Lazy Sunday

Hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine's day. Just because I don't really believe in Valentine's day did not stop me from drinking champagne:)

On Friday, I bought the pink champagne. Must say that price have gone up.

We wanted to do the outside picnic but it was way too cold and windy. We decided to save it for another day. After all, Valentine's day is every day. Right? So we went to a grocery store called Whole Foods for lunch and shopping. I don't know if you have heard of the store but Whole Foods but it is lots of cities now. It started in Austin as a small store and that's where all the hippies shopped. Organic food, buy directly from the farmer etc. Now it stores in a lot of cities and even world-wide.

They opened up a huge Whole Foods here in Austin a few years ago. Did I say it is huge? They have many, many options for eating. We chose the sit down area and ordered some pasta. The cool thing is that you can pick any wine from the store and they will open it for you.

As soon we sat down, I took a photo of this lovely rose. Promptly someone popped up and told me politely to stop taking photos. I tried to tell them that I was a world famous photographer and blogger but he did not change his mind. Oh well. After that, I lost a little interest in everything. Actually what happened is this. I kept looking everywhere and found some great photo opportunities. But darn it. I couldn't take photos.

After partaking champagne in the morning, wine with lunch and pasta, I had to go home and take a nap. We did manage to buy some groceries before we left.

For dinner, we had lobster, asparagus, and stuffed portabella mushrooms. It was delicious but I was still full from the pasta.

Then came the chocolate attack. This was really an attack because I did not even bother to take photos of the chocolate. I attacked the chocolate like a dog attacks a bone.

So today, I am just going to putter around.

Tomorrow is the last episode of the wine opera. I am looking forward to it. It has been an interesting journey. I'll share some more information next week.

I hope you have a fabulous Sunday. See you soon!

Mytho: They are afraid that someone will steal their ideas. It is very silly actually.

We did absolutely was great, lol!

MM: That sounds wonderful too. You have young kids who keep you busy. Our kiddos are in college so we have to make an effort to get out. Otherwise, I'd be on the computer all day long:)

That sounds like a great time, except for the picture thing.

You're always welcome to take snaps at the Food Here. I think I have the classier place...

Enjoy your lazy Sunday

Nicole: I just don't get. Don't you think that someone who was taking photos to "spy" would bring a secret camera? Instead of the big ass bulky camera with a large lens? So silly. I am tempted to buy a mini-secret camera just for this. LOL.

Ram: I am on my way! Thanks for visiting and commenting. Your blog is crazy hilarious:)

The guy at Whole Foods obviousley did not know who you were! How dare they stop you!

OMG! The part about the chocolate and eating it like a dog with a bone. You are hysterical my friend.

Thank you for always making me laugh!!

Looking forward to the finale of Purple Cowboy and the Good Daughter!

Just make a Press pass for yourself and tell them next time you are writing for a gourmet magazine ;)

sounds like a GREAT Sunday...
and who is he to tell you not to take pictures? Did he work for the store?
Anyways, I also love of my favorite drinks!
Whole Foods was in Houston when we lived there, and we really liked shopping there.
Looking forward to the end of the opera....I didn't know it would be the end though!
What will I do for my Monday entertainment on the blog world?
