Crazy Week

This week has been a bit more of a gong show than usual around here. Nothing to exciting just a big juggle of soccer for the kids, softball for me and hockey for Paul. PJ is so pooped she put herself to bed about an hour ago.

In my spare time I have been chugging along on the Mystery Socks. I will post a picture of them soon.

Paul and I are diligently searching for the Martini of the Summer for 2009. Last year and the year before we were really into the Carmel Apple Martini. Still a favorite but I am looking for a little change. So this evening I tried a Razzle Dazzle. I really like it but Paul dose not (even better)

give this one a try:

2 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
1/2 oz chambord (I put in a full oz)
2 oz of cranberry juice.

Yum. I had a couple of sips and I can hardly type. I think I will have a splash more and knit a little. That's a recipe for successful knitting.

I'm sticking to my simple cocktails: bourbon and water, vodka gimlet, martini, and the occasional margarita. Then there's wine and beer. What else do I need?

Both drinks sound way yummy - I'm currently trying to develop a taste for vodka, it's not easy, but I do love a white Russian =) Thanks to Kaluha anyway. (don't know if that's spelled right)

Can't wait to see the socks.

I'm not a big drinker but a yummy drink once in a while is nice.

Nothing like children to drive one to drink. Hahahahahaha!
