Today has been a pretty awesome day, if you like lazy weekends. We started the day by sleeping ridiculously late, then got up and went out for breakfast, something we haven't done in a long time. Our favorite breakfast joint is also enjoyed by other humans and is often quite crowded, with people waiting to be seated. In the winter it can be uncomfortable when stupid people foolishly hold both sets of doors open simultaneously, thereby freezing out the entire restaurant. Apparently some people do not realize the point of a vestibule in cold climates. Very frustrating.
Anyway, our morning somnolence meant we were late enough so there were no such issues today: the crowds had dispersed. After our meal we stopped at the big box book store around the corner and got coffee drinks, browsing as we sipped our mochas. Do they pipe that delightful booky smell into those stores? We ended up with a few bargain books and SodaBoy splurged on a nice architecture book. When we got home, we shoveled the driveway, then headed out back for a walk in the woods.
After our walk, I made a cup of my favorite tea, an expensive treat that I reserve for weekends; I drink way too much tea to afford Rishi on a daily basis. Then I settled down on the new couch to do some reading while SodaBoy played the guitar, working on his newest song. Any day that includes sleeping in, banana pancakes, a walk in the woods, and me reading on the couch with a nice cup of tea? It's a good one.
