Day 1.039: Tuppence a bag?
Our quiet stay-at-home Presidents Day was interrupted only by some blocked drains and a resulting trip out for lunch. Other jobs attended to were some tidying up, maintenance on the vacuum cleaner and some use of it and refilling the wild-bird feeders - this last chore recorded for 15 seconds of excitement for you.
Apart from that it's been a relaxing day at home - with some Rock Band time (me singing, Exile #3 helping by shouting something in the break sections, Exile #4 sometimes drumming or strumming a guitar along, E5N1 watching in amazement, Exile #2 doing something useful elsewhere). I did persuade Exile #2 to put in some Electric of Nouns time later this evening.
Our meal out was nice - we arrived at 12.30pm wondering if the place was open, it was, but we were the only customers. By the time we left it was almost full - it seems people eat late on holidays.
I also called my parents, some of the time we succeeded in having a video call with two-way audio - recent attempts at Skype video calling have resulted in a maximum of three of the four necessary components (in/out audio in/out video) working. It's nice when it all comes together.
