I had to explain to Mr. Knight the reason I didn’t pick up any lunch foods at my local grocer today.  My basket was already full of my wet rainbrella, coffee creamer, and two bottles of wine.  My life in a nutshell.

I had the most delicious Sauvignon Blanc today by a New Zealand winery: Starborough.  As described on their website :

The Starborough 2007 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a plush, approachable style, highlighted by the refreshing fruit accents and acidity that characterize wines from this region. The wine shows flavors of honeydew melon, passion fruit, and peach over a citrus background.

The residual sugar is only 4.0 grams per liter.  Do I sound like I know what I’m talking about?  Thank you, Wikipedia.  Now the appropriately-named wine bar in Walnut Creek, Residual Sugar, finally makes sense….

Enjoying a glass of Seven Daughters before heading out to see a band.  No, I have no idea who is playing.  I Google imaged it and saw a dive bar with a huge “KARAOKE” banner out front.  It’s gonna be a good night.

I’m telling you, my housemate is at least twice my age and I have the best time going out with her.  Her boyfriend usually carts us winos around.  Tonight is no exception. Cheers!

Moving to northern California was quite an adjustment and took some getting used to.  I completely picked up my life and moved it 3000 miles away.  It was scary and liberating all at once.  I was ready for a change.

One thing I was introduced to out here is red wine- go figure.  Let me just say, to all the wine snobs out there- I love you and would love to pretend that I am one of you..but I know absolutely nothing about wine.   I have always been a beer girl, and my mouth will still salivate at the mention of Blue Moon (or Pyramid’s Audacious Apricot, which has since bumped my beloved 1st choice to a close 2nd), but there is really nothing like a glass of red at the end of a long week.  Hell, I just had the most pleasantly productive work week and I still came home Friday night craving a glass of red; okay, two glasses…

BV- Im a fan, can you blame me?
