Good morning ladies from a slightly cooler Minnesota this morning . It is cooler than the last few days but still higher than usual for normal temps. It reached 80f earlier this week. It will be in the 60s for the coming week which will feel more fall like. It will be good to get out to some orchards or pumpkin patches in the coming weeks.
Last week I wrote my post from the hotel . After it was finished we went for a relaxing coffee at Caribou, a popular Minnesota chain. It was nice just to relax the two of us! Then we came back and checked out of our hotel and started on the road homewards. We did not get a mile away when we stopped! We found Christmas point wild rice company It is lovely store that has a bit of everything from food as the title suggests to , frames to candles. It was nice wandering through the store.
We made our way to St. Cloud Mn and had lunch . We also looked in Joann Fabrics and Michael’s for fall craft inspiration ! Then we decided to go to a winery a few miles away . We used to do it a lot before the kids were born ! We did a wine tasting of various wines and then settled on a glass each. We purchased 2 bottles to take home. Mine was a german style wine Gemütlichkeit
Try saying that! It means Good Times in German. It is made with Prairie Star grapes, but instead of fermenting it all the way to dryness as with Freizeit, I left it semi-sweet. It is a wonderful easy drinking fruity wine, with no barrel aging. Hints of apple, mango, pineapple, and melon come through. Serve chilled !
Two hours after leaving the winery we arrived home to relieve the in-laws ! Well it was not too hard as the kids are all that bit older. Soon after arriving home I went along with one of our sons to a benefit for a little girl who needs a heart transplant. May God grant her the gift of a new heart , Amen !
Sunday was a relaxing day after our trip away, our youngest had swim lessons the highlight. We watched the football game also ! Monday to Friday was a pretty typical week of school and work. On Friday night our daughter went with her friend s to the football homecoming game at the high school and they won ! Today should be pretty relaxing also.
