To Valhalla

Hi Folks-

A surprisingly sunny weekend. Peter and I traveled more than usual.

My brother-in-law Mark Feldman passed away last fall. He is missed in so many ways but this weekend Peter and I had the honor of attending his viking send off. Mark and my sister Maggie were/are very involved in Norseland, a viking re-enactment group except it’s more like they live it than re-enact it. The tents are authentic, the households are set up, every one is in period garb (me, Peter and Chelsea too). You bring your period feast gear with you to the feast and you bring your (raucous, loud and earnest) love to the ceremony. His fellow vikings built him a boat, carved him a dragon’s head, painted a sail, serenaded him with a flute and their voices and toasted him with Irish Whiskey. I think he would have liked it 🙂

We then sauntered off to Lake Dunmore to hang with Peter’s brother Tony, his girl Cheryl and cousin Ted. Fun too. At the beginning of the weekend I threw some swordfish steaks in with fresh thyme and olive oil and packed them in ice. They traveled well and when folks seemed a bit stumped about the rest of the meal that turned out alright too. Sandwich and snack material morphed into a salad. Make the best salad you can think of and leave out the greens, toss in a good dressing and there you have it.

So we are tanner and more relaxed, very happy on our “diet”, (give me three more weeks and I don’t think we will refer to it that way anymore).

Ready to jump in and very ready for the wine tasting, still room, details here Wine tasting.
