Hurrah for long weekends! I'm so glad that I don't have to go to work tomorrow! I'm going to try and spend the day and be super productive. But, we had a great day yesterday. We went here.....
I don't remember what it is called, but it is a canyon that was created by farmers abandoning their land. They made it into a state park. We went with a group of friends and hiked down in the bottom of the canyon. It was a nice little day trip.
After we hiked, we took a bit of a break and found the playground. The guys found a way to turn everything into a competition. Is that an inherant nature of men? Hanging upside down became a competition. I don't get it.
This is Philip and Ranjit about to race down the slide. Yes, it took them approximately 1 second to reach the bottom, but it was still a competition. So, while the boys competed, I did this...
Mom's Mother's Day sock - yes, I know I'm really late! I've already got one done, and this is the 2nd. I'm making up the pattern myself, and it is turning out pretty good!
I finished up the wine cozy, I just have to sew the embellishments on. That is a job for tomorrow. It turned out big, but pretty darn cute. I think it will be great for a bottle of champagne or I might felt it one more time and see if it shrinks more. I'm also working hard on Peppermint Twist - I'm almost done with the 2nd front.
Do you know what happened a year and a half ago?
I know in the grand scheme of things, it isn't that long, but when you are newlyweds I figure we can celebrate the little ones. So, I'm using it as an excuse to have something a little fancier than what we would normally eat - scallops in a white wine cream sauce. Yum! I decided that afterwards, I should have gotten steaks so Philip would have to cook. I'll just have to do that next time.
