It’s been a while since I had some wine. No wine since Christmas, as I’ve been trying to cut sugars out of my diet. I didn’t do “dry January” or cut out alcohol altogether. Instead, I’ve moderated my alcohol consumption considerably since the holidays. 

Over the last four months, I've lost almost 10lbs and I sleep much better than I have in the past. Maybe I should try going sober. From everything I have read, and from the stories friends have told me, cutting alcohol consumption entirely can be life-changing. Meanwhile, I'll let that idea of participating in a long-term cleanse ferment for a while. 


A quick trip to Amador County today. Followed by a nap and some time in the backyard. The geraniums are thriving. And, I’m content.
