Thankful Thursday - He is so easy going

He is not only nice and easy going, he is so unselfish.  Why do I say that about my hubby? Because this past weekend was his birthday and instead of doing something he truly loves to do, he books a stay and play weekend in the Napa area.  The word play means golf and the word stay means a hotel and casino.  Golf and casino are not his favorite but he knows that I love them. It was a very nice quiet get away.  Just Jeff and I enjoying every minutes of our time away from work, volunteer, house chores and the city.  We were away for three days two nights and it was just the right amount of R&R.  The hotel had a very nice restaurant, nothing very fancy but the meals were great.  The golf course was called Hidden Valley Lake and it had a great deal that is why he chose it.  There was another agenda that Jeff wanted to check out the area to see if it was a place I would consider residing. Although it was a nice community, the drive to get in and out of that area is not one I would particularly choose. Why? because the road goes up the very windy road with at least 30 or so turns that were hugging the hills and over looking a very steep drop.  No thank you, I told him.  We did not win any big amount but we did not lose our shirt either.  On our way home, I could not believe that he would stop and do a 9 hole golf so we can let the traffic eases a bit.  This type of short get away is a nice break and inexpensive.  I look forward to our next one sometime in September.

Most of the grapes on the different wineries are like these.

Very interesting shiny bunny.
