Do you act on whims or are you always well-planned out? Saturday morning I went to Champane's to pick up some Warsteiner beer that was on sale for my brother-in-law Mike. While I was there I spotted some great deals on wine for him too. Then there was a giant chocolate turkey pinata filled with toffees that I knew my sister Denise needed for her Thanksgiving table. A little hard to see, but you get the point:
Before I knew it I had returned home, packed a small bag, and by 11:30 am I was on the road to Charlevoix (525 miles round trip!) to deliver the goods. I'm not usually so willy-nilly but I just felt like a road trip was in order. I had a super weekend with them and after a quick dinner (filet mignon -- yummo!) I left for home yesterday about 6 pm. It was nice to get away and see them since we won't be together for Thanksgiving this year.
I managed to finish knitting one felted hat and would have done more if I'd been able to grab more yarn before I left the house. Now I'm working on another hat -- the sweat shop is officially open!
