We’ll be camping nearby and attending both days.
I am travelling to Colorado (my home state) this week. I am going to record a few snippets while away but not a full podcast. I will be looking for some WIPs abroad to bring back with me too.
I used Shreddies because that’s all I could find in our grocery store here, and it turned out just as well!

Dyeing Easter eggs is a tradition for me, but where are all the white eggs? There aren’t any in the supermarket here so what’s a girl to do?
These are eggs from a few years back
(27:48) Moment of Drama
Sonnet LVII (57)
Being your slave what should I do but tend
Upon the hours, and times of your desire?
I have no precious time at all to spend;
Nor services to do, till you require.
Nor dare I chide the world without end hour,
Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,
Nor think the bitterness of absence sour,
When you have bid your servant once adieu;
Nor dare I question with my jealous thought
Where you may be, or your affairs suppose,
But, like a sad slave, stay and think of nought
Save, where you are, how happy you make those.
So true a fool is love, that in your will,
Though you do anything, he thinks no ill.
