First Day of Summer

I worked the first day of summer. But at least I was doing Flash animation so it was not like it was really hard work. For lunch, I sat out under a locust tree back of our office and enjoyed the mugginess (94 degrees) and the breeze and reading, Lost in Rooville by Ray Blackston. A good read by the way. The full moon came up huge and orange last night. It was a sight to see. I'm in a good mood. Party is this weekend and Sunday I bought $1000 worth of fireworks. This should be some 10th anniversary party!

Just some of the stuff we'll be blowing up.

I've been helping my folks out the last two weeks with stuff around the farm (last weekend we redid all the plumbing at the farm) and with my dad's 50th High School reunion. They are having it next summer at one of our barns over in Adam's County. The weekend before last saw dad and I pressure washing the inside of a 4 story barn and getting rid of a family of skunks that had inhabited the barn over the winter. I used to not mind skunk smell but when you stand in close proximity for a few hours, it gets to you.

Last Wednesday, I called in sick. Later, when i got to feeling better, I went out to the other farm to help Dad with a reunion committee meeting. I made Frogmore Stew in a big pot on the stove and in dutch ovens outside, I made jalapeno cornbread and regular cornbread and a pineapple upside down cake for dessert.

I'm hooked on the muscadines. If not for the taste alone than for the high antioxidant qualities. I even bought a bottle of the concentrated grape seed extract in May. Make me feel mucho goodo.

I haven't done the grape seed extract. But, I hear it's rave reviews lately.
I make grape juice, syrup, and I buy grape seed oil. It makes an awesome honey mustard dressing.
