Let's play catch up... Nógrád

Shall we?
I left off a month ago, so there will be a few post that will summarize what happened over the last month, with some pictures...
Nógrád... there was an event, where we danced in renaissance... I stopped posting patly because at that event I hurt my calf.... a partial tear in one of my muscles in my calf... almost to the day a year after I did the same thing to my left leg last year, though this time I did it to the right. Just like last year, it took me about 2-3 weeks to be able to walk normally again, and I am still careful with dancing...
Still happy and careless

 Here I was in considerable pain....

Four weeks

Four weeks... this is how long I have not drank any Cova Cola.
Admittedly, I love Coke. the full sugary version.
I loved it since my childhood, even though there were times it vas scarcely available, and and can drink an insane amount of it.
I have been told many times (especially by my ex), that I am addicted. That might be so, but I ofte wondered, if I reall have an addiction.
When I stepped on the scale more than a month ago, went though the roof. Not the scale, but me.
I also had a wow, and a bet with myself. (I tried it once, giving up coke for a month, but then Chris had his accident, at the end of the third week.)
I actually started on May the first (more than 4 weeks ago), but then there was one small can in the fidge and N said it would be unnecessary temptaton.
The full 4 weeks were up by late friday night, and on thruday night I incidentally bought a can of coke. (Yes, shut up. Incidentally. How you say no to a store clerk, who was so proud that he remembered I only drink Coke? ). I had it with me on Friday night and I opened it just a few minutes before midnight.
It actually tasted strange. Now, I had a day or two of headaches at the beginning of teh four weeks, but that also could have had a million other reasons. No other withdrawal effect. No shaking hand, no feeling dizzy or sick, not even a standard attack of angry shouting. I also have not drunk anything else instead, but water. No other soft drinks, no syrups, just water, or seltzer water. Thats it. I did not died. Nor did I turn into a zombie. I have not lost much weight either.
Anyhow, I gave myself one day off, when we had an event to attend, and now back to square one. See f I can do this for another month.

I haven't given up crafts, though the emphasis shifted somewhat lately...
I do work on quite a few things, though finishing things take longer, and more time goes on between such events...
However, things do happen, so let's see the latest concert we've been at...
Honeybeast. I did not know them, however N, and Chris quite like them, so I said why not. Last week there was a free concert at the Downtown Festival, but we got there late and N is not the type to elbow his way to close to the stage, we stayed far away, which resultem me only seeing the lights... (my eyesight is getting worst at an alarming rate, but that is another post).
Last Friday they had another concert at one of my favorite concert scene. after thefree concert I reserved the judgement until I can actually SEE.. well, the songs resembling one another just a bit too much for my taste, butI quite like them, though not as much (by far) as a certan other band.
Picture time.
