Boy is it HOT here!
Perfect day for a mid-afternoon peak-heat walk with friends! Still thinking about turning on the AC. It hasn’t happened yet!
New friends Alex, Eric and baby Finn met us for a walk. They here in Cville for an extended stay and have major roots in the city (and are moving back in time).
Faith and Tate joined us as well!
LOVE that we have friends willing to meet for walks!!
Cannot. Stop. Eating. The. Cracks.
And then got back up again for a tour of the BREWERY!
Including, the FIRST KEGGED BEER!!! Moose Drool Clone V 3.0! It has been tapped!
Cheers! [Says Finn!] It is going to be tough living with a keg of such great beer (and Matt Cracks!).
Everyone loved the beer!! I had a tiny tasting mug’s worth.
[Disclaimer: the baby did not really drink any!]
But he was very fun to play with! I told these guys I’d be happy to babysit anytime
And then Karen arrived! She has officially moved from Charlotte to Charlottesville!
This afternoon, the slow-cooker made us dinner. Recipe for this super-easy Butternut Fruit Soup is here!
No idea why I cooked a hot soup on a hot day! The yogurt and walnut topping MADE this soup!
Bread cubes on the side -
After dinner we went OUT – to see Brendan James!!!
Sparkling water for her, Magic Hat Octoberfest for him.
Three weeks ago, my yoga teacher from Charlotte, Tanner, bought me Brendan’s CD. [Tanner’s friend represents Brendan.] For three weeks I have been in love! It’s one of those CDs that you just throw on and listen to straight through. I love every single song.
And I loved them even more live! The show was fab.
[And I think I have the same crush on Brendan that I do on Tanner – they remind me of one another!!]
4 hours post dinner, on our bike ride home, my stomach growled. I don’t think I could have fallen asleep without a snack. I had a snack bowl of milk with raw oats and a sprinkle of granola!
And I could eat 10 more!
Instead, I’m going to bed so breakfast can come sooner
