Aren’t they cute? Yes, some people get puppies, some adopt kittens, but I’m beaming over my two leafy babies here, a gift from my aunt and uncle. They’re clippings from the world-class Tablas Creek Vineyard, and they shall henceforth mark the beginning of the Je Suis Vineyard. Or maybe SIP Vineyard. (Those are my new initials. Perfect, no?) My project for the next few days is to figure out how to care for these little guys and keep them alive in Oakland. Voila–I own a vineyard.
