and that happened

Look! I'm at an event!! Shocker!!  Naw.. it's a issue of life and stuff.  Hobby comes after everything so these moments are few and far between.  But Champs was good.  Worked hard, retained,  peeled potatoes and managed to do all the feast dishes (with assistance from another washer and 2 dryers) in 25 minutes to beat our "YOU MUST BE OUT OF THE BUILDING" time of 9pm.  I am at home in the kitchen and thank heavens I know the cooks for this one otherwise it would have been horrible.  

and I am catching up on scribal stuff.  From the 13 backlogs i have, 4 are done.  2 were wording that is out.  So not much more to go.  


Yes!!!  I have a tent and the girls have a tent.  And they have sleeping bags and mattresses..  All i need to do some class stuff and make garb for the niece.  I CAN DO THIS!!!

The Ice Dragon has left the building

Another year has passed and Ice Dragon is done.  I didn't enter anything this year as I had no time between work and life but I ran around (sick) and retained.  A few of my scrolls went out in court and I had a chance to Court Herald as well (yes, yes, keep the scroll down, i know, i know).

Fencing Tourney

Heavy Tourney

Category Scroll

Venerable Order of the Ice Dragon 
This one I am very honored to have done - Bovi is a dear friend and I am honored to have worked with him in my Kitchen and his.  

Now that its over, I can focus on the Back Log of scroll and get them done. I have a few and I need to assign several as well. 

On a side note, it amazes me how people act when presented with conflict.  The idea of Peer-like behavior was asked of me by another who is belted and I really didn't know what to say. Over the years I have seen various forms of "Peer" behavior from Lewd and vulgar acts, tantrums, bragging and more tantrums.  I turns my stomach.  Then I see a few who really shine and I aspire to be like.  Humble, teachers, assisting when not asked, doing what they have always done, looking to elevate those around them and not themselves.  Some of these people are not in the Orders at all and probably should be.  Sigh..  I need to remind myself this is a Hobby.  But like all hobbies with large groups of people, its a reflection on life.  Who do I choose to be with?  What do I choose to do?  
For now, I need to step back and offer support and think about my path.   And take a nap.

The push

Ice Dragon is next weekend and I am on the road this week.  So that means I of course have a scroll to do.  I can totally get it done today but I won't.  This one if for the Heavy Weapons tourney.  I like it so far.  Dragon needs shading yet.  He was a free hand based on an image from Pintrest.  I need to trust my free hand more.
