Well, we were away for a week for a mid-winter vacation with my parents in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Such a lovely time together.
As always, it was all about the food for us. Aside from fresh coconut and a few tacos on the street, we cooked nearly all of our meals in, made with the freshest of ingredients: fruits, veggies, hot off the press corn tortillas, seafood (shrimp, mahi-mahi, snapper, octopus), etc. Such a treat!
Also, it was just so nice not driving for a full week, travelling only on foot, by bus, or by boat. There's certainly something to be said for living in the city.
There was all the build-up, planning, packing, and preparations prior to leaving, and then the exhaustion and all the catch-up to do upon our return. Thus, my absence here.
Of course, there was knitting:
Yarn: Hundertwasser Opal sock yarn. Details on Ravelry here.
Worn for the very first time, by C, during our layover in the Seattle airport on the return trip between Mexico and Montana, by which time we were all in a near delirium, with still another hour to wait, another hour and half flight, and an hour and a half drive home, putting us home in the very wee hours.
In the terminal.
