Who's In + Have a Fun Weekend!

{Wine of the mind.}

What are you up to this weekend? I am slowly getting myself back in the routine after a nice, refreshing vacation (read: staycation). All in all our holiday was really lovely.
How have you been, my dear friends?

Share a glass of wine with your partner or a friend tonight. Have fun. Life is not only about work.
By the way, do you like beer or wine? Just curious.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Cheers! xx

My weekend is Friday. We are finishing up a great week of Vacation Bible School. I'm teaching the older kids who are also "helpers" (they're junior high age. Then if the weather improves, in the afternoon, I'll go to Palouse Falls and walk around. Saturday is my sermon writing day and Sunday is worship in the morning and naptime and unwinding in the afternoon.

Pues compartir una copa con un viejo amigo ese es mi plan, que tu fin de semana sea agradable y feliz.

Make that a margarita and I'm in! However, I would fall asleep right after drinking it.

Have a great weekend yourself, Betty! I am off on a charity shop jaunt and to meet my friend Suzanne for afternoon tea tomorrow!

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Betty, Sounds like you have had a great summer --and vacation. We will be on vacation next week--but it will be a short one to the mountains in North Carolina...

We are not beer drinkers --but do like some wine every now and again....

Hugs,
Betsy

Leovi said...

I love how you picked up the light in those glasses, great shot! Hugs!

I have to say I am a wine person. No beer for me. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

eileeninmd said...

Betty, so glad you had a nice staycation! Sounds relaxing! I like both wine and beer. Sometimes it depends on whether if I am eating something with the beer or wine.

Wishing you a happy week!

...hello dear Betty, I'm glad of your beautiful holidays, I love good wines, but with a good pizza I prefer a blonde Heineken ... good weekend .. hug ...

Terri said...

I'll take a Dr. Pepper- I never have liked the taste of wine or beer...just weird I guess. Glad you had a nice relaxing staycation!

Kelly said...

Beer for me. Cheers!!

Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend, Betty!

George said...

We're going to have a fairly quiet weekend at home. Next week we'll take a short trip to the North Carolina mountains to celebrate Betsy's birthday.

dianne said...

Great photo dear Betty. I am dining in a restaurant with my children this evening to celebrate two birthdays.

Have a lovely weekend too!

xoxoxo ♡

Rick said...

Sometimes a staycation beats the hustle and bustle of a 'vacation'.

As for beer or wine - I'm ambidextrous - I can drink either ;>)

Enjoy your weekend. We're relaxin' at home before travelling over the next 2 weeks.

ANRAFERA said...

Thank you Betty for your desires, equally I wish you a happy weekend. To share a glass of wine with your dear persons and friends is slightly wonderful.
I drink with all you ... health!
An embrace.

Fabulous, the bouquet of the wine and that you have generated a great photo. hug

SweetMarie said...

So glad you've been enjoying your time!
I love sweet iced tea! :) Add a shot of rum. LOL

Hilary said...

Oh what a lovely shot. I have always loved wine but have spent all of my adult life wanting to like beer.. and never did.. until last year. Suddenly something clicked and I started enjoying it.

Chatty Crone said...

You were on a stay-cation and I am so glad you had a good time.

I like Beringer's White Sin or I mean Zinfandel!

ZielonaMila said...

Georgia said...

Welcome back!!
Wonderful photo.

....Petty Witter said...

Glad to hear you enjoyed your staycation. A tea-totaller, at the moment my favourite tipple is a non-alcoholic elderflower'wine'.

Ariel said...

Hi Betty,
good morning,
I'm glad you're back,
lovely holiday, eh?
thats great!

About the question,
I prefer the Anis,
but between beer and wine ...
mmm... both equally, but not mixed =S
(ok ok ok, for a toast ...
wine, no doubt) =D

I wish you a wonderful week
a kiss and a hug

Craver Vii said...

Welcome back!

I'm in! :-) Many of my friends do not drink at all, and I will not imbibe to excess. I have a self-imposed 2-drink limit. Off-the-cuff, my preference is dry red wines, but of course it depends on what we're pairing it with. But this weekend, I enjoyed a couple of beers.

This weekend I discovered Magic Hat's #9, the "Not Quite Pale Ale." It is a light-bodied brew with a mild citrus blend. There is a hint of fruit up front, and it does not have a bitter aftertaste, so they've successfully blended the apricot and hopps.

I also tried Blue Moon's Agave Nectar Ale. This one is also light-bodied and sweet. Agave is a honey-like sweetener. I drank a bottle after working on the back lawn, and I should have used water to quench my thirst. I like my beer very cold--almost frozen, and this one was not cold enough, yet.

My wife though... She only likes a very few sweet wines, and doesn't like beer at all. It's funny that our tastes differ so much.

The Domestic Sweetheart said...

Hope you enjoyed your vino...I know I did :) Happy Monday!

Pat Tillett said...

I had a great weekend and I usually do. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay-cation. I will drink and enjoy just about every drink known to man.
Overall, a glass of beer that is almost freezing is my favorite.

yonca said...

I like wine..love having a glass of wine while cooking also before dinner.
how r u? miss you xx

Bitch said...

Hello my dear friend Betty-darling!
I prefer a glass of wine, but it depends of the thirst!!
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a note, my dear!!
I found you at Flickr... !!!!
Have a great weekend..
Hugs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DeniseinVA said...

This is a great photo Betty, so cheery. I enjoy a glass of wine when I go out with friends. I only developed a taste of beer in my later years, at parties on hot days in the summer when a nice cold beer would be offered, and now my husband and I share an occasional bottle of beer in the evenings.

EG CameraGirl said...

I like staycations! You get to sleep in your own bed at night.

I like an occasional glass of Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay. :)

imac said...

Same here my friend. Holls and getting back to reality.
Great post and cheers.

ladyfi said...

Nice shot. Enjoy your staycation.

I love champagne!

KrippledWarrior said...

cheers Betty, I went to the zoo this weekend

Unknown Mami said...

What a wonderful photograph. I'm not up to much just enjoying a bit of "free" time.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I love how perfect the sparkly star of light came out on that wine glass.

Be well, Betty.
It's great to see you making rounds again. Thanks for visiting.

Mocadeaux said...

Red wine is definitely my drink of choice but at the right time and the right place there is nothing better than a pint of Guinness!

HansHB said...

A lovely composition, well done!

imac said...

Love this shot.

Theresa said...

Such a pretty shot! I think this would make a great photo for a New Years Eve spread.

I don't drink, so make mine a sweet tea, please :)
