Guess what I was doing this morning
And now I am …
With a martini in my hand – Yay. Happy 5th to me
Ummm, yes I know it’s only 1:30 – you know that I am not normal 😉
Hi everyone, can you believe it – it’s meeeeeee.
I was made aware that a small number of you are missing my scribblings. Kathy from the Upwoods blog just sent a comment which brought me here today.
Sadly or maybe not so sad, I don’t have to be up in the mornings any longer. Which means that I don’t see what you want me to take pictures of too much anymore. After all, the boys are now 18 years old and can get up and drive themselves to school without me nagging them early in the morning about one thing or another.
Mike and I had a Christmas Cocktail party on December 10th and I managed to take a couple of pictures before the guests showed up…
To make things more interesting than just standing around eating and drinking too much, we had a White Elephant exchange which really was a whole lot of fun.
Here is a treat for you. I had posted it in another blog, but none of you could find it, when all you had to do was highlight the white space in the middle of the blog…
Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
Creme de Cacao
Splash of Peppermint Schnaps
Shake, shake, shake until frothy and cold.
Dip the rim of the glass into some vodka and then into pulverized
candy cane or peppermint candies
Stay healthy and have a wonderful and prosperous New Year
I promise to make an effort to get out of the house and shoot many pictures for you!
This is what happens when you talk about your day/season to your family. They will go and tell other people over dinner and then those people have fun with it. I wonder if this could be classified as “Schadenfreude”.
The following email made me fall off my chair laughing 😀
Remember it is mid August – this year the season has been long and the special requests plenty…“Good evening, I do trust you can meet my needs. I require a cozy cabin for one night only, Friday, Labor Day weekend. It would be well if it has a hot tub, but if not I can bring my own. Do make sure to lay in a good supply of olive oil soap, please. I insist on 800 count Egyptian cotton sheets, preferably rinsed twice in aged balsamic vinegar and dried in the sun. My two pit bulls will be with me, but worry not, they haven’t bitten anyone but the mailman in weeks. – How the heck are you, Iris? Rita and I hope to make it up there for a weekend in September. BTW, I just fed your long suffering sis-in-law. She managed, in her weakened condition, mind you, to consume several shrimp, an ear of sweet corn, a couple of tomatoes, a large NY strip steak, and a martini or two. Do you suppose I can write her off as a dependent? Warmly, Michael”
And here is my answer:
“Dear Michael and Rita,
What good is it all if you can’t have fun, right? This was fun and after the day I had yesterday – welcome nonsense!
