I will be busy on weekends in June, but I am hoping against hope that I can catch up during the week. I have been doing the usual sub station work, (having, through good fortune and a weak stomach) avoided cleaning buckets (which in a former life held powdered egg, were cleaned, not so well, and put away wet. I did... 2, before I decided losing my lunch was NOT worth it. I offered to do almost anything else, which led to a lot of cutting out of booklet material. I can cut with the best of 'em, and so decided that would suit me much better.
Wouldn't ya know, that would be the ONE time, no one had brought a wheel with a flax spike. I explained it to her as best as I could, but really wished I had a picture or something, I don't think that she quite understood my explanation. And no one else had anything like that on their wheel, either. Poo.
I helped at the Triathalon, and the gal I mentioned was there, just as neat as always, she was getting a smidge pink when she got back, (she is fair skinned and blonde, and I don't think she used quite enough sunscreen), but she was absolutely glowing with happiness to be on the go again.

I do have an idea for an outfit, however, if Lady Whatshername ever does come to fruition, if I can afford the red and black velvet. (Yes, velvet, or at least fake velvet, that was all the rage with the hip nobles of the 16th century. Just because it's 90 degrees and out in a hay field, details, details...)
I am laughing, sort of, I have had noting but my 'regular' things to do, and very little on weekends. Come June, however, I will have at least a choice of 2 (or more) every weekend! Oh, and I was told I could go and help out at the ren faire and do some training the weekend I am going to see Petty.
Don't EVEN think so!
