Quiet Week

It was a quiet weekend, followed by a quiet week so far. On Saturday we did house stuff, a few errands, and took Corinne to Totland in Berkeley for some exercise. Sunday was more house stuff, and I fired up the grill in the afternoon to smoke some tofu and make dinner. Corinne had fun playing in the back yard as I smoked and grilled, but then she loves playing in the back yard.

Corinne hasn’t been sleeping well this week, and this morning I think she woke up with a bit of a cold. Raelene too, which I guess means I’m next. Hopefully it wont be bad, and will pass quickly. 🙂

We have very little planned for next weekend, maybe lunch out on Sunday but that’s about it. Hopefully I can use the break in our social schedule to get more house stuff done.

Happy Bastille Day!

When Raelene and I were in France, we saw an impromptu techno rave party at the Place de la Bastille. It was a lot of fun, with a lot of dancing and presumably a lot of glow sticks once the sun went down. Anyway, Happy Bastille Day!

Monday

The past weekend had it’s ups and downs, but overall I think it was a good one.

On Saturday I ran a Dresden Files RPG game at DresdaCon, and I had a lot of fun. I was incredibly nervous going in. I’d never run a DFRPG game before, and I wasn’t sure how well I would remember the rules during play. The game also requires a lot of improvisation to keep the story moving and interesting, which is also intimidating since I don’t have a lot of experience doing stuff like that. In the end I think everyone at the table stepped up to create a very enjoyable game. I’m ready to play again. 🙂

On Sunday we attended a friend’s wedding. It was in a beautiful, historic building in Berkeley. The ceremony was short but touching, and the reception was a lot of fun. I saw a bunch of old friends, and was able to catch up a little bit (although it’s never long enough). Corinne dealt with it fairly well. The wedding was during the tail end of her nap, so I wore her out in the morning to get her to nap early. She sat through the first half of the ceremony, and then we went and did some exploring. She had a grand time, and even did some dancing with Raelene and I before we headed home.
