Today was my sleep-in day (woo to the hoo), and when I got out of bed, this lovely breakfast was waiting for me. It looked like something off a breakfast buffet at a fine hotel. Not too shabby, Husband.
Once we were full and caffeinated, we went on a long walk. I’m having some meh pregnancy symptoms this weekend – I had to bail on a friends’ dinner last night because I felt so uncomfortable, and I felt sporadically strange all day today, too. My theory is that this baby is sitting pretty high up, squashing my lungs. Although you wouldn’t think it, actually going on a walk makes me feel a lot better than just sitting on the couch. So we managed to pound out 2.2 sweaty, slow, challenging miles – I think my running days are officially over. But that’s okay with me – can’t believe I made it to 28 weeks.
And then we headed Uptown for lunch!
We wandered around until we found a new restaurant for lunch – we opted for Mexican, just like last weekend. Apparently, we eat Mexican on Saturdays.
It was alright – it was actually one of those restaurant meals where you think, “I could make this at home for 1/3 the price,” which is always kind of disappointing. It was a mushroom, spinach, and goat cheese enchilada plate with not nearly enough sauce. But still – Mexican is always pretty good, even when it’s lackluster. Especially when you get to eat it outside, amidst beautiful skyscrapers and a sunny, bright blue sky. Bring on the salsa!
Thought of the Day:
“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” – Henry James
Where was Henry?
It’s funny to me that you titled this “Summer Afternoon.” While it is still summer, I’m a teacher, so I always define summer as May 10–August 17 (AKA, whatever my exact summer break is). I wrote a blog post today and talked about it being fall!
