So, the Pats lost last night, despite my predictions yesterday. I wonder if I cursed them?
Instead of getting bogged down in the potential "meaning" of that, I am focusing on the positive:
My book proposal went out to publishers today!
I suggest we all take this moment to pour ourselves a cocktail and raise a glass! Champagne as the base, of course. Why not try this recipe for a Marilyn Monroe which I came across in a fabulous little book my boss wrote a few years back?
4 oz Champagne
1 oz apple brandy (Applejack)
1 tsp grenadine
2 maraschino cherries
Combine ingredients in a glass & stir. Serve with two cherries on a stick.
Cin-cin and wish me luck!
