If you know it'll annoy Faythe, take pictures

I'm quite pleased with myself.

First, I found my food scale and with Faythe's advice, am using it to measure yarn to make sure I have enough to finish Peanuts sweater. It looks like I'll definitely have enough. I may have to use the left overs from three different balls, but that's fine.

Second, I borrowed a cork screw from Big Mac! I had a rough couple of days recently which ended with my frantically rummaging through kitchen drawers looking for a cork screw while staring angrily at unopened wine bottles. There may have also been a couple tries to pull out the cork using a knife and some other random kitchen gadgets. Happily, Mac is letting me borrow his...I'm so happy!

I knew this photo of wine in a glass would bother Faythe. HEHEHE. Anyway, it tastes pretty good. I was a bit surprised myself as I've never really been one to voluntarily drink red wine. This 2004 Borsao Campo de Borja was recommended to me by the folks at Cost Plus World Market as a good red wine for beginners.

OK, back to the sweater. And the wine. I think I'm going to sleep well tonight!

You know, I was just looking at some wine glasses - stemless. They're really nice! Probably less tippy... I might have to get some eventually.

Thats the kind of wine glass I like. Especially since Zoe is always trying to knock over my glasses.

I love the stemless wine glasses, too, but since Ryan has insisted that he gets to pick out the wine glasses we will be sending you, I don't think you'll be getting them. I will point out the fact that you have cats who like to tip over glasses, though. Maybe that will change his mind.
