A Camping Getaway

Sometimes life likes to play little jokes. Like scheduling hospital operations in the same week I’m supposed to go medieval camping and teach two demonstrations on medieval medicine. Good heavens. Yesterday I didn’t think I’d make it, but today is a new day and a much, much better one. It’s amazing what a whole lot of rest and good sleeps will do for a body.

I took things slow and steady and bit by by everything came together. My gear is all packed, medieval medicines made, notes printed. I think I’m set.

I’m really looking forward to our weekend getaway, cozy winter nights sleeping in our oh-so-warm Bedouin tent, foggy mornings around the campfire, late nights sipping homemade mead and swapping stories before bed.

Last year was my first time teaching medieval medicine and I was so nervous I nearly made myself sick. This year is different. This year I know my material well and the recipes and uses just come to mind naturally. This year I get to relax and enjoy it, delighting children with talk of bone saws and stitching them up with horse hair, meeting people from all over the world, visiting the myriad camps and learning as much as I can.

Mostly I’m excited to spend time with my Bear and our dear friends. It’s lovely to be with comfy folks, isn’t it? With people who love you and tease you and are glad you’re around. It’s the best medicine.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend with people who love you. xo
