It's absolutely pouring down outside now and we're waking up to frost in the mornings this week. The fire is stoked up and I'm stuck waiting for my wines to clear in the barn so I can bottle and free up some carboys. I could open a bottle of wine and sit in the spa pool ( between rainshowers! ) I suppose..

What's everyone else doing?

Well right now getting prepared to head to bed. It was a beeee-you-tea-full day today. 27C. Cut the front lawn (did the back a couple of days ago).

Shoulda done some wine work, but I just couldn't be bothered. Gotta get to some soon though.

Allie, why in the world would you worry about showers in the spa?! Hot water, cold droplets falling...oh, my. The best day we had in the spa last fall was when it was snowing huge flakes and the air temperature was +18 F!

Raining here all day long. Probably good anyway as I would have done yard work but stayed inside and rested my back instead. I did manage to bottle a batch of wine though with my new auto filler hooked up to my electric pump which worked very nice.

Yeah, I saw that as I hit "enter". Have no idea how it popped up as a current thread. The question still stands, though...hehehe. I love "tubbing" in the rain. :D

I used to love chilling in the dead of winter in my hot tub which was outside on my deck under the stars. I kept it at 104* so even when it was 0* out Id get out and sit out and cool down for about 5 minutes before going back inside the house.
