The chores part had to to with accumulated activities (like decrusting the glasses/dishware on the open shelves), plus prepping for what turned out to be hosting and protein, as our guests brought much of the remainder of the meal. Lucky us!
The fun part was dinner with fam&friends. The best.
The evening included the best after-dinner activity: a M-fire. Overseen by an incredible moon.
Early on, the moon had an orange cast, not captured by our camera(s). You have to use your imagination.
