It ain't over 'til it's over

Bguh. I’ve spent most of today with my foot elevated, icing it on and off, watching Ghost Hunters and reading Robert B. Parker, and only a little of it hammering away on Ghosted. I’ve had more productive days… A little melancholy, I guess, having to get used to Ken being gone again, even if it’s just for a week.

That said, Grimoire has spent the day asleep on the sofa next to me, looking utterly adorable. The world can’t be all bad when you’ve got something like that.

I’d classify my sprain as moderate; I’ve definitely had worse. I can pretty much put my full weight on it when I have to. It’s swollen all to hell, and I’m eagerly awaiting potentially wild bruising, and it does ache on and off. Pheh. But I can walk, for crying out loud. The fact that my weekend plans may be shot to hell (except for the book signing) is small beans in the grand scheme of things.

This evening Morgana came over because we were the only two people planning on attending the Herbal Guild meeting at her house, and we did research for our planned Herbal Guild Spa Day—we’ll make all of the spa goodies (creams, scrubs, steams, etc.) and then get to use them. My massage therapist is willing to come and give massages, and gave me the name of a facialist who might be willing to use our products on us. Fun!

What’s also fun is several of Morgana’s books has recipes that were good for your face…or to eat. My favorite iss “Facial Conditioning Vinegar Rinse or Delicious Salad Vinegar.” :-)

Sounds like fun (the herbal part, snort). Wish we could get something like that going here, but have a hard time motivating people to attend regular stuff, much less something extra....
Take care of your ankle so it doesn't turn into anything else...

I agree - sounds like the herbal spa day will be a blast. And boy, making all the stuff yourselves, you guys are motivated.

Glad to hear the ankle isn't worse.

Margaret, I just found out there's a woman in your area who's really interested in costuming--I think she's doing Persian, but she might be someone to hook up with for regular stitch-and-bitch type activities.

And as for motivating people...note that Morgana and I were the only ones who showed up to the meeting...

Angell, this weird SCA stuff is our major hobby, so that's why we get crazy and make the stuff ourselves. We also sew our own clothes. (Margaret/malvoisine, above, has been known to hand sew her own clothes, proving she's crazier than most of us! LOL) Brew our own beer. I once knew a woman who bought a live goose so she could experience the entire cooking experience. (She did say afterwards that she had no interest in repeating the experience, mind you.)
