Life: Friday Ramblings

We had the best time at...
...our little anniversary celebration.  We took a few hours to ourselves and enjoyed.
Our first stop was an intimate dinner in an alleyway at a restaurant called Barrique Kitchen & Wine Bar.
We shared food with a flight of white wines, a meat & cheese platter, and a few tapas dishes.
Everything was spectacular and I think I even discovered my new favorite cheese.
We then took a quick walk to a local marina and dipped our toes into the water.
The grand finale was a stop for my favorite dessert, Cold Stone Creamery.
We only had a few hours, but it was a perfect way to celebrate 5 years.
Oh, and I would highly recommend Barrique for an adult outing!

That new, life changing cheese is...
...Boschetto al Tartufo.  It's a semi-soft cheese made with both cow and sheep's milk.

We're packing up for...
...our little trip to the Poconos to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday of 30!
He picked a family friendly resort with the country's largest indoor water park.
It not's really my cuppa, but it's also not my birthday celebration.

I finally gave in and bought...
...washable face masks from Old Navy.  I was hoping the pandemic would disappear, but then it didn't.
I can't stand wearing the medical grade ones that are so large they scrape my eye balls.
The ones I have now are adjustable, fit perfectly, and come in different colors to coordinate with outfits.

I'm really sick of hearing... busy one of my severely under worked employees thinks that she is.
I ask her to do simple tasks and she says "I don't really have the time to review".
Remember when I had to fire 8 people, well you weren't on the list because I knew you could handle more.
It infuriates me even more because I was in that role and did so many more tasks.
You can't fool someone that used to do the job herself less than 4 years ago!

We had lots of laughs at...
...a local bat safari that we decided to participate in.  No, I haven't completely lost my mind.
It started with a little presentation so the kiddies would know all about bats and where to find them.
Then the adventure started with a short walk to explore and seek out bats in their natural habitat.
There was plenty to be seen which resulted in lots of gasps, screeches, eeps, and laughs!

What are your Friday Ramblings?


  1. I've never had tarfuto or truffles, but I do like shrooms.
    It is your fault that you even allow such talk from your minions, if it was me I'd be like 'What did you say? Did I hear you reject work?' and then I would heap three times more work onto that wench and fire her if she does not do it :) You cannot let her choose what she will do and won't, freaking hell, you're the boss, not her. They need to be afraid of you, you are not their momma nor a friend, you are their boss.

    1. I know! I wrote her up last year for insubordination, but after time, she goes right back at it. After this latest stunt, I brought her into the office for another reprimanding and she just cried. To be honest, my real mistake was keeping her over other employees. She's capable of all the work, but just doesn't want to do it.

    2. She is now your punishment LOL

  2. I hate bats! So nasty! Lol!

    I’ve not had that cheese, but I’ll be on the lookout. That sounds like a very fun anniversary celebration! I hope your trip is a fun one and can’t wait to hear about it. I’ve never been there, but my parents honeymooned in the Poconos in 1961.

    1. After the safari, I realized that bats are kind of cool!! We may look into getting a bat house for the yard, but we have no trees to put it on. Maybe they make a giant stick to stick in the ground. LOL That's so funny. The Poconos is known for those types of trips. The heart shaped jacuzzis are the big joke because they are in most of the hotels over there.

  3. I am also not suitable to use medical masks that are larger than regular masks. So I always choose masks that are medium in size and to look less stylish I choose cloth masks with batik motifs or also traditional ethnic motifs typical of my country.
    Greetings :).

  4. She just sounds like a giant pain in the butt. I'd fire her butt after doing it for so long.

    Bats, birds and now water with feces in it. You really are branching out.

  5. Relax....

    # Nice to read about your Friday rambling

  6. I think bats are adorable. I'd like to go on a bat safari!

    Ugh to the crappy employee. You would think watching her coworkers lose their jobs she'd be on top of her game knowing that all the jobs there are expendable. What a twit.


  7. i couldn't believe that i would ever be re-unite with my ex-lover, i was so traumatize staying all alone with no body to stay by me and to be with me, but i was so lucky one certain day to meet this powerful spell caster Dr Akhere,after telling him about my situation he did everything humanly possible to see that my lover come back to me,indeed after casting the spell my ex-lover came back to me less than 48 hours,my ex-lover came back begging me that he will never leave me again,3 months later we got engaged and married,if you are having this same situation just contact Dr Akhere on his email: thanks very much sir for restoring my ex-lover back to me,his email: or call/whatsapp:+2349057261346

    hindi ako makapaniwala na kailanman ay muling makiisa ako sa aking kasintahan, labis akong na-trauma sa pananatiling nag-iisa na walang katawan na manatili sa akin at makakasama ko, ngunit napakasuwerte ako sa isang tiyak na araw upang matugunan ito malakas na spell caster na si Dr Akhere, matapos sabihin sa kanya ang tungkol sa aking sitwasyon ginawa niya ang lahat ng makataong posible upang makita na ang aking kasintahan ay bumalik sa akin, sa katunayan matapos na ihagis ang spell ang aking dating kasintahan ay bumalik sa akin ng mas mababa sa 48 oras, dumating ang dating kasintahan ko. bumalik sa pagmamakaawa sa akin na hindi na niya ako pababayaan, 3 buwan mamaya kami ay nakipag-ugnay at nag-asawa, kung nagkakaroon ka ng parehong sitwasyong ito makipag-ugnay lamang kay Dr Akhere sa kanyang email: maraming salamat sa sir sa pagpapanumbalik ng aking dating kasintahan bumalik sa akin, ang kanyang email: o tumawag / whatsapp: +2349057261346
