Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

Fried Chicken and Chardonnay

Yep, it's Monday!
Had my massage - which actually was very needed because my head has been hurting since last Monday. Stress? Back issues? Sinuses? Who knows.

After that, I headed to Ballard Market to get some fried chicken and wine.

Actually, funny story. I was just giddy, standing in front of the chicken counter. I couldn't decide what to get. Two legs? One leg and a thigh? Ack! The guy behind the counter laughed and said it sounded like a big decision. I told him this was huge! I get one night a week when the vegetarian boyfriend is gone and I can eat whatever I want (I can always eat what I want, but I feel guilty when Steve's across from me and I'm trying to be all girly). He laughed and asked if my boyfriend forbid me to eat meat. I said no, but I choose not to. So that when I do eat meat, I feel bad. Like, good bad. Hee hee.

Eventually, I decided on a leg and thigh. And the guy said "That's all? Come on....be bad..." I said, "Yeah, yeah, gimme another leg!" Grrrrr....

So I had my chicken, tabouli salad, and a glass of chardonnay*. Ahhhh.....

And speaking of chardonnay - I cannot have a glass of that stuff without thinking about my sister. Wendy and I would take her sailboat out during the summer, when I had my cleaning business and didn't work everyday, and have a glass of wine and just sit out in the middle of Puget Sound.

To give you a visual, here's what I think about when I have a glass of chardonnay:





Beautiful, huh?

I want a boat.
