Let’s see, Friday the gang descended and settled in for a long night of roleplaying while I watched the “Return to Snowy River.” Which wasn’t nearly as good as the first movie “The Man from Snowy River,” but I still mostly enjoyed it. Pizza for dinner was num num too. They didn’t go to sleep until sometime around 6am. I snuck out to go to my appointment and brought back bearclaws. In the process I found out that the ones in the packages are the day old ones left over (they didn’t have any bearclaws packaged) and that you can get a box by asking at the counter (they even gave me a price label sticker) and pick out fresh ones from the bins.
After that the gang regrouped (some came back, the rest that crashed woke up) and dove back into more role-playing. I just finished watching the Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers) dvds, and I sooo can’t wait to see the next one which comes out soon. X (the first dvd of the tv series) came in the mail too, and it is so pretty, probably the prettiest CLAMP animation I’ve seen so far. If you don’t know what’s going on it’s a bit confusing, but basically you’re filled in as the characters are, so things are confusing at first because the plot is so complicated. The characters and great fight scenes make it easy watching though, even if you’re not sure why things are happening yet.
I think the gang was up till 4am this time, all I know is almost everyone was gone when I got up the next morning. I spent most of the day lazing around, but I did manage to get 3 loads of laundry and a load of dishes done. Yay me! The kitties were thrilled to relax in bed with me too after their fun but exhausting last 2 days entertaining and being entertained by the guests. They especially enjoyed the fresh air from the window I opened so we could all appreciate the soft gray skies and cool breezes we had all day. I love the fall weather, the cloudy skies that don’t hurt my eyes, cool air that doesn’t make me miserable. That and it means that soon I’ll be gearing up for Christmas! 🙂 Oh and CS had fun helping me install my new windshield wipers. I didn’t think of it until after dark once it started sprinkling, luckily it turned out to be pretty easy and the new ones work great so far. Then I got to leave 20 minutes early this morning to gas up the car, because I managed to forget that this weekend too.
Goals for this week:
finish last load of laundry
file away papers in office
continue clearing off hutch in front of fireplace
prep for party (figure out what I’m going to bake & buy ingredients)
