I took today off - we'll be shopping, cleaning, and (hopefully) packing books.

Tomorrow we're hosting the Minn-StF Meeting. The menu includes

* Vegan Curry w/ Brown Rice
* Sweet & Sour Meatballs
* Carrot Cake

Then on Sunday, we have to clear out the master bedroom. Next week they're repairing the roof, tearing the wallpaper off the master bedroom, repairing water damage (if needed) and painting the walls, and painting the dining room ceiling.

It's going to be a long weekend.

    I slept 16 hours yesterday - which was about 5 more than I was really expecting.

    The Minn-StF Meeting went well - IIRC, we ended up with about 28 people, the last person left about 10pm. The pulled pork, potato & cauliflower curry, and chocolate fondue all went over well. I'm less certain about the guacamole and french onion dip - the fact that there was some of each left may have spoken more to the amount of other stuff than that were actively disliked.

    [ profile] mrissa & [ profile] missista showed up first. [ profile] kalmn showed up shortly thereafter with Pirate and Josie. A little while later [ profile] jbru arrived with Tara and Teddy. There was much playing in the back yard. An hour later (maybe a little longer), and [ profile] davidwilford & Erin (WINOLJ) showed up with Missy & Caelidh (sp? - pronounced Kay-Lee). Shortly after that [ profile] bernesemntdog & [ profile] kosmickitten showed up. [ profile] chirosinger & [ profile] musicmutt showed up with Kobe a little while after that. There was much doggies having fun, and monkeys being amused by doggies. [ profile] davidwilford & Erin & Co. were the last to leave, about 4:30.

    Everyone enjoyed the day (with the possible exception of Mac), and all the dogs seemed to be quite happy to be going somewhere where they could rest. I have three (mostly?) sleeping dogs curled up against me right now.

    I'm going to do it again sometime - exactly when depends on what [ profile] iraunink is doing when with the back yard.

    [ profile] jbru and I were both taking pictures - there was one more camera, I think it was [ profile] chirosinger's. I'll get my pictures up later, I'll give a pointer to any others that become available.
