A Few Quick Hits

I have been craving breakfast tacos.  I didn't think there were any such things in this town, but the People of Leesburg informed me that Anita's New Mexico Style Restaurant serves breakfast, so I went with my friend Chris this morning and got a burrito with eggs and chorizo and a mild green chili sauce which was good.  So, it wasn't breakfast tacos, but it worked.  And now I know where to go when I need a Mexican-ish breakfast.  Yay!

The girls were recognized by the Mayor and Town Council last night for helping decorate the town at Christmas.  It was cool.  The girls were really proud, and our awesome Mayor took a lot of time out to spend with them.  

Daphne has decided to make origami Yoda Valentines this year.  It's a lot of work, and probably some of the kids won't know who Yoda is.  They are really cute, though.  Handmade Valentines are good.

Kev and I got to go out last weekend for dinner at the Wine Kitchen and the Woodshedders show at the Tally Ho.  So much fun.  This band is great.  

I have been working at the shop a lot lately.  I like it.  But it's hard to work and do all the other things, too, so I feel pretty lucky that I don't have to be a full time working mom every day.  

We are smack in the middle of cookie season.  We built a fort with all the cookies.

I started knitting some socks.

I got the piles picked up and generally put away, but I had to take everything out of the cabinets and start over and it took all day and made me sneeze a lot.  I feel so much better now, though.  

Daphne finished her sewing class.

This is my new favorite snack.

I am going to teach a class about how to fix knitting mistakes.  I never would have believed it if you told me that six months ago.

I finished my honey cowl which I love and wish I could wear every single day.

Slowly getting my groove back, I think.

Thanks for the blog post. :)

Hokey smokes! That's a lot of cookies.

I know what you mean -- although probably not the extent -- about Mexican food. No Mexican fast food here in Aussie-land: not the same number of Mexican immigrants as in the west coast of the U.S. -- oddly enough.
