We Are Drinking a Beer at Noon on Tuesday

I woke up this morning channeling my inner Martha. I was pumped and ready to rock. My day started off with a little sewing, a little baking and a new chili recipe. I probably would have painted my bedroom, refinished a dresser and organized all the junk drawers in the house, but the chili recipe called for half a cup of...


which is about 1/3 of a bottle. I couldn't let the other 2/3 of that bottle go to waste. Now could I?  


Of course not. 

Now it only takes me about 1/3 of a bottle to catch a buzz. I had 2/3. 

I felt goooood. BSD would have totally gotten some had he been home.

I can see why some moms make a habit of this. Sure would make doing the laundry a lot more fun. 

But I didn't do any laundry today. And I didn't paint my bedroom. Or refinish that dresser. Or organize any junk drawers. 

I did do a little sewing though. 


And I did bake some chocolate chip muffins.


And I did make a damn good pot of chili.


So maybe drinking a beer at noon on Tuesday Wednesday isn't such a bad idea after all?

Ha!!!

Loving this! I'm a light weight, too. In college my nickname was 2-can Dani.

Sometimes drinking mid-day is needed. I've considered bringing a flask to school.

Kidding.

Enjoy the night

I did the same thing a couple weeks ago...needed 1/2 cup of beer for the crockpot...and thought, I can't let this go to waste! It felt so strange to have a beer (alone) in the afternoon!
Your chili looks sooooooo good...and I love your cute bowl!

I'm guessing that even Martha occassionally ties one on in the afternoon too. Otherwise, how can everything be "a good thing"
