Malbec is a word I normally associate with red wine. A red wine from Argentina or Chile. I haven't found a Malbec that I haven't liked yet.
So of course these shoes caught my eye. You can't drink them, but they sure look pretty. They won't be coming home with me anytime soon because:
I wear black boots to work
These are $178.00
Miss Albright shoes never fit true to size so I'd need to try them on first
In 5 weeks I'll be out of work so now is not the time to spend $200 on a pair of shoes!
I have an eclectic taste in music. My iPod has everything from classical to rock to pop to dance to hip hop to rap to R&B to country and a tiny bit of jazz. The only thing I don't really like is heavy metal. And I love Christmas music, weird I know. Very few of my friends on this side of the world have heard of Tommy Emmanuel.
He's an Australian guitar player who has been around for a long time. Back when I was still a teenager he played on recordings for Air Supply and Men at Work and was then part of the band Dragon.
He become a little more prominent overseas when he and his brother Phil, performed during the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony.
A fingerstyle guitarist Tommy Emmanuel was inspired at a young age by Chet Atkins. As an adult he recorded and album with Chet Atkins. In 1999, in Nashville, Chet Atkins presented him with the guitar world's highest honour - the C.G.P. Award (Certified Guitar Player). Chet Atkins bestowed the C.G.P. award on only 4 guitar players, Tommy Emmanuel, Steve Wariner, John Knowles and Jerry Reed. That's pretty impressive, no?
Anyways, Tommy is currently recording a Christmas Album that's due out later this year. And if it's not in my stocking or someone doesn't downlown it for me, then I download it myself.
Barb, Rose and I had a wonderful evening at The Scandinave Spa in Whistler. I'd love to go back again. Guess what I saw at Costco? Gift cards for The Scandinave Spa. $100.00 worth of gift cards for $79.99. Make a good wedding anniversary or Christmas present, wouldn't it? It would cover the entry fee and I can put the rest towards a massage or lunch. Or a second entry.
I went to the Home and Garden show yesterday. It's always dangerous when I do this. I didn't buy or order anything at the show. But I do have big plans for our house! Not really. Just for the living room and the 2nd bathroom.
This is our living room now.
I've developed a liking for yellow. I want to change out the rug, for a yellow rug.

I would like this storage ottoman for our Wii paraphenalia. It's big enough to store the remotes, the 2 rockband guitars, the drumkit, the wii fit board and the games. I'd put it between the fireplace and the wall (behind the green chair). And we could use it as extra seating when we have friends over for drinks.
Oh and I'm still looking for a new coffee table. One that I can buy in the US or Canada.
