Hard to Believe....

... that as of today it has been a year. The seasons still change. The sun still rises and sets. The moon still follows it cycle and lights the night sky. And he's been gone a year. Some days its not hard at all. Some days, a simple thing brings a memory and I laugh or cry or both. In that year, the family has gone on and supported each other through it all. But no matter what, you're missed.

I love you, Dad.

Night Watch by Sergei Lykyanenko the first book in a vampire/others trilogy

She opened the door right away.

She didn't ask who it was; she didn't look through the spyhole; she didn't put on the chain.

In Moscow!

More on the Ren Faire trip

So left Friday after Joe got off work and headed to[info]quietish's for the night and to go to the Medieval Faire in Norman, OK.   Posted some of the photos from it the other day.

We slept on the pullout couch in the living room and sometime during the night, I heard Joe talking to someone and moving around and heard the following conversation between hubby and the female waits hobbit as he woke up to the feeling of being watched and found her face 3" from his as she simply stood there quietly:

Joe:  J?  What's wrong?
J:  It's time to get up
Joe:  *grapples around looking for remote with time on it, finds it*  No it's not.  It's only 4:30.  Time to go back to bed.
J:  Oh okay *sound of feet running around pullout bed to parents' bedroom door and the door being thrown open IT'S 4:30!

Hehhe... we simply lay their laughing at it.

The Faire was wonderful and we watched the jousting, the juggler and wandered among the stalls of vendors.  I found a black panne market dress for future faires and also for HP conferences.  Also two necklaces, one is a dragon curled around a red and black stone and the other the crescent moon around a dark rainbow one.  The moon necklace and dress will work for the persona   is helping me create as her minion, Moira Moonbeam.  Joe found a dirk he's been wanting at a very very good price there.


Justin managed to get a shot of us in our garb as well
