a pleasant evening
Last night we were able to get the girls in bed early--they were both really tired and fell asleep almost immediately. The evening was delightfully cool, and I sat on the porch for a while with my feet up, reading. Then my friend Onye dropped by for a cup of coffee--she even brought a bottle of Bailey's to sweeten it with. I poured the coffee into one of my '50s-style decanters and made a small pot of decaf for Crystal. After Onye left, Crystal finished watching The Lord of the Rings while I played out part of a campaign game in Close Combat. It was nice spending time chatting with Onye--when you have kids, it's easy to feel kind of isolated, especially since we're often so tired after the girls go to bed. Onye lives close by, and we hope to enjoy her company a lot more often.
