Gimmick it might be, but it's a fun one!

There was Potter-watching. As usual it involved lots of slashariffic giggling and at one point everyone in our row jumped at the same time even though everybody knew what was going to happen. Beats me how that works. I'm not gonna do spoilers but I think it was worth the money to go see it.

There were also sheep. I got a call last Tuesday saying they had broken through the solar powered electric fence and were marauding the garden and what to do? I suggested closing the road gate and that I'd fix it on the weekend. When I got there there was one at the bottom of the drive, 6 in their paddock and 9 in the vegie patch. The garden is looking... pruned. The sheep are looking.. smug. Only now they're safely tucked away in the back paddock where they can maraud the overgrowth and hopefully the garden will recover. Sheep are insulated, and electric fences don't always work on them, apparently.

And then there was paint!

Also, thanks to all the WDC folks who came, it was cool to have a dance with you all.

Yesterday was spent entirely in bed, not all of it sleeping. I thoroughly recommend this as a Sunday activity. ;-)

I managed to put my back out on Saturday lifting a wooden gate one-handed while sliding around on a wet hillside. The gyrating on Saturday night helped, but I'm still very stiff and sore. I may have to give hooping a miss tonight in favour of gentle stretching, some groaning, and the Illuminati Temple meeting. Speaking of which, do I have the date for that right?
