The best packed plans

This past weekend, I had all the best intentions of settling down to unpack and organize everything in my bedroom.

Then I got hit with inspiration for a new board game design, about shopping at a farmer's market. So of course I had to take a trip to the local farmer's market for research purposes, and that ate up Saturday morning. Then I had to make a prototype to test the idea, and that devoured Saturday afternoon. Sunday I had to play it, then I had to cram all my regular weekend tasks into what remained of the day. I think I ended up unpacking maybe one box.

On the bright side, the custom door I ordered for my new bathroom is finally done. Now comes the logistics of arranging a time when my neighbor with a truck is free to help me pick it up from the shop.

I'm hoping to get at least some unpacking done this coming weekend. Chances are, though, that I'll keep working on my game prototype. Or spend a few hours in the garden...it's just about time to start picking cherries.

My bees have worked their way up to the Flow portion of my hive. There's a little window in the side, so I can peek in without disturbing them. Right now they're just filling in the cracks with wax, but I imagine they'll start loading it with honey before long.
