Hot

The heat index today at work was the highest they post, 5. I am surviving. I'm getting used to sweating. Funny what can become normal when it is, well, normal. I am drinking a glass of wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. The cheapest in the PX at $4.99/bottle. The one I know I like was $6.99/bottle, and I got a bottle of it, also. Both from Chile, so I had hopes. The cheaper one is a bit dry for me. It is definitely drinkable, though. I'd take it to a party, although not here as there is so little choice at the PX everyone would know I brought the cheapest bottle there. If I went to any parties here that is. My own choice. I hear the drama and drinking and I figure I am good with just dealing with my own issues and not everyone elses' as well.

No bites from any of the jobs I've applied for. So, I have avoided needing to make a decision. It's all good. I'm doing little baby steps, hanging on for the weekend. I'm reading MrMoneyMustache.com, started at the first blog post and reading all the comments as well. I'm not caught up to the present yet. It is keeping me from splurging. Well, other than for the wine. I haven't been knitting as the sweater is large enough now that it is hot to work on. Who'd a thunk, a 100% wool sweater, summer in Honduras, and hot. sigh. May start a pair of socks in the meantime.

Only 9 weeks till I go home for vacation. Not that I'm counting...

  1. I understand level 5 is the highest but degree wise what would that translate to?

    At least you are drinking Chilean wine from a bottle...I had Franzia wine(California) from a box tonight :D

  3. My father-in-law used to make great wine. He grafted European vines onto American root stocks so that they would grow well in his back acreage.
