Yoga on the Farm

20150415_115835If spreading manure, picking grapes, washing windows or walking the dogs isn’t your cup of tea, join my Sweet Baby G in some yoga on the terrace at sunset.  GORGEOUS.

P.S. The sunset’s not bad either.


Oakie Dokey?

20150330_185730When aging wine in a barrel – especially a new barrel – it’s really important to monitor how the wine is doing.  The last thing you want to do is over-oak the wine.

Thankfully, this awful job falls to Sweet Baby G.  As you can see, it’s tough work, and the view from her cubicle is pretty barren (see below).  I hope she doesn’t report me to the Italian labor authorities.

P.S. The wine’s not quite ready so this means – sadly – that she will have to repeat this painful process in about two weeks.



Pop (Up and Then) Overs


Sweet Baby G has made the most delicious popovers (which, in the oven, first pop up and then over) the last two mornings.  I am going to have to double down on my running!  AMAZINGLY GOOD STUFF!!


Happy International Day of the Woman!

20150308_091614I’m celebrating the International Day of the Woman by enjoying the tasty muffins that G made from scratch while I took the dog for a nice run around town. I told her it’s fine if she wants to use store-bought pasta for our lunch too, because International Day of the Woman, naturally.  Looking forward to my weekly foot massage and martini later this evening!
