Well, couldn't those very well be prestidigitation
, plant growth
, and control weather
? Though to be fair, only that last one is on the cleric spell list.
In all seriousness though, the implication was that because this is meant to be a fic about Twilight and co. operating in a world that subscribes to Pathfinder rules - and has a great deal of exposition regarding their interaction with and reaction to those rules - suddenly stepping outside them, at least in terms of something so specific as asking what particular spell is being used in a given scene, seems a tad disingenuous.
Or in other words, when the premise is "it's all about Pathfinder/Ponyfinder," having the spell be something original seems like a fake-out.
All of that said, the spells in the Core Rules are all notably focused on combat to the exclusion of quite a few other things. To address that shortcoming, there's a great feat (Hedge Magic) in The Practical Enchanter
(itself free) that, when you take it, adds a large number of low-level spells to your spell list that deal with more everyday uses for magic. Nothing like controlling the weather for a season, of course (these only go up to 2nd-level), but still some good stuff.
The spells themselves aren't covered in the book. Rather, they're presented in a seven-part article titled Hedge Magic Heroes
on the co-author's blog (this link is to part I).
