Wine and Love #62

Wine and LoveWelcome to Wine and Love, a weekly series of the good “Love” and bad “Wine” for the week. Participating is simple. Post two lists – one with what’s making us w(h)ine and one all about the love. Add your link below!


* I’m now stuck between recovering from being sick and getting taken over by allergies. Please make the congestion go away! Ugh. I was so desperate that I busted out the Neti Pot last night for a little bit of relief.

* A sebaceous cyst that I’ve had for over ten years on my mid-section recently got infected, so I had to see a doctor about antibiotics. Hoping that the antibiotics and hot compression will help. I have the name of a dermatologist in case I want to have it dealt with further.


* What I have now dubbed “Goosegiving” because it was like a Thanksgiving lunch, except the bird of the day was goose. We only took photos of part of the amazing fall-themed meal! There was a roasted goose, candied yams, multiple salads, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, multiple gravies, butterscotch pie, mini Bundt cakes, Bloody Marys…

Our contribution (pictured lower left): pumpkin bread with homemade pumpkin butter.

We are so lucky to know people who enjoy food as much as we do because these feasts are best enjoyed among friends.

* Love the fact that our animals get along. Occasionally Sergio who usually just does whatever he wants around the house will show more affection towards Sasha, and it’s too cute. Sasha sometimes exhibits herding behavior, but she knows not to mess with Sergio.

Wine and Love - Sasha and Sergio

* Sasha’s Halloween costume makes me smile, especially when she’s running around and the little man ends up waving his hat around. Too funny!

* Catching up on the first season of New Girl. I’ve been blowing through them since they’re less than 25 minutes long each!

  • lmao.. love the sasha and sergio pics. and that costume..RV showed me a video of her running in the park.. LOLS to death.. Aw that goosegiving looked absolutely delicious and super fall themed.. LOVE.

    Hope that sebaceous cyst gets in line and knows who’s boss!

    • Yeah, right now, allergies are showing me who’s boss. Hahaha.

      The costume is the best. I can’t think of a better one, so she might have to wear that many years in a row!

  • I hope you are feeling better.

    The Goosegivings pictures look great. I’m hungry now haha.

    Sasha…OMG…so cute!! Love New Girl!

    • Allergies are killing me, but hoping they go away soon.

      I only watched a few episodes of New Girl before, so I decided to sit down and get through season one. I watched the pilot when it first came out and wasn’t impressed, but I think the show’s picked up since then. I’m pretty bad about watching regularly, so these marathons are the way to go.

    I’m suffering from allergies too! My eyes are all puffy, it looks as if I’ve been smoking pot the whole day. Love: The Linkin Park concert on Wednesday night. Unfortunately, one person died when scaffolding fell on her. Hate: How much work I have to do. The fact that I have to fly to Pretoria for work, next week.

    Love the picture of your cat and dog. So cute!

    Goosegiving looks like so much fun & so very festive & delicious! Love it!

  • Kevin

    My mouth is watering looking at that goose (and the pie)! Cute costume for Sasha, too. We missed Halloween this year, so Posey didn’t get a costume. We’ll make it up to her somehow. :)

    Hope you’re feeling better!

  • LOVE Sasha’s costume – we had similar ones for our woofs one year. For the girl dog, Sadie, it was a princess in a riding saddle and came with a unicorn hat thing for Sadie. She hated it but it was so, so funny.

    Also? Goosegiving? LOVE IT.

  • Oh my god! Sasha’s costume is so cute, as is the “what?” expression on her face. She has no idea!

  • Sasha is so funny. Get well soon
