We've had some crazy weather lately. Friday afternoon it rained, then became gorgeous and sunny, then rained some more. There was a rainbow over our house (which of course dissipated before I could get outside with my camera). Then there was just rain. Then it was sunny and beautiful again. Ah, spring.
I bottled my first batch of beer Wednesday evening. It involved some cursing and a lot of splashing beer on the floor, the cabinets, and the stove. I wussed out on capping bottles and ended up putting about half the batch into growlers. After all the bottling drama, I invested in a better siphon and read up on the right way to do things. Hopefully, the next batch won't involve as much angst. This batch will be ready for drinking in another week or two. I'm pretty excited. (Batch #2 is going to be way more complicated and involve a lot more aging, so I'll be doing another simple batch in-between. I am hooked on homebrewing already, and I haven't even tasted my beer!)
My insane dog. She's attempted to throw herself into oncoming traffic twice this weekend. WTF, dog? As I type this, she's curled up behind me snoring her stupid head off. Why is my dog so crazy? WHYYY?
Ok, I'm off to eat pancakes and do dishes. Then I think I'll try to convince L to do something outdoorsy. I'm feeling really down and need to combat that somehow... I'm thinking a long walk or bike ride should do the trick.
