Friday night it is folks! Yes, indeed, it’s wind down night, and as I mentioned in the past, it is my night to blow off steam, kick back either with my hub, and/or with friends, and bring on some delicious wine and food.
Fast forward three weeks to today. (Just as a refresher – I am on a 30-day “Alcohol-Free-Zone” to test alcohol, or the lack of, on my brain. Yes, that’s right, does it make me crazy, is the question???).
OK, so back to today. I am so happy right now, I can hardly stand it, and there are lots of reasons for this, friends. First, it’s Friday, this we know for sure. Second, last night while out to see a musical, we had some time to kill, so a friend and I dropped into a grocery store to see what they had by way of de-alcoholized wine. Sidebar: I always said, if I could find a wonderful wine, that tasted like a deep shiraz, or a fresh crisp Pinto Grigio, and it didn’t have alcohol, I would be just as happy to drink that. For me it’s the taste – I just love it.
I found PC’s De-Alcoholized Sparking Wine, and it’s amazing!!! It tastes like Champagne, which I didn’t mention above, but love it too (sigh, no, double sigh). I have it in a wine glass, with icecubes – no…. this is not something I would normally do, but feel it’s acceptable if it doesn’t have alcohol(?????). OK, whatever, it’s cold and delicious, and sparkling. I’m as pleased as a peacock right now.
Never mind, my cleaning ladies were here today, and my house is spotless, I have a fire on, my hub and pooch are coming back from the cottage hopefully with my birch logs for tomorrow’s outdoor project, and my iPod is toggling between Diana Krall, Nat King Cole, Harry Conick Jr. and Charlie Brown Christmas music.
So what do you do on Friday nights? Drop me a comment, would love to hear what other people get up to on Friday night.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
