Another Color!

Yay, a second color on this!  It means progress and that I can see more pattern.

Fondue Anniversary Dinner

 We had our anniversary dinner at Simply Fondue.  It was very good, as usual, and we had a good time cooking our own food.  For some reason, we forgot to take photos of dessert.


Tasting At Trinity

The tour ended with a tasting.  Here's a photo of my flight of vodkas (plus water).  Still no where as good as the Zubrovka gold, though.

Merrily Merrily Finishing We Go

The deputy chief of mission and the CLO assistant picked this ornament for me to finish for a silent auction.  So I finished it and it's now being bid on.  I think it came out pretty well.  The design is by Barbara Jackson.

More Of Trinity

Trinity River Distillery not only makes whiskey, it makes vodka.  They also have a bunch of flags across the distilling room.

Tour Of Trinity

Trinity River Distillery has opened in the old Ranch Style Beans plant.  They can't do much in the way of renovation because it's a historic site.  The place is very close to downtown Fort Worth and definitely worth the visit.  We went on our anniversary.

So Much Beige-Green

Still working on these giant gargoyles.  I am getting very tired of working on the same three colors over and over again.

Disappointing Olive Garden

We went to Olive Garden for Andreas' ravioli.  Unfortunately, we were sorely disappointed.  The Olive Garden food was just plain bland.  It had no taste.  Color us both disappointed, and we will be crossing Olive Garden off our "must visit" list.

Giant Breakast

In October, we had a giant breakast at Ol' South.  It was very yummy, and we left absolutely stuffed.  Andreas was craving biscuits and gravy.  I decided on steak and eggs instead of my regular omelette or dutch babies.

Bits And Pieces

No new major areas started, but a lot of filling in of little spots.  I like the way he looks.

Glass Class

I went to SiNaCa studios in Fort Worth and took a glass class.  I made two items - a pumpkin and a paperweight - and had so much fun doing it!  Here you can see the kilns they use to keep the glass hot, plus one of the instructors rolling glass. 

Hibachi Time

 While Andreas requires Genghis Grill, I require a hibachi restaurant for the tempura.  This was our trip to one, and the tempura and show were both great.  Of course, there was too much food, but that didn't bother us.
