Two weeks since the last game. Phil called Min and apologized for leaving Mt. Dew containers around two weeks ago so he is allowed to come to the game tonight. Phil and Jeremy ended up coming over and Min joined us. We ended up playing from 8:00 until 2:00. We had a good time. We have learned that we just don’t enjoy playing in unbalanced teams so we are trying to avoid that happening from now on.

I installed solar powered walkway lights yesterday morning and they are all charged up today and we get to use them for the first time. They turned out to be really nice. I really like them. They are supposed to be white but they are slightly bluish. They were really inexpensive. We got them on sale at Wegmans. My dad thought that they would probably only last until 9:00 at night or so but they seem to last all night. I checked them at 4:00am and they were working just fine. So we are planning on picking up another package of them so that we will have eight total. Four of them don’t really light up very much of the sidewalk to be as useful as we would like.

Min did a bit of gardening today. We have a small garden spot in front of the sidewalk leading up to the front door and it needed weeded badly. So she went out there and worked for hours getting it into really nice shape. We have to work pretty hard at that because all of the neighbors have really nicely manicured little garden areas and we don’t want to get left behind.
