I'm A Winner!

Of a bit of a dubious award. See previous post. My hubby says that all I need is a horizontal surface and five minutes and I can fill it up. I guess he's right.

We just got back from a couple of nights at the Roman Spa in Calistoga where we celebrated our anniversary. Winter in Wine Country is usually pretty rainy and cool, and always beautiful. We love the grapevines at rest with the mustard blooming between the rows. This picture has just a bit of it, but many rows were just full of the yellow blossoms. Later in the season, the plants will be plowed under to add nutrients to the soil.

It was particularly rainy and chilly this week, with snow falling on peaks of 1000-1200 feet. We had a great time in the geothermally heated pool and spa every night, just hanging out with a glass of Napa's finest vino rosso. Good times with my adorable hubby.

We have been married 12 years and look forward to many, many more. It took us a while to find each other, and we couldn't be a better match.

Thanks to my sweetie for a great couple of days and a dozen fabulous years!

Mrs. Goodneedle
is right--Life is Good!

Happy Anniversary!! What a wonderful place and time to spend it - I have to agree with Luther Burbank - it really is the Chosen Spot.
