Welcome the Tobacco Valley Nordic Ski Club
What a glorious winter to get out and glide around our woods! The new non-profit Tobacco Valley Nordic Ski Club encourages you to strap on your skis and enjoy the frosty forests.
I just returned from a very much appreciated trip to Italy. One of my rituals there was stopping in a cafe in the morning to enjoy a luscious cup of espresso with a pastry. Loathed to give this up entirely, I bought a small espresso pot so I could make my own once I was home. But really there are great places in Eureka where good coffee can be enjoyed - alone, with friends, over breakfast or with a yummy treat.
Holiday Tween Times
We're now in that in-between time during the holidays. The kids are still off from school, but the pressure to get presents and decorate the tree is behind us. We can enjoy the new book we got or watch the movie we have been waiting to see. We can even go sledding, snowmobiling or skiing.
Holiday Shopping in the Tobacco Valley
The Saturday after Thanksgiving was a superb Shop Small day in the Tobacco Valley. Stores like Sunflower Moose and Montana Market had wonderful sales, and home-based businesses such as Simply Josephine and Sean Tribble Pottery set up tables in town to display their wares. Cafe Jax and Four Corners Restaurant had yummy specials to fortify shoppers who needed a break mid day.
