I Really Hate....

...that Blogger changed their sign-on protocol. ARGH!

But I finally remembered my password! Ha!!

It's been a busy summer. BSG (Black Sheep Gathering), NWRSA conference in Idaho, Merry Greenwood Players Renaissance Fair, Gig Harbor Renaissance Fair, a visit from my parents, the various fairs (Evergreen State Fair opens on Thursday, runs through Labor Day. I had a shawl that I was working on almost non-stop so that I could enter it!)

I've misplaced my digi-cam cable, so even though I've been taking photographs, I haven't figured out how to get them onto my computer to share with you. .. and my primary computer is losing its hard-drive, so I'm trying to figure out how to salvage what I can before it dies beyond all hope.

Update on my knee: It's doing *much* better! This week, for the first time since the injury, I actually had a 2-hour timespan during normal activity in which I didn't think about my knee! Didn't get distracted by pain, didn't think about how to shift my weight properly. It's a *huge* difference. And this week it rained and my pain level didn't spike! (also for the first time since the injury) Maybe I'm actually going to get better after all!

Tonight: dance class. Tango and waltz and foxtrot still hurt my knee too much to attempt, but I get along alright with rhumba and swing and cha-cha (shorter steps), so we're learning Latin-style right now, and saving the smooth dances for later. I miss doing contra dance but for now it's still too risky. Ice skating is still a challenge-- I take it slow, wear the brace, take Advil before and ice pack it afterward. Perhaps I'll be able to skate in the winter exhibition, though. That would be nice.

    Hi! Glad your knee is doing well and you're able to do more of the things you love.

    Oh I am glad you are feeling better!
    I missed you.

    The Ren Fairs sound so much fun.
    We have been so busy that we only were able to attend our usual 'Old English Faire'/camping trip with our sca buddies.
