Plans in the making

While it was raining on Sunday I went out exploring the local Lowe's store! I think I found a new fire pit idea. I have a round metal one on legs that would fit perfectly in the center of these paving stones. (You can't have an in-ground fire). Now I have to figure out how to transport them to the campsite! Because... I'll have to bring about 4 more levels of the stones. :-/

Other camping friends, across the road, have one of these. It's like a generator but with no noise. And to full charge it up will take 35 hours and there goes my home electric bill... but it'll be worth it to have power in our primitive campsite! 
I found it on Amazon and ordered it on Sunday afternoon. I was very surprised to find it on my doorstep when I got home from work yesterday! Yay!!

Parade Pics

During the week pictures started showing up on [the big social media site] of the opening weekend and of the parade. There were huge crowds and I remember marching into a different section of the grounds to glance to the side and to see hundreds of people!
 It's almost celebrity(ish) to see many taking pictures, and you know they're of you!
This guy caught me looking off to the side as we marched by. And yes... the leaders of the Scots in the parade want everyone marching to be serious and military(ish). 
Even after the parade, when I just walking around with friends, people are taking our picture. Did I mention that we love this? We are photo whores! LOL

I'm moving a bit slow this morning. I'm fixin to go shower and then get dressed in the kilt again for the parade today. I think I'll wear the fox fur instead of the chain of office today...

Y'all have a great weekend!

Lots of random stuff

I finished reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Loved it! It's now one of my favorite books ever!

I have had several 2nd interviews for different positions within [the bank]. Now I'm just waiting and waiting and waiting to hear if they'll make me an offer or choose someone else.

Back in March I let a friend borrow my black kilt for Mardi Gras. I had to be very direct that I wanted it back. I asked nicely 2 weeks ago and no effort was made to get it to me. I had to be very direct and say "Are you home now? I'm coming to get it now!" I don't understand some people. It put me in a bad mood!

I may have that Viking outfit being delivered today! Last weekend at the ren faire it was chilly! A good wool garb outfit would be nice. You may see pictures soon.

I thawed out at the Korean spa last Sunday. I really needed it! I was cold and rainy and I needed a day to relax and just read and soak in hot water and saunas!

Thank the Gods its Friday!

Have a great day y'all!

Life stuff

This is how I live my life! Each moment at a time... and each moment lived to the fullest extent!

Saturday night

For the last 8 weekends I have slept on an air mattress in a tent! (There was 1 weekend I spent in a motel room in Giddings, TX.) I love ren faires and I love camping... it was nice to have a break from it though!

The faire was fun yesterday. A bit chilly and overcast, but a great day! 
The parade was fun. The whole cast (actors who play the part of the royals and others who are in character and always speak in old English), the shopkeepers and some groups, like the Scots, march though the faire grounds in a parade. Every faire in the country does this. It's kind of cool to have hundreds of people taking pictures of you on the march/parade route. 

But last night I wanted to be in the moment... of being alone on a Saturday night! To have the quiet of my own home and the comfort of my own bed. I am energized by the still, quiet moments in life to still my mind. I wasn't responsible for anyone or anything else. It was great! Life doesn't always have to be a big party or an endless stream of people to see, places to go and things to see. A quiet night, alone with my thoughts, is how I find solace!

Hope all y'all's weekend is going well.
