Today, I am at work all dressed up for Halloween. Lacking any actual foresight into this event, I simply put on my Renfaire outfit with pirate shirt and plumed hat. This is making me happy for many reasons, not the least of which that this outfit reminds me fondly of telynor, who traded me this shirt for a denim jacket, and of maedbh7, who enthusiastically shared with me her passion for Renfaires.
Last night, kitanzi and I went to joyeuse13 and abovenyquist‘s house for dinner. We had Thai Chicken and Rice and Broccoli with cheese sauce and it was all extremely yummy, and we sat and talked and had a very enjoyable time.
Earlier on Sunday, we went to the gym. This was the first time I’d made it there since the day before we flew to OVFF, and I was quite pleased to discover that I have continued to lose weight. I am now down nearly 20 pounds from where i started, without *really* trying. One of my goals starting here in November is to get up on that horse and really stay on it, and see if I can find the lower side of 300 again before too long.
Saturday was mostly quiet. tarkrai came over in the afternoon and I went out to keep him company on some shopping errands he had to do. It’s vaguely amusing to me that I probably see *less* of him now that he lives 3 miles from me than I did when he lived in Michigan, but we’re trying to change that. We came back from shopping (where I picked up two copies of the just released City of Villains) and had a marvelous dinner of ham steak and sweet potatoes.
All in all, it was a nice weekend. When’s the next one due? 🙂
