Some Stuff
Posted July 05, 2005 at 11:13:00 AM by Bean
Had a good weekend. Relaxed a lot. Worked on the basement Friday and Saturday, went swimming Sunday, brewed beer Monday.

The basement is ready for furniture. It's also ready for my taps to be remounted. My dad made a sweet tap-back out of some oak from their old barn. It look svery nice. He's also going to fashion some shelves to match. He's pretty excited about helping me build my bar. More news to come on that. I'll be moving 1 mega couch (5 cushion), 1 normal couch, 1 loveseat, 1 big couch-like chair, and 2 recliners down there tonight.

The beer I brewed was a bit of an experiment... only used one type of grain (pale) and one type of hops (cascade). The hops were about 60% storebought and 40% my very own home-grown cones. Had some trouble (2 boil-overs) so I only ended up with 4.5 gallons of Hop Harvest Ale. It's bubblin' away.

In completely unrelated news: I'm officially back on the reading bug. I get into reading about once a year, and that tiem of year has come. Currently reading The Mote in God's Eye and listening to The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, Book 1) in audiobook format.

Eye of hte world is a really great series, really long but really good.

It's hella, HELLA long.

I've decided I'm not going to read any more until Jordan's finished, and then I'll go back and read it from the beginning. That way if he gets hit by a car and dies, I won't be pissed off at the lack of ending.
