I’m still very tired from the adventures of Saturday and Sunday, so I only want to tell this story one time. (more…)
Today, D’vorah and I went to (Jefferson Park Community Festival) on Chicago’s northwest side. It was hot, it was steamy, it was muggy, and it was loud. Mostly we hung out, told people about the SCA, and took from them their hard earned money on a ‘Money Wheel.’ And we all had name tags that said ‘Jeff Fest.’ Here are some photos of us being silly. (more…)
It was cold and hot, smokey and wet, wonderful and terrible. That last would be because people got sick and had to be bundled off to a hotel on Friday. Which was terrible. The food was excellent, we had a great time with Al Mahala, and D’vorah had a series of FaceBook comments which I’ll pull in here for her as a blog entry.
Next time we listen to Lady Amina. Seven blankets below, seven above.
And me? I want a little Coleman (maybe this one) so that I can make a quick cup of coffee (or 12) without the need for a big fire. I’d still want the grill, mind you, for BBQ.
All items subject to editing, depending on the availability and price of fresh produce. Also, if it looks like we’ll have far too much food this way, we’ll edit down and make smaller amounts so as not to have to take home a car full of perishable leftovers. (more…)
The current plan is for Akim, D’vorah and the newest family member Tziporah (Akim’s ‘big sister’) to be at Gulf Wars next week, camping out with Al Mahala. Our tent will look something like the image here. The meal plan should be posted soon, and while we’re not feeding people for money, we’ll happily trade you a meal for some help around camp (like fire tending, a song, a bottle of Kosher Mead…).
Also, due to the merchant rules at Gulf Wars (and space on our camel, Shelby), we WILL NOT be selling D’vorah’s pottery wares, but if you come by and like the fancy bowls and plates we’re eating off of, we’ll have her card and you can drop her a note.
