Ugh. Packing and getting my wine inventory in order. Fun times. At least I finally got around to creating my cellar in CT. It's still a work in progress, but at least it's something.

Hahaha. That's the right kind of thinking! Since I'm on a serious SIWBM, I figured this was a good a time as any to organize.

I have felt your pain. After packing and moving more than 40 cases.... I know how bad it can be. Maybe a break on Sunday is in order for drinks... One less bottle to pack!

Cuz, y'know, every time one of your posts loads, it's as many images as you have extra fetches that have to happen. That's what slows it down so much.



Well, I did cut it down to only 5 images, but someone adds a superfluous one every so often!

Yep. Some of us have to pack and move our wine sometimes. We don't all have it shipped to a room and never go through it .

Pretty tough on the back to pack each box and schlep them around. Especially if it's all within a day or two. Here's to you never having to move your wine! that might require surgery afterward.

Come to think of it your locker could jack the rent on you and you'd probably have to pay it...

I actually had to move both 48 case lockers and the 16 case locker across the street to the new walk-in!

Going to look at granite today at various places, though depending on timing I'll likely get it through my other work. I talked with a manager over there and we switched fabricators and in celebration(?) they're likely going to do an employee special on it. Problem is it'd be limited to in stock granite and I'm lukewarm to most of the in stock stuff. Still, it'll likely be around 30% cheaper than anywhere else. But I'm only needing right at 40sqft so not terrible regardless.

Good luck! What color are your cabinets? We chose espresso cabinets and we had a hell of a time finding the right granite.

Actually, I didn't need my PayPal password after all. I just needed to navigate the Spanish payment page to use my credit card. Fortunately, SWMBO was able to help with that, but I managed to figure out most of it on my own. Payment is in.

We are in León. We rode through the twisty turny mountain pass to get there. Beautiful views--high mountains and typical old, very old, villages. Got here to see a few things this morning & early afternoon. Then, stopped to visit with our friend's friend who owns a bar and then comped us our drinks and tapas. Went for a traditional dinner of salt cod and a fried egg. The sauce was made of paprika, olive oil, garlic and some of the fat from the cod (this was, for me, the least satisfying of all of our meals. It was preceded by lamb sweetbreads and razor clams! We had two bottles of a rosé and a bottle of water.

My body is starting to have problems with all of these acidic and fried foods that we have been eating. I know it may be a bit of an oxymoron, but I think we've been drinking too much wine and coffee and not eating enough of my favored veggies & fruits. Plus, it would be lovely not to still be eating at midnight! Also, it has been hot back at the apartment and I have not been sleeping well. We are at a hotel in León tonight. The AC is working beautifully! Ddeuddeg & I both crashed for an hour long siesta. We have another 40 minutes before we have to meet our friends. This is Pilar's home city. We'll see what tonight will bring.

May our love be like good wine, grow stronger as it grows older. ~ Old English Toast

Only about 1100 miles, even if one were driving. I don't see a problem.

EDIT: Top of page, twice in a row. Is there some sort of victory dance I should be doing? I don't want to interfere with Sparky and oto's fun.
