Looks awful, but it is actually not too bad. I have finished all the dewing except for one chiton, which entails exactly two small tailor tacks, so sewing is essentially complete. I have dragged out all clothing and the wool will be home drycleaned (tumbled in good-smelling stuff) and the cotton and linens will be refreshed in the dryer with a damp towel. Candles and other lighting stuff is packed, cooking gear ditto. Feast gear is packed and so is entertainment stuff and jewelry. The all important honeypot is ready, as is the bedding. The bath and mundane clothes will be done last minute. Foodstuffs are as ready as can be done at this stage. More to be done later. Packing will happen Tuesday night after work and Wednesday morning. Panic is actually subsiding! A little.

I got to visit my sis this weekend, and it was so nice. I only get to do that about once or twice a year, so I value each time alot. I was going to get a nook after I got back (my wonderful hubby's anniversary gift to me, given early) but Kris suggested I get it early so I could work out the details BEFORE I go to Pennsic, and I am so glad I did.... there is a definate learning curve. Good idea, Kris!
Kris and Don have 3 siberian huskies, and they are very cute. We all had a great time talking and shopping and just being together. The weather was very hot, and the trip home was rough.... the photo of the cars show an accident around Lexington Va that had us all sitting in the heat a long time. Worth it though. Kris, I love you!

Hurrah! for the flag of the free,
May it wave as our standard forever,
The gem of the land and sea,
The banner of the right.
Let despots remember the day
When our fathers with mighty endevour
Proclaimed as they marched to the fray
That by their might and by their right
It waves forever.
