    And I'm your 1st post!
    I'm flattered .
    And impressed that you read my whole journal (over 2 years worth!)
    and glad that you enjoyed it.

    Don't worry, I will never be deprived of wine's health benefits for very long

      Never drop a bottle of red wine on a cement floor.

      • RE: "always fascinating" -- I'm just one of those weird people who loves hearing minutiae of people's days. Maybe it's from reading my grandmother's old appointment book/diary back in the day.

        Are those spiral-cutter-ized zucchini? They look so regular and thin!

          Thanks.

          Not spiral cut, but I used a 25+ year old slicer with this blade on it and cut them lengthwise.
          (It's orange 'cause my Farmer was slicing carrots when I took it away from him to get the photo)

            Wednesday

            I did a whole lotta nuthin this morning, just trying to avoid stringing the lights on the tree.
            I hate that job, but I'm ALWAYS the one stuck with it.

            I did dishes, laundry, cleaned off the buffet, unpacked all the decorations, worked on a shopping list...anything but string lights.

            To be fair, my back IS bothering me today.

            I took the Butterflies for a walk to the barns after lunch. Lunch was a frittata. Again.

            This afternoon there was the red wine incident...
            Followed by some white wine consumption.

            Around 3, when the Dragon started making noises, I "remembered" that it was my "lunch" time. So I ate 2 pepperonis and a cube of Brie. It helped me to think of it as a meal and not a snack (even though, I know it wasn't a very big meal - still, whatever mind games work)

            Daughter brought home a kick-ass poinsettia (a Europe trip fundraiser). It's HUGE!



            Here's supper:



            with:



            I just love how the whipping cream freezes around the berries, I can almost convince the Dragon that it's ice cream.

            After successfully avoiding lighting MY tree all day, guess what I did after supper??
            I went to my MIL's with my SIL and set up, lit and decorated HER tree...

            Yeah

            (I also took her a kick-ass poinsettia.)

            My Farmer is cutting up the venison from last week' hunt. They shot 7 deer. 14 guys...



            I gotta go to the chiropractor's tomorrow

            • Agreed, very bad to drop full bottles of red wine on concrete floors. Or any hard surface, for that matter.

              Agreed as well, about cream freezing around berries. Coconut milk does the same, which is awesome. A sprinkle of toasted coconut on top, and it's heavenly.

              And I have that same mandolin! Just replaced the 18 year old one 2 years ago with the same thing from a home show, as the main blade had dulled a lot.

              Nice eats, and yes, a kick ass pointsettia.

                Yes, much better. I knew there had to be Hello Kitty involved somehow.

                • I am obviously missing some cultural references. What does Bento mean? And what does it have to do with Hello Kitty?

                  Wine has health benefits, but they kind of get overwhelmed by the detriments at a certain point. You'll have to forgive me. My father was a "social alcoholic", the kind who is never drunk but always sipping. It, and the tobacco, shortened his life immensely, and made sure that his last years were unhappy, unhealthy ones. He should still be alive, so this is something of an emotional issue for me. So yes, a glass, maybe two, a day. More than that and you are poisoning yourself in slow motion.

                  • Bento is a Japanese term for a boxed lunch. It is usually several different food items, each in there own small container or area, within a large, usually rectangular box. Since it is Japanese, Hello Kitty cannot be far behind! Many of the bento boxes I have seen have Hello Kitty on them, so much so, that I am always surprised when I see one without.

                          • I'm feeling indifferent about posting.
                            Maybe I'm just exhausted from the play and all the back stage drama.
                            Or tired of documenting everything.
                            Or I'm overwhelmed by the thought of 'catching up" on my missed days

                            idk

                            There's been a few times during my 2+ years where I've felt like stopping...

                            idk

                            maybe it's time to change how/what I write

                            • No need to catch up. (Except of course, for we rabid followers, who love to hear it!)

                              I know you've taken breaks before. Luckily for me, it was before I started reading you, so when I got to those pages in the journals, your 'break' just zoomed by for me.

                              Figure out what you want to do, what makes you happy, and helps you.
