It's still quiet at work, mostly. I've got a nice cup of hot tea and a granola bar. Some Sara Watkins playing. Should be a light day today, but lots of loose ends tied up.

We celebrated with C + J this weekend, they got married on Saturday. Only the 3rd or 4th wedding I've ever been in. Yuki looked radiant. LG was pretty well-behaved. It helped that there was an appetizer table in running distance. I found out that he loves harpooning cheese cubes with a toothpick. The ceremony was great, not too long, not to crowded. And the weather was cool and breezy, for a late June in Kansas.

The setting was very nice, an orchard near Edgerton. We'll have to go back when the apples and peaches are ripe! The orchard owners were amazing, very thoughtful and welcoming.

It's so humid at work. Every year this happens. Twice this year, so far. Yuck. I should bring a change of clothes.

The grapes are growing nicely. Little bulbous green berries, about the size of peas. Still way bitter. In another couple of months, hopefully they'll transmute sunshine and water into deliciousness.

Yuki brought me this book, which has me totally excited to try wine this year. The estimates I hear are about 5-10 pounds of fruit per vine, and about 5-10 gallons of juice from that much. I'm hoping for at least half a case of wine. We'll see how it goes.
