It was one of those weekends that you could smell Fall coming. It was windy, and the sun kept playing hide and seek. This was the last triathlon of the season for me, so I wanted it to be a perfect ending to a triathlon season. The wind blew the buoy’s so hard they came untied and where traveling faster than a speed boat to the other side of the lake. So with several hundred people chasing runaway buoy’s, they canceled the swim. We did have a good bike ride and run, and then on the way home Whole Foods fueled us back up.

Rain Barrel

15 September 2008 - 12:09

Ready Made magazine’s garden challenge was the perfect encouragement that we needed to put in a rain barrel in our court yard. I picked up an old Jack Daniels barrel on my way back from a triathlon in Tennessee. Now we have healthy happy plants that are fed with whiskey charcoal infused rain water. The warm aroma a sweet whiskey came from the barrel as we drilled the whole for the spicket.
