A Bottle Of Wine

**Permission to forward**

This is something to smile about the next time you see a bottle of wine:

Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.

With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally. 'What in bag?' asked the old woman.

Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, 'It's a bottle of wine I got for my husband. The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two.

Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said: 'Good trade...'

Out of Service

In an unfortunate kitchen accident this past Friday, I fractured my right wrist in two places. My writing has slowed considerably. I'm pretty much out of service for now. My goal page count for this! Happy writing!

Hump Day Write

I'm behind on my WIP, I'm behind on time, I'm loosing my mind in the process. This week has been hectic with first day at daycare for Bam, FCAT writes for Ant, day job chaos, baby shots this morning, my job possibly shutting down, and now my deadline quickly approaching! That's just wrong.

So to right this wrong I am going to write. Today, I leave work early, I sit with my boys for a bit, then once the hubster steps foot through that door I'm going on strike! Nothing is allowed to interrupt me this evening while I write, short of death, blood leading to death, or 20 minutes to sit and eat a meal with the family--that better include chocolate.

How's your hump day going?

Super Bowl Sunday!

In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, I'm going to recline in my hubster's chair, wear boxers and a T-shirt, drink beer, and watch the Steelers and Cardinals go head to head.
Ha! Who am I kidding? I'm going to pour me a glass of wine, put the monsters to bed early, and write. I'll peek at the score every so often. Toasting the champions, may they be the Steelers...or Cardinals, both making it to the biggest game of the year and becoming a part of history. I know who I'm rooting for!
