a tasty compromise

After I finished work yesterday–which was only a blessed two hours in the late morning–we had lunch, showered, got Baby Genius clothed, fed, and nursed, and we headed to one of our favorite places in our little corner of wine country. It’s a sparkling winery atop a hill looking over the valley. We are club members there, so they serve us full glasses of sparkling wine–out on the veranda, overlooking the valley. They bring us little bits of cheese and tasty spicy almonds.

So this is what we did yesterday.  We each had two glasses of sparkling wine, nibbled on cheese, enjoyed the sun, the breeze, and the birds, and let BG play with a tasting menu, which made him laugh. The outting didn’t solve any problems, but it certainly was a nice respite. And honestly, it was a thousand times better than the little fantasy I had yesterday.

    Don’t underestimate the importance of those calm happy moments. I think they keep the scarier thoughts at bay.

    I think I know that winery and if it is the one I think it is, a day there would certianly solve most of my problems, big and small (or at least make me forget them for the day). Glad you had a moment there.

  5. That sounds just lovely! I hope it helped.
