Whims

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!

I love spontaneous road trips! They are the best. Used to do them a lot in another life!
