Weekend Wrap-up

Welcome back from what hopefully was a restful Labor Day weekend. If you live in the King's Dominion fiefdom, you'll be welcomed back with an extra serving of back-to-school traffic, which us Loudouners have already been dealing with for a week.

On Friday night, we visited Old Ox Brewery for tacos from a truck and a sampler of their new brews. The humidity was at armpit thresholds, but this also meant that the patio was only lightly occupied.

On Saturday, Rebecca went on an AT hike (this time, without any giant backpacks) in an attempt to recapture the magic of the Alps, while I did my usual errands. In the evening, we got an infusion of new local blood by hosting a barbecue for Rebecca's yoga friends. Dinner was partially meatless, featuring grilled blackened chicken breasts, grilled portabello mushrooms, and grilled tomatoes with cheese.

Sunday and Monday were relaxing, indoor days, which I partially spent doing proposal work and partially spent reading Hugh Howey's Wool book. We also started the TV show, Fargo, and are wrapping up the second season of Rectify, which moves much slower than the first season. We did not watch the VT-OSU game, because streaming it requires a cable subscription, a nonsensical requirement akin to needing car insurance to ride in an Uber.

How was your weekend?
