I'm getting back on the wagon with working out and such. I've been feeling flabby and when I realized my Persian coat fit me too tight at the last SCA event I was at I thought "Oh crap! better start watching it!" Of course I always choose to start "watching it" around the holidays...the most tempting time of all! AHH!
Anyways, trying to work in a 30 minutes work out at day when possible just to keep the blood flowing. Thank you WiiFit!
Thanksgiving was a total blast. It was our first in our house. And silly me did not really take photos since I was busy playing hostess..aka...I was stuffing turkey in my mouth for hours. But a good time was had with my SCA family! On Friday I ventured out with wyngdlyon
, and rogue_78
aka Colleen, Christal, and Ty up to the LA fashion district for some serious fabric ventures! I think Christal won with best haul. (BTW, Christal makes fantastic hats
and Colleen makes custom bears
...just sayin'...for Christmas...just sayin'). I picked up some nice black brocade to make Doodle a doublet as a thank you gift. The guy has been busting his ass for me and Max and hasn't asked for anything in return. Its really the least I can do. I also picked up some pretty blue teal silk dupioni for myself. I plan to make a nice venitian or Florentine court gown when I have the chance. Here be the sexy fabrics!
The pictures don't do the colors justice.
(BTW, you can also check out costumenonsense
for my latest garb ventures...just sayin'). It was a great time.
Saturday? Saturday I sat on my bum all day. I was going to do some gardening but the glorious rainy weather...and I truly mean it...prevented me. So I locked myself away with some tea in my studio and worked on stuff. Have I mentioned how awesome it is to have a studio? Because its awesome to have a studio.
I'll work on tending to the front yard on my upcoming half day.
This week proves to be adventurous! Max and I plan to pick up a Christmas Tree this week! WOOOO! So STOKED FOR THIS! Granted, it won't be our first tree but it will be our first tree in the new house. Winter Arts is this Saturday. I still don't really have much worth showing but eh, What have I got to loose huh? I also got my time off request and will be going up north to see the fam soon! WOO! Hey Dasha! We must plot!! the 21-27 I'll be home! =D
So yeah, life is grand. I even stood outside the house on Saturday watching the rain from my driveway and said so outloud to Max. 2009 was good to us. It has its rocky moments in the begining but overall, yeah, it was good to us.:)
And now Scout is demanding I wash up and come to bed so I best be on my way if I know what's good for me.
