Rose, Sid and I ventured out into the Arctic tundra tonight, in search of grilled cheeses and hummus plates, and found them just a block away. Despite the snow, the cafe was hoppin.’ We Espresso 77 patrons aren’t daunted by snow!
The kids had a grand old time, eating, wrestling and who knows what else. And the moms got to chat over a glass of wine… or mineral water (sigh).
As if wrestling, tickling and running all around wasn’t enough. Rose felt compelled to work out on her new gymnastics bar, from the moment we got home, until we peeled her off of it, at 10 minutes past bedtime.
The wonderful thing about being a regular our favorite coffee shop, is that when the shop is closed for a private party, you might just get an email from one of the owners, letting you know they’ll be closed, so that you can make alternate plans.
Thanks to one of the kind owners at Espresso 77, we didn’t walk the extra block out of our way to find the shop closed. At the moment an extra block is feeling like an awful lot of distance to me, so I’m particularly grateful.
Instead, Rose chose pizza at Gianni’s, which was fine with me. She also took this photo of me with my 32 week protrusion, just for her auntie Trish, who can’t see us from all the way over there in Ireland.
We had a couple of really nice surprises this Lazy Thursday. The first was that Shane joined us for dinner at Espresso 77, for the first time ever!
The other surprise was that our good friend Sean bought us a really generous gift certificate, which should cover our Lazy Thursday dinners for many weeks to come, even if Shane decides to join us again.
Rose grabbed half her grilled cheese and disappeared underneath the table when I got my camera out. Thus the dramatically underpopulated image above.
It’s Lazy Wednesday. We did the usual, Espresso 77 (grilled cheese, strawberry lemonade, brownies). Dinner was excellent, I can’t say the same for my photos.
But getting dinner? It occurred to me today that he gets his own lunch, he’s probably able to get his own post-physical therapy dinner. Not to sound cruel or anything.
Shane didn’t seem to mind being tasked with taking care of himself, so Rose and I went out. Hooray for Espresso 77!
Rose got grilled cheese, as usual. I was finally able to try the eggplant salad sandwich, whenever I’ve ordered it previously, they’ve been out. I highly recommend it.
Rose sealed the meal with a black & white cookie, after which we went straight home to do more gymnastics.
