The first week of July was pretty good! The restaurant was closed all week for new coat of paint and some much needed new booths. While I had to work a little, it’s been work at a relaxed rate! Amy worked from home all week also, so we got in some great hanging out together time.
On Sunday I had a great ride with my friends, Ironman course to Shea and back. The whole way back we had cloud cover, really took the bite out of the heat! After that I had to do my end of the month inventory and put all the liquor and wine from behind the bar into the liquor closet. I went in for a few hours on Monday, knock out a few things and lock up after the booth guys were finished for the day.
On Tuesday we went to the Dbacks game. While they got their butts kicked by the Padres we had a fun night! We drove up to the Draw 10 to grab some pregame food, then rode the Light Rail down to the game. I had gotten the tickets from one of my wine purveyors, I new they were good seats but not exactly where they were.
This ended up being our view:
As I said they go worked over pretty good, the highlight of the game was the Dbacks grand slam! Other than that and a great double play, they played pretty poorly. We headed out during the top of the 8th, hopped a pretty crowed light rail train back towards the truck.
Got in a great ride on the 4th. It was cloudy all morning and even rained a bit on us, a nice change from the oppressive heat! We got in 36 nice miles around the house, the route is a good mix of hills and flats. Nice to have a quality riding area so close.
The next weekend we had to get the restaurant cleaned up, back together and ready for service. We had the whole staff in for about 3 hours and got it ready to go, the booths turned out great and the place looks really nice! After that it was back to normal work, but only for 2 weeks. My vacation starts on Saturday, High Altitude Tri Training up in Flagstaff! Four days of camping out, riding, running and swimming up in the mountains. Maybe we’ll even bag a peak!
