A while back, I tried tackling a paisley owl and didn’t quite hit the mark. This time around, I made it work. The inspiration? An old piece of fabric and…the fair! This weekend I will be taking in all of the wonders of the local fair.

Today I had my last round of allergy testing. It was an interesting visit. I’m officially allergic to mold and house dust AND my doc thinks I should have a nose job. No joke. The official issues: enlarged something-or-others, deviated septum…and that weird lump on my nose. The doc called it a chondroma, but that sounds too serious to me. Basically the cartilage in my nose has decided to continue to grow on one side while the other side has decided it’s all good.
Here’s the thing: It doesn’t really bother me since I only see it when I see my reflection, and as long as I take my allergy medicines, I feel fine. So I’ll keep my pointy, not-so-little nose–thank you very much…at least until I feel like there’s a really, REALLY good reason to chop it up!
Yep, I’ve still got the incredible Raspberry Wine from Maize Valley Winery stuck in my head. If my glasses of raspberry wine had been allowed to touch a napkin, I’m sure that the stain it would have left would have looked something like this owl. But, I did not let a single drop of it go to waste. It was that good!
It’s another late post, but I have a really good reason for it. The nonprofit I work with had a Wine Tasting, and I had a ton of prep work to get done.
If you ever get a chance, you’ve got to head out to Maize Valley Market & Winery and be sure to try the Raspberry wine. It’s the tastiest raspberry wine I’ve ever had. Of course, a visit to Maize Valley wouldn’t be complete without some Hanky Panky and a Big Red Pecker. What? They’re wonderful wines!
