Ruby Tuesday ~ Pimento

Click on the Ruby Slippers to see more Ruby Tuesday posts!

You will have to look closely to find the ruby in my photo this week. I have been working on a craft project that has confirmed to me that I am not a crafter. I just do not have the patience for long drawn out projects. So no, you will not find me knitting, or sewing, or cross-stitching, or being a master gardener. Sheesh, if I can’t finish it in an hour or a day forget about it! So why the martini photo today. I finally finished a project I had to do. My high school scrapbook was falling apart with tape deteriorating , etc. etc. I decided I had to re-do it and OYE what a mess crafting makes. I was so tired of the mess on my dining room table I decided that today was the day. It had to get done or I’d burn it all. Thank goodness I was able to finally finish after 3 trips to Michael’s. So I’m celebrating and our local fabulous California Grill offers 99 cent Martinis during the first quarter of televised NFL games. Monday and some Thursdays televise games while they are open. I’m buying for everyone because my project is finally done D-O-N-E done!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. O, darlin’…, too !! If I can’t finish it in a reasonable amount of time…I’m through with it…
    I LOVE your Ruby Martini !!! shhhh…don’t tell a soul but in my loooong life, I have never had the pleasure to even taste a martini. I do so wonder if I would like it…I like sweet drinks and I’m thinking someone famous once said they were not sweet ??

  2. You funny lady!! Don’t you see that your blogging is a craft. You just do it on the computer not with things from Michaels. You Do have skill at this. It may not be knitting…but,

  3. Cheers! A great photo Ellen!
    I have scrapbooking and card marking materials all around my computer table. A tub of paper objects from my daughter’s baby shower (um, two years ago) is under the table waiting and waiting…… πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Ellen!! Sorry I’ve not been around much too.
    I’ll have a couple if I was there πŸ™‚

    Yes, I spot the olive with the touch of ruby. Nice way of celebrating ur accomplishment!

  5. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Sounds like you adjusted the OLD STYLE into the new SCRAPPY style! I won’t even go there… not because I wouldn’t enjoy it… but because I would spend waaaaaaay too much money and drive myself crazy!

    That martini was a tasty reward to yourself! And the olive a LOVELY ruby! But… make mine apple! πŸ™‚

  6. One of the great things about photography – you don’t have to spend hours and hours to take a photo! (although one could, I suppose).

    The martini looks good. The pimento even better. Love pimento.

  7. Wow.
    In Norway, land of the most expensive alcohol of the world, you’ll have to pay 10 to 15 dollars for one Martini, and they might even cheat you for the cocktail berry.

    For 99 pence I’d become an alcoholic by the end of the month.
    Love your pictures.
    They are art & craft.

  8. I don’t suppose you’d be willing to make my Martini a Margarita? I can’t for the life of me understand why anybody would want to ruin a perfectly good olive by soaking it in vermouth. Might as well soak it in perfume!

    Hmm, I better adjust me collar. My redneck is showing again ….

  9. Hi Ellen, it has been a long, long time.* Yes, we should have a Martini. I love your picture with the little red pimento showing through.
    Happy RT! Thank you for peeking in on my car and the water theft in action.
    *I don’t do SkyWatch or Wordless Wednesday anymore as I couldn’t keep up with that. But I will watch more for you being around. Thank you again,

  10. I’m not very good at crafts. I always lose interest.

    Congrats on finishing the scrapbook work…I love this photo!

    I don’t drink Martinis. Don’t think I’ve ever tasted one.

    I like wine though πŸ˜‰

    Happy belated Ruby Tuesday
