Today I spent the day in Brig O’ Doon Coffee House in lovely Ottsville, PA. Because Center Valley is not exactly the most hipster of places, there is a severe lack of coffee shops aside from Starbucks, and so Emily and I had to travel over a half hour away to find this oasis of tranquility. It was the perfect spot for us to work on our respective applications, and of course, catch up on life! I had a flavored coffee, recommended by Heather… Jamaican Me Crazy, which has hints of cinnamon, rum, and pecan. For lunch I had the baked potato soup, which came with garlic-y bagel chips… yummmm.
Tonight I made dinner for my family… vegan chili and sautéed kale (random aside… I just typed ‘sautéed’ into google and this came up… I thought it was a joke at first but then realized it wasn’t. Keep Rudolph away!) Anyway, it was definitely a new experience for them, but I think they liked it (enough to politely finish it, at least). This is a big step for a family that think macaroni and cheese casserole is a well-balanced meal. For dessert, Dan, Julie and I drove 15 minutes to Chick Fil A for free milkshakes, only to discover that sweet deal ended at 5 pm.
Sorry… no craft update today. I am almost finished with my Fellows application, and tomorrow I’m, like, going to like, the maaaaah-ll.
