It began with a lovely little snow sprinkle, just enough to wet the roads and make the grass look like flour had been spilled on it.
Then it began to sleet, then rain. It was raw and cold, just nasty.
This is from a friend's house, with a tiny breakthrough of Sol.
I have a feeling this year could be cold and nasty. I hope not.

They are mounting up! Sewing for Christmas, Twelfth Night, work both places, it is fun, but time consuming. I have a couple of faux fur projects going, one of which I will show after it is done.... Looks like nothin' now. The other is this one, a fur lined hood for both SCA and mundane use. If this winter is as bad as they are saying, I will need it.

Sir Gui took two new men at arms tester day, for a year and a day, nice ceremony, they pledged to obey him, he pledged to protect them and theirs. Then the Barony had Fry Night, and I was off to bardic at Bards Haven.
This morning, the sun rose. Imagine that!

So, yesterday, about 0900ish, the watch cart calls in to base, and tells them there is a pig cavorting with a dog. Watch Commander Ronan asked somewhat tenuously, real animals? Well, yes, 'fraid so. It took over an hour to round them up,and load them into a cart for transportation... I don't know if the owners were ever found! Ah, Pennsic, it is unique!

Beginning to boil the milk to make a period non stick coating on my pot. I mean, what does boiled milk make? Casein, right? Non-petroleum based plastic. Should work, right?
Almost there. Smelly. But effective, I hope. Now I just let it cool, and.... What? Rinse? Surely not wash. Yeah, rinse. I'll let y'all know how it turns out!
Barley, chicken, onions, garlic, herbs, and good friends. Well, not in the pot. And they brought pomegranate wine!
I was too busy to get a picture of my steak last night, but overall, I would say I am eating well!
