The Mices go Wine Tasting

August 2nd, 2006 at 06:26 am

Who knew we had all these great wineries right here in So. Oregon.

Today was my friends birthday and she wanted to go wine tasting. She is in town for a cousins wedding, so our mix of companions for the day included the new bride, brides mother, an aunt from England that now lives in Spain, another aunt from England, Aunt 'Rosie" (83) and a couple of others...9 of us in all. Since Linda and I have been friends since we were kids, I am sortof like family and knew most everyone already.

My first mistake...not eating breakfast.

We visited 4 wineries...let's see, thats about 24 tastes (3-4 glasses of wine in about 5-6 hours)...all on a pretty empty tummy...

Got home at 6:30, had a quick bite...and proceeded to crash....slept for 4 hours and now it is 11pm an Im wide awake.

It was a great day with my friend and her relatives. Such a festive group. (Designated driver was my friends poor DH who got to spend his day with all the tipsy female in-laws)

On the drive to the first winery, my friend was commenting how much she loved the city and how I was now such a country girl...she said she could never live somewhere like this....too boring....

all while passing mountains filled with pine trees, pear orchards, homes that were built at the end of the Oregon trail...lakes, rivers....

Well, we dont have Disneyland, competing theatres, famous dinner houses, Orange County or 90210....but we have large doses of unpopulated land between towns and no traffic jams on our one little freeway.

The country mouse is perfectly happy in her fairly routine, simple, calm, quiet little neck of the woods...Ill leave the city for the city mices...for I fear I would never be bored there...and oh, what joys I would miss in that.

    Oh, I know. I guess I have the opposite problem. I'm a city mouse. All the country mice visit us and wonder why we don't know all the hip places. Smile We took our country mices to Woodinville for the wine tastings there. They wondered why we didn't do it every weekend! Smile

    Wine tasting every weekend???? It was very fun today...but could be a pretty spendy habit to form. ...not to mention the wierd hours you would keep...(I am NEVER up this late...but here I sit, unable to sleep) course, I am sure most wine conoseur's (did I just slaughter that spelling?) pace themselves and stop after two wineries...rather than try to get the most checkmarks in an afternoon...LOL.

    I live in the boondocks. My best friend came to visit me. She lives in a big city in a rental with lots of traffic. I live in a beautiful big house on 2 acres with 450 feet on a large creek. My best friend said she would not live where I do for a million dollars. (she has no money) Isn't that strange how some people want to live??
