Brewery is moving slow as the girls and I are spending time at the local pool and doing home improvements. This weekend I hope to put in a new kitchen sink and faucet for Cheryl. They girls are enjoyin homebrew rootbeer floats made with native North Dakota honey. I really like it as well.

We are also planning to start our garden indoors this year. I should be setting up our seedlings this week. I'm excited about growing my own hops this year.

We have patterned a couple of pheasants to our yard this winter. A few males and one big rooster. The neighbors where kind enough to give us some corn so we put that out.

We also have five deer that frequent the house. Two large bucks that visit the back yard and a nice female with her two young in the front yard.

I have also been seeing a lot more bald eagles in the area. The geese should start migrating back anytime now. It will be exciting to see the first one.

Here is the Northern Casey wanted to catch today. We also caught some perch and bluegill.

Here is a picture of the outside for those who requested.
