I mowed, weed-whacked, weeded the garden and worked on some little things around the house. I fell into bed Saturday night, completely and thoroughly exhausted. After church Sunday, I felt the insatiable need for something baked. I tried Roasted Garlic and Cheese bread but kneaded the bread for much too long and ended up with a hard chunk of roasted garlic and cheese. It was horrible. I will attempt it again another day and knead the bread by hand.
After such a baking catastrophe I required chocolate.
With the smell of freshly baked Chocolate Crinkles in the air and a purring cat by my side, I picked up my knitting needles and finished Square number 16 of my sampler afghan. I always feel content when I knit next to a purring cat. Especially with chocolate cookies sitting in close proximity.
Ahhhh. If only you could have been a fly on the wall in our house yesterday. I sang and danced around my husband in the kitchen after completing that square. The end is in sight. I can see it! The light at the end of the tunnel. It's almost here. Do you know how exciting this is? If you have ever worked on a HUGE project and thought you would never finish, then you understand the excitement of seeing the end near. Four squares left until its finished. I can hardly contain the excitement. (Note: dear James ignored my animated hullabaloo, for the most part. Poor, dear James. What he puts up with.)
