Why did no one ever tell me that tapas was Spanish dim sum? secret_hippie, aphereal and I went out and met rethought at La Tasca and had Tappas for a Tenner which was delicious. We hung out and visited then walked down hoping to get a pint at the Tunnels, which turned out to be closed. We turned around and walked down to the Noose and Monkey instead. Between the conversation and the lovely late sunset we came close to missing the last bus home (at 11:04). Today we are staying close to home so the family can recoup before flying down to London-town for a couple of days before heading back stateside. By about Saturday things will return to normal here for us. There's a lot of work to be done in the meantime. I've got to order software etc. for Sara's phone interviews, we need to reclaim the house and our routine, figure out our moneys and start looking at return tickets. We are crossing our fingers that our future will start to appear less hazy as we work at it, so send any extra good thoughts our way. We'll let you know what's happening as soon as we know what's happening (eep).
I think I need to get some soon. Although I am not so desperate for it that I started stuffing handfuls of this down my gullet as soon as I saw it. I didn't have that idea until another flickr user asked if I'd had any. They were just alone in a big crate on the pier, freshly harvested.
OK my mouth is seriously watering now...
( Daphne met Rona for the first time at Deutchesfest. )
( Duetchesfest was started by German wheat farmers... )
( Jayme: we came home with tasty plum kuchen. Yay! )
Saturday we got up early as is Rona's want (or is it wont?) and eventually made our way to the Fair to wander around and eat funnel cake. We also discovered that Rona likes barbecued beef sandwiches. While the food is not readily apparent this her during her meal:
( I am working to post more pictures of her more often for your heart melting convenience )
The poor thing has been teething and had a cold at the same time and she's all hoarse from the stuffed up nose and wheezing. Saturday night we watched some of our television (although we watch it slower now that we are at the end of the season and will have to wait until January for more) and the new Disney dub of Nausicaa (two thumbs up.) Sunday was yet more of doing nothing. Some house cleaning and a late lunch at Rock City (chicken quesadilla, Texas Egg Rolls and sauceless pizza with tomatoes, pepperoni, and cheese, cheese and cheese. Celebrated mine, my da's and our aunt Jan's birthday with barbecued chicken, ribs, spinach salad and potatoes and "tropical cheesecake."
Work is thankfully over for the day and secret_hippie is fixing up King Crab legs, and potatoes and corn and salad. The best birthdays are the one's with lots of good food. This one is ranking right up there with 29 and 28.
Edited to Add: and the Birthday Lambic, I forgot all about it. Yay!
