Weekend Warrior # 32
If you are following my blog, you will know what I was up to yesterday, already. I will not go into the same story again, but it is still on my mind, of course.
Friday night had me decide to have a bottle of wine. It was a red wine, and it was truly terrible. I did not enjoy it at all, and will never buy it again. I thought about pouring it down the drain, but being half Scottish, I drank it instead of wasting it. The new wine glass (a 1 Litre Thundermug) fit the 750ml bottle nicely, and I sipped at it all evening. There were a large number of descriptive flavours on the label, but none of them shone through. It was muted abundance if that makes any sense. Hmm. If I ever make wine, that might be what I call it, but instead of being watery, and too many flavours, I will find a way to take a subtle flavour and enhance it. Muted Abundance. Well, at least I got something good out of the experience!
Roy had decided he was up for making tacos for supper. I think I should warn you that horribly bad red wine does NOT pair well with tacos. I doubt red wine ever pairs well with tacos. Had I known where the evening would have ended, I might have chosen to drink some of Susan’s tequila instead. Hindsight is 20/20. We then sat down to watch The Orville together. Roy had no idea what I was putting on the TV, but we rather enjoyed it. The obvious jokes were funny, and it was a show with a spaceship. We will see if it keeps us laughing, that was the pilot show. I had my bottle of G2 (Gatorade) chaser when I finished the wine and while I was eating my tacos. I can say that I had no hangover (yay!) but must confess to a night of uncomfortable indigestion.
Saturday was written about yesterday. However, after the event, we went out to supper with Andrew and some other friends. We had a nice meal, and the conversation did steer around Star Trek Discovery and The Orville. After that, we went to play pool at Dooly’s for an hour or two. While we were there, a Beatles song came on. I felt it was a message from Susan, as we were there with Andrew. “Paperback Writer” played, and it made me feel like we had her blessing to be spending time together as friends. It also told me that I need to get serious about writing if I am going to get my Fantasy Trilogy done. I was a little sad that Susan wasn’t able to be with us, but also felt that in a way, she was.
Here I am on Sunday, writing from The Second Cup, in Fredericton New Brunswick, Canada. I have to pass some time before going to buy fish food. We are out, and the fishies like it when we feed them. (No, they didn’t go without, we just need more.) As I am in the same part of town where the store is, it made sense to park in a cafe with my laptop, have my breakfast, and write. I am so happy with this laptop. I just had a brief discussion with the city mayor about the wi-fi signal here. I am in the front corner, far away from the counter, and I suspected that if I was closer to the back of the cafe the signal would be stronger. The Mayor confirmed this, as he is using his phone, and was moving through the cafe to find out if the signal changed. It did. For my purposes, it is a Sunday, and I decided that the location was more important than the speed of my internet connection. With a little patience, I am able to do what I need to do. It is a lesson in patience when the internet is slow, no matter where you are, or what you are working on. Today, I have decided to pace myself and make the most of my day, as tomorrow is another Monday.
Once I finish my errands, I am going to go prep cook and bounce the house. I plan to have a skype date with my cousin this evening and will be catching a live webinar this afternoon. I am hoping to meet up with a friend today, actually, there may be two friends I need to see, now that I think about it. So even though it is a day that I do not want to rush about to get things done, it will be packed full of many things that need to get done.
