Elise and Maly left for vacation at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning. I’ve been a bachelor ever since. Saturday consisted of watering the lawn (and it rained 3 hours later), then buying, cutting, staining and installing new slats for our heirloom lawn chairs.
The one on the left is the “new” one.
I spent the rest of the afternoon working on The Ultimate Bacon Sundae (TUBS):
It has been created… homemade cinnamon, coffee and candied bacon vanilla ice cream, bacon cups and chocolate covered bacon, I’m just waiting on neighbor folk to come over to be my lab rats! I can tell you this: Cinnamon, coffee and candied bacon ice cream is the best ice cream I’ve tested to date. Seriously.
Today consisted of waking up early and washing the car. After that, I parked my butt on the couch and watch Batman Begins in HD that I rented from the iTunes music store via the AppleTV. I can’t believe I didn’t see that movie sooner. Because I only had 24 hours to watch it, I watched it this morning again, too. Awesome movie.
For the rest of the day, I guarded the couch and TV. I watched MXC and UFC. Late in the afternoon I decided to make my special super-spicy beef jerky. I decided to dehydrate the jerky in a new spot — the guest bathroom. This new location seemed to isolate the smokiness, but also managed to melt a candle in said bathroom, which has since rendered some aromatic and therapeutic jerky. Nothing says “home” more than boysenberry, cayenne pepper and melted fat.
Therapeutic Jerky would be a really cool name for a band.
