It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the prompt of "Memorial Day Weekend Plans?? Do share!
I gotta busy weekend planned ... probably won't even feel like a "vacation" weekend ... but what better way to celebrate the unofficial start of summer than to hang out with friends?
Friday night is the big tasting of the beer we brewed ... if you haven't been following, my brother and I, along with a couple of friends, decided to try our hand at brewing beer. About 5 years ago, I won a beer-brewing kit and it had been sitting in my attic collecting dust. About 2 months ago, we went to the Dogfishhead brewery for a bar tour, and immediately got the itch to give beer-brewing a shot. We chose to do a cream ale - a relatively easy first attempt. Well, after more than 4 weeks, the beer is ready to be tasted, and what better night to try it than Friday night?
On Saturday, I'll probably wash the car in the morniing (yeah, majorly exciting). In the evening, we head up to the Avon Grove area to hang out with my friend Ray-Ray and his wife, and do a modified bar tour (thank goodness for friends who don't drink!).
On Sunday, my friends Rich and Mark and I are going to do some freshwater fishing in the morning, and then barbecue in the afternoon ... sounds like the perfect day to me ... I'm guessing we'll be spending evening and night there as well.
On Monday, it's probably more or less a recovery day ... unless somebody else has plans for us. Here's to hoping the weather cooperates!!!!
