However it was a lovely surprise to escape the salt-mines and step out into spring!
It was one of the beautiful-est days out there today.
Walking home I had to stop and take pictures of a sea of crocusesss on one lawn. They were frickin' everywhere.
So. I won a $100 liquor store gift card in a raffle just before Christmas.
Surprising as it sounds, I haven't used it yet. :o) The other day, silvrsolace brought me a BC Liquor Store Product Guide to help me with my grocery list.
My first look was the 'whiskies' just to see what they had in Highland Single Malts.
*OMG!* There is a "Macallan 50 year old Lalique" going for - wait for it - $7,731.77
What the hell! Who would even consider opening a seven thousand dollar bottle of anything?
But oooooh! Can you imagine the taste after fifty years? *sigh*
Anyway. I've been perusing the wines. There are too many to choose from!
So far "Beringers" is on the list already because it is practically nectar of the Gawds, "Painted Turtle" is on the list and so it "Phoque Blanc" just because of their names. But what else? Too.many.to.choose.from.....
So. Friendslist, do any of you have a wine you would love to recommend?
Also, I was surprised to see that there are "Organic Wines", and one vodka and a few beers. I might have to test taste some of them.
So, yeah, anybody please feel free to recommend some wines for me to buy, y'know y'wanna. :o)
