Man I wanted to barbecue today. I have been waiting all week to get my grill on and when the morning came I got all kinds of excited at the prospect of eating seared and seasoned beef cooked over an open fire. Apparently the weather had different plans.
The day started out gloomy and cold, but I have seen that before and was holding out hope that I could actually end up BBQing later in the day. But the stupid fog bank never lifted and I ended up spending the entire day wanting grilled meat and getting nothing at all resembling grilled meat. Crap.
And no, I can’t grill tomorrow because I will be at a party all day for my nephew. So Monday better be my day for grilling because Memorial Day weekend just isn’t the same without some fired up meat.
My wife’s cousin that lives in San Francisco is going to be moving to Seattle at the end of the year. To celebrate this move (yes, it is a good thing) they held a barbecue at my wife’s parents house today. They could not have picked a better day to old this gathering either.
The weather was absolutely beautiful today. It was sunny with a slight breeze. It was warm but not hot. It was just awesome. Actualy, it was perfect for a gathering of family for food and fellowship.
The burgers were awesome, the appetizers were awesome, the beer was awesome, the wine was awesome.
I mean really, there was not a thing wrong with this day. The kids had a great time, the adults had a great time. It was just an all around wonderful day. I wish it could have lasted longer.
And I really wish I would have found my sister’s truck keys. It has been almost a week now. And the only reason I am thinking about them now is that last Sunday when I left my in-law’s house I had them.
Oh well, at least the day was good.
