The best thing for me is not having to work. Exams at the school are over and corrected, we had our teacher's meeting and now we just have to wait until the holiday officially starts!

Looks like all the chiefs are out of the office this afternoon and I'm not too busy. Don't tell, but I might have some extra reading time ;)
At home with a good book and the cat...

Discovered a new-to-me flavor of ice cream at the grocery store called "Grandmother's Cake Batter." Tastes like buttercream frosting. YUM :)

Best thing this weekend was the California Coast Renaissance Festival -- lovely weather, good friends who drove up to meet us for their first renfaire, and because we paid the 'gate' (meaning Jay and I weren't there as actors, so we had no obligations whatever) we did exactly as we pleased -- which means we used normal English, instead of 'basic faire accent' -- an odd way of speaking which is not much like real 16th-century English as read in Shakspeare or the King James Bible, for instance.

Best thing tonight is our own bed. :)
