I spend my entire day talking to, writing to or emailing attorneys. Is it any wonder that I drink?
When I get home from the office most days, the first thing I do is open a bottle of wine, put something fun on the stereo and start chopping vegetables. On the evenings that I get home before dark, my kitchen is usually dappled with the subdued light of late afternoon. In the summer, I open the kitchen windows so the silky mountain air can fill the room. It doesn’t matter much what I’m making, what matters is the ritual: The pop of the cork as I extract it from the bottle, the satisfying sound the wine makes as I liberate it from the bottle and into the glass. The setting sun lights up the glass as I toast the end of the workday and the beginning of a well-deserved evening.
Try it sometime, you might be surprised at how creative you can get in the kitchen…
Then there are those nights when the beauty of the mountains takes my breath away. On those nights, I take my wine out on the deck with some bread and cheese and call it a day.
Do you have a nightly routine? Does it involve wine? lol…. Do you always make dinner or do you sometimes goof off on the deck with cheese? Inquiring minds want to know.
