Collected joys  
In news of my aunt, from my mom via email this morning:

"The surgeon proclaimed E's surgery as "miraculous"! It went just as planned.
Now there is renewed hope that she may be able to recover to some point. I'm so relieved. I'll keep you informed. Thanks for your help & thoughts."

Thank you for all those who offered their thoughts and prayers. I'm not a particularly religious girl, but I do believe in the power of such things.


On the Jara list, someone asked for assistance sewing a "standard" rapier kit. You know, just a linen shirt and doublet. *grin* Huzzah for the defeat of Evil Trigger! The One True Way of Linen will soon take over the world!


I got an email from some ladies in Glenn Abhann who are looking to put together a Garb Wars/Golden Seamstress/Griffin's Needle Challenge sort of event and found my webpage/blog. Of course I was more than willing to share the crack and send them the info I had.

They don't have a date yet, but assuming it doesn't conflict badly with something else, anyone interested in a road trip? :)


Yesterday, at  lunch, I was thinking about life and stuff and suddenly had the undeniable urge to reread Walden. Thanks to my iPhone and Project Gutenberg, 45 seconds later I was.

I <3 my phone. I <3 teh intarwebz.


This morning I got an email on the NS Hall about an A&S Throw Down to be held March 28, 2009 in the Shire of Trewint at their Ides of March Event. The idea is you pony up $10 and enter your very bestest A&S project in a participant-judged winner-take-all competition. While I appreciate the squishiness of less intimidating A&S formats, I do believe in recognizing and rewarding excellence. (I may also be a bit on the competitive side.) I suspect this will draw some really amazing pieces by some of Northshield's best artisans (because some of them are pretty competitive too) and be an A&S display to remember.

Trewint's a good hike from Jara. I think I may go anyway.


And last, but by no means least, I am FINALLY getting some help at work! Starting September 8th, I will have a pharmacy minion to do my bidd... er... coworker to work with. One of the best parts is that she is interested in having Mondays off and so will work Tuesday through Friday and I can change my schedule to Monday through Thursday. This means no more staying up to obscene hours on Wednesday night at social, but it DOES mean a three day weekend pretty much every week. YAY! Even better, it means that something other than the bare essentials will be getting done at work. I have been keeping up with the patient profiles, the formulary development, the drug information questions, the prior authorizations, the mandatory federal reporting and the six dozen other necessary functions, but I have been coming home absolutely wrecked and still have not even been able to work on the special projects that would help address the financial, legal, and safety aspects of drug use that really are becoming somewhat urgent. (Shockingly, I've just not been able to keep up with ALL the aspects of FOUR peoples' jobs.) But soon, I will have help again and hopefully life will get a little less insane and my non-work motivation levels will start to rebound.

You've all been warned. ;)

There's been talk about holding a Known-World Costuming Symposium here in Mynydd Seren. If this idea gets rolling, would you be interested in participating?

Sure. I autocratted that in 2006, so if they are looking for ideas/planning tips, I'd be more than happy to help with that too.

You're just getting sick of driving up to Northshield so you're holding events to bring us down there....
teffanteffan on August 28th, 2008 07:40 pm (UTC)
YAY all around!!!

Minions are good.

I understand the getting help at work thing..hopefully your minion will prove more helpful than my lump of an engineer has...

"Trewint's a good hike from Jara. I think I may go anyway."

We are likely to be there. We were specially invited to be there because the person running the challenge is...well...clear in explaining what she wants. *grin* We can talk when it gets closer.

Sounds like a plan. :)

Yay! Things are looking good for you :-) Glad your aunt's doing better!

Well, she survived the surgery. She's still in the ICU.
