This morning, we walked the puppy back into downtown, hit the happy local indy coffee shop for our morning dose of caffeine (with some of the best hot chocolate I've had in awhile), came home, got showers, and had breakfast (eggs, toast, and round two of dessert). We headed out to nearby Smallcity, where we wandered what is apparently a pretty thriving farmer's market on Saturdays, and is less so on Sundays, eventually got our afternoon dose of caffeine at yet another coffee shop (a passable cup of drip), wandered into the local hippy store, tried to wander into the bead store (closed), wandered into the indy bookstore, where we might have been tempted to buy books if it weren't for the apparent owner being way too pushy at me and a jerk to Zils, dithered about what to do about lunch, and eventually ended up at the mall, where we ate food court Chinese and browsed B&N, where Zils and I exchanged gift cards for books (magic, that), and then we headed back to her house by way of Petsmart. Then it was time to pack up and head home.
So, short version: coffee, books, lot of chatting, dessert. A pretty typical visit with the redzils.
To get home, we quite literally had to pass by my middle sister's exit, so we stopped and had dinner with her. She had leftover chicken stew from last night's chicken stew dinner at my childhood church, so that was supper, and let me tell you folks, that stuff is damn, damn good. She sent us home with quart, since she has an unholy amount in her freezer. We eventually got back on the road again, and made good time to home. The kitties were happy to see us.
Excellent weekend. I wish tomorrow weren't Monday. :) It's time to head to bed with a book, as the time change is messing with my head.
