We've been back from vacation for almost a week and oh boy, do we miss it. So great to have a break, so wonderful to be able to drive a few hours and be in a completely different atmosphere. LOVE Central Oregon! Have you been able to have a break yet? Well, if not, how about we have a little one now at the Virtual Girls Night Out?!
For our weekly Friday night blog party all you need to make this party complete is to grab a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers! If you choose to leave your link to participate in a blog hop please do! I started this blog party in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since. To participate In The Virtual GNO: Enjoy this post! Or, if you would like, link up your blog below and visit your fellow party guests - say "Happy VGNO!!!" Share the blog game/meme on your site to play along. Also, I have a great Giveaway right... over...HERE.
Time For Some Tunes!
The Sunday's "Summertime"
I've been going through a late '80's / '90's alt music phase this Summer. The Smiths, The Psychedelic Furs, Cocteau Twins. Ah, youth. (For those of you who say "That's before my time" - aah, yeah. How nice for you.) What were you listening to in the '90's?
Time For A Cocktail!
- 1/2 cup(s) fresh or frozen raspberries for garnish
- 2 cup(s) cranberry-raspberry juice
- 2 cup(s) seltzer
- 2 tablespoon(s) lime juice, plus 4 wedges for garnish
- 6 ounce(s) (3/4 cup) vodka
- If using fresh raspberries, freeze them in a single layer for about 1 hour (or overnight) before proceeding with Step 2.
- Combine cranberry-raspberry juice, seltzer, lime juice, and vodka in a pitcher. Divide among 4 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with frozen raspberries and lime wedges.
Sounds delightful. Cheers!
Time For Some Knowledge!
For those of you who don't know how to create a "cent" symbol when you're writing about prices, etc. I've found out how to do it! Well, I found out for Microsoft Windows. (If you're an Apple user - time to search!). Here's the formula: Push your Num Lock button. While holding down the Alt key push the numbers 0162 then voila! A little cent symbol appears. (Num Lock + Alt key + 0162 = ¢).
I hope you enjoy your Virtual GNO everyone! I think I'll try to find my Walkman and play some tapes. My girls will be so-o-o-o confused ;-> . Thanks for stopping by. Cheers!
