Another Wine Club Update

So last night we had another wine club get together. I am glad that I am sticking with this, because if nothing else, I am enjoying it. There were 8 people that had confirmed last night, so I made reservations for 6 in anticipation of what has happened in the past and so that I didn't get stuck sitting by myself at a table for 8. I knew at least one other person would most likely come, I had run into J earlier in the day and told her about it and she said that she would like to come. She also invited a co-worker of hers who was in town from Dallas, so there was 3. Five more actually showed up, one of which had not RSVP'd which meant that only 4 that confirmed did not show. Much better than past months. It was a good lively crowd and the event that I planned was dinner at a great restaurant downtown in Minneapolis called The Palomino. It is a BYOB restaurant that does not charge corkage if the wine is not on their menu. We had and opened five bottles which was perfect and it was a really good time. Everyone is looking forward to our next event which I will plan for a couple of weeks from now. I think I am going to do an in-store tasting at one of the shops that I enjoy, but we will see.

I am going to have to travel next week, which is a bummer, but I have to do what I have to do and maybe the FL weather will get rid of some of my crud that I seem to be dragging around with me. I went back to the doctor today who is now going to treat it as viral and gave me some stuff for it. We will see how it goes, but she did say that she has seen a lot of this recently and it could take up to a month for it to go completely away.

Someone sent me this earlier today. I thought it was kind of interesting and that I would share.

Tomorrow is the nephews birthday, should be interesting, 18, 8 year old boys, and I still am not feeling 100%. The boy has drills Saturday, so I won't be spending the night there, which is okay. My move is ready for next week, too bad I won't be here. Oh well, soon enough I will be settled in I guess. I don't know where this week has gone, but it really did fly by.

It is really cold here, only in the teens today, and all of my winter coats are packed in my POD, so I have been running around in just my sweaters which I am sure has not helped with the crud at all. Maybe it will be nice to be in FL for a couple of days, I am still trying to get out of going straight from there to NY and put that off for a couple of weeks so that I can enjoy my time there and spend some extra time with the girls. We will see what happens there.
