Sunday Breakfast

We are having a working Sunday over here today, and the lovely Maddie is here playing with Emmett. But we took the time for a quick breakfast of breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, leftover chipotle chicken, salsa verde and feta crumbles.  Quick, healthy and delicious.

Easter Fun

Ok, so Martha Stewart, we are not.  But we had fun trying!  Sparkling Sangria Blanca recipe here.

Under the Pier

So sorry for the extended absence, and the ignoring of the poor blog! We are on vacation in California visiting family, which has been very busy and very full of family activities.  And before we left was the usual scramble to complete (Ha! As if!) both work and life-administration projects before our trip.  I haven't even had a chance to post our Easter pictures, but they will come next, I think.  But today we got the chance to see some seals and sea lions up close and personal under the Old San Luis Obispo Port Pier, in Avila Beach.  They were just snoozing away in a big pig pile, except for this one guy who missed his chance to jump on the platform at high tide, and was swimming around in the water about 6 feet below wondering how they all got up there.

The New Windham Antique Center

There's a gorgeous new antique shop in Bellows Falls, VT full of fascinating things, with a special focus on estate jewelry.  I had the opportunity to poke around there yesterday for hours shooting some pictures for them to use in their brochures, website, and the like.  It was especially fun for me to handle the stunning antique rings, which I think in another life would have been a great route to go for an engagement ring and wedding bands.  Maybe for the next marriage ;) . . . (just kidding Hutten!!)

They've just opened, and are working on putting together their website, but you can get the basic coordinates here, or you can keep up to date with their goings on on facebook here.
