No intro, just things.
-So it's Memorial Day Weekend and summer is unofficially here. In more ways than one. In NJ we have had our first official heatwave of 2016. It is irregularly hot out, to the point that it's making me question life without a pool. Yeah, it's that hot.
-Memorial Day is more than BBQs and cookouts, it's a time to remember those that have given their lives for the country. Try not to lose sight of that this weekend between the hot dogs and cold beer.
-Vegetables are in the ground and they are thriving. The backyard is all setup for outdoor living. The only thing missing is the pool, which may be set up sooner rather than later. If you remember, the Wife and I bought a blow up pool last year. It's a perfect size for relaxing and cooling off without the work of a large pool. Soon enough we will have a big one. Soon enough.
-Sean's Sorachi Saison has been bottled and is currently carbonating. I tried it last night and it still needs a couple of days. The flavor is there despite what the Wife thinks. I'm pretty happy with the beers I have brewed this year. Next up is a nutty brown ale with some fruit in it. Trying to make a PB&J in a bottle.
-As I mentioned above, it's freaking hot out. I have taken a new approach to the hot and warm weather. I am going to try and embrace it. I enjoy being outside, and I enjoy the fact that NJ has all four seasons. I embrace all of the other seasons, so why not sweat a little in the hot weather. After all, it only lasts a couple of months.
Here's to warm weather, a pool, and ice cold beers!
Until next time.
