Three Day Weekend

Saturday, we went to Peach Days in Hurricane for the first time. ninjababe rides the company float, but has had to go back to work after, but this Sat, she was off. It was fun. I think I'm nearly converted into a small town denizen LOL After Glenn and I watched the parade, we met with Nin and walked around, looked at the quilting competition, and the canning, baking, and photography competitions. I may enter my Plum Masala Salsa next year, and maybe the peach, but will see how that comes out first. Then we came home, and took a nap - that lasted till 5! Yipes.

Yesterday, I slept way too late, and by the time I got everything done that needed doing, the day was mostly done. I bbqed up sliders for dinner, and then Nin and I watched the first two DVDs from this year's VividCon (thanks settiai!). There's some awesome vids on the DVDs, and from those, Nin has decided she wants to watch Community, and we've decided we need to give Sherlock another shot (we never can make it past halfway of ep 2), and that if we ever watch Up! we need lots of tissues. I also sent strangevisitor7 a long email outlining the Loki fic I want to write. Now it seems real. As I've pondered/mentally written, I've realized it's become something of a riff on Snow White. Totally unintentionally, and it bemuses me.

Today, it's really overcast, though whether we get any rain remains to be seen. Nin has to work, and I may make peach salsa, if I can work up the energy. Though what I really want to do is write. Maybe another cup of tea and something to eat, and we'll see. Did preorder Captain America and order a wedding gift for assistant T at work, so I've done something.
