Colorado Visit

I spent a long weekend visiting my best pal, Val, in Fort Collins and spent time sewing, shopping, eating, and doing taxes.

The day I arrived, there were snow flurries and it was very pretty but cold.  The ground the next morning was all white.
The rest of the time I was in Colorado was cold and clear and there were a few windy days and one day the high was actually 62 although it is not like 62 at home.

We hit a few restaurants including Ruby Tuesday on the way home from the airport where I had a cheeseburger and sweet potato fries.
We also went to a new place called Tokyo Joes where I had a udon bowl and dark meat chicken, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, and broccoli with a spicy sauce.
Val had the lettuce wraps.
But mostly we ate at home.  Val made these great eggy breakfast bites with sausage, a bit of cheese and green onions.
The first morning, I tried the new Special K breakfast sandwiches.
Which were not that great.
Val also cooked a turkey tenderloin with roasted broccoli and these great potatoes puffs from the Omaha Steak catalog.


  1. Hmmm… Isn't The Loopy Ewe in Fort Collins?

  2. Yes. This is the first time that I didn't make it into the store. No yarn buying remember? I was trying to avoid temptation and instead fell down over quilts!

  3. It's easy to fall into fabric. Nice soft landing!
