This Week is the Providential History Festival

This week is the Providential History Festival. PHF involves, among other things, packing meals for four days; showering in outdoor temperatures; calling a dance with a live band; meeting old and new friends; exhaustion.

I have a cold. Yesterday, Sept. 11th, I stayed home from church, blew my nose, and watched videos of the terrorist attacks that ten years ago changed America. After ten years, it was good to be reminded of what happened that day.

Sewing is put on hold until after the event. After the event we're planning to relax with good friends for a day before getting back into the ruotine. I'm looking forward to starting a new dance session with new dances and dancers, and the upcoming challenge of sewing historical clothing for my brothers.

Did you do any presentations at PHF, or just the dance?

I just did the dance. Everyone else in the family did presentations, and somehow that wore me out anyway. Maybe next year if I do end up doing something it will be less exhausting!

I wish I could be there! How did it go?
