I had a great weekend.  Yesterday, Candlemas.  What to say other than "WHEEEEEEEE!" really? 

It was a blast, other than some upset on the part of a friend of mine, which was ameliorated a bit by a trip to Sephora.  :-( 

Other than that, it was a fabulous day. I was in change of ambiance, and other than a few banners, I feel like I didn't do anything.  I tried to help keep pancua sane, and I *think* I was successful, but after the event started, it just kinda ran like a top.  It was great!

Granted, I did set up a "chapel" area, like would be in any Spanish hall or large villa, and evidently, it was well received.  I was a bit worried that we'd offend someone, but I think perhaps I underestimated the folks in our barony.  I did see a few people using the area, kneeling and lighting candles before the statue of the Virgin, so that made me so happy I can't say.  (I have no clue what I'm going to do with the statue now, but she's awfully pretty.  Perhaps in the office?)

Morning court was a blast!  I knew Ioannes was getting a Sable Comet, but he was also given a Queen's Rapier for his fencing and heraldic activities in Afghanistan.  The Queen's Rapier surprised the daylights out of him, and I teared up.  It was wonderful to see.  I did admit to bawling when Avery and Gwyneth stepped down (and I'm never able to remember how to spell her name!).  They were my re-introduction to the SCA  after a disastrous experience in Meridies.  They have been so amazing, and it's been wonderful to play here in Bryn Gwlad.  I'm looking forward to Pug and Myfanwy as the new B&B, but wanted to make sure A&G knew how much they meant to me.

During feast, I got a huge compliment about how awesome my husband is, and that made me smile.  He is truly amazing and it always makes me happy with other folks recognize it.

The after-party wasn't, since the event ran so late, but Robert and Simone came by to hang out.  I think I punched out about 0100, and they and the boys stayed up till after 0200.  Party animals!

Today was a bit lazier. Got up, sent Ioannes off to rapier practice, and hung out until it was time to go to Hellsgate's practice. 

Wait!  I did get my helm strapped, although now I need to epoxy the Velcro in and sew it to the helm liner so it doesn't slip around too much.  However, OMG, period helm liner FTW!  I need some help getting it a bit poofier in the top, but the one I have now with a doughnut works.  Also, I started on my leather tooling for the A&S armor.  I got a ton of compliments about the painted vambraces so I can't imagine how the tooled stuff is going to go over!  It's not too bad, since I don't know what I'm doing.  See?

Not too shabby for having no real clue, I think!

Well, off to put together uniforms and such for tomorrow.  Gym then work!
