We attended the annual WinterFeast this last weekend. I have to admire my husband who is willing to not only dress up in costume with me, but in a kilt! The night was great fun. We had a beautiful dinner of roasted vegetables, potatoes, Chicken Wellington, and prime rib plus dessert. It was more food than I could eat. I had never had Chicken Wellington before. I enjoyed it. The entertainment was fun. A juggler, a magician and a group of singers. I have included some pictures for you to enjoy. Melanie was on a choir trip to Minneapolis but she was able to show up for the last 1/2 hour. Now our Renfest season gets underway. We have trainings, performances and meetings right up until our festival the first weekend in June.

Reading...avid or addicted?

As an avid reader, (I say avid, Paul says addicted), I am always looking for a good book. When I finish a series, I always feel a panic sweep over me wondering what I will read next. So, I am all for sharing. Many of my friends and relatives belong to which allows us to share what we are reading and what we have read. It also allows one to rate and review. It is a great resource for finding what to read next. I just finished one of the best series I have ever read...The Nine Kingdoms Series. I read all three is 6 days. Please share your favorite books with me!
