We tackled a few house projects prior to heading up the street for a neighborhood party in the late afternoon. We have lots of neat new neighbors and plenty of fantastic longer-term ones, and that’s just a receipe for good times. I’m looking forward to getting to know our neighbors even better in the months and years ahead.

As a bonus, after the party we had the opportunity to walk through several of our neighbors’ homes where we discovered that the homes’ layout is exactly like ours. It was an eerie, intriguing and thought-provoking tour since we’re in the midst of a remodeling project of our own. Very inspiring!

Spent the evening playing a whole bunch of darts downstairs. It’s a pretty addictive little pasttime, and Bernard and I stayed up until about midnight chucking them at the board. I’ve got the soft-tipped kind of darts with the electronic board, and though that’s hardly a pro setup, it’s more than good enough for me. I especially like that the electronic board keeps score. The less thinking I have to do when I’m hucking darts around midnight, the better.
