My stew is bubbling away on the stove. Right now it's the meat, marrow bones and soup mix (barley etc). Later on I'll add carrots, parsnips, potatoes and onion. Rather simple, but we like it.

I was at VPC all day. I only had a couple meetings, and it's a little quieter up there, so I was able to catch up on a lot of my paperwork from the last couple weeks. The only thing I dislike is that it takes 45 minutes to drive in rush hour.

We finally played a decent team in Ultimate on Wednesdays. We won 17-14, although our fundamentals (especially on offense) are still not so great. We clog the throwing lanes, can't stack worth a bean, and we make poor choices on throws. Most of the players on the team can throw and catch really well, which makes up for (also likely the cause of) our lack of strategy. We had seven guys which was too many. (A couple guys didn't want to rotate to have maximum six guys a game, so we're all playing in every game).

The forecast keeps on changing for this weekend. I am hoping to build the railing between the houses and finish stripping the paint on the middle rear post. Then I'm just hoping for one more day with the temperature over 10C so that I can prime everything before winter. (If I'm really lucky, then I'll get two nice days and I can paint as well, but I think it's too late in the season).

Well I better go get the vegetables ready for my stew.
