That's right, my beloved Spartans tackle UAB in our first game of the season. My whole family was at the game, it was lil' b's first Spartan experience and he did so well! But to make the weekend even more perfect, we got to catch the final six seconds of this game:
And then, AND THEN!! NFL kicks off TOMORROW! ACK! I am just beside myself with excitement. After this weekend, perhaps I will post my fantasy team. I don't know who will give a hoot besides myself, but I'm pretty pleased with my picks.
Fall: The perfect season for curling up on your couch with a glass of wine and a skein of warm yarn to yell obscenities at the television.
Speaking of yarn, I got depressingly little done on October this holiday. Hopefully I can really focus this week. As it is, I was just commissioned for another blanket (this one unisex, finally!) so I'm eager to get going on that as well.
And speaking of wine, we had such fun at the wine tasting party! Our two bottles were a huge hit! Our Cab Sauv came in second place, and our Merlot came in first.
The Cab (above) was a Broquel Cabernet Sauvignon from the Trapiche winery in Argentina. The Merlot (below) was actually a Semi Sweet Merlot from the Pelee Island Winery in Canada. For our snack I made Alfajores Rogel cookies, a cracker-like cookie with dulce de leche sandwiched in between. It was an Argentinian dessert, but it did not go well with the wines, it was far too sweet.
