Long Weekend in Review

The long weekend was pretty mellow. Friday after-work beer-o’clock turned into dancing in Kizzy’s living room to YouTube videos at 2:30 in the morning. I love it when an unplanned party occurs!

Needless to say, I was a bit tuckered and perhaps even a bit hung over on Saturday so it was a quiet day. I headed out to do groceries and wound up getting sucked into “the vortex” (McAllistar Place & environs), emerging 4 hours later with multiple shopping bags. I headed home and fed the cats and then headed over to the Greek Festival. Kizzy was singing with Opa when I got there, and when she finished her set, we enjoyed the awesomely delicious food. We had planned to stick around to see Pavlo perform, and we were breifly introduced to him, but we were both pretty beat and decied to leave and perhaps head back later, which we didn’t do. I stopped in at Matt’s house party for a short bit and met a few friends of his and caught up with a couple of other people, but I was feeling pretty tired and mellow so I didn’t stick around long.

Sunday morning I almost finished “Bitten” by Lisa Armstrong. It was a very action-packed read about a woman who is a modern-day werewolf. A bit of a mystery and a good quick read (thanks for the lend, Lisa!) I then headed to Kizzy’s for her big Canada Day BBQ, which was great. I didn’t drink much and wound up sticking around until 12:30. It was nice to catch up with everyone there and I enjoyed the BBQd food, the company and the bonfire and singing. When I got home, I finished reading “Bitten” :-)

Monday I was pretty thankful to have a day off and made the most of lounging around and haning with my cats. I finally got up and made some guacamole and grabbed my stuff and headed to Jay M’s for a good big session of D&D. We had a bit of a slow start to the session as Anthony worked out a bunch of spell and scroll stuff that he had to figure out, and we paused part way through the evening and enjoyed a tasty BBQd meal. Our adventuring company made it to the King’s birthday but the feast hasn’t started yet. That’ll be next week. I can’t wait!!
