Lovely moment with a good outcome - thanks for sharing!

Souvent entre piez de chevals

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

*High fives!* I was able to get all the way into and almost even button my at-least-2-sizes-too-small-six-months-ago jeans a week and a half ago! Woo!

Had a VERY good lunch today with a very good friend.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Slow progress is actually better since it means you're more apt to have lasting results. Well done.

The dish I made for class turned out well. The few people that tried it said mine was better than the one from the day before. :)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Congrats, Nefret! Is this a hobby or are you taking classes to change/enhance your career?


Baby cardinal update: spotted Dad flitting around our pourch, so went out to check. A baby (juvenile?) cardinal was fluttering around in our bushes. It's grown in the past few days...is starting to get its distinctive cardinal crest! :)
