busy weekend

Or, I got to be very social at least, even if I didn't feel like I actually accomplished anything. I'd planned to do some catching up yesterday after being so busy but, well, that didn't really happen. Oops.

Friday night I went to see a concert at the local outdoor music venue with my family. We saw The Killdares, a localish celtic rock band with a bagpipe player, a fiddle player, and a lead singer who is also their drummer. They're one of my favorite bands! They play at the State Fair of Texas, which we always go to, and they play this venue at least every few years, so I get to see them in concert fairly often. It's really nice :) Here is the sibling and me, and some not-very-good-quality pics of the band:





Saturday we went to the annual EcoFest event. It's basically vendors from eco and animal rights companies/organizations, food, and activities like planting a flower or whatever. It was fairly interesting the first year, but it's been pretty much the same since then so it's kind of lost its appeal. The best part is the little petting zoo they have set up. It has pigs! I love pigs! Getting to pet the pigglets at least made me happy! :)





After that we stopped at a garage sale and I got some pretty good stuff. Cute dress that actually fits really well (and is unfortunately dry clean only...), a necklace, and a basket that will probably be used for my crafty business.



And then game night with the friends as usual. Though not so usual bc we now have two people regularly ditching out on us instead of just one :/ It caused quite a bit of drama, unfortunately. But we got to play Love Letter and Trivial Pursuit Bet You Know It, both of which I really love, so it was fun for a bit.



Sunday (or, well, all weekend really) was the biannual library book sale. At the end of the sale on Sunday they always let teachers come and take as many books as they want (they actually encourage them to take more no matter how many boxes they have lol) for a small donation. My dad is a teacher, so we always end up with tons of books basically for free. Our goal was no more than six boxes and we ended up with five, so we did pretty well lol I personally ended up with about 65 books (and a set of VHSs)! They have been put away on my already overflowing shelves... Someday I'll stop getting so many books, but that time is obviously not now.

Oh I haven't heard of that one either. Splendor is a game about buying jewels of different colors, and then using the jewels to get prestige points by buying "development" cards or royals. First one to get fifteen prestige points wins! It goes pretty fast and the rules are simple, but it's still a strategy game.
Ooh that sounds just like something my group would like :D I think I will check it out.

Coup is a game where you play nobles trying to stage a coup. You get two cards that represent your influence in the court and each of the cards does something different. Basically you go around trying to collect money and assassinate or coup the other players and the last person with a card left wins. It was one of my faves until we got Love Letter lol
Coup sounds awesome! I'm going to have to get that one. Anything with power struggles and strategy, I'm all over it.

And I definitely think splendor is worth it, we've played it a bunch.

well in that case, there's also a companion game for Coup called Resistance you might want to check out too. It's not a card game technically, but basically you play the people trying to overthrow the nobles from Coup. It's a lot more strategy and tbh I'm not very good at it lol
