To my fan base (haha!) :

I am desperately sorry for my absence from my blog. As I warned in the beginning, I am not so good at this. However, thanks to your persistence in pestering me to write, I have returned. Aren't you so happy? :o)

I have enjoyed 2 separate Renaissance Faires since I last wrote here. The first being the final day of our beloved Silverleaf (yes, we may all shed a tear for we will not see her again until next year). However, I do have some pictures posted of my day spent wandering among the most interesting breed of people that you find at ren faires. They are posted in my very own album on webshots.com....let see if I can get a link for you....ah, yes....here it is... oop..nevermind....laptop is being stupid....so, go to webshots.com and search for sarieeq and it should pull up my silverleaf pics automatically. Ooh...just figured out how to put some on here...splendid!! haha!



Well, I did have a wonderful time this past weekend at the opening day to the Michigan Renaissance Festival. Though, I must say, it isn't nearly as good as Silverleaf anymore. Congrats to all the bigwigs at SLRF for taking the cake from MIRF! I totally missed the Knights of Iron! They added so much to MRF in the past years, their absence is sorely noticed now. The cast of MRF are now doing the human combat chess between England and Spain. They have included pawns on the board as well as all the good pieces, and many of those are maypole dancers, so there's a lot of the "ooh...I'm too afraid to fight! - run off the board and hide." And, let me tell you, after about 2 of those, the routine gets old. Also, they need a lot of practice with their combat. Granted, it was the first day, so I'm sure it will get better, but I still miss KOI desperately. Overall, the faire was lovely and Laura and I were completely drenches by the rain, but that makes it all the better. I plan on going again soon!

In other news, I am still waiting to hear from The Biggest Loser about my application. I am praying desperately that I get on the show. I need it! In the mean time, I have resolve to exercise every day this week and really get back on the wagon with my diet. No more cheating!
We shall see...I'll try and update here as to my progress and whether or not I have reached my goal.

I think I'm going through Jeanine withdrawl....I miss you, dearest!

Argh! Apparently the pics are fuzzy, but at least it gives some idea...They are much clearer on the webshots site.

I almost called this weekend to see how MiRF was, but time got away from me. Wish I could have been there with you! But thanks for the update (it's about time!) -- it helps me feel a little less like I've fallen off the earth. Miss you too -- still hoping for Labor Day weekend. :)

Pardon the late comment, but thank you for supporting the Knights of Iron! It's because of you and those like you that we can continue to put on shows that make you say such nice things! ^_^
