What a Busy Day!
After about an hour of my morning routines on the computer, I packed up my laptop and camera and left for the Templeton house to process those orders that had to go out today. I couldn't put everything in my computer case because of the weight limitation (I can still only carry ten pounds), so I put the adapter and mouse in a different sack with some papers I needed to take and the already packaged merchandise that needed the shipping labels I couldn't print on Saturday. On the way over, I stopped to make a bank deposit.
When I got everything set up at the other house, I called Endicia tech support and he helped me get back into the program and we made sure the labels got printed. I still can't send out my delivery confirmation emails because I don't have an email program installed on that computer – I've been accessing my accounts from the server. I installed Thunderbird at the technician's suggestion, but still don't have it set up. I want all email to stay on the server, and only want to be able to send email from Thunderbird, not download it.
After paying a few bills, I packed everything up again to take home. I had a short snack (it was already 3:30) and decided to get some photos of a favorite vineyard / tasting room on the way back. There is a great view from there, I hadn't walked yet, and the sky was clear.
When I was ready to turn into the driveway to the parking lot it was blocked off. It's closed because it was sold. I parked on the street and walked around anyway. Some of the vines were being ripped out and the lovely garden looked winter brown. I hope the new owners won't let it die. The deserted tasting room with the empty parking lot just looked sad. I also walked a bit on the winery road by the vineyard to photograph where they are taking the vines out. Did I mention it had rained for two days before today? My shoes got so muddy I felt like they were platform shoes. Fortunately they still had chairs outside where I could sit and clean my shoes off with a stick to get into the car.
On the way back home to Paso Robles, I dropped the mail off at the post office and when I got home, I was ready to drop myself. I had a quick snack to get enough energy to fix something to eat. Then I made a pizza after a bit of rest. Now after eating I am energetic enough to be back at work on my computer.
Tomorrow I see the neurosurgeon again after I get another X-ray in the morning. Then I'll know if anymore restrictions will be lifted.
The photo shows the deserted Veris tasting room. I wonder how it will look when the new owners reopen it.
