Yet again time slips away and it's been weeks since an update. Not a whole lot going on with me though. Work is work and I'm getting better at the process and improving my writing. I've been busy making beer and my first batch is bottled. The whole process is so simple and straightforward, it's surprising more people aren't doing it. It is a bit time consuming, I suppose, with the brew itself taking about 7 hours from setup to cleanup and bottling taking a couple hours. I like it, as it gives me something to do by myself other than reading or looking at a tv or computer. I even like cleaning my equipment at the end of the day; it's makes for a nice satisfying resolution to the brew. And then nothing is as happy sounding as a fermenter bubbling away the next day.

I did go golfing last weekend which turned out to be a lot of fun. I hope to make a habit of it too. I'm still not putting in enough time on the rowing machine but tennis and golf has to help some, right?

This weekend my band is playing again. Sometimes I almost regret joining because the practices break up what would otherwise be a wonderful lazy weekend day but I have so much fun performing, it makes it worth it. I also reflect back on what I teach the Eminent Child about the value of practice and the sense of achievement one gets from investing time and effort to develop a skill or achieve a goal. I'm sure it will be a good night. Can't stay out too late as I've got a tennis game the next day. Not sure I'm ready to play with others but I'll just have to step up. Serves will be interesting.
