Extra things happened this week. Maybe we’re starting to settle into “winter”? It doesn’t feel like it with no feasts…. kinda like there was no summer because there were no tourneys.
We have a lot of plant tending to do this week and some cookery. We’ll be glad when we can get in-person things going again.
All meetings are on hold for the moment, although Project Day and the Monthly Potluck are being held in the Virtual Realm. We’re also doing mini-potlucks, just Anja & Loren and one other “pod” at a time. Let us know if you’re interested!
- Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
- Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm

Project Day – Loren and Anja spent most of the day cooking and working on cleaning up from cooking. 🙂 We started with doing up a batch of custard tarts and some nibbles from the left-over dough. Later Anja was doing chicken and dumplings with pekanky, which are a period-style Czech dumpling.
Arlys said she forgot about project day and Rosamonde was cleaning, but planning a cake for later.
Estella wrote – “My project today. Eating the rest of the Thanksgiving salmon [frozen from CHILE!!]. Simple “I’m hungry NOW” style~ using copper-clad stainless fish pan that neighbor Helen left to me, gently saute in butter, add a little lemon juice >> onto seasoned rice. My favourite knife is at least 50 years old, and was made by my friend, Helen, who passed away the day Hillary lost the election. The cup is an old Downtown-Deb Dead-Air KLCC cup. I’ve used it every morning I’ve been home for over 20 years.”
Some veg ends got planted late. Isabeau says she was running around all day.

…and a bonus. Estella and I love this one… Here’s a 17th century Moravian Carol that feels older because of the mode it’s written in. It’s a long story about the “Miracle of the Waters”. Mary and Elizabeth meet on the snowy path to the church. Elizabeth scolds Mary, that she shouldn’t be stressing herself when she’s so close to giving birth. She helps her with the birth with John close by, and then they go to bathe the child and all the springs are frozen. It isn’t until Mary goes to the spring herself that the waters suddenly thaw and according to the story, they run clear to this day, even in the worst weather. The illustrations are by Josef Lada, a famous Czech artist of this past century. (Yes, Stella, this doesn’t match up with the lyrics… it’s the older version of the story.)
…and maybe this will come through… Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as a Gregorian Chant!
