Cuddle Party

Everyone needs contact comfort sometimes.  Not everyone has ample opportunities for this in facetime.  So here is a chance for a cuddle party in cyberspace.  Virtual cuddling can help people feel better.

We have a
cuddle room that comes with fort cushions, fort frames, sheets for draping, and a weighted blanket.  It has a basket of grooming brushes, hairbrushes, and styling combs.  A bin holds textured pillows. There is a big basket of craft supplies along with art markers, coloring pages, and blank paper.  The kitchen has a popcorn machine. Labels are available to mark dietary needs, recipe ingredients, and level of spiciness. Here is the bathroom, open to everyone.  There is a lawn tent and an outdoor hot tub. Bathers should post a sign for nude or clothed activity.  Come snuggle up!

In honor of fair season I am also laying out buffalo burgers, fried potato spirals, caramel apple slices, funnel cakes (regular and gluten-free), deep-fried oreos, and lemon shakeups.


Illinois State Fair

Today we went to the Illinois State Fair. The weather was mild and mostly cloudy. Instead of a trip cut short by overheating, we got to stay until our legs wore out -- although I was heating up from exertion rather than air temperature by then -- between 2 1/2 and 3 hours. I'm exhausted. It was totally worth it. :D
