I got a lot of good sleep last night, and I woke up feeling refreshed and well-rested for the first time in probably weeks. Woke up naturally too, without an alarm. And then stayed in bed until I felt like getting up. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to do that on a day I’ve got something scheduled.
Did my usual morning routine, including making some tea to take with me to gaming with MLTGF. We were set to play Magic, and I wanted to make sure I was all prepared for it. Then, when I left, I forgot my tea! LOL
Met my friends and we played for an hour or so. It was Phil, Trish, and Dave today; Dan chose not to come. No big deal. Missed him though. At about 15:10, when our first round wrapped up with Trish winning, I decided to head out. Trish had a headache and was going home, and there were some things I needed to do. My friend Anita, to whom I had an Amazon order sent, had texted me asking if I’d be home when she was downtown, and while I told her I’d be home around six, I had things I needed to get done anyway, and, to be honest, this was a day when I’d kinda not wanted to game at all. I’d wanted to hole up and write, even though I suspected I wouldn’t do so anyway as ideas weren’t flowing.
So I departed Oasis Games to head home. About a block away—I’d just crossed the street heading west, when someone on the street honked. I ignored it, thinking it was meant for someone else. They honked again, and this time I looked to discover Anita waiting in the turn lane. Since Dunkin’ was back the way I’d come from, I promptly turned around and crossed the street to go to their parking lot on the corner. This resulted in me hopping into Anita’s car. She had Greg with her.
After dropping some donations off at DI, we stopped at Sprouts I think and Smith’s to get some food for supper, then went to Anita’s place. There, we chatted while Greg and I crocheted, then we had supper and watched a couple of interviews on David Letterman’s Netflix show (I think he looks good with that beard); we watched the Howard Stern and Malala Yousafzai interviews.
It was a little after ten when we finally left Anita’s. She drove Greg home, then she and I went to Baskin Robbins for some ice cream and we had a nice chat while sitting in the parking lot in front of Trader Joe’s sipping our milkshakes. Then she drove me home, and I fed my cat, and here I am writing today’s blog post!
