Colorado Alex’s Excellent Eurotrip Vacation

So I’m currently in Spain after spending the week in Baumholder, Germany.  One of the perks of the job is that we go to military bases worldwide and do on the ground data collection, including interviews with local realtors.  One of the downsides of the job is that we have to go to military bases worldwide and do on the ground data collection, including interviews with local realtors.  It’s normally cool, but sucks when the base is located in a backwater next to nothing but small towns and the locals don’t speak English.  But luckily I don’t have to do an assessment of Fort Polk this year.

Sunday Poat

Leon linked to Alton Brown’s announcement, so I thought I’d link to this. I’m just gonna sit here and geek out for a minute. Maybe after that I’ll hit the gym.  I could try crossfit.

Meanwhile, I want to try this girl’s lemon curd. Here’s a better video of her saying something that doesn’t strike me as important.  She also has an Instagram account, because of course she does.  In it, she posts mostly tasteful, artistic landscapes as well as occasional pictures of her muffins.

Archer cocktails.

Some music for your weekend.

MMM 278: One more garden

I’ve got 6 big, sprouty sweet potatoes in the pantry, so at some point today I’m planning to get a little cardio by forking up another section of yard, piling in some compost, making a little fence of oak branches, and planting those suckers.  Because that’s an entirely reasonable thing to do when you have sprouty tubers.

Pretty girl, might be a strawberry blonde.

MMM 277: Again, already?

Yep, it’s already Monday.  I got absolutely nothing done over the weekend because I was on dad duty, and she’s really not at the point where I can rely on her to stay nearby while I do most yard work, nearly all of which is dangerous or excessively dirty anyhow.  It was also much too hot to do much outside, and she wasn’t napping well for me.  I think I watched 27 episodes of Dora.

Blonde in monochrome.

MMM 276: Early Summer

Days are about 15 hours long now, so I can’t say I’ve wanted or needed to spend much time indoors lately.  I think about all those folk who live in cities and can’t just spend hours and hours out in the yard or the woods every day and think : heh, chumps.  I found wild strawberries growing in my landscaping the other day.  Entirely wild, planted by God. It was delightful.  Those poor bastards living in terrorism targets cities will never know such simple joys.

Crooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosssssssssfiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

MMM 268

Howdy folks.  I have a new old dog that my sister needed to find a home for, so that’s been a fun adjustment over the last 12 hours.

Good morning.
