Relax It’s Sunday

Another Great week down.  I had a good time at work this past week, enjoyed meeting some new people, headed out to the beach, and will be going to a brunch today to round out was has been a good week.  The only downfall of this week is that there are so many things and places I want to be that I get mad when I can’t make them all.  I missed the Ales vs. Lagers at Brick Works in Smyrna DeShoot out for Soldiers in Philadelphia, and couldn’t decide which group to hang out with on the beach.  I know tough right.  We decided to hang out with a new group because we love meeting new people.  The wife had a trip to Detroit that was cancelled due to multiple planes having mechanical issues and it was probably good that she never got on one.

After the wifes Detroit trip got cancelled she was able to attend her work BBQ where IMG_3697they had some awesome food including crabs from BNB Seafood that were delicous.  This week I also had a work BBQ but didn’t get to enjoy the same level off food.  We stayed traditional with just burgers and dogs.  I love getting together with co-workers even though if half of us a faking the enjoyment of each others company.  Stop you know it’s true everyone talks about how good it is to see everyone, then you split into your groups of people you actually like, then you talk shit on each other, then someone says when the hell are we getting out of here, then at the end you hug everyone and talk about how good it was to see them again.  I don’t care I enjoy hanging out and having a good time, plus I actually like everyone there.

We rounded out the week by heading to our safe place, the Beach.  We enjoyed hanging IMG_3714our with a different crowd, meeting some new people, seeing some people that we haven’t seen in a while, and just had a great time.  I drank some awesome beers  and the wife tried to reacreate the drink she had a Chesapeake Inn the last week.  It was good but not the same.  I knew I was settled in for the day once the fishing pole was in the water, kids in the sand, and the music rocking out.  We left the house around 645 in the morning to beat any traffic that might develope along the way.  This was a good strategy becuase we got there around 8 am.  We spent the day talking to as many people as we could, drank some good drinks, and cemented some new friendships.

Today we are heading down to Grain H2O to enjoy some brunch.  I stopped there the other day after to check it out and ran in to two people I didn’t think would be there.  I sat down next to an empty plate when I found the my buddy was there doing some work for the company he owns.  As we sat there and talked about the upcoming weekend I ran into a coworker who has a greater passions for beer than myself.  Chance meetings are always cool.  He was there with a buddy just enjoying a good afternoon sitting on the deck overlooking the marina.  If you get a chance try Cucumber Crush by 10 Barrel.   If you catch us out there stop by and chat for a bit.  We love company.

Have a safe and fun 4th of July Weekend – Enjoy some freedom, fire works, and fun.

 

 

Relax It’s Sunday

Wow what a good week.  I have an unhealthy love for the summer time.  21 June marked the official beginning of summer and the unofficial beginning of good times.  We ensured that we started the weekend a little early, like Thursday night.  DP and his family came by the house, we had a great night out Friday night with an unexpected couple, met a cool Uber driver, and went to a birthday party on Saturday were I agreed to by my kid a four-wheeler.  I don’t know what I was thinking on that last part.  Nothing really notable for the work week do it being pretty quiet.

Thursday was an unexpected night were DP and the family stopped by.  DP brought over some Kona Beer’s and a sixer of Troegs Sunshine Pils.  We sat in the garage and BS’d for a while.  It’s always nice to just sit and enjoy the night with family.  We talked about the everything from highschool, to getting old.  It’s funny to look back and realize how long we have known each other.  We also confirmed out future plans of learning to play the bag pipes, getting motorcycle licenses, and we are going to fly single engine planes.  We have strong ambitions to become the most interesting people ever.

Friday night we went out to Chesapeake Inn and had a blast with a couple we don’t usually hang out with.  That of course will now change considering the amount of fun we had, it’s nice to form new friendships.  The night was filled with laughs, dancing, drinking, and just a flat out awesome time.  I did manage to time travel a bit, but did wake up in my bed.  I also had mystery vomit that took a couple of hours to locate.  It went undetected so long that I thought I made it up in my head.  My 8-year-old was the lucky winner to find it.

After brushing of the cob webs and throwing down a bloody mary, Saturday was off to a hot start.   We went over to a friend’s house who was having a birthday party for there six year old.  This was perfect because we could take the kids over and let them get wore out playing and going down the giant inflatable water slide.  Saturday turned into the day that I agreed to purchase a lot of things.  First I believe that I am going into business of renting our giant inflatable slides, and I am buying a four-wheeler for my 8-year-old.  This caused my wife to give me one of those looks.  Yeah that look that you’re doing right now, don’t judge me it sounded good when I agree to it.

Sunday is clean up day.  I decided to stay home and do some cleaning while the wife is heading out to Chesapeake Inn for a Ladies day brunch thingy.  I really didn’t know what else to call it but it’s brunch and Mimosa’s so she should have a good time.  Later today we have a meeting for Little Pro Football as DP, Adam, and myself get ready to start another season of coaching the kids.  For DP and myself we are heading into our third season now and we hope to be the favorites this year.  It is exciting watching these kids grow.  My fall should be jam-packed with football and Rylee wants to play soccer again.

All in all another great week down and some more memories created.  New friendships cemented and old ones just continue to grow.  Summer time is off and running and we going to spend it chasing good times.  Take today to sit back and reflect on a great week that was.

See You in the Future – Thee Time Traveler.

It’s a special Sunday today because it’s Fathers Day.  So sit back have some beer, tell some dad jokes, and enjoy a great day.  Hopefully the weather is great wherever you are and you can do some awesome stuff.  I am back from being off the grid for two weeks and ready to get back to work.  I enjoyed a good two weeks doing some dude type stuff and being around some really good guys.  Like Vegas thought these stories will stay where we left them.

Today I am heading over to my buddy Sean’s to enjoy some sweet family time and some awesome food.  Sean is notorious for his meat, once it’s in your mouth it’s all over.  I am preparing my body now for the potential food coma that is coming.  The night will surely end with great food, kids playing in the yard, and the adults sitting by the fire and telling awesome stories.  I can’t wait.

Going to Sean’s place is great because I missed my families reunion on Saturday.  It sucks but it was late by the time I got home and I really just wanted to be with the girls.  My oldest had a huge dance recital that I missed and I wanted to hear all about it.  Super proud of her, she is growing up way to fast.  My youngest didn’t skip a beat, she kissed me and then pushed me aside so she could finish coloring and making up an imaginary story in her head.  So cute.  Love these girls.

The wife and I sat outback and enjoyed an awesome night having a few drinks and catching up things that I missed over the last two weeks.  The girls stayed inside and played while we enjoyed each others company.  While sitting out back we talked about more things than I can remember at this point.  It was a perfect night.

I can’t wait to see what the day brings and the stories that we will talk about.  I can’t wait for the stories to send me back in time and remember moments that we tend to forget.   Take some time to sit with your family and enjoy the day.  For the Dads out there do what you like it’s your day.

Happy Fathers Day to All.

See you in the Future – Thee Time Traveler.

Relax It’s Sunday

Still off the grid but having some what of a good week.  What I will tell you is that timing is a funny thing and that Murphy’s Law will get you in the end.  The night before I left the house my washing machine nearly exploded.  My cat decided that it was going to sneak out of the house when no one was looking and spent the day outside.  I am not close enough that I can just run right home and fix these things so my wife reminds how much she hates it when I have to go away.  It’s a slightly short trip but when issues happen it adds compound interest onto the problems.  Surely something else will go bad.

So my wife had to deal with Samsung on the phone about our washer, which is five years old and was purchased at a company that has gone out of business.   F$%& You HH GREGG!  So in the end she took to social media to get recommendations on a handy man when she came across Ventura Maintenance Company.  He was able to stop by the house and notify my wife that the washer is screwed.  Depressing right, but she also went on to say how helpful he was and how professional he was.  I later contacted him to thank him and once again a super awesome guy and very humble.  If you have appliance repairs and you live in the Middletown Delaware area please get a hold of Scott Ventura of Ventura Maintenance.

My wife went about her work day the same as usual.  She rose from her slumber, angry that she has to wake up, and started getting herself ready for work.  This usually consists of going down stairs getting a glass of OJ and letting out the dog.  She then will drop some food in the tiny feeding troughs for the animals and back upstairs she goes.  Once she starts prepping herself for the day she gets the girls ready with the assistance of my 8 year old.  At some point the ninja cat decided it would be a great idea to sneak past her when she either let the dog out or back in.  Her routine is the same almost each morning and she left the house like normal.

When she arrived home after picking up the girls from school she wasn’t greeted by the hungry little feline.  This little asshole only likes us when she wants something.  immediately my wife goes into a panic.  She calls me to let me know that the cat is missing.   This cat was a gift to my daughters for christmas.  So she goes outside and shakes some food to see if she will come running.  Nope nothing.  I believe my dog was smiling at this point.  Just as she was about to give up the little hunger monster came up the steps and of course acted like nothing was wrong.  I think she should have to explain herself.

Well I hope everyone enjoys a nice relaxing Sunday and gets to spend some time with their families and enjoy life.   Hug your kids a little extra this week, without giving out a lot of detail you will just have to trust me that sometimes life isn’t fair and you should appreciate the good times when you have them.  Jeff I am so sorry for your lose.

Relax It’s Sunday

This week ends with us celebrating Memorial Day Weekend.  This is a great weekend for fiends and family to get together and enjoy a day of freedom provided by those men and women who served in our Armed Forces and gave there lives for life and liberty.  Many will argue that this weekend isn’t about bbq’s and the beach, yet as a veteran I will tell you to celebrate this weekend how ever you want, the only thing we ask is that you take a quick moment to remember why this weekend is important.  Remember those who laid the path that we now get to walk.

Memorial day weekend is a great way for America to show how free it truly is.  I love this weekend and I love seeing people get together and anytime that can happen is truly special.  I can’t speak for everyone out there but enjoy it.  Go ahead and drink  some beers, swim, talk about the good old days before fidgit spinners and rompers.  Put the phone down and flip a couple of burgers,  play volleyball or go out on a boat celebrate with a tall glass of freedom.

This weekend we headed down to the beach down to the beach to hang out with some great people.  Saturday gave us a house party at Joey Z’s.  The best was that I ran into an FullSizeRender (2)old friend that I wouldn’t have expected to see.  The notorious Pat Williams, star running back from the University of Delaware.  It was one of those moments when someone walks through the door and your like “HOLY SHIT WHAT ARE DOING HERE.”  That kind of moment.  In the end I ended up time traveling and waking up in a bed that was not mine.  Well at least for a moment I thought I was at home, but I wasn’t.

Today we relax by going out on our buddies Boat and enjoying a day on the water.  We started the morning off with Bloody Mary’s and coffee from Wawa.  Brians house is full of family.  To tell you the truth they are all friends but for me everyone is family and the saying that friends are the family you choose couldn’t be more accurate.  The Funky White Boy and family are in the house as well.   My morning has now moved outside on the deck relaxing with my second Bloody Mary and working on this here blog you are reading.  It’s mornings like this that make you appreciate life, family relaxing, and not a care in the world.  Damn it feels good to be an American.

Another week has snuck by and now it’s time to chill and relax.  This week was uneventful for the most part.  Once Monday was over I already couldn’t wait for Friday to get here.  The best part of the week is that Mothers day is coming this weekend.  We also finalized a few events that we will be attending in the near future, and I worked on a shirt and hat combo for the website.  Looking back now maybe some things did get done.

Mothers day is a great day to take some time and appreciate the mothers out there and for all the hard work that they do throughout the year.  I got my wife two tickets to the Football Festival for Women at Lincoln Financial Field.  I was hoping she would be excited but her reaction was way better than I thought.  I got her two tickets so that she could take another excellent mom with her.  Check out the link provided it’s only their second time hosting the event.  You get to meet players, coaches,   and win tons of prizes.  Can’t wait to see what happens.

Saturday our soccer games got cancelled on Saturday due to rain, sucks for the kids Porkbut it allowed mye some time to do some cooking.  Got a big ass piece pork and smoked that fool.  We also made some avocado deviled eggs which I’ll post in the NOM NOM NOM later this week.  I also picked up some side dishes from the Amish farmers market, philly potato salad and Amish maccaroni salad.  This shit is good.

Saturday night we hit up the 302 Wrestling event at the NUR Temple.  We went to support the Funky White Boy a Delaware Legend, or at least to us a legend.  They did a great job a hyping the event as if his retirement was coming.  Nope got us, he still continues.  If you haven’t ever been to one of these local wrestling events you have to go.  Pack the kids up and enjoy.  The children get sucked in immediately and they will have a blast.

I got up early this morning to get some fresh flowers and coffee for the wife.  I made breakfast for everyone hoping this would wake them up.  This ploy took a while to be effective but it worked.  I put together a breakfast bowl for the wife, it consisted of eggs, potatoes O’Brien, sausage gravy, scrapple, and a piece of bacon.  It’ one of her favorites.  This being mothers day makes all that much better.  Time to sit and relax and enjoy the morning.

Relax It’s Sunday

It’s Sunday so relax a bit, maybe kick you feet up and take a deep breath and just enjoy being around awesome people.  Take the day to appreciate those who are close to you in your home or just in your life.  Delaware took a heavy hit with the recent death of one of their beloved State Troopers.  In such tragic moments you can only hope that the community finds a way to pull together.  I won’t bother you with the details of what happened. Just know that a good man lost his life just doing his job, and a family and community are devastated over the acts of one man.  A terrible situation all the way around.   Instead I’ll give you somethings to think about.  I don’t always follow these to a tee but I put in a good effort.

  1.  Put aside petty arguments, time doesn’t stop.  Every minute lost cannot be regained.
  2. Hugs never killed anyone.
  3. Say I love you when ever you get the chance.  It should never lose it’s power, if it does something is wrong.
  4. Change can only be made by you.  Stop waiting for others to change your problems.
  5. Stop wasting time worrying about other peoples problems.
  6. If it doesn’t make you happy it’s probably not for you.
  7. Stop waiting for tomorrow.
  8. The only way to learn is to fail.
  9. Before you criticize someone look in the mirror.
  10. Sometimes saying nothing is the most powerful thing.

Relax It’s Sunday

You know when it is Eagles vs Cowboys it is difficult to relax.  These games mean so much more then just another football game.  These teams hate each other.  Well at least I would like to think that they do.  As far as relaxing goes I am doing my best.  Whipped up an awesome meal for today’s football games, and I have a couple of new beers that I am working through.  I’ll post the recipe in NOM NOM NOM, and talk about the beers in my DOW,  Drinks of the week.  I didn’t get a chance to post last week, because the new job position took a lot of time and I wasn’t able to get to the posts.  This will happen again at some point.

The last two weeks have been a blur, very busy with work, school, football, and just normal family life evens.  I blinked and two weeks went by.  Unreal sometimes, like when your driving and all of a sudden your like how the hell did I get home.  Yeah it was like that.  One of the coolest things that we did, that we do every year, is we went an picked pumpkins.  They lasted about a week, and then began to melt on my steps.  nasty.  Now I got pumpkin shit all over my steps.

Today though it is chill time, cook eat and watch football.   Last night DP and his family came over and the Carsley’s stopped in.  We ate drank and talked about the past, present, and future.  We stepped back in time to 2007, 2008, as well as about  twenty years from now, discussing the wedding plans for my oldest.  Shit I don’t think so.  Great couple of weeks, with plenty of nice days.  I look forward to what this week is going to bring.

Coming to you a little late today but for good reason’s.  One we went pumpkin picking  colemans-1 today at Coleman’s Christmas Tree farm.  We go here every year and the girls love it.  For the last two years I have had my oldest fighting me on whether or not there is really a Gorilla Duck that lives on the farm and eats pumpkins.  This year I added to the myth of Gorilla Duck in that he sucks all the pumpkin spice out of the pumpkins, that’s why some of them are white in color.  After Pumpkin picking I cut the grass and then it was football time.  So here I am getting ready to do some homework and thought I would get this out there.  I think I have like three followers, but I don’t want to let anyone down.

Coleman’s Christmas tree farm is a fun experience and really only takes an hour or two out of your day to get outside and enjoy the day.  It’s better than watching my kids play on Kindles and Iphones.   I really can’t stand that.  We took some good picks of the girls and got a few good pumpkins.  Later this week we will work on carving them.  I can’t tell you enough how much I love this time of the year. colemans-2 So onto Gorilla Duck, he is a big gorilla with a duck-bill that lives on the Coleman’s Farm and eats pumpkins.  My oldest will tell you that he doesn’t exist, yet I catch her looking for him.  He is just a long line of imaginative things that get cooked up in my mind.

This week went quick, I did a couple normal things but it really didn’t pick up until Friday night.  We went over to DP’s house and hung out by the fire telling stories and talking about the old times and times to come.  It was great and extremely relaxing.  Saturday I took some of the Afternoon to go see my buddy Tal and the Selfie King IPA beer release at Bellefonte Brewing Company here in Delaware.  They are just a number of Craft beer joints that continue to open in Delaware.  It is a great time to be in the beer industry and in Delaware.  It’s an even better time to be a fan of beer. bellefonte-2

Currently it’s almost 7 o’clock, for those of you that are a few hours behind the night looks great.  This week will be a busy one at work, I hope to pick up some sour beers this week.  I have heard good things.  Our new neighbor has moved in so I can’t wait to see what they are like.  I don’t know if we should take anything over or not, but I will probably do something.  I’m thinking a home depot card or something.  Any way I look forward to what tomorrow brings.

I don’ t seem to have a lot for this week.  The week was pretty quiet for the most part.  Hold on a sec………. Sorry my two-year old thought that it was the perfect time to have a melt down about brushing her teeth.  Well  I guess it’s the Crib for you.  I can do that because I am a man, and adult.  I mean I feel a little bad, wait no f$^# that noise.  I know I know, I will grab her in a minute, these girls will be the death of me.  Anyway back to this week. Hurricane Matthew seems to have taken a path away from the northeast which is awesome, we got our butts kick in youth football, and I made some awesome food this week.  Best part is I am sitting and having a Miller Lite and getting ready to watch some football.  I love Sundays, we sat down as a family this morning and had a big breakfast, turkey bacon, scrapple, pancakes, crepes, and a little scrambled eggs.

I did feel terrible yesterday, my girls have had high fevers this week which lead me to cancelling on two events.  This first was a house-warming for my cousin, so proud he finally got his own place.  The second was DP Killas’ son’s birthday party.  I hate missing anything that involves DP Killa’s son or Sean’s Girls.  Sucks.  So the fevers may have caused us to stay in but we made brownies, and awesome pasta dish,img_5179 and the Stuffed Pepper Soup in the crock pot now.  My oldest help me make everything.  I could spend all day in the kitchen.
I look forward to the upcoming week, I got the Selfie King IPA release on the 15th of October, Pumpkin picking next week, lunch with the Selfie King on Thursday, and hopefully some new beers.  The Eagles are looking good and should pull down another win this week.  I hope everyone else has a great week.
