A quiet couple of months... not a bad thing, provided your status quo is at least "good enough." Our summer has been full of idleness, aside from work.

OK, that's not quite true. The main regular summer activities so far have consisted of:

  • Reading: I've finished about 5 books since summer began, which is below my regular pace. I'm not working very hard to get to "the goal" this year, instead reading for pure leisure.
  • Writing: I actually put a few lines in a journal almost every day BY HAND. You might recall that I purchased a few fountain pens (although I've not actually made a blog entry about them, I don't think), and am putting them to good use. I've also managed to write a really silly short story for the annual gathering of my college buddies. It is quite ridiculous, so I obviously enjoyed writing it immensely.
  • Gaming: D&D is on hold for now, but we gamed through June, and the Transformers game is still going strong. And then there are the other games, board and card, which we regularly play. Gaming is a bigger thing this year than in years past.
  • Coding games: I've got a couple in process, although this one is probably as done as it's going to get: Have a go at it and let me know what you think. 
There is a collection of other activities as well, but we'll leave those be for the time being. Suffice to say that we continue to be here and mostly busy.

And remind me to tell you about my sprained ankle, but let's wait until next week for that...
