For Mother's Day (and again for my birthday) I received some chocolate from Pete. He bought them at Cacao in Portland, a wonderful little shop selling fancy chocolate bars and delicious drinking chocolate. I loved everything shown here. I am a huge fan of dark chocolate but find most of it too chalky. I like the taste, but not the texture. These are all so smooth and wonderful to eat—the Patric being my favorite. It is so sophisticated and has so many flavors in one bite. I just loved it. He talked with the sales folks quite a bit and they told him these were all delicious and they were right.
- I am super happy to see Bil Nye has a channel on youtube with a ton of full episodes of his shows, including the series The Eyes of Nye, which is nice for older kids.
- I have been telling friends that want to learn to knit about the amazing (and free!) projects designed just for beginners over at Tin Can Knits. It's called The Simple Collection. It's new to me and seems so wonderful to learn from these designs that are specifically meant to teach basic knitting skills simply and clearly. The designs are lovely, as well.
