The beginnings of the most beautiful days of the year: CRUNCH + WISP = CRISP
Here’s the route we bike to Karen’s! It’s rather nice
Somebody give this girl a SHOWER!
But not without at least one killer hill in each direction 🙁 This one always leaves we out of breath.
Or a DONKEY!! This is just for you, Murph!!
Mucho progress was made on the house! Karen’s landlord agreed to paint, and it looks fabulous with the bright, airy color and her cool furniture!
And here’s the after:
Even though her dishes went from cabinet –> paper + box –> 1 day in a U-haul, she still insists on washing EVERYTHING again because she says a roach could have crawled on it!! That’s a lot of washing…
We wrapped up at the house around 4 and headed back to our place. I had a Larabar – the Chocolate Nut Brownie – for a snack.
It had been in my bag and was all melted! Yummy. I liked the flavor, but I really don’t crave a gooey chocolate brownie most afternoons. It was almost too dessert like for a snack for me.
We did inherited Emily + Casey’s big flatscreen (thanks guys!!!). But there’s a humming / vibration noise that’s pretty bad so we’re deep in inspection stage. We THINK we have solved it with electrical tape, but I’m still pretty nervous..
I took a hot shower and was presented with a mini mug of Moose Drool for cocktail hour
Dressed for dinner!
‘Twas a lovely walk over to Fry’s Spring Station
A very cool old gas station-turned-restaurant
I wasn’t really in a beer mood, but they had a few fun ones on tap and a beer sampler, so I got Matt to share it with me so I could try them.
All from the Jefferson Street Brewery in Lynchburg:
- Light Golden Ale
- Orange Honey Wheat
- Amber Ale
- Chocolate Stout
To eat I started with the chopped salad. Could have used a bit more chopped veggies and a bit less chopped other stuff
And we split two delicious pizzas
The Herbivore, which include artichokes, olives, sundried tomatoes
And the Wild Mushroom, always a fav!!
I had 3 slices – delish!
Matt and I are going to snuggle on the couch with a movie. Karen’s already in bed! She’s worn out from the move.
Tomorrow = Farmer’s Market!
