Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?"

Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit, we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing...

Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something...

And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.

  1. Tim makes his own beer and he loves it. It takes awhile but I think it is worth the wait. Hope you guys are doing well, miss you.

  2. I miss you, too! I remember from our last visit that Tim's home brew was quite good! I am really looking forward to enjoying the fruits of Jon's new hobby. :)

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day!



So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

Is Lying Such a BAD Thing?

So do you know how we said we would never have a mortgage again? Yeah, well, I guess we lied. Just over two years since we short sold our house in Phoenix, we read the tea leaves and determined that a mortgage is just exactly what we should get our hands on. Can I get a woot woot for debt?!

Why? Why in the world would we consider going into debt again? The boring reasons are the extremely robust rental market in Fort Collins (the rental vacancy rate is 3%), boring old math (it is currently cheaper to own than rent) and the fact that we love-love-love it here and have no plans to ever leave. But really, we just want to paint the damn walls a different color. Do we need another reason?

So we are buying a foreclosure (oh, the irony), close enough to bike to town but in a rural part of Fort Collins (we are on a quarter acre and are zoned as a farm). We can't wait to be surrounded by silence and Republicans.

Here is our new mountain chalet in all of its glory. We have some work to do.
