[personal] Sunday flies by at the speed of weekend

Slept in a bit, then rolled up to see calendula_witch off for her return to San Francisco. Her plane was horribly late getting out, but we didn't realize that til after I said good-bye her at security. It was great to have her here for JayCon, which was awesome. So good to see old friends and new.

the_child and I are off shortly to a car show with K— and a friend of hers. That will make for a nice afternoon. Back this evening for writing and more bloggy goodness.
