3 things


  1. Watching the Super Bowl and it’s halftime.   I don’t like most halftime shows so the TV is off right now.
  2. I don’t like sediment in my wine.  Even if I like the wine: Bell 2010 Sonnette Red Wine.
  3. We had prime rib, mashed potatoes, and fresh asparagus for dinner.  Yum!  This may be a new tradition.

Edit: I do know who’s playing but I’m only watching for the commercials.  

It’s my blog…

…and I can do what I want to.  Actually I think it is supposed to be “party” instead of “blog” and “cry” but it’s my blog and I can do what I want to.

I’m taking a medication that is tearing up my stomach.  Literally.  So I missed work yesterday before I realized I should take this medication with food and not on an empty stomach like I was doing.  Issue resolved.

I had a lot to do at work today.  Like getting some forms to our clients.  IRS forms to be exact.  Forms that don’t line up with our software.  Three-part “carbonless” forms that have to be ripped apart before printing.  (Seriously, who uses impact printers any more?)  Forms on super thin paper that don’t go through any printer we have without skipping a page or ripping the form to smithereens.

Today is National Do Nothing Day and while I had plenty to do today (thanks to missing work yesterday), I am liking this day.  At least I’m liking it now.

It was also “lasagna” day.  One of my co-workers has a meeting every third Thursday each quarter.  He goes past a restaurant that has a special on Thursdays on lasagna for only $5.25.  Including fabulous, fresh, Italian bread.

Easy dinner.

Something I could relate to today: EASY.

We partook of the lasagna for dinner.

And freshly baked Italian bread.

 Along with a bottle of wine.


Menage a Trois.  Inexpensive.  But good.

Which we enjoyed.

To the very last drop.


B is for bottle

A wine bottle to be more specific.

Mr. Aitch and I drik wine…occasionally.  Most of our wine bottles are the typical green, brownish green, dark green, or very dark green.


The little bottle on the far right contains a special olive oil now.


We emptied these this morning. 

Just kidding.

A few years ago I saw a large wreath in one of our local restaurants with 2-3 beautiful red wine bottle, grape leaves and various hanging grapes on it.  I decided to make my own.

We bought the same wine and saved the empty bottle for my project.  I suppose I could have asked the restaurant to save some empties for me but what fun is that?


My wreath isn’t nearly as large as the one in the restaurant and only one wine bottle fit on it.

But I like it. 

And so did one of the teenage trick-or-treaters we had the other night.  (I whispered to her that the bottle was empty.)

Any suggestions on what to do with all our empty wine bottles?  Please leave suggestions in the comments!

My Friday

Some bloggers have a theme for each day of the week.  Not me.  I blog/post whenever I can or feel like it.  Right now, I’ve had two glasses of wine and the foresight to photograph two things that have significance to my life/day.

This is what I encountered this morning.  This photo was snapped with my phone about 100 feet from my house.  I think they were nibbling on the corn stalks wrapped around the street sign.


You can only see three deer but there were more.  By the time I stopped the car and got my phone out, the deer got spooked and started to move away from my car.

If you want to know what those lighted numbers mean on my dashboard: It’s 62 degrees Fahrenheit. I have 400 miles-till-empty in my gas tank.  (Just got it filled up yesterday.)  It’s 7:37 am.  The airbag is disengaged in the passenger seat as no one is sitting there.

This second photo is taken at the dinner table after my second glass of wine.


Don’t judge.

Yes, that’s my empty wine glass and twelve, count ’em, TWELVE wrappers from Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Almonds and Toffee Nuggets.  In the background is the Mark Levin book, The Liberty Amendments.

I ate them all.

Mr. Aitch had none.

I just hope they don’t rebel.
