A Napa Valley New Year

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

I'm excited! Also we're going to Napa for New Years weekend! I reserved a tour on New Years Eve at Castello Di Amorosa, as recommended by fellow House Blogger, Becky over at Casa Caudill. Of course, we will be spending quite a bit of time antiquing and going to the sister location, V. Sattui in St. Helena which is one of my faves and probably drive back into the city for some night-life activities. It will be a bit of relaxation prior to ripping the whole house open a week later!

This is definitely a step up from what I would be doing on New Years otherwise: Either stripping fireplace bricks or stripping trim. Oh boy, those are fun times!

Fark!

The water main burst outside of our next door neighbor's house today! I came outside to this view:



Thankfully, it was running down the street into the other drains. I just hope they can take the load. I was able to get to work, but am not sure if they've shut off the valves yet. There was a bunch of tech's standing around waiting for instructions for about 30 minutes. SHUT IT OFF ALREADY!

Our basement was dry as a bone. I just pray it stays that way! Here's hoping we have water service tonight.
