Friday, A Week in Review!

I shared earlier that Fridays were going to be a week in review...all those things that didn't make it into the blog or needed a second "talk about."  Needless to say it has been a full week in the city.  I have shared with you before that HH is a photographer by talent.  Years ago he even had his photography exhibited at the Carmel Art Museum and we were rarely without a darkroom in our home...but, as with many things in life his love of photography took a back seat and the last 2 places we have lived did not have a dark room.  Enter Joel the DH of a Fabric Stalker and the Buggy Barn Camping trip of 2013.  Much to my delight HH was inspired to pick up the camera again!  You can see some of his photos on

Meet Ed our latest favorite person! He is the owner/chef of Cheryl's on 12th.  HH and I are always on the hunt for great breakfast places wherever we travel...because if a restaurant can pull off a great breakfast you are pretty much guaranteed great lunches and dinner.

They have an in house bakery!  A+

You ask how can I know every baked good is yummy...well, because I had a classic Bran Muffin.  Most of the time a bran muffin is purchased for it's medicinal properties not necessarily because it is thought of as a wonderful pastry choice....if you know what I mean.  But, these bran muffins were so good that 2 yr old Wyatt couldn't get enough of them (sorry parents)  So, I went back the next day and bought 2 more!  They shouldn't  be called Classic because there is nothing dry about them!

The Latte was delish...and every person is served a complementary beignet!  Light, fluffy and melt in your mouth!

HH ordered a 2 egg breakfast...not a very exciting choice. But, he said it was even the traditional breakfast is for me I chose their signature breakfast of Portuguese Fried Rice...OMG...definitely will be back for more!  Be sure to check out the Web Site for their Valentine's Day event!

Also on the agenda was a movie at the Living Room Theater.  You can have dinner and drink with your movie and the seat was wonderful.  We saw "Her" and I would recommend it if you like quirky, thought provoking movies that share an off beat kind of humor.  We both thought it was money well spent.

I started this cross stitch project and have also been working away on stitching wool on one border of the Primitive Gathering 2011 BOW.

This weeks book was a Dean Koontz publication...before you say, no way...I don't do scary...this book is a bit different than some of his books of the past...more along the line of his off beat books with the Golden Retrievers.  For me a good read that kept me reading.

The slide show I have for you today is of the Chinese Gardens in Portland.  It seems as a quilter that you just can't go anywhere without being inspired by quilt patterns!  Enjoy...I have shared a bunch today and hope it hasn't over loaded you, lol.  Have a wonderful weekend and see ya on Monday!
