Relaxing Weekend

A pause in the Gencon reports to give a weekend update.

Yay, I'm actually at home!

The flight back from Cleveland was uneventful (other than it arrived early). Kalen and Ellen picked me up at the airport, and then the three of us plus Ryan grabbed a late dinner at Friday's.

Saturday I went to the Cubs game with Bob. Beautiful weather and a close game, and the Cubs won (4-3). It would have been hard for the game to be better.

On the way home I picked up two weeks worth of comics from Graham Crackers, then grabbed a couple steaks, some ears of corn, and some salad makings and came home and grilled dinner. The evening was topped off by a game of Hawaiian Rummy and three games of Fluxx!

Today, Ellen took Kalen and I to look at the furniture she had picked out. We got the sofa and recliner she'd picked out, but switched to a different love seat and decided to get all the pieces in a chocolate-brown leather. My main thought is that the leather is going to be so much easier to keep the cat fur off. Everything except Ellen's recliner will be delivered on Thursday.

Then came home and grilled again. Beer can chicken, roasted new potatos, grilled asparagus, and garlic bread. And we enjoyed it all out on the patio.

Tomorrow, I need to work on the lawn in the morning, then there's another Cubs game to go to in the late afternoon.

And, hopefully, I'll post the next part of the Gencon report.


  • This comment probably comes too late (ie you have newer posts), but I'm curious about what you're going to do with your current furniture?

    And no, I don't have any room to steal it this time.

  • The two couches are not in great shape, but could be workable if people don't put up their feet and propped up each end with a thick piece of wood or something. But even then, they probably are on the last legs. They are heading to the curb for garbage pickup unless a better idea is heard before next Monday.

    The loveseat, on the other hand, is still in good shape. It's heading to the basement until one kid or the other moves into an apartment and want to claim it.
