I have a hard time believing summer is past its halfway point. It seems like he just got here, kicked off his shoes and I poured him a glass of beer.
Now he’s an old man already eyeing his watch and making a mental packing list.
We’ve had a houseguest or three for the past week and it’s been great. Aaron, of my name is garlic fame, arrived last Tuesday and stayed for a week, and Casey and Traci got here on Saturday. Casey and I visited two breweries, including the Avery 12th Anniversary Party, and did a lot of home tasting of fine brews as well.
It was a blissful escape from the day to day routine, and completely destroyed my internal “what day of the week is this?” clock.
On Saturday, Anna found out that her cafÃƒÂ© is closing in a couple weeks. A few weeks previous to that she found out she was getting a promotion. Alas, what a twist.
Lots of stuff in the fermenter right now. It should be an interesting second half of summer.
