Mad Housewife

Two reasons to never leave the wine choice to my husband:


Bwa-ha-ha!  Fancy!  But the one person that drank wine said it was actually really good.  I don’t think she was just being nice either.  Can you read the name?  Mad Housewife Chardonnay.  Hee-hee.


Here’s the food we had. The taco dip (good recipe given in my prior entry), meat & cheese tray from Sam’s Club, crackers, snack mix, and the star of the show: The Chocolate Heath Caramel Cake.  Oh my, that was really good cake!  (Recipe also given in my prior entry)


I mean REALLY GOOD, and it was EASY to boot!  YUM.

The party went well, except we didn’t finish playing until 1:00 AM.  I’m still trying to recover, and I didn’t drink a thing except water.  After everybody left, I did the dishes and cleaned everything up, and then I couldn’t get to sleep until after 5:00 AM. 




I didn’t do a lot of crocheting this weekend, but I did make these two Granny Mandalas.  It maybe took me 2 hours to make the larger one and 1 hour to make the smaller one.  The blue one is prettier in person than it’s showing in the picture.


My sister sent me this picture yesterday.  It’s the Valentine Granny Blanket and pillow that I made for her a year or two ago.  She keeps it on her granddaughter’s bed.  I just love that bed.

I gots nuthin’ else.
