|Joyful World SAL - September|
While waiting for October release, I've been working on A Moment in Chalk and Red Velvet Inscription of which I'll post update pics later this week.
On Sunday afternoon, Gary and I went out to Frichette Winery to pick up our wine club release. We took along a little cheese and salami snack and we're so glad we did because Greg and Shae have a new wine club lounge! They built it on a new upper level to take advantage of the views.

After our tasting we bought a bottle of their rose, which is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which I haven't seen before.

Frichette is hosting a wine dinner and jazz on Saturday evening to celebrate their 3rd anniversary, and we love jazz and wine so - it's perfect, and we're going! It's been so fun to visit the winery and watch the growth from empty pole building, to getting up some walls and paint, furniture, and now their lounge, plus they've just built a production building this summer. There will be more changes in the future as they plant a small vineyard on their own property and in a few years will have some estate-grown wines.
Gary thinks we should be able to cut cable and watch football out at Frichette, but I can assure you that's not happening, lol! Wine and stitching do not go together (for me) and I like to stitch while watching the games. :)
Well, today was my first day of teaching ESL. About half were new students to level 3 and half were returnees. It seems that most of the students are on a lower level than some of the students I had last year, so I will be adjusting the curriculum. There were ten students and we really got on a roll with asking questions and talking - so much so that I went 10 minutes beyond class time! I love when that happens!
So I'm looking forward to teaching again tomorrow, and to getting in some more football watching and stitching tonight!
Have a great day!
