Back again on a dreary, Monday. It is colder than it was all weekend and still rainy. That being said there were a lot of things being done this weekend. I’ll quickly go through them, since I have a few more pictures than I normally do.
First up I got what I could out of my frozen cider! It was a little more than 2 liters. This is what I expected from 2 gallons of cider. I wish it was a bit clearer, but its not bad. I had some and it is definitely alcoholic haha.
Saturday we were up nice and early and going to get some work done on the cabin. We put the rest of the roof up and they did a few more floor boards without me and a wall frame.
(Below) You have my little brother, trying his best to attache the roof, without sliding off of it. You can wee how wet it is.
(Below) My dad and older brother are probably in a discussion about that piece on the right going up a certain way. It was nice that my older brother could come up. he works second shift and his sleep is all messed up.
Later after I left I went home and took my wife to Olive Garden for dinner, then strolled the mall.
On our way back, we passed a dinner that I always want to make time for and never do. I asked her if she would want to go the next morning (Sunday) for breakfast, and she said yes. We got up and got there about 8:30-9:00am. It is a small place but with great food.
You can see the walls were decked out with old pop cans and signs.
The tables are are covered with a glass sheet, but have cards, records and ads from old magazines under it.
Here is just a shot of how small it really is. That is the kitchen there in the middle.
They also had some memorabilia, that boarded on the creepy haha. It was displayed liek this in a few spots. with old toys and dolls.
Here is the store front, and you could guess that it sits right on Rt. 62! Go figure.
To put it in perspective, here is what is directly across the street.
It was a good decision to stop there for breakfast. Later that day my wife’s grandparents made the trip and came over to see us. We went and looked at teh local dam, which is a huge tourist attraction. Later we headed to Applebees for a less than satisfying lunch.
After they left, I followed a thought I had had for a while and bought two Roku Express thingys, for my TVs.
They were super easy to set up and after restarting my router I connected just fine. Everything is fast and responsive. We now have three network enabled TVs in our home. My office is becoming complete haha. I also have a futon mattress being delivered Thursday! I’m very excited.
I hope you all had a great weekend, and hopefully better weather! I’ll see you all again tomorrow. 😀 😀
