Yesterday I had a long wait for our company to awaken so we could spend the day visiting and preparing for the wine tasting evening they were presenting in our community. It was worth it. All of us are so tired and the day got off to a slow start, but we made up for that as the day went along.
The culmination of the great day was the wine tasting/food pairing event in the evening. A friendly, cozy group of wine aficionados gathered together and we had the time of our lives. The particular wines presented (some Luzons, the best Eikendal red and so on and so on...) were fabulous and the pairings with chicken or goat cheese or mixed greens or bacon wrapped prunes or fresh figs and asparagus sprayed with lavender vinegar, made for lots of good conversation throughout the evening.
We headed to bed just after 1am and of course, upon waking at 7am to get to church in our other town, felt completely exhausted and in that state we are scurrying around to get ready to go. I am jamming my breakfast d0wn while typing this post.
It has been a wonderful weekend.......and no, Auntie P, we are not hung over, just tired. At a tasting of 5 wines you don't consume more than 1 to 1.5 glasses in total, so stop worrying okay? All is well in Church Land.
