Wine & Cheese ~ 55th Serving

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 55th  serving of some wine and cheese!

:(  Where are the road crews??? I am so sick of driving on rough pavement!  It isn’t pot holes, this is pavement that is all beat up and bumpy, and frankly is so annoying.  Makes the car feel like there might be a flat tire or something.

😦  The new kids on the street seem like a nice bunch, except they have no apparent boundaries.  They just ride their bikes through yards, go into front and back yards of folks they don’t even know, and don’t seem like they get it that when a car is coming down the street, THEY need to move.  My parents would have had a canary if we did stuff like that!  And even my own kids, they knew better than to ride their bikes through someone’s yard or go nosing around other’s property.

😦  Pledge drives on the radio are SO annoying.  Don’t get me wrong, I get that it is necessary to keep a good station like KLOVE on the air, but when I’m cruising along in the car I need music, songs I can sing along too.  It is the only time I get to sing loudly without scaring anyone.


🙂  I love my job.  Really love it!  Not only do I make money selling Avon, but I get to help others who need some extra income or a new career to launch themselves toward financial freedom.  I also get to meet and hang out with some of the most awesome women, and a few good men.  Never hurts that I get a sweet discount on products.  Why pay retail when you can get it wholesale?

🙂  My allergies are improving thanks to Benadryl now.  I gave up on all the other stuff and just started taking that and it has helped SO much.  I can breathe.  And my cat can hang with me again and not make me sneeze or stuff up my nose.  Which is super nice because we have a routine each night and morning where she comes for a love fest of head and chin scratches and purrs her little whiskers off over all the attention.  Then at night she goes and snuggles against my leg.

🙂  The trees are changing, and while I don’t care for the chill in the air, I love all the colors and vivid blue skies that go with this time of the year.  And the smell of fireplaces burning.

🙂  Prime time television programming is rocking my world lately.  All of my favorite shows are back on and I am SO loving that.  Especially Sons Of Anarchy.  It is a bit edgy but wow is it exceptional this season.  Kurt Sutter has out down himself this season with the writing of this story line.  Well worth staying up to watch each Tuesday even if it means I’m going to be dragging in the morning.


This is dedicated to both of my children.  My daughter who will get down on the floor at work, alone in a room with a very angry Rottweiler and have him all calmed down in a minute, and my son, the police officer who puts his life in harms way each shift…and yet they both scream like a girl over a tiny little house spider.  They are both into the whole Zombie Apocalypse and planning their teams for surviving it. Yeah, about that.


  1. I totally agree with two of your wines. First, most kids have been taught NO respect. Not for others’ property, not for people and especially not for adults. That is the most frustrating thing for me. Second, I have to agree with the wine about radio pledge drives. KLOVE and WAKW had their pledge drives the past two weeks. I had to keep flipping form one station to another…super annoying!

    • Yep! I want music in the car, and those are the best stations, even if not doctrinally sound, at least positive and encouraging as they say. But I don’t want to listen to talk talk talk!
