Well, I didn’t sleep for shit. Was seriously high energy during the night. Our tent site is next to the tavern’s tent site… Sigh. Not the site I would have picked. So, I got a total of 6 hours of sleep but it was broken in 2 and not sound at all. Skipped breakfast and tea/coffee for some unknown reason. Went to a class on making fire with flint and steel. Was really hard to do. I wasn’t able to get fire. And Monkey managed to beat the shit out of his hands. Then we went to one on the Celtic myth. But I was less than impressed with that one. She was really frazzled and scattered. Hate that.

Then we snagged some lunch and went shopping again. We still haven’t made it to all the tents yet. I got some really good conversation with the man selling amber and I bought a really beautiful ring from him.

Monkey bought me a drop spindle for Xmas and I still haven’t learned how to use it. But I found a woman here selling fibers and yarns who agreed to teach me. We scheduled 1200 on Tuesday. I’m very excited.

Monkey’s mom, Sue, was late getting here because of car bullshit. There is never a good time for them to break. But she arrived this evening. We went to dinner at a small Italian place that had really great food. We talked with Sue for a while. Was nice to shoot the shit.

After dinner, we went to the bard tent and spent until bed time there. It was really fun. I wish I knew some of the songs so I could have joined in. Maybe next year. Dragon and I left before Monkey did with the intention of going right to bed but we ended up spending 20 minutes looking at and talking about the stars. Was a beautiful, clear night. Perfect star-gazing night. Never get enough time withe her and definitely not enough time that is just her and me.

Was a fun day.
