I guess some of you are wondering what happens in the winery during this time of the year…or maybe not. LOL
It’s kind of quiet in the winery although we are gearing up to do some bottling. I have been cleaning. Yes, cleaning. Cleaning is just something that we are constantly doing in the winery. It’s one of the most important things we do as well as one of the most things we do. We are constantly cleaning. This week I was cleaning the production area and the Passaggio SS Drums. Hard work but it sure makes you feel better when it’s all clean… 😉
These Passaggio SS Drums are ready to be rinsed!!!
Remember the days when we were in grade school exchanging our Valentine’s with each other? There was always that special Valentine that you wanted to give to that special someone…
I don’t think it changes over the years…it just gets more expensive. I don’t really think it has to be that way. When you gave that .25 cent
Valentine back then, you were giving your heart – it was all you had. You may have even had to make a Valentine out of colored construction paper. Those were even better. Those were the ones you gave your heart and soul into making.
This Valentine’s Day, give of yourself. Make it special…give of your heart…
Be My Valentine
Hum…Black Friday…not quite sure I like the verbage but it’s slowly creeping up on us. Black Friday will begin the holiday shopping spree of millions of people. Imagine that. Millions of people searching for that special gift for that special someone. Whether it be on line purchases or actaully braving the traffic and hitting the local shops, people will be buying, buying, buying…as will I. (I have quite a few special someones)
Passaggio Wines has decided to act on the “Black Friday” thing this year to bring you some very special wines. For one day only, Friday Nov 26th, when you purchase three bottles or more of Passaggio Wines you will get FREE shipping (ground only) Just type the word Friday in the coupon code section of the website.
I think I will just call it Mega Shopper Friday – just sayin…
Enjoy the slide show
I was reminded today of how many different hats I actually wear on a day to day basis. When I first get up in the morning I put on my “staff” hat since I am taking care of Mattie (my Airedale) and Mr. Whiskers (my cat) Yes it’s true…if you have animals or just one animal, then you are staff. As I am driving to work I call my mom (every morning) and I put on the “daughter” hat. Sometimes during that drive I get a call from my son and I put on the “mother” hat. As I arrive at work I put on my “employee” hat. When I walk out of the 8am meeting into the wine lab, I put on my “Lab Manager” hat and almost immediately turn and put on my “winemaker” hat. Whew…just writing it down has made me tired.
I can wear about six different hats before 8:30am – no wonder I am tired. We all wear different hats throughout the day – some more than others. But I am reminded that although I may wear different hats at different times, I am still the same person underneath them all.
Although we may change what we do during the day, we should never change who we are inside…remember what is really important…remaining true to yourself. How many hats do YOU wear during the day…count them – you might be surprised.
Right now I am about to go put on my “drinking” hat cause the day is done…
