Mr. August and a Weekend Recap...

Senator Odin
Mr. August himself.
My baby's FAMOUS folks.  With August comes Mr. Odin's time to shine as Mr. August for the ABMC's Belgian Malinois Rescue 2011 Calendar.  He won the Rescue's annual contest with these two pictures: Senator Odin and "I have a dream to eat duck".  He has been basking in his own glory at the dog friendly winery we went to this weekend, the dog park, and at obedience class tonight.  The human folk of our family spent the weekend as follows...

Odin has a dream
Post crazy work week decompressing... some Rioja, fresh bread, and St. Andre while watching Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations.
New DIY project to amp up the trays.  Pictures to come later.
Roasting at the Nats vs. Mets game on Sunday.  Don't hate me America, but I don't think I'm going to become a baseball fanatic anytime soon.  Let's just say that I'll be sticking to watching soccer. 
So apparently there are horses under I-395 in SE.  We discovered them walking back to the metro after the baseball game.  Always new adventures and places to be found in DC.
Newest concoction... Tri-Citrus Twister... lemon, lime, and blood orange with lemon vodka.
Out to pizza with good friends from college.
After a day in the sun at the vineyards on Saturday, an 8 am game and 5 hours baking in the sun during the baseball game on Sunday, I was wiped and slept for 10.5 hours.  Why is is that whenever you sleep more you are more tired?  How were y'alls weekends?



  1. I was at the Nats game on Sunday too!! I wish we had known you were there! You're right, it was insanely hot- we spent half the game in the Red Porch bar until our seats were shaded...

    Horses under the highway? Interesting. Looking forward to seeing your DIY steps. How is it possible I am always hungry and thirsty for a nice cold one and reading your posts, so many delicious dishes! Glad you had a great weekend.
