Wine and Love: Eighteen

It’s Wine and Love Thursday, hosted by Suki. The concept is simple – each Thursday you post about what’s making you reach for the Wine & Lovewine glass and what you’re loving.  Head over to Suki’s blog to link up…

Wine…

  • Sleep, I’m not getting any of it.
  • Sick, sick, sick.  I have so much pain in my sinuses.  And I’m not getting better, cuz I haven’t had the time to rest.
  • Work has been insane.  12 hour days insane.

Love…

  • Tripping over something by accident that has gotten me motivated and excited.  I’m probably getting ahead of myself.  But it’s nice to dream.
  • Band and getting together with people on Saturday night at my favourite pub.

Finally, it’s Thursday.  I spent all day thinking yesterday was Thursday.  Wishful thinking?  Anyway, today it actually is Thursday and that means time for Wine and Love, hosted by Suki.

Wine & Love

Wine…

  • A week’s worth of cold, rainy foggy weather makes me want to just stay in bed with a good book all day.
  • The weather equals two migraines thus far this week
  • Work has been insanely busy, I have no time to come up for air it seems
  • My coworkers are sick and seem to want to share the fun with me.  In this instance, sharing is NOT caring.

 

Love…

  • Getting back into things I used to do before the funk of all funks settled in like playing with my band and writing for More Love Letters
  • My little brother is graduating! I’m so proud of him. And it’s a nice excuse to visit Ottawa.
  • Looking forward to sleeping in on Saturday morning so hard, and then I’ve got my cousin’s bday party at night
  • BAND! (This deserves two mentions)

Wine and Love: Fifteen

I’ve been working on a post all week it seems.  The words aren’t coming to me.  I’ve got writer’s block in the worst way and I think that’sWine & Love mostly due to the fact that I’m going through a lot these days and I haven’t even begun to really work through it all.  We’ll see if I ever finish or post that other post, but in the meantime, it’s Thursday and that means time for Wine and Love.

Wine…

  • All the things going on that I alluded to already.  I’m going to leave it at that, I think…

 

Love…

  • Band practice was amazing. I’ve missed it so much.
  • Amazing and supportive friends and family.
  • The More Love Letters Project, because I’m going to try to focus some of these feelings towards writing love letters for them.

  • Lots of family and personal stuff going on right now.  It’s overwhelming.  But it is what it is, so…
  • I’ve misplaced my graduate certificate from the course I completed in June.  I need to find it because my bank needs a copy of it for my student loan stuff and work needs a copy of it because I’m up for promotion in the new year.  I think I’m going to have to call the college and order another one.  I can’t believe I’ve misplaced it…

Love

  • My cousin and very, very good friend was in town this week.  We had a wine and talk session that last until 4am on Wednesday morning.  It was so worth it.  She’s brave and strong and I’ve missed her so much.
  • My grandmother had surgery to remove a growth from her thyroid.  She came out of surgery, with no complications and everything went according to plan.  So lucky and thankful for that.
  • I’ve got a shower to go to this weekend
  • Ladies only #winetoreach this weekend!
  • I got my Moo business cards in the mail — and they were completely free thanks to a Klout perk!

It’s been so long since I’ve posted a W&L.  Seeing as it’s Thursday, let’s get back on this bandwagon.

  • It’s been a rough week, Tuesday was by far the hardest day.  I’d go into details, but I don’t really want to, nor can I, really.  So, yay, vague w(h)ine.
  • ROOFERS.  The job was supposed to take 5 days, but they ended up working on the roof for three weeks.  I had to deal with rubbish all over my drive way and in my backyard and falling through the exhaust fans in my bathrooms for three weeks.  A very unwelcome stress.  I get it needed to be done, but…. jeeeeez.

 

Love…

  • I passed my course and have already received my certificate in the post.  So… yay to another piece of paper
  • I’m really loving my uke.  Took it with me when we went to the cottage two weeks ago and it was awesome to have it around.  I’ve learned a lot of chords, but noticeably, the G, D, Em and C.  So I can now play practically any pop song ever written.
  • In order to counter the stress, I’ve added boxing back into my workouts.  It’s made a huge difference.  Really enjoying it.
  • I’m meeting with a potential client tonight.  Very excited about that.

Wine & LoveOops, I’ve kinda fallen off the BEDJ bandwagon, haven’t I?  It’s been pretty busy around here, so I haven’t gotten down to it.  Plus, I often whinge about failing at coming up with blog post topics.  Luckily, it’s Thursday, though… which means time for Wine and Love.

  • It’s the same week in and week out; work.  I sound like a broken record, I realise.  I’ve taken a close look at what I would need to do to change this and I’m realising that things will probably never change.  So I need to either suck it up and deal with it, or move on.  So I’m working on that.

Love

  • It’s officially summer!   Looking forward to less traffic on the roads, slightly quieter office and the chance to get stuff done.
  • School’s out… Still waiting for those final grades.
  • It’s my fellow Vodka Girl and good friend, Heather’s birthday this weekend!  Go wish her a happy birthday!
  • Making music.  I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from this while life has been busy and I was really starting to miss it.  I’ve start just messing around on my beloved Doherty.  She’s in need of a tuning.  I also really want to relearn the uke.  I’ve been having fun with it.  I’m not sure if I’ll go back to the band or not, but right now I’m just enjoying playing around with different arrangements and harmonies.
  • Speaking of harmonies and music:

Amazing, aren’t they?  I’m so impressed by the control they have over their voices.  There is also a video of the younger girl, Maisy, doing a cover of my favourite Aussie singer/songwriter Missy Higgins’ Secret.  Actually, here it is:

Wine and Love: Seven

I haven’t posted since last week’s Wine and Love. LAME. It’s been an insanely busy week. But it’s Thursday, so…it’s time for another instalment of Wine and Love created by Nora, and hosted by Suki. The concept is simple – each Thursday you post about what’s making you reach for the wine glass and what you’re loving.Wine & Love

  • Work: This remains a pretty steady w(h)ine.  After today, it should ease up a little bit, but I’m really starting to struggle managing my job and covering for my coworker while she’s off on medical leave.
  • Insomnia has returned.  I’ve had a really rough week with the sleeping stuff.
  • I fail at eating regularly.  This week, I’ve skipped lunch every day so far.  Most days, I’ve skipped breakfast.  I’m either too busy or not feeling well enough, but I know this will only compound my exhaustion.  Gotta sort my life out, people.  This is not good.

Love

  • I am LOVING my Kobo.  After going back and forth on whether or not I should splurge, last Friday, I was gifted with a silver kobo touch.  I’ve been reading heaps more and it’s to the point where I have to be like ‘Okay, I’m going to leave the kobo downstairs so I don’t take it to bed with me and stay up all night reading’.
  • Replaced the old, germy fridge that came with the house last weekend.  The new one is arriving this week.  I’m entirely TOO excited about this!
  • It’s a short week this week; Monday was a holiday and my weekend will start tomorrow at noon!
  • I had the chance to run a training session again this week and it just reminded me of how much I like to do that and how much I love working in my chosen field.  I don’t get to do it often enough, so it’s always a nice surprise when I do.

Wine…Wine & Love

  • Work and school.  It’s always the same.  I’m not going to go into details.
  • My grandfather’s been really unwell.  I’m sad that he’s so uncomfortable.  I’m frustrated that there isn’t anything that can be done to make him more comfortable and I’m mad the doctors are refusing to operate.

Love…

  • My grandmother turned 80 this week!  Can you imagine?  She’s in good health, she’s pretty with it (what 80 year old do you know that has an iPad, a Twitter account and an eReader?!? My Gram does), and she volunteers still as a teacher at the senior’s centre.  Amazing.
  • Summer hours start at work this week!  That means from now until Labour Day, my weekend starts at noon on Fridays.
  • This weekend marks the first long weekend of the summer! Wooooo.  I’m so looking forward to my 3.5 day-long weekend.
  • I’m thinking about buying an eReader.  Someone STOP ME.  I was given some birthday money and I’ve gone from not spending anything to spending ALL THE MONEY.  I think I need an intervention.
  • I’m reading Deadlocked. I love these books.  I don’t care what anyone says.  I can hear you judging me.  But they’re awesome.  It’s been my first guilty pleasure read in a year.
