I know I’ve been a bit quiet for the past few days and some of you have messaged to make sure I’m OK. Yes, I’m good, as matter of fact, I’m GREAT!
Jimmy had the day off on Friday to go to traffic court, on the way back we did some exploring, there were a couple of local places he wanted to show me that he had come across while driving the big ass truck.
We found an amazing side of the road carry out place for down-home southern cooking, OMG! There weren’t any tables to eat at, so we went down the road about 10 miles and stopped at Lu Mill vineyard. All I can say is that experience was wonderful… they have a large covered patio with tables and the guy in the tasting room/gift shop said we were more than welcome to picnic there.
After devouring the food … the meatloaf and mac n cheese I had was Om nom, nom, NOM!, we went inside and tasted some of the most delicious wines I’ve had in a very long time. After tasting 6 different wines and 2 “mixed drinks” made with wine, we walked away from the gift shop with 2 bottles of sweet wine, one white and one red, a bottle of peach cider and a bottle of grape cider.
Before we left, we drove around the vineyard and checked out the cabins they have for rent as well as the ponds where they permit the public to fish in… ya’ll it’s TWO DOLLARS per person PER DAY! and since it’s private property, no fishing license is required. Jimmy is in HEAVEN!!
From there we stopped to check out a place that advertises fresh seafood including shrimp, scallops, and crab. Let’s just say, I was under impressed. The shrimp was the only thing that was fresh, the scallops and crab were frozen, and the price was ridiculous. It was higher than Fresh Market!
Yesterday, Saturday, was a full day of running errands and getting things accomplished. With only one vehicle and Jimmy needing to drive it to work each day, I usually run the household errands on Saturday even if I have to take him to work that day.
Today, it’s puttering around the house kind of day, there’s at least one load of laundry to do … gotta get those work clothes washed, LOL! And I’m hoping I can get Jimmy to help me set up the “table” I’m going to be using for my crafts. Tanya found what looks to be a panel from a large desk in an empty apartment last week, and for now, I plan to use cinder blocks for the legs.
I have no complaints about my life, in fact, I’d say things are pretty great … <3 <3 <3
