I had great intentions of a great, thorough update today, given my lack of a submission last week. But it’s a holiday, and you know what that means!! Matter of fact it doesn’t mean a whole heck of a lot, there’s about an 85% chance I’ll never get out of the house. It’s cold, everything is closed, what’s the point. Oh bother.
And at the end of the day, we didn’t really do much the last few weeks. We’ve been quite busy with, well, un-fun stuff. It’ll take an upturn when the weather consistently warms up, I’m sure. Or I hope at least. Saturday was the one nice day of the weekend, and we took full advantage. We waited until it got up to 65 or so, put the top down on the car, and went to Amador for a little wine tasting. We were actually headed towards Sutter Creek, but some friends sent us a text from Amador so we changed course. We hit Turley, Scott Harvey, and Wilderrotter with them, which are some of our favorites in that area. Mostly we were in it for the drive, which worked out just spectacularly. Meanwhile, young Quinn was back at the house alone with his friend Renfield, who we were watching for the weekend. Leaving those two clowns alone in the house is always a dicey proposition, they can really cause some mischief for not being 30 lbs of dog combined. So, we kept it to a short day. Luckily, the house was still standing when we returned.
