I get this phone call today from Monique telling me that she is down stairs in the building with a surprise– She got her hair cut. It is ok to die now. She looks so hot! Man; I am so happy to be married to this beautiful person. Wow, what a haircut; my favorite– a bob!

Stella always has her tongue hanging out of her mouth. Its pretty hilarious. Oh, and that is me after a 4 mile run this morning.

Sunday I made a loaf of sourdough bread, gazpacho, and pickled all my peppers. All the produce except the carrots and onions were from the garden. Pictured is a basket of eggplants and a few red cabbages; those i grew as well. I had to relax with one of my home brews; a Rye Pale Ale dryhopped with Northern Brewer. So nice. Pickles were a month ago, and I messed up the brine once again–too much salt! 🙁 Hit me with an email and I can give you my recipe.
