i'm getting ready to pop a kettle of popcorn again in readiness for the Voice. besides brewing a fresh pot of coffee, i have a couple of bottles of cabernet sauvignon chilling in the fridge. yeah, right? looking for a few good cheeses to go with...
there's about 1/2 hour before V hour. who's up for watching it with me tonight? we'll drink toasts to my favorite teams, team adam and team shakira, right? i'll drink to your faves too.:) it'll be fun. so nice that monday has become a day with something special to distinguish it. used to be such a sucky day....

Latté LOVES bleu cheese...she begs for it. It was funny watching her watch my every move. She must have got about an ounce.

I am mostly happy with the picks tonight, but I would have picked Orlando Dixon. Other than that, it's gone with my picks. Waiting for the third Shakira pick.

I have a friend who used to have a cat, Badira, who liked good wines, but only good ones.

Yes, Latté will not eat American cheese, I think her criteria is anything over $5 a pound, used to be $3...but inflation you know.

The swimming pool project is stalled. We can't get a permit from the county because the plans encroach on a utility easement. There isn't enough room to put it on the property we now own. We could buy the lot next door but it is prohibitively expensive at $127000.
