Wine & Cheese ~ 53rd Serving

It has been a while, time to resurrect Wine & Cheese Wednesdays!  Happy reading  🙂

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

Many weeks 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 53rd serving of some wine and cheese!

:( Barking Dogs.  As in the neighbor’s was-very-adorable-but-now-is-a-pain-in-the-ear puppy.  They put the poor little guy out there on a chain in the  middle of the back yard to do his business, and of course leave him there for a while.  He  spends the entire time, once he does  his business which takes all of 43 seconds, barking.  Barking, barking, barking, barKING, barrrrrking….you get it.  Now personally I have to be up early so this isn’t keeping me awake or anything, but it does get very annoying rather quickly.  And now that it is the season of “sleeping with open windows”, doggie is wearing out his welcome.  I’m thinking a bagpipe band practicing at about 6am one Saturday should clear that problem.  I happen to know one too.

😦  Allergy season is in high gear.  Well MY allergies are anyway.  For weeks my eyes have been watering, itching, I’m sneezing constantly.  I’m ready to scream.  Even when the A/C was on, seems that the allergies are king for now.  I cannot believe I’m saying this but I cannot wait for winter.  Time to switch allergy meds, obviously mine is no longer effective.

😦  This Autumn the  trees aren’t going to be all that impressive.  It has been SO dry this summer that we will have a less than colorful changing of the leaves.  It finally rained a decent amount, made the front lawn green and no longer crunchy, but too little, too late for the beauty of the trees.


🙂  Sons Of Anarchy season 5 premiered last night and did not disappoint.  The stage is now set for some really crazy plot twists this season.  There were some difficult moments to watch but I’m hooked in and love it!

🙂  It is FOOTBALL season!  The Bengals again did not disappoint me, getting their butts kicked by Baltimore 44-13.  Okay yes, it is the first game of the regular season, but face it, THEY SUCK!  But they are my team so I can say that.  At least the Crimson Tide of Alabama is off to a fantastic start in the college football scene.  Hopefully the Colts will bring home a win this weekend.  Bearcats and Buckeyes are off to a good start too! 🙂

🙂  As mentioned, tis the season of open windows!!! Very cool temperatures at night mean sleeping to the night sounds again of crickets and other nocturnal creatures.  I LOVE this!


It made me smile, then laugh. Hopefully it does the same for you!
