this weekend was great! went to buddys house after work on Friday and had a few beverages... on the way home stopped at Fernwood for just ONE drink. double gin and tonics.... and then a beer, and then a triple of Yeager. what no dancing tonight? shit, we were out of there.
got home and made a few phone calls. cheese talked to her friend for a while and didn't really remember much. than we called Kay. (hi Kay!!!) cheese doesn't remember much of that either. she ended up passing out on the couch. how did she become such a light weight?!?! hehehe, (hi cheese!)
talked to Kay for a good while and am sure filled her head with all kinds of funny thoughts. we are going to try and make it up to her place towards the end of the month. except as I'm writing this I'm also Google Earthing "death valley" AND where Kay lives.... they are not as close as they seem. i had also mentioned driving up to harass Cher as well... i mean visit. gonna have to talk to the cheese about all this. i thought she was listening and uh huhing, but was really snoring and sucking up drool off the leather couch! hahahahaa...
Saturday we had a bunch of people over. friends of cheese came and watched us garden. (their BMW couldn't make it up our road. hahahaaa, they had to walk like a mile and a half uphill. hahahahaaa. i guess that made them not want to help.) anyways, we planted corn, red and yellow beans, beets, Asian radishes, carrots, scallions and some more flowers in the new raised beds i built. then i ran the auto drip irrigation and sprayers into them and pressure tested.
had some more friends come up and started in a little heavier on the silver bullets. decided to all walk out to "the point". its on our property and has a sick view of the canyons down to the ocean.
this is a shitty picture from the point which is on the Realtors web site. but you get the idea. from there we hiked down to the creek. the six of us went down and the five of us built a small dam. we raised the water level over a foot in the swimming hole we choose. problem is, the water is so far down into the canyon that there is not so much sun. its hard to jump in a mountain stream when yer not that warm and the water is that cold.
we hike back up and warm our bones in the sun for a while longer, then head back to the house. couple of people split and a few more show up... our initial plan for the day was to have a BBQ.
we made three different cuts of steak, some wild boar sausage, venison tender loins and some store bought peppered pork loins. bust out a large salad and some garlic buns and baked potatoes and broccoli... there was more but memory starts to fade at this point in the evening. after dinner we watch the cartoon version of Sindbad for the fiftieth timethen we booted everyone out and hit the sack.
Sunday was also spent in the garden. built some more steps up the back side of our garden heading towards the chicken coop. went to big sur to pick up cheeses girls and hung out with a buddy. watched some "cops" and headed home. made some three meat spaghetti sauce and garlic bread. (ended up making that a little too salty) chowed down and put the kids to bed.
yeah, the time change can kiss my ass at this point.
oh yeah did i mention that I've been sick as hell and spent most of the last three evenings coughing and snorting up half a lung?!?and got like a total of six hours of sleep since Friday? no, i didn't mention that? oh...
