Story Swap #3

The Virginia Storytelling Alliance had a story swap in the early evening. It was nice to see a lot of folks who I don't see very often (because some of them live fairly far from me, aside from the whole pandemic thing) and there was an interesting mix of stories. It was definitely skewed towards holiday memories, which isn't surprising this close to Christmas. Joan had a lovely piece about decorating the tree, Donna reflects on presents, Annette sang a song for St. Lucia Day, and Lynn had a very charming piece involving sheep for a church pageant. I told a story about celebrating survival. My favorite of the evening was a French-Canadian folktale that Jane told.

After it was over, I played Code Names, which was interesting for having a new player tonight. I may not be getting much household stuff done, but I am certainly managing lots of entertainment.
