Another Day in Culpeper

I told myself I was going to write a blog today, even though my head is pounding from wine tasting yesterday.  Wine is not my friend and never has been and I should have stuck with the green St. Patty’s day beer instead.  Now I have wasted half of my writing time sleeping it off.

Yesterday started off great, up by 6am, kitchen cleaned, blogs read and commented on and about 400 words written in my book before lunch.  My daughter, who is visiting this week from WVU, wanted to eat lunch out with me and her grandma so, I got dressed and we went a mile down the road to Davis Street.  We decided to eat at a little place called It’s About Thyme It is just one of the many 5 star restaurants in Culpeper.  For a while I had stopped going there because the Clintons would go and shut down the restaurant from other patrons.  Apparently they did not like to eat in front of other people and that kind of pissed me off.

After lunch, my daughter who just turned 21 this month, wanted to go wine tasting…I just wanted to get home and write, but it was her day and I would give in to her spontaneous whims.  So we headed to Prince Michel’s Vineyard  which is only 8 miles away and tasted 15 different wines.  I am more of a rum kind of girl so wine tasting is not high on my list of things to do, especially since it gives me a headache.

The moral of this story is.  If you stay home and write, you can avoid the follies of good food, good company and wine…and of course the headache that will follow.


  1. Well the good food, good company and good wine gives you something to write about! So it is a win, even if there is the headache to contend with. I am jealous I would have rather done that yesterday.

  2. *Hands you the aspirin and a Gatorade* I SO feel your pain. Quite literally. But you had a good time, which is always a plus!

  3. LOL Christine. But you wouldn't have had this to write about today, so wine tasting is an inspirational thing! Sounds like you had a great day, and a not so great morning :)

  4. I love the name Culpeper. It is kind of fun to say. And I am glad that no one famous lives around here because I would be ticked if I wanted a sandwich and the place was closed. I'm not going to jump anyone, I just want my food. LOL. I hope your head starts to feel better soon, but it sounds like it was worth the headache :)
