Unfortunately, because of high winds last weekend—thanks to Hurricane Fiona—we didn’t get to have our family picnic to celebrate birthdays. Disappointing, but when we saw how hard Fiona hit the Maritimes, we really couldn’t complain. (One of my blogging friends wrote to tell me that Maine power companies had sent trucks up to help with the widespread power outages.) Next weekend, we’ll try again for a birthday picnic.
I’ve been busy, busy, busy working on my book Of Time and Magic. We got the first proof copy in, and as you can see from all the page markers, I found quite a few things to change or correct. I expect there will be at least two more proof copies before the book is ready to be printed for readers.
Despite all the hard work of editing, I still found time to have a little fun.
There was Gloomhaven with Dee and Clif.
And our friends Dawna and Jim invited us over for quiche and salad—Yum!—and S’mores for dessert. Double yum.
Dawna and Jim’s daughter and son-in-law built them this snappy fire pit.
Jim started a fire,
and the roasting commenced.
As you might have noticed, the marshmallows on the left are a little on the toasty side.
No matter! Tuck them between chocolate and graham crackers, and as we would say in Maine, you have a wicked good sweet treat.
