I haven’t been writing here for a little more than two weeks (except of my list yesterday, sure), which is kind of a record, I think. I’m always a little sad when one of the blogs I read daily – about forty when I last counted – hasn’t updated for two weeks or more.
After all, like everyone to neglect their blogs, I had my reasons. But instead of telling you the not-so-exciting stories of what I did during the last weeks, I’d rather tell you what I’m up to in the upcoming few!
First of all, there is a Coppelius concert coming up in December. I don’t know what exactly to wear, and I fear I’ll have to sew something new. Maybe I can relate this project somehow to my new Steampunk clothing, which is also something you might read more about here soon.
Second, I’m re-organizing my sports stuff. As I’m in advanced training now, it’s time to get some kind of order into that mess of boxing gloves, trainers and fighting trousers! Plus, I definitely need a bag for my canes. Well there goes another hand full of sewing projects. At the moment, sadly, I’m kind of not allowed to go to training due to another sickness – again. But I decided to go to watch training, at least on Wednesday at Savate. It is incredibly salutary to watch the older ones at the assaut – no, that’s not a typo but the french term for our kind of combat in both Canne de Combat and Savate – and that’s something you really can’t do while being in an assaut yourself. So maybe I can learn something even if I’m not able to go into combat myself this week.
I’m also being some kind of creative with words – due to NaNoWriMo, but I think I’ll dedicate another post to that – and pencils as I’m trying to revive my beloved Splinterworld project.
As a little life update I can tell you that we’ve got two wonderful new girls here living with us after Abigail and Kajal, Bambi’s rabbits, moved back to his sister. They are small, fluffy and incredibly sweet and go by the names Emma and Feline.
Oh, and the River Lahn is bursting its banks again thanks to the rain during the last week. Maybe it will still be as wild and fast as it was yesterday when I’m going for a walk tomorrow so I can take some pictures.
And last but not least, no, I didn’t forget about the give-away. I’ll soon reveal my plans concerning the wonderful descriptions I got and of course, I will let you read these descriptions, too.
