March Ides and weekend past

The term "Ides" comes from the earliest Roman calendar, which is said to have been devised by Romulus, the mythical founder of Rome.  The Roman calendar organized it's months around three days, each of which served as a reference point for counting the other days:

•Kalends (1st day of the month)
•Nones (the 7th day in March, May, July, and October; the 5th in the other months)
•Ides (the 15th day in March, May, July, and October; the 13th in the other months.
The day known as the Ides originally was set to correspond with the full moon...
(remember this part until later in the post, please).

This past weekend was the local quilt shop retreat weekend.
And I took a couple of pictures...
this was the corner where I was working- that's my candy dish and a commission project closest to the camera.
A generic room shot:
There were many projects finished...
not any of mine  =].
Many laughs,
friendships renewed,
new friendships made,
late nights,
oh yeah...and a full moon.

Wait, what happens at retreat stays at retreat...

Time change + retreat weekend = tired, tired, tired, me.
