Meet My Friend the Marquis

I (sadly) haven't run since my inglorious treadmill event on Tuesday.  I'll try again next week!  So, instead of running, I have been coming home and enjoying a glass of wine at night while reading my latest book (just finished The Poisoners Handbook).  My new found favorite, courtesy of Traci and the First Avenue Winehouse  is Australian and called Marquis Philips.  I've tried both the merlot and the cabernet and they are fantastic!

I started out drinking lighter whites, and have slowly progressed to reds.  I'm happy to say I'm beginning to taste the  differences in various wines.  My goal is to just enjoy a glass of wine.  I don't aim to become a wine expert; I think that would take the fun out of it.  I've learned a lot from going to wine tastings and recommends from friends.  I'm so happy my friend Bud has joined me on the red wagon.  I had to stop and wait awhile, but he finally hopped on and admitted he enjoyed reds more than whites.  Yes!

Anyway, take a moment to pop a cork (or untwist a cap) and enjoy some wine.  I find it makes me stop, take a deep breath, and relax a bit after a hectic day.  If only books were made with a wine glass holder, I'd be all set!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Poisoner's Handbook? Please tell me you didn't start reading it until AFTER you fed us!

  2. Nuts! It looks like I got my calculations wrong.....I'll have to double check. When are you free for lunch again? :}

  3. Don't throw those precious corks away. C_Joy can do marvellous things with them... ;D

  4. C-Joy and I have a long history with wine corks. Well, especially the wine that was in the bottles that the corks came from! I will save them up and gift them to her. Have a great week!


Did you know comments taste like chocolate mousse? I looooove chocolate mousse--leave a comment and feed me.
