Wine and Whine

How has your day been?  Mine has been stressful and eventful.  Making a blog move isn’t the easiest thing.  But so worth it!

However last night I was majorly freaking out feeling a little overwhelmed and stressed.  Not trying to Whine, of course. The fact that I had sat at my computer chair for over 16 hours yesterday wasn’t helping.  Not exaggerating on that one.

I looked in the fridge

And didn’t think I was going to dip into any Hpnotiq or Bailey’s.  Although a Buttery Nipple is always fun.

And I did actually want to dip into the Veuve.  But I didn’t need a whole bottle for myself.  Well, maybe that would have been ok.

Or this is really amazing rose champagne.  Much better than the last time I drank champagne in Aruba Or tried to. That champagne ended up down the kitchen sink.  I would never waste a drop of the Nicolas.

But I settled on something I found that’s ancient that was taking up space in the fridge.

And it hit the spot.

From my last post about the Biggie Microwave Banana Oat Cake, glad you liked it.  If you need a way to use up your extra bananas, check out this post.

And thanks for filling me in on everything from picture uploading details to whether or not you can save half for later.  Most of you aren’t good savers.  Shocking.

A couple housekeeping details are that many of the links in the Recipes Tab are working.  I’d say about 80% are right and the rest of them are being worked on and everything will be back to normal with correct pathways, soon.

Also, if you commented on my previous two posts…

…And your comment disappeared from my site, I know. In getting the recipe links restored and corrected, some of the comments were lost but are being put back on.

And if for some reason you are reading this from your Google Reader and can’t access my site.  That’s your server not updating.  Nothing you can do other than be patient and it will self-correct in a day or so.

Dessert: Raw Vegan Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies

After a day or two like mine, chocolate + more chocolate = perfect.  You can also bake these in the oven.  Or just eat the raw dough.  Not a bad idea.  And safe because they’re vegan and GF.

1. Did you get a workout in today?

Dear Lord, I needed a workout like never before.  Stress, stress, stress from this bloggie stuff. And am glad I rocked a 20-minute at-home workout and a run in the 65F weather!

2. Favorite Wine? Or champagne, or green juice, or tea.  I just did a post on some of my favorite coffees. What’s a favorite wine beverage of yours?

3. Favorite Whine? Anything you want to whine about or your favorite and/or recurring whine?

I like to whine about:

My blog migration

Not having enough time in the day to get everything done

I won’t say the weather because it’s nearly perfect in San Diego, but I know lots of you like to whine about winter weather

Money woes.  We all whine about that, right?

Not getting enough sleep

What are some of your whines? All in all, I am a really upbeat person but it’s fun to just let your whines out, right!

See you later gang!

  1. I simply want to mention I’m newbie to blogging and seriously liked this website. Probably I’m likely to bookmark your site . You amazingly have excellent posts. Thanks a bunch for sharing with us your blog.

  2. No worries! Sorry to bug – I’m sure you’re getting tons of questions like that :-p good luck!! :)

  3. Love the new look for the blog! I know you’re switching things over – but wondering if you’re going to post the recipe for the raw chocolate chip cookies again when you get the chance. The link sadly doesn’t work :) no rush…want to pull out the dehyd this weekend! :)


  4. Favourite beverage: green tea, white tea or peppermint tea.

    Whines: Switching to a new computer at work (and the headache that goes with it); lack of sleep; people farting on the bus during the commute to work; and traffic on game nights

  5. I like to whine about my house always looking like a disaster, my alarm going off and how my hair is taking for-ever to grow back to the lenth I want it. But I bet if you talk to my hubby he’d give you a MUCH larger list of my whines…LOL

  6. Congrats on the move on over to WordPress. I’m a big WP fan myself.

    It must be moveover season, as I recently moved my site to WordPress. I realized that my old site had the look of “1999 called. It wants its website back.” LOL! Now my Yoga site looks so much more fresh and more my style.

    Onward to whining: I love to whine about my busy schedule and having not enough time off. But the truth is, I have a fair amount of flexibility in my sked, and I love what I do, so it’s actually pretty great. Just a matter of finding that right balance, which is a constant re-negotiation process. :-)

    Congrats again on the new site. Looks fab!

    my fave beverages: wine (red and white), cocktails like mojitos, club soda, water, almond milk and coffee.

    i like to whine about: right now…mostly about trying to get a residency training. and of course money always comes up. esp bc i’m off to buenos aires in april!! :))

  12. I like to whine about my schoolwork to anyone that will listen. It makes me feel better :)

  13. Your pictures look incredible in this post!

  14. Loving the new site – damn I can’t believe you finally made the move! Tech stuff got to be such a headache that I just gave up on my blog haha (but I’ll be making a comeback soon, I’m getting a good camera and everything).

    Whining- the cold, public transportation, the snow, paying bills (haha). Major, major whine: registering for classes is a BITCH. But I didn’t let any of that stop me from getting my workout on. I’m glad I have all kinds of free time right now, I can do at least an hour of Pilates every day and sometimes I hit the gym for cardio after.

  15. loooove the new look! It’s so classy, just like you :)
    I did not really exercise today, unless you count walking extreeemely quickly from my apartment to class and back, in 18 degree weather- about 1.5 miles round trip!
    I’ve never had Veuve…but am desperate to try it! I have never been able to make the splurge, but I think I will get a bottle for graduating from grad school…in about a year and a half haha

  16. I LOVE Nicolas Feuillatte! Have you seen the 1/4 bottles? Too cute – My sis gave them as stocking stuffers two Christmases ago…perfection!

  17. No workout today. :-( Favorite wine–pinot noir. Current whine: snow.
