White Wine and some blogging....

I've finally found some time to what do I do? I pour myself a glass of White Zin and head off to read some of my favorite blogs. There are so many wonderful projects out there that I'd love to try my hand at, especially Moostitches' hexagon afghan and then there's Monster Crochet's "Bad 2 the Bone" dog sweater that would be adorable on Anna, but I must finish my sock pal's socks. Almost there!

These pictures are of the wonderful gifts my crochetville Summer Camp Pal sent me. She sent a wonderful hook roll and matching project bag with lots of yarn!

Here's the first sock finished! I'm half way there on the second. Hope my swap partner likes them!

We finally managed to get away for a quick weekend getaway before the end of the summer. We went to Hearst Castle, drove up Highway 1 up to Santa Cruz, then to San Francisco to see a Giant's game and then it was time to head for home. One of these days we are going to have to take a longer vacation.

I spent some time on the pier that is part of the Hearst Castle estate. It was a warm, windy, and clear day and the sea weed was dancing!

Finally, a day at the "show". No, we didn't get to see Barry break the record....we missed it by a few days. Poor dh missed that and then had to deal with the fact that his beloved team lost while we were there.

Ever since I was a little girl I've loved baseball......the hotdogs, catchers, peanuts, catchers, sodas, and did I say catchers? (I had a crush on the catcher of the local triple A team when I was in high school) But there's something about the garlic fries at the stadium. They smell good for the first hour and then all you want to do is get away from them.....far, far away.
