A Quiet Week

It's been a quiet week in Hufflepuff House for me.

I was excited to hear the we won the Quidditich game on Saturday! I stopped by the Pitch when I had a break in the day, thinking I could at least cheer for Hufflepuff, but it was already over. I hope I can do as well when I play the next needles are all warmed up and ready to go.

I wasn't at the match because I was helping out at an SCA event, sort of a fancy-dress party for Muggles. One of my knitting friends devised most of the recipes, and it was a great meal. We had ham pie, and bread pudding, and all sorts of other treats. Unfortunately, we also had a whole bunch of rain, so it wasn't as long or as fun a day as we would have liked. The good part of that is that we've spent several days this week enjoying leftovers from the lunch.

I had another bit of good news - I have a job for the fall. I'll be teaching History of Sport at a local college. No Quidditch, though - this is strictly a Muggle program. I have a lot to learn by then!

The rest of the week has been a little less fun. An accident while playing with the dogs left me sort of beat up, and I had to see a Muggle doctor instead of Madam Pomfrey. So I had to get "shots," and have pills to take - if you don't know the details of Muggle medicine, trust me, you don't want to! But I'm healing nicely, I hope.

Now I'm just trying to get some knitting finished. Tomorrow we go to celebrate a friend's upcoming wedding, and I need to conjure up an appropriate gift by then. We're about to get some bad thunderstorms, so I hope the power doesn't go out, because I need the light for knitting.

I miss being with the SCA. Before I was married I had lots of fun. I was involved while overseas. I can't find any of my paperwork any more. We enjoy Renaissance fairs now. Wish we could be more involved with SCA, though. The food looks scrumpy!
