jonbaker and I spent yet another lovely weekend at the Inn at Shaker Mill, with its charming host and a crowd of people who are starting to become friends.

I made the cholent for the weekend and it seems I'm getting better at them. I also was assigned to set out Saturday morning breakfast AND to make a fruit salad for an afternoon snack.

I even squeezed in a knitting lesson, when a surly teenage girl, watching me knit a lace shawl, demanded that I knit her something. Instead, I offered to teach her - I had the yarn and needles all ready. And she agreed. And surly teenage girl became sweet, excited, happy young lady as she learned - very quickly - how to do a long-tail cast-on, how to knit and how to purl. Magic, huh?

I spent the weekend, otherwise, reading or knitting and chatting by the fire or in the dining room. It snowed a fair amount, and was very cold. That was fine.

And people even helped me dig out my car so I could move it for the snow plow, and it was all just lovely. But I'm happy to be home.


You are the surly teen whisperer, hehe!

Sounds like an excellent weekend, indeed. Congrats on teaching someone to knit, especially since it gave her an attitude change :-).

Are you coming to Arisia this year?

Oops - fooled by comment links. I was very happy with the Sweet 16 cholent recipe I made last week. Feel free to adapt it.
