I Love Vacation!

I had my mini vacation this past weekend (just a 3 day weekend) and we went to Copano was was my first knitting view

Then we went out to eat......I love Shrimp Brochette!

I had worked on my Clapotis a little on the drive down there

And I was going to work on it some more when.....BAMB!!!!  Robert caught a fish....a 19" black drum.  Robert is not my son or Jaime's, but he is kind of adopted by both of us...both of our kids know him and I just love him to death....he is a great kid (who turned 21 this past Thursday)!!  Happy Birthday Robert!

So....I did some more knitting.....and thankfully on Wednesday night I pre-made 2 pans of while they boys were inhaling this

I was enjoying Copano Bay

For those that do not know....Copano Bay is by is a red pin dot to show where I was:

Before I knew it, it was time to say goodbye to Rockport and head back to reality

Thankfully, reality had a nice surprise waiting for me at home.....some yarn!

Paige wants 2 cardigans for winter....this will be the first.  She decided on "Breezy Cardigan"....and I will use this Quince & Co. Tern Yarn in the Barnacle colorway (because Paige wanted one just like the picture).

So I have it ready to cast on...but have not cast on yet:

While in Copano Bay/Rockport....I did get some major progress done on Jaime's Socks...One heel turned, one almost turned and just 2 legs/cuffs to do and I am finished!

My Clapotis is also growing...I am more than 1/2 way now:

Well, that is all that I have for knitting....I hope to be almost done with my clapotis the next time I talk to you guys....keep your fingers crossed for me.

I have a friend, Jill, who has a blog and is always putting some great recipes on it.....I tried one last week that was awesome.  Her blog is located here and the recipe I tried is called Enchillada Cube Steak...Jaime and I really liked it but I think next time I will try with a different steak cut...I like cube steak, but during the week, I do not have a lot of time to let it cook longer to get more tender...but it was yummy!

I leave you with a picture of Paige and Antonio and then with just Antonio....he came over to visit me (I miss him terribly) and he loves to wear grandpa's hat (and looks darn cute in it too!)

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!  I hope you all have a great week!


  1. Ohhhh - what a wonderful vacation. Your pics and projects are great, and that lasagna looks amazing! I need to get a good recipe for lasagna - mine is boring LOL

    1. Thanks Wendi! My lasagna recipe is easy peasy.....cook ground meat (I use venison), add ragu (flavored with meat) spaghetti sauce....then layer a pan with: Sauce, *noodles (the no boil kind, just ready to bake), sauce, cheese (I get the mexican blend in a bag ricotta)* repeat between * and * till your baking pan is full....bake in oven at 350 degrees 30-45 min....done!
