Sunday and Monday:

     Sunday was the day I was going to go to the Renaissance Festival with my friend Christi. Well, we did go, but...the whole thing turned into such a fiasco it was downright funny. Because of course, after debating over the weather and deciding to go anyway, it had to start raining about the time we found a nice parking spot. We did get left in fairly dry peace for half an hour or so, and since it was wonderfully cool and I had an appetite, I finally screwed up the courage to try the spinach pie this year. Not bad! But from there on--what a mess! Since it had rained a good portion of Saturday already, everything was soft and muddy to start out with. Then when it started pouring in earnest, we had the choice of wading through mud or walking through puddles covered with floating wood-chips, of indeterminate depth. My cloak got sopping and dirty, my costume skirt full of mud on the bottom and heavy with rainwater--just a mess! So after spending some $17-20 for admission, we left after only an hour and a half, cold and filthy. I don't think either of us will be forgetting this travesty of an outing anytime soon! =D

     On a better note, Monday was the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox, hence--Autumn Council meeting day! I celebrated this year by reading about the Autumn Council meeting in Hope's Passage, which was a nice change of pace, since I usually think of those in the Geren books or hyarmi stories first. I had fun remembering how much I love Hu-Halle and Haliuk. =)

They use a lunar calendar, so the days per month and months per year vary, and jump about horrendously. I'm insuffiently motivated because Geren doesn't celebrate a birth-date anyway. Council meetings are easy since the equinox is fixed in our calendar, though it jumps about in theirs (whereas their full moon day generally falls around the 15th).

Here's hoping! Hopefully some year she won't be so busy in August we can go on an earlier week. I was able to get most of the mud out of my skirt though it's still drying two days later, and my costume top didn't get dirty. I wore junk shoes, thankfully, and I left my mask behind because I didn't want to risk it getting wet, but I'm still afraid to take a look at my cloak. =P Still, could be much worse!
