There is something so amazing about picking grapes. If you haven't tried it, call me. I'm going again later this week. I don't know. I guess it brings back memories of that movie "A Walk in the Clouds". I think it is so fun... but then again I only do it for like an hour.
After the fun part of picking grapes came the less interesting part of juicing them. Although juicing grapes is by far the easiest canning, hands down.
Since I was detained in the juice factory Saturday I sent Jeremy to Costco for some clams and 1/2 & 1/2. Guess what our plans for Sunday dinner were (clam chowder). They had their Adidas running pants for a cheap- $19.99. Jeremy surprised me by bringing home a pair for me... Love it. He was probably sick of me borrowing his running pants the last few mornings.
It was a long day. Picking grapes and hanging around the kitchen the rest of Saturday AFTER those darn early morning piano lessons and getting a mere 3 hours of sleep the night before, Jeremy thoughtfully sent me to Kohl's Saturday night. All. By. Myself. It was so nice, and weird. But I got a super adorable sweater, and I'm glad that I have great friends that complimented me on it, because I did have someone ask me on Sunday when I was due. I hate when that happens!
About that 3 hours of sleep. The rouge Relief Society party was so fun! Despite all the crazy karaoke in the background I still managed to have some great conversations and catch up with people I never see, even though we are in the same ward and live 3 minutes away. I guess that's how it goes when your ward is permantly stuck with 600 (+or-) members.
As I meandered out of Nichol's house shortly before 2 am the other Nicole and I had real intentions of going home. BUT you know how it goes when you get into a really great, deep conversation. Needless to say I arrived home about 3:30, and didn't get to bed till almost 4.
But the lack of sleep was totally worth the great conversation! That was my weekend in a nutshell. Like you care, but hey I may publish this as my family history and I wouldn't want to spare my posterity the amazing details of my life!!
