I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time setting up my MacBook… AGAIN. My hard disk quit working properly after my laptop fell off the table to the floor. Yes, it literally crashed. 😦 There’s a surprise. Anyway, the thing is so old (c. 2006) that I can’t install a new version of OSX, and I’ve been struggling with dual booting between the old version of OSX and Windows 7 for quite a while now. So I finally got it up and running as a Windows 7 only PC. Works great. I was thinking about gardening today (not doing any, just thinking about it) and decided to expand my wish list for plants for next spring. That got me thinking about Hops. That got me thinking about beer. I realized that it’s exactly 2 months until my birthday, and that’s a perfect interval to make some good beer. 🙂 My birthday would be the perfect time to have another Celebration of Beer party. So my plan is to brew some beer Monday after we get back from a visit to my mom’s house in Eugene this weekend. Should be a fun trip. The weather is supposed to be awesome this weekend. We’re taking our bikes and plan to ride some of the wonderful bike paths around Eugene. I hope you all have a great weekend!
