Temperature 94F - clouding up but doubtful it will rain.
We watered everything at 8:00 AM - sadly the garden is withering fast.
Sometimes, when enjoying a chilled glass . . . . . . or two, I think "let's throw
caution to the wind and kill the entire bottle."
On these hot, very humid mid-summer days with nowhere to go, one could
do just that. No need to get in the car and drive. Not wrong to be giggling or
appearing somewhat unsteady on the old legs. . . . . nobody's looking or caring.
But I can't say I've ever done that, finished an entire bottle of
wine myself. . . in one sitting!
Bob has cut back drastically on wine consumption in these past months.
He does enjoy a beer some days but drinks mostly water.
That's really good and definitely healthy, but does make me feel somewhat
guilty chilling a glass and popping a cork.
Do you enjoy wine?
I admit that I do and usually enjoy a glass with dinner, and these tropical
afternoons sometimes sip one on the porch before dinner!
We buy wines which look interesting when grocery shopping mostly.
We have our wine rack stocked with reds but now, for summer drinking,
we fill our small second fridge with rosé and
Sauvignon Blanc, with a bottle of champagne thrown in ready for
some kind of special celebration. . . . . if one shows up which is doubtful
I have to add here that this past week I enjoyed a fabulous
rosé wine from the Veneto area of ITALY!
Tesoro Della Regina - unusual in a shorter, fatter bottle ($13.99) -
more robust than many rosés, fruity and dry, delicious well chilled
(always chill your glass too!).
Recommended by the manager of our nearby Total Wine store,
it's the best rosé I've tasted this summer.
Ah Venice - to spend time admiring your beauty again would be wonderful.
