As posted the other day, by calygrey,  (thank you for that, you probably reached more folks than I might) My Ex-husband (Ron Depot/Abelard Kif de Marseilles,  passed away over the weekend. A lot of people have asked "how do feel about that?" 

Funny thing, I think I should feel more. He used to be a huge part of my life, I married him, we had about 10 years together, not all good, but 10 years nonetheless. We both moved on, and so much time has passed, he had 2 other wives, 2 other lives. I feel that there is a space, now. Not an emptiness, just a ... space. Is that cold? I'm saddened that someone I knew passed  away, but, did I really know him anymore?

I think my current life with baron_steffan has pretty much over shadowed the past.  And for that I'm very grateful.
Thanks for listening!

 So, I've noticed that it's been over 2 years since I've posted... Hm!
Well, I started on LJ to keep up with my far flung Friends, and most of them moved to FaceBook. So for a while I abandoned LJ, but I'm back!
 
For the past 2 1/2 years I've been unemployed, taking temp jobs when they came up, but I haven't been idle.
I have my own Jewelry Company: ByWater Craft & Kenning. I've been SO inspired by my SCA career  that I started making chain-maille jewelry. Also wire wrapped pendants & bracelets.  Some of this can be seen at www.bywatercraftandkenning.com. I'm calling it a business, because I'm treating it like one. Right now things are slow, but  with the next 3 shows coming up, BCK, should become a self sustaining hobby. That's my primary goal THIS year. Two other goals that I've already met this past year was to sell at a Boutique at the local mall, and to sell at Pennsic.

I may not be able to quit my day gig.... oh, wait, this IS my day gig.... :)
Wish me luck!!

I don't post much, but this is worthy of it.....

Yesterday I had a plan. It started with going to my Outsource Development agency's "Job Search Work Team" or as baron_steffan calls it Unemployed Anonymous, Visit Master El, Go to AT&T to get them to fix my phone issues, ( this should have been a previous rant) get gas ($3.89!!) go home and start to pack for Pennsic.

Went to my meeting, checked in with El, but he was going to be in dialysis for a 4 hour stint. Re-routed to AT&T. They fixed ALL my phone issues, and gave me tips on how to avoid them in the future.... :)!! Got in my car and it went  wrrr, wrr,rrrr, rr, tried it again, and nothing, I mean nothing... crickets chirping nothing.

Called AAA on my newly fixed phone, they said "within 45 minutes", So I had time to call AT&T Customer service to clear up a billing error, and who shows up, Mr AAA !! within 10 minutes. He told me it was the starter... go figure?

Needed to be towed, my Hyundai place is on the other side of RI, not too bad but there is this BAY in the way... I called them ahead of time, and they took me in as an emergency  service call, which was good because I had no way of getting home. They had the parts. They fixed the car. They were billing me when the storm hit and the lights went out, so did the computer system, and most of their brains.... They didn't tell me. They forgot to tell me. I had accepted that I was shoved into their already booked day, but I realized that I had been there for  almost 4 hours, when I looked out the window, and noticed that my car was in the pick up area. I asked... "OH right! We were billing you when the storm hit, Sorry!"

Almost didn't make it back to the $3.89 gas, because I was low, and remember? I was heading there after AT&T..
Rained on & off for much of the day, and I didn't pack or visit Master EL.

S-I-G-H

I am a A Moon Dragon!
Hey, I took the http://dragonhame.com online Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am a Moon Dragon on the inside.
In the war between good and evil, a Moon Dragon tends to walk the fine line of Neutrality....
When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon is a risk taker and answers to no one....
As far as magical tendancies, Your inner dragon has the ability to conquer the world of magic, but it will not be easy....
During combat situations, whether by spells or by claw, your inner dragon will do whatever it takes to get the job done....
'
The moon Dragon is an especially large Dragon, but beautiful and graceful. It makes it's home in mountainous regions, often picking a large cavern to be it's lair.'
Moon Dragons are nocturnal in nature, only coming out at night. They silently fly through the nighttime sky, hunting deer, antelope or other woodland creatures. The Moon Dragon has a particularly long lifespan even amongst dragonkind. Some Moon Dragons have been known to live for several millennia, making it one of the longest lived creatures in existence. http://Dragonhame.Com

So, ok, this was fun.. :)
Having an unfocused day actually,....

Yes, I know its the 3rd... but it wasn't exactly the most Joyous of May Days this time around.
Got the word that Master EL was rushed to the Hospital overnight, and the scramble began.

Trying to find his blood relatives, dealing with the land lord, the rent, the apartment, and trying to coordinate people who want to help.
And amazingly enough, it all happened, or at least a plan was formulated by all concerned, and will go into action in due course.

The SCA: What an amazing group of people we are. I can't thank you all enough, for pulling together on Master El's behalf.

    Ok, so, I'm really convinced that  I have SADS. For the past 2 or 3 days I've been cranky, unfocused and mildly depressed.  Yesterday I was out  driving , when the sun broke through, and there was a rainbow (one of my most favorite good omens) and I almost immediately felt better. Today is SO much different. The Sun is out, I got to take my morning walk and I'm waiting on a call to find out why COBRA isn't paying my claims... I feel GOOD, despite  the stuff that went down last week see baron_steffan post on the loss of our oldest kitty.
    Going to work on Jewelry stuff & annoying goverment controlled stuff like COBRA today. Over all, life is good.
