I was getting up to make coffee and noticed the email from AOL telling me the wine I ordered would be delivered sometime Tuesday! That was quick as I ordered it Friday, the company didn't open until Monday and it would be delivered Tuesday. Change of plans! We'll stay home and head for Reno on Wednesday. Because it's alcohol, someone over 21 has to sign and receive the wine.
We did our morning thing...visiting with friends online, coffee, tea and then treadmill, exercises and eventually breakfast (Yes)..
Around 1000 Ken had been outside, he came in and told me the bunkhouse was out of level. WE basically sit on a sand base and with all the winds whipping around the sand had eroded in places, which makes the door hard to close. He worked at leveling it up and then said he wanted to order 2 belly dumps of rock. This is something he's been wanting to do for the last few years, so I said "Ok". He called Cinderlite and they said they'd be out sometime the same day!
Few hours later (if that) I looked out the kitchen window and there's our rock. Ken had him dump some at our new driveway he's making between the two big rocks and then move out back to near the bunkhouse. 25 tons sounds like a lot, but sure doesn't look like it. Even though Ken said after moving some yesterday afternoon, it's a lot! He's putting it under the bunkhouse all the way to the girders that are under. We're in the market for some railroad ties to put all around then. His project, so whatever he wants! LOL..

He worked for a few hours in the 100 degree heat and then said "I'm whipped" took a shower and then we were inside.
Realxed a while and then I saw a vehicle up and down the road, and eventually they found us with my wine! Put a bottle in the freezer for later.

Our middle son, Eric called and talked with Ken for awhile and then we headed outside as Ken was bar b q ing a burger for him and a turkey burger for me. Both were yummy. I made some baked fries mainly for him, I had a couple.
I have to tell you I've drank a lot of Chardonnay in my days..haha. This wine is organic, nothing added. Apparently in the US winemakers can add up to 300 different additives that are ok with the FDA. One of them of course, is sugar. The difference right away with this wine from Revel Wine is the taste. Crisp and definitely not as sweet. I love it, so I have to drink slowly as this wine is definitely more costly than my box I usually buy.

the bunkhouse and then railroad ties.

and outhouse and at the front of the bunkhouse.
Ken and I have been married almost 46 years. We have found over the years that separate checking accounts works best for us. Ken needs to balance his checkbook every few days or so, me I've never balanced my checkbook. I get online to see what my balance is or years ago just call the bank. See why this works better, avoids a lot of arguments. haha.. Anyway my point is when we were talking about the wine he offered to buy me every other box from the winery. He did buy a lot of my box wine too I have to say, usually more than me. Thanks honey. :)

ago at West Point attending our niece Chelsea's graduation
from West Point :) Notice the color of the wine is much
lighter than my other wine. I'm a happy camper.
I heard yesterday afternoon from Deb D and Patsy on FB. A nice chat, but the outcome is we'll look forward to spending time with all this winter in Quartzite once again and of course anyone else who's there!
Up at 0430 this am doing our thing and now getting ready to head to Reno for the day. 103 degrees expected there and about the same here. So done with this heat!!
Have a wonderful day!
