Happy Belated Halloween! ๐ŸŽƒ

Another year of working Trauma complete. This is the first year I only worked one night and I also did very little scenes. Three flogging scenes to be exact. The week or so before my left shoulder had popped itself back into place while holding Riley before one of his therapy sessions. It made a lovely sound and was a bit painful but I had been in some pain with it before, hence the shoulder pop. It was sore for a while afterwards so I really was avoiding swinging a flogger with that arm for too long. I wasn’t as helpful as I usually am but that’s life sometimes. But…this is also the first year I actually saw more than one performance. The few I saw were really good. As someone who self suspends I really want to give suspending with that rig set up. Maybe in a few years.

Let’s see…

Red Dragon plans were canceled for us this year. I spent the night before out and by the time I got home the freezing rain had started. Yuck! With lack of sleep, shitty weather and kids being up way to early we opted to stay home instead. The pictures from the event looked like everyone had fun though. ๐Ÿ™‚

This past week our local shire had a garb night and dance lesson recently and while no dance lesson happened I did manage to get some photos of the kids walking around in library where we meet in their sca garb. Being a book lover, I loved this idea and am glad I was able to get some photos like that. I tend to take a shit ton of pictures, my phone has close to 8,000 photos on it, but this is just a few. A new camera is something that has been on my list of things I want to purchase for years but until I get to buying myself one my phone camera works for now.

What’s the next event we plan to attend? I’m not sure yet when it comes to me and the kids. Josh will be attending an embroidery class tomorrow which he will enjoy and if there are handouts I will enjoy looking at them. I’m slow moving on what I’m deciding as far as a persona or clothing in general.ย  I have been given a sideless surcoat that I think I’m going to make a kirtle (?) for it. Sewing clothes is still foreign for me but I think that is what I’m looking to make. We have some extra fabric that I think I can manage to make one out of, hopefully. The kids still need some new clothes made so as soon as we can purchase more material that will be happening too.

Happy Belated Halloween & pumpkin spiced everything!

Goodbye, October…Hello, November

Today is apparently my 3rd year blogging anniversary under this account. It’s shocking that ย I only have one other post to show for it but that’s what is to be expected when you choose to make a fresh start. I’m sure that parts of my old posts will find their way into this blog somehow as those things about me haven’t really changed, I just preferred to let them go… off into the deep dark(?) internet abyss and start over, if you will. ๐ŸŽˆ

Goodbye, October…

There was quite a bit of fun with crafts, hiking, and most things pumpkin with the kids this year. They had a blast and I tried harder to get in more pictures than I usually do. It tends to be hard to deal with all 3 kids while working the camera on my phone in the middle of whatever we are doing. But I managed to get a few pictures that turned out well. I’m hoping to actually upgrade to a new camera within the next year, as the old family one was handed down to my daughter & oldest son to use. They had fun taking turns taking pictures when the battery was charged. ย  ๐Ÿ˜Š

Our normal Halloween countdown was used but instead of me putting in ideas each day each child choose what they wanted to do for that day instead of everyone doing the same thing. We also went to a different pumpkin patch this year. Kids had fun & pumpkins were cheaper with free things for the kids to do there as well. It was the first year of justย the kids & I and surprisingly enough, it worked out. ย I even managed to get some pictures. Good gods, there seemed to be quite a few firsts the past month. (O.O)

So with Trick-or-Treating, Trauma & Fall leading into Winter, I’m hoping to continue to push past the usual. Continue to find, create and capture those moments with family & friends. But most of all, to keep growing, learning & digging deeper roots.
