David and I have been collecting/sampling wine for several years. We've been going to Northampton Wines since we've discovered the enjoyment of wine. In fact, we were regulars once a week, for a while before Grace was born - and even while I was preggers. You ought to have seen me, all 63 extra lbs of me, drinking a non-alcolholic beer sitting at the bar in the upscale wine cafe in a glass - and getting TONS of stares from the snobbys.
Anyway, we kept going when Grace was an infant, and when she was crawling, etc. Well, until she started roaming the place and making Richard nervous (he's one of the owners). Richard knew we would watch her carefully and knows us pretty well. So, Grace is almost 2 1/2 now, and most of the time the only chance we go is when she's at Grandma's. So, we take full advantage of it. And, we did tonight... Now, I must say - David and I love Fine wine. We drink it for enjoyment and to try to figure out what it's nose is like/what tastes come of it. We're not the drunk types. We don't drink crap wine (not worth our money)... we like to smell it, taste it, enjoy it. And, we're lucky enough, that every time we go in NH, we seem to get to taste some really fine wine!(not on our dime - :-) Tonight was no exception...
So, after several glasses of wine, David and I returned home - got our stupid uniforms ready for reserves tomorrow, and we're sitting on our porch in long PJ's with both our laptops enjoying wine (good daily wine D'Arenberg - Footbolt Shiraz), and an (ok) cigar, and reading YOUR blogs. Hehe.
We have reserves and a triathlon for David in Columbia, SC on sunday!!! Sure, we'll be getting online at some point.
My leg is feeling better, still tight and I have a massage appt on monday at 11:00 (with no happy ending).
Have a wonderful weekend and good luck to all you out there that have races, (I stole this from Marcy!). Seriously, have a blast!!!!
