I finally have a photo of me and [livejournal.com profile] chaosloom together from our Dark Garden window modeling this last Sunday. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] terpsichoros for taking this one.

Will and I modeled in a Dark Garden window on Sunday, Dec. 2. This is the first pose, and does not reveal much about the story. Taken by [livejournal.com profile] terpsichoros.

Got caught up with work. Mostly. Now I need to do some billing to get paid for said work.

Still have some prep to do for the window that [livejournal.com profile] chaosloom and I are doing Saturday at 4 (it becomes a coordinated window around about 4:30) and we are going to have to wing it if we don't get any rehearsal time in. Oh well.

This weekend looks to be as busy as last one, what with a Storytelling party tonight and a Veddy British party Saturday night. Not to mention some shuffling around of schedules at the booth due to my window and various and sundry illness (stay healthy guys!) which should make Saturday... interesting (note, I did not say bad, just interesting). Oh, and I think I get to meet [livejournal.com profile] chaosloom's father at fair that day too. Yes... like I said, interesting.

To add to that, the third roommate returns from her travels so [livejournal.com profile] gardengirl_34 and I have some tidying to do. Nothing too bad, but we have been rather distracted lately, what with Dickens and the holidays.

Oh, and this gives me a good excuse to use my new icon based on a DG window from last year. I have yet to see any decent photos from the window that [livejournal.com profile] fools_and_irish and I did last Saturday. The ones my mom took are all blurry as she is still learning how to use her new camera.

Phew! Opening weekend is done and I made it out alive.

It has been a crazy week, what with getting ready for Dickens, juggling work (including getting stuff ready for [livejournal.com profile] inside_edge's Brass Farthing show and CD), Thanksgiving prep and even baby-sitting for little J on Wednesday, so it feels like an accomplishment to have made it through alive.

I will confess to not doing much of the prep for Thanksgiving in the end. It was a delightfully small and simple Thanksgiving where [livejournal.com profile] gardengirl_34 and I both had our mothers here and the three of them did most of the cooking while I decorated hats for [livejournal.com profile] chaosloom, [livejournal.com profile] gardengirl_34, and myself, as well as one for my mother to wear as well. The food was some of the best Thanksgiving fare ever, IMHO, and since all I made was the green-beans, I think I can say that without sounding boastful. Having a quiet Thanksgiving was wonderful, and provided a much needed day to relax before the storm

Crowds were thin at Dickens, but it was good to be able to sort out last minute details with the booth. The staff was somewhat slim on Friday also, which meant that I actually spent some time behind the counter, along with [livejournal.com profile] mercator_7 and a few others who made it in. I did manage to get out enough to walk around a bit with [livejournal.com profile] chaosloom while he visited with his mother and stepfather.

Saturday was probably the busiest day with almost normal crowds. My mother attended, and [livejournal.com profile] fools_and_irish and I even got to fit in a window at Dark Garden (I can't wait to see the photos!). I then had to leave early so that [livejournal.com profile] chaosloom and I could drive up to his family Thanksgiving in Napa, which went well.

Sunday was spent with hardly any time in the coffee booth. Instead I got to really work on gigs with Miss Pleasant Riderhood. A very forlorn Mr Venus ([livejournal.com profile] chaosloom) followed me around much of the time with a chalk sign stating his proposal of marriage. He even presented me with a articulated skeleton of a toad (graciously on loan from [livejournal.com profile] gardengirl_34) which I carried around with me, along with the rose and telegram he sent with his proposal, asking people if it was a suitable courting gift. I even got [livejournal.com profile] emberleo in on it when she happened by (thanks hon!).

Today I am working from home, which is a relief from the running around I had to do last week (I worked in SF for an onsite assignment). And after last week, even the workload I have (much of it stuff I should have been working last week) seems like a break from the crazy.
