We are home from the Folk Festival and it was an amazing experience. The drive was spectacular with great weather in both directions. We had pit stops in Revelstoke, Golden and Banff and enjoyed them thoroughly.
The Festival was physically rigorous with long work days, moquitos that were the size of small cars and a definite lack of sleep prevailing. But on the plus side, we met the most amazing people.
I only got to spin on the first day of the show. It was logistically difficult to spin as the ground wasn’t level for more than a square foot and it was hot—-spinning in the heat was a new experience for me —-blek. Lots of knitting happened though, new designs started seeping into my mind and well how can you not be inspired when you are in such a great space?
There was no time to put together a meal, so it was a lot of late night grazing. Edmonton has awesome places to eat. Boun Thai had us going back more than once and we found a Lebanese restaurant that was insanely wonderful. With that being said, it was nice to get home to our first home cooked meal in a week.
There are so many more shows on the books this year. It’s going to be my toughest production schedule yet—but this is thrilling to me. I have the full support to make this happen which makes me blessed and even more motivated.
I took a half day off this morning to sleep in and cuddle with the kitties, but the knitting has my full attention as well as catching up on the Torchwood and True Blood episodes I missed while out of town. I’m sure it wouldn’t take much convincing to get Kristen into another Dr. Who marathon at the studio…..
