Celebrated Memorial Day with a barbeque in the front yard. It’s been nearly two years since the Gazetteers have had a cook-out. The break was probably a good thing, but it was cool hanging out with Katie, Michele and Olivia. Zac showed up late, but it was cool. We reflected a little bit on friends who were no longer with us (in Houghton, I mean. They’re stil alive.).

I think I overdid it, but I wanted to make sure that the cookout had everything. So I offered up hamburgers, steaks and chicken (and chips and fruit salad). The grill was slow in warming up (I need to have more patience.).

The weather was excellent though (it was sunny with a slight gust). The bugs weren’t out at all, but I put on a little DEET just in case.

I’m really kinda of tuckered out, but my apartment is clean for the first time in … well, a long time. I just feel like stretching back and relaxing. Speaking of, just one more week before a legnthier break.
