Weekend Edition: Labor Day
We had perfect weather over the Labor Day weekend and everyone in the neighborhood was outside enjoying it. We grilled on both Saturday and Sunday evenings, one night over a wood fire that we built to roast green chile outside. Ah, green chile roasting-- its a sure sign of fall, and therefore a fitting activity for the last official weekend of summer.
Our property is relatively large for an urban area, yet this is the loudest neighborhood I've ever lived in. Sound just carries. As a result the soundtrack for many of our outdoor activities was provided by the neighbors. First live music from the neighbors to the north, and then country and oldies from the neighbors to the east. It could only be illustrated by a video.
