Vallaria ni Ciara
Aidan and Darian have been gone for weeks now, and it's so lonely without them. I keep finding myself wondering what they're doing over there. And it's cold at night without Darian here.
I'm trying to keep the villagers safe, but they're frightened to go into the woods. I think I'm going to have a long talk with Aidan when he gets back. A little caution is fine, but he's so paranoid sometimes!
Brigid is doing well; her baby should be born in another moon or two. She's so happy with this pregnancy, and has promised to offer the child as a fosterling when she (or he) is old enough. That should please Lady Illyrie.
The stillrooms are well-stocked, and Galatea's promised to bring me some of the rarer plants from her grove. That'll be most welcome; the fosterlings seem to get coughs and chills much more easily this time of year. Fortunately, I've stocked up on remedies for them.
I need to check up on Elspeth and give her her medicine now, so I'll stop here.
