little BIG thing Part 2 and Bonus Recipe

So what is a little BIG thing again, you may ask? Well, it’s something so small it really should not be worth the real estate on the blog but has changed my life in a way that is huge.  These three things are such little BIG things! * The Chiller Wine Bag * This little BIG thing is so very cool. Pun intended. We first saw The Chiller Wine Bag all over France, and we were immediately taken by its practical function and simple design.  Unlike the popcorn popper above, this is a space saver.  Maybe you can put your…

Pet Peeves and other Annoyances

Sorry, I lured you in with an adorable picture of Breezy… this is not about pets.  I have nothing thoughtful to say today. I am in agony.  My hayfever/allergies have really knocked the crap out of me.   The trees and plants are happy as all get out making us mortals absolutely miserable.  When I am miserable I want to whine, and can’t really drink wine because I can’t taste it.  So here I shall whine… with some of my pet peeves.

Work Life Balance and A Glass of Wine

The Weekly Pour Work Life Balance On Sunday, I was very conflicted as Gary and I were invited to a work associate/friend’s house for the afternoon and early dinner.  Conflicted because I felt guilty for not staying home and working.  Work life balance is a big issue for me since I work from home.  I work every day usually all day.  When I am on a deadline I can work until 10:00pm or later.  I love what I do so it does not “feel” like work, but it is work all the same.  One of the things that I do to…
