For the record: blogosphere is not a real word. Nor is it a place. Please do not use this word in written or verbal communication anymore unless you want me to throw up on you. THE END.
Greetings from beautiful Bethel, CT! We’re hanging out at Molten Java, a nice cafe with good coffee, eclectically painted tables, a good view of town and wireless internet. Today has been a very pleasant day. I woke up around 6:30, did some laundry, went to the gym and had breakfast on the terrace. Ok, fine. Breakfast on the deck. Delicious. Then we cleaned up and popped in the car, arriving here in Bethel around 40 minutes later. The drive up was very scenic. Later on we’re heading to New Haven to have dinner at Sally’s Apizza. Yum, yum, yum.
What I’m drinking: Turkish Latte – espresso and milk with cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla. I can’t decide how I feel about cardamom.
Sunday morning I was planning on doing the 10k AIDS walk in NYC but I burned my shoulder and ended up missing the train because of it. Complicated. Jeremie looked online to find burn remedies for me and the two main suggestions we found were: honey and mustard. I have a small jar of honey and a big tub of mustard from Costco so I went with mustard. I have to say it mostly worked; it cooled down the burn fairly quickly and as of yet, there’s no blistering. I cut a pretty pathetic figure with mustard all over my shoulder.
Today I woke up tired and spent most of the day feeling tired. I’m still tired and my stomach hurts as well so I don’t have anything good to say. Sad times.
Jeremie and I went to GR this weekend to kick off the wedding planning. We looked at a bunch of places but haven’t really decided on anything yet as there’s a big difference in the kind of place you want if you’re having 200 or, let’s say, 382.
The one thing I can check off my list? I bought my dress! I tried on 10 or so, narrowed it down to 2 and picked one. Easy peasy.
Yesterday Jeremie and I had an errand to run in Old Lyme, CT (about twice as far from us as New Haven) so on the way back we decided to make a pit stop at the new-ish IKEA. We picked up a very nice black metal table and two chairs for our high deck, so we can sit out there and have coffee without going all the way down to the patio. Yes, it sounds a little crazy.
Late this afternoon, the rain and clouds that plagued us for the past two days, finally cleared. We set up the table and had fancy coffee drinks and read the paper. Very pleasant. I like my yard.
