House Capuchin has been caught up in real life over the last couple of months. Anja and Loren are still in the process of moving. Some of our members are caught up in getting ready for the summer tourist season out here. The rest of us are taking a little bit of a breather catching up on personal stuff.
Marcus, our Pater Familias, is the new Arts & Sciences Champion of Tymberhavene! Ave, Pater! ….we’re going to tease him forever, though, about not getting the memo that said you’re not supposed to poison your judges! No, don’t ask me, as him….. <snicker> (Photo by Luciana)
Loren’s Grail necklace
Loren was award the Grail of the Summits (green) at June Investiture. He wasn’t there so Anja accepted it for him and then our Pater made a ceremony of it for him at Her (then) Highness’ request at our Project Day.
Both Anja and Marcus were given Barberries for personal service to Her Highness toward the end of Vesta’s reign.
Rowan has a new Great Wheel that made an appearance at Investiture. Loren is making progress on sanding the pile of small wooden animals. Sabrina has made a pile of stitched books. Gudrun has done quite a lot of research into Chinese costume. Anja is getting places on her pincushion project. Marcus has finished the coils for the Latgallian Headdress and Anja has most of the non-metal pieces collected. All that’s left are the flat pieces for between the coils. A stack of sample swatches were donated to the House and those are rapidly becoming pouches and pincushions.

We have three new members: Jay, Stella and Luciana. Jay is interested in learning to make armor and fight as is Luciana, who just picked a name in the last couple of days! Luciana is also into arts and crafts and it starting a largesse project of making ankle bracelets. Stella helped Anja move quite a bit of her herb garden over the last month. All three are interested in cookery, so Anja is very happy.

Marcus and Anja went to Hocktide in Glyn Dwyn where Sadb was competing. Anja also taught at the event. They and Rowan attended June Investiture and participated in the A&S display. This past weekend Marcus and Anja went to War in the Trees, Marcus competing in the Championship and Anja teaching again.
For our potluck Jay and Anja make Lazer/Silphium Chicken, a recipe from Apicius that used a period fake for an extinct plant! He also helped prep and put away for freezing a lot of one of Anja’s fennel plants that will go into sausage over the rest of the year. The rest of the fare was not so exotic, but tasty: cheeses, breads, and a hot sausage. Anja also tried another fennel dish of Fennel root and stems in wine and honey and it failed, miserably, cooking for over 2 hours and scorching without ever softening enough to eat! 🙂
This was a busy month!
>>>>>>> Their Highnesses, An Tir, Crown Prince Kjartan Daegarson and Crown Princess Sha’ya Kjartanskona at June Investiture Yes, that’s Anja between them. She was playing for Vesta and Turk’s last court! >>>>>???????>>>>>>
We’re not going to be getting to a lot of events over the summer, although Anja is planning a couple of upcoming competitions and her Championship. Marcus and a couple of our new members are going to hit a fight practice or three over the summer, maybe more if our new fighters keep it up, and are hoping for some workshops and A&S things that coordinate with Tymberhavene’s.
