We fired up the jalopy, Mom and I, and pointed her West. Off to the Ville of Mary.
Our first stop was to visit an old neighbor with a new child. As Mom busied herself with the newborn and mother, I enacted my brilliance of lowering my mental age to hang out with a 3 year old.
We played catch with a squishy basketball. Then the Tonka service station was brought out, where the top level became a “microwave”. Over to the mini-trampoline, then playing guitar and singing (him, not me!). Somewhere along the way the old snotty nose would rear it’s ugly head (him, not me).
3 year old’s mother, “Get a tissue, don’t use your shirt!”
To which the 3 year old wiped it on his shirt. This happened 3-4 times.
Here’s where I step in with my brilliance.
“Hey, 3 year old, wanna wipe your nose with a tissue and then go flush it?”
“Yeah!” Let’s just say their water bill may go up this month!
Next, the coffee house…
After the visit, Mom and I head over to the Vienna Coffee House. A place where they roast their own beans, bake their own pastries, make their own lunch items. Click the link to see the place.
On the menu for today was a creamy chicken & rice soup (fantastic), pimento cheese sandwich on wheat (homemade again), lava cake (divine), and my raspberry white mocha. This is my favorite away from home coffee house…sorry still love my Tin Roof Cafe…and I’ll be back. An added bonus is the fact that a block over one can pick up the Maryville Greenway and ride to wherever.
Next trip grab riding pal and hit the pavement.
By the way, did I mention that I’ve actually been working at loosing some weight? Simple plan, watch what calories I put in and what I bun. If I go over, I adjust how long I need to exercise (ride my bike). I make some better choices, but mostly eat what I want.
Yeah, so I’ll pop in with some numbers from time to time. At the moment, I’ve lost 9 pounds and don’t intend to find them.
Hope you’re all having a good ‘winter’ of riding…catch ya later!
