Boy did I sleep in this morning!! Usually I'm up by 5:30 on work mornings and typically by 6:30 or so on weekends. Today? I rolled out of bed at 8:15. What a luxury.
I did manage to knit after dinner last night and finished the first sock. Lest I enter into Second Sock Syndrome, I promptly started the second:
A little busy on that Fall tablecloth....I have not measured exactly yet, but I think I managed to start the second sock in approximately the same place in the yarn colors as the first one, so they should be close to matching. I think these will be for Fletch - he has been admiring the texture (Hermoine's pattern) and likes the colors. Hoping to knit a bit more today, but also want to work on the fingerless mitts.
I did make the cranberry fig sauce this morning.
I'm anxious to taste it when it has cooled more. While warm it was good...but not my favorite. However, we all like trying new things, so that's good. There are shallots and fresh rosemary in this as well as balsamic vinegar (and the only balsamic vinegar I have on hand is honey-ginger...so a few more flavors thrown in).
A few weeks ago Colin had brought over some home-made breakfast bars that were so good. He gave me the recipe and I plan to make some of them this afternoon...will let you know how they turn out. I will also mix up the dough for my pie crust. I am only making a pumpkin pie this year (usually I make apple and pecan as well). But I think Mailing's sister may bring a pie and there will only be five of us...so no need for a ton of desserts.
I also need to run out to do a couple of errands this afternoon. Hopefully places won't be too crowded (not holding my breath on the liquor store though). Fletch heard that someone is now making a cranberry liquor - hoping to find that we well as some wine to take to Colin & Mailing's.
On the reading front, I am almost finished To The Bright Edge of The World. So good! I don't want it to end...but my overdrive loan ran out a couple of days ago, so time to finish it and let it wing back over the airwaves to someone else.
Linking up with Kat and friends this day before Thanksgiving.
