Inspiration

Yesterday we went to Maker's Faire in Carolingia, which was an event that I hadn't originally planned to attend.  But then I got an assignment for an award document for jdulac that I just couldn't turn down - who else would appreciate what I'm trying to do with making my documents as authentic as possible?  (Three weeks of research, and I had to learn a new script.  But I also learned a lot about abbreviations and punctuation (that ended up being completely useless for this project.))  It turned out to be a good day - I got to spend a bunch of time with vynehorn, and learned basic fingerloop braiding.  Sounds like a win to me.

To the point though, Charlotte found her inspiration yesterday.  During court, a girl not that much older than she is received a Tyger's Cub for all the kitchen work she does at events.  Charlotte was paying rapt attention - and then turned to me and said "Mommy, I want to learn to cook in the kitchen at events."  :-)  That's my girl - goal oriented.

Since she's pretty much only just now tall enough for that to be practical, we'll give it a try.  I told her that she could practice by helping with the dishes at home.

Once she gets over her abject fear of me...
She's welcome to help in in my kitchens, whatever role you feel she could fill :-)

It's a timing thing. We tend to run into you early on before she's "settled in" at events. But I'll happily take you up on that - I want her to be a *productive* member of the SCA!

I'm good at organizing tasks for small hands in my kitchen. Next time I do a feast, she's welcome in mine. I'm sure VR will be happy to work with her.

Ah - there's a thought! I'm pretty sure she'd be happy to work with Auntie Isabeau.

Seriously - you could hear the gears going "whir, click" as she watched that.

Awww. :-) See, that's what makes it worth doing.

Did you notice that they're cranes? :-D
