Sipping wine in Sonoma

I can’t believe it’s been a few months since I wrote a post here!  Especially after promising to try and keep the blog up to date.

The only excuse I can come up with is that in the past 6 months my wife and I have gone from renting childless couple to home-owning family of three.  Needless to say it’s been a lot of work.

We’ve moved up to Sonoma County, just north of San Francisco.  If you’ve never been here (or only been to its more popular neighbor Nappa) I highly recommend it.  I’d love to say I am sitting on a deck sipping Sonoma wine, but alas, the deck needs a lot of work, the grounds need re-landscaping and the house is in dire need of a make-over.  Yes, we bought a project.

Which is fine.  It’s a long-term project.  And it feels really good to finally have a house where I can drill holes in the walls without needing permission from the landowner!

Here’s a view from our front window.  You can just make out a vineyard across the road.  Pretty cool!

I’ve got a ton of posts in my head right now so I will try and get some of those down on ‘paper’.  I might mix up the length a bit as well.  Part of the problem in keeping a blog going is the mental work in writing long posts.  I like it, but it’s taxing.  Some shorter ones might help remove the mental roadblock.

Hope everyone reading this is doing well!
