All I talk about these days is how fast time flies or how strange our weather is. I mean, we got some rain, about a day and a half of it a week ago but it was warm and then cool and then warm again. The plants and trees around me don’t know what to think. It’s really strange.
The plus side, is that with all this mild weather it does put me in a warm weather mood. You know, easy, carefree and yes, even relaxed. That’s nice because usually I am a wound-up ball of nerves. Yesterday, we piled into the car and hit a restaurant we’ve never been to.
The Tallyrand is an old school coffee shop. Great service from servers who have been there for 30 years, comfort food and they make a mean omelette. I first heard about this restaurant when Huell Howser did a special on it. It was great. All the neighborhood regulars were at the bar having their Bloody Mary’s. We will definitely go back.
After that, we hit the zoo. It’s been awhile since we’ve been there. Maybe three years? It was packed!! The weather was so nice which I’m sure had something to do with all of the people there, but we headed to the top of the hill and there was no one there. The parents with strollers opted to hang out at the bottom of the hill, which worked for us.
We are sipping coffee, and eating toast and then we are off to church. The Teen is volunteering at a retirement home with some of this choir classmates so we’ll catch-up with him later.
I have middle-school ministry tonight so I will catch the Oscars at some point but I am not real jazzed about any of the nominees. I DO hope the show ends before The Walking Dead comes on.
The Girl has to work 6th grade orientation at the junior high on Monday night, I have a girl’s night out dinner with some friends, Tuesday I have to run the kids to their dental appointment and on Thursday I have book club. In between there are rehearsals, track practices and choir activities. I also have leader training and some other stuff I’ve forgotten about. I really need to spend time with my planner later today.
I am finishing up The Nakeds by Lisa Glatt and I am about to start my book club book, Toni Morrison’s God Help the Child.
I have one more episode of Mad Men!! Gosh, I love that show. Later, The Walking Dead.
I made spaghetti with spicy sausage last night but I haven’t a clue what to make tonight since I won’t be home until later in the evening. Maybe I will have the Hub pick something up.
Sunny days and road trips, no matter how short.
What are you doing today?
