Six Word Saturday

Trying to beat the heat here!

(One glass at a time)

It is suppose to be 90 here today.  That is very HOT for us Oregonians.

My dad lives in Arizona and he tells me that is a cool day for them.

I know.

I shouldn't be complaining though
because in a month or so it will start getting cold
and I will be wishing it was warm again.

To beat the heat I think we are going to
head out early to our local Farmers Market
and then head out to The Gorge
this afternoon for some sight seeing,
maybe some wine tasting? 
We haven't done that in awhile. 

Did you know that in my former life (ha!) I used to do in home wine tastings.
I had so much fun, met tons of new people and of course, drank A LOT of great wine.  Now I am not a wine snob by any means but I do know a little bit about it.

Oregon has some of the *best* wineries around and from Portland
you can go west to a mecca of them (as you head to the coast) 
or go east to the Columbia River Gorge for even more. 

Take your pick. 


What are you doing today?

I am linking this post up with Cate at
and you can to, if you want.

P.S.  Did you see that giveaway in my sidebar.  Starts tomorrow. 


  1. I didn't even know you could do in home wine tastings.... nor did I know that oregon had vineyards... shows you how little I know!

  2. Great six words and thank you for sharing. Now I like the idea of home wine tasting. Have you a great weekend! hugs shakira

  3. Oh you are so blessed to live in Oregon! From what I have seen of it, there is beauty everywhere! But yes, that is hot! And I know it gets old fast! We have been extremely hot here in Kansas too. But I know cooler weather will be here shortly and I am so looking forward to Autumn!

    Happy Saturday!
