Just a perfect weekend

Had just about as good of a weekend as I can have.

Preseason football started. Which isn’t all that great but it does mean we’re one step closer to actual football. Had some good meals and tried some chorizo tacos at a Mexican place in our neighborhood. I’ve been putting diced potatoes into our tacos when we make them at home and it was good to see a restaurant doing the same. Made me feel like I know what I’m doing, at least with tacos anyway.

I read a really good book. Started in earnest on Friday and powered through it during the weekend. If you like Chuck Palahniuk or wanted to check him out, I really enjoyed Lullaby. This was especially gratifying because I started reading Shelby Foote’s 6000-ish page (literally), three volume Civil War anthology and got about 450 pages into the first volume and then just petered out. Reading the other book was just what I needed to dive back into the Civil War.

But perhaps best of all, the Yankees swept the Red Sox in a four-game homestand. I can’t tell you how much I hate the Red Sox. I hated them as a kid. I hate them as an adult. My parents who emigrated from another country hate them as well. Even my dog hates them. They’re that unlovable.

If only all my weekends could go like this…
