Craig and I had dinner at Patio's on Friday evening... enchiladas w/ beef and onion for me. huevos rancheros for Sweets. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the cool evening air and we saw the judge from the Wire... I was going to take a pic 'cause I don't give a f*%k, but Craig was having none of it. Next time.
On Saturday, the 2 of us slept in and then headed outside to paint the chicken coop. We were both hot and grumpy, but after a little flirting and flashing of body parts, we we're just fine. I'll post some pics of the coop and the girls soon. They're doing really well and they seem to like their new home, that makes us all very happy. The only family member who doesn't care for his new sisters is Bombay.
He just can't help himself. When he gets around the chicks, first off he has to be held, and secondly he shakes and tries to get free while making his "i'm gonna get you" grunts. No matter how many times we tell him he'll always be our favorite baby, he still tries to get him some chickens.
Sunday, Craig, Angus and I had breakfast at Loyola's (so delish as always!), then headed back home. With the heat and all the food we had, the 4 of us had to lay down in the family bed and rest a little. "Rest" with all 4 of us usually consists of us holding Bombs and telling him how sweet and precious he is. I know.
Later, Angus and I drove over to the westside to meet up with my sister, nieces and nephew for some swimming. Why the westside for swimming? The pool we like to go to is the only outdoor pool that we know of w/ a diving board. Also, Craig used to take tennis lessons there w/ his bro back in the day. Cu-ute! Then we watched a classic~ National Lampoon's Vacation as a family. And we laughed. A lot. We've been trying to introduce Angus to all sorts of 80's classics. He seems to enjoy them, after the intial "80's? Yuck!" factor.
*Today is alright... hot as hell outside. I think I'll head over to Sonic and get a cherry limeade and enjoy the summertime indoors for the next few hours.
we got our chicks this weekend and they are so adorable...
here they are: welcome home! left to right: isotope, hazel & huevolina...
hazel is the one with some brown on her little feathers and she's a langshan. isotope and huevolina (lina) are jersey giants. craig, angus and i are still learning about our chickens, so i'll post more info as we learn!
Last night we watched the Celtics beat the Lakers. It wasn't by much, but it was a great game. There are a handful of televised sports that I can stand, basketball is definitely one of them. It could be all of the cute boys running around.
This weekend we're (hopefully!) going to get some chickens... the coop is almost done! Craig has been working hard and it's very exciting to know that we'll soon be living with and raising some chickens.
it started off with a cute pug taking over my pillow this morning... he loves it.
we got to sleep in a little on account of all the hard work that it takes to build a chicken coop. yes! we're getting chickens and craig has been working so hard on building their chateau. i helped a little bit yesterday, you know with the heavy lifting because i'm strong as a man. really, i am.
then, after a little *sexy time* with my #1 guy, we had el modelo. yes, that's the 2nd time in 2 weeks and it kicked major asses once again. and it's so much fun driving down to that part of town... so many crazies.
craig and i also watched strangers with candy this afternoon... hilarious as always. amy sedaris is fabulously insane. love her.
tonight for dinner we're (craig) is grilling up some steaks and we're going to watch game 2 of the b-ball game... i like sweaty guys running around and cursing. should be fun.
Yesterday afternoon Craig and I rode our bikes all over the neighborhood and it was so much fun. We rode (all over) to CNM to vote, to the Coop for some cheese and veggies, and to the Smith's to get stuff for soups. And to see all the crazies that seem to be attracted to that place. Like flies on shit.
We also had delicious Il Vicino for dinner... I had a pizza(carmelized onions, portobellos, capicolla ham, goat cheese, hot oil and rosemary) and Craig had a salad(greens, artichoke hearts, gorgonzola, walnuts, egg, tomato, and chicken). It was good. So good. Of course we shared... and by share, I mean I ate almost all of my pizza and a lot of Sweets' salad.
We also got to watch Weeds: season 3, disc 1 and it was mighty exciting! I'm looking forward to watching more this evening. Gosh, I aspire to look as hot as Nancy Botwin when I'm her age... I should put the pizza down, yes?
today, however, is not so bad. i had a few days off last week to prepare for the arts + crafts show i was a part of this weekend. it was a blast, btw, and i met a ton of awesome folk, craig & angus were sweet and brought me lunch and i sold a (tree) painting, a collage on canvas with paint, some photos + cards and some other stuff which made me happy! all in all it was really fun, looking forward to doing it again sometime!
yesterday was a nice and relaxing day at home with the boys, we didn't do a whole lot but cook. we made a DELICIOUS pot of beans ( i swear, i love beans more every day!), corn bread (i made it for the 1st time and it was yummy! craig usually is the one who makes it), collard greens w/ bacon+onion, homemade mac+cheese(frozen from last time, but still homemade) and some fried-ass chicken. Damn, that was some good chicken. anyhoo, back to mondays... or today, really. it's going by a little slowly, but looking forward to this evening... the boys and i are going to a game @ isotopes park, and we're riding our bikes ~ our gang, the crusty jugglers will rule the streets, so beware! too bad sagwah can't go... he'll be so sad. anyhow, going to take a break w/ lori and walk around the school and talk about the shenanigans i missed friday night at a work party... good times.
