Karamoor Estate

Another busy week here!

I did something crazy last weekend.  I cleaned!  The weather was so nice on Saturday, I opened the windows and I washed all the floors downstairs.  If you knew me, you would know that this is a huge deal.  I dislike cleaning (which is why we have a cleaning lady come).  I think my problem with cleaning really comes post cleaning because I want everything that I clean to stay perfect, and, as I am sure you know, it stays perfect for precisely 1 minute.  Several hours of work for exactly 1 minute of satisfaction.  It's so frustrating.  On top of washing the floors and vacuuming, I also UNPACKED everything from my trip the weekend prior.  Little known fact:  I hate unpacking...or putting clothes away in general.  I think this stems from my childhood.  My mom was a stickler for putting clean clothes away as soon as they came out of the dryer.  To this day, it is my least favorite chore....well maybe it is tied with unloading the dishwasher.  After all these self imposed chores, I actually studied Greek!  My grandparents are 100% Greek, and my grandmother has perfected the 100% Greek guilt trip.  2 Christmases ago, she got me the Rosetta Stone for the Greek language.  Every so often she would ask me, "Have you finally used that Greek stoftware I got you", to which I would reply, "No, but I promise I'm going to!", to which she would reply, "Mhmm, sure.".  That reply is not a good reply.  So, I finally dusted off the software on Saturday and have been practicing every day.  I surprised her with a few phrases this week, and her reaction made me wish that I had never let that dust accumulate!  Hopefully I have a good base by the end of May because Matt and I are going to Santorini...and one of us have to be able to order drinks!

Moving on....we have also been super busy here at Karamoor this week!  We bottled our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc yesterday, we are bottling our 2015 Rosé today, and last night we had that Bucks County Locavore event that I posted about last week.  First things first:  I am pumped to release the SB and Rosé.  You guys are going to love them.  I'm probably going to drink a bottle of the Rosé tonight!  Both the Sauvignon Blanc and the Rosé will be going out to our wine club members in the month of March (though I will be recommending that you let them settle until the middle of April)!  If you haven't joined the wine club...what are you waiting for?  The Bucks County Locavore event was one of the best events that I have been to since my start here at Karamoor.  All of the vendors were AWESOME!  I love artisinal foods, they just always seem to taste better.  There were local honey producers, chocolatiers, coffee bean roasters, jam makers, etc.  It was great!  We had a a huge amount of activity at our table and lots of people signed up for our newsletter.  It was a great night of chatting with people who had not heard of Karamoor, but were eager to learn more!  I hope Locavore invites us back to take part in it again next year.

It has been a tiring week, and I'm ready for the weekend.  Maybe I will attempt to get my car washed again.  I made Matt take it to the place in Doylestown where he goes for his car because I was not ready to face that beast just yet.  After he got it washed on rained on Sunday, then it rained on Tuesday, Wednesday, and also Thursday.  Maybe I am just not meant to have a clean car.  I know one thing I will absolutely be doing; tonight I am going to be hanging out at my Crossfit gym because the 2016 Open started today!!!  I did the WOD this morning, but on Friday nights during the Open we go to the gym and root on the evening class and then have some drinks to celebrate how hard it was.  I hope that you have a great weekend!  Until next time...
