Just successfully wrapped up a summer internship with a video conference and a lovely presentation
Acquired a book on the Bayeux Tapestry for much cheaper than we found on Amazon + it has great illustrations of the entire piece, so that's another step closer to making our own tapestry~
Civil War reenacting with the boyfriend, his dad, and a friend this weekend (If anyone else happens to be going to Hale Farm this weekend, I'll be the awkward girl with the homemade white shirt and brownish-patterned skirt, hehe) so I'll get lots more time to work on lace ^_^
Also, for the book, I found it at Half Price Books while I was waiting for them to make an offer on a load of books my boyfriend decided he didn't need any more. They didn't offer much, but it was more than the cost of what I found. I think that this was the first time I ever came out ahead monetarily in that store xD And yes, I did have the lad's permission to buy it with the money. It was intended to go towards the hard copy we found on Amazon, but when one finds a copy at a fraction of the price...
That's awesome! I love Civil War reenactments. There was one I went to where I went up to a lady opening pea pods that were for her family, and I didn't believe that they were real. Her answer was "Of course they're real! How else would I be able to feed my family?!" Looking back, I applaud her.
On a different note, My boyfriend and I, along with a good friend of mine and her boyfriend, have decided that for the fall of 2017 we will be going to Japan!! I'm so excited! It seems like it's gonna be so doable. So if anyone has been there or has any pointers at all, please let me know. Also, if you could give me any cool places that I would want to visit, that'd be cool too.
