Packing for the weekend trip. Something tells me we won't be getting out of here nearly as early as I'd hoped. At this point I'm just hoping I don't lose my time in Lawrence like I did with the June trip - we got on the road so late there was only time for dinner, because all the shops had already closed. *sigh*

Went digging in the costuming/con trunk for garb for Sunday, and realized I don't have much faire gear worth wearing anymore. Rather sad. I pulled out my old kitchen wench garb, but I'm not really feeling it. I may wear something fairly modern and very atypical for me, just for the fun of it. We'll see. (Not sure people will recognize me if I do, but I suppose that's part of the amusement as well.)
I need to find reasons to make myself garb, but I'm so far out of the faire loop these days that I'm not sure what those reasons will be. The next big shindig I have on my schedule that will involve non-modern clothing is fantasy with a heavy victorian bent (and no, I'm not talking about steampunk, though we may make it to a steampunk gathering or two if time and budget permit as well), so more outfits for that need to come first, particularly since I'm volunteering and probably hostessing.

-clothing for Sunday (faire), Monday
-food for at the hotel
-animal food to drop off at farm
-deposit checks in morning
-leave money for lawn care team

-Hotel info:
Extended Stay America
Kansas City - Overland Park
10750 Quivira Rd.
Overland Park, KS 66210

-give mom key and feeding instructions
-pick up buttons and hair stuff

In all this somewhat restrained mayhem, I got a call this morning from someone I hadn't seriously talked to in a very long time, who was a huge part of my life during my college years and for a while after. That was rather cool. He called again this evening, since we were interrupted earlier (both because he was making long-distance calls mid-day, which his wife wasn't thrilled about, and because I was running out of housekeeping tasks I could do at work with only one hand...), and we caught up a little bit more. Don't know how close we'll manage to be, but it's nice when old friendships poke their heads up and you can still trust each other with sensitive information. We probably hadn't talked voice since the one time we met in person, which was over a decade ago now. He had the startling realization this last week that I'm now 31. ;) Almost like a real grown-up!

Anyway, plans for this weekend are Lawrence tomorrow (later today, whatever) if we get moving fast enough, including a nice date meal. At some point I need to figure out how to get hooked up with [ profile] bountifulpots for a cheesecake, and I intend to get some time in at least 2 of the area half-price books. :P
Sunday is faire - we'll be outside gates by cannon if at all possible. If people want to coordinate to meet up, feel free to poke me - phone/text will likely work best, since I'm unlikely to be online much after bed tonight until we get back to town Monday.
Monday we sleep in, then take our sweet time getting back to CoMo, stopping at any antique store and flea market that takes D's fancy, which will probably be a lot of them... Anyone have any particular recommendations?

Also on my agenda - World Market (with my 25% friends and family event coupon in hand)

I saw browsing for other urban homesteaders and thought I'd throw a friend request your way if you are interested :)
