Quiet weeks are nice, but not eventing is not. 😦 Investiture must have been a blast from the sound of things.

House Capuchin Shield2Things kept on being made all week. Various projects got finished. The foxglove harvest happened. Materials that had dived into strange places got pulled back out. Cheese happened.

…and we have a new Prince and Princess of the Summits. Their Alpine Highesses, Durin and Cerridwen, and the previous Prince Tjorkill and Princess Alina to either side.

…and then Seamus, the inimitable Sea Moose, about Investiture…. “Home safe from a great Investiture. Any event where I get to threaten poison is a win. Thank you Corvaria.
Anja said, “Sounds like a story…”
and Seamus replied, “I, Seamus O’Caellaigh, Alpine Scholar, to attest and affirm that Ceridwin is the true and rightful heir. Any that think otherwise, *Throw Gauntlet* should pick up this Gauntlet, BUT be warned, my weapon is knowledge. I know more poisons than you, and I will not be making you an Antidote!” (swiped from Facebook with Seamus’ permission)

…and the balls were slimy and wet, so they got pull out of the whey

Early Week

We heard from Gudrun and Jay early in the week and Willow and Kaleb came in to discuss what all’s been going on with House stuff while they were busy with the school year. Willow is offering to pick up some of the Newport members on Sundays so they can make it to House meetings. Loren was busily making more needles and Anja more pincushions. The pictures from the week before prompted requests for some specific ones by various people. 🙂

A note went up on Facebook about Amy’s copious quantities of mug tags from the largesse coordinator for Their Alpine Highnesses,  Alicia Van De Kop, “Mug tags! House Capuchin donated so many and they are so clever!”

…and she’s done another hat.

The stick horses went to His Alpine Highness on Tuesday. The sun was too bright….

Cheese and Wine Workshop – So the mozzarella experiment got tried. It took awhile to collect the tools, but once we got started it went pretty fast. It didn’t end up with the right texture, though. 😦 It took about 2 hours, start to finish, counting letting the whey cool enough to put it in the fridge. Best guess on the texture probably is that the cheese didn’t get/stay hot enough to stretch and something happened also with the curdling too soon. Bad measurement?

Sewing Time – Thursday – Anja got her gift thingie done and worked on a couple of pincushions. One of Loren’s needles went into the gift thingie. Anja did some more cutting out and embroidery Thursday evening and Friday.

Sewing Time – Saturday …turned into talking to one possible new person and then a lot of cutting out of pieces for pincushions which you can see starting to be sewn below. Iow, nothing got finished on Saturday. ….other than pincushion filling….

Herb Bunch – During the early week it was time to get the foxglove harvested.

Project Day – Amor has been busy up in Eskalya. He’s mostly working on learning how to make arrowheads. Loren got a Father’s Day prezzie that he’s going to start playing with. He sat down with some plates and bowls that needed sanding and Anja had a pincushion that she’d been getting ready over the last couple of days.
