Parties: harvest, anniversary, and adventuring

It has been a long and wonderful weekend, by my brain is now all toasted and burnt.

Yesterday was our usual fall party, which we went to briefly before heading up to Loveland for Chris & Todd's anniversary party. Broccoli is only a buck a pound at the grocery store, so I found a recipe for stir-fry in How to Cook Everything (my copy of which is starting to disintegrate, foo) with shiitake that I threw together and that I was quite pleased with it.

Anyway, so we got to hang out for a bit and see Josh & Sara & Rona who are in town for a few days, and then we zipped up the road for the anniversary dinner, which was great. Tasty food and we had a fine time talking with Jeff & Michael and their friend John.

Today was what really wore me out, though, because Thomas & I ran the one-shot for Josh. Our other players were Jerry, Bryree, Ted, & Kate. I think it went really well. We may well run it again for the other folks like Jeff who expressed interest, so I won't say anything about the details, but it was fun. Thomas and I got really in sync, mentally, and that was cool. I had been wanting to work on something collaborative recently, and to GM a game, so it all worked out really well. Yay!

Oh, and I woke up at 7 this morning to thundersnow, even though I went to bed pretty late, which is probably another reason I'm so tired. Roads are clear now, though, and it's supposed to be back up into the 50s tomorrow...
