This year I thought I’d have a few birthday celebrations. We always celebrate for at least a week and sometimes longer. This is one of those “longer” years although the birthday itself is nothing special. It doesn’t even end in a zero or a five. Maybe once you pass sixty, you celebrate a little longer as an affirmation of still being alive.
John and I went to the holiday party at Chateau St. Jean on December 4. We always enjoy this dinner. We hobnob with one of the winemakers and the chateau manager and drink some library wines. This year the dinner seemed a little smaller portionwise and the wine not quite as free flowing. It must be a sign of the times.
We had a good time and stayed over at the Gaige House in a Zen Suite. They know us there and are always really nice.
