The wifi didn’t seem like it was working on my phone but it appears to be working on the IPad. Fingers crossed….
The kids were up with me this morning. The Boy was dropping a friend off at the airport and the Girl went with him so he didn’t have to drive home alone. He did okay, I was relieved. I wasn’t too worried because the Boy likes to drive but there is a lot more traffic in a big city than where we live.
I was a little worried about rain this morning and I luckily dodged most of it. There were brief periods of misting and other times there were big fat rain drops but nothing that impaired my driving. I pulled in to the Faire ahead of schedule, loaded up my new wagon with art, and headed down the bumpy terrain. As soon as I dropped the handle of the wagon in front of the booth there was a large boom of thunder. I went around back, unlocked the door, and opened the front doors. I pulled the wagon into the booth right before the rain started. I couldn’t have timed that better if I tried.
It was a good day for the most part. There seemed to be more drunk people than usual but other than that it was good. There were also quite a few guys dressed in women’s garb. A Renaissance Faire drag queen…why not? Maybe drag queen is the wrong word? I’m pretty sure a good drag queen will require more than one glance to be sure…there was never a question that these were men.
My Holy Fire Reiki teacher even surprised me with a visit! Today was her birthday and this is where she wanted to go, so her husband and daughters brought her. We didn’t get to talk to much because I was working but we did catch up a little.
When there a lot of drunk people they tend to not want to leave. It took me a long time to get out of there tonight. I’d rather it be tonight than tomorrow night. The new hotel is only one turn away from the old hotel so I found it without a hitch. The wifi seems to be working so that is huge plus! I still wiped everything down and moved my car once I found my room. It’s really old and outdated here but it’s 100% better than the awful place that I have been staying. There are a lot more people staying here as well. I even saw other people from the renaissance faire. The lady in front of me at check in was here doing genealogy research. She lives in Arizona. There’s that genealogy thing again….it keeps popping up.
I will try to get a little writing done, hopefully it ends up being more than anticipated. I wasn’t sure that the wifi would work and it was a long day, ending with a new hotel. I’m still going to give it a try. I printed out what I have written and studied it pretty good today. Yes there are things that need cleaned up and a punctuation check wouldn’t hurt but for the most part…..I like what I have written so far. I makes my stomach do flip flops and I’m a little giddy….is that a bad thing? Mostly I just spend time proofreading and am only looking for errors. Today I read it from beginning to end, only pausing to make a quick edit. I don’t think I have done that before today.
Is it wrong that I like what I have written so far? It’s far from perfect but I am very proud of where I am in the writing process. Some things are even a surprise to me. The Girl read it last night and asked “where are you going with the feather thing?” I looked at her and said “I have no idea where the feather thing came from in the first place so I have no idea how it is relevant or where I am going with it….all I can do is persevere and hope for the best….Zia
