dad is in china

dad has arrived to nanning, china at 9am california time today. he won't be back until april 19th. i wish i could telecommute from elk grove and spend every night with mom. mom, i will be home in 4 days to have dinner with you!

this past weekend thomas and i visited napa valley together for the first time. we visited these sites in chronological order: petrified forest, sterling vineyard, castello di amorosa, rutherford grill, v. sattui, downtown st. helena and back to rutherford grill. i am beginning to understand the whole buzz about wine knowledge but i still think they're all creative grape juice. one thing for sure is that i used to dislike all red wine but now i can appreciate a nice glass of cabernet sauvignon. the next time i'm in the area, i'd like to visit chateau montelena, ca'toga and robert louis stevenson state park.
