I took an unexpected break last month from the blog. This probably isn't the best space for it, but the last month has been filled with angst, exhaustion, gloom, and just overall depression. Unfortunately, my mood severely affects this blog. There have been days that I am lucky to make it out of bed and my pajamas to get to my part time job. Other days haven't been so lucky and I have foregone clothes other than sleepwear, real meals, and even the occasional shower. My husband has been incredibly patient as he tries to distract me with a day trip here and a long weekend there. I hope I can get back to a regular posting schedule as soon as possible, but I keep waiting for good news and instead the news seems bleaker by the day. The nearly non-stop rain for the last several weeks hasn't helped and I remain gray, cold, and gloomy.
We took a quick day trip to Napa last month. My husband had a business meeting there and we combined it to make it a weekend away for us. It rained the entire weekend, but we got to visit a new to us winery, Chandon, as well as a couple of faves like Robert Mondavi, and V. Sattui. It was great to drink some bubbly and pick up some bottles of tried and true favorites. We meant to have a great steak dinner at Rutherford Grill and then neither of us ordered the steak.
