Archive for April, 2012

So, because I don’t have enough going on, I decided I wanted to learn a new craft.  That sentence is misleading, because I always want to learn new crafts, so let’s instead say that I finally put forward the initiative to learn a new craft.

Please don’t ask me why I am mentally challenged and decided on the second busiest month of my year to pick up a new skill, I have no answer.

Lookit! I've learned new things!

Appropriate for an Herbology Professor, no?

With that being said, I love it!  Obviously, since I do chain maille, I have some unreasonable love for repetitious tasks, and knitting makes warm things!  I love warm things!

It also gives my wrists a break from making chain maille, which is good for them, and on top of that, is very calming.  When you rock a temper like mine, calming tasks are great things to have.

I’ve been out and about lately, so I feel a few updates are in order.

 

Promptly after Brian returned home, we celebrated our anniversary, which falls on St. Patricks Day.  It was a whirlwind of a weekend for sure.  Saturday we went to the Metaphysical faire, I had never been and Brian wanted to take me, it smelled terrible, but it was very nice to walk through and see all of the wares, and it was far nicer to spend the day with Brian.

After the Faire, we went to our favorite restaurant down south, a little Mongolian BBQ place owned by a delightful family who always recognize us when we come in.   We proceeded to down an unprecedented amount of food, and then prepare to head up to Brighton, where the week of goodbyes to Josh and Susan would continue with their going away party.

One more Spartan Boot was had per Susan’s request.   She asked for one last one, but it wasn’t their last.

On Sunday we went to one of my favorite places in Colorado, the Buell Theatre.  I had never seen Beauty and the Beast on stage, and Brian wanted to ensure that I saw that before it left the stage.  It was, of course, magical.  The cast was brilliant, the choreography and ever present Disney genius.  I got all dolled up and donned my five inch heels (required to make my dress not drag, with the exception of the train that was, of course, supposed to), and got to see one of the best shows I have seen off Broadway.

Now comes Monday, which while not a part of the anniversary weekend is still relevant.   I raced home from work to gather Brian so we could head downtown to Josh and Susan’s apartment for the last time.   Then it was clean, clean, clean, and finally, after not eating most of the day, a birthday dinner for Josh.

With the exception of some poorly made drinks, a good time was had by all.   After shots and toasts were had by all… it was time to say goodbye.   What was left of the cleaning crew walked Josh and Susan back to their apartment and said our goodbyes.   I even managed to hold it together until we turned away from them.  Thankfully Brian drove us home.

 

Honestly, those are really the only notable things that have happened since St. Patricks weekend.   In the mean time I have been working on my class, and other things for our second biggest show of the year coming up later this month.   I’m teaching for the first time, that’s given me the jitters.  On top of Starfest, I’ve been working away at all the jewelry that we need made for the 2012  Faire season.

It’s been a juggling act to be sure,  but stress is the glue that holds me together.

Rather mundane blog post, I know!   I just figured I’d stop and give an update before I disappear in to the month of April and don’t come back out again until after the show is over!
