Dolce Far Niente, Yeah Right!

Wow – my first weekend home this month. What a weekend it was. The house was a shambles after three weeks of neglect. I had 11 gallons of wine waiting to be bottled, the floors desperately needed a mopping, and the mud room was filled with plants waiting to come inside.

Amazingly, everything got done. My partner – the sweetest man in the world – let me direct him to the chores that needed to be done. He cleaned the kitchen on Saturday while I did the bathrooms and floors. And on Sunday he set up places and brought the plants inside while I started a new batch of wine and then bottled the stuff that was waiting.

So much for dolce far niente; the weekend I dreamed of having. Still, we had a wonderful time.
