It's been quite a while since I shared a general "Life Lately" post so now is a good time to catch up. I'm still recovering from the long holiday weekend and a cold that doesn't seem to want to go away. I've been coughing for almost three weeks now and I'm scheduled to see my doctor next week, hopefully they can tell me just what the heck is going on with me.
Anyway, as we've done the last couple of years, Mike and I stayed in the city Memorial Day weekend. It was pretty busy but still had time to just relax and enjoy the nice river breeze in an overall hot and humid city weekend.
We were smack in the middle of Fleet Week so we got to to check out the USS Bataan which was in New York for the week. I think it's so cool that they allow people to check out the ships for free during Fleet Week.
While I've said previously that I was gonna try to work less in my 40s because my 30s just flew by, guess what? I've been working a lot! However this time around, I'm really enjoying my work.
Another cool thing I did recently was attend a media event for Myron Mixon's new book launch, Myron Mixon's BBQ Rules at The Brooklyn Brewery. Not only did I get to meet the man, but I got to enjoy his delicious food!
A lot of his food...like two servings of Collard Greens (and I don't eat Collard Greens!!) I really like the book too. It is unlike any other cook book I've read. He gets really deep into the history of BBQ and what his father taught him growing up. I got to attend as part of the Rogue Social team and it was pretty fun. I hope I get to go to more.
