Wine & Cheese ~ 42nd 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 42nd serving of some wine and cheese!

😦  It is absolutely dreary outside today!  Rainy, overcast, gray, trees are bare, it just isn’t much to look at!  I don’t mind rain, I get that we need it, but this is the 3rd day of this yucky-ness, I’m over it, where is the sunshine?

😦  I’m really disappointed in the stores that are opting to open on Thanksgiving.  I remember growing up that nothing was open on Sunday or holidays.  You had to plan  ahead.  In the name of profits more and more places are remaining open on Sundays and now holidays.  Shame on those stores that are making employees come to work to open a store at 9pm or 11pm or even midnight!  Open Black Friday at a DECENT hour, people  will still come and shop.  Let the employees enjoy their day with their families.

😦  The  baby I watch has the sniffles bad today.  Poor thing, I have to keep wiping her nose which is less than thrilling to her.  Makes drinking her bottle a real chore for her too.  I feel so bad for her.


The little butterball I babysit

🙂  Despite her little  cold/sniffles issue, she is a happy baby!  She is just adorable and makes me smile.  I love watching her, she gets that ‘baby fix’ filled for me until my kids start having children of their own.

🙂  I had a wonderful day Sunday with my honey, Steve.  I usually hate shopping, but with him it is fun.  Throughout the day  little touches, kisses, and him holding my hand let me know that I am special to him. I never need to seek reassurance of his feelings, I am told, every day multiple times a day.  One of my favorite quotes from The Single Woman: “Sometimes life sends us people  who don’t love us enough, to remind us of what we are worthy of”.  I’ve been loved in the past, but not nearly enough, and not nearly as much as I loved in return.  To finally be loved as I am worthy, well that is reason to smile!

🙂  Pancakes on a chilly, rainy day!  Nothing says cheer up and smile like a hot breakfast!

  1. This is so great. I could definitely use a little more wine & cheese (& chocolate!) time in my life. Such a clever name/way to talk about this 🙂
