i haven't been so ready for a drink in quite a while. i have basically spent everyday this week helping to clean out an 100+ year old house that has never been moved out of. meadowvale has basically just been re-inhabited. when the person living there dies, someone else moves in. this results in lots of crap everywhere. the house is packed with old furniture, most of it really cool with lots of character, but every drawer and closet is filled with stuff. let's just say it's quite the task at hand to clean the house completely out. the other kicker is it's not just the big house (with 2 attics and a basement no less) but a garage with an attic, a barn used mainly to store furniture, and a tack room filled with saddles, bridles, blankets, and bits.
needless to say, every night this week i have slept very well. around 4pm today my mom, 2 aunts, 2 uncles and i called it a day. we made the mistake of sitting down and we ran out of steam quickly. the first thing i wanted? a drink.
this weeks weekly nightcap is an old favorite. i decided on a cherry 7up because today was a glorious 70 degrees and i wanted a drink that makes me think of summer. my friend meliss actually introduced me to this drink. it's simply yet tasty. just three olives cherry vodka and 7up. it's so refreshing.
thanks M - cheers!
