Life Is Good

I just might be a wee bit hung over ........

It all started when I bought this lovely bottle of wine. I actually was buying it for the bottle. I liked the bottle, It was tall and it was a lovely shade of blue. Very tall. I had been working on emptying this bottle for quite some time. I want to give the bottle to my daughter. She needs it. I know just where to put it in her house. I can see it in my minds eye, nestled on the shelf next to her fireplace.

So, you can see that I was doing this for her. I suppose I could have given her the bottle with the contents intact, but being the good mom that I am, I was willing to sacrifice my sobriety and empty this lovely bottle and prepare it for display.

The bottle had several glasses left in it at the beginning of the evening. I am not sure how many, because I did not use a wine glass. I did not drink from the bottle! I have more class than that! I drank from my insulated cup that goes into the freezer and keeps your beverage cold. This comes fully equipped with a straw to sip from. After the first cup and sharing with others, there wasn't much left. Didn't look like much to me ....... so I polished it off.

Not so perky this morning, even after the half a pot of coffee. But, things are looking up, here at the kampground. My old pink phone adorned with the bejeweled frog is holding a charge and working. Good thing, too, since I never got the other one to turn on. It is a beautiful fall day, warm and breezy.

Oh, and my first book is being published!!

Is that tall lovely blue bottle of wine called Sonneband Riesling? Because I have the very same bottle! I bought it because I, too, like the bottle, and, well, let's face it, I love Reisling, too! I've been carrying around this bottle for over a year now, just wondering what to do with it!

And you put as an aside that your book is being published? Congratulations! Yahoo!

We need more details on your book. Please! Who is publishing it? When will it be out? Where can we purchase it? What's it about?

See? Somehow I am out of the loop, although I read you everyday you post.

The bottles are the only reason I buy wine or to make steamed mussels for the family. Otherwise I let everyone else drink it.

Congrats on the book! Is it the one for your daughter? You might need to refresh my memory.

As far as cooling the wine...on Big Brother, I saw them dropping frozen grapes in the wine glasses to cool it. Then they have some tasty alcoholic grapes when they polish off their beverage. You could try that, if you don't mind patterning your drinking habits after some sketchy VIP cocktail waitresses. Funny how the CBS show doesn't let us see this, but Big Brother After Dark on Showtime does.

I commend you for cleaning out that wine bottle for your daughter! One less thing for her to deal with in this hustle-and-bustle world. :)

Did I read that right and you drank wine with a straw? You go girl, you classy rebel you!

Jo said...

Your book is being published? Hooray for you and congratulations...! Tell us more.

And yes, I can definitely see how you would be doing your daughter a favor, emptying that bottle for her. :-)

Just throw it in at the end that you have had your book published so the other details please as Skippy has said we need these details....

Hubby went through a stage when he would drink his wine from a straw also not sure why he did this.....
