Ramblings...

Not sure why I am writing in my blog tonight, but I just finished catching up on everyone's April Fool Day truths and it got me thinking. I was amazed by the food that was eaten (Band Babe), the kiddies who are in sugar hazes (Camille), the tricks that were played (Joey), the pounds that were lost/gained (Band Groupie, Dinnerland) and the pregnancies that were announced. Yes, I counted a bunch of preggies amongst my blogger friends (I won't tell since you want to surprise your hubbies). Congrats to all. I am not blond, but I am a sucker and believe almost anything I am told. I also just finished off the last of a lovely bottle of Riesling which gets my brain pumping. My DH had a glass so let's calculate... Oh lets see, I've have 4 glasses and DH had 1 and the bottle is empty. DH is the accountant so can probably figure it out for me but he's doing my taxes right now and I get money back! Sorry, I'm easily distracted.

Today started out miserable when the radio station announced that the weather forecast had changed and we would be getting freezing rain tonight and 45 centimetres of blowing snow (I think that is about 18") over the next couple of days. Last night we were supposed to have temps of 25 C (Jess that's 77 F). No matter what, it was supposed to be hot! You have to remember that here in Ottawa, at this time of the year we usually still have 4 feet of snow and it is freezing. I could feel the tears forming.

So they got me. I switched stations and started to replan my weekend of pulling out the patio furniture and sipping some cool ones. It finally dawned on me that it was April 1st. It was all a lie! I told you I was gullible Which led me to finishing work early (actually giving the finger to my computer), going for my nutrition counselling appointment, booking my fill for next Wednesday and promptly finding this lovely bottle of wine in the fridge.

I hope ya'll don't think me an alcoholic. I get "southern" when I drink. A lot of my posts mention the merits of wine. My drink of choice is actually beer but I haven't attempted a cold one yet. Thus I am stuck on wine. I am now off work for four days and it is actually and truly going to be hot (yes Jess 77F is hot to me). Yeah! We have no snow and yes the patio furniture will be coming outside. I want to get a sun burn. I need the Vitamin D.

Before I go, I wanted to give another award to Gilly (since she looooves awards). It is the Fluevog award. She doesn't realize that since I saw one of her early posts about her dream shoes that I see Fluevogs everywhere. It is like they are multiplying everywhere. I check out the shoes of all the people I see looking for the Fluevog label. A magazine last weekend had a few pages of Fluevog's. I think they are so cool, but alas cannot wear heels, so I will live through all of you. My feet are a wreck and high heel pointy things seem so foreign to me. I love my Nike's. So I hope you all get your dream shoes. And let me live through your shoes.

I hope ya'll (or is it y'all) have a lovely weekend. Watch those d@mn chocolate bunnies (Drazil). And thanks to all of you for bringing some sunshine into my life today with your funny posts. I still can't believe how gullible I am at my age. You would think I'd learn. Maybe I'll tell my DH I'm preggers. Whoops, he had the Big V so maybe not!

After you take into consideration how many calories you use pouring the wine and lifting the glass up and down to your mouth, 4 glasses really isn't that bad. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Even after 10 years together my hubby still gets a good chuckle over how gullible I am, he never fails to pull me in. Just today he mentioned that a couple of cats were having "relations" in the middle of our one way street and caused a mini traffic jam ... and I believed him. Yes, sad but true.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather. I'm looking forward to enjoying some wine as well.

Hey darl,
Rambling away is a great read for us lol. I just wanted to wish you a wonderful Easter and hope you stay warm. I could make you jealous by saying its a beautiful 24 degrees here today, cloudless sky and warm, soft sun - just like a spring day (and April 1 has gone - so this is the truth lol) but ahhh I won't torture you.

Love those cute shoes!
