Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts


Walkin’ After Midnight …

is what Toby & I have been doing lately, thanks to my getting involved in watching some of the Olympics. The full moon has been so bright I haven’t even needed a flashlight.

Some good and some bad around here: The good news is that the drywall seams are being sanded, and primer should be going on soon; the bad news is that the garage door opener on my side croaked, and Himself is having to take part of it down so he can weld it back together, but at least the weather’s currently cooperating.

Warning to anyone eating dessert at a Longhorn Steakhouse: the Chocolate Stampede is huge. It’s 2 big slices of cake with chocolate mousse filling and other goodies, plus 2 large scoops of ice cream. If we’d had any idea how big it was, I hope we would have split an order (sorry for the not-so-good cell phone photo – lighting levels are pretty low). As it was, we doggie-bagged at least half of each piece of cake.

Congratulations to Team Canada—naturally I’d have preferred to see Team USA win the hockey game, but both teams played a real barn burner of a game!
