Placeholder for Labor Day

We spent all day Sunday at the Pennsylvania Renfaire. Had a lovely time -- saw jousting, falconry, Don Juan and Miguel, sultry sirens, the royal hounds, the mud show, lots of wandering minstrels and performers -- but it was extremely hot and humid, we spent a lot of time in the sun, and I have the worst migraine I've had in years. I feel like this:

Except that the dog can pant and I can't; I drank a huge amount of water over the course of the day, at least three large bottles, and I'm still utterly wiped out. On Monday we are meeting dementordelta at the Maryland Renaissance Festival, so we can take older son to both faires before his classes start; therefore I must go collapse. Happy Labor Day!
