My dad would always get her some for special occasions. He has been getting them for me and my sister for Valentine's Day, too.
They are quite good, the creme filled ones. I am a fan of the dark chocolate orange cremes; see the picture above. (the milk chocolate orange cremes are equally as good) My mom said she was at her heaviest when she worked there. Employees were allowed to eat whatever they wanted, as long as it wasn't in front of the customers! My gosh, I would always be in the back finding something to eat. I mean do.
Sadly, our box of 2 lb creme filled chocolates is nearly empty....(although, it is 13 days past Valentines Day, so it is amazing there are any left at all!)

So, last night we were at a fast food place eating dinner. A family is sitting in the booth behind us. Cassie commented on how pretty she was (Cassie liked her long hair and barrette) Nate looked over and asked "Who's that" (about the dad at the table) "A man" we say. He looks at the lady. "Who's that?" He asks. "A lady", we say. Nate: " I li-ike ladies!"
It was so funny. That little singsong voice, I li-ike ladies. Lino and I just laughed and shook our heads. I think the lady heard Nate, she smiled and said Hi to him as they left.
I could have done the handle better. I used scrap fabric for this purple bag. If I do put any on etsy, they will be 'perfect'.
So, more things to work on. Maybe I can get a better system. Cut a bunch of stuff first, and then have a big sewing day. Then work on pictures to list them.

My cat passed away today. She was about 14. I know she lived a long time for a cat, but I am really upset. She was my best pal when I was going through some really tough times. She was such a good cat.
She liked pasta. She enjoyed the occasional rice cake. She tolerated the arrival of TC and Josie, nearly 9 years ago. We think she did enjoy being a mama cat. She was so funny when she had cat nip, she would get all crazy and run around, then sit up against a wall, just watching.
She was my friend and I loved her. I am really sad.

I was expecting a challenging game, but Lino and I both thought that the Pats would prevail, and have that perfect season. Wow. Were we ever wrong! The Giants played a really good game. The Patriots looked like a completely different team out there!
What happened?!? Brady got sacked and pressured more times in that 1 game than the whole rest of the season. Seriously, he can stand in the pocket for what seems like days, taking as much time as he needs to find his receiver. It is truly an amazing thing to watch. The offense normally does a fantastic job allowing him that time. And Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Kyle Brady, they have all been Tom's go to guys. Tom and Randy both set records this season for throws and receptions! And the defense is usually great at shutting down the other team.
We were stunned by the game. Didn't understand some of the plays the Pats made, and why they didn't do some others.
However, they are a fantastic team, they have a great coach and I am super excited for next season. I love football. (Not so much baseball, though it was exciting to watch the Red Sox win that first pennant after 86 years. I could root for either the Sox or the Yankees (my dads team).) But, I love football. I will even watch Arena football during the NFL off season.
