Not So Balancy

Confession time...I wonder if I had something other then dial up I would spend less time on the computer.
I'm completing about buying a lap-top so when I go into town I could have a faster connection for a computer.
But today samhain sirens in on balance So if I had a better connection for a computer would it help me balance out my time or not.
 
Once again there is a give away and it is book makers. Given away by Elegantly Enchanting
Today recipe is a The Devil’s Blood Halloween Themed Cocktail by .barina
Capture the haunting spirit of Halloween by mixing up some Devil’s Blood at home. This drink is a refreshing twist on the Cosmopoliton in a dark disguise for the holidays. 


Drink The Devil’s Blood:

Colored red sugar
4 oz cranberry juice
2 oz black vodka
Maraschino cherries

Start by rimming your glass with red sugar (moisten the rim, turn upside down and then press into a saucer containing the sugar - give it a twist for a thicker coating).  Fill completely with ice cubes and then about 3/4 of the way with cranberry juice.  Next, carefully add the black vodka over the cranberry juice by slowly pouring over a spoon. This will minimize any splashing & allow the multi colored layers to form.  Garnishing with a red cherry adds extra color and enhances the visual effect.

You can make ordinary vodka black by adding food coloring if unable to find at your local liquor store and substituting red corn syrup for the sugar allows you to create blood drips down the side.

So there more going on just click on the word balance above.

We worked on the shop/garage. Filled up all the trash cans and even got small box to go to the thrift store.
Sure not everything is clean out like it should be. But the electrical, garden, ceramics and etc are in there own separate piles.
Let say it was a good project to work on because it rain most of the day. If it wasn't raining there where 3 projects we could of work on. Which are the shed/barn, get fence post out on the North Bench, or get firewood.

But before we start to work on the garage/shed we took in the pick-up to have some tail pipe and muffler work done on it.
It cost us just under $140

Then we got home I made some scones which I got out of the October “Northern lights Ruralite”
