Last night, we had a social event here at the Peterson house, and sangria was on the bill. It got me very tipsy very quickly! I wouldn’t recommend having much more to drink after this (as I did, with 2 glasses of wine, which took me out). But it was so tasty, I thought I’d share.
3/4 cup of Bacardi 151 rum (twice that much if you’re doing normal rum)
1 cup orange juice
Red wine (Spanish, if you can help it!), chilled
Mix the first three line items in a pitcher and let it all sit and marinate in the fridge. When you’re ready to serve, add in the orange juice and chilled wine. We also added in ice.
But no, really, don’t have anything afterward- especially not 14 percent alcohol wine. I kind of have a few disconcerting missing spots in my memory of last night. I’d say this sangria’s a cheaper, quicker way to get people socializing.
Just woke up from a disturbing dream. I had fallen asleep as I did last night, and then just slept for a year and a half straight. Joe had gotten an earring and tattoos and many others in my dream also acted as if their lives had spun out of control. They were enough like themselves, however, that I was convinced it was real. In all that time, my mom called the shots, saying she had always been inclined to let me sleep.
The nightmare, though? Despite elections not happening in the next year and a half, the country had elected a South Carolina Republican to the Presidency.
Zack stood firmly in Warrior 3 position as Katie and Joe surveyed their childhood belongings, which their mother had asked them to sort through. Joe had found his Lego boat, which he considered a masterpiece, and set it on the coffee table next to Zack. Zack stayed in Warrior 3, a challenging pose that Joe always favored as well.
Joe said, “Isn’t that awesome?”
Katie responded, “Yeah, but I think he could go deeper into the pose.”
Just so you all know, every day I’m going to do one of the requirements for this Tumblr challenge. The rest of the list is at the original source…
To my knowledge there wasn’t a Star Wars themed challenge so I figured I’d make one up and hopefully get all the way through this one. Feel free to change/edit/add/make a suggestion on this, as I came up with it in just a few minutes. :)
