Borack, screw tops, beer, guitar, dinner, and lemon bars

Today we have a new president. Leif woke up super early this morning. We laid in bed as long as we could get away with then got up. We popped on the boob toob and low and behold the inauguration was on. We stood and watched as Barack Obama nervously was sworn in. It gave me shivers. Then they played it over and over and over all day long. 

My  neighbor brought me up a bag of empty beer bottles for me to use to bottle my beer. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that I couldn’t use any of them because they were screw top beers. And besides, I bottled my beer a week ago. As a matter of fact, I decided to pop one open tonight to see if I failed or not. As I popped the top, I heard a satisfying “psssst”. Awesome. So I then tasted it. It had a nice slight molasses flavor to it. Yum. I’ve succeeded in making my first batch of beer. Oh yeah. I think I can get used to this. I’m going to chill 6 of them and take them downstairs to my neighbors house along with my guitar and amp. He may have brought me screw top bottles, but he put forth an effort. And he plays guitar. That’s good enough for me. 🙂 

Dinner was real good tonight. I’m not sure why. It was just really good. It was what I didn’t know I wanted. And to top it off, Holly made some lemon bars as well. Oh man. I don’t think today could have went any better.
