Wine & Cheese ~ 8th Serving 2019

wineandcheese2I used to devote my Wednesday blog post to whining and then time and life got in the way. But for 2019 I’m back to a regular serving of Wine & Cheese!

Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times. I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs. I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well. I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal. If you’d like to read the past editions of Wine & Cheese just search past postings. Sit back and join me now for a serving of some whine and cheese!

😦 Laundry. I could leave it like that and y’all would understand. I just do not like doing laundry at all. I even try to wear things twice before washing them, other than my work uniforms that need washing each time they are worn, and it still feels like I have a lot. Of course this household of 5 adults and 2 small humans produces multiple loads a day so I guess I shouldn’t complain about my small portion of it all.

😦 Millipedes. I HATE these darn bugs! They stink like rotting mint when you squash them, but you have too because they will nest and produce hundreds more. Country living is great but the bug side is…well buggy. There have been days prior to the current heat wave on which I killed 50+ in my room in a day. The heat has gone a long way toward helping eliminate them, thankfully. We used Ortho Home Defense around the outside and inside of the house, but the rains we had on going for days washed the outside treatment away. I get that they are harmless, but they are so creepy!!!!! We have some sealing and weather striping to replace in the coming weeks that will also help.

😦 It is hot out, which I happen to like. But the periodic rain showers are making it disgusting. As I’m aging I am more prone to allergies and difficulty breathing when the humidity gets insanely high. And it is! UGH.


🙂 Giggles. I LOVE the giggles and full on belly laughs of little kids. I get almost daily doses around here. I say “almost” because when I do work it is usually a double shift so they are sleeping when I leave and return. Squeals, laughing, the pitter-patter of toddler’s feet racing through the house, it is all very awesome.

🙂 I found some very cool new items to make for my shop and now I’m all excited about it again. Thanks to Pinterest I found patterns to make some things that will hopefully sell very well this coming fall and winter.

🙂 Can I just give a shout out to coffee? I mean seriously, it is the single best drink on the planet. Any time of day this girl loves her cup all full of that dark, hot liquid!

🙂 This one is a bit silly to some, but I leveled up twice today in Harry Potter Wizard’s Unite. Level 23 and loving this game! Found a few spots loaded with inns to get spell energy and the spawns there were fantastic. I could easily spend an entire day playing but had to reign it in just a bit. I now take my lunch breaks at work (something I rarely ever did) so I can run down the street to one of those great spots and fill up on energy and do some fortress battling. Yes, I am a geek I suppose.


Teacher: “If I gave you 2 cats and another 2 cats and another 2, how many would you have?”
Johnny: “Seven.”
Teacher: “No, listen carefully… If I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”
Johnny: “Seven.”
Teacher: “Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you two apples, and another two apples and another two, how many would you have?”
Johnny: “Six.”
Teacher: “Good. Now if I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”
Johnny: “Seven!”
Teacher: “Johnny, where in the heck do you get seven from?!”
Johnny: “Because I’ve already got a freaking cat!”

  1. Hi Marti. I was so happy to see your review of my soap. That means a lot. I wanted to comment on your millipede situation by saying a spray from a can of Aquanet will stop them dead in their tracks.
