It was a great week though. David came down Friday afternoon and we went to Kubota for dinner. My first dinner there since my return and I have to say miso glazed eggplant is still amazing. I showed David around Japantown, both the historic plaques and the wonderful market where we decided that unagi was perhaps too weird and expensive to take as a potluck item to Beltaine. *grin*
Saturday we headed up to Live Oak Park for the annual NROOGD Beltaine, which Owl Moon was bagholding this year. Chris was stage managing it for his red cord project and he had recruited wonderful folks and everything went just wonderfully. Jack in the Green and the Queen of the May chased off the Hag of Winter and we danced the Maypole and called the 'Obby 'Oss. The wheel was turned. It was a really beautiful day and folks hung out in the park afterward for a couple of hours. David and I followed Gwen & Nette home and we hung out there, hot tubbing and sharing food, for a couple of hours. A great schmoozing day.
Sunday we signed David up for WoW and he watched my dungeon run with Falkenrath Knights. My biggest problem is my character slots on Bronzebeard are full. I may have to transfer someone.
Sunday afternoon was the end of the Silicon Valley Reads program with Authors Willow Wilson and Sumbul Ali-Karamali at Santa Clara Public Library. I had the SiVIC Our Religious Neighbor Next Door display set up and we got a fair bit of interest and gave away about 30 flyers for SiVIC. It was nice to hear the authors one last time too.
Monday was a nice quiet day. Kurt had a migraine still, has had for the better part of a week. But we got our worgens through Old World Children's Week in WoW. I have to say that having a mage around to port one to the capitols makes that waaaay quicker. I miss world portals.
Tuesday we had family dinner at Amber India in Mountain View and I had wonderful tandoori rack of lamb. (Of which I am eating the leftovers as I type.) This is curry week evidently. I had bought curry powder at Ancient Ways on the way home from Beltaine and the bag broke in my purse so my iPhone smells of curry powder and I have been craving curry. So last night I made curried cauliflower and also curried turkey. Thus the tandoori lamb and curried cauliflower for breakfast. There are definitely things I love about my life!
Tonight is Pagansing at my house. We will undoubtedly sing May songs and then tomorrow is Rabbit's Oshun party up in Oakaland at Sacred Well. And At Home on Saturday. And I need to find a new gardener, deal with job search stuff and clean house. And do Children's Week on a few more WoW toons. I'm not sure why I keep thinking I'll have free time in here somewhere.
