Yes, I've dipped into the Sauvignon Blanc. Already had a glass together with a bowl of cream of chicken soup into which I dumped some crumbled bacon. That got my leg (and possibly my head) floating. I'm now following it up with a second glass, a quartered pear and a small wedge of Cambozola. Even though the wedge is quite small, I know I won't finish it tonight. So I suppose I should save the rest of the wine, too.

Despite being semi-conscious around the time SuM was getting ready for work, I fell back asleep and didn't wake up until 9:30-ish. That's a very good thing, as I stayed up reading until - eeeeek - past 3:00. And it's just an ordinary murder mystery ... but I guess I was just enjoying the fact that I could stay up as late as I wished.

I finally got my act together and did a load of laundry; then I let two cats in - at which point Diva thought it would be a wonderful idea to run out onto the back deck before proceeding down the stairs to play with either bugs or grass. She's the least adventurous of the cats, but today she obviously wanted to be stubborn. And there I was, wearing my beat-up slippers, hoping I wouldn't have to venture out into the grass. Luckily, I managed to pick her up and carry her indoors, at which point she decided to run upstairs and hide. Cats. Go figure.

When SuM came home from work, she was absolutely zonked. So I asked her if she had any plans for Monday after work and invited her for dinner, saying we could have the nummy chicken wings sitting in the freezer for months. She asked if I liked raspberries, and suggested putting them on top of vanilla ice cream, along with a liqueur. Sounds good. So we're both going to pretend we celebrated the holiday. [Delusions are my friends!]

Continued reading the murder mystery during the day and think I'll return to it shortly. I dozed off (and on) during the 6:00 news, so missed the footage of the Canadian team winning the world hockey gold. Yaaaaay! Managed to stay awake for my game shows, then switched the TV to the nature + music channel. It seems to offer the appropriate ambiance for the wine. I'm also using the excuse that the wine is warming up my throat as I'm getting rid of any lingering after-effects from my stupid cold. Okay, time for more yummy goodness in my mouth. TTFN.
