This weekend & today the weather was marvelous. Temps in the mid 70's! And Spray is out of the water. Saturday we had a lovely drive looking for OUR apple stand. We didn't find it. We didn't drive far enough. When we got home we had the great idea to Google for apple stands in our area as we both remembered OUR stand had a website. Well, we found it. Maybe next weekend.
Sunday, we did boat-on-the-trailer-for-the-winter housekeeping. We took the mainsail off the boom, took it home & folded it. Sweetie pumped up the very low trailer tire. I folded &amp;amp; put away the working jib & our genoa & otherwise tidied up the main saloon. We took the tiller handle off as I'm going to sand it down & re-do it.
Friday Sweetie had no calls so he was home all day. Today, he was home by 10am. I dumped the rest of the Chocolate Gingerbread cake today. It's good, but not what we were hungry for. We like our comfort food. So I baked a boxed marble cake. I pumped up the volume on the chocolate part. I ground a whole clove & a couple allspice berries in my coffee/spice grinder & mixed those into the chocolate. I iced it with, what else, home-style chocolate icing. This is giving us the comfort.
I began knitting again today. My thumb area still has issues but if I go slowly & not try to set a knitting speed record, I'm OK. I knit about a ½ a row on CIL's sock, then ripped it out. I cast on again with the variegated denim then switched to the dark blue. The Whine was just not doing it. I may throw a couple of rounds in randomly, later. We'll see. If I keep up I may even have some pics to post by weeks end.
If I don't post tomorrow
