Sparkle Farkle Winner & Foundation Tour

Sparkle Farkle Tournament 2017
Hi all!  Fourth of July week turned out to be a busy one around here.  I hope you all enjoyed the holiday too.  The photo above is myself with the winner of the Sparkle Farkle Tournament, Steve Leonard, along with Zimm from Red Moose Winery (who kindly opened up for us that day to host the tournament).  Steve chose a bottle of Red Moose’s semi-sweet red wine called 38th Parallel for his winnings.

Here are a couple more photos of the fun from the tournament:

I couldn’t resist giving the winner rabbit ears, meanwhile, making myself look ridiculous.

The winner of the first Sparkle Farkle tournament, Bob, shows how happy he is that he didn’t win this year. Aww…better luck next year Bob!

Speaking of Awww…after the tourny was over, I captured a quick shot of lovebirds, Judy and Gary chatting with Amanda.

While we were Farkle-ing, our construction crew was busy, busy, busy getting the foundation forms set up on the holiday so that they could pour concrete the next day. After most of the dust settled at the end of the week, I made a little video tour to show off the progress and document this stage. Give it a watch if you have a couple minutes:

This week our contractor is focussed on putting tar on the foundation walls and setting drain tile in place. It’s so hot that they start early and have to move to another cooler job by noon, but they are still making good headway.

I hope you all are enjoying the summer so far. I’ll be back again with more updates soon!

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!

Live Music Oct 8 features Elliott Ranney

ElliottRanneyWe’re looking forward to welcoming Elliott Ranney back to Peaceful Bend from 2-5pm on October 8 for a laid-back afternoon of Elliott’s blend of jazz and folk.  If you’ve never heard Elliott before, check out the video below.  The weather looks cool, so we’ll be lighting the fire pit in the wine garden – bring your marshmallows!
