promises, promises

Bad blogger. I know, I know...

Typing is still difficult and my left hand has a long way to go. I "promise" to put up some pictures, at least, very soon. I've got shots of my as yet, unfinished bathroom, the winery and LP and I making our first batch of the Sangiovese. Yes, she helped the gimp draw the wine off the lees the other day. I also have some shots of mr. bud working his "other" job while I directed traffic (one handed) around the crane he used to set some rather large beams and a foray to some of the local waterfalls with he and the boys.

Life continues much as it has this break, slow progress on the bath, and on rehabilitation of my hand. Weather has been rainy every single day of the break until today, but the day is only half over. Yesterday, we awoke to a good snow storm and snow on the ground. Neither lasted long, but winter is here in the Copper Country, like it or not.

I'm still reading you guys, just not commenting much d/t the hand. Trolling is too damn easy with Google Reader, too!

peace

ps. Blogger wants to correct Sangiovese to "angiosperm", which I believe is the scientific term for flowering plants that carry their seeds inside a structure called a carpel, or something like that-the other type being a gymnosperm, which I think are plants that have seeds on the outside of a structure called a sporophyll, like pine cones. Don't take that as gospel-i just read a lot and I think I remember it correctly, but I don't even know where I picked these tidbits up at...

Doesn't gymnosperm mean, literally, "naked seed"?

Glad to hear that you were able to continue with the sangiovese and that you're bathroom is getting done. However, I have a suspicion that you are faking the injury just for kicks. You know, because watching Mr. Bud do the bathroom is so much more gratifying.

I wish we had falling snow instead of the falling ash from all the damn fires we've got going on right now.

Hello! I hope your hand is feeling better. I just read Macoosh's story in honor of your injury. Man, I think we all might need to start wearing helmets and foam gloves...
