This and That and Life Goes On

I just realized that I spelled Thursday wrong on my last post. I am surprised no one pointed this out to me, but I am sorry, I normally try to catch typos and spelling errors before I post, not a week later. Very embarrassing.

Get ready with the cheese, I am going to whine some more, are you sick of it yet? I am so tired of not being able to prepare a decent meal, our suite has a kitchenette, but it is soooo small it is very hard to cook an entire meal (especially since all five animals like to hover at my feet when I am cooking anything, even Jell-O.) They offer a snack meal in the evening (during the week) that we normally eat, salad and a stew or something, but on the weekends, we either have to eat out or microwave something. I will be so glad to be able to cook a full meal when we get into our house. I am used to cooking big Sunday dinners and having my family and friends around me, but I cannot do that here. Last Sunday we went for a ride and found the greatest hot dog stand, it’s called Coney Island and it looks like a giant hot dog. The funniest thing about it is that it is in the middle of nowhere, up in the mountains. The hot dogs were great, and so where the onion rings and shakes. We even got a hot dog for Di, which made her ecstatic (picture the happy dog dance). Here is a picture of it.

The big orange person in the middle is me :-) I had to wait for quite awhile to get our hotdogs, but they were worth the wait.

Guess what, I finally started some Knitting (yes, it does deserve to be capitalized) thanks to Grace pointing out how close Christmas is. I made a scarf and started a hat for my son-in-law; I also started a sweater for me. It’s called “Hey Teach” from Knitty, and I love it, I am doing mine in apple green, last night I did my swatches and decided to go up a needle size, but I think it is going to be great. I might make a tank to go under it, I think that would work well. Does anybody have any opinions on it?

I think that is a fun pattern! A tank would look good in my opinion! You see that in lots of stores...tanks paired with matching sweater!

Wow, I recognize that hot dog stand! We ate alot of hot dogs from there while spending one summer in nearby Conifer. We always made a point of stopping in on subsequent visits to the area, though it's been several years since we were last there.

Great sweater.

And don't you love it when you find a weird restaurant and the food is actually good. We have a mobile "stand" by our home which makes the best gyros. It is only open on Friday evenings and Saturdays for lunch and dinner. But I already know what we will be having for dinner this evening!!
