A Refined Evening


Since this is the last Friday night free of classes and homework for a few months, I decided that I'd have a nice glass of wine. Which is a definite change of pace from the last few times I've had alcohol. The above is a picture of the wine rack and glasses that I got for Christmas, along with the bottle of Turning Leaf and the corkscrew that Farmmom got me. In the rack is the strawberry wine that my friend Tev and her husband made and gave me as a gift two years ago.

What? I don't drink wine that often, and I haven't found an occasion special enough for it yet. I'm kind of glad, though, cause it looks pretty spiffy in that rack.

Well, I'm off to enjoy my wine and watch House. A happy and safe weekend to you all!

I was just wondering if you know not to keep merlot in direct sunlight. I don't know where I heard it, but it seems sunlight breaks it down somehow.

Mustanger... I can't afford a Merlot that doesn't come with it's own special sunlight blocking container, also known as a box. LOL

I'm not a wine connoisseur, I just enjoy an occasional glass.

Right. I'm not a wine connoiseur either. Basically though, I'm just saying I heard not to set it in a window or where sunlight can get to it. Mostly, the wine stays in the refrigerator it stays cool and dark. Jim Beam's another story.
