So far, War has been going very well. Our new shower is wonderful and I can't express how nice a hot shower is first thing in the morning. Most of our folks have arrived, with a new lady due today and another couple due tomorrow. The camp is working, with lots of the great food we've become known for.
On Sunday, my husband & I went to the opening ceremony, where all the Kings and Queens gather and declare war. It was hot and the sun's glare was harsh, but it was worth it to see all the armies marching in. It was followed by a tournement in which 10 ledgendary champions fought. Those men were incredibly inspiring. These were men who formed the SCA and made it what it is today. I felt as if I were watching history being made and yes, I cried.
I'm in town today to catch up with the real world and do some work. Book launches wait for no man or war. When I get back to camp, I'm going to support one of my friends as she teaches a new class, and then tonight we're going to be out partying in the bog!
