  • Mood:

a better day

hmm... I seem to be setting my mood to tired or something similar lately. I guess that it's true that I've not been sitting idle.

I actually set my alarm today so that I would not sleep in too long. I was up before 11 and got busy. I've finally completed putting all the finishing touches on the latest set of furniture we picked up at Ikea. I'm pretty pleased with the results.

After that I headed out to dinner with my parents and brother and his wife (!!!) at the Fremont Classic. Dinner was great and we heard all about their honeymoon. If you know my brother you'd find it not at all surprising that as they went to Ireland, they visited the Guinness brewery first thing. It sounds like they had a great time though. They stayed in a castle one night, which sounds really cool.

After that we stopped in at their place and chatted for a bit before I headed home. I did some cleaning while listening to an audiobook (Heinlien's Stranger in a Strange Land) and had some homemade blueberry mead. Alcohol that you make yourself really does taste better :)

Now I'm making a post, with a new userpic even. I decided that I was long overdue for a new one so I hooked up the iSight and played around with the color settings on the output. I think that it came out pretty good.
