Wine & Cheese – 16th Serving

Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Every week on Wednesday I  devote a blog to whining.  Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times.  I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs.

I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well.

I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile  just a bit more than normal.

Sit back and join me now for the 16th serving of some wine and cheese!

Okay I am already sick of the cooler temperatures.  The arthritis in my neck, back and hands is holding  major protests and we’ve not hit freezing at night yet!  ARGH!  I am not a fan of drugs of any kind that are not absolutely necessary and frankly they just do not do that much for it.  The one thing that truly helped was the hot tub, but I didn’t get custody of that. 😦

I swear my life would be complete if I never had to see another orange barrel on a street or highway again.  I kid you not,  you cannot go anywhere in this town right now without them.  And really, who had the bright idea to start these projects in the late summer/early fall as we head toward WINTER???? As in SNOW, ICE, SLIPPERY as if the orange barrel dodge ’em game isn’t enough on DRY pavement??? ARGH!!!!

While we are on the topic of highway construction, what part of STAY IN LANES on those signs is so damn hard for people to understand and comply with every day?? The SOLID white line means you stay within YOUR  lane until it ends. This isn’t a race folks, and when you drive stupid and cause an accident it messes up the commute for everyone that can follow the rules and READ.


Let’s give it up for electric blankets (can a girl get an amen?), I swear they ROCK!  My bed is nice and warm (set on low) when I get in it because I have turned it on ahead of time.  It is AMAZING!  I LOVE my blanket, and so does my kitten!

For socks….because I HATE shoes.  For those white footie socks, just thick enough, that I SO love to wear and totally wear out (2 or 3 dozen pair a year) because I wear them instead of shoes even to walk out to the mailbox.  I LOVE MY SOCKS!!!

For Middle Sister Wines, the latest round of wines sampled in the Diva Den over the weekend. Their slogan is “because there’s a bit of middle sister in all of us”.  We tried a bottle of Goodie Two-Shoes, and a bottle of Forever Cool.  All of the sisters are a type of wine and those bottles have a description.  We have found one for each of the Divas, how cool is that!?  Diva Jeanne, our 16yo princess, is Goodie Two-Shoes to the letter.  The ladies determined that I am Forever Cool, as the ex-hubby was an Aquarius (go read the description).  I LOVE a fun wine, and that is how we chose the selection each week, the labels.  The more fun the label the more likely we are to try it.


As seen on Status Shuffle on Facebook:

Marti talks to herself, answers herself, and gets a little concerned when she argues with herself. It’s hard to know who’s winning, losing and in control.
