I have just been very busy.

Work continues to be busy, but that is good.
Hubby and kids all seem happy and healthy.

I have been playing some FFXIV and having some fun with that. I found a nice Linkshell and all the guys and gals are a lot of fun. Right now my highest rank is 45 Conjurer.

My SCA shire has stuff planned every Saturday in March. Tomorrow I will be going to garb sewing day and business meeting. I am no longer the group herald but I am now the web minister and that suits me just fine. My boys both need new garb before April 9th when we are hosting Spring Coronation. Galen wants a Heian Hunting Costume and Logan still wants just generic tunic and pants. Ashley has several things to pick from to wear so I am not worried about her.

I had a Amazon gift certificate so I ordered myself a copy of “Shibori: The Inventive Art of Japanese Shaped Resist Dyeing” and I want to try out some test swatches before I move on to an entire kosode. I think I will take pictures and document my tests online, perhaps some people would like to see it.

Next weekend is my monthly D&D game with my sisters so I probably should start writing a game pretty soon.

The weekend started off crappy with me waking up with a headache on Friday morning that lasted all day. I left work a little early and went home and straight to bed.

On Saturday I grabbed my books, my daughter, and headed down to Fairmont to help the forming SCA group down there with their “Persona Day”. All in all I believe it went really well. There were six people there besides Ashley and I and all of them got a good start on their personas. I’m glad I got carried away bringing books. My plan was to just grab some of the name books but then I remembered that they asked for specifically Viking resources so I grabbed a bunch of my husbands Viking books and then I grabbed a bunch of my costuming books. I also had a binder full of persona type handouts I had accumulated through the years. The costume books really helped those that didn’t even know where to start.

It was nice to be able to help them out and I look forward to lending a hand to that group again.

Saturday night I cut fabric for one kosode and then watched a movie with Shawn.

Sunday I was supposed to go to the Solstice thing in Mankato and man a demo table but I received a call from the other lady who was going and we decided to cancel because of crappy weather. The nice thing about that was I was able to crawl back into bed and nap a little bit. After my nap I grabbed the kids and headed out to my sisters house. We hung out and chatted for a bit and then I headed home. My sister was showing me her game of the Sims 3 while I was there so I fired up my PC when I got home and told little virtual beings to wash dishes and go to work for awhile. Then Shawn got home from work and we watched another movie and went to sleep.

I have no children all week and hope to get my garb done before the weekend. We will see what happens.
