Last play of the season was Saturday and I took Hedwig. It was the first social thing we've ever done just the two of us. It was also the best play of the season in my opinion. Set in 1948 in a small town Saskatchewan, it touched on issues of gossip, forgiveness, oath taking and breaking, integrity, our responsibility to each other, as well as being very funny.

Sunday, after church, I went to a party at Dar Tajine (a Moroccan restaurant.) It wasn't an official OMEDA party - more like people from the dance community that Zelia had invited to a lunch. It was fabulous. The food was great and I don't usually like Moroccan food. (I don't like raisins and then tend to be in every dish.)
Some people got up and did solos. I had such a great time that I stayed late and was 20 minutes late for the SCA meeting.

The meeting was good. Kes and Menken are having a brainstorming session on June 22 and I definitely want to be there. After the meeting, I went to Mom and Dad's and did some sewing. Champ - the VBS puppet - now has his ears in the correct position. And I made his little breastplate of righteous. (Only 5 pieces of armour to go!) There is something surreal about making armour out of felt for a doggy puppet - sort of like my world of Youth Ministry and the SCA colliding in a bizarre dream.

Today is clean up the house day. It is almost 1:30 and I have finished 1 of my 6 things to do on the list. We cleaned up the nursery. If the time it takes to clean a room is say 20 minutes, the time it takes to do the same task with a 2-year-old assistant will be 40 minutes.

I looked up Maxfield Parrish last week. bhanfhlaith suggested I might like his art when she replied to my quiz (http://www.livejournal.com/users/vesta_venus/24127.html). His work strikes me as the missing link between pre-Raphaelite art and the work of the Brothers Hildebrandt who did all those cool Tolkien calendars. Here's a link to some of his art:

Toldja Max is the poo :)
His most recognized painting by the way, is "Daybreak", looks like two lithe youths, one male standing over a reclining female in a pillared archway at dawn. Quintessential Parrish. *purrs*

Glad the recommendation was well met.

Sort-of about pulling the canton together as a cohesive group. Right now the feeling is that we are a collection of sub-groups with no loyalty or interest in the larger whole.

Actually, that doesn't really do it justice. They are going to be sending an email soon down the Skrael and Caldrithig lists and contact the heads of fencing and dancing (who have members that don't read the Caldrithig list)to invite them to this brainstorming session. The email will explain their focus far better than I am.

Ah, lovely! Thank you! :-D

I know they were concerned about this, but I didn't know that there was to be a meeting. I am glad to hear there is and I look forward to the mail about it!
