Thursday was family games night, with pizza. [personal profile] sithjawa joined, as well as the partner's large array of siblings and their spouses/etc.

After games were done, my partner showed me Who Framed Roger Rabbit? out of the "You haven't seen that yet?" queue. And we watched more of The Orville, and I tested out my stand mixer by making some cookies.

Friday, in honor of the equinox, I baked a sweet cardamom loaf. Then we did a shopping run, and my partner made dinner.

These past two days have involved a lot of small gas-powered motors around. Partner has summoned a yard maintenance company to take care of some of the tree, bush, weed, and tenacious invasive morning glory things that the ex neglected in the interminable six months leading up to departure. It's been loud, but is so much better looking now. Though there are still some more things left for today, like the stack of lichen-covered branches in the driveway.

Long day!

Breakfast with partner and metamour Leopard Girl.

Seanan McGuire event in Silverdale. We brought tribute, and were briefly Seanan's favorite. (Diet Dr Pepper and candy corn. Seanan is a being of predictable tastes.)

Mini muffin tin quest!

Partner made a note they should chat with our mutual friend in London about stuff. Hooray, viable communities.

Dinner for the extended polycule, with many dishes thanks to Trader Joe's. (Rice, orange chicken with extra zesty sauce but no carrots since we ran out, BBQ pork buns, pot stickers, spring rolls, and green beans. The rice and green beans weren't pre-packaged, and I do a little customization to the chicken by adding orange peel and scallions. The gyoza and bao steam over the rice, and the spring rolls could bake with the chicken. The green beans start frozen and get gently fried with seasonings. Usually it's butter and Montreal steak seasoning, but Stray Puppy Girl is very lactose intolerant, and Leopard Girl dislikes red pepper. So I went for sesame oil, garlic, onion, pepper, salt, ginger, a packet of soy sauce that needed using, and the excess teriyaki sauce from the other night. It turned out well. To my immense gratification, my partner really likes all the iterations of the green beans that I have made so far. Generally they disappear immediately.)

Club night. Without going into excessive detail, one of the groups near the people I was with were having a hilarious time, and kept setting each other off giggling. That prompted our group to giggle. The glee was infectious.

Everyone is spending the night. We hauled the camping pads out of the alleged guest room (it is currently not in a state for guests as my textiles have exploded all over it) and they're set up next to the futon in case it turns from cozy to crowded in the middle of the night. Things are well set up for breakfast, and there should be cheesecake at some point (thus the mini muffin tins).

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

We didn't get any bad weather here from Irma, just a pleasant temperature drop and two school-free days. The worst impact from the storm among people I know who were affected seems to be the extended power outages.

Will made the Scholar's Bowl team at school, and practices start next Tuesday. I don't expect to hear anything about Math Team until October, but those practices have been on Wednesdays, so he shouldn't have a problem doing both.

Connor's after school Spanish class isn't meeting this year because not enough students enrolled. I've found an alternate activity for him on Wednesdays, some sort of board game club, but it only meets twice every six weeks. He has a field trip next week to some sort of environmental preserve, so I signed up as a chaperone in order to tag along and investigate.

Symphony chorus rehearsals start back Monday. Sadly we are no longer scheduled to participate in the Harry Potter soundtrack performance, but we do have the tribute piece and the Bach Magnificat to look forward to learning.

I've just acquired some of the latest LEGO Dimensions expansions, although I had to go to my local Best Buy to find them - surprisingly, Amazon hasn't stocked them. I'm hearing rumors that LEGO is going to quietly stop releasing new expansions, which is too bad, but I can understand why if the game wasn't successful enough to justify the continued expense of developing new content. And the update process is still very frustrating - my console has been trying to download and install the latest updates for over an hour now, and I had to free up system storage again before it would even get started.

I need to sign off now - I have a meeting in 45 minutes with one of Will's teachers and I haven't eaten anything yet.

This summer, my sister visited us for a short time. Bandit appreciated having another person in his fan club.
