End of summer

judging by the temp outside we're heading into fall...soon...snow....ack

well, i guess that means planning a mexican vacation for the family....(and a UK trip for spring)

also...soup...and lots of it...

only 3 months left of 2012...where did it go ? the two ruffians are growing like weeds and becoming busier every day.

the wine will be past it's first stage by tuesday next week...then into the hurry up and wait stage

maybe we can fire up a beer in the mean time....a pilsner perhaps ?

my construction projects seem to be moving along nicely....i'l post a couple pictures this week (flooring should have gone in this weekend)

Also, have a new boardroom table design that I hope to be building...

not too much else to update so I'll leave you with this trailer (walken kicks ass):

Making Wine

Had a fun day of making some bread, cookies and went and bought a wine kit.....why not...
We've been talking about possibly getting into the cider business so we need to learn about what goes into making hootch...and I figured, let's take a crack at wine at the same time.
We bought a kit and some Cellar Craft Premium Pinot Noir...it says it's ready in 6 weeks, but I read online that people are aging it for up to two years...not sure I want to wait that long...we'll see what happens.

I'll do an update over the next while when we hit each step.
