Ok, honesty time.
The down side to all this, is it was around 30 degrees C today, air conditioning has been running all day set to 22 C.
With 4 of the 5 gas burners running since around 3pm, all with water or sauces boiling, plus the oven going, our main floor is 29 C. Might need to go sleep in the basement.

I laugh alongside you. You poor bastard! Hope you get some respite...

#1 had a noon birthday party at TopGolf today. So, #2, the Mrs and I got a bay for ourselves, hit a few golf balls and had lunch. Good times. Came home and went to work in the winery. Put the final pieces back together after the recent water events. After that, more winery organization in prep for (hopefully) Friday's grape pickup. Racked the Walla Walla Cab Merlot kit, then moved it into the barrel. Got everything ready to bottle the Cab Sauv Rose in the next several days. Topped up the 2016 Cab and Syrah barrels and moved the top up wine down to smaller containers. Swept up, staged some stuff and took final inventory to see if I needed any supplies. When I pick up my grapes, Harford carries a lot of supplies and I also need to stop my MD Home Brew on the way home to pick up my C/D - I can pick up any last minute goodies there. I think I'm good for Friday, but I'm sure I'll come up with a few more things to do.

64 yards. So yesterday's 61 yarder was no big whoop. Especially considering the competition.

Posting a little late, but on Saturday we had a "send-off" party for my oldest who is going into the Air Force next week. Gonna miss him quite a bit, it is only sinking in now. Anyhow, started the day at dawn getting the smoker going for some ribs for he and his buddies. Had about 35 people show up, which is about my max as I was cooking "to order" and on my poor legs for about 6 hours straight. Got to relax and watch the Eagles try and loose to the Giants on Sunday. Luckily they found this kicker from some practice squad (Cinci I believe) that finished the game off in our favor for a change. I like the video that Paul posted of Eli's face at the end of the game, priceless!

Oh, last image was of the guest of honor (other than my son). One of the perks of organic gardening. Took a ride on one of my wife's cousins, she asked for a beer when I put the camera down (Labatt's blue was her preference)(the mantis asked for the beer, not the taxi).

Made some Habanero (from our garden) bourbon hot sauce.
Was actually irritating our eyes and throats while it was boiling. Tastes awesome!

Final prep for crush. Gonna run up and get my C/D later this morning, and grab a crush bin at Lowe's. A quick cleaning of the Brutes will also be in order. I've got all my yeast, chems and additives, so all set there. Empty carboys will get a cup or two of KMeta solution and get capped with solid stoppers while they wait for wine. I should probably make a crush checklist as well - almost forgot to add the Lallzyme last year.
