Perfect Moment Monday: I Love Lucy Tessa

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

We gather once a week to engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.
Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.

====================================
I got to live vicariously through my children this week when Balistreri Vineyards hosted their annual children’s grape stomping.

Complicit in this use of child-labor, we pre-purchased 2 bottles of Little Feet Merlot, which will be available next year. (I am counting on the fact that the 16% alcohol content takes away 100% of the feetiness of this wine. Otherwise? Ewwwwww.)

It was great fun to watch the children stomp and get all gooey. I classify this — and sipping the forthcoming wine — as a perfect moment.

I can hardly wait for the chocolate factory episode (for which I will *not* live vicariously).
====================================

Love that name. Little feet. I want a picture of the feet after the stomping. Looks like lots of fun.. and lots of stain.
And it is always wonderful to pass along your love of Lucy.

It is clear how much you love your children to even think of consuming something that has made extended contact with children’s feet.

Though I’ve got to say, it’s a little weird to have kids make something that they can’t consume for a decade or so.

I never would have guessed that they would actually use the foot grapes to make wine. But 16% alcohol should kill everything. A few brain cells, included. :) It looks like a blast.

Smashing grapes with my feet sounds like so much fun.

Grapes and juice would be squishing between my toes…and the wine is also a great incentive.

Can I join you in the taste-testing next year?

How fun!

I keep mentally composing my perfect moment posts and then not getting them done.

I will share the one I almost got written yesterday – a perfect hug from my DH – like the old days, before LB. Long and just the two of us.

I always wanted to stomp grapes. But yeah… not sure I could get over the footiness of the wine in order to drink it. Let us know how it tastes. :)

Er…the 100% feetiness of the wine was all I could think of as I looked at the picture.
