Sunday Sampler

It's been a quiet weekend. Unlike last weekend though I actually left the house (stupid snow) and save for a short Saturday evening gloom streak, it's been pretty good. Here's the scoop:

Saturday met up with my friend M for some lunch at Gaia. Hadn't been there in a while. Their Build Your Own Burrito (and famous Gaia cookie) was my reward on long run Sundays when I was training for the 1/2 Marathon. Great refried black beans, sticky brown rice. I don't know their secret, but their brown rice is ALWAYS better than mine! Top both with melted cheese. Sides of sour cream, home made spicy chutney, lettuce, tomato and onion. Tuck it all into tortilla bites and you're on your way. So good and so good for you! Whole grains, beans, veggies and just enough sour cream and cheese to be a little naughty.

Worked on Christmas card project.
Talked to my nephew for his 8th birthday! It's ridiculous how fast those 8 years have gone! From all reports, he had quite the party. When we spoke, he sounded like a kid who had been partying all day, tired, but happy.

Today there was the weekly trip to Meijer. Ran into a friend I haven't seen in ages. He and I were in a friend's wedding together YEARS ago. He and his wife (? he didn't say they were married, but said "we" several times while we chatted) She was in another aisle, so I didn't get to meet her. We're basically neighbors. It astounds me how people can live so close to each other and NEVER see each other. Like how one of my high school crushes lived in a house one street away from me for a while. He was basically in my backyard and I never saw the kid!

Currently making dinner. French Onion Soup is simmering until the apple crisp is done baking. YUM! I can't wait!
