Another weekend has arrived. It's cool and rainy but, of course, nothing like the bitter cold we have had so I am not complaining. Spring is in the air, for sure.
Younger Son is playing in a rugby tournament so I'll make my way to that here in a little while. I hope, this afternoon, to catch some SEC basketball. The tourney is here in Nashville. I am not going -- tickets were way too expensive -- but will take in at least part of the semi-finals today on TV. I'm not the biggest of basketball fans but I do take an interest at tournament time in March.
Wife is leaving today for a little spring break jaunt with Daughter and Older Son's girlfriend. I am envisioning all of these projects I will do while she is gone and in my mind I am probably being a little overly ambitious. I can piddle around with the best of them and get very little done to show for it!
On the rare occasion my mother would be absent when I was growing up, she would leave detailed instructions for how to prepare food (which she had prepared in advance and only had to be warmed up). Happily, I am not nearly as helpless as my poor dad was and, although I am not a chef by any means, I can get by. Wife is an extraordinary cook and she offered to get some things ready in advance, but she also works and I would not have thought of asking her to do that while trying to get ready to be gone for a week.
Younger Son's spring break is still a few weeks away so he and I will be holding down the fort around here. He is usually fairly low maintenance and hangs out with friends a lot, so I'll have some time on my hands. Got all those projects to keep me busy, you know.
If the weather is good enough, I'll probably throw some things on the grill today or tomorrow that can get Younger Son and me through the next few days. If you have any simple recipes, send them my way!
