Visiting Normal

Yesterday we took a drive in the country to visit friends. Said friends live in a totally awesome straw bale house that they built themselves. It is gorgeous and inspiring. These same friends also train at a fantastic dojo with a sensei who learned from Evie's sensei (what is the Japanese plural? I'll get back with that!) Anyway, Evie asked to train there yesterday, she was welcomed warmly. They did a bunch of weapons stuff which she really liked.

We had a picnic, played and talked. Then we drove home, watched a silly movie, got engrossed in, again.

Today I am writing letters (actual paper ones) to old friends. I hear the chop saw and drill press in the basement so Evie is up to something. Scott is running errands. This afternoon will bring friend-time for Evie (they are teaching her chess, she is teaching them Aikido) and dough making for Scott and I.

Marathon Aikido for the kiddo tonight, 2 1/2 hours. She is giddy.

Huh. So that's what "normal" looks like right now!
