I just discovered that milk goes better with oatmeal scotchies cookie dough than red wine. Darn.
That means I have to postpone either eating cookie dough, or drinking wine, and I rather want both, right now.
I am baking cookies for our first ever Woven Art retreat this upcoming weekend. Also, planning the rest of the eats. Given the mood I am in, I fear we will be low on nutrition and high on gratifying snack-y food. Oh well, how much can one weekend hurt us all? Never mind the dress I must fit into for the following weekend's wedding festivities.
Today I also purchased some silly board games for our retreat. The porch and living room at Rosewood Pointe resort just begs for game playing and knitting. Perfect! I needed my own Bananagrams for sure - but did I really need my own Munchkins game? Or my own Apples to Apples? I love to play games, and I am pretty competitive. I know at least one other pretty competitive person is going to be there. All in good fun.
Lastly, in preparation for a weekend focused on knitting, I started a new project ;"Volt" from The Fine Line, in 100% wool by Isager. I want to get to the point where the markers are doing all the work for me, so I can converse, and drink. I am considering beginning a new sock as well, for when Volt seems too demanding. I have been working hard for months - a weekend at a lake is just what I need. Can't wait!
