Apparently Father’s day is tomorrow. I just bought some cards today…better late than never, right?
But that isn’t what is important. What is REALLY important is that we got an outdoor campfire grill/pit type thing. We went tested it out tonight and I quite proud to report that it toasted four marshmallows perfectly, and it was quite a lot of fun to just sit around and it and smell the burning wood. I mean, having a campfire really made my home feel like home.
I can imagine growing old in this place now, and I like the idea of it. I can’t wait to have folks over to visit so that we can sit around the campfire, roast marshmallows/brats or whatever and have everyone still be able to sleep in their own bed. It’s so freaking awesome. I am very, excited.
People should start coming over now.
Before that though, we picked up our vegetables, and then took a long bike around through the arboretum with Katja. It was quite awesome, she knew all the backroads and paths around the arboretum….it was a pleasure to just follow someone who knew what they were doing. Of course when I got home my knees were kind of hurty. They feel like that if I keep them bent, like sitting for more than few hours. Some of you may or may not know my knees are going to retire early.
Currently we have FIVE dogs in the house. Pluto and four ankle biters. All of the Madison siblings in laws decided to leave town for the night and needed someone to look after these buggers. It’s okay, except for one. Didimus. This dog is completely irredemable. Poops, pees, and is forever barking. I don’t get why they haven’t gotten ride of him yet. None of us want him, and pretty much everyone that knows this dog thinks it’s an asshole. I know that there is some bitter old lady out there that needs a dog just like to coddle and pamper until the end of it’s day. All I want to do is throw the dog outside and let it fend for itself.
Ugh. BUT….in payment we got some belguim beer/wine, raspberry. It was quite good and now that is gone I am going to head to bed. I’m kinda of tired and there is no point to staying up late.
