a local castle, is holding a 2 day Medieval Event this July 20-21 and I and my friends will be selling there!!! Me in garb with my friend and her 2 kids as well! At a real castle! Selling my historical handcrafted bags! Man, I really can relate to Amy Farrah Fowler when she says "I wish I could go back and tell my younger self that it really does get better!"

Torpa Stenhus (literally Torpa Stone House) remains from what was a substantial fortified complex on the Ätran River, strategically placed to stop marauding Danes from heading all the way up river. There are also some more modern buildings in the area, including a cafe.

I bought some pansies a couple of days ago as well as a sort of clover with black leaves since it is FINALLY warm enough to have some outdoor plants. My indoor ones are no where near ready to go out on the balcony but they certainly appreciate the longer days. Why are the black pansies more expensive than the dark purple ones, btw?!!!

I missed-out on going to Årås Kvarn (old mill now turned into pub, etc) last night to sing-in spring because the weather was just too nasty and I am still fighting my cold/virus thingie. So now I am cross. And my throat hurts and my head is stuffy. I slept in this morning and haven't set foot outside my apartment except to walk Siofra at 6 am.


Puppy update

Siofra is totally back to normal, tummy and all, and is back to playing with her toys.

Meanwhile, Kerstin and I are planning to sell at the Torpa Stenhus (stone house, all that is left of a medieval castle complex) Medieval Days this summer. The boys and I can make their costumes together so that they can practice their English as well as their sewing skills. I have some red fabric printed with gold stars that would work well.


Manic monday redux

Actually, Tuesday. Siofra is, like Sasha, a huge fan of eating disgusting things that she finds when we walk in the woods. This happened again on Sat, which meant puking all Sun and, when I got up on Mon, a HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE, EXTREMELY UNFORTUNATE diarrhea incident had occurred. This had apparently been what was needed to completely clear her disgestive tract of whatever the ickiness was that she had eaten. The rest of Mon. was spent eating rice in chicken broth (with added dextrose) and today she is back on regular puppy chow, still with some added broth. She drank a whole bowl of water as well so I think she's completely rehydrated at least.

This is the second time this has happened with Siofra. Scotty was, thankfully, a picky eater and only ate his dogfood and a few, select sorts of table scraps. The first time this happened with Siofra I talked with the vet who was very impressed that I knew the whole routine with rice flour, dextrose, etc. and didn't really have anything to add so this time I didn't call.


Ok, this is how I look in my head!

I was supposed to go to Furulunds, the mega-fabric store in Borås, today with Kerstin but am just too totally under the weather. I am seriously considering climbing back under the covers for a nap instead. She wants me to remake/redo her red dress from last year's Spring Ball and I have an idea about removing the neckline ruffle and adding an "over dress" in lacy material. I've even found a Vogue pattern that I think will work well with my having to do a major reworking. http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v2880-products-6838.php?page_id=861
