I had my second games night on Saturday. I am trying to do this monthly. I had 6 guests (Athena, Acorn-girl, 2CatDaddy, Dragon-boy, Emmanline and Rinehart) plus we roped GF into playing Trivial Pursuit with us because we wanted to play teams. It was an anniversary edition and the questions were weird. Instead of history, it was current events. Instead of the entertainment questions I'm used to, it was questions about movies in the last 10 years. |
Athena and I were partners and you would never know that we have 15 years of university between us for all the questions we didn't know and had never heard of. The night went well, although there was probably too much SCA discussion, which may have bored Athena. It was fun, but I still prefer going out with someone one-on-one. I had six people over, and I'm not sure that I said more than 50 words to any of them.
I did give Athena a copy of the poem that I wrote for Lia. So now, I can give it to the KWG to post on the web page. (I wanted her to see it before it got posted publicly.)
Tyr didn't come. I had thought of inviting someone to the games night that I thought he might hit it off with, but I never got around to it - so that at least worked out. I had an hour long chat with him before the party (when I should have been cleaning.) He was quite upset as two of his closest friends decided to leave his church. The manner in which they did it upset them. Plus, while he can still see them socially, he won't see them as often. I could only relate by analogy since almost everyone I used to hang with in the SCA has left Caldrithig or is on hiatus. (Not that I'm implying that the SCA is as important as church.) We also talked about the SCA and told me where he was coming from about Coronation and was sorry if he had given me the impression that he was trying to make me feel guilty for not going. So, we're all made up. Except I have no idea when I'll next see him to show him the pictures of our trip.
Hedwig (trying out a new LJ name for Janet)and I have been discussing having a weekly prayer group for a couple of months. She emailed me the other week and said she felt led to suggest early morning. Another woman will be joining us. Proposed meeting time Thursday 6:30-7:30 AM!! (Anyone who has ever seen me or had to go somewhere with me first thing in the morning will be rolling on the floor laughing right now.) I am excited - and I think the inconvenience of it all will actually do me good. Spiritual growth is not usually achieved through everything always being convenient.
I got the last box of Goldkey from the previous chatelaine. Now I only have one box to get from Anne. I keep thinking that I'll see her at meetings or Bardic, but I never do. (And I miss her as well.)
Did Myers-Briggs tests with the Youth Group in class on Sunday.
Because I had planned to go to Coronation, Emmaline's scrapbooking workshop, and Crown, I now find myself with 3 out of the next 4 Saturdays being free. I have decided to look at them as "Bonus Days". I have been given a gift of time, I didn't think I was going to have and I want to use it to its best advantage. (I know - we should view everyday this way, but shhh! I'm trying to trick myself into being more productive.) I hope that by publicly declaring my intent to do something I never have time to do on these days that the publicness will keep me accountable, since I don't want to be posting that I spent any of my bonus days playing computer games or lying on the couch watching Trading Spaces re-runs. :)
So what are you going to do to use it to your best advantage?
I am glad things went well at gaming and that you and Tyr have made up.
I'm not completely sure what I'm doing with Saturday yet. But I'll post on it after the fact.
One thing - I may go to the post-rev at Aelfeda's house. It would be a chance to congratulate KES. And Ii've never been to a post-rev before.
Cool I would get to see you then. :)
I may go. Right now, this cold has been sapping my energy and I'm not sure if going to a party that doesn't start until 10:00 PM will be something that I can do.
But hopefully, I'll be better by then.
I hope you feel better soon.
