Wine & Cheese ~ 2nd Serving 2019

wineandcheese2I used to devote my Wednesday blog post to whining and then time and life got in the way. But for 2019 I’m back to a regular serving of Wine & Cheese!

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. If you’d like to read the past editions of Wine & Cheese just search past postings. Sit back and join me now for a serving of some whine and cheese!

😦 The past week or so we have had unseasonably warm temperatures  in the 50s. Today it was windy and through the day got colder. It is 25 degrees right now and cloudy, not to mention the burst of snow showers here and there. This does not make me happy. 

😦 I stopped at the grocery store on the way home from work and forgot to get kitty litter. *Face palm* Thankfully I’m off the next two days, though after tomorrow mid-day I won’t go near the store because all of those folks who panic over snow will be there buying up the milk, bread and eggs to make french toast if snowed in for more than a few hours. It won’t be that much snow, a few inches. But here in Cincinnati folks freak out. Now that I have a car with front wheel drive I don’t worry about getting around.

😦 I’ve kept my heat set on 63 for the past few weeks because my electric bill was higher than expected from heating my apartment. But I cannot take it today, not after being outside in the cold wind. I had to turn it up to 72 so I can get warm! Brrrr!


🙂 Yes, it IS cold! BUT it is the perfect comfort foods day. Hot veggie soup, coffee, and popcorn. My go to favorites for winter. Popcorn is snack crack for me!

🙂 I only worked one shift today, and I’m off now until Saturday morning. YES!

🙂 I have wine for later. Enough said.

🙂 Last night was a sister’s night out. Me and mine went to see Mary Poppins Returns. It did NOT disappoint! Loved the new music, even the song “Where The Lost Things Go” that had us both in tears missing our mom (I will neither confirm or deny downloading it and others from the soundtrack). Very adorable movie and well done!

🙂 I have 2 whole days to crochet! YES YES AND YES! I have so many projects to finish so this is a good thing. 


For those in areas where it snows in winter, especially Ohio friends. It more or less sums up our weather forecasts for winter in these parts:
