I got blisters…..

No, not from playing my ukulele….it’s from winemaking!

My latest batch of lilikoi wine has “ripened” and so I bottled it yesterday. In preparation, I took my super-duper-sized aluminum pot and boiled all my winebottles and caps to sterilize them.

In removing the bottles from the water bath, my mitten hotpad dipped into the boiling water.  I couldn’t get the damned thing off fast enough!

And so, in the immortal words of Ringo Starr (no, it wasn’t John Lennon…..), “I’ve got blisters on my fingers!”
