Went to a fundraiser last night. Was put off by the host of the event because of some of the comments he made. It was a horse show and there seem to be a lot of people, at least the ones I have met, that are pretty full of themselves. This fundraiser was for the horse show they do each year. The host made comments that this was an event that only a select few should be attending. If you were looking for hot dogs and beer you needed to go to the tent next door. Now that in itself was not that snobby but the wine tasting they were having was all gallo wines! The craft beers were from the local brewery. No special stuff here. The food was good but nothing to write home about and the tickets to this exclusive event were 35 bucks........So all the comments about expanding your pallet and tasting notes on the wines was kind of stupid. Had it not been for my friends it would have been a total bust.
Eating this week has been a bust for the most part. Breakfast and lunch have been good but dinner has still been a real problem. Don't have my answer yet I guess. Will keep trying. It will click sooner or later.
A thought on forgiveness. Make sure you forgive yourself as well as others.
Saturday evening I am supposed to go to a friends house. She has a difficult time making schedules work and the last few times she has cancelled. Not a big most the time but it does make me reluctant to make plans where she is involved. Just can't count on them. So LOL I will see what tomorrow brings.
Things I am thankful for:
experiments that come out the way you expect
Never giving up
Lots of work to do
