Lordy, I was tired this weekend! But on the plus side, my neck is feeling ok. Not as bad as last week with the blinding headache.
On Friday, Ash and I had Mexican and beer then decided not to see a movie but to go bowling. I had fun doing that and then we went home to take a nap.
The next morning, we ate breakfast and then got out around 9 to head down to Alligator Point. Ash’s co-worker and, coincidentally, his RA from the dorm in like, 1999 (!), has a beach house and invited a bunch of folks. We had a great time grilling, paddle boarding, kayaking and hanging out. Around 3, people started to leave but we stuck around and did go down to the beach (their house is on the canal around the corner from said beach) and hung there for maybe an hour before going home. Long day but fun. I was still hurting pretty good so I sat on my butt while Ash cleaned kegs, etc in prep for brew day Sunday.
Ash got an early start on his next brew, an Irish Red Ale with an abnormally long fermentation time (6 weeks). I was helping for a time but knew I had to get to the store. Elliot and I walked into the store and it was dry and sunny out. 25 minutes later, it was a torrential downpour and I couldn’t help but feel awful for Ash out in the front yard with all his brew stuff out. Luckily, he got an umbrella over the kettle and then one of his buddies came by and helped. Rain makes for an interesting time getting all that stuff done!
That afternoon, I had to brave the laundromat because our dryer is having an issue. Well, I can tell you exactly what it is: Dakota likes to collect rocks and keep them in her pockets. I found them in the dryer and thought I got them all but it seems one got in between the drum and the motors that move it so it makes this awful sound. Sigh. We’re going to open it up this week sometime but I had to get laundry done. Afterwards, I was just beat; not sure why but it felt exhausting.
I basically spent the evening (after making spaghetti) sitting on my butt, watching TV. There was a wrestling pay per view and I took an hour off to watch Game of Thrones. All in all, good weekend!
It’s freebie week and I am sharing a video that I will warn you about. It has some weird stuff in it but it’s also kind of funny. Just give it a moment.
