Hmmm. Sorry I have been radio silent. COVID sheltering in place I forgot to manage and maintain my websites. Starting on March 15th I stopped socializing in person with everyone leaving one of the Canton Practice’s early that day. At home I have worked on getting my woodshop de-winterized, organize the garage, working on mundane woodworking project replacing boards on a picnic table (tabletop and the seats), determined the cause of why the Mischief and Shenanigans’ Viking Tent is not square, and started making a Viking chair for myself (which will be my first-period chair). So woodworking is slowly going, since my woodshop has become slightly abandoned due to an Animal Crossing New Horizons habit that I seemed to have developed in March (it has been cold too!). 0:)
Hello All! I took some time this month to practice my chainmail skills. I am currently preparing for Defending the Gate and am looking forward to a great event there.
…and this is 2020!
Sara here. Sorry, I disappeared from my online websites. I had a death in the family in November dealing with that, the holiday and construction work, I lost track of time.
I have been busy preparing for the new year and ensuring MOLs have what they need for the year to come. I hope to see you all soon at Winter University!
This month threw me for a curveball with a death in my family. Thank you to my Kingdom Deputies for volunteering to step in to handle any issues, which I saw no issues pop up.
Thank you to the Giglsworth Academy of Wigglesworth family for taking care of My Baronage for Their Court.
Next up planning for Unevent meetings!
October flew by, and I am busy prepping for Fall Crown Tournament.
I have started relearning woodworking and making some small wood projects including stuff for Shenanigans and Mischief, some of it will be making first event appearance at Crown. Until November!
I am busy preparing for Stierbach Baronial Birthday. Giglswick of Wigglesworth (the actual location) will be busy in real life for about the next month. So I will be assisting Janna. Plans are in the works for Fall Crown Tournament’s Activities. Which I still need more MOLs.
I hope all is well with you.
Mistress Blitha and Lord Allan of Wolfhou,
Before I forget; I met Justin, the thatcher of speed, the other day and he sends his greetings. There is much to consider before making such a decision, so none has been made as of yet.
The Giglsworth Academy of Wiggleswort’s Halls are empty, cold, and lacking in the sound of laughter. Thankfully the halls are staying dry. I have heard of storms pending on your horizon and I hope all in the encampment stay dry.
I have heard the news that Lord Kelvin and his peer Mistress Garcia are working hard to ensure everyone is appropriately fed. I look forward to hearing more about their delightful meals when you return.
Shenanigans and I have been keeping each other company and he has helped monitor the lands of Sudentorre and Stierbach with the Gigglesworth fleet of flying monkeys. They report that your wolf pack is well fed and doing a great job doing their duty protecting their assigned lands and herds. Not one protected animal has been lost under their watch.
Not much else to report on the home front. I hope that you are in good health, safe, that the markets haven’t pillaged your wallets too much, and your arrows and atlatl darts fly true.
Please send my greetings and love to your family.
Greetings to Traveling Atlantian Ministers of the Lists,
I have heard of a great trial and possibly war coming to our Society within the Kingdom of Aethelmearc’s lands. I hope that you all remain safe during these trying times and able to assist our fighters as needed.
You may have previously seen me call you MOLs my Rock/Stars. Your strength and work ethic has provided me with a foundation that is as strong as the densest rock. The way you all shine while working reminds me of the brightest stars twinkling in the heavens. Both of which Inspires me to be a better servant to the dream and provide you with the support that you all may need.
The List field’s of Atlantia are empty as our colleagues have gone to aid our brethren or are maintaining Their Majesty’s Lands within Atlantia. Know that I am with you in spirit and hope for everyone’s safe return.
May peace come swiftly and our fighter’s fight justly.
My many thanks to you MOLs.
Lady Sara van Eerde
Atlantia’s Kingdom Minister of the List

Pennsic War XLVIII
Sara here…July is here and two members of our household are preparing for Pennsic (sadly not I). One of which is taking our mascot Mischief with them to Peace week of Pennsic. So I am sewing him garb as Jedi Robes do not qualify as period Garb. So far his kilt, sporran, and a Viking apron dress (he is a monkey) and a black apron to match mine are done.
Monkey sized Kasode, Hakuma, Ottoman, underdress are all up next!
Even though I am not going, the Pennsic panic has arrived!
I have been busy getting up to speed with my duties as KMOL and getting ready for Defending the Gate. All is well.
