60 Days Down

Tiny wine, big glass.
Tiny wine, big glass.
  • After my haircut tonight, I went into Whole Foods to get milk, but was wishing I could buy small bottles of wine – like on an airplane, except not such awful wine. As it turns out, they have a decent selection of splits, so not single-serving, but still much more one-person friendly. I felt like I willed them into being by the sheer force of wanting them so much.
  • Related: I had a delicious glass of Cotes du Rhone with my dinner.
  • At 10:30 on Tuesday night, I used Amazon’s Kindle book-loaning service to send my cousin the first of the Hunger Games trilogy. She returned it to me less than 24 hours later and I sent the second book, which she finished today. She’s refused the third book at this point in order to catch up on her sleep, but I’m wholly impressed with her ability to power through two books while simultaneously managing three very active sons!
  • Today’s weather was the exact opposite of yesterday’s – almost 70 degrees, sunny, and all-around gorgeous. It was nice enough for lunch outside, and I have to say, this is the only time I can recall having had two lunches outside by March 1.
  • I can’t decide if I’m happy or sad that tomorrow is Friday. On one hand, I am desperate for a weekend, on the other, I could use another day or two in the office to get a little ahead of my to-do list. I’m heading to Houston at the end of next week, and have a lot to get wrapped up before my vacation.

    Just wanted to publicly thank you for thinking to lend me the books (my first use of Kindle), and for allowing me an indulgent read!!! And remember, we got our 1st snow day in 15 years, which really worked to my advantage 🙂

    You’ve been doing a PHENOM job of posting daily !!!!! We all love it and appreciate the effort. YES — I think I speak for all !! ???

    I’m going to check out the smaller bottles of wine. It is about time the industry got one-person user consumer friendly — and not airplane “ripple”. THANKS, Hun.
