What’s Going On…
Happy Friday y’all! This week I’m just glad I’ve made it through to another weekend. I have now missed two weeks of Zumba classes due to this cough/cold and I’m getting grouchy about it. I really want to go but I know I’ll be sorry only a few minutes into a class. Just working on laundry and stuff around the house gets me gasping for breath and coughing up a storm. It’s not pretty folks. Though spending time on social media leaves me comforted by the fact that I’m not alone – I know so many people who have been sick! Misery loves company you know.
I was gladly able to get the holiday photos of the Sassy Cat crew done this week. That took all the energy I had! They are fairly good sports about it, but they do make me work hard for the few photos I manage to get. I hope you think they are as completely adorable as I do!
Have you ever read a book that just made you crave a certain food or drink? Did that book set in Italy make you seriously need a huge plate of pasta? Did a character indulge in a decadent slice of chocolate cake and now you need a piece ASAP? Maybe the book you’re reading would pair well with a glass of red or a frosty pint. Well, welcome to Book Cravings! Designed to be a fun way to share all your bookish food pairings, cravings and inspirations we’ll link up each Friday to chat about our reading and snacking life. Because books should always come with snacks.
I hate to admit it, but I’ve not been reading that much. Chalk it up to the coughing, but I just can’t seem to focus. I’m still reading The Rooster Bar and I do like it, but it’s taking me awhile to get through it. The fault is mine, certainly not the book! But I’m going to use at as this weeks Book Cravings post. The two main men characters are bartenders and there are a lot of scenes in a bar as you may guess from the title of the book. So, obviously this leads me to pair the book with….beer! I am a beer girl for sure and love to try out new things. We are lucky enough in my area to have a few local breweries and they have some really great offerings. Smartmouth is a widely distributed brewery but it’s made right here in Norfolk, Va. One of my favorites from them is CowCatcher. It’s a dark milk stout and oh so divine. What’s your favorite brewery or your favorite pint?
