Had a great Sunday with the extended family. Gathered at the tree farm, rode four-wheelers, grilled, talked a bit. Cousin passed his board exams, I'm thrilled for him. Tried some artisan cupcakes and admit they're better than their reputation around these parts (i.e., Satan in small paper cups). More importantly, I survived solo-parent weekend and now just a week remains until the wife is back home.
Also: grilled more chicken, smoked another pork end, cooked beans and have some quick-cook veggies ready for this weeknight's dinners. Funny, we fare better when the Mrs. is away and I'm doing the planning.
