IN THE WEE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING

Yes it is the wee wee hours of the morning . . . 3:30 am to be exact and here I sit with laptop in hand, and a glass of red wine . . . I bet you are asking yourself "why?" . . . answer is very simple . . . I'm waiting for the cream cheese brownies I'm making to finish baking!!!!! Next question is "why bake brownies at 3 in the morning . . . was her week that stressful, is she having a hormona moment?" . . . well it's really very simple . . . I have a picinic to atttend tomorrow afternoon (or is that later today . . . hummmmm more wine) for my husbands work (he's a surveryor for a very small company) and I am bringing corn-chili relish from Trader Joe's (this is not only great as a chip dip - which is how they sell it . . . but it is great as a side dish with steak and chicken) and homemade cream cheese brownies . . . and the 3 in the morning part is easy to explain also . . . I had a tiring week at work and I fell asleep around 7 pm tonight and woke up at a quarter to three realising that I had to make brownies for Saturday (I mean today) . . . see that was pretty simple to explain . . . long but simple . . .

Before coming home this afternoon I stopped off at my semi-LYS to pick up some BERROCO Softwist yarn in a wonderful golden beige color . . . I have decided that instead of making an adult size sweater like my granddaughter's with long sleeves that I would make for myself a short sleeve pullover sweater . . . I am thinking of using the Ann Norling "The Perfect Tee" pattern which has fitted shoulders with set in sleeves and a little shaping at the waist . . . what I really liked about this pattern is that it has 6 different edgings and you can make it to the length that looks good on you . . . it doesn't stop at the top of the hip bone!!!!! So after I finish the baby booties for granddaughter, a red felted purse and a scarf (I think I have a couple of more projects also in my work bag and no Lynn one of them is NOT your roadkill) I will start on this sweater . . . hopefully it will be done in time for when I attend a confernce in November . . .

Okay got to go . . . timer went off . . . brownies are done and I need to sample them . . . that's why I am drinking red wine . . . red wine and chocolate are a match made in heaven!!!!
