¿Por Qué No?

This afternoon, Joel and I went for lunch at Por Qué No on Mississippi.  There was a line, of course, but not nearly so long a line as is often spotted at the Hawthorne location.  Once inside, we were charmed by the colorful, candlelit atmosphere.  The food was delicious!  It is so so fun to be able to go out to lunch on a Monday.  Now I'm going to go take a little nap and read my novel.  Oh how I love spring break.

Delightful Day

It's hard not to enjoy the first day of spring break.  I slept until a quarter past nine, ate a leisurely breakfast of sausage, fresh eggs and hashbrowns, drank not my usual one, but two cups of coffee and stayed in my pajamas until mid-afternoon!  Once I finally decided to don daytime clothing, I took care of some paperwork, got together three bags of clothes to get rid of and even took out the garbage.  That's when I realized how decidedly summery it felt outside.  I got together my things and headed out.  It was a lovely day for walking and being about town.  After getting a few errands taken care of, I had a cup of Tomato Orange soup at Elephant's and read the latest issue of Real Simple.  Now I'm home and you can't imagine how lovely it is to sit and read at this table on an evening like this one.  And, of course, it's needless to say that I am head over heels for our magnolia.  I'd like to give that tree a hug.

Signs of Spring

Can you believe these cherry blossoms?!  They are everywhere and smell amazing.


Our magnolia is coming to life!


Time for a little spring cleaning.


And much to my surprise, my cyclamen decided to bloom!
