Wine & Cheese ~ 60th Serving

Wine barrel used as table for evening diningWelcome 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.

:(  It is SO dismal outside.  Today it is raining and well that just stinks.  Nothing cheery about it at all.  Snow would be better, at least it is pretty.  And yes, me the one who dislikes cold and winter in general, just said that.

😦  The Walking Dead doesn’t resume until February 10th!!! I am so needing a Daryl fix.

😦  I have laundry to do.  It isn’t that I mind so much, I just don’t FEEL like it.  I’d rather be crocheting for my Etsy shop, or studying for my state test next week, or reading for pleasure…or anything other than the laundry.


🙂  Enough whining, life is too short and amazing to have time to be negative today.

🙂  My nephew is a total hero, love this kid.  LOVE that he just acted, putting his own life in danger, to save 2 kids who fell through the ice.

🙂  I LOVE my new phone!  Thanks to Cowboy, and his generous Christmas gift to me, I was able to purchase the Galaxy SIII, and I am in love with my phone now.  I debated between it and the iPhone.  My daughter is a reformed iPhone user, she switched to the Galaxy SIII and loves it far more than she ever did her iPhone.  That was a deciding factor for me, as the woman’s phone is more like an additional appendage to her body, she is always on it texting, talking, using apps etc., so I trusted her.  So far, mama is loving it.  If for no other reason than the screen is so darn much larger!  This matters when one is playing Plague, Inc. you know.  Or using Pinterest. Or getting OLD.

🙂  It is SO liberating to just not care some days what I look like.  Today mom needed a ride to work, so after I put the 8yo on the bus (neighbor child I watch in the morning and afternoon), I drove her over to the facility.  I was sporting my best attempt at looking like a homeless bag lady, all the way down to the winter Crocs.  I don’t mean to brag, but I think I nailed it.  Over sized pajama bottoms, hat to cover the bed head, and my broken glasses.  Yep, totally the Crazy Mary attire.  This look, I’m told, is not even close to achievable without the Crocs, as no woman with an ounce of self respect would go out in them in public (don’t hate, it is what I am told).  Stacy London is probably being contacted at this moment to feature me on TLC’s What Not To Wear.   So  proud  of the achievement I’m even going to include a photo for the dessert portion of this post today, because it’s just special.  Completely sizzling sexy!  Try not to be jealous.




  1. So where do you park your shopping cart? Bwhahahaaa…That’s how I look most of the time. Sorry it took so long to reply, the day this came out wasn’t a very good day for me 😦 I miss my Casey so much.

    Just be glad the car didn’t break down anywhere ! ttfn !
