Well, it's been over a month since I've posted. Sorry for any of you out there on the interwebs trying to follow along! I've just been either very busy, or very sick for most of that time! But, today, I am feeling a little better, inspite of being very sick yesterday. Still a little under the weather, but better.
Went a viking Saturday! I have a group of friends I play with from time-to-time, they call themselves the Vanir-lag. They have been playing at being Vikings (much like the SCA, but Norse)for around 25 years or so now. They have a wonderful woman who fell in love with the group and invited them to have events on her property. So, for the last 5-6 years, they've been building a "Viking Village" on her property. Talk about fun! They've built an absolutely gorgeeous sweat-lodge: Made from recycled lumber from an old cedar fence! They have a forge on site to make ironwork, a cooking hearth with a hand made clay and straw oven they bake bread in, . They're building a kitchen area that they can use year after year, have an archery range and this year, they've built a treadle lathe! Just an amazing advancement for a bunch of part-time amateurs!

Til next time!

OMGs! That's gorgeous. How lucky she is to have attracted Vikings to her property.

Clearly, putting up birdfeeders is not taking me as far as I could go. So, what kind of feeders are Vikings attracted to?

Glad to see you posting again, and I'm glad you're feeling better. You, your lady, and your kids: take good care of each other and be careful during the flu season, k? Love you guys.
