Eclipse was viewed in the back yard while grilling.

After lunch smallest sister checked City Museum to see how busy they were. We went out and did all the climbing and squeezing and sliding. It was fun. We were super sweaty and dirty when we were done. Next time I'll wear pants that aren't jeans. May be worth it to get some knee pads. ($6 in the gift shop which seems reasonable.) Got a cute picture with the SU in one of those photo spots where you put your head into a picture. Robots in Luv.

Grabbed frozen custard on the way home. A regular is too slightly too big for me. Next visit I'll get the size smaller. Mine was lemon with graham crackers crumbled up in. Good.

Mom and Dad stayed at the house. Mom made a roast. Technically that went on the same time as lunch. Turned out well.

Am currently very tired and a little sore. I'm sure the bruises on my legs tomorrow will be spectacular.

Original plans for the day fell through to due to an excess of people at City Museum and the Arch being sold out for today and tomorrow when we went to get tickets.

Ended up at the Science Museum. Even though it's geared towards kids we still had fun. Too much walking though.

Taped all the things (knees, shoulders, right thumb/wrist) in anticipation of City Museum. Kept tape on for slightly too long. Meh. We're gonna try again either tomorrow or Tuesday. Depends on eclipse traffic.

Have had two really nice snuggles with sister's cat Todd. He's currently overweight because he keeps stealing dog food. Her younger dog needs food out at all times to stay at a healthy weight. (Promise they've tried everything. This is what the vet suggested and the older dog doesn't want younger dog's food.) This is a cat who's about 18 pounds when he's in a good weight spot. I'd currently peg him closer to 25. (We suspect there's Maine Coon in his recent ancestry.) Todd's currently sitting on my feet purring. I have a feeling cuddle number 3 is immanent. He got a bath earlier tonight and has been fixing his fur while glaring at people for the last coupled hours.

Edit: I have been told Todd is 24 pounds not 25.

I have a terrible habit of not sleeping before I travel. I don't know why. Turning off the computer and going to lay down for a few hours.

Taking a shower at almost 3 am was probably a not terribly bright idea, but I was hoping it'd relax me enough to nap. No dice.

1. (x-posted from tumblr) Tomorrow I'm getting on a plane to go visit smallest sister and coastie b-i-l until next Thursday. We'll be doing eclipse stuff and celebrating my mom's birthday. I'll have my tablet with me. DW is certainly getting checked. Email is a maybe. Tumblr is right out. I don't do mobile tumbling. Stuffed the queue. Drop a comment on DW if you need me.

2. Someone is going through and reporting pins of celtic (gaul etc) coins and maps and similar on pinterest. Like??? Multiple sources so I'm pretty sure it's an individual. I don't get the point? Like how were pictures of pre-rome and roman-era coinage offending you? Why are you reporting maps of what tribes were where? What is the point?

3. I burned my hand not too terribly though I've got a slick spot on my right middle finger that hurts when I poke it. Icing my hand until I wanted to scream seems to have done some good.

1. burned the crap out of one of my fingers making dinner tonight. hasn't blistered so far, but hurts. we only have 2 ice packs and no cube ice. both ice packs are currently in the freezer getting cold again.

2. i'm going out of town on Saturday through Thursday to visit smallest sister for the eclipse and to celebrate mom's birthday. we're kinda playing what stuff we're doing by ear. i'm not looking forward to air travel, but at least it's a short flight.

3. the SU played final fantasy xv and i tripped and read a lot of fic on ao3 so that's kind of being a fandom for me right now. i'd have liked the game more if there had been you know women in it, but the main 4 characters give me feels. i'd like to talk about it, but have determined that the fandom and i have different ideas on things. (like reducing the hereditary family that protects the king/queen and heirs to a bunch of dumb jocks despite the face the shield we spend the most time with literally is reading during all his downtime. gladio is a nerd and i will die on this hill.)
