Grapes and Old Stones– the Blog

Be careful what you wish for.

They say be careful what you wish for, but I guess we weren’t.  My husband’s standing prayer for years was, “Just some grapes and old stones.”  I added, “please, God” and a bit of hocus pocus.  And then one day, there we were.  Bound and shackled to the endless mending of centuries’ old stone buildings and risking our savings to revive a vineyard.  One result is this almanac of what life has become; not exactly what we wished for, and not exactly what we would have wrought if we’d had the prescience to know what was coming.
