Black eyes and dinner for 12!

Went to an awesome trampoline-covered fun place for Marges birthday on Monday. Tons of fun but a kid in our group and I had a collision that resulted in a black eye for yours truly. Hurt worse than it looked at first, now it looks worse than it feels.

By the way, who's idea was it to candy-coat Advil anyway? I find myself licking the damned things before taking them like "oooh,  I deserve a treat...."

Anywhooo, now relaxing at Breck and Sharon's after cooking an Asian meal for the family. Cousins, aunts, cousins once removed, you name it. A group of about twelve all together and it worked great! I taught everyone to make spring rolls and Amanda made a great stir fry with rice. What a team!

Now starting to see the end of Arizona in sight. About time to start looking ahead to the next adventure, Georgia!

Not a lot to report on the seelie players front unfortunately. Materials sent out and waiting for progress on gig leads. Move soon hopefully...

Another day, another Village Inn.....

Yeah, so the video's a bit smushed but you know what? It took a lot less time to upload, so there!

Working on music while in the RV, I've started doing a once-weekly music jam and Amanda is coming to the next one! Can't wait :)

Helped Casey make about a bazillion deviled eggs for the RESCU Rally (RESCU is a group that works like a pseudo-insurance company for rennies, basically financial assistance for financially downtrodden rennies...)
The rally was awesome and we had a blast, we even gambled a bit (blackjack, who knew you were so addictive?)
Casey's deviled eggs won the salad portion of the food competition, so yay. We received as a thank you (you guessed it) a plate of deviled eggs....our favorite food on the planet!

Amanda won a really nice bamboo flute from the silent auction and is learning to play it when she has the time.

Whelp, laundry's done and we're taking up our server's section. Time to watch more West Wing and snuggle. Rough life right?


Anyone watching West Wing will get that. Any not, start watching The West Wing.

Loving our new life!

Got a pizza made in the ovens maiden lighting! Tasted great and watched a Japanese comedy/melodrama while eating. Memories came flooding back, I forgot how this show chokes me up. Fortunately Amanda felt the same.

Got a free mattress today, Cameron is upgrading. So big gain there. Now we aren't sleeping on tetrised together pillows. Now walking over to a music jam night with my guitar.

Things are really starting to settle into a new lifestyle. I'm always ready for an adventure cause its there, ready or not!

Oh, and look what was strolling through our backyard today....
