Saturday: [personal profile] shalmestere went to her vielle and viol lessons, while I did some yard work. Met her for lunch, came home for a nap, then drove to Poughkeepsie for a really good concert of 13th-14th-century music on the theme of Dante. Had a really good barbecue dinner in Poughkeepsie, then drove home and crashed in bed.

Sunday: woke late, made pancakes (for the first time on our new stove!), took Moongrrl for a walk in the park. [personal profile] shalmestere spent a few hours finding and/or arranging processional-sounding pieces to play on shawms for an upcoming SCA gig, while I did more yard work.

In a previous post, I lamented the finish of the new cabinets in our mid-renovation kitchen. Got an e-mail reply from the manufacturer, saying "the veneer is a multi-step process, and we don't recommend trying to change the finish." Which is exactly what one would expect them to say: they have nothing to gain, and considerable to lose, by "authorizing" us to refinish their cabinets. So the reply doesn't carry much informational content. However, I have some scraps of leftover cabinet material, and we experimented Sunday with sanding and staining it. Preliminary results: some of the pieces are made of real wood, and they stain reasonably well. Other pieces are plywood with a plasticky veneer, and neither sanding nor staining has much effect on them. Fortunately, most of the plywood parts are internal; the parts of the cabinets that face into the room are mostly real-wood.
