Well, we are gradually becoming accustomed to our new (temporary) home down here in Houston. The heat, although constant, is not really all that bad, but then I have not been out in it for a bike ride yet as my bike showed up missing a critical part, rendering it useless for the time being.
I have been enjoying doing a touch of wine shopping, however, at the grocery store. That might not seem like that big of a deal for most of you, but for me, having suffered through the oppressive liquor laws in Pennsylvania for the last 16 years, it is a refreshing change.
Other than that, there is not a whole lot to report. I do hit the road with the boys again this Friday, though, as we hop on a plane to Detroit where I will leave them for the week as I go off to Oregon for a press trip, culminating in the International Pinot Noir Celebration in McMinnville, Oregon.
Just one quick reminder this week:
- The deadline for submission for the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge is this Monday, July 18th, with this month’s theme being Solitude. All the details can be found HERE.
Have a great weekend everyone!
