I'm grateful for:
Getting to do a 'redo' of the Renaissance Festival this afternoon. It started raining while I was driving over, which got me jittery, but thankfully it stopped and the afternoon was partly cloudy and not too warm.
All the great costumes I got to enjoy while I was there, including:
humans in costume (don't want to know how many photos 'the bird-lady' (myself) ended up in!)
dog in costume
and best of all, tortoises in costume:
A tortoise in a kilt
A tortoise pulling a cart (I took a movie which I must get to Christi somehow as she'd loved to have seen that!)
I was reasonably restrained with spending, and only threw around cash for onion rings, huge pickle-on-a-stick, apple cider (twice), corn on the cob, and cheese curds...then had cash left to indulge on a fantasy print of a hunk who looks rather post-book-5 Gerenish. *drools* Not bad! (If you're really curious you can see it here, I got a smaller, cheaper print size)
Also glad that I managed to find my car in the acres of parking field afterward, especially as both the cars I'd memorized as 'markers' had left in the interim.
And I'm grateful I've got Monday off of work, as I wasn't sure how much time I'd be gone today. Writing and housecleaning, here I go!
My goodness! If that's what Geren looks like, he's a bit of a spunk! No wonder he has the girls falling all over him.
And those costumes were really something else. I presume the bird lady had wings?
I'm very glad to hear that you had such a wonderful time. Good luck with the cleaning and writing.
Nah, he'd have to grow his hair out a bit and learn how to swagger, first. ;)
Nope, no wings. I just get called that because of the owl half-mask I wear.
Thanks! It was a great day, and it was wonderful to be lazy in bed this morning.
I thought every swordsman and woman knew how to swagger! But perhaps I've just been spending too much time with Ariel and the Lionar...
Glad to hear that you've been enjoying your weekend. Did Christi go with you this time around?
Maybe so. ;) Geren's neighbors saw it as grim necessity in protecting homes and fields against bandits, not a thing of sport.
No, she didn't, which is why I want to find a way to get that cart-pulling tortoise movie to her. =)
Have a productive Tuesday!
