What a weekend. I'm still achy, but K&Q Rapier was fantastic. So much fencing! (Possibly overdid it a bit on the arm, but it'll grow back...) So wonderful to see (and stab) so many friends! There were 4 in my round robin pool that were also in it last year... oh well. I won 4, lost 5. Should have won a few I didn't, but that will get better. Christian tried on the Tuesday before to try and fix my TourneyBrain, and I think it helped a bit.

From my checklist, I did finish the laundry, did the tweaks to the scroll, and... that's it. Armor shirt and gorget repair are put off, again. Perhaps done before Tourney O' Love next weekend. I even had an extra day; mom called Thursday night and said, "Don't come down. Your dad has the flu". OK by me not getting sick, thank you mom! Fortunately was able to finagle crash space with [livejournal.com profile] elmer42 and [livejournal.com profile] dervishspin on Saturday night. Thank you thank you thank you. After-party at Camelot was lovely too. Got puppy time with Uno. Happy.

Fenced lots, schemes were schemed, so excited and happy for [livejournal.com profile] isabel_london, my newest Silver Rapier Sister! Congrats to new King's Champion [livejournal.com profile] nomadmwe, and JP, Queen's Champion. Court was good, lots of AoAs (both in the AM and PM courts), [livejournal.com profile] lanome's Laureling was wonderful, and I still didn't sit down enough. Took a gazillion photos, though. (please feel free to share)

I figured too, that since it was only another hour south of where I already was, I would make my (what is turning out to be annual) pilgrimage to Logee's Greenhouse. Had a coupon for basically a free plant, so why not? Was wonderful, and exactly what I needed. Warm, humid, full of good smells and flowers, and a kitty. Came home with some new treasures; 3 new hoya, a kalanchoe with little orange bellflowers, and a pink shrimp plant. New pots for them tonight!

Emotional weekend. Said goodbye to Xavier, will be too long till we meet again in person. Still not quite real. Won't be, I don't think, until I go up to Montreal in March, and am staying with other friends... Much longer drive to fence with him now. So glad we had some good, good fights on Saturday. Sigh.
