How can it possibly be October 15th already? That's half way through the month that I feel just started yesterday. No wonder life just seems to be flying by!! I had a GREAT time at the retreat this past weekend. Lots of laughter. LOTS of chocolate.
This is a picture of the chocolate that was flowing Friday night. I was tempted to just take a straw and drink deeply.....
But instead I chose from the tray of strawberries; bananas; pretzels; marshmallows; vanilla wafers etc.. and dipped to my hearts content. In fact, I practiced the 12 Step Chocolate Therapy program I read about in England... and that is never to be more than 12 steps away from chocolate!!
Here is my friend Karen helping out by cutting the bananas for the tray. (Good strategy also for staying close to chocolate!!)
Sumo thinks that a chocolate fountain sounds pretty yummy! There's other things he would choose to dip, however: doggie treats; llama berries; a baby bunny; well, you get the idea!! Good thing chocolate is poison to a dog!! He won't be dipping anything in it any time soon!
One of the things we did was have everyone bring a baby picture and we tried to guess who was who. This is the picture that I brought of myself. Wasn't I just so cute?
I didn't get much knitting done, which is ok. I did cast on the Dream in Color but that is it. I have decided that I also need to make a felted bag. I love Maia's Big Bag pattern and have knit two of them and gave them both away. So, I think I will make myself one. Here is the yarn I have chosen for it. I will probably cast it on later today. It's going to be strange to knit with those larger needles again after sock knitting!!
Now I'm off to tackle laundry and some cleaning. Heading to the print shop later with Ryan and Mallory to finalize their wedding invitation. Just a little over 2 months to the big day. They are getting pretty excited!!
Until Next Time...
