My Afghan is Here!

December 21st, 2015 at 04:21 pm

After several failed attempts to pick up my afghan from the FedEx drop off, I finally have it home. It is quite lovely I think and warm too. Smile

My aunt made this for me with yarn I picked out when I was in CA over Thanksgiving. She's taught herself how to knit entirely through youtube videos.

Here's a pic (with Kari photobombing of course.) Smile

So I finally got a sort of non-auto response reply from restaurant.com regarding my $200 credit. This after three exactly the same auto responses.

It basically said to reply to this email if your issue hasn't been resolved and we'll escalate it. So ... I replied and now I wait.

NE and I were taking stock of what we'll need to make 5 rum cakes (he's decided he wants to take one to work.) What it boiled down to was we'd need another bottle of rum. Ugh. That stuff is expensive! The pecans also aren't going to be cheap ...

At least I already have pretty much everything we need for the tater tot casserole on hand (except the particular brand of veggeburger he wants for it.)

Even splitting the cost .. my grocery budget is going to go over.

Oh well, January I will do better!

    The colors remind me of vanGogh's Starry Night.

    I love the colors! (By the way, I think all rum tastes the same, so i say, the cheaper, the better. Barcardi is too expensive.)

    Thanks everyone.. Smile
    Mrs. F/Ima - have no idea what kind of rum we have. The cake we put rum in the batter last year tasted disgusting to me ... the other one where we just used the rum for glaze, was decent. Not something I'd repeat for myself ... but NE loves it. So it goes.
