The Hat

6 November 2009

I wish there was a way for me to take a photo that would actually show the scale of this wonderful witch hat I wore last weekend. But, I’m afraid I’ll have to leave the photographing of me (5 feet tall) wearing the hat (3 feet tall) to somebody else.

At after two a.m., though, when Kat and I finally gave in to the “tired” that was creeping over us as we worked, the hat caught my weary eye, and thus became my photo for the day.

I am at faire this weekend without my husband . . . something that never makes me happy. He discovered yesterday that he has a big, nasty deadline of Monday for a major project at work and there is simply no way he can comply without putting in more hours this weekend. He is not a happy camper. And I’ll be lonely without him.
But, the dogs will be delighted!

Yay! Once again, I made it to a PubGuys recording session—this one at No Frills Grill North. The session should make a great show, and I love this photo of the guys toasting at the wrap!

Dragon and Dragonfly

4 November 2009

When I took this photo, I had no idea it would be so cute! This is a shot of a plant on my newly re-arranged kitchen windowsill. The little ceramic dragon is a faire find from many years ago. I actually wish I could remember the name of the shoppe or crafter, but alas, I cannot. The little dragonfly pot edge hanger is a simple thing that came from a big box store, but I think it’s lovely and I know it makes me smile.

Candle on the Wall

3 November 2009

I am not proud of this photo—I took like twelve shots trying to get a good one, and by the time I got this one passable one, I was simply too tired to keep trying. That’s what I get, of course, for waiting until the wee hours of the morning to realize I haven’t taken my photo, yet. I have got to stop doing that!!!

Fall Plantings Saturday, Nov 7 2009 

Fall Repotting

2 November 2009

Every fall, somewhere in the middle of TRF, I get a wild hair to do some indoor gardening. I keep a number of “hard to kill” pothos plants in the kitchen windowsill and in our dining room nook, and they occasionally require repotting or clipping. And sometimes, my little clippings that also live in vases on the windowsill mature to the point that they have viable roots that make them ready for their own little pot and some dirt. 

I can’t explain why I love doing this . . . I’m sure a psychologist would have plenty to say about how I’m satisfying some need to nurture . . . scratching a mothering itch of some kind. And, that doctor would probably be right.

Today’s repotting project resulted in a new arrangement on the windowsill and a few fall decorations tossed into the mix.

Jonathan Sketches Iris Saturday, Nov 7 2009 

1 November 2009
After a bit of coercian and some coaxing and a bit of beer, I convinced Iris & Rose to let Jonathan sketch their butts so that I could hang it in the Pendragon Costumes shop at TRF and at East Wind Games or Pendragon at Scarborough. This photo shows the beginnings of the process as Jonathan captures the backside of Iris. The end result is delightful and will be proudly displayed.

Cheers.

My 42nd birthday and day 3 of the celebration. Today, I got up, got spiffed and went out onto the faire grounds where I had a fantastic day. Nuff said. 🙂

Damaris in Mid-Swing Saturday, Nov 7 2009 

30 October 2009
A continuation of my birthday celebration that began the day before saw me playing golf for the first time in about 9 years. Although my game has suffered, my enjoyment of the game has not lessened in the years. I had an amazingly fun time with my two dear friends Damaris & Roxy. The weather was glorious, the golf was fun, and the course was beautiful. I look forward to doing it again.

Waterway Square and the Goose’s Acre Saturday, Nov 7 2009 

29 October 2009
I took today off so that Marita Beth & I could drive to TRF early and visit an Irish Pub I’d recently heard about in the Woodlands. We drove through an incredible amunt of rain on the way down and it showed no signs of stopping. I was, however, determined. So, we picked up Kelly, Damaris & Roxy and headed to the Woodlands through storms that were way too powerful for comfort. At times, we were so limited in visibility that we crawled along at less than 10 miles an hour. But, we arrived safely in the Woodlands and located the Goose’s Acre – a charming little upscale Irish Pub. There was no ready parking, so I dropped off the ladies and went in search of a spot which I finally found. On the walk to the Goose’s Acre, I stopped long enough to snap this shot:

If you find yourself in the Woodland’s I highly recommend the Goose’s Acre as a stopover.
Cheers.

After a weekend at faire, freshy-washed Girl Glass makes an excellent photographic subject.
