The new year is underway and I hope you all make the most of it.
I finished up 2006 with a few fun things.
On Saturday, Zoe and I went to play some Dungeons & Dragons at a neighbor's house. I had forgotten how long it can take to get though even a few encounters.
Zoe had a good time and I think it may become a regular activity to keep the campaign moving along. We only got through making characters and two fights before having to call it quits for the day.
Why did we quit? Well, we had to go work on the South Pasadena Rose Parade Float. South Pas is one of the only communities that still builds thier own float with volunteer effort.
From lunch to dinner, we helped "pick", meaning sitting at tables preparing the flowers to be glued and stuck onto the float. Endless bundles of carnations and roses passed through our hands.
Another whole crew was dedicated to the work on the float. Next year we're likely to spend even more time helping.Posted by michael at January 02, 2007 12:12 AM
