a good weekend

First, I am excited to announce that Greg got me a new camera for Valentines day.  Here is the very first picture I took with it.     

Not a good start.....He was a little annoyed with me but took me to the zoo yesterday to get some practice.

Siku the year old polar bear cub. Isn't he adorable?

he's 400 lbs and his paw is bigger than my head

a hawk that landed in a tree right in front of us on our way out

Its a really good camera and now that I have the hang of it, its almost hard not to take good pictures.

Its officially been two weeks since we bottled our beer and first thing this morning Greg put a bottle in the fridge so it would be ice cold when it came time to try it. We took a walk to Grounds for Thought, bought this week's supply of coffee, some mocha and lemonade (I ended up drinking both) and a apple fritter.  Tonight we had some delicious vegetable soup made with my grandma's home-grown/canned tomato juice and then got grocieries. I saved us $3.55 by using coupons. Yea me. We came home, heated up some homemade vegetable soup and I then had the honor of popping the top off our first bottle of homebrew. 

Its good! I give it a 9 out of 10 and Greg gave it a 6 out of 10. It has a very slightly sweet nutty taste, not at all bitter like what I expected. Greg likes the bitter hoppy taste of IPAs so its not surprising that our brew didn't blow him away. Overall, we are proud and pleasantly suprised. I don't think this beer will sit around for too long. We plan on throwing a little tasting party in the next few weeks.  Most likely, there will be another batch of Bruielly brew in the near future. Success!
