Nothing memorable over Memorial Day weekend

We played this weekend very low-key. Main reason was that Doug was sick -- allergies or something. After two weeks of pushing hard and getting little sleep, he gets a three-day weekend to recharge, and instead he's coughing and hacking all over the place. Needless to say, he was a little ticked because of that.

We did attend a gathering at the house of one of my friends. It seems like during the summer she has a few folks over every other weekend to hang out and swim in her pool. Often it's girls only and we have a wonderful gabfest. This weekend, however, it was mixed company.

We had talked about making fruit wine this weekend, but found out that blueberries were not yet in season. Blackberries, our other berry of choice, was, but we decided we'd wait a week or two when we could pick both.

Doug did organize his beer recipes this weekend. In another week, it will be two years since he started brewing. In that time he's made 57 different beers, and that's not even counting the beers he's made more than once. He's ready to start taking his brewing to the next level.

Not much on store for this week.
