Mini-honeymoon


Posted at 06 Oct 2008 10:16:19 AM

We're back from our mini-honeymoon!

We left late Friday afternoon, after Dan was home from work, the laundry was done and Liz came by to pick up the dog. Had an easy drive down to the lake, and found the resort without too much trouble.

Mostly we relaxed -- did some shopping on Saturday at the outlet mall for KitchenAid toys and a shiny new handbag for me, played a round of mini golf in which we both lost horribly but him slightly less so than me, ate out a bit, and hung out in our room. I got a manicure & pedicure at the spa, which surprisingly enough has lasted at least 'til today. Another 24 hours or so and it'll win the prize for most persistent manicure I've ever had ;-)

There was a tiny black kitten hanging around the restaurant we chose for dinner on Saturday. Poor little guy seemed to be hated by the staff, and was shy as anything... there wasn't any practical way that we could have rescued him, what with being in a hotel and the long car ride, but I still wish there had been.

We stopped at St James Winery on the way back up for a quick tour and tasting. In addition to grape-derived beverages, they make some really fantastic fruit wines; we picked up an "assortment". *grin*

I got what might loosely be termed a head start on the dog bed project - I'm going to have to rip out most if not all of the seams I did last night, but now I have a better idea of how things are going to have to go together. And I think I may need to pick up a yard or so of some heavier fleece to use for the outer layer... the red that I was planning to use is maybe pillowcase weight at best, and I don't think that just the sherpa wool alone is going to be warm enough for the li'l guy.
