It’s been a very quiet week compared to my super busy weekend. I got to see all the people I planned to, running up to north western Ohio, and then to Michgan, and back down again for even more birthday celebrations. And tonight, homemade spaghetti sauce to finish off the week.

I had a great time visiting with my brother, mom, dad, nieces and nephew. We played a couple new (to me) boardgames: Black Sail and Quartz, which were competitive enough, but not overly so. My brother and his kids gave me another board game that I have not yet opened: Champions of Midgard.

I had lovely food with everyone, including trying out a new Sushi place near where I live (I had a Korean dish instead), and a beef brisket, freshly smoked, for my birthday dinner.

The week I have spent relaxing, cleaning up, and working. A nice quiet week to finish out July.

I’ve also been lazy about audiobooks. I listened to The Martian, and Catching Fire. I really need to go through and find next books in all the series I’ve been listening to. I’ll have to do that this weekend. Also this weekend is finishing up my newest D&D character for a brand new campaign on Tuesday: Guardians of the Multiverse. It’s going to be great!

Had a nice quiet long weekend and played Lots of new boardgames. I’m not even sure I remember them all, let’s see: Star Wars:Rebellion, Lords of Waterdeep, Tsuro, Pandemic, Star Trek: Five-Year Mission, The Game of 99, and Run for Your Life, Candyman.  It was a nice way to ring out the old and in the new year.

Finished Princep’s Fury, and Proven Guilty and am waiting for First Lord’s Fury to become available – last book in the Codex Alera series, and am listening to White Night at home. I’m on the Dune waitlist, too. Figure I should at least give it a try.

Two pre-interview rejections on the job front. One interview next week, and one more application waiting. Looking, looking, looking. Full time needed as soon as I can manage.

Life’s pretty good, all in all. Getting together with friends this weekend, and DeCon next weekend. 🙂
