Hey Guys!

I haven’t written in a very long time. This summer seems to have gotten away from me. So what’s up with you guys? Here’s what’s new with me:

• We just came back from New Hampshire where Jess completed her first triathlon. Can you believe it? My wife, the triathlete! She did great! The race was a 1/3rd-mile swim, a 15-mile bike ride, and a 3-mile run. Her whole goal was to finish and not be last. While she was near the end, she was definitely NOT last, and I’m very proud of her. Here’s a pic taken of her and Tiffany when they finished: (I had the medals made for them!)

• We joined a CSA this summer. Read the above article for some interesting information, but basically it’s just where we pay a farmer up front in the spring, and then all summer and into the fall we get farm-fresh produce. It’s been great! Every monday we get a load of fresh veggies!

• Kieran is cute. What else is new. He’s looking more like a little boy and less like a baby every day.

• I’m working “casually” for August and September. That means that I work 29 hours a week, which works out to full days Monday—Wednesday, then a half-day at home on Thursday and off on Friday. It’s been sweet!! Although I don’t have health insurance yet, so I’m hoping to go full-time in October.

• We’re thinking about building a house. That’s all… just thinking.

So that’s about it for now. What’s up with you guys?

Love, Ty

P.S. Randomly, here’s a picture of Andy and Lego Chewbacca at FAO Schwartz during our visit a few weeks ago:

    Oh, yeah, and I brewed a new beer for the first time since we moved. It’s a Hazelnut Java Stout. Mmmmm. Smokey, nutty, dark, and lovely. It should be ready to taste in a few days. I tried it when it was flat and it was mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmm good.

    Glad you’re enjoying your summer. :-)

    Not a lot around here. Just finished frisbee.

    The big thing is Mark returned from Hawaii over the weekend. And he brought his cat, so now we have three new “people” in the house. Martin’s not so excited about the cat.

    Two quick beer updates:

    • The Hazelnut Java Stout is a winner! I brought a big bottle to Andy’s place when we visited this weekend, and we both enjoyed it immensely. A success!!

    • I brewed a new beer this weekend: a Hoegaarden clone beer. I don’t usually clone beers outright… I tend to make a little tweak or adjustment to make it my own. But this time I want to see how close my homebrew comes to the real thing. Should be ready mid-October.
