Today was not a day I expected. I knew we would spend the day in the Capitol with the two youngest only. I did not know we’d enjoy the induction ceremony of Chaz Moore, a Raleigh Firefighter and now the first man of color in the Raleigh Chapter North Carolina Society of the Sons of the American Revolution.


I did not expect we would enjoy the North Carolina exhibit as much as we did with only a 7 year old and a 5 year old.


I did not expect we’d eat at Chubby’s Tacos, home of the $2 taco. A very good $2 taco.



I did not expect we’d see a ninja there.


OK. The ninja wasn’t so much a surprise.

But calzones were! Last night’s dinner was pushed tonight in lieu of quicker sandwiches and leftover soups. So, that pizza dough already made had to be used. And I’d never made calzones before. Yum.


And I certainly didn’t Expect to knit 17 rows including two more decreases.


It’s starting to look like a shawl. Finally.
