Lazy Sunday afternoon …

Yawn … what a lazy day.  It’s Sunday and it’s overcast and rainy in Manoa with little or no wind .. a perfect day for napping!  I really needed this kind of day after a hectic couple of weeks at ‘IOLANI and a rough night of wine “tasting” with friends Kenzo and Natsuko Tsujimoto, owners of Kenzo Estates in Napa Valley.  If you love great wines, their sauvignon blanc called Asatsuyu (Morning Dew) and their flagship red, Rindo (Purple) are outstanding.  But the best part of the tasting was when Kenzo had us compare his Murasaki and Ai reds with bottles of Harlan and Screaming Eagle.  For those of you not familiar with these outstanding Napa wines, a bottle of Screaming Eagle goes for around $1,100 to $1,500 a bottle … pretty pricey stuff.  Gotta tell you, though … Kenzo’s wines were better in my opinion, and they are “cheap” by comparison – $250 per bottle (which for us commoners, is still frickin’ expensive!)

Went and picked up Nick from the airport this morning after he flew in from Japan.  He and his friends had a great time eating and sightseeing their way through Fukuoka, Kyoto, Kobe, and Hiroshima.  Now it’s back to work …

We had some big clients in this past week which is why it was a pretty stressful one for all of us … and it looks like we’ll have more of the same this week.  I’ve also been trying to spend more time with my mom … she’s been having some health issues recently and now requires more assistance.  Never a dull moment …

Aloha, “D”
