Heroes of the Emerald Vale

And, lo, there came a day when the valiant Lady Lionheart knew that her next adventure would require the aid of her most trusted cohort. So she sent word far and wide, for who could know where in the known world her ally wandered?

At last the message found its way, and at once brave Sir Sharksbane ended his peregrinations to meet his oldest companion.

Their reunion was joyous for as they looked each other full in the face, they recalled many a campaign past where their staunch friendship oft saved the day.

It did not take long for the two to agree to set forth together.

Though the journey was arduous, they did not lose spirit. On foot, they traversed the land, marveling at bounty of nature around them and the many wild and monstrous animals in their path.

Still, they could not persevere unmounted for even their travel-hardened limbs at long last grew weary. With luck, they found an able squire to tend to their dusty armor...

... and an experienced groom whose stabled creatures would gladly bear their weight. Onward to the next part of the journey!

In the Park

We spent a peaceful Columbus Day in Arlington with my mom, basking in the most glorious late-summer weather by passing as much time outside as possible. What a lovely way to end an otherwise very wet and overcast season.

I realized recently that summers are probably ipso facto less crafty. Every available second is dedicated to the outdoors, and there is no energy left at the end of running, jumping, climbing days. But of course, nature provides for those who think on their feet. Lara and I did a little weaving with grass and sticks in between bursts of action and it was a wonderful stolen moment. I need to try to remember to keep looking for the make-able all around.
