Rob has now returned from Ohio, Emma is on antibiotics for a sinus infection and appears to be on the mend, and we're hoping life --normal life-- can return for a visit. Rob's dad's memorial service went smoothly, he and his sister didn't kill each other, and he came home with a trunk full of photos and slides. Yes, slides.
In the meantime, though, I thought I'd share a review of the wine my mom gave me as a birthday gift. A review as in a line of bottles doing the high-step :-) There are six bottles there, although one is well hidden on the left.
My parents have always enjoyed wine, but now that shopping is more difficult my mom joined the Williams-Sonoma wine club. She ordered six bottles of reds for me. I haven't tried any so far, it's just been too hectic since they arrived, but I'm looking forward to it. I love having someone who knows about wine pick out wines for me, and I've enjoyed the variety of labels, grapes, and bottle shapes.
