Best thing today was a lovely Winter's Feast with the Northern Calif. Renaissance guilds. This is the first since we decided to join (as opposed to storing the props, loaning the truck to get them to various faires, and hosting the many sewing fests for the daughter and SIL and guild friends) and it was quite fun. The food was great (whole roasted pig, flaming pudding, and even some non-period potatoes -- excepting the haggis, but then, it was a Scottish guild hosting, so they had to serve haggis) The Celtic band was good. Too loud for me, but the dh thought they were just right.
But then he's near deaf from playing in his own band.
next year, I'll get him onto the dance floor if I have to drag him!
