Where've I Been??

Witching About

Not sure what happened to Friday, except I did go get grain. But once the weekend it, forget it.

I spent both Saturday and the bulk of today playing Jenny the Witch at the farm market reading my story of Reggie Cat over and over to restless, OK, and attentive children in between a professional clown with all kinds of magic tricks.

When I wasn't "on stage" I was hiking around the grounds getting my picture taken over and over with kids. Today I took my raccoon puppet--Sven Bobby--and my skunk puppet--Hunkley--with me and they were both a hit. The funniest part was how many times people there actually thought they were real. The kids, OK, I could see that, but there were a lot of adults too completely taken in by my realistic furry hand puppets.

Now photo albums throughout the area will feature Jenny Witch, Sven Bobby, Hunkley and dozens of cute little kids completely caught up in the fantasy.

I am totally exhausted. Last night, after a day a the farm, I came home, changed into civilian clothes and went to dinner with my good friends Shelley, George and their son Todd. Loved it, but it was about an hour's drive each way. When I got home, I felt I had to create some illustrations for my story, so I ended up creating a PowerPoint...till about 2 AM.

Got up for church, sang in the choir (little bit of a solo part) raced home, headed back out the farm for Day 2, and just got home a bit ago to feed the Boys and the kitties and now crash for the night. And crash I shall. I am totally exhausted.

Looks like the Boys had the weekend off. I could not have ridden if someone had paid me. I haven't any energy left at all.

Tired but happy....Witch Jenny signing off from Follywoods.

  1. Sounds like a fun weekend! You must post pictures of Sven Bobby and Hunkley. I've always loved puppets, and I'm dying to see the puppets that fooled adults!

  3. You certainly deserve a good long rest after all that activity. It sounds like a lot of fun and the kids will remember your puppets and the witch lady for a long time. I'm sure you made a lot of little ones happy.

  4. Wow - that does sound busy! And fun too in an exhausting way. I was wondering where you'd gotten to - thanks for letting us know.

  5. I bet you are exhausted ^-^

    It is great to do something for teh community and the kids. As I grow older, I realise how important it is to "give/participate" in to human society.
