Today is it! Done! Kaput! Last day of the A to Z challenge. I cant even begin to tell you the stress and anxiety I had leading up to day 1 (letter A). I do good just to sometimes even post once a week maybe 3 times MAX! It was the Monday, Friday, Saturday posts that scared me. I even had to travel to California for a week and I was worried about that too. BUT I did it. I survived and man I'm glad I did! I have earned a few more followers and more blogs that I'm following to my list. Some sweet , creative and fun people. I looked at the sign up list yesterday and there was actually 1,544 people signed up. I was number 385 on the list.
I need to tell everyone that comments on my blog- I reply back via my phone or email. Every single comment. More than half of my commenters are NOREPLYbloggers. I am willing to bet you money that you don't realize you are. This means that you're not getting my responses back. That makes me sad. I don't want you think I am ignoring and that I don't comment back. I rarely reply back to your comment in my blog because I have a corporate job and my laptop doesn't allow me on Blogger, FB, etc. and its easier to comment from my phone. My cousin had to tell me when I was a no -reply blogger because I didn't realize I was.
Now back to the letter Z. When I was first branching out wanting to drink wine, I started drinking white Zinfandel. I liked the sweetness of it and it made me feel grown up. LOL. Then fast forward 15 years and I spent a lot of time at wineries in California when I was there working. I went to never drinking red wines to ONLY drinking red wines now. I will drink a chardonnay occasionally during the summer but I do prefer reds. If you're not real familiar with the many kinds of wines like Cabernets, Merlots, Chablis, Pinot Noirs or Grigios, etc, you may not know that there is also a Red Zinfandel too. Zinfandels tend to be fruity and a little spicy at same time. The fruits are more like a cherry or raspberry fruits. They are delicious but they are not sweet. Not anything like its sister white zinfandels. I do prefer Cabernets and blends overall.
This one is my favorite:
It is yummy!!
Right now as I drive thru neighborhoods, I am so enjoying peoples gorgeous gardens that are blooming. I don't garden but I love looking at all the flowers. Zinnias are so pretty to me. My very favorite flower is Tulips. What is your favorite flower? Do you garden? I like to buy a bunch of tulips for my table from my grocery store.
Y'all have a super Thursday will ya!!
