A Medieval-ing I Go

I woke up this morning feeling so much better after a ghastly virus that knocked me flat this week. I’m so thrilled because tomorrow Bear and I leave for History Alive where we will meet up with our medieval group, Blackwolf, for four days of medieval camping, eating, and general jollity. I’m so excited!!

Today was spent bustling about packing garb and foodstuffs, organizing medieval weapons, and gathering herbs, spices and other fun things for my medieval medicine display.

I’ve got my bone saw ready, bandages rolled, and various concoctions bottled and corked. Our animals are all tucked in and cared for, the dishes washed, laundry done.

Now all that’s left is a good night’s sleep before piling in the car at first light and heading off for adventures of a medievalicious kind.

Soon our modern clothes will be folded away, replaced with handmade items of linen and wool that are so comfy I could sleep in them.

I’m looking forward to meals of roasted meats, late nights laughing and talking around the fire, and sleeping outside with fresh, cool air blowing in off the river.

What are you looking forward to most about your weekend? xo
