tea plenty of times on warm spring days and this summer!

One more inspiration for this spell?  The sweet and quirky HBO series based on the books of Alexander McCall Smith, " No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency." about Precious Ramotswe, who runs a detective agency in Botswana.  She tells her clients “There is no problem so great it cannot be solved by a cup of bush tea.” as they sit on her porch and tell her about their case.  A delightful show and a delightful sentiment.  I discovered bush tea, (aka rooibos tea) because of the show, it's now one of my favorites.  It has a warmth to it's flavor even when iced and a smooth quality that nurtures your soul.
“There is no problem so great it cannot be solved by a cup of bush tea.”

  1. I always look forward to warm sunny weather for tea making. The kiddos love it, and making it together always adds that special bonus. My little one even gets in on the fun, and always wants to be the one who says the blessing. The one you shared can be done even on a not so hot/sunny day. As long as a few rays of sun peaks through, we could make it work. Thank you for the lovely share.

  2. Glad you liked it, This would have worked here yesterday, I think it was warm enough, but not today, it's raining! Too bad. :o(
