weekend getaway

Brian and I decided a winter trip was in order, so we returned to The Storybook Cabin for a 3rd time. It’s a cozy little place, especially in the winter.

Jake stayed home, but we took Buster and Esme. Buster fared better this trip than the last, but still is a challenge in the vehicle–even with carsickness meds. We were totally unplugged for the weekend, which was great (no cell service or internet up there!) and did a lot of reading and knitting. We got out a couple of times with the dogs, but just around the cabin. It was too cold on Saturday for any major outings. We did manage a trip to a yarn store where I bought a couple of skeins of yarn a few years ago. I’m almost ready to start working on a sweater with it and it didn’t appear that I was going to have enough yarn, so I bought another skein.

That was really about it. Luckily I have off tomorrow to recover (though Brian plans to go in to the office). I intended on doing all of our laundry today and having a relaxing day tomorrow, but my washer is throwing error codes, so I’m going to have to call in a repairman. Good thing I’m off. I only got the washer about two months ago, so my annoyance level is in on high alert. I guess the good news is that it’s under warranty.
