fresh start!

5:45 am

good Monday everyone!

i am feeling very blessed this morning!

we had a wonderful vacation. our time with Jay was great. 

while he was at work, Mr D and i just kicked back and slept in until 7.

we were able to visit a few wineries on  the journey  to and from Boise.  

my favorite was not a new winery, and while i usually focus on the red's,

this time my taste buds grabbed Barnard Griffin's 2009 reserve Roussanne. 

   i have my mind set to crack some Dungeness with butter and French bread,

the  Roussanne will be a lovely accoutrement.

the other wine that i chose was their reserve 2009 Syrah ~ Port.

a perfect dessert to sip by the fire on a warm Summer evening. 


while shopping for towels for Jay's bathroom, i happened upon a sweet deal

on a piece of copper cookware. it replaced two pieces of my old stuff!

(that's how i sold the "must /need" to Mr D. ~ less is more!)

he's a good  sport! : )

Mr D worked in the yard most of yesterday, while i caught up with laundry

and cleaned inside.  we made a beautiful last night of vacation dinner.

this morning, my little commuter Corolla is waiting to take

me to workout and back to the work day.

(the squirrels have already been digging in the flower beds.)

here comes the sun! have a great week!

  10. Lynn, I just wanted to say "Thank You" so much for the fabulous wine that you two brought back for me on your trip. It was so fun listening to
    "Mr D" talk about Jay and all the fun you had tripping through the vineyards. I heard about the furniture shopping too! I asked if you found a couch for yourselves but he said no. Thank you again, it will be yummy and I have been waiting to try that one so I'm triple excited. Love reading your blog daily and seeing all your pics.
