My Day In The SCA

It was a long and tiring and wonderful weekend for me. I guess that's why I am sitting here at 11PM+ on a Wednesday trying to get something up on my poor neglected blog.

I never did get to go to see the Tut Exhibit due to school problems and late openings. Will try again later.

We Did get to go see "Music and Lyrics" which is really lite and cute. No heavy stuff here. Catchy tunes for sure.

On Saturday my friend Kat and I spent from morning to night at a "Day in the Middle East" event sponsored by the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism, which is a group dedicated to researching and recreating the Middle Ages in the present.)

Kat is an active member and we were there "merchanting" on Saturday - which means we sold our stuff and did pretty well. It was a cold cold day and God bless Kat who did all the loading and unloading of a lot of stuff. I mostly just sat behind the table or wrapped people in sarees.The only breaks we got were when "Court" was in session. Thank goodness for that.

The theme was "Middle East" which was great for us as merchants selling Eastern items, but being Not A Big fan of middle eastern food I could have done without the wrapped grape leaves and pickled radishes. Next time I'd prefer "A Day in an Italian Restaurant" thank you very much.

On Sunday I visited my dear friend Karen and her family and on Monday got to spend a lovely day with my friend Luci who actually lives in MD where I was over the weekend but she had been in NY and stopped by NJ to visit me on her way home.

I had a blast, an exhausting blast, but a blast none the less.

This is my last busy week before the baby who is due in 2 weeks. After Sunday night I am done. D-O-N-E.

Nothing scheduled. Nothing going to be scheduled- for a while...
