Saturday - Spent some time with friends doing quasi-Norse things. Vandy allowed me access to her dyestuffs and we tried logwood, bloodrot, and dandelion flowers. I provided fleece and the patience to keep watch on the fires. :)
Logwood - tint of purple, Bloodrot - tint of orange/coffee, and dandelions - tint of yellow. Vandy says if we'd put more time into prep, we would have gotten better colours.
Also spent some time crushing rock ore with the hubby so the boys can smelt iron the way the Vikings did in a few weeks.
Sunday - We got home late the night before so this was a lazy day wandering around getting a few things done here and there.
Monday, which is of course today - I took the day off because I have to get rid of some extra vacation time before the end of June and because the gardens needs me. Or I need the gardens, whichever. :)
Today I finished cutting the lawn for the first time. It's somewhat delayed because of weather and breaking down of lawn mower. Weeded the garden, fertilized the garden. Did the dishes, did some laundry. Went shopping, bought some clothes.
Am I the only woman who feels insulted by the sizing methodolgy being used these days? I consider myself a thoroughly average sized woman, and when I can't fit into an extra large shirt - because it's too small - I'm insulted. And occassionally downright incensed. Do they use 10 year old girls to base the sizing on or what?
Hmmm...ranting. Right then, well, that's it.
