Slow month…

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a month since my last post. It has been rather slow on the progress front. I made a couple of trips down to the Charlottesville area, but mostly to meet with contractors. After much work we were finally able to layout roof trusses for the winery building. It’s no longer a hip roof, but the pros greatly outweigh the cons in that regard. I was really hoping to have all walls being just concrete which would have been possible with a hip roof, but the layout was next to impossible because of multiple roofs and roof pitches being blended together. Going the gable route, the first nine feet of wall will be concrete, and the gable ends will be cedar shake style vinyl siding. It should actually look pretty cool. By going with this style roof, we’ll also open up the inside of the building getting us much needed storage.

Last Tuesday we went back to FOODĒ for dinner. I had the Crispy Pork Belly again, for appetizer this time because well, it is just that good, and finished up with the Anniversary Spinach Salad that is finished with spicy caramel popcorn (yes, you read that right), and it was great. Tracie had a yummy short rib Ravioli appetizer and their Chef’s salad. Beth and Joy along with their wonderful staff are doing a great job here and I wish them the utmost success. I can’t wait for our next visit, Tracie and I have decided that’s where we will go from now on when we go out to eat, which is not that often anymore.
