We’re back from a week in San Francisco, where we hung out with family, cooked and ate great food, and did a little siteseeing. Selma is studying San Francisco in school, so we took pictures of her in front of landmarks to bring back to her class. Then we had a whirlwind one-day stop in Seattle where we saw friends and visited our favorite West Seattle haunts including the amazing Bakery Nouveau where I had supèrbe chocolate brioche.

Back here in Cordova, it’s a wintery wonderland. There’s lots of snow, and it’s a bit colder than normal, but really beautiful. I’m hoping the skiis James and I got each other for Christmas arrive soon so we can make the most of it. The kids both have skiis and the lake is a nice flat place to ski right outside our door.

I’m only in town for a week and a half, then I head to TNNA (The National Needle Arts Association) trade show. I’ll be working at the Stitch Cooperative booth (#624), and networking a bit. In the meantime, I have to finish up a bunch of editing and crocheting that was set aside during the holidays, so this will be a busy week. (I kept thinking it was Monday all day today, and had to remind myself it was actually Friday!)

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Back home, for the moment
