Five More Simple Things That Make Me Happy

1. Rediscovering my i-Tunes library, which I thought was lost in the cloud forever. Hello Barenaked Ladies, Goldfrapp, Shiny Toy Guns, and Big Audio Dynamite. It’s great to hear from you again.itunes_giftcard

2. Laughing a genuine belly laugh, like I did today with good friends.

3. Excellent service at a restaurant, any restaurant.

4. Accepting genuine compliments about my son from his supervisors at his summer job.

5. Being able to stay up as late as I want without having to worry about an early alarm. I am SO not a morning person!


Please Pass the Wine

I’ve heard several times today from a few different sources that today is officially Drink Wine Day. I didn’t know that there was an official day for that. I was under the impression that one could enjoy a glass of wine on any particular day. Still, I think I would be remiss if I didn’t mark the occasion with a glass.

It’s time to take a break from all the rushing around cleaning and puttering and straightening and fixing. It’s time to take a deep breath, put aside the work for the evening, and relax with my sweetheart and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. I’m completely uneducated about wine. I know I’m supposed to enjoy red with meat and white with seafood. I know that I’m supposed to chill my Pinot Grigio but leave my reds at room temperature. Maybe I even have that wrong. The fact is, I don’t know much about wine, aside from the fact that I enjoy drinking it from time to time. Tonight is one of those times.

In the spirit of Drink Wine Day, salut.
