Bad Wine Morning


I wish I had an exciting story of a wild crazy Friday night party that left me with an awful hangover. I have the hangover signs though, but no good story. DH and I went to our little favorite wine bar and sampled a couple of the offerings from the free wine tasting they hold each Friday night-just a couple sips of two whites, and a red. I normally am a red wine lover, but this one did not do it for me, and I couldn't finish my taste. I called it quits and just ordered a shiraz, always safe, always appreciated. That was it-one glass, no more.  We nibbled on a flatbread pizza and a a cheese fondue plate, and called it  a night in the bar about 9:00. Holy Hannah did I wake up with a headache this morning. Maybe it was realizing I ordered the $9.00 glass, and it was just O.K. when I could have had their house version, which I like for only $6.00! I think I have drank enough water that I am slowly getting back to normal. 

We were early getting back into town before picking up DD and a friend from the movie theater, so popped into Target for a look. (You are so envious of my exciting Friday's by now, aren't you.) I found monogrammed towels for 50% clearance. I didn't want the bath towels, but did buy two of the hand towels, in our last name initial in a white with gray and blue trim-perfect for the bathroom when it gets redone on the cheap in two weekends. 

I'm going to my friends in St Paul for brunch later this morning. It includes a mimosa bar, but might stick to coffee and o.j.  My cousin the publicist invited me to a book talk and signing across the state border in Hudson, but the time overlaps with the brunch. I may catch the tail end, but not going to try and push things. With Father's Day tomorrow, later I am making a big batch of sloppy joe's for the lake along with some tortilla roll-up appetizers. I am going simple this time, and no salald, but bought some veggie's and already had humus. I'll bake something too, but am not sure what yet. My head is still pounding a bit  so I can't think what is in my cupboard right now. At Aldi's yesterday, I carefully counted every item, and spent $25.43, $.43 over the target for the week to stay on track with keeping to my $350 June budget.  It will be tight, but I am stubborn. What's on your agenda for Saturday?

  1. Red wine gives me an instant headache so I always stick to white. Your Friday night sure trumps mine, dinner at home (pasta), cider and 2 episodes of NCIS. I live the rockstar life :)

    1. I think I wasn't properly hydrated yesterday. I took a long detour home, plus then grocery shopping and didn't have my water bottle with-a must in our Minnesota summers. Your Friday sounds like my Saturday. We are going to lay low and get up early to be at the lake before 9:00, spend the day and get back after dark.

  3. Saturday, I had to get up at 7:45. Of course, I stayed up too late, but at 2 am on Saturday morning, I was set and ready to sleep. But, at 2 am I found a bug in my nightgown and could not get to sleep. So, I went to bed a 11:40 am, I went to bed ans awoke at 6:15 pm. The only thing I missed was going to the Farmer's market.
