Sometimes, it’s  hard to remember how far we’ve come with the tasting room and winery, so I thought I’d pull some pictures from the archives.

Work Party Weekend

Boy, do I hurt after this weekend.  We had a work party on both Saturday and Sunday, not to mention the preparation on Friday.  I am so THANKFUL for the wonderful friends we have and we could not have done without them.  I’m not sure what motivates them to help us out so much, but we sure are glad they do.  Thanks to (at the risk of missing someone) Henry & Joyce (they live at the winery; lol), Don (sore hips and sore knees) & Laurie, Judy & Larry, Joyce and Jerry (okay he came to do the grilling), Toby and Mona (hurt back and all), Al, Loretta & Casey, Tom & Kathi, Diane, Charlene (my scrapbooker), Michael, Darolyn & Phil (he came for lunch) and Dave (stopped by to luck at the scrap logs).  We put up gates, tore down wallpaper, worked on flower beds, cleaned up stuff, burned stuff, got rid of blackberries, hung up birdhouses, tore out the bathroom, repaired the roofs, glazed windows, replaced door knobs, painted outdoor furniture, removed wallpaper, sanded and painted the baseboards, etc.  What a full weekend.  I tried to keep the troupes fed, but why do I have so many leftovers.  Anyway, here are a few pictures of us working hard and not working so hard.

Snow and It’s Almost May

April 21, 2008 Leave a comment

Can you believe it?  It snowed on both Saturday and Sunday.  Friday, we pushed two flats of annuals to plant at the winery.  Good thing we have a green house up there to store plants until the weather warms up.  RJ spent the better part of Saturday at an auction trying to buy shop equipment for the winery.  It was all either too expensive or too run-down.  I was hoping he would get a pallet jack.  On Sunday, we spent the afternoon at the winery.  RJ was supposed to mow the lawns but by the time he got the mowers working and gassed up, it started snowing.  I taped off all the trim, windows, bar, doors, and fireplace mantel so he contractor could texture the walls and ceiling.  Hopefully, by the end of the week, I will have pictures of a clean tasting room, ready to paint and ready to decorate.
