Phew scorchio!! It’s 93F in New York today darlings, too hot for me to be outside for long, I just popped out for a minute to the dry cleaners at the end of the street and it was like being inside a pizza oven. No thank you.

Instead of going out I’m perfectly content to stay home tonight. I have a cheeky Chilean Sauvignon Blanc chilling in the freezer* and the second season of Murder in Suburbia on DVD.

Yup, that’s how I roll on a Saturday night in the city that never sleeps; cheap* white wine and back to back episodes of cheesy British detective series.

Am I getting old do you think? ;-)

*A 2007 Santa Rita for the bargain price of $6:49 including tax. It's very happy on the wallet which is good because I'm economising at the moment. It doesn’t taste like vinegar either, in fact it’s an under $15 pick by the Wine Spectator. Try it kids, it's delicious!!

Nothing wrong with chilling at home!!

thanks for the wine tip. Always good to know. Actually I heard a podcast on NPR recently about affordable wine picks, here.

I'm usually clueless in liquor stores.

Wow, been a scorchin 85F here a few times lately. Plenty hot enough for me. The wine sounds super though:)

Hi Kitty, glad to be of service :-)

Hi Mike, yeah the weather here has been way too hot recently. I'm looking for it to get a good 15F cooler :-)

Not getting old, just enjoying your life more and more no matter what you do, even if that means spending time alone in the apt. ;-D

Hi Tom, I'd enjoy some English weather right now. We're set for thunderstorms over the next few days.

Hi Amel, yes I am enjoying relaxing in my apartment a lot more than I used to :-)
