Wonderful Sunday

 So yesterday was our first day at this year's Ren Fest. 


It seems that most of our friends have signed contracts and even though the Mayor's Enterouge (sp?) was disbanded, almost everyone still has a role to play.  There has been some minor clean-up, but nothing major, and there is a new leather vendor who is doing some really cool claws that I just love.  I did find a corset that I really like and may try on when Sharon is here, but it is expensive and I'm not so sure about the dollars.  It is also back lacing, so DH would have to lace my stays, at least the first time.  But it is fully boned and there are some serious possibilities. 
Curious about what I look like?  This is the
outfit that I wore yesterday for Ren Faire. 
The clouds parted after pouring some quick rain
on us and it was a beautiful, sunny day for the
afternoon.

We didn't see any of the acts this time, just wandered back and forth.  I had $20 to spend - not a lot for this venue.  DH bought my breakfast soup for me, so my $20 was spent on my double-mead ($12 + $2 tip just because I'm a nice person) and $5.75 for my orange chicken bowl, leaving me with 25 cents.  I really wanted a bottle of water, but didn't cave to begging for money from DH.  I was exhausted from sun and fresh air on the way home though.  I drowsed at the wheel and drifted slightly, making DH both scared and angry.  But it was almost all the way home and we did fine.  I start thinking about things, though, and reality turns off.  Probably not the best thing for behind the wheel when I'm tired.  So I went to bed at 8:30 last night and slept until 3:15 this morning.  I really needed it.

You look great! :) I am glad you had a good time -- and a good sleep after it!
What I look is fat, but that's not going to go away overnight :-) The good time and good sleep were both needed.

Oh dear! I'm glad to hear it ended up well. Please be more careful next time you drive. *hugs*
Yeah, it was not a good thing. But cars seem to be my concern for the week. My car came up with a "check engine" light this morning so it's in the dealership getting checked today, and my DH's car has the transmission going out on it and without my car, that's our main transportation. **sigh**

Gracias amiga. I rarely put photos of myself anywhere because I hate myself in pics. But, if I knock off the overweight pounds I'll be closer to looking the way that I want to :-)

How nice to meet you face to face - I love the fabric that your bodice is made from.

But do, do, be careful in the car - we value you!
Thanks, Curious. I love that particular corset, although I have others, this one is just happy :-)

I'll try to be more careful, I promise :-)

I am glad you had a happy day :D

In a comment to spiced_wine you said you look fat - I disagree, mainly because you are similar in size, from the photo, to me, and I have never considered myself fat. This might be because the local population where I live are mainly about my size or much larger. You and I are of healthy appearance :D

Oh, aren't you the sweetie. I like the idea of a healthy appearance. But I know that I've put on 50 pounds since my hysterectomy about ten years ago and that's not healthy. My normal, comfortable weight is 40-50 pounds less than I currently am, and is the weight that I was at for more than 30 years. It was just those darned hormones (or lack thereof) that led into my problems. Then again, I would be dead if I hadn't dumped the uterus, so actually, all is good - :-)
