Not a bad one.

Saturday
Up, to a dog show, to a new HBS that's a little to far to visit but was enroute to the dog show. A few purchases a chat and a look round. Then to the allotment to plant a few things and a BBQ. To the pub, back to a friends then home to a few HBs.

Sunday
Up, Help my Brother move a few things. Planted a bed of sweetcorn at the allotment. To the beach for a BBQ and a 10 mile walk with the dogs and friends with my god daughter in the dunes. Home, showered then walked 4 miles to the nearest pub with "real Ale", Pizza then a bus home and finishing the evening with a bottle of champagne.

All of this in perfect summer weather in beginning of spring when it is normally the best part of 50°F colder. (I have a tan)

Like I say, not a bad weekend.

Mine was not bad, also.

Went to a Sprinter (MB in Europe) van fest Sat. Bunch of van converted to recreation vehicles, some professionally , some DYI. Multiple dog walks, chopped wood.

Dog walks, kegged the Bent Rod Rye & did some cleaning in the brewery. Cut more wood, still need to split it (I HATE heating my house with wood, by the way). Cold and cloudy most of the time, but good weather for outdoor work. Looks like my Fuggles needs to be restrained, soon.

Friday:

Out of nowhere, a poker game emerged. This is awesome, considering that we used to have poker games all the time and then, one by one, four of our friends moved out of the state, leaving us with only three people to play poker with. So Friday night, we had a fourth which is just enough for a game.

Saturday:
Beaut of a day. We endded up doing some light spring cleaning, a little shopping and had some friends over for dinner. In spite of REALLY WANTING to stay up late, I ended up falling asleep at 10:30.

Today:
More cleaning, then friends over for lunch and the Cubs game. Cubs lost and some other less than desireable things happened, but then SWMBO decided to take HWMBO to her brothers place. That translates to me having the house to myself for a few hours. To the LHBS I go!

I don't even want to talk about my weekend after reading about yours. Sounds very nice.
I've just been doing chores around the house and not feeling all that great. This Damn diabetic medication is giving me fits.

I've been organizing my garage, but at least one day I'll be able to post one of those "check out my brew area!!" posts and everybody will oooh and ahhh. I did get in a soccer game today and got to drive around in the truck buying garage organization stuff, so it wasn't a complete write-off.

Saturday: Easter Egg Hunt (yes, a week late) at my dad's house for my kids and all the other grandkids, then we all went to a local Mexican restaurant. They had a mariachi band that sang happy birthday to my son (3 on Friday).

Sunday: birthday party for my son. Lots of new toys to play with. Also fixed my Jeep that was intermittently failing to start. Great weather. All this goodness was then balanced out by the discovery of the sewer backing up in the basement. (Quick! Move the brew equipment and the beer fridge!)

Pretty uneventful weekend.

Saturday clean house, burn a bunch of branches from a tree I cut down last month and racked my porter.

Sunday, did the Walk for the Cure and then went to a fireman's picnic and had some awesome sonoran taco's from a caterer that came up from Nogales MX. Beef, Pork and Chicken all cooked over mesquite. Yum. Sunburned.

My Weekend was pretty good I can't complain. Bottled my batch of Pilsner that I made first thing in th e morning, cleaned up the kitchen, sat down and watched a couple of movies. And Since today is the last day of my weekend, gonna hit the brew store and pick up some supplies today, sanitizer, couple of beer kits today. and also picked up a third carboy last night. I cant complain about the price as it was given to me.
