Pie and times

My lovely wife has made a pie of strawberries, blueberries, and either raspberries or blackberries or both. I have not eaten the whole pie; I am eating the last piece. It is tart, cool, and refreshing.

Big events in the last few days. Most notably, we're moving forward on buying a house. It's been just over a year since we came home after the storm and we are overdue to have a place of our own. On some level, I feel like we've reset to three (!) years ago. Yay, mortgages.

Some new games in the mix, most notably Agricola, which is proving rather popular in the local group.

I did not go to Gen Con, so I've had to live vicariously through my distant friends' posts about hip new RPGs and bleeding-edge boardgames that I've not heard of. I don't like being the guy not in the know, and it's hard to prep, schedule the time and assemble players on the same mental page.

That pie looks damn good.

Ah, storm recovery. It takes so damn long sometimes. Congratulations on getting out of that shed - it'll do wonders for your sanity and your relationship, I'm sure!

And we picked up Agricola last weekend, but have not actually had a chance to play it yet. Maybe after we're done with hauling my show to the gallery tomorrow...
