Six On Sunday, Version 10

1. Cakebread. The Best Chardonnay Ever. Ever. Hands down. If you haven’t tried it, I strongly suggest you do immediately.

So Amazing.

2, Sangria. I made a light, fruity, almost sweet white sangria this week. I always make white because I have a nasty habit of spilling… White is WAY easier to remove.  I normally hate sweet anything, but this turned out really well. I credit Trader Joe’s for their huge selections of inexpensive, delicious wines.  Also, I cut my sangria with champagne instead of club soda so it is possible that the extra alcohol makes it seem better than it is. Whatever. My girlfriends and I enjoyed it.

3. Air Conditioning. Is genius. I spent some time outside this weekend.  And, I spent some time in an inside that was really an outside- a cabin with no AC. It is good to have these reminders of how good we have it!

4. Single Gal Time. On Friday night, I was both husbandless and childless until about eight o’clock. It was HEAVEN! It was quiet. It was restful. I was on my own schedule! I sat in my living room, which itself is a treat because it is an accident waiting to happen with all of the breakable, shiny things on the shelves.  I had a nice glass of wine and read. I read a book with more words than pictures!  It was wonderful to see my family when they got home… however; they could totally give me the evening off whenever they want to.


5. Memory Lane. The house I grew up in is on the market again. My family went to the open house.  My sisters had fun telling stories, and my parents were able to give the realtor a few ‘hidden’ features, like the safe in the floor of the master closet. Also, my Nerinx Hall high school sticker was still on the window! I put that sucker up in 1994! (God LORD I am old!). It is nice to know a small part of me is still in that house.

My sticker!


6. Google and its spawn. I just got a new laptop, and it does not have Office on it.  I have only used Microsoft products, and I have no experience with things like Chrome, Google Docs, and everything else Google. I can perform a search, and that’s about it…  I am looking forward to learning Google, and having it take over my life (the amount of information they have on a person is unreal!).


  1. Google Docs will change your life! In the short term, you can download OpenOffice (for free) to get the old school Office feeling.

    • I knew you would save me! Thanks. I am going to download tonight… maybe another Meet Up on The Brillance Of All Things Google?

  2. Gotta love store-bought air!

    single gal time can be the greatest sometimes!

    come say hi at and have a wonderful week!

  4. You will love Google Docs and Google Chrome – definitely the BEST way to store files and to search the web. Seriously. Can’t wait to try Cakebread. Chardonnay is my absolute favorite and I’m always up for trying a recommendation. I’m going shopping tonight for a wine get together tomorrow – hopefully my local store will have it!

    • All the smart tech people tell me that! Just a warning: Cakebread is rather, um, pricy. It is a SPECIAL treat at our house. More affordable chardonnays I enjoy include Kendall Jackson and Clos de Bois. All three are oaky and buttery (to my uneducated pallet). Let me know what you think!

  5. Cakebread sounds like something I really want to try. I usually prefer Riesling or Moscato but any white wine will make me smile.
