Running Late

Yesterday I went out to help my dear friend Karen celebrate her 29th Birthday - once again.  As it seems to happen every time I plan to leave by a certain time something goes all started after I filled up with gas.  I decided I should get my vehicle washed.  So I bought a car wash, a drink, a couple of BINGO scratch n' win tickets (I won $3) and got in line for the car wash, well by the time I realized how long it would be in this line within 3 minutes of pulling in, I decided I will come back another day after all I have 30 days to use the car wash coupon.  This is when I realized I was stuck here as I had 2 or 3 vehicles behind me and they have it set up once you are in line you are in line there is no place to pull out.  So there I sat for close to 1 hr waiting for my turn in the wash bay.  I have groceries in the back as well so I ran the air conditioning to keep the vehicle cool as the sun coming through the windows was quite warm.

Once at home as I was going to jump in the shower my Aunt from Vernon I tell her I will call her back when I am done in the the same time I notice an email from a person that was inquiring about my family tree...turns out this person is my 2nd cousin and lives 1.5 hrs from me.  So I decide to quickly phone my Aunt in Kamloops to tell her I had heard back from this person. I had one of the quickest phone conversations with my Aunt as we usually have a wonderfully long visit on the while in the shower I hear the phone ringing and it my other Aunt from Vernon....I call her back and we have a wonderful visit on the phone.  So buy now I am really running I get ready as quickly as I Karen let her know I am on my I am thinking I am going to be holding things up as I thought we were to eat around 6pm......good thing others ended up being late and Karen pushed supper back to around 8pm.  My whole intention was to get to her house a couple hours ahead of everyone else so we could have some time to visit, which in the end we had the time for a nice visit.

Of course I was running late....missed the florists (should have gone when I was grocery shopping) forgot to grab my camera bag which was on the counter waiting for me to grab it (didn`t realize it until I was pulling into Birch Hills now I am 40 minutes from home so I am not running back for it.

Oh by the way Karen LOVED her birthday card.  I was pretty sure she would.....she loved it so much she showed to every guest that arrived and told them Corinne made this.....I was so proud of my work but even more proud and happy that I had touched Karen`s heart in such a special way.  Hand made gifts are such wonderful gifts that come from the heart and give a bit of yourself with each one.

When ever Karen and I get together we like to try a new drink....a while back it was the Cotton Candy Cosmo and last night it was the Porn Star.  Here are the recipes in case you would like to try them....I highly recommend either one.

Cotton Candy Cosmo

1/2 oz Sour Puss Rasberry Liqueur
1 1/2 oz Green Apple Vodka
1 oz Cranberry Juice
Pink Cotton Candy

Put the cotton candy in the martini glass. Put the rest of the ingredients in a shaker and shake well.  Pour cocktail over the cotton candy, it dissolves instantly so present the glass before pouring.  Garnish with a cherry.

PornStar Cocktail

1/2 oz Sour Puss Rasberry Liqueur
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
4 - 6 oz 7-up or Sprite
Pour Sourpuss and Curacao into a shaker glass with ice. Add 7-up or Sprite, stir, strain, and serve in a highball glass.  (We used Martini glasses and crushed ice in the glass)

The next drink we want to try is the Dirty Hooker Cocktail.... We are always looking for a new drink to try if you know of any let me know in the comments section.

Dirty Hooker Cocktail

1/2 oz Sour Puss Raspberry Liqueur
1/2 oz Bols Creme de Bananes
1 oz Pineapple Juice

Pour in equal parts into a shot glass, stir and serve.

Enjoy the drinks if you ever decide to try them....highly recommend each one of them.
