Spring flowers are blanketing the yard. Some might be weeds, but for now, they are flowering.
Our local raccoon is regularly getting into the lower koi pond and causing all sorts of chaos. He messed up the pump, turned over a potted papyrus and ate a whole bunch of snails. I can see his claw marks all over the PVC pipe.
The daughter is enjoying her final year of Chinese language at Westlake. Seen above participating in Chinese Cultural Night.
This is the fourth bike I've purchased recently from ebay and craigslist. New bikes are $400-900, but I've been scooping up decent bikes for $100-200. Kat is in charge of getting her own bike. Really, when is she NOT in charge? (joke... sort of. #mightgetmyasskickedforthatone )
The week in beverages:
I found Kat's FAVORITE beer on tap just two blocks from the house. Hops Grains Mosaic is $6 a pint (14oz pint) at Blue Dahlia, $5 for HH. She's not yet gone to enjoy it as she's lightening her beer consumption lately.
This year has us exploring Cotes du Rhone. We haven't had any bad ones, but we haven't had many really GOOD ones ether. I did enjoy the one above, I'd buy it again.
