*Had a blast going around Las Vegas, seeing the Sights with J and J and T.

*OMG some of the most amazing food I've had in a long time. Paid for it both with money and weight gain but I have no regrets. Have places I would like to try should I get out there again.

*coming home to being told by the critters that the missed me deeply and are glad I'm home.

* continuing to make progress in the weight loss challenge and signed up for a FB SCA biggest loser challenge to keep me going after the one at work ends. (while I don't expect to win at all since I've been working on the weight loss for a month now and will probably hit a plateau soon, it gives me incentive to keep going to at least Pennsic)

The body language with all the dogs was tails and ears up, even if it was at times "I can take you" from the girls. It was cute that when Grimmy asked to go back inside Riley stood at the fence and whined until I went and got him to come back out and talk to her some more.

Totally forgot to post this earlier in the week

* did gym time

* Friday dinner with Boogie

* Fun day at the event and some good conversation along the way.

baronessekat: (pollyanna)
* only one day in the pool but that's better than no days in the pool

* not having to stress to get a scroll done. Oh I still have ones to do but I could take the week and NOT work on one.

* lots of puppy and kitty snuggles all week.

* News that made me very happy and a bit worried at the same time.

* Friday family dinner with Boogie and Captain Æthelmearc.

* Enjoyable trip up to Ealdormere to witness how another kingdom does an A&S event. Even helped to judge.

* Dinner and needed conversation with [livejournal.com profile] much_ado. I only wish I had had the courage to have that conversation 2 years ago. But no point in wasting time on shoulda, coulda, mightas.
baronessekat: (pollyanna)
* while not done, I got the scroll to a point where I was OK at least showing it for court. It got the OOH, but I think that's only because it is covered in gold.

* lovely Friday family dinner at the Doma with Katie and the Duchess. Grimmy had happy pack time with one of his favorite humans.

* The event in general went well. Lots of backlog scrolls were reunited with their forever people.

* Despite it being the 4th time I have spoken for someone's elevation, this was the first time I've spoken for someone from MY Kingdom.

* I won the Heraldic Display category in the A&S display. I don't know where I ranked in the Scribal Arts one, but I did not expect to win and I'm so excited for the man who did. He did amazing work and really deserved it.

* Nimbus is coming out more and has been doing food with the other felines rather than asking for his bowl to be in another room. And he got morning time with Meirwen over breakfast Saturday morning.

* Sunday morning staff meeting at the Doma. I made JUST the right amount of food. Just enough cheesy hash browns left over for breakfast this morning but otherwise no left overs.

* A Sunday afternoon of nothing but curling up in the recliner and dozing and snuggling with the critters and watching mindless TV.

* Not only getting approval for an advance but being handed a check from the Kingdom to cover my airfare to go to KWHSS! VEGAS BABY!!!
baronessekat: (pollyanna)
* monthly project that I usually don't get done until the 15th of the month done by the 7th.

* puppy and kitty snuggles throughout the week.

* got to watch the first disc of last season of Game of Thrones.

* accepting the issue is just not as fixable as I need in the time I need. Sometimes you just need to and reorder materials. The old material will be used another time and worked around.

* Fun at the company annual Bowling outing. I sucked and didn't break 100 but I had fun and that's all that matters.

* Sushi dinner with Captain Æthelmearc and Mistress Y.
baronessekat: (pollyanna)
* My TARDIS jersey arrived.

* New sunglasses arrived.

* Nimbus slowly becoming more social with the rest of the household

* Calligraphy on Pelican scroll done. First time using Oak Gall ink. No one warned me how much the stuff stinks.

* delicious dinner at favorite German place with J&P and Kate.

* Car brought up to code.

* Breakfast with Boo.
baronessekat: (pollyanna)
* all materials for Pelican scroll arrived.

* word that my new sunglasses and TARDIS jersey have shipped and should arrive soon.

* never-ending pile on desk downgraded to "no so intimidating" status instead of "OMG how will it ever get done" status

* New family member. Nimbus Alexander Ekaterinavich is a 2 year old, Long Hair Russian Blue mix. (I suspect he is also part Ragdoll as he goes boneless when I pick him up)



* Went and taught at the College of 3 Ravens. I fully expected to yet again have no students for my "Who do I fight next" class as has happened the last two times I've tried to teach it formally. Instead I had 8 students. It went very well and all were engaged and open. (Though if we all get sick we know which student gave us the crud as she showed up sniffling and sneezing and coughing).

*The paint a blank table at 3 ravens was well received as well.
baronessekat: (pollyanna)
* Delivered the prize scrolls for Ice Dragon

* started plotting out the Pelican scroll for Ice Dragon

* Made it back to Aquafit

* Wonderful family movie/scribal/dinner night. Introduced P to "Muppet Treasure Island" and "Undercover Blues"

* Left over Fried Chicken
baronessekat: (pollyanna)
* finished a couple books and started a couple more.

* New glasses. Not sure if this really falls into something I'm glad about or not due to the need to have progressive bi-focals. I think so as I can read without having to take my glasses off and bring the book practically to my nose. I just need to get use to moving my head when I look around instead of just my eyes.

* Introduced J&P to The Library. Which allowed me the joy of ending a crazy work week with two very tall Jamisons and Ginger Ales.

* Opening Ceremonies.

* Despite what I found to be an uncomfortable site, I went to 7 Deadlies and watched two dear ladies get elevated, one into the Pelican and one into the Laurel. Also witnessed several other very deserving awards go out, including a writ for a Pelican. He's asked me to do his elevation scroll. Now to figure out what style to do and hope the vellum arrives in a timely manner.
baronessekat: (pollyanna)
* managed to get all but three of assignments from the HUGE new set of dockets sent to me assigned. The three that are not I'm just waiting on emails and if I don't hear back by tomorrow will reach out again.

* two scrolls finished. One for 7 Deadlies one for Ice Dragon. I liked how the illumination for the one for Ice Dragon came out. But I used a new ink for the calligraphy and hate it and can't really fix it.

* Was in a place that I could come to a friend's aid.

* Indian food.

* watching Grimmy and Puck play tag.

* Anti-superbowl dinner with Captain Æthelmearc, Kate and 'dicea having yummy food and playing Cards Against Humanity. It was fun to watch the Captain blush and stammer "I can't say that".
