Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

A busy weekend

We celebrated our 21st anniversary a bit early on Saturday.   Our guests included Larry, a friend of Kyle's from high school.  And his wonderful wife, Sherrie.  Rick and Mary Jean came, and Mary Jean got to hold a three-week-old baby. (Our neighbors across the street, Jessica and Erin brought over 2year old Jacob and new baby Elliot.)  Cera made and frosted cupcakes for us , then left for Madras with her aunty Michelle before the party started.  We have a whole tray full of sandwiches left over, white wine and lots of sodas.  The pretzel bread sandwiches were soo yummy!

The next day, we met Larry and Sherrie at the Renaissance Faire in Silverton, Oregon.  What fun!  I love the creativity and enthusiasm of the people involved in these things.  If I had a spare $150 I would have bought a Valkyrie headpiece with real feather wings!  As it was, I bought a snood and a headpiece that I could have made myself, but not as cheaply. And I bought an ear cuff that I had to be helped with by the sweetest little girl who was working the faire with her parent.    The faire had lots of costumed little kids running around and grown-ups in all sorts of fantastic attire.  Some were authentic renaissance-style.  Some were decidedly anachronistic.  Some were flat-out fantasy.  Warrior princesses and barbarians and fairies and gypsies.  Some vendors were selling incense and scented oils.  Some of the knights were wearing genuine chain mail and the necessary heavy padding.    And there were horses and jousting and armed combat in the glaring sun in 90 degree weather.  Sensory overload!  Sound and sights and smells and touch.  I avoided taste because I knew we had a tray full of sandwiches at home, but oh, dear, the cold water was welcome!!  It was a wonderful experience and maybe I can get some photos to load later.

Today is weigh-in day, and the yard still needs to be cleaned up after the party.  Guess I'd better gt to work.
