It’s Monday and I’m playing catch-up with several online activities, along with paperwork. But I did want to take a little time out and share a few links that caught my interest recently. First up is that great info-graphic from MissouriWine.org. Manic Mondays sometimes just need an easy dinner, and now you have a guide to figure out what type of Missouri wine to pair with your pizza.
Robert Parker is a well-known wine critic with at least 35o,000 wine tastings under his belt, er, tongue. Read a recent interview with him here.
Finally, leave it to the intrepid researchers in England to figure out how a medieval salve containing wine, garlic, and cow bile (ewww), may be one of the best antibacterial treatments out there. Read all about it here.
Have fun reading, and I hope you have a great Monday. Cheers!
So March came in like a lion….and apparently wants to leave like one too. This morning we woke up to big, fat, flurries that quickly escalated to a full-on snow squall. Which politely ended one hour later, leaving us with very little accumulation, and lots of pretty photo opportunities.
Of course, I had to check the daffodils immediately to make sure they were o.k.
Maggie and Pepe joined in on the photo journey. They don’t seem too bothered by the snow.
Here is Maggie asking why God, why, why, why do we have to suffer through one more snow? Or she’s checking out a squirrel in the tree.
Out by the road, the sun was already beginning to warm up things enough to melt snow on rooftops and green, grassy areas.
Maggie took advantage of a particularly warm spot in the sun while she waited for me to do my thing.
The shady winery is great in the heat of the summer, but it means that the snow doesn’t melt as quickly in the cooler months.
By this afternoon though, everything has melted away, and all that’s left is a cold March wind. Although this snow wasn’t particularly wanted, it did make a nice excuse to get a fire going in the wood stove this morning. I hope you are staying warm where ever you are and can get cozy with a nice glass of wine tonight. Cheers!
