You’re getting the Friday post a bit early… as Harold and I are about to do a little traveling. Sometimes, getting away for a day or two is good for the health… mental and physical.

I feel a bit like Robert Louis Stevenson (of whom I’ve just finished up a Sunday about)… He did a great deal of traveling in his time… and he often was sick while doing so (RLS was constantly ill, practically from toddler age). I, too, am not feeling healthy. I’ve been plagued by a troublesome bug that has forced me to consume large amounts of tea & ridiculous quantities of vitamin C… and it’s grounded me from my bicycle… which makes me most unhappy. I feel like I’m on the mend though, which is good… but I’m not entirely “better.”

But the trip has been planned for some time, and I have my teas and whatnot packed. Harold has been most excited about the trip to Paso Robles and can’t wait to start tasting wine and surveying the pretty wineries at Harvest time. It’s Harvest Weekend in Paso, and the wineries are rolling out the wine-colored carpets and hosting musical type shindigs with food offerings and such. I don’t know how much wine I’ll be tasting, but I will certainly enjoy the food, the relaxation and the sunshine… and maybe a game or two of Bocci Ball.
