We’ve had a beautiful spring day that was perfect both for working outdoors and playing. I did a lot of both – working with Dad until we stopped for a late lunch; and then in the afternoon and evening with Ethan, Ehlana, and some friends and cousins. Michael joined us when he could during his breaks from the Inn and after he was finished for the day; and we wrapped up our night with a minor make-out session in the lounge after Ethan and Ehlana went to bed.
The work was mostly garden-related; though we did some work on the storage barn and by the river too. Once I was set free after lunch, I went to the park with Ethan and Ehlana; and we eventually met up with Naomi, Aiden, Zack, Brianna, and some other friends and relatives. Michael met up with us there and we played on until we decided to go to the Emporium for our afternoon snack break. We picked up ice cream treats and drinks; went to the falls; and had our snack there. When Michael needed to be back at the Inn, I took Ethan and Ehlana home; where we stayed outside to play; and eventually had dinner out there too when Mom and Dad opted for an easy-meal that included cold salads and barbeque chicken.
Uncle Adam, Aunt Leanne, and the kids ended up coming over when they stopped in for a visit on the way home from their own afternoon play time; and decided to donate some food to the cause and have dinner with us. That was fun, and so was the post-dinner play time that I had with my sister, brother, and cousins that got me out of the clean-up work. The Carringtons headed home by around eight o’clock to get started on bath and bedtime routines; I brought the twins up to the lounge with me to watch a movie while waiting for Michael to come over; and then he caught the tail-end of that movie before Mom rounded up Ethan and Ehlana to get them into tubs for their own baths while Michael and I started a second movie that we didn’t really bother watching.
He stayed until a bit after eleven o’clock, but was falling asleep by then after starting his day so early with the breakfast shift at the Inn; so I sent him home – despite the fact that we both really wanted to just stay together and have another sofa sleepover. I got ready for bed after seeing him out; and have been doing a bit of work in a time phase after seeing that some family business work needed to be taken care of while checking my email. It wasn’t a lot to do, but the time phasing was so that I can still be sleeping before midnight.
I’ll need to wrap this up without any literary side-trips to do that, and there isn’t anything else to report from today anyway; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
