Shortly after I arrived, siva showed up, and then moyet (and Pan). Then, later on, coyote (and Bastian) arrived. We sat around and ate. And ate. And ate. (Ham with potatoes, chili and rice, baked beans, succotash, corn soup, two types of cornbread, fry bread, something else I am forgetting...) And then we ate dessert (blueberry pie, haupia. Haupia!). Sat around chatting and playing with the puppies and chatting and playing with the puppies. Nyarla did an excellent job of foisting leftovers off on everyone, and I got home at about 3, sleepy and full, but quite happy.
It's becoming more and more important to me to make connections with the people I care about. To spend time with them, and to let them know they're important to me, and to give them hugs. I am glad that I have the opportunities to do so, and that they are a part of my life. Yay!
